My wife and daughter stayed here for one night prior to her tour of the Nursing School on a Saturday in October. We usually stay at the Cavalier Inn across the street but it was booked so we stayed at the Excel Inn & Suites. The rate was very reasonable, the room was clean (though the overhead lightning was a...

Booked this motel for a girls reunion weekend at UVA and the motel exceeded my somewhat reserved expectations. The staff was very nice and accommodating, the room was clean and spacious and the location was very close to grounds. Largest downside is that it is located right next to the train tracks, so if you are a light sleeper be...

We stayed in Excel Inn for three nights. Check in was easy and was given a room near the laundry. Although the train track was behind the hotel, we did not hear any sound from the train because the sound of the aircond managed to cover it off. Breakfast was simple and check out is fast. Good and large room....

Went for a quick trip to visit UVA this summer and hotel was more than adequate - clean, quiet with breakfast included. They even let us leave the car in their parking lot for the day while we explored C-Ville

The motel is in the middle of the U of V campus and, for visiting the college quite convenient but we were not there for the college. The room was OK and it was clean. There were a couple of problems. I tripped going into the bathroom at night as the door saddle was raised more than usual. There were...

Room was clean and recently updated. Only had two towels in the room. Strangely no desk available in the room. Layout of the motel is weird. Parking lot is a bit cramped. There was an internet lounge with free coffee until 11 pm. Breakfast was better than average.

This facility needs a serious upgrade. The furniture in the room was broken and down right ugly with the finish scratched and peeling. The bathroom had no counter top and no towel rack. I would not recommend staying here.

Would you like to experience a stay in a depressing and shabby motel so that you would know first hand what people of very little means have to deal with? If so, you could stay at the Excel Inn. Although at $140 for one night this place is seriously overpriced. Granted this was a Friday night and the prices are...

The Excel was a good value. The price was very reasonable and the accommodations were better than we expected. We wanted a decent hotel that was close to UVA medical center, and that was reasonably priced. The Excel met our needs well. The breakfast pretty solid, the room was clean and spacious, and the proximity to the hospital was good....

I admit I was a bit skeptical when booking this hotel. I had seen some great reviews, but am a bit jaded about these things. I can honestly say it was better than even those positive reviews led me to believe! This might just be the cleanest hotel I have seen in years! The bathroom looked like it was just...
