Days Inn was a low price motel. It probably is a good place to stay for no more than two nights. There probably better choices if one is to stay longer.

Great price. Close to VT campus.

Posted 22-Feb-2015
Hotel front desk clerks were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean, warm, and quiet. We were snowed in for a day and having a mini fridge and microwave in room was very helpful. It's not a fancy place by any means but very accommodating. I'd stay again. Great price.

Cons: Breakfast, although a variety, the biscuits and eggs were a little dry. Pastries were good and fresh. Maybe add ice water to drink also.
Location: There were restaurants near by. We were there for Virginia Techs graduation.
Front office staff were very efficient, very nice, even called to see if our room was ok. And it was ok. We could tell there had been upgrades however, the upgrades weren't professional quality. Example, the bar in the shower had grouting put around it, but it was not cleaned up. The tub had a cover put on it, but there was two holes in the cover.

Cons: They need suitcase carts so that you can roll your suitcases and personal items to your room.
I was expecting a lot more from a convention hotel. The staff were sour and did not respond to requests. Had to go to the desk to pick up requests that weren't delivered. I will never return to this hotel or recommend it.

Attended Football Game

Posted 1-Dec-2014
Pros: The location..That's it.
Cons: Where should I begin?
This Motel is filthy. The carpet in my room was filthy. It looked like someone went to town eating a box of crackers as there were tons of crumbs all over the floor including the bathroom. The bedspread should be burned and the pillows are cinder blocks in disguise. You are better off sleeping in your car. The staff was very pleasant, I must say...

I almost gave up on Days Inn!

Posted 24-Nov-2014
Dollar for dollar this was the best Days Inn. The facility was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was more than sufficient and fresh, with plenty of coffee. The staff was professional.

Good location near the college.

Posted 21-Nov-2014
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. No traffic noise.
Cons: Cleaning the smoking rooms better!
Location: Just down the road from Virginia Tech, a good place to stay when visiting the college that is reasonably priced.
Location was good for what we needed (near VA Tech but more reasonably priced). Beds were comfortable. However, I booked a Non-Smoking room through Expedia, but when we got there ended up in a smoking room, which was AWFUL (unless you're a smoker)! They didn't have another room to put us in, even though I had called ahead and confirmed my arrival 3 hours prior (we got in late due to traffic). The smell was overpowering and I didn't sleep well. The Manager said they've had issue with Expedia because they will book a particular room without it really being cleared as available by the hotel. The Manager was very apologetic and made it right for me the next day. Otherwise the food was fair (very typical Days Inn breakfast), and soundproofing average (the walls were better than the door and window - noises from older "kids" in the parking lot outside was keeping us awake)

Good hotel close to VT

Posted 18-Nov-2014
Pros: Staff, breakfast, cleanliness.
Cons: The outdoor corridors, small gym and stairs to parking lot.
Location: Location is a bit isolated but short drive to Virginia Tech.
This is a decent place to stay when visiting Blacksburg. The hotel is older but our room had a new microwave and refrigerator slightly larger than is typical. It was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and the staff very friendly. Checkin and out was very fast.

Non-smoking room wasn't

Posted 17-Nov-2014 on Hotels.com
I had reserved a non-smoking room and even though there was a sign on the door designating it as a non-smoking room, it REEKED of cigarette smoke. It needed a complete cleaning, painting and probably all the carpet and furniture replaced. On the plus side, the breakfast was nice.
