It has been renovated and is as nice as any 5 star hotel I have stayed in. King sized bed room was wonderful. Big bathroom, plenty of light, big shower, refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee. The room was also large and included a long sofa that made a bed. Bed was very comfortable and linens were great. ,

This is apparently the closest hotel to Monticello. Great service, friendly staff, good restaurant, and nice large rooms suitable to family sharing. It's an old building but the lobby looks like it has been recently redone. The rooms could use some updating though. All very fresh and clean. A great place to stay for anyone visiting the historic area. It... More

I have stayed at this hotel every September for the last seven years or so. When I first started staying there it was a very tired Holiday Inn, although I must say, the staff has always been very accommodating. Then a couple years ago they started updating the rooms. They are well kept and tastefully decorated with comfortable beds, a... More

It cost us about $147 a night so we only stayed 2 nights. The outside of hotel looks boring and outdated but inside is modern and nice. Bed and cleanliness was great. The shower was the most greatest thing about this hotel. I did not want to get out. Front desk service where very polite. There is no free breakfast.... More

When my wife and I last stayed at this Holiday Inn, they were in the middle of a renovation. It was a royal pain getting in and out. We were looking forward to returning to the "new" Holiday Inn - Monticello. We were not disappointed with the appearance. The new lobby and dining areas were beautiful. It took us a... More

We stayed here on our way to Cape Charles, Va. We enjoyed the hotel and had a very nice room. It was clean and smelled nice. We had a king size bed and slept well. Not much hall noise. There is a nice shower stall in the bathroom. We will stay here again.

We have stayed here before and chose to return. The place has been recently updated and remodeled. The restaurant in particular is very nice! Excellent service all around. Usually try to stay at Hyatt Place-this place definitely rivaled that hotel in regards to the look, comfort, service, and price. However, breakfast beat out Hyatt Place.
