Surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, this Sheraton is also situated minutes away from the Roanoke Regional Airport. A free shuttle is also available to take guests to and from the airport. After a day of checking out the town, families can head back to the hotel and take a dip in the indoor heated pool or the outdoor pool. So the kids can swim and play no matter the weather. The spacious guestrooms and suites feature king or queen beds, a flat screen television and complimentary Wi-Fi access so there is never a concern about staying connected to work, home or school. Additionally, the large suites feature a separate living and dining area and a sleeper sofa. There are three onsite restaurants for families to choose from, which serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dogs are also welcome at this pet friendly hotel and will receive a dog bed and bowl upon arrival. Free parking is available.

We got what we thought was a great deal here, but quickly found out why it was so cheap. It has a 3.5 star rating on Hotwire due to the fact that when it was first built I'm sure it was very nice. But I don't think anything has been updated since the mid 90's (that includes the parking lot, carpets, and decor.) There is a spacious restaurant that is only open for the "complimentary continental breakfast" which included waffles and... nothing else. Not even fresh fruit or toast. The hallways smelled horrible - a mixture of cigarettes and dog. The sheets were a very low thread count and itchy, and the bed was an extremely hard spring mattress. Despite the Do Not Disturb sign we left on the door all day, someone came in and "straightened up." Lastly we noticed the pool had a layer of scum on it from poorly balanced chemicals. Do not fall for the high rating and cheap price. Not a good stay.

We stayed for 2 nights. The location was fine and there was plenty of parking. The room seemed clean but the air conditioner was very noisy. I did not have any breakfast. The gym looked nice but the pool is unusable...even my 9-year-old was unable to tolerate the icy water. He was so upset that he couldn't swim. Staff was very friendly and available. For the price, this is a decent stay.
