“Everything a business traveler needs, plus CHARM”
Reviewed 30 March 2009

My comfortable room, the convenient and free wireless internet, the interesting house, the friendly staff, the array of fresh cookies (Friday Afternoons), the delicious breakfasts, and the walk-to-anyplace-in-downtown-Blacksburg-or-on-the-VT-campus location were outstanding. This location provided an antidote to the corporate hotel scene that burns out road warriors. I'd stay at Clay Corner again in a hearbeat!

I stayed with my wife and daughter at Clay Corner Inn. It was the first time we had spent time in Blacksburg, our grandchild lives there. There are only a few employees and the intimate setting makes you feel like you are at home when you walk through the door. The apartment-like suites are beautiful, each with its own theme and a fully equipped kitchen right outside your bedroom (we cooked some of our own meals to avoid spending too much). The prices were cheaper than local chains with a full private breakfast included and the other amenities (like a cookie bar) were incredible. Clay Corner Inn is only a block away from VT campus, Lane Stadium and Downtown Blacksburg. I look forward to staying again in the summer, there is a beautiful pool and we will be bringing our dog next time! I'm going to rant about this place to everyone, it is a secret treasure!

Rooms are delightful and main area has great fireplace with hot coffee and tea
alwauys available. You could not ask for a more relaxing Inn with a beautiful
pool for summer swimming. Breakfast selection is very good with everthing
prepared in their commerical kitchen.

We were visiting our son, VT student. The location could not have been better for any activity at the college. Room was very clean and comfortable. The whole place was very clean and welcoming. Breakfast the next morning was delicious! We seriously could not have enjoyed it more, and just hope we are fortunate enough to be able to get a room for our son's graduation.

If you are going to Blacksburg, and there's an vacancy... grab it, you won't be sorry!

This was my first experience with a bed and breakfast and it was great. The innkeeper and staff were welcoming and friendly and the facilities were all very nice - pretty much spotless. Breakfast was delicious, and snacks and drinks were available in the kitchen of the building where our room was located. It was very quiet (on a side street with little traffic) but still a great location close to the university and downtown area. The main area was welcoming, with a cozy fireplace.

We had a wonderful party here for my extended family to celebrate my son's graduation. We had a kitchen, living room, and plenty of private rooms for family and guests to enjoy the stay. Located close to campus, it was perfect.

Have stayed at the Clay Corner Inn for many years, my last visit in July 2008. Ideally located in the heart of Blacksburg, just a few steps from both the Virginia Tech campus and downtown Blacksburg, the Inn has become a second home. Staff is friendly and efficient, making guests feel very much at home. The property is beautifully maintained both inside and out. There are a variety of room sizes, each with its own distinctive decor and each have all the amenities of a modern hotel. Beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is delicious with both hot and cold selections. Clay Corner also has a swimming pool and deck area great for summer relaxing. I have stayed in many hotels/inns throughout the world and the Clay Corner Inn is one of the very best. I look forward to my next visit.
