Red Carpet Inn

This is an excellent location to visit Virginia Tech. The hotel provides all of the basics, is clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly, and even remembered me from past trips. Price is reasonable.I recommend it highly.

Short Stay in Blacksburg

I was in Blacksburg to drop my daughter off at Virginia Tech and move her into her apartment. I've stayed at the Red Carpet Inn several times over her years at VT, and have always been very pleased by the hotel. It's not a swank, upscale hotel, but it is very clean, very comfortable and very affordably priced. It is located just minutes from the Virginia Tech campus, as well as restaurants and shopping. You just can't beat this hotel for the price and all that is offered.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Almost, but not quite, within walking distance of the Virgnia Tech campus and what I would consider downtown Blacksburg.

Great Stay

I was helping my sisters move in to VT and just needed a cheap place to stay for one night. The bed was huge and comfortable, bathroom was clean, staff was friendly, and the location was convenient. It's not really walking distance to downtown Bburg/campus, but it's only about a 5 minute drive. There's also a shopping center with restaurants right across the street and Kroger right down the street. I would definitely recommend this place!

A good room, cheap, with excellent owners

Yes, the hotel is older, simpler. So what? Clean, quiet, decent towels, plenty of soap, small footprint that allows pulling right up to my room. The owner is very polite & helpful. Need a ride to the Blacksburg airport? No problem.

Great Value - Friendly Owners

My husband and I stayed at Red Carpet for five days. We weren't sure what to expect, given the low nightly rate. We discovered that the owner and his wife were wonderful: responsive to our requests and our room was always very clean. The inn is fortuitously located close to great restaurants and the city center as well. We'll definitely be staying here on our next trip to Blacksburg!

Great deal and service!

I got in late and was greeted by the owner/manager Harry. He was so wonderful and helpful. He asked if he could get me ice to bring to my room because it was late. His thoughtfulness was ongoing. My room actually had a king and a double bed, more than I ask for. The shower and air worked wonderfully! The TV was super and bed very comfortable. Lots of great pillows. It is an old motel but they have worked hard to make it clean and nice. Also I needed to have a late check out and that was no problem as well. I would return because of such great caring service. The price was a great bargain. Thanks for making my time in Blacksburg pleasurable!

very bad, don't stay there

I stayed at this place, everything is simply awful, bad service, bad old rooms with dirty walls and bathroom door, very hard beds, bathroom smelled very bad that I had to keep the door shut all the time, arrived at night and there was no one in the what so called lobby, after a long time someone came in sleepy of course, on the next day there was no one again and his wife I guess came after a very long time (from breakfast) eating in pajamas! no one even said anything that there was a breakfast (if we can call it so) I didn't miss much coffee and mini cupcakes. manager kids playing around, really felt like I am staying at there house and not at a hotel... would never stay there again... definetly not recommended.

Poor Service

I booked several rooms for 3 nights. Upon attempting to check in, the desk clerk was more concerned with my method of pre-payment than what rooms I had reserved. It took over 20 minutes and phone calls to the owner(who was never on the premises our entire stay). Our reservation was finally confirmed and we got checked in. Upon returning after a long day, we discovered our room had never been cleaned while we were out, no fresh towels, TP, trash removed, etc. We approached the night clerk and asked for new towels and TP. After reluctantly giving us our items, she informed us not to disturb her anymore that night because she was trying to sleep. REALLY!!! Needless to say, with what we paid and what we got, we will never bother them with our room needs again! Stay elsewhere!
