We stayed here recently to attend the UVA/Miami football game. In no particular order my observations are as follows: 1. The location is fair. It is a short drive to the University, but it is too far for a pleasant walk. Traffic on Route 29 is horrendous, especially on a Saturday afternoon. 2. The Hotel staff was without exception polite...

Mediocre Holiday Inn...does not provide breakfast even though there is a restaurant in the hotel. Should provide a voucher. Were greeted with chocolate chip cookies which after a long trip was welcomed. Except at the desk, the staff seems disconnected from guests. Not welcoming.

We spent two nights at the Holiday Inn Charlottesville for a visit to UVA and to attend a Saturday football game. The rooms are modest but very comfortable, and the staff - from desk to housekeeping - are all very polite and accommodating. We intend to return in the winter for campus visits and basketball games, and again in the... More

I have stayed at this Holiday Inn many times and have always enjoyed my stay.

The price was $114 and came with a refrigerator and microwave. Everything was very clean and the shampoo and soaps were from Bath and Body Works.Very convenient to Monticello and UVA. There is an upscale Indian resteraunt right in front of the parking lot which has the best food I have ever had.

I booked this hotel through Hotwire. The room was around $100 with tax and it was not worth it. The hotel is shabby and out-dated. The bathroom left a lot to be desired. My tv remote didn't work, the air conditioning unit made a terrible noise, and I couldn't get the sliding glass door to close. I could have complained... More
