“Best location, good price, and readily acceptable quality.”
Reviewed 23 May 2010

An older motel, but kept up reasonably well, with good cleanliness and services. Got a great rate, below average, from Priceline, even better from CheapTickets, so a rebate from Priceline. Included breakfast was below par, yet fair and available, enough for appetite if not savory, yet saving inconvenience of seeking elsewhere. Outside pool looked pleasant, but not warm enough in May. Convenient, brief walk to Alumni Hall, Gymnasium (where dinners and events often held), and the Rotunda. All in all, clean, serviced and comfortable, and a bargain for the price and the convenience.

I have stayed here several times and it is always a pleasure. Although it is an older property, it is well maintained. The staff is very professional and always friendly. The location could not be better for visiting UVA.

Minor complaints--the in room temperature controls were hard to use. Internet very slow. When I completed the hotel's survey, I was presented with an expired coupon.

Although this is or was a Best Western, it has a little something extra. It is owned by the University.

We stayed one night while visiting UVA. Very short walk to UVA tour start. Short walk to campus restaraunts (several choices, not just fast food. ) Hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms are a bit like motor inns but they have made an effort to upgrade bedding and many furnishings. Staff was helpful and gave suggestions of places to eat, told us where to go for running trails, etc. Breakfast buffet was reasonbly varied. Pool not open yet, tho it was 85 degrees in early April and we would have loved a swim. This hotel is so convenient to UVA I would stay here again.

My son and I just traveled to Charlottesville to tour the University of Virginia. Everything we needed to see and do was walkable from this hotel. The room we had was basic and clean. I could not figure out the heating system in our room so the gentleman at the front desk went to our room while we were at dinner and it was warm when we returned. The staff was very accommodating. They also have a free shuttle service to the airport which we used. All-in-all, a positive experience for us. Also, I would recommend the restaurant across the street named The VIlla. Nothing fancy, but the food was good and the location convenient.

Wonferful location, walk to most UVA buildings! Needs some work on rooms and heating systems. Room was 82 when we arrived with no control of temperture, finally opened room door to get some cool air. At mid night I heard a motor and some cold air came out of wall. Overall great people working at The Cavalier. Will giove them another try next fall.

My first reaction is that the hotel is in serious need of upgrades in the guest rooms. The bathroom ceiling badly needed new tiles and a paint job. The lighting was all energy saving bulbs but that made it hard to read, either in bed or in the chairs. Same with the outside lighting by the doors.

The staff was friendly and check in and out was smooth and quick. If you don't have high expectations for a hotel, this is a good place to stay. It is convenient to the college and within walking distance.

Reviewed 31 December 2009

I stayed here in December 2009 and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, from the front desk staff to the breakfast host to the housekeeping staff. The cost was very reasonable for the amenities. The room was clean and nice, and included a refrigerator. Comparable amenities at another hotel would have cost at least $20 more/night. It's not an upscale hotel by any means, but you're not paying for that either.

Location is great for UVA and the John Paul Jones Arena. Access to most anything else in Charlottesville (shopping, downtown) is only 10 minutes, and I appreciated being away from the chaos of Rt 29.

One side of the hotel opens to the outside, which is a cold drawback in winter. The other side is protected by enclosed glass (perhaps ask for this side) and the elevator and stairs are fully inside.

I did not encounter any issues, but I am confident that had there been any, they would have been addressed.
