A place to lay your head for cheap - nothing more.

Helpful and very nice folks at front desk. Pleasantly decorated, but room was old and musty. Carpet sticky. Mystery stains on comforter. Bathroom ceiling patched and looked like ready to fall in. Area around showerhead had been patched with painted-over tape and was peeling off. Front rail of clothes rack had been broken off and not repaired. All about what you'd expect for a cheap hotel in a college town. I've stayed at worse.

This hotel was a let down

Pros: Staff was nice
Cons: Clean the rooms better, put a coffee maker in each room
Location: About 10 minutes from the football stadium and downtown Blacksburg, right off the interstate
First, I should say that we didn't realize we were booked in a smoking room until we arrived at the hotel and all the other rooms were booked, so the room smelled awful. We tried keeping the door open for a few hours until we went to bed, but it was still really bad. However, that isn't the reason I'm writing a bad review because I realize that isn't the hotels fault. What is their fault is the cleanliness of the room, which was terrible. The bed sheets and linens were yellow and had cigarette burns in them, there were cigarette butts on the floor, the bathroom floor had hair and dirt everywhere, overall it was just a gross room. The beds were also very uncomfortable and the pillows flat. Also the door to the room was broken and barely stayed shut, so we had to prop a chair in front of the door at night. We stayed here because it was a game weekend and it was the best price, but my advice to anyone looking would be to spend the extra money a night to stay in a better hotel. If you do stay here double check the smoking status because they told us they have a "spray" that masks the smell ,but that is not the case.

Was a good stay for the money

I was there last october 21 , 2010 . I think we got a good deal for the money. The room was clean . Front desk person was very helpfull and friendly. Continental breakfast was not very big but it was good enough for us. We will stay here again if we visit this area again.

Only as a Last Resort...

We stayed one night. It was NOT a good experience. First of all, the rate was pretty high for that area. It was due to Virginia Tech students' returning. We were in the back section on the second floor. The clerk at check-in told us the TV was "dark" and he would change it if we wanted.--I thought it was strange that he knew it was a problem.-- When we tried it, it didn't work so he did change it. The room was musty. There was some mold on the carpet and stains. The bed was very hard and the worst thing was that I got bug bites! I would not stay there again. If it is the ONLY place available in the area, then it would be the "last resort"...

Good night stay

Hotel room was very clean. The front office stuff were friendly. Not very attractive breakfast but it was Ok for the room rate. Can be a good choice to stay here if you are traveling and don't don't want to spend a fortune for hotel and breakfast.

Good deal, great room

Great location, only a few minutes from tons of Restaurants and V tech. Room was very clean and staff were friendly. Fridge and microwave were great bonus in a regular room.

Unsecure/Filthy/Disrepair

Door didn't lock/unlock properly. Soiled bedding. Base of toilet leaked out onto the floor. Tub stopped up. Heat not on in room when we arrived (approx. 32 degrees outside, and we could see our breath in the room). With the help of the hair dryer, we finally got the room a comfortable temperature around 2 AM. Only stayed one out of two nights booked, and only stayed the first night because other hotels were full. Will never consider this place again!
