Would have prefered to be on the side with the railing more of a breeze instead of the glass on the balcony. But besides that the room was great! Clean and comfy bed and room! Good amount of space and the hotel service was very nice!

The property is a renovated Best Western across the sports fields of the University of Virginia. It is a converted motor lodge where the exterior walkways have been enclosed in glass panels so that they are under air - nice touch. Lobby is nicely appointed and has an easily accessible elevator. Rooms are clean with nice, comfortable beds with 4... More

This is a renovated old hotel across the street from UVA. Location and parking are great. Rooms are old motel style, somewhat musty. AC is old, cycles a lot. Moderately clean. Beds have plastic mattress cover which crinkles. Can get good price on others websites. Stay there if you understand what you are getting-convenience, price, modest accommodations.

Very convenient to UVA. Breakfast average but good variety. Older hotel. Found bugs in room. Bathroom vanity slanted downward...afraid it would fall off wall. Hotel staff not very responsive. Don't stay on the side facing the road. Glassed in corrider feels like sauna.
