I had a great stay at the Graduate—it’s the most affordable option with great staff for being close to Uva and the Corner. My only complaint is that all of the coffee creamers in my room were completely spoiled—poured out in chunks into the sink. Luckily there’s a good coffee shop in the lobby with lovely employees.

The fromt desk is terrible. When checking out, the couple before me had some issue and all people had to wait for thirty minutes since they did not open other POS that day. Then, on my credit card they misplaced the accomodation fee even though I paid through Expedia. After the long process, they promised me to take it over but failed to give me any receipt. Oh dear, next morning I found out they charged me another 100 dollar without any reason. I am still waiting their reply but no response yet. The hotel is just like University’s guest house. Do not expect it as the real hotel.

This property is quite old and dated. The rooms are real nice but they didn't seem to do much with the hallways, elevators and common areas. This property was a Howard Johnson's back in the early 80s when I was in high school and it was an old building way back then. All the hallways have an old crusty musty smell
