We had the worst possible stay on a rainy weekend. Unfortunately, I cannot think of anything nice to say about this hotel.
Charlottesville is a beautiful city but if you pick a bad hotel, your stay can be the most unsatisfying. This hotel is located on a busy intersection and it is really difficult to get in and out of the parking lot. Once you are in your room, you can enjoy the ugly views of the same busy street and grocery store across the road. Don't expect views of Shenandoah from this hotel.
The hotel is also very dated. The furniture is falling apart. We had a 1 foot long metal rod sticking out of one of the uncomfortable beds. Watch your shins in this one.
I am surprised that Holiday Inn is willing put its name on this operation. Certainly not worthy of a major brand and definitely not a 3 star hotel. Stay away from this hotel.
