Ila Crawford at the desk was the highlight. Initially we were booked in 620, the room was musky smelling. She changed our room and apologized-twice. I always notice people treat you differently when you book through Priceline, but this was not the case here. The hotel was simple and clean. No frills. Shame there wasn't included breakfast.

The bedroom was clean. The bathroom, though, was small and the sink area was small and close to the shower. There was no air to put in the bathroom after using the shower, so the mirror was unable to see until I dried it. It was good that a room was available the weekend of 4th of July. We watched...

This hotel is in a convenient location. It was very clean. The fresh cookies and lemon water made our arrival after a long trip special. The bartender was fun and fast! But by far, the best part of our stay was a front desk employee, Dumisile Martin! She is a real gem...personable, knowledgeable and hospitable. Check in was a breeze... More

We stayed here two nights. Upon arrival we noticed the clean lobby and grounds. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze. Our room was clean and in good condition. The frig and microwave were an added bonus we did not expect.

I normally stay here for work when I have to overnight in Charlottesville. Let me start off by saying that the hotel is in a good location and that the staff is very helpful and friendly. The nightly cookies and ice water in the lobby are a nice touch and really make the place feel "first class". The rooms could... More

We stayed here for one night after a very long day of travel from London. We arrived exhausted and found the desk to be very friendly and helpful. While unloading our luggage from our car, one of the staff saw us and came all the way across the parking lot to lend a hand getting our bags to our rooms.... More

We booked several rooms at this hotel for UVA graduation. We selected this hotel because it was the only one available in Charlottesville at the time of booking (more than one year in advance), other than the Omni which was double the price. The rooms were extremely overpriced, as are all hotels for UVA graduation. That being said, we had... More

Wedding party discount got the room for $150/night. Any more and it may not have been worth it. Clean comfortable rooms. Good breakfast ($12). A lot of convenience close by. Easy to get out to the attractions.
