Overall, disappointing. Heat did not work in first room & maintenance couldn't fix it...so they wanted us to "wait a few hours to see if it starts working." After changing rooms, the second room had minimal heat. Elevators smelled AWFUL (musty...could barely breathe inside them). One front desk staff rude, other could not have been nicer & more accommodating. Rooms... More

We stayed at the Cavalier Inn to attend a concert at the John Paul Jones arena. The room was clean and adequate a little tight, but it served its purpose. The location was great, walking distance to the arena with several amenities near by. The front desk seemed like it needed about 3 more staff people to make it run... More

UVA has bought this hotel and tried to upgrade it with a renovation. The renovation is ok, but the service is horrible. A loud bus idling outside the front entrance woke us all up at 5:45. A call to the front desk got no action. I had to get dressed and find the bus driver to tell him to turn... More

Booked this hotel because of the proximity to the John Paul Jones Arena. Traveled with my daughter to attend the Muse concert on October 27. This hotel was perfect for us. I had booked the king room suite through Orbitz (great price for a suite) with original intent that husband and son would also be traveling with us. Although they... More

If you are looking for a good value place to stay which has clean rooms, excellent buffet breakfast, friendly staff, and a convenient location to UVA and downtown Charlottesville, I recommend the Cavalier Inn. The staff was friendly, housekeeping was very good, and we did not have any problems during our four-day stay here. I would definitely stay here again.... More

The price is a little bit expensive. It's near the traffic and quite noisy at night.

Pluses: Convenient location. Beds,pillows clean,comfortable, bathroom area clean. Front desk staff friendly & responsive. Breakfast okay- decent variety, fresh fruit, & generous hours. Minuses: Physical upkeep is in dire need of attention! Cleanliness & vigilant upkeep of structure should be #1. Funky smell was evident at entrance & throughout. Drapes swung into doorway into room when opening door; one end... More

I will admit the hotel is under some renovation, but it was dingy and very basic. I expected more from a hotel associated with the University. It was billed as having a refrigerator, but my room did not and although I requested one it never showed up in the 2 days I was there. The other room my family stayed... More

We chose this hotel based on the AAA recommendation that is posted through a travel site, and so were expecting much more than we actually received. The building itself is rather run down in appearance, and this carried through to the inside. The elevator doors sounded like the entrance to a tomb, between their creeking and squeeling. At one point... More

The main thing recommending this hotel is it's proximity to UVA's campus. Hotel is older, has an outdoor pool, and is quite convenient to walking to UVA's campus, which is across the street, literally. AC worked fine but was loud and bothered my wife. Room was adequate, but fixtures/mechanics seemed a little dated. One of the building's two elevators was... More
