Great place to stay in Blacksburg

Nice hosts, nice property where you don't feel like you're intruding, super convenient to the VT campus and downtown.

Love Clay Corner Inn!!

My husband and I have recently stayed at the Clay Corner Inn on 2 different occasions and it was fabulous! I can't say enough about the ambiance, wonderful hosts Nicky & Rick, and their staff. The rooms were exceptionally clean, cozy and inviting, the shared kitchen, living room and computer access was terrific. The "comphy" sheets on the bed were so delightful, we ordered some! You don't know wonderful sheets until you sleep on the "comphy" sheets. The breakfast options were delicious, and the homemade cookies and muffins were outstanding. Relaxing, reading a book by pool and eating/drinking outside on covered patio and the convenience of walking into town to look around was terrific. We will be back and we recommend you stay at the Clay Corner Inn!

Wonderful weekend!

My husband and I provided free EKG screenings at McComas Hall on January 24, 2015 for VT and High School students in Blacksburg. ( We wanted to stay closer to campus for our convenience. Our stay was better than we could have ever imagined as Nicky, the owner of the Inn, could not have been more gracious. We intend on returning soon if we are lucky enough to get a reservation!

Charming place very near Virginia Tech

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.

Quick Mother Daughter get-away

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!
