My husband and teenage son stayed in this hotel over a weekend this summer. Overall, we found it to be comfortable and clean. All three of us slept well. The desk chair did not adjust, so my husband ended up sitting in the lounge chair at the table instead of at the desk, which was okay but not the purpose...

I stayed at this property while my daughter attended an event at UVA. The staff is delightful. The lobby area has been remodeled since I was last there and it looks great. The location is great. The room was quiet and the property appeared to be full. BUT the room itself cost $160.90 and was in need of renovation. The...

Would not recommend this hi. The first room smelled like smoke. They moved us it was better. Meaning the room just did not smell. The pool area unfortunatly had food and ants on the ground. People were smoking outside and kept the outside door propped open so the smoke smell was coming right in. The pool needs to be redone,...

The front desk personnel are professional and helpful. The company is not putting trainees on duty here. As usual, this was a good stay. The good and the mediocre: Good: 1. Experienced staff who seem to have a knack for the hospitality business. 2. Breakfast: Excellent service and food. The servers are attentive without being annoying. I noticed that they...

Stayed 3 nights. Clean and very spacious room. Comfortable bed with many pillows of different firmness. Close to university, mall and downtown. Short drive from Monticello (but still not bad). Super friendly staff. Theresa in the bar/restaraunt was wonderful! Reasonably priced room service although I didn't order anything. The pool/fitness room were basic, but then again, I didn't use them....

Can't say enough about Charles and his team at the Holiday Inn in Charlottesville. They are ALWAYS consistent, reliable and available and 99% of the time, have everything ready and correct when we arrive. The 1% of the time they don't, they genuinely smile and correct it on the spot! Great people, great service great hotel!

So my company booked me for a Holiday Inn and I wasn't thrilled, but couldn't change the reservation. I didn't have good luck with Holiday Inns before, but I did with this one.

Older Holiday Inn which means large rooms with nice furniture and comfortable beds. Great location. The property was very quiet. The outside entryways had beautiful flowers. Room service food was great for breakfast. For some reason, there are sliding doors to an outside balcony. These may have been used at one time, but now you can only open them 4...

This is my third stay at this property within the past six months. Each time I have had a pleasant night's sleep, thanks to quiet and clean rooms.
