“Your best option if you want cheap with no frills”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

This Microtel Inn is a good at what it intends to do. It is my preferred choice in town if I need something cheap and simple. Rooms are clean yet small with some a little rough around the edges. Beds are comfortable. Front desk staff is supportive. Free continental breakfast is satisfactory. Location is convenient to shopping and dining, 5-10 minutes to VT campus.

I am sensitive to cigarette smoke but did not experience smoke smells as noted in other reviews

Husband & I have stayed here many times. They changed the rooms so the first floor is all non-smoking, The other two floors have smoking rooms on both ends of the hall. The smoke smell is very strong throughout the hall. We had the last room in the hall before the smoking room. The only available room on the first floor was across from loud vending machines, which I knew would prevent me from sleeping. So, we endured the horrible smell from the elevator to our room. I can't believe the management doesn't realize people renting a non-smoking room don't want to have to smell smoke to get to their room.

The room itself, a queen suite,was fine as always.Nothing fancy but fancy isn't expected at Microtel. The cleaning in the bathroom was bad. There were at least 20 hairs in each corner next to the tub plus dust & in all bathroom corners.
Breakfast is minimal but they did have fresh fruit, a nice touch. Coffee is not drinkable in my opinion. There is a Sheetz nearby so good, reasonably priced coffee is available there.
We'll never stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay on first floor unless you want to smell cigarette smoke as soon as you exit the elevator.

First, let me say I'm picky about where I stay. I like places that are clean, quiet, comfortable, and have good customer service. I was unsure about staying here because I had never stayed at a Microtel. However, I just needed a place to sleep for the night en route to Washington, DC, so I read the reviews and decided to give this property a try.

Needless to say, I made the right choice. Although not fancy or loaded with amenities, the hotel was clean, the bed was very comfortable and it was indeed quiet. The hotel is located in a nice business park, so there is little noise. It also seemed safe. The three employees I encountered were very nice, and all spoke English! The rooms are small, but well-designed and functional. Wi-Fi worked well and was free. Flat-screen TV was mounted above closet and the bathroom was a little nicer than expected. Continental breakfast was above average.

Unless you require a large room, this property provides a great bang for your buck.

Room Tip: I stayed on the top floor, which was nice and quiet.

I have been staying at this hotel 3 to 4 times a year for the past 3 years while my daughter has been attending Virginia Tech.

This is a typical Microtel facility; meaning it is no frills, clean, well located and offered at a value price. We almost always get the room with two queens since it is only 7$ more than the single queen and provides slightly more space. Yes, the rooms are small, there are no desk lamps, no blow-dryers in room etc. This is a budget hotel but being a Microtel it has a stark modern feel and is fairly new. They also offer a decent complimentary continental breakfast. The staff is almost always really pleasant and helpful, with the lone exception being the last time we were there (I hope that is not a fore-bearer of things to come).

The advantages of this Microtel are that it is very conveniently located: just 10 minutes drive from Virginia Tech and only a few minutes from all the shopping and restaurants that you could ever want. We have stayed at other hotels that are slightly closer to VT (8 minutes by car), but almost twice the price. We have also stayed at hotels that are walking distance to VT. This is nice, but are even more than twice the price. I think better to save your money to go to the "Our Daily Bread Bakery" for breakfast and Cabo for fish tacos (both in Blacksburg).

We had a room with 1 queen bed, and although the room was small, there was adequate places to put our stuff. The mattress was very comfortable, but I found the pillows to be too soft. It was very clean. I'd stay here again.
