We moved from Charlottesville to Florida a year and a half ago and came back for a few days to visit. After Cville, we were headed to the Outer Banks with friends for Thanksgiving and we always bring our dogs. Even though we still have friends and family in town, 3 adults and 2 dogs can be a bit much,... More

We had a pleasant night's stay at the Comfort Inn University in Charlottesville. The free breakfast was adequate and our room was quiet and comfortable. The check-in staff were friendly and we appreciate that this hotel allowed our fur child to stay with us. The only negatives were the construction out front with accompanying congested traffic and a few vagrants... More

Our first trip to this fair city on such a weekend! It was obviously very busy and I would've booked elsewhere but hotels were booked! The Comfort Inn was actually very spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable! What else can you ask for under $150/night. Oh, and the staff was quite nice, the breakfast was decent (coffee too) and free popcorn... More

We are on a driving trip across country. We have stayed in several Comfort Inns. We are traveling with our cat, and many of them are pet friendly. So I made a reservation online for this hotel a few days ago, as we planned to be in Charlottesville tonight. There are 4 of us traveling and we needed 3 beds.... More

While our hotel is not located within walking distance of the University of Virginia, it is a short 3-mile drive and we offer pre-printed directions for our guest upon request. Most of our guests find the location... More

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.

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.
