Stayed here for VA Tech family weekend for the first time and it was an overall fabulous place. Clean rooms, friendly service and fabulous breakfasts... the cookie bar on Saturday was an added bonus. I highly recommend staying here!!
I see you are a sweet tooth person who enjoyed our homemade complimentary cookies, I believe I know just who you are and had so much fun having you stay here with us. Remember that our cookies are always changing so next time you stay there will be more for you to taste!

The Inn is very well kept, charming and cozy. The complimentary water, soda and tea was very nice after a very busy day at VT. The breakfast was absolutely fabulous and made a great start to our Day. Nicky is very friendly and helpful. A wonderful stay with the advantage of being within walking distance of the Virginia Tech campus.
Thank you for your kind words, I/we very much appreciate them. It is always worth the efforts when we know your stay has been so enjoyable for you, so thank you!

This is positively the best place to stay in Blacksburg. One block from VATech campus, walking distance to shops and restaurants and the just the most inviting rooms, garden, patio and pool in the area. My daughter attends VT but always stays with me at the Clay Corner Inn when I am in town because the beds are so comfy, the bath linens luxurious, and the breakfasts include healthy and hearty choices. Cannot wait to return!
I remember very well your stay with your daughter and am very pleased we could make it so special for you. I as a mother also know how difficult it is to have our young adults at college on special occasions and to know we could offer you this time together has made us very happy. See you again soon!

I found this Inn while looking for place to stay in Blacksburg besides a hotel. It was amazing. Owners are very welcoming, breakfast was delicious! We enjoyed breakfast outside and relaxed by the pool at the end of the day. Came to town for college orientation, staying here made it more relaxing and less stressful. Will be back again. Truly home away from home. Well above what I expected. Cheryl
Dear Cheryl, It was a pleasure having you here, especially how you enjoyed yourself and took advantage of our inner gardens & pool area. Until you actually stay you don't realize we have this great area in the back! We had fun getting to know you and your Son and look forward to having you in our home any time you are back in Blacksburg :-) Thank you for your review!

I read other reviews and looked a the rooms on the website. And none of that prepared me for the wonderful experience I had at the Clay Corner Inn. When I go back to Blacksburg, I will certainly stay at the Clay Corner Inn again. Nicky and Rick are excellent hosts.
We are so pleased we were able to create the surprise factor for you :-) We love it when guests arrive and just love the place. We would very much enjoy having you back with us next time you are in Blacskburg so, come on... what are you waiting for Blacksburg is waiting for you!!!! Thank you for this great review.

My husband and I prefer to stay in a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel when possible. While we have had mostly pleasant experiences, the Clay Corner Inn was by far the nicest we have stayed in! The room we stayed in (Virginia Zen!) was just beautiful and cozy and the bed and sheets were so welcoming at the end of a tiring day. It was immaculate (and I'm very picky about that). One of our favorite memories is sitting on the beautiful peaceful porch in the morning and be treated (actually spoiled!!) with the most delicious breakfast we have had anywhere! It's not your basic eggs, biscuits and gravy, tho they would fix that for you if you requested I'm sure. We were treated to exquisite food that Nicky had learned to prepare during her "adventures" in Barcelona and France. What a treat! The staff was always cordial and we enjoyed nights by the pool and chatting with other visitors from around the country. Clay Corner Inn set the bar so high for other B&B's we feel we will always be comparing other B&B's to Clay Corner Inn. Definitely put this on your "places we must go" list!!
Wow! No words are good enough to say how much we appreciate you taking time to write this awesome review... We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we were able to be classified, in your words: "the nicest we have stayed in!". We hope to be able to do the same the next time you are here. Thank You!
