“Not impressed.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I stayed 2 nights for business. The hotel is apparently undergoing renovations. The lobby and breakfast area is nice and appears to be recently renovated. My room was on the second floor. I had to go through the lobby, OUTSIDE, back inside, up the stairs (no elevator) and down the dingy hallway.

The room looks like it is partly renovated. The bathroom and entry area looks newly tiled. The bathroom was cheaply renovated. The old light fixtures were removed, no holes were patched, screw still in ceiling, and painted over. The rest of the room was really worn and tired. The carpet was dirty, comforter had a hole, and bed was uncomfortable.

In our party: mom & 3 sons (17, 15, 9)

Kind of hard to write this review because I'm still not sure how I feel about it. The location is fine but the entrance to the hotel is not very nice, with an empty parking area in front of it. A nasty looking old truck was parked in the lot & everyone in the car was quiet as we made our approach; I think we were all having our doubts about this place. Luckily it really wasn't too bad at the hotel.

We stayed on the 2nd floor because the entire first floor was closed for renovations. I'm pretty sure the 2nd floor had already been renovated but, honestly, I'm not positive. The bathroom sink looks great. But the tub was kind of stained & wasn't new. If it had been renovated, the workmanship is quite shoddy ... holes cut into walls were too big for the pipes/fixtures, bathroom tiles weren't applied properly. The beds were squeaky & shaky (but not too uncomfortable) so couldn't possibly have been new. The major complaint is the heating system...daggone NOISY! Most hotels' heating/cooling units are anything but quiet, but this was like a truck was starting up right outside our window. All night long - quiet down, rev up loudly for several minutes, then quiet down, & on & on.

Breakfast was good, with hot, make-your-own waffles, fruits, muffins, etc. The woman working the breakfast area was kind of frazzled, tho, & they ran out of sausage & egg while we were at b'fast. Plenty of seating.

There was an outdoor pool that looked like it might be nice (couldn't tell for sure in 40 degree weather!). The strange thing is that we had to walk outside to get to the lobby/front desk/breakfast area. It was unpleasant in the cold. I'm not sure if this will be any different once the 1st-floor reno is done or not.

Close to Monticello. ~ 3 blocks from convenience facilities. Hotel is undergoing complete renovation, Winter/Spring 2013. Two stories. Free 'hot' breakfast. Onsite Management and service is great. Our student group was primary occupant. Made the best of renovation hardship.

No elevator, no wake up call due to phone doesn't work. It smells probably due to renovation. Almost hurt myself because of the tub is Slippy & no soap holder. This is a three stars hotel? I want my money back..

Have stayed here numerous times. The staff seems always on the ball, as well as courteous and helpful. Very convenient location if you are visiting Monticello. Continental breakfast is pretty substantial as well.

We prefer a quiet room at the end of hallway away from exits, elevators and stairways. We did get a king room as requested, but unfortunately the next door neighbor was very noisy so we asked to have the room changed. The manager, Rajesh, and his assistant, Elizabeth, could not be nicer. They moved us to a quieter room which made all the difference in the world. We were able to relax and enjoy the evening. The room was very clean. The breakfast was also very good. We enjoyed our stay. The location is away from the road so no traffic noise and it's close to all the sights in Charlottesville.

Room Tip: If you prefer a quiet room ask for one on the second floor in the middle of the floor. It's a fa...
