If one is looking to stay "on grounds" and wants the more personal experience when lodging then the Cavalier Inn is your place to stay. The staff is helpful and friendly and management will go out of their way to accommodate guests. The rooms are clean albeit a bit dated but breakfast in the AM and the proximity to "The... More

I booked this hotel for my parents who were visiting the area for an appointment at UVA's Cancer Center. I was unable to travel with them. This not being a leisure visit and under obvious stressful circumstances, the staff was absolutely amazing. They assisted my parents who are elderly and are also from a very small area, not familiar with... More

Updated and very clean. The room looked great and were very comfortable - the bathroom could however use a little TLC. The staff was very friendly. What really surprised me was the included breakfast - lots of choices from muffins, bagels, eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh waffles, cereals etc. Would I stay here again - YES

Hotel has been updated as much as possible but still an old motel. Rooms are very small. Alot of outside noise because doors open to outside balcony. Next to campus. If have more than 2 in room will be crowded.

Spent three nights here, as a base for visiting the Waltons mountain museum, the hotel is very nice and all staff i met were friendly and helpful. My room overlooked the university playing fields where i was able to watch parade and band rehearsals. My room was clean and comfortable, with housekeeping service always on hand with fresh towels etc.... More

Its a nice hotel, with a well renovated lobby. The rooms are okay, beds are comfortable and the room and bathrooms are clean. The bathroom tile and sink needs updating. If your not picky you'll be fine. Breakfast was good and had a lot to offer. If you usually stay at a Hilton hotel, this might not be the place... More

This place is a great location (walking distance to the campus grounds) and a very reasonable price. Complimentary wifi and breakfast also helps. Service is friendly. The accommodations are good. The only problem I had was the shower: sometimes it took a while for the water to get warm and the temperature can fluctuate between cold and hot even after... More

We stayed here because of the convenience to the campus. The Cavalier Inn is older, so the rooms are smaller and it is definitely showing some wear, but we were glad to be so close. The bed was pretty comfortable, breakfast was good, service was friendly, and the price was reasonable, so I really can't complain! The historic photos in... More

I had a great night stay here! We were in town for a concert at John Paul jones arena. We had a quick easy checkin. Unloaded car and walked down the street for dinner. We later walked to arena for concert. It was great to leave car and walk everywhere. We had a good night sleep on comfortable beds in... More

I called to make a group reservation on a Saturday, the sales manager was not in so the reservation department booked us 11 rooms and gave a rate of $120 per night and sent me the confirmation on all 11 rooms and took my credit card and advised they would charge it prior to arrival on 9/11/15. On Monday the... More
