Positive Reviews

Good access to local attractions

Whether they wanted to visit the University of Virginia campus, explore historic Monticello or shop for antiques in Charlottesville, it seems that this hotel is well-situated for the area. Visitors reported that though it's right off the highway, it's set back from the road so a quiet stay is a guarantee.

Room size a plus

Many were impressed by the size of rooms here. While they are dated, most guests reported that, overall, their units were kept clean and tidy.

Helpful staff, nice hot breakfast

While there have been some customer service issues in the past, it appears that things have improved here recently. Many guests seem impressed with both the professionalism and the friendliness of the staff, with a number singling out the reception team for particular praise. Additionally, the hot breakfast here - especially the waffle station - has received top marks from a number of visitors.

Negative Reviews

All-around renovation needed

There are some reports that, at the time of writing, this property is being renovated into a La Quinta. Though those reports haven't been officially confirmed, a number of guests feel that this hotel is in need of serious renovation. Many report damp, musty smells in the lobby and in a number of rooms as well as dirty tubs and carpets.

Hit or miss elevators

A number of guests have commented that while this property does feature an elevator, this amenity is also in need of refurbishment. Some noted that the elevator was out of service during their visits while others reported a rather jerky ride.

Blink and you'll miss it

This property was very difficult to spot from the left side of the road. Some felt that better signage would have smoothed their way into a much better stay.
