“not worth the cost”
Reviewed 15 July 2004

Very nice lobby, but it ends there. The rooms are small and desperately need to be updated. If you are unfortunate enough to have a room on the "road" side, prepare for a lot of noise.

They have a continental breakfast, just barely.

They have a "business center" with a computer for guests to use, but they charge 50 cents a minute for internet access!

These rooms are worth about half of what they charge. Unless you MUST be adjacent to the UVa campus, look elsewhere.

This Best Western is an average hotel. Rooms are quite small, but comfortably furnished with 2 double beds. They are clean and modern. The bathroom is set up so that the shower and WC are in one room and the sink area is an extension of the bedroom. A continental breakfast is included and is served daily in a room off the lobby. There is a very small outdoor swimming pool which is only open during summer months. The main reason for staying in this hotel is its proximity to the University of Virginia campus. You can leave your car at the hotel and walk everywhere. If you are coming to Charlottesville for other reasons than UVA business I would look into other hotels in the town.
