In the past 50 days, I have spent 20 nights at 9 different hotels. Most of these have similar features (Comfort Suites, Holiday Inn Express, etc.) as the Hampton Inn and Suites.
Pros: The hotel is located on a main route, yet is off of a side road giving it a more quiet external environment. As other reviewers have noted, easy walking distance to a major shopping area and grocery store. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was good. Rates go up on the weekends. Hotel was very quiet even though there were several youth baseball teams staying there for a local tournament. As we were at the half way point in our trip, the staff helped us find a laundry mat in the area.
Cons: After staying in so many hotels, I grew picky about bathrooms and counter space. I found the bathroom to be dinky. Not a huge complaint, but I need space to spread out.
Not really a con, but a comment. The hotel has a shuttle that they will only allow to be used for the hospital and airport. I heard several guests ask about shuttle service to Monticello. If you do not have a car, you will have to take a taxi up to Monticello. If you do so, arrange for taxi service to take you down as cell phone reception is limited on the mountain. We took a couple who were stranded back to their hotel near the U of VA. I saw the shuttle sitting there most of the time, so from a customer service perspective, the hotel may want to include Monticello as a shuttle destination (for a small fee).
Overall, we had a very good stay and enjoyed our visit to Charlottesville, VA............
