The Cavalier Inn offers an excellent location at a great value and with exceptional customer service. My family has stayed at the Cavalier Inn several times over the past year and are very impressed with the staff and facilities. The hot breakfast is delicious and there isn't a better location for campus and downtown activities. We will be back soon... More

This hotel is in an excellent location for the walk we took to attend a wedding at UVA Chapel and also to many restaurants and shops. The price was very reasonable for a one-night stay. The staff was friendly and helpful.

As a quick scan of reviews here will show, traveler experiences at the Cavalier Inn are highly inconsistent. The property should easily be a consistent three-star experience. But it hasn't had the investment it needs and blame for that goes squarely to the University of Virginia, whose trust owns and manages the hotel. Guess that UVa figures alumni will stay... More

We have been coming to the Cavalier Inn for years and have always had a good, comfortable stay. It's very convenient to UVA and the "Corner" where there are several reasonably priced restaurants offering good fare. WiFi is excellent and rooms include a fridge and microwave. Breakfasts include all the essentials and the coffee has improved this year. The staff... More

We chose this hotel because of convenience and apparent facilities. It is certainly very convenient for the University and is close top transport links to downtown Charlottesville. The staff were pleasant and that's where the good points end. The floor and furnishings in the bedroom were not clean and the bedding insufficient for a double bed. The breakfast which was... More

Great location within the UVA community. Plenty of restaurants and Stores nearby. Staff was pleasant, room was not the best. The floor looked like no one ran the vacuum. Parking gets full at night. Had to park underground - which was an old basement, with one way in and one way out. Overall, it served its purpose for an overnight... More

Nice people, good vibe. Our room on the 3rd floor was perfect. The room was quiet and dark and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was great too. For dinner, we walked up the street and had fantastic Afghan food. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

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.

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
