Okay, this is the fifth or sixth time I have stayed in this hotel. My experience has not been great from the first one so this stay should not have shocked me. When we walked into the room the temperature was 99.9 so I called the front desk, their solution to the problem was to cut the thermostat in the... More

The actual building and room were fine. The staff was friendly and as helpful as they could be. But....the building is heated and cooled with a boiler system. In essence you are at the mercy of whatever the boiler is set at.... Our room was humid and had no air flow, and it was made worse when we all got... More

Hello Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our hotel, I apologize about the noise, we have asked our neighbors to have their trash dumpster emptied at a more reasonable hour, we have ours done at mid day and certainly not in the morning hours, thank you for letting us know we will approach them again.

It's right on campus, within walking distance of John Paul Jones Arena. That's a big plus. The room is decent, although the sink console in my room was made for someone about 4'6- Perfect height for children. I heard several people complaining to the front desk of noise as I was passing through the lobby, but my 5th floor room... More

When we arrived, after bouts of laughter, due to the sight of the classic motel exterior, we were pleasantly surprised by the interior of the lobby. Although the receptionists were less than professional (friendly, but rather rough), our check-in was easy, as was parking. Getting to the room wasn't a lot of fun, given the narrow elevators and the old,... More

I stayed there on a college visit with my daughter. Wish I had researched a little better. It was a great location, charming ( kind of ) lobby, convient parking, friendly helpful staff and fair/easy breakfast BUT the room...YUK! The beds crunched like the mattress pad was old plastic. The pillows were hard and lumpy and the sheets were thin.... More

In town for a wedding on campus at the chapel. Staff very friendly, property dated, rooms small but clean. No question a great value for the location. We were able to walk into town and take the shuttle back. Hotel was crowded for a football weekend but staff was always pleasant, friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hurry back.

There weren't a lot of options right by the college. I got there before check in time so knew I would have to wait. No problem. But the first person behind the desk was rude. Basically she told me in no uncertain terms that I would have to wait until at least 3:30pm. When a second lady came on duty,... More

We stayed with our two children as part of our driving tour around Virginia last July. We got a fantastic price for our stay, and although the decor was a little dated and a bit shabby in places, everything worked OK, breakfast was fine, and the location is brilliant.

My friend got what she thought was a great deal for a hotel right by the hospital at UVA. Not so much. The room was small, the beds were hard. The hair dryer was broken. There was a full size ironing board but trying to find a place to set it up and plug in the iron was difficult. When... More
