Shabby & Overpriced

Posted Apr 26, 2016 on Hotels
Teensy room, shabby motel condition, overpriced, noisy. Looks like it may also be used for low-income housing. If this is UVA affiliated or owned, they should really be ashamed of the condition of this hotel.

Hello Sorry you felt that way, but I assure you the building has never been used for low income housing, we do feature new furniture by Hilton that was just put in 6 months ago purchased brand new from the manufacture, check out a Homewood suites you will see the same headboards, nights and credenza’s. we also feature a full American breakfast buffet with hot eggs, self-made hot waffle machines, we offer a fitness center, business center, You might try the Marriott or Omni next time in Charlottesville, that might be a little more to your liking. We wish you the best in your future travels.

Nice Hotel at the University of Virginia

Posted Apr 20, 2016
Pros: It was very affordable, it had free WIFI and free parking.
Cons: The bathroom sink stopper needs to be fixed and the door does not lock.
Location: It is at the heart of the University.
From the time we checked in, the front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room was on the third floor which has a nice view overlooking the University.

Great location for Days on the Lawn

Posted Apr 19, 2016
Pros: Loved the location and the simple breakfast and helpful staff
Cons: In the room the shower fixtures had not been updated and the drain device was not working properly. One mattress updated and the other was not
Location: Everything UVA plus Monticello and nearby hikes and wineries and coffee shops and the like
My son and I came to Charlottesville after his acceptance at UVA for a fuller exposure to the grounds and faculty and students at the University of Virginia. The Cavalier Inn was the perfect location and price point for our trip and we found the hotel full of prospective students and parents. It clearly had been an older motel that has been renovated over the years but lobby and staff and services were more than adequate.

Hello I am sorry that you were unhappy with the parking, sometimes we have meeting events related to the University and our parking does get tight but we also have underground parking as well. We wish you the best in your future travels.

Drunk college bros abound.

Posted Apr 11, 2016 on Hotels
This Inn was across the street from the University or Virginia, which was perfectly lovely. Except for the college bros who stood on the balcony yelling loudly shortly after our arrival around 7pm. They were drinking and very loud, so I asked them to please keep it down a bit. They told me "this is college." I thought, no, this is a hotel. I can't imagine why they would be staying at a hotel here instead of a dorm or apartment, but they were very rude. I called to the lobby, and asked them if they could talk to the guys yelling. It quieted down after a bit, but you could hear every person walking around outside, coming in drunk from the bars close by until 3:30AM at my last count. I wouldn't stay here again for close to $200 a night. I should have sprung for the hotel further away from the college that was about $100 more.

Hello I am sorry that you were unhappy, and we apologize, but every hotel sometimes has guests that are loud, students do have to stay in their dorms and, we had a reunion in the hotel over the weekend but it is very rare that we have complaints like this. Our security staff is very quick to address any noise issues. We thank you for letting us know and appreciate you taking the time to do so. We wish you the best in your future travels.

Perfectly nice if you need to be close to campus.

Posted Apr 10, 2016 on Hotels
We were attending a concert on the UVA campus and wanted to be walking distance to the venu as well as a place for dinner. The hotel is adequate and has a breakfast included in the morning. Because it is on campus there were lots of college kids/groups staying there as well, but was generally quiet.
