I just wanted to say thank you to you and your staff for putting on a great event for us on Saturday. Everyone had a great time. We got especially good reviews on the food—it was awesome! My boss, the Operations Director said it was the best food she’s ever had at a banquet. Thanks again—the Crystal Ballroom worked well and we have plenty of room to grow into it so I am sure we will be calling again for next year! I will also pass along your contact info to other departments here as well for their future banquet needs.

Good morning Lana,
On behalf of the eLink Youth Program, I want to thank you for all you and the Village Inn have done for us in the past couple of months. As I told you Friday night, I overheard many of the youth express their amazement at the beauty of the banquet hall. Many of the youth have never taken part in anything like this before and we find joy in their new experiences. Because of your generous heart and willingness to help us stay within budget, the youth had an amazing night. The food was amazing, (I loved the potatoes), and the deserts were a big hit. The staff accommodated our needs and were always quick with refills of our glasses and food trays. Your bus service and driver helped us so much at the end of the evening. One of the biggest challenges for our youth is transportation and we are grateful to him for getting us home safely. Finally, I would like to thank you. You have been a pleasure to work with these past couple months, making my job easier. I have enjoyed our conversations and your willingness to help our group, hopefully we can work together again one day.
I hope you have Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
~S. Bowen and the eLink Youth Program (Dec 22, 2014)
I just wanted to take a moment and tell you thank you so much for allowing me to Host Hit the Lights on Breast Cancer at the Village Inn. Everyone had a blast, and absolutely loved the venue. I also wanted to take a moment and let you know that your staff is bar to none. THEY ARE AMAZING, friendly and oh so eager to help, and that meant the world to the stressed out self I was! The survey results were unanimous and everyone wants to have the 3rd annual at Village Inn as well as the masquerade ball! Once again, I thank you and the Village Inn so much for all the support for this year’s event!
~ W. Sellers (Oct. 21, 2014)
Thanks, once again, for all your support for the Pink Ribbon talks. We couldn’t do it without you! You have helped make this a special day for many.
~Our Best, the PRT Committee (10/4/14)
I want to thank you and your staff for providing such wonderful accommodations while I was a travel nurse at Forsyth Regional Hospital! Your hotel is lovely and the staff is first rate! Thank you again for providing such a great place to rest my head this summer.

Lana, Just a note to say Thank you once again for your assistance in the planning of Davie Class of 78 reunion. You were so kind to make suggestions and answer all our questions. The event was a hit! We even heard comments “best ever!” Food was good and Bartender was great.
~L. Homiak (9/13/14)
We just wanted to thank you for all your help with our event on August 31st. Everything was very nice and in order. You and your staff were very nice and very helpful. Lili, the Banquet Manager, was very accommodating Saturday night in the Pub and Sunday at the event. She actually saved is with her speakers because nobody’s laptop would play our movie. We had no speakers. Audrey was also very helpful! We loved the suite and we really appreciate everything. We hope to secure your venue for a later event. Oh Yeah, the food was GREAT! If you can I would love to have the pimento cheese recipe and the mushroom recipe.

Happy New Year !!
I wanted to take a moment to say what a great time I had at the Village Inn Event Center NYE Celebration Party. The venue was perfect, the guest crowd was delightful to be among. The elegance of the ballroom setup, the display & assortment of food items, the bar service, the 2 live bands and the DJ…. all were superb !! Kudos to Lana Schlotfeldt and the staff (Delacie & Kim to name a few) for all of their hard work and preparation to make the evening a complete success!
I am sure that there were many long hour days without pay, use of their own personal time to plan, set up, and deliver the perfect evening for your guests to enjoy. I can assure you, the smiles were plentiful and continuous throughout the night. Second to the party itself, was surprising my love (Amy) with the opulence and comfort of an overnight in Room 200. I have to Thank Lana, once again for her role in making the possibility become the reality. When it comes to Customer Care, Event Planning, and giving 150% of herself; you have a real gem with Lana.
While I cannot speak for all of your guests, I can tell that you that Amy & I had a very memorable New Year’s Eve, and are most appreciative of everyone’s efforts that went into making it a night to long remember! Best Wishes for a Happy & Prosperous 2014,
~ Frank & Amy (1/2/2014)
Dr. Coble and I wanted to thank you for a wonderful day yesterday. Everything was beautifully handled, the food was perfect (best ever) and the superintendents were pleased. It was brilliant of you to move us to the North room to avoid all the noise/confusion of the setup for your evening event. The lunch setup was also beautifully done, and everyone enjoyed the meal. Please share with your staff that everything went very smoothly and we are most grateful for everyone’s help in making this important session go so smoothly. I am also grateful for the afternoon snack you were able to provide at the last minute. I apologize for not making arrangements for that sooner, but I had no idea that we would need one. It worked out perfectly and made a great end to the day.

