This was our second stay at Clay Corner Inn and it won't be the last, as our daughter is only a freshmen at VT. The location is perfect - within 2 blocks walk to her dorm, bookstore, library, and Main Street. So we park the car at the Inn and don't have to worry about parking on campus or on... More

Why would you stay at a chain hotel when you can have the personal attention, best location, and fabulous gourmet breakfasts that come with Clay Corner Inn - all for the same price.

Clay Corner Inn is so convenient to both downtown Blacksburg and VPI. The breakfasts were wonderful. Everything was clean and fresh. The pool and grounds were lovely. The hosts were friendly and informative. Couldn't ask for a better Bed and Breakfast experience.

Our room was very hot when we arrived. Nikki explained it was too early to turn on the air conditioning. That was understandable but the window could have been opened & the ceiling fan turned on before we arrived. In any case, we made do. The owners offered us another fan when we prepared for bed but by that time,... More

Thank you very much for your understanding. I think what happened was we tried to appease some other guests who asked us to turn the air conditioning off due to the cold night the previous night. April is always a tricky month but you are absolutely correct and we definitely will implement opening the windows and having the fan on... More
