This motel is within easy walking distance of the University and the main drag, and offers clean and pleasant, though somewhat dated, accommodations. Oddly enough, however, the towels were unusually plush for a budget motel. The room also featured a small fridge and microwave, as well as a flat screen TV. The front desk staff is very kind and accommodating. Breakfast is quite limited (cereal, packaged muffins, juice, coffee) and the breakfast room is a postage stamp, but it is certainly better than nothing. There is a railroad line visible nearby, but we were not disturbed by RR noise. For those on a budget, this is a very good choice.

I found this hotel on a list the University of Virginia Hospital has for family members of the patients that they give out. I was exhausted after staying over 24 hours at the Hospital both in the ER and ICU with my mother. At the hotel, they were so nice to me and the rooms were clean, comfortable, and they didn't have any "odors." Great place!!!

Clean, with small microwave and fridge. Free wi-fi. Good door locks. Continental breakfast was coffee machine coffee, 2% milk for 2 kinds of cereal and packaged baked goods plus juice machine juice.
I have stayed at comparably priced motels in the area and they are not as clean or seemed more dated and/or were located further away from the University and downtown area.

This hotel is a good option if you are looking to stay near to the University of Virginia. The room itself seemed freshly painted, and the carpet looked thick and also quite new. Everything was clean, although the bathroom was a little old. Breakfast was nothing special, and I ate at a diner round the corner. It was about a 15 minute walk to the Rotunda of the UofVa. The hotel is very close to a railway line, although I didn't hear any train noise during the night.

i really liked this place. the guy that greeted me at reception was very friendly and nice. the room was big and very clean. the window faced the UVA sports ground. there was a decent sized flat screen tv (you dont see that in "cheap" hotel rooms!). the location is about a 45 minute walk to downtown, but it is a very pleasant walk, and you get to walk through the uni, which is very beautiful. the breakfast though was filling - but if you're looking for a healthy breakfast, then you will be disapointed. they have little cinneman rolls and muffins full of sugar! there is a restaurant opposite the hotel. also, the number 7 bus is a 2 minute walk from the hotel, which goes downtown (cost is 70 cents). or there is a free trolley that goes downtown, which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. all in all, a pleasant experience.