Our company has held an annual four day training event at the Village Inn Event Center for several years. Things are so great, it is now a semi-annual event. The Event Center and staff are wonderful. The staff couldn't be more help. If you asked for it, they'll make it happen; management, front desk clerks, chefs, housekeeping, etc. Lodging rooms have been renovated to please the upscale traveler. The pillows and bedding are to die for! The Event Center is just off of the interstate and within walking distance to a major chain store, restaurants, etc; however, it remains quite. These people are GREAT!

Thanks again for all your help in making Liddy’s wedding reception and our stay at the Village Inn Event Center memorable/delicious/enjoyable. We head nothing but compliments on the food & accommodations. We can’t thank you enough for letting us come in on Friday and clean up on Sunday! The crew had consolidated all our decorations in one place and made it so easy for us to pack up. We look forward to our next event with you! I would like to have a copy of the itemized bill---just another souvenir! And I might show it to Kirby since we did not kill our budget,
~ T. Matthews (Jan 2013)
You are simply awesome!
~ S. Johnson (Jan 3, 2013)
Lana, First I wanted to thank you and your staff for all the hard work at our daughter’s wedding reception (December 22, 2012). Everyone has bragged on the food and it was truly delicious. Out of town guests were please with their rooms. Friends have asked if we would use your facility again and we have given them a definite yes. Thank you so much.
~ L. Hicks
"My experience here...wow where do I begin!! The staff was absolutely wonderful!! From the beginning to the end, everything went smooth. The Crystal Ballroom was just right for our reception, and I am still getting compliments from my guest about how beautiful the room is, and the convenience of having both the ceremony and reception in one location. The food was delicious, and I am trying to find an excuse to hold another event there...lol! The hotel rooms where just right for all of the wedding party to get dressed and my husband and I absolutely loved the suite that we stayed in. My wedding day was so much more than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to Beth and all the staff at the Village Inn Event Center!!"

"Cancer Services, Inc. has used the Village Inn Event Center... for over 10 years to host our annual Breast Cancer Survivor Conference. The service is great, especially in helping us exceed our client's expectations on a limited budget. Lana always goes above and beyond to make our event special and the service staff help maintain the professional feel of our event. Feedback from participants is always exceptional for all aspects, including food and location. We've never considered any other venue because of the amazing treatment we get at the Village Inn Event Center. Thank you so much for being a great partner to Cancer Services!

"...the golf coordinator did a great job … and the other hotel employees were, as always, helpful and courteous, as well as enthusiastic. I heard no complaints about the renovations to the hotel. As for next year … (we will get our) plans in early."
~ David Eversdyke
"...we did truly enjoy our stay at the Village Inn Event Center. Even if we do not have an opportunity to visit next year, I will be sure to tell all my friends about your property and encourage them to stay there whenever in Winston-Salem. Thanks again for your hospitality!"
David Horton, Jr.
"Thank you very much for a great time at your facility last week. The rooms were great and the golf was excellent. The whole group was very impressed with the (entire) trip. We will be returning next year and will be recommending your property to everyone."
"The rooms were really nice and the beds (were) really comfortable. There was a lot to see. We especially enjoyed Old Salem."
~ Bob, Pat, Wanda and Howie
"For the past 15 years or more we have had the pleasure to have been associated with the Village Inn Event Center in Clemmons. We hold a celebrity golf tournament each year benefiting The Brenner Children's Hospital and the Village Inn Event Center has been our headquarters for all of our out of town celebrities. Year in and year out the consistency and hospitality of the management, sales group and staff has made the Village Inn Event Center a home away from home for our celebrities. And with that, we have already booked our block of rooms for next year’s silver anniversary tournament."
~ Ed Bradley, Chairman of Brenner Children’s Hospital Golf Classic
"A sincere 'thank you' to all of the staff at the Village Inn Event Center.
Our company has held annual 3-day sales training sessions with our employees for many years. The past few years we have held the sessions at the Village Inn Event Center. This event has become so successful that it is now a semi-annual event.
The success of this event is due in part to the staff and the facility of the Village Inn Event Center.
I am always amazed in the way the staff meets every request. You definitely strive to please the customer.
I've said many times, 'You make me (the event coordinator) look good!'
We can hardly wait to use the newly, remodeled rooms."
~ Robin Thomas, Leonard Buildings
"I'd like to thank you and your staff for everything. We really enjoyed our wedding! I thank you for being my driver in the little golf cart, and everything else that was done. The food was wonderful! We’ve received rave reviews about the food and of course, the wedding! I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate everything!"
~ Mr. & Mrs. McKay, Wedding and Reception
