Stayed two nights on a weekend while attending a wedding. Overall, a fine stay and a good value. Some thoughts:
Free access to Gold's Gym right across the road
Indoor pool looked nice, although we did not take advantage.
Rooms (mainly bathrooms) could use some updating
Fitness room was a joke. Two treadmills, a bike, and a broken stair climber. But, see the "pro" above about Gold's Gym.
Getting in/out of this property can be a nightmare during busy traffic times.
Would have been nice to have breakfast included.
Next time I'm in Charlottesville I would probably look for another option, but wouldn't rule this one out!
