looking for a fun place to stay

I left Charlottesville in 1993 and bringing my husband back this summr to meet the town and college I loved so much. It's part of a two-week friend reunion up and down the east coast, so I'm hoping to do it on the cheap (definitely less than $150). I'm trying to be somewhat of an adult and not crash on friends couches the entire trip, but I'm still a bit of a cheapskate.

I'd love some place walkable either to the downtown mall or UVa.

Not a fan of generic hotels nor antique filled rooms.

I used to work at the Roasted Bean all those years ago, so if anyone remembers that coffee shop that's the kind of place/energy I'm looking for. Thanks for your ideas!

Charlottesville is not a cheap place to stay and you want a prime location - downtown. i would suggest Alexander Hostel. It is in the Belmont area a short walk to downtown.

If you don't like to hostel, you might try Inn on South Street - I'm not sure of their prices but they have a lot of rooms as they have two buildings just a block off the downtown mall.

Otherwise just google "motel" and Charlottesville and look for a motel on the map that are close to downtown.

Thanks! I actually found a place two blocks from the downtown mall - the Leathers-Snyder B&B. I know I had this idealized view of what prices would be (as in 1990 prices). My eyes are opening ever wider.

Thanks again for the suggestions.
