Walking distance to most of the campus

Posted Aug 2, 2017
Extremely convenient to UVA. Has a small pool, which was nice. There was only one person at the front doing check in and handling the phone, which was a little inconvenient, but he was a pleasant young man who was obviously doing his best.

Convenient location - Good rate

This hotel is in a prime location for a stay in Charlottesville. The interiors are showing some age. My room had a loud AC unit.

Bed was comfortable. Convenient having mini frig in room. Low water pressure in shower. Decent breakfast. Wifi terrible- kept dropping signal. Very convenient to UVA & next to Emmit/Ivy parking garage.

Convenient and clean

Posted Jul 27, 2017
Pros: Convenience of location and cleanliness of room.
Cons: Outside areas could be spruced up a bit.
Location: UVA campus.
I stayed in this hotel for summer orientation for first year UVA students. It is very convenient to campus, fairly priced, and the room was very clean with a comfortable bed. Nothing fancy but it suited the purpose well as I was only there for 12 hours. Plentiful breakfast as well.

Great Value

Posted Jul 22, 2017
Pros: Centrally located, within walking distance of the University and shops/restaurants.
Location: Close to many shops and restaurants.
The more affordable hotels in Charlottesville tend to be dirty and uncomfortable, but not the Cavalier Inn. It's clean, up-to-date and offers a decent breakfast for its guests. It's also very accessible from the highway, and is close to the University.

At least it was close to UVA

Posted Jul 21, 2017
Was rudely greeted by the staff upon check-in. Hallways were extremely hot. Elevators very slow. Breakfast almost completely gone and dining room messy both mornings at 7 am. Shower pressure low and temperature would not stay hot. Door to the outside did not close completely.

Free Shuttle Unavailable Weekends: Bait & Switch!

Posted Jul 21, 2017
Pros: The breakfast was good and the elevators were still in working order.
Cons: Renovate the hotel so that it looks like a nice campus inn rather than a dilapidated, outdated motel dating back to the Eisenhower Administration!
Location: Lovely UVA campus, with a wide array of college town restaurants.
I booked this hotel because of its proximity to the UVA campus and its promise of a "free airport shuttle" featured prominently on both the Expedia and Hotel websites, as well as on Expedia's booking confirmation. After emailing the hotel twice via Expedia's "Manage Booking" option to schedule the airport pick-up time and weeks later to remind the staff of my Saturday arrival, I was only told upon arrival at CHO airport that "the shuttle doesn't runs on weekends." On the plus side, the hotel is within walking distance of campus for those who love to walk. Moreover, its breakfast is decent. The hotel itself, however, is very run-down, with huge stains on the carpeting (over one square foot in places like the elevator). The description and website photos make this hotel look somewhat classy, but perhaps the only thing that's a bit upscale is the facility's price.
