Hotel Floyd & The Town of Floyd


About Hotel Floyd

Hotel Floyd was built by Jack Wall and Kamala Bauers who bought the land in 2002 with the idea of bringing "green" lodging into downtown Floyd. Wall and Bauers are committed to the intentional growth of the beautiful town of Floyd and to introducing responsible tourism to the area. The couple has also donated a piece of land to the town to be used as a pedestrian walkway for the area near the Jacksonville Cemetery, a very interesting place visitors will want to see. This walkway also leads to the center of town. It is commonly used by our guests to travel to nearby restaurants, shops, and the world famous, Floyd Country Store. Every room in the hotel is themed after a  local business in Floyd. Feel free to request the room themed after your favorite Floyd business during your next stay!

Some of the "green" features of the hotel include:
      - A 15 kw grid tied solar array installed on the roof of the main building
      - 4 kw solar our Pet Friendly Units
      - Energy efficient insulation features throughout the hotel
      - Motion sensor lighting and faucets in public bathrooms
      - Energy efficient heating and cooling systems
      - Low flow shower heads (1 GPM) and toilets

Hotel Floyd also contains two conference rooms that are excellent locations for corporate and family events. For larger gatherings, our sister company, The Floyd Eco Village, has a state of the art event center servicing the Town of Floyd and surrounding areas. The Eco Village is also a growing intentional community committed to environmental sustainability.  If you have time, stop by the Floyd Eco Village Farm Store and pick up some delicious organic vegetables grown on site. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email the hotel. Thanks for inquiring about Hotel Floyd.

About the Town of Floyd

Floyd is situated on what is known as the Blue Ridge Plateau, a 50 mile wide section of the Appalachian Mountains that stretches from our eastern county-line, west to Mt. Rogers. The steep rise, known as the Blue Ridge Front, was originally the escarpment that rose to a relatively flat plateau. The undulating, rolling nature of the land nowadays was formed over millennia by the many rivers and creeks throughout.

Besides the natural beauty of the land, you'll also find Floyd is a great place to experience the ‘slower pace' of small-town life. Residents are friendly and readily offer directions or just good conversation. As a stop along the Crooked Road, we take great pride in our local musicians and their homegrown music. You'll find them playing at many venues around the community and right on the sidewalks on weekends.

We're also proud of our talented artisans and crafters, whose beautiful wares can be seen in our many fine galleries, weekend community markets, and yearly studio tours. And speaking of markets, make time to visit with our local farmers (May - October) at the Pavilion Market. You'll find an amazing variety of exceptional quality products and produce.
