If you have any business to do with UVa, Budget Inn might be the best choice other than Cavalier which costs a lot more. Otherwise you should consider futher up Emmet St North where there are a wider range of hotels/motels to choose from.
Price wise it is not cheap but still relatively low compare to many other hotel chains, especially on Friday and Saturday. It is difficult to find a room in Charlottesville on Friday/Saturday when there is an event like ball game. The prcei goes up quite steep Friday/Saturday.
The breakfast is nothing to talk about, same old stuff every morning, The owner/manager is friendly and helpful.
Still I would stay here if I need to go to campus everyday. It is definitely better than the EconoLodge next door!
