I was very surprised at the low quality of this hotel, given that its rates are not bargain basement and it's one of the primary properties serving UVA. Our room was plain dirty--carpets not vacuumed, visible dirt on the bed comforters, moldy shower curtain, rusty shower rod, and a general air of less-than-freshness. When we checked in, our room was out of toilet paper. The free breakfast featured sour milk, bacon that looked like it was cooked three days ago, and again, dirty, debris-covered carpets and sticky, crumb-covered tables. When I mentioned the state of the room to the receptionist at checkout, she said she'd "mention it" to housekeeping. Only when I pressed did she issue a not very sincere apology. I would say the quality of the room and inn was far below a national bargain hotel chain like the Holiday Inn. In short, it was kind of a dump.
