Holiday Inn Charlottesville-Monticello

Reviewed 16 June 2014

I stayed one night here amd the room is just what you might expect froma Holiday Inn. It was clean and bes were comfortable. The TV had plenty of channels and the bathroom had the usual soaps, shampoo, lotions. The front desk staff was great. They helped me out with a couple of things and made the stay pleasant.
The restaurant was quite a letdown. The food was just alright (simply bacon and eggs) but it took 32 minutes to get the food served once the order was placed. I don't know what the hold up was, but other folks seem to have the same experience. I have an idea the kitchen is understaffed. If I stay there again, I will probably just go to the Waffle House down the street for breakfast.

Nothing special about this Holiday Inn. Good clean hotel. The winner here is the staff. Tana and the rest of the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Especially when using the business center. Saved the day.

This was by far one of the nicest hotels I have stayed at in this hotel category. The staff was curious, the rooms were updated, and the breakfast even came with some basic garnishing. Definitely recommend this place.

I am sitting in the dining hall for 30+ minutes to get my breakfast. The kitchen staff seems to be overworked b/c there's a wedding party in the other hall, but this doesn't justify that they screw up other guests' morning schedule. This basically beats the basic purpose of staying here - to be near Monticello to save time. I already lost more time than I saved and I see no end to my wait.

I do not have a particularly high standard for accomodations, as I have travelled across the Middle East and saw much worse places. But I decided to leave my very first review on Tripadvisor with the lowest grade b/c this is just completely unacceptable.

For record, I am staying for a night from May 24th to 25th, 2014.

Dear Woong-ki,
Please accept my sincere apologize for the slow breakfast service you experienced. We were hosting several weddings during your stay and despite our efforts to ensure appropriate staffing, unseen circumstances gave us a big surprise. We are reviewing the circumstance and our recovery options to ensure we do everything in our power to ensure it does not happen again.
If you’re in our area again I hope you give us another opportunity provide a better service experience.

We stayed for one night, and had an outstanding experience. Checkin was quick and cheerful. Late dinner was excellent and a very good value. Nice selections for breakfast. Pet-friendly, yet quiet. Easy checkout.

This hotel was convenient for our tour of presidential homes in the area. The staff was very helpful with dinner recommendations in the Belmont area. The room was very quiet despite proximity to the highway. The bed was extremely comfortable.

This was the 1st time we took are small dog with us at a pet friendly hotel. I'd the room was assigned for guests with pets, I couldn't tell. It was clean and had no pet smell. Room was a nice size and staff very friendly.
