Nice fitness center and well-maintained pool. Indoor fireplace. Self-serve coffee 24 hours. Friendly (albeit spotty availability of) staff. Clean bed. Hair in towels however.

The room was not cleaned and when we asked for it to be cleaned, they only just gave us new towels

Room was beautiful, very clean, and comfortable. All the furnishings were very functional. Morning breakfast was available, food was very good, and intelligently prepared and organized to keep guests socially distanced. Will definitely stay here next time I am in town

Fairly new property (only 3 years old). Everyone and everything was great! We’ve stayed at many properties in and around Blacksburg and this was a great find!

Proximity to campus, great space, clean, large room.

Very nice hotel, very close to my family we were visiting, friendly staff and they accept pets. My only complaint is that parking was very limited.

New, very nice, great staff, excellent location for driving and walking to campus/shops/grub/pubs; very good value. Ask for a higher floor room facing the campus (southern side of building) for nicest views.

I first stayed at this hotel in March 2018 and was happy to stay there again for my July 2018 travel. I booked the second stay online and requested a room with a walk-in-shower not a tub. During my March trip, I stayed in a suite with just such a walk-in shower, however when I checked in on this July trip, I was told that no king bedroom suites have walk-in-showers, just tubs, and was given a room with a tub. I knew this to be false, as I'd stayed in just such a room, but having already been told no rooms were ready and, so, having to schlep all our bags (minus the suitcases, which the deskclerk offered to hold) back out to the car and then back into the hotel again once I was called, I was too exhausted to argue. I knew that the positioning of all the fixtures in the bathroom with the walk-in-shower worked for me and had to hope those in the tub bathroom would, too. I was wrong. The toilet was too tight to the wall on its left side--something that hadn't been a problem at all in the shower room because it was set out from walls and vanity--and the tub prohibited me from showering either of the days of my stay, given a recent hip injury. Apart from all the aggravation and physical discomfort, what really gets me is that the clerk lied to me: there clearly is at least one one-bedroom suite with a walk-in shower and that's why I paid more for that type of room, in order to get the walk-in shower and a roomy toilet. Wish I'd saved my money and stayed at the Hilton!

Close to everything we were doing while at Tech, plus clean and comfortable.

Enjoyed my stay and the hotel is awesome . The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a walking distance to the college.
