“Comfortable Hotel right downtowm”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

We stayed during Christmas break so the town was quiet and so was the hotel. The rooms are small but have everything you need- including a small sitting room with a flat screen TV, sofa and small sink/wet bar. The beads and pillows are very comfortable. The front desk employee was very helpful and the lobby is very nice. There is also a small covered parking garage for guests.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the back of the hotel to avoid the street noise.

The Main Street Inn is a new hotel (about two years old) with modern conveniences and old world style. The suites are not large but are well designed. All include a seating area with hide-a-bed and chair, tables, a tv, and a small sink, refrigerator, and microwave. No dishes are provided. The decor is tasteful, not flashy. The beds are comfortalble. We could not get on the wi-fi, and it took a long time for the staff to rectify the problem. I don't know if that is typical or a one-time-problem. There is no breakfast per se, but each morning in the lobby you can get fruit, small pastries, juice, and coffee and tea, without any extra charge. There is space for eight cars in the attached covered garage. If you miss out on that there is free parking for hotel guests in the garage across the street. The staff members were all professional and friendly.

The Main Street Inn is a quaint little hotel located a few blocks away from the Virginia Tech campus. There are also shops, restaurants and stores nearby. My husband and I stayed here during the ACC Swimming and Dive championships, February 15-18th (held in Christiansburg) and are very happy with our stay. The hotel lobby looks just like the website’s photo - warm and inviting, a great place to visit with friends or read the paper. Though no breakfast is offered, there are always apples, and bakery items as well as coffee, tea and juice in the lobby. The hotel is quiet – something I really appreciate because I am a super light sleeper! I was a little fearful of our room, 303, located directly across from the elevator – but didn’t hear a thing! All rooms are considered suites. The living area has a sofa bed, a bar area with coffee maker, refrigerator, and a microwave. There is a very small flat-screened TV placed high on the wall – due to the LCD screen, the location makes it difficult to see images well. The room is quite small – just large enough for the sofa sleeper to pull out.
The bedroom area is a bit larger, with a table (a desk would have been nice) and a wonderfully comfortable bed. There is also a wall-mounted TV, larger and easier to see.
The bathroom has a granite countertop and newer shower. Décor is moderate at best, but the rooms were clean and appealing. Our housekeeper used a strong “linen spray” that had an offensive aerosol hairspray smell to me. We asked her if she could stop using it and we only had to ask once.
We never had an issue with parking, but the area behind the hotel is quite limited. We asked if we could park there and were given a parking ticket to place in the car.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Main Street Inn and would definitely recommend this hotel!

What a nice place to stay! Front desk staff was efficient and nice. Coffee, biscotti and apples in the lobby were a nice touch, and there were granola bars in the morning for when we needed a quick bite on our way out. The room was small, but beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Plenty of clean towels, cushy comfortable bedding, and Backstreets Restaurant right next door. I will stay there again! They offer a AAA discount for those on a budget also - that gave me 10% off the online rate.

I am a business traveler who likes to support the mom and pop businesses around my 5 state territory. The lovely folks at the Modern Language dept at Virginia Tech recommended this inn for my recent stay. It was very nice, spotless. The charm began with the 2 lovely students running the front desk. Great value for the $. No dining on site but Starbucks was across the road and a great Vegetarian restaurant around the corner (next to the movie theatre for breakfast too!). Very convenient to the nice eateries up and down Main Street. This is a keeper and my place of choice when on the road again to VT.
