The hotel itself seemed to be in good condition and the condition of the room was ok too- but it was not clean. There were hairs in various places in the bathroom, looked like a spilled red drink on the bathroom floor, dirt on some of the blankets/sheets, etc, etc. Would not stay here again, wouldn't recommend it, and unlikely...

We enjoyed this adequately appointed hotel for a two night stay while vacationing in the Charlottesville, VA area. The room was top-notch, clean and quiet. Our room (#724) was spacious with a king sized bed and updated, modern bathroom. The bed was comfortable and fresh! Hubby commented on how slow the wi-fi was which was the only minor irritation.The lobby... More

Easy to find, good location with decent parking. Check-in was friendly and helped with suggestions for shopping and dinner too. Although located on quite a busy street the hotel wasn't noisy. Decent room, comfy beds, good shower, free wifi, nice bar. Had drinks & dinner in the bar which was decent and inexpensive.

The room was clean and nice. Comfortable beds. Breakfast is not included with the room, but we ate in the restaurant one morning. It was just ok. Staff was mostly nice, if not overly attentive. The waiter in the restaurant was very nice and helpful. No complaints really except that the pool cold and was not well stocked with towels.

This hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to and from Charlottesville airport.
