The Cavalier Inn is in a great location. You are close to all the action at UVA and the town of Charlottesville. The Cavalier Inn is more like a motel, it is not fancy, but that said the rooms were very clean and comfortable. There are great pictures in the lobby of events and people at UVA. The staff were...

My husband was having tests and surgery done at the U of VA. It was convenient to to the hospital and to shopping/food. The Villa next door had great service and food. My only complaint was they didn't leave us enough coffee for the little coffee maker in the room; but the front desk was very helpful. The weather was... More

Scary experience in every way, shape and form. If you like feeling like you're sleeping in a college party dorm, great. People were talking in the halls until 2am. Loud doors opening and closing constantly. The sheets feel like plastic (easy to clean after big parties?! The looked like they had been washed in boiling water a million times already).... More

I've stayed here a few times now. It's an adequate, well-located hotel but nothing special. On this visit I had to change rooms because of maintenance issues (a broken refrigerator constantly clicking), but the front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. My second room was fine with no major cleanliness or maintenance problems. However, for some reason the hotel... More

Location, Location, Location says it all. It is in the heart of UVA territory. We were able to walk to the John Paul Jones concert hall and also walk to other stores and restaurants. There is a nice Diner in front of the hotel also which was nice. We felt very safe in that area. Our room was clean and... More

We had a late afternoon Doctors apt. and just didn't want to do a 3hour drive back at night. So we made reservations the night before using our "hotels.com" points. ($48.00) One must understand that these are OLD HOTELS renovations can only do so much, and of course this is a University town. Our room was clean and quite, the... More

Lobby pretty. People working there were very nice and extremely helpful. Very convenient. Unfortunately, rooms were gross... Found ticket stubs dated 2 months prior under bed (along with piles of other garbage and dust). Mold on walls. Heat system totally messed up-no fresh air and the vent in the bathroom where air came out was so dust clogged that it... More

The room was ok but was overpriced at a final bill of $109.00. When we went to bed, the heat was set at 68 which seemed fine. In the morning, when I got up, it felt cold so I checked the heat and it said 59. I tried to adjust the heat but it would not go above 62 and... More

This hotel is an older building but has been renovated very nicely with updated decorations. It's not one of the nicest hotels I've stayed in but for the money it's worth it! It is located within walking distance of the john Paul arena. The staff are very friendly and helpful, I would stay here again!
