My husband and I planned to stay at this hotel for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arriving, we found 5 cars in the parking lot, all of which had their doors open. Who the cars belonged to is unknown. There were no other guests there. There was a UVA game in town which caused all the other... More

Our family stayed at James River Inn for 4 nights in March along with many others for a wedding. The best part about the Inn is probably the owner, Walt. He is very hospitable and accommodating and seemed to love our children despite them causing him more work. The views are also spectacular as others have mentioned, and there is... More

Another wonderful stay at the James River Inn. This was the 4th trip for my son and I on our annual hunting trips. While we hunt outside of Scottsville, we stay at the James River Inn. Peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable. If you enjoy privacy, and getting away from it all, this is the place. Highly recommend.

This gem of a property is great for a family reunion. We had a wedding group and this place was great for the family to hang out and talk. Very relaxing. The rooms, while not luxurious, are very clean, comfortable and come with tremendous views. The host was very accommodating. This inn is in the country on the river, but... More

When travelling to Charlottesville area, friends recommended this Inn for our lodging. Views of Blue ridge foothills and James River at sunset are extraordinary. The host made us feel as though we were settling in at an old friends home. In combination with the view, quiet solitude and refined rustic characteristics, I would recommend this facility for personal reflection as... More

James River Inn is a place like no other. If you're looking for a traditional bed and breakfast, this is not your place. However, if you're looking for somewhere a short drive from Monticello and Charlottesville that will give you an amazing view, cabin-like lodging and a great host, look no further. We arrived late at night and the host... More

Well, where to begin. The customer service was deplorable. I have never been yelled at before by anyone in customer service and this was obviously an exception. Our party was mislead to believe that the facility was safe. Clearly with just a small turn lock on the door (that anyone could kick in) is not safe. If I wanted to... More

We went for a fun weekend and we didn't even stay the night. There was no security around the building anyone could have just walked into the place at night and the doors and locks to the room were so sad that I could have kicked them in easily. It isn't a bed and breakfast considering that they don't make... More

First, he made you pay in advance which should've have been the first indication. Then he said, "We don't serve breakfast. There is some bagels you can toast. anyone drink coffee?" One member in our party raised her hand and he stated, "Well, then you gonna have to make your own coffee." The TV was from the 70s..no cable. He... More

We were visiting Monticello, so chose to stay here rather than in Charlottesville as a unique get away. It was a bit of a drive -- south from Charlottesville, past Scottsville -- maybe 20 miles total. Nice, scenic drive. It has a Bed and Breakfast type of feel since it's owned and run by an individual rather than a corporation.... More
