Came to visit Virginia Tech for fall open house weekend and Engineering school interest session. Two nights at hotel in a "suite" with two queen beds and pullout sofa bed. Not cheap for Saturday night but better for the second night. The accommodations are typical for a Holiday Inn. Nothing special. Room clean but the bathroom not great, very small....

We do not have children at Virginia Tech. However we wanted to see the school and discovered this hotel is in a perfect location both for touring the school and for gaining access to the various nearby highways. The hotel has comfortable rooms and helpful staff.

We highly recommend this hotel. A newly acquired property by Holiday Inn, the new owners have done a complete overhaul (including the equipment in the gym). The beds are comfortable with 'soft' and 'hard' pillows; the suites are spacious allowing a family space to spread out; the hot breakfast options are great; and Juan, who was managing the breakfast buffet,...

Had a great stay here- the staff was courteous, the hotel is very up to date and clean, and was very quiet. For people who complain about price, shop around, it's very competitive for a college town that makes its money off visitors. I highly recommend this place, great location as well.

We've stayed here since it first opened under another name. Holiday Inn Express must be doing something right, because the hotel seems much busier than it used to be. A complimentary breakfast is available and it's not bad...scrambled eggs, turkey and pork sausages, cereals, oatmeal, toast/breads and sweet rolls. Juices, coffee, etc... Rooms are generous in size, in addition to...

When traveling we normally stay at Holiday Inn Express. This one is pretty much the same as all the others but because of its prime location next to VT the hotel feels it's okay to charge quite a bit more. Because of this I probably would choose to stay elsewhere in the future. One definite positive was Juan the breakfast...

I am normally a fan of the Holiday Inn Express hotels but not this time. Check in was fine. I was informed that breakfast was served at 6:30. I asked if coffee was available prior to that time and was told it was available 24/7. The next morning I was up early and headed down for coffee about 6 am....

We booked a king bed suite with kitchen. When we checked in, I asked if we would be away from the elevators. Allen at the front desk said that the room was not too close to the elevators. Surprise! The room was right next to the elevators. We complained to him to see if we could be moved, but he...
