The Clay Corner Inn is a wonderful find in Blacksburg. I was looking for a place to take the whole family (Grandparents and Dog) to visit our daughter at Tech and enjoy a nice family weekend ... I found it. Over the weekend we enjoyed walking Huckleberry Trail, playing board games at the kitchen table, and just visiting while sitting...

One night at the Clay Corner Inn is all you need to see why they were voted the best B&B in Blacksburg.

Looked for comfortable, found FABULOUS!!! Immaculately clean, conveniently located and lovingly cared for, the Clay Corner Inn is a great getaway. The owners and innkeepers, Rick and Nicky, made us totally at home. They even called us in advance to let us know alternate routes as roads were blocked due to holiday celebrations on Main Street. Breakfast was amazing with...

This is an excellent place to stay in the best tradition of B&Bs where you almost become part of the family. This was a business trip so I cannot comment on the price of the rooms which I do not know. It is located next to the Virginia Tech Campus. The room has no microwave, coffee machine etc. but you...

We stayed at the Clay Corner Inn while visiting our son at Virginia Tech. The accommodations were first rate, the bed was very comfortable and our hosts were warm and charming. The breakfast was fabulous both days we were there. It is easy walking distance to town and campus. We would love to come back again sometime!

Enjoyed a one-night stay at Clay Corner Inn with friends on our way to NC. Nicky & Rick (and pups Callie & Mokie) couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.

We only stay one nite but it was very pleasant and cozy. Location is great and it was well worth the money. The room is large and roomy, it was nice to have a private bathroom in the room. We plan on staying here again in the future.

Nicky and Rick are great! I planned a romantic getaway for my boyfriend's birthday and I couldnt have made a better choice! The room was wonderful, clean, comfortable, and most of all romantic. The overall staff was helpful, friendly, and attended to all our needs. Nicky helped with all the details for the evening from the beginning to the end....
