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.

A good HI, in a great location for visiting Monticello. The room was a good size, with a comfortable bed and the bathroom had a powerful walk in shower. The pool area was a reasonable size and had plenty of chairs and loungers. The staff were always friendly and efficient, particularly in the breakfast area. The breakfast omelettes were tasty...

We just checked in. When booking, i entered all our kids ages and asked for a commendation for 5. When we checked in, there were only for 4. They are charging us $25 for roll away bed. Both beddings had hair all over. This is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in.

This hotel was our last hotel during our road trip. The staff were great at guiding us on touristy things to do. The room and bathroom were clean, although I wish we had a tub instead of shower stall (mainly because a tub is easier to bathe little kids in). The front desk staff were accommodating in printing out tickets... More

Rooms are fine ~ big enough. Slightly worn carpet/window treatments. James, at the front desk, has so far been the highlight. Nicest, most responsive, helpful person I remember having at hotel front desk in a while. Convenient to Monticello, UVA and historic downtown.

Holiday Inn used to be your standard affordable cheap hotel. But lately, it seems like many of them have been redone and their customer service is now excellent.

What you would expect of a Holliday Inn. This one did not offer free breakfast and at least the room we had was directly towards the highway and therfore a noisy experience. Clean and nice room. Ok reception and bar service but nothing special.

I stayed one night here on a business trip and was put in one of the upgraded rooms on the top floor which was clean, quiet and a very comfortable bed. Did not make it to the restaurant area for dinner or for breakfast.
