We stayed at this hotel due to a memorial service. I have never stayed in a Holiday Inn. Simply because the name scared me away. Not anymore. These ladies went above and beyond for our entire family. I could not ask for a better front Desk Manager. She should be promoted. There was a wicked storm and power went out... More

This hotel confirmed to us that the larger Holiday Inn locations are not necessarily any better than the Express versions of their hotels. While it was just fine for a night, it was definitely set up to cater to those who are business travelers and/or able to spend more money on the road. The room was fine, and the pool... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn for a weekend to visit some friends in town. The hotel staff were polite and very helpful. I accidentally deactivated one of the keys when I placed it near my cell phone and the staff was very understanding about providing us with a new key for our room. Our room was clean and spacious,...

Unfortunately, due to UVA activities, hotels were limited and I had to pay $125/night for a room here. I could tell from the outside that this was an older hotel but when I walked in the lobby, I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. However, then we went down the elevator and were welcomed with that old hotel smell. It... More

We were allowed to check in early ( about 1:30 ) which was welcome for us as weary travelers. Staff always helpful and friendly. Room was quite large for a discounted ($64) price. The hotel was near downtown and the UV. There was a full service, all meal restaurant and a very nice indoor heated pool. The only problem was... More

We thought the hotel was great. It was clean and although aging, the carpet was nice and the room was a good size and clean. We have stayed in Holiday Inn Express and others and we did not think this one was that different. It was convenient to the University, UVA hospital, shopping and highways we needed to be taking....

This hotel was awful aside from the lobby which seemed to be recently renovated. The room we stayed in was awful and very dirty. The bathroom door did not close or lock and there was no heavy curtain to keep the light out of the room at night while sleeping. Front desk person did not even answer the phone. I... More

For the past several years I (along with some of my colleagues) have held a weekend retreat at this hotel. We have a total of about 125+ customers (predominately women) that participate in our event.

I work often at University of Virginia and this is one of my hotel's of choice when working in Charlottesville, VA. It is convenient to the University and provides a great value in cost per night.
