Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HokieSunshine This hotel's age is showing
The hotel sits on the outskirts of Christiansburg about 15 minutes from the heart of the Virginia Tech campus. Right off of Roanoke street and 81/460, the hotel deals with a little road noise, but not enough to be a huge issue.
What is an issue is this: the hotel's age is showing. While the lobby is clean and fine (as is the breakfast area and community areas), the rooms are not. Ours was musty, most likely due to the through-the-wall AC unit that might've been leaking. The white comforter had stains on it and worst, the beds both squeaked horribly, keeping everyone awake.
We would have switched hotels, but it was move-in weekend for Tech, so all the rooms were booked. I tried to call the front desk on a few occasions, but they never answer.
What's good about the hotel? Well, you need to use a key to open the sliding doors at all times. I like that measure of security. However, that was offset by housekeeping keying into our room while we were changing. Apparently our late checkout request hadn't made it to them.
The breakfast is basic and standard. I like that it's free and easy... but it's eggs, biscuits, sausage gravy, pancakes, all served on styrofoam and with plasticware.
We won't be coming back to this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nina43 This will become my home away from home!
This was the best stay I have had in a long time. Everything was excellent. The facilities were clean, the beds comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The gym was an actual gym and very roomy. The pool was great! The kicker was the evening pancakes that the my boys got to make and the variety of the breakfast choices. This will become our home away from home!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tired woman new decor but bad beds and toilets
The staff was very kind and nice. The decor is new and nicely updated. However, the beds were terrible and made lots of noise when turning over. We didn't sleep very well. Water pressure in toilets not good. One stopped up and asked for fix. Left room and 5 hours later still not done. When told desk they did send someone over ASAP. Breakfast was great and staff great. The maids were nice. Another room we we in another time the toilet was spraying out water. We put a cup over it and told the staff. Hope they fixed it for the next guest. There is no pay per view or way to watch movies either. :-(

Did not spend a lot of time at the hotel as we were moving our daughter in for college. It would have been nice after two days of moving to have a dinner and drinks in the Hotel. But the Hotel did not have that service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hoomee Very nice stay
We had a positive experience. Very friendly staff and comfortable bed/pillows. Only complaint was the tub surround looked like there had been a leak that was not well repaired; this did not effect the shower, which was very good. Overall, would recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by duneslider Pretty good value
This was pretty comparable to other hotels in this price range. The breakfast was pretty good and because of our work we ended up taking advantage of the late night pancakes, that ended up being a huge plus on this particular trip.
