My friends and I were looking for an inexpensive hotel near Charlottesville. It was my friends bachelor party and we liked the location near the corner. The hotel was under renovation and prices were cut. The room I was in had holes in the bathroom walls and it was not due to the renovation. There is athletic field right next... More

Is adjacent to a UVA practice field and very busy major traffic congested rood. Small hotel of 3 floors is not exactly quiet. My room was immediately off the hallway entrance having a bathroom window with a torn paper cover which anyone who wanted to could peep through to if they so desired. I covered it up with one of...

The Lady and I spent the weekend in Charlottesville after exploring Crabtree Falls in Nelson County and strolling along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We couldn't have asked for a better place to crash for such an affordable rate and friendly service! The room was spotless and had a nice location just by the Univ. of Virginia!

Good location right across from University of Virginia. Room was dark & very dated. Furniture very scarred & scuffed. The bathroom had no rack or hooks to even hang the towels, etc. Towel bars badly needed. Bed was comfortable. Our room was located next to the UVA intra-mural soccer field. The large, bright field lights shone around the window curtains... More

If you are looking for an acceptable, inexpensive motel close to the UVA campus, this is the place for you. It is steps away from UVA. The room was small and very dark. It is supposed to be updated but I think all they did was add a new layer of dark paint and new flooring. The furniture was pretty... More

The room we had was basic. The owner’s have done a lot of work to bring this motel up-to-date. For that, we applaud them. They would do well to put towel bars in the bathroom…there was no place to hang our towels for reuse.

Very good bedroom which was larger than the normal one offered on rest of my tour across the east USA . The bedroom was quite narrow e.g. couldn’t walk down room if door open. I slept well as offset from the road but there was chaos at 6.45 possibly because of delivery but no one slept through it. Adequate breakfast.

Great stay at this hotel. It was an Excellent value. They have done an impressive job renovating. New bathroom, new carpet, comfortable mattresses, modern look. And they are convenient to UVA and the Historic Downtown. Breakfast did include eggs in addition to waffle maker, cereal, bagels, pastries, yogurt, fruit, juices, coffee, etc. They had a business center but I did... More

One of the most affordable hotels in the area where many are $150+ per night. Not far from a large selection of restaurants and the UVA campus. We were in room 24 and it was very quiet even though hotel is near the road. Beds were comfortable and water pressure good.
