Days Inn - Blacksburg, VAPosted 29-Sep-2014
Pros: Excellent breakfast and support from front office.
Cons: The maid service was marginal at best. No replacement soap, sampoo, etc, or in room coffee service in four days.
Location: Location is very good for access to Virginia Tech events.
We were originially in an upstairs room that was very nice, but we do not do stairs very well. They were able to move us to a downstairs room that was not as nice but without stairs, we were very happy.

A standard, middle of the run motelPosted 22-Sep-2014
Pros: There was nothing to brag about
Cons: Sort of dated inside and out
Location: Virginia Tech University was a couple of miles away
The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The motel was very ordinary. There are many motels in this category.

Our room had recently had a "facelift," but that was not sufficient to make up for the very thin walls, making for a noisy stay. Carpet and floors could have been cleaner. Linens were clean but worn. Had to ask for extra blanket as room temp could not be easily regulated and the ac/heat was very, very loud. Room was near laundry and where the staff gathered to smoke - so even with a non-smoking room we had to walk through the employees smoking outside to get to and from breakfast. Breakfast was basic but good and the staff were working hard to accommodate the large crowd. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

August 2014 weekend ballgamePosted 2-Sep-2014
Pros: The fact that it is close to Tech and the stadium.
Cons: The place can use updating and also they could improve on their breakfast. It was rather tasteless.
Location: Proximity to the beautiful Va. Tech campus and the town of Blacksburg. Also close to numerous restaurants.
Our room was full of cigarette smoke smell and got in our clothes. I had requested a smoke-free room, but found out that it wasn't when we arrived. I was hoping for a romantic stay but this ruined the mood.We were choking and coughing, romance was the last thing on our minds, oxygen was we were lusting for!! Now all I smell is cigarettes, our clothes have to be thrown away. I thought this was 2014 not 1964. When you request a smoke free room that is what you expect to get and if it is not available you should say "not available" I am disappointed in Expedia and will never use you again.

Unexpected pleasent place to stayPosted 25-Aug-2014
Pros: Location is only five minutes driving from Virginia Tech University and Christiansburg.
Cons: Just introduce new towels or get better washer machines.
Location: The hotel is close to the Virginia Tech University including Lane Stadium. Moreover, within three minutes of major department stores & restaurants.
Nice pleasent staff. Rooms very spacious. Beds are comfortable. Need to upgrade their towels was on the only issue.

Close to VA Tech but disappointingPosted 23-Aug-2014
Pros: The cost of the hotel was excellent and the front reception staff was friendly.
Cons: The hotel is badly in need of a renovation.
I was not expecting a lot from this hotel but it was still disappointing. The front registration staff was polite and helpful. Unfortunately our room had seen better days. The only path to our room was one that we had to walk through the housekeeper's smoking area. That was not a pleasant experience. But the most upsetting part of our stay was breakfast. We had just finished eating our breakfast when a hotel employee came out from the back and started spraying what was obviously insecticide all over the breakfast area including where the food was being served. We never ate breakfast there again for the remainder of our stay.

motel reviewPosted 6-Aug-2014

Great price but lacking in other areas.Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: The price was very low and appealing. The staff members were very friendly and helpful.
This hotel was greatly cheaper than other local hotels. It is pet-friendly and has smoking rooms too. Our family was overwhelmed with the amount of smoke smell. We could smell smoke in our room and we did not have a smoking room. This is a two-level hotel which does not have elevators therefore be advised if you need a ground level room. The breakfast was nice but on our second morning, there was not enough scrambled eggs for all guests wanting them. Ninety minutes before breakfast closing, the staff member was asked by our party if there were more eggs. She said there was not anymore that she could serve. The staff member working in the breakfast area was very attentive and kept refilling when items were low for other items. Our room was not cleaned after we were away all day. The front desk clerk, Jeremy, was very helpful getting us additional supplies for our room.

Good hotel near Virginia Tech at a Good PricePosted 27-Jul-2014
Location: It is close to Virginia Tech
Good location, though you may miss it if you are familiar with area. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. I liked that it had a mini fridge. We stayed on a Friday night and it looked pretty full but no incidents of noise or anything like that. The breakfast was just fine. Coffee was good. They had the usual offerings that you find in a breakfast. There were sketches of different kinds of trains on the walls which were nice. There was a pool but we did not use it.
