BW/Red Lion Inn-Blacksburg, VA

I was just wondering if the Red Lion Inn (formerly a Best Western), located at 900 Plantation Rd in Blacksburg, VA still exists. It is no longer listed on this website and I am having trouble finding information regarding this hotel. I do know that it lost its BW franchise not too long ago, but I am not sure of the current status of this hotel. Any information regarding this hotel would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just drove through the parking lot, around to the back, and back out the main entrance yesterday (Sat, 25 Nov 06). All signage is gone. All the guest rooms are completely empty (the curtains are gone, so you can see in) and there appeared to be some restaurant equipment piled by the front door under the porte cochere. It was sad to see the place looking so abandoned, especially with all the brown leaves piled up against the obviously unused doors. It used to be so grand. I graduated in '76 and have fond memories of the place

Thought some may find this interesting.

About a week after bulldozers began dismantling the Red Lion Inn, Blacksburg Town Council will help decide what rises up in its place.
