Friendy and helpful staff. The bartender was a hoot and made our evening enjoyable, even though they didn't have much food to order that evening. Breakfast was good, I liked a to order breakfast rather than a buffet. We were in the middle of a hurricane though, which is why we stayed in.

Might need better management
It was not the best once checked into our room we quickly realized that it had not been cleaned, both trash cans were full there was a wet rag in the shower from the previous tenet and one of the beds was not made. I didnt mind i figured theyre understaffed and just running a little behind so i told the front desk expecting that when i got back around midnight i would find a clean and ready room but to my surprise nothing got done.

Property is close to UVA which is a plus. Our shower door would not open or close without two of us forcefully moving it-should have been caught by housekeeping prior to us checking in. The handle completely dislodged. We reported it to front desk but door was not fixed. We found ants on our 2nd evening. Menu in restaurant/bar is limited and several items were not available. Food was good however. For $300 per night, very disappointed
