Wonderful staff, rooms very neat and clean....when I needed something, they got it for me right away, my wife and I would sure go back here and right across street from UVA. We walked the campus and also visited 2 wineries

Motel was what one would expect, simple, rooms clean and neat, staff friendly, a bit noisy as its on the corner of two busy roads, but very convenient to UVA. HOWEVER, I was stunned to learn that a $14.99 surcharge on my credit card bill which I thought was fraud, was a result of booking the Cavalier Inn online. I... More

Hello Jenn in Moscow, I am sorry you had a bad experience with booking online, as with most outside 3rd party online booking engines we do not have control over what they charge to book through them, Our direct website has no booking fees, as far as a AAA discount, as with most hotels that are branded or not we...

Bathroom is outdated - 50's. A/C and thermostat did not work properly. Room décor did not make up for deficiencies. Commitments were not completed. Worst experience I've had in years. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Hello It is unfortunate that you were unhappy with your stay, some guest do find the thermostats confusing to work but I assure you they do work, The bedding in the rooms along with all of the furniture is brand new less than 6 months old, our bathrooms are our next project, but they were updated a few years ago,...

I've driven past this hotel quite a few times and never gave it much thought. It's on a busy intersection right by UVA. Not very attractive looking on the outside. Back in June, my daughter and I had an appointment at UVA and decided on a whim to make it an overnight trip. We ended up walking into this hotel... More

In town for a concert at the John Paul Jones. This hotel was easy to find close to venue as well as VT and historical landmarks. Rooms were clean, well furnished. Continental breakfast included which was good. I would stay again.

The hotel is in the center of town near the university. They have free parking and free WiFi. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. They give you fresh, hot, popcorn when you arrive.

I haven't thought about it being from the University it could have a lot of students. And students are usually very noisy. Specially if they're sports team players. So beware about that if you need a quiet place to sleep. On the other hand it's on a great location and have a nice room with a great view of the... More
