Do you have a smoker in your family or travel group. Getting tired of feeling like a second class citizen by being given smoking rooms that aren.t very well maintained and smell. YOU WON'T FIND THAT HERE!!!! Very nice, well maintained, clean smelling and clean room. The bed was comfortable and had both firm and soft pillows. The property has... More

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

Had to stay here for a couple of days while attending a conference. Staff were friendly and accomodating, and very helpful in giving directions and recommending places of interest.. Rooms were decent and clean very well. Overall, I have no complaints, however, I would recommend that they implement a shuttle service to the area malls located up and down Emmet... More

We decided to take our three daughters on a last minute trip to Charlottesville, VA to visit Monticello and UVA. The hotel staff was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. There was nothing special about the room - it was a typical hotel room. Nothing great and not terrible. I did like the location as it was close... More

We stayed here with friends, had a total of 4 rooms. The rooms, while not anything fancy or super special, were clean, and that's what matters. The best thing was that there is an excellent patio area with a ton of chairs and lounge chairs, perfect for visiting with friends. The kids were able to swim, and it was right... More
