These are some of the kindess and caring people I have met.

This is a great place to stay! Employees are caring (especially the manager), convenient to UVA Hospital (hospital rate avail), close to shopping. It is located behind Canes (really good chicken) but quiet because it's off the street. We've stayed there each time we've gone to UVA and they are like family. Rooms have just been remodeled. If you need... More

The room was good, probably due for an update soon. Minor things that did not interfere with our stay included dripping tub, sticky latch and loose wall trim along one wall. Otherwise it was clean, quiet, and well located. Getting across route 29 turning left can be a problem, so plan your trips in and out to make right turns.... More

This is a real secret in Charlottesville! I have stayed here a few times and never any complaints. Highly recommend. Bottles of free water when hot outside. Great parking. Breakfast is enough to get the day started. Lots of pillows. Nice air conditioning this summer.

This motel cost the same as many upmarket motels, but did not meet expectations. They were in the process of renovating, which is a good thing, but the first room we were given had mattresses that made a crinkling sound every time you would turn over. We asked for a different room and the staff obliged. However, in this room... More

Needed a last minute reservation during Memorial Day weekend, stopped in here. Seemed a bit pricey for the place, but everything was in order that we needed. Quiet location off the road. The Holiday Inn next door had better rates but was booked when we tried to locate a room.

Stayed for two nights at the Comfort Inn. Although I think it was rather expensive even with an AARP discount, the rooms are very nice and clean as was the bathroom. Decent breakfast and convenient driving to UVA or the downtown area. The 'gym' was horrible. Bike, elliptical and treadmill. They should do more with that. The pool is small... More

This is a stately hotel with comfortable accomodations. We stopped on a trip home from Florida. The only negative comment I could make about the room was that the lighting was poor. There was a table lamp on the nightstand between the beds, and one floor lamp near the desk. After dark it did not give a lot of light... More
