Question Recommendations for hotels near VIR - June 24, 2014, 11:46 AM

I realize onsite would be ideal, but I'm looking for some options for lodging near VIR. It seems as though Danville is the closest area with any sort of concentration of hotels.

Does anyone have any recommendations to either stay or stay away from any of the hotels nearby?

There are a few houses/rooms that come up in the Airbnb app, that might be an option.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Is the Budget Inn any good? Can't believe it's $40/night for a supposedly 3-star place.

Don't know about Budget Inn, but I took Steve's suggestion and stayed at Sleep Inn last September, and was glad I did. It was reasonable priced and the rooms were nice. Breakfast was pretty bangin, too...

They don't want you to use their ice machines to fill up your cooler though! WTF! (kidding... I can totally see why they don't want that)

Used to stay at the Innkeeper all the time.
Never again.
Bugs in the beds, crappy A/C, Drive through at McDonalds next door very noisy, 30 min drive to the track.
The Budget Inn isn't much better IMO.

Used to stay at InnKeeper (also fondly known as the CryptKeeper). Never again for all the reasons Steve mentioned.

Now we either stay above garages, at the Lodge or at the Sleep Inn. It's super close, next door to a Food Lion for any/all food related needs and also a few doors down from the AlmostWorldFamous Isabellas Italian restaurant. The food there will put you into a coma as is nurses you through recovery.........

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

Hahaha CryptKeeper!

Well, I booked Sleep Inn. It came out to $200 for two nights, with tax included. On-site would have been $75 more, and when I'm not riding on the track, I like to explore around a bit in the local town. It works out!

Thanks for all the suggestions. Glad I didn't book the room at Budget!!
