Adorable hotel with cozy and charming room/bathroom. Across the street from the UVA medical campus. Walk to restaurants and shops. Staff was great. I’d highly recommend staying here! We will come again!

this hotel is on the more expensive side of Charlottesville hotels and at first glance appears to be a destination spot and great value. It was not. Stripped of all services- housekeeping, bar, morning coffee , it aligns more closely with your average roadway motel with a steep price.

We booked a one night stay here through Expedia. The day before our stay, we received a welcome text from the hotel. We had a busy day and didn't plan on checking in until after our dinner. After 10 PM, we received a text from the hotel saying that they were oversold and moving us elsewhere and they would cover a 1-night stay. The hotel they tried to move us to was not pet friendly and lesser quality. I called and they moved us to a new hotel that was pet friendly. I spoke with Vincent at the Graduate and he ensured me I'd have no problems at check out at the new hotel. When I checked into the new hotel, they said our stay would be covered by the graduate. Upon check out, I was charged over $500 for our stay by the Quirk hotel. Overall, a terrible experience with the Graduate with poor recovery for their mistake and follow through. The Quirk is refunding our stay and reaching out to the Graduate for payment.

Way understaffed, the rooms were loud (we could hear dogs at all hours of the day and night), the rooms are also very outdated - we even had a door fall off the credenza when we tried to open it, the front desk service was slow and then sent us to a room that was dirty, the elevators are incredibly inefficient.....too many things to list. While the location is great I would NOT recommend.

Might as well have stayed in a cheap motel and saved a lot of money as none of the advertised services or amenities were available. They even tried to insist on obligatory valet-parking for an extra fee. Booked this room to have a convenient place to spend the night prior to early morning surgery at UVA hospital and for my spouse to have a convenient place to stay while I was in hospital. The location was good, but as for the rest, it was a huge disappointment. The staff were friendly and did try to make things better.
