We stayed there for our first night in charlottesville and we were looking for something really close to the school. This Inn is in the middle of the town and university but it is really old. I know that it is not expensive but in the pictures they have in their webpage it seems much nicer. Also, breakfast is terrible.

Clean and the people are funny and amazing. The room was great also. Bed not to hard or to soft. Extremely clean. And it's only 0.2 miles from the hospital and downtown. The breakfast was great also. Not much more to say lol.

I had a good experience in this hotel. The room was pleasant enough, the location was perfect, close to the UVA campus, and the staff was friendly. Not a big deal, but the coffee maker in the room didn't work, and the fridge was quite loud (it was nice to have one in the room, though). The wifi was not... More

If you're looking for a fancy room, this isn't it. If you're looking for a very clean room, reasonably priced, within a stone's throw of the university, then choose this hotel. I enjoyed my stay. It's a bit 70's motor lodge in that the room doors are outside BUT if you're just looking for a place to shower and lay... More

You cannot control the heating or cooling at this hotel. The hotel is so old it only has heat for the winter air for the summer. Had to get up two nights in a row at 3 a.m. to open the door for 15 minutes to allow cool air to come in. We were not told you could not control... More

From a Professional Drivers view point this is not a hospitable parking lot for 56 Psgr Motor Coaches. Curbed entrances which are far to small to enter without riding up and over coupled with different elevations in pavement/parking lot pavement are so that you will bottom out your Coach becoming stuck. Recommend approaching from "Rothery Road" dropping passengers along curb... More

This was a great stopping point on our migration from New England to our Florida Home. The hotel was right next to the University of Virgina ands short drive to Thomas Jefferson's Plantation. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The guest rooms were larger than normal, beds new and comfortable, clean and we were on the third floor... More

Bed is uncomfortable, linens thin and flimsy, climate control didn't work, noisy (marching band practice across the road, game attendants partying and running up down the hall all night). Clean to a point but has that roadside motel feel more than an Inn.

I picked the Cavalier Inn for it's location close to UVA, expecting that there might be noise issues and some age issues based on other reviews. However, given the time of year, it was very quiet and the rooms were very nice and modern. All rooms are entered from the outside and the eastern side is encased with glass, while... More

We stayed here for a few nights with our 6 month old. The hotel is well situated for people who want to be at UVA. We stayed on the side facing the parking lot, but you have exterior hallways to get to the rooms. The other side facing the marching band practice field is interior hallways (as they have covered...
