“Cute place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

We were passing through Lovingston and needed a nice, comfortable place to stay for the night. We got a great deal online. I read other reviews and they were right. Although the rooms are dated (I liked the murals) the beds were comfortable and the rooms clean. The front desk was helpful with finding somewhere for dinner. Actually there is a shopping center just up the street that has a grocery store, gas station and restaurants/fast food. My only complaint would be that my shower got cold.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

The Village Inn is a no-frills motel located in between two scenic vistas. Everything is extremely clean, and staff is friendly and helpful. The room is pretty dated as far as decor, but it's quaint and cozy. The bed is really firm, but the mattress was covered and clean. We slept soundly, as we couldn't hear anyone in the adjacent rooms. The room was also fresh and smelled clean. There is no coffee maker, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner in the room. However, a Dollar Tree and a Food Lion, plus a few other small stores, are literally two minutes away. The motel is close to two breweries, numerous vineyards/wineries, and about 40 minutes from Charlottesville. We will certainly be staying again.

If you're looking for an inexpensive, BUT CLEAN place to lay your head down at night, then you can't go wrong here ! Sam (owner) is so nice, spotless rooms, and great value! The picture is deceiving, it's actually a quaint, little, well taken care of motel with around 30 rooms. Sam's wife cleans the rooms, so you can be sure they are well taken care of. He even dropped the rate for me since I checked in late (10 pm) and was by myself, thanks Sam !

We have stayed at The Village Inn multiple times over the past 3 years. The owners are so nice and accommodating. You will not find cleaner rooms anywhere, not even large, chain hotels. If you want a clean, quiet room, this is your place. While there aren't fancy amenities, you will be comfortable. )If you want a delicious meal during your stay, go to Vitos. It's about a minute drive from The Village Inn and so worth it!)

This motel gets an 'excellent' for being excellent at what it offers (lol), which is not much! Well...this is a little country town. Not much of anything there at all. I went with a friend to a birthday party for one of her elderly aunts. So you wont find many places to stay anyway.

The room was small but very clean (Room 26...they only have 30). Looked like the floor tile in the sink/bathroom area was brand new. Toilet and sink looked new, and tub looked either new or redone. Beds felt cheap but not worn down or lumpy. No desk or comfortable chair. There were two chairs tho...kinda like breakfast table chairs. Everything was super clean and not a BEDBUG in site...lol!!

HOWEVER...there was NO MICROWAVE, NO REFRIDGERATOR, NO COFFEE MAKER, NO HAIR DRYER, NO IRON AND IRONING BOARD, AND NO ICE MACHINES. But I must say that the office did have one of those little ironing boards that you sit on the table (but there was no table), and a little travel type iron. They would warm food up for you at the office, and ice was available from the office that looked like it came from a refridgerator freezer. It was clean and good, but was shaped like half moons like I get at home. So I'm not sure if it is available 24hrs or not.

The TV (about 19in, regular, not flat screen) was mounted near the ceiling, making it a little hard to see from the bed farthest away. One HBO channel and a few regular channels. Double beds. A good clean place to sleep, shower, and change clothes. Management seemed friendly enough. Sign saying 'Absolutely no pets allowed in rooms'.

One HUGE problem! The heating system doesn't have a thermostat/auto system. In other words the heat is on 'high' or 'low' and stays on til you get up and turn it off. Both get too hot while sleeping. If you turn it off you wake up freezing because no 'auto' will turn it back on when the room cools down. Big, big, problem.

They definitely need some come ups but it was ok for a couple of nights and I would stay again, especially if I don't need heat or air (like in the spring or fall).

Room Tip: Room 26 was small but really clean.

My teenage son and I were attending a track meet in Lynchburg and encountered more snow than expected on our travel home.
We stopped at Foodlion and spoke to Linda. She assured me that the hotel was nice, and often used when she and the other employees were snowed in. She went even further and made a phone call for me to check on availability.
The owner could not have been nicer. The room was spacious and the bedding, towels, carpet and bathrooms were clean. The walls were recently (and well) painted and the bathroom fixtures were new.
The ONLY suggestions I would make are: Softer pillows and a larger TV. .
I would highly recommend this motel for travel. By the way, I work and live at a resort, so I'm a little picky :)

We stayed while visiting friends in the area. My daughter found hair in the bathtub, almost like it hadn't been cleaned from the previous guests. The towels (only 2 small ones for a room for 4 guests) were stained by what looked to be blood. The room smelled of mildew and the beds were lumpy and very uncomfortable. The pillows were like pancakes and were also stained. The comforters on both beds were filthy. The day after staying here, my family and I itched all over. Not sure what that was all about, and don't intend on staying again at this motel to find out.
