During our recent stay in Charlottesville, we decided to try the Econolodge North. We usually stay in a little nicer line of hotels, but had read some reviews of this one and decided to try it. This is an Econo Lodge, so we started with an idea of what we were getting into. We had stayed at the Econo Lodge University (1 mile south) and swore to never stay at an Econo Lodge again.
What a pleasant surprise. This is an older motel. As we entered, we noticed how well maintained and freshly painted the property was. The staff was prepared and our check-in was easy. Once to our room, we were pleasantly surprised to find it clean, well maintained and odorless.
New, it is not, some fixtures were new, some were old, but well maintained. The room was relatively quiet, although we did have some noisy neighbors (college students, loud music) one night.
As you look for hotels in Charlottesville, you quickly realize the area is not cheap. I would recommend that you give this hotel a chance.More
