“Just Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We stayed one night in this hotel. Our room was fine, but our friends room was not. Their bathroom was old and dirty. When they looked at our bathroom, it seems ours had been rehabbed and theirs had not--but that is no reason for hair and other gunk in the shower! The hotel is also in an out of the way location, most convenient to Interstate 64 and not much else--we ended up having to go about 10 minutes away just to get a decent cup of coffee in the morning!

Dear Bachaney,
Please accept my apology for your friend’s shower experience. You are so right! No matter the state of renovations, there should never be a dirty anything. Thank you sharing your comments with us. Rest assured we are working hard to ensure this does not happen again. We hope to see you again soon.

Can't really find fault with this hotel - friendly, helpful staff, clean and modern rooms with all amenities, wifi in the room. They moved us to a different room when we didn't like the view (of the roof with the satellites!) with no trouble at all. There is a restaurant on-site that we didn't use, but looked pretty good, and the pool was fine, though obviously not used that much.

Great location for visiting Charlottesville and Monticello - and supermarket, petrol station and fast good places nearby.

Only thing I'd say is this hotel is right on the highway and can be noisy. Otherwise, great place!

This was the fifth hotel on our tour of Virginia and we enjoyed our two night stay very much. We checked in at 2pm. Check-in was quick and efficient - the reception staff were very friendly. Our rooms were on the second floor. They were very clean and comfortable. The hotel provided a great base for our visits to Monticello and Shenandoah. There was also a supermarket nearby so we could easily stock up with chocolate! Breakfast was good. We chose to eat in the restaurant on one evening after a long day of driving. The food was tasty and the service good. Free parking and wi-fi were welcomed as this had not been the case in the other hotels on our tour.
The only down side was the pool which was absolutely freezing!
I would recommend this hotel.

Clean and updated. Bed was very comfortable. Front desk person had great maps and information about the area. Close to UVA and historic mainstreet. Only seven miles to Monticello. Breakfast was good and moderately priced.

Very comfy beds with newly remodeled bathrooms. Room was quiet despite the hotel having near full occupancy. The price was a tad high but a nice location if you have a car to visit Monticello or downtown Charlottesville.

I have stayed at several hotels in the area, and this is a good choice. Like most good hotels in this area, it is expensive but worth the extra cost. The rooms were typical of the Holiday Inn chain, and it is located near one of the main streets. I would stay here again.

was so excited for first night of vacation. was so disappointed. they said they were giving us a newly remodeled room. it was almost ok. but then the A/C decided to bang and clank from 1:30am until i fot up at 4am and kicked it and took it apart... and finally had to turn it off and open the window (summer heat), which was right over the entrance (plus you could here interstate traffic). it was one of the worst nights' sleep my family ever got. and when i brought it to the staffs attention at check out, all the guy said was "i'll notify maintenance. thanks for your stay." and turned to help someone else. worst night at a hotel ever and i didn't even got a "sorry." i expected a refund. we won't be back (and we've been going there since 2001 on the way to the beach).

Room Tip: go somewhere else
