According to Mapquest, on an average day The Oaks Victorian Inn is only 11 minutes drive from Virginia Tech’s Lane Stadium, but game day is no average day around here. Hokie fans are very serious when it comes to football. The first home game of the season is against Ohio State and all of our rooms have been booked for that game since February when the 2015 schedule came out. On game weekends fans make the pilgrimage along I-81 with their cars all decked out with Virginia Tech decals and Hokie flags flying. I think that’s the only time cars outnumber trucks on the road. It’s orange and maroon for as far as the eye can see.
We always look forward to hosting fans and alumni on those very special days.The morning of game day we serve an early breakfast for those who need to head out to their tailgate parties. Some guests even skip breakfast leaving as early as 6:30am to get a prime spot. At breakfast the morning after, we play a Hokie game of our own. Photos of the painted Hokie bird statues that you see all over Blacksburg are folded, placed in a bowl, and whoever picks the bird of the day wins a prize.
If you are looking for lodging for any game but Ohio State, we still have at least one room available. Just check our reservation system and what you see is what we have. Football weekends are always a 2 night minimum, but while you are here we’ll try our best to pamper and spoil you for those 2 nights. Hope to see you soon and….
