Holiday Inn Valley View Roanoke

This modern hotel is located about 5 miles from the heart of downtown Roanoke. It is located quite close to the airport and with easy access to 581/220 you can be just about anywhere you want in just a few minutes.

This 5 story hotel has a beautiful lobby with a fireplace and couches for relaxing. The restaurant is also located in the lobby and serves breakfast and dinner. You can grab a complimentary cup of coffee while you check in.

All of the rooms in the hotel are on the right side. The left side has the meeting and conference rooms. Our room was a king room and was exceptionally large. You enter into a foyer which has two large windows that overlook the lobby, restaurant and pool area. You then walk down a hall with the bathroom on the right. The closet is open and includes a luggage holder an iron and an ironing board as well as additional bedding.

The room has a coffee pot on a cupboard that holds the mini fridge. The cupboard above has the microwave. A desk with a very comfortable chair offer the perfect place to work and free WiFi is available. The TV sits on a dresser that faces the bed. I did say the room was large didn’t I? It also includes a sofa and a coffee table, two nights stands and a king size bed. The room has plenty of plugs including at the desk and on the nightstand lamps.

Three lamps and a pole lamp provide plenty of light and the hall and the foyer have overhead lighting. The bathroom has a large granite vanity and a shower/tub combination. An abundance of hot water and good pressure make taking a shower enjoyable. The towels while not plush are generous and absorbent.

The bed has a firm mattress that gave us a very good night’s sleep. I would prefer to have real down or feather pillows but the ones provided are both firm and soft. They have bands around them when you first come into your room to tell you which is which.

The area where the hotel is located has several other hotels and some stores. Within just a short drive of a mile or two there is the Valley Mall which not only has a great selection of stores but also plenty of restaurant options.

A gym, an indoor/outdoor pool and a hot tub are also available. The hotel partners with Gold’s Gym if you need more than what the gym here offers. Plenty of free parking is also provided.

This is a very nice hotel in a convenient location within just a few miles of I-81. It is extremely easy to get on and off the connector road and also into downtown. It was clean and in good repair and has everything that business and family travelers could want. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel or to stay here again myself.
