room ok and clean, bathroom would need renovation

Posted 22-Nov-2014
Pros: Close location to UVA
Cons: Main female staff should be replaced. Bathroom renovated.
Location: Great location to UVA - so good place for parents to stay when they visit their children if they don't want to spend too much money
The bedroom itself was ok and clean, but the bathroom needs doing up: the shower wasn't working properly, the toilet had problems with flushing. They only made the beds in the morning and exchanged the towels but no cleaning otherwise. Also no microwave as advertised and the fridge was not working (we had to through out our food stored in it but we actually were reimbursed for it which was nice). As mentioned in other reviews it wasn't very nice to have breakfast out off plastic plates and cups. The female staff who mainly worked at the receptionist wasn't very friendly and helpful.

Good location

Posted 14-Nov-2014
Pros: Location near the University. Better than other choices down the Corner and not as expensive.
Cons: The bathroom fixtures are a bit dated and the breakfast selection could have been a little fresher.
Location: I stayed here because I was doing research at the University. Easy walking distance to anything on Grounds.
I chose this hotel because it was close to the University. It is a pretty old hotel and although some updating has been done, some things (bathroom fixtures, etc.) are still old. My room faced onto Emmett Street, but noise was not a problem. The bed was comfortable, and a small work table was provided. Parking was provided and is located just behind the hotel. Short stay, but provided what I needed.

Close to UVA

Posted 03-Nov-2014
Pros: Belgian waffle at breakfast
Cons: Room decor; shower facilities; bathroom amenities (shower gel, soap, etc.)
Location: UVA
The best thing about The Cavalier Inn is it's location. It is literally across the street from UVA, so it is convenient for those who are visiting the university or the immediate area. The facility, however, is disappointing. This motel could use an overhaul! The lobby is much nicer than the rooms. Dated decor (including heavy drapery), carpet and shower fixtures all left me wondering about the room's overall cleanliness. Even the iron was old! I could not change the thermostat, so the room was far colder than was comfortable (nor was there an extra blanket in the room). The best thing about breakfast was the waffle iron. I was grateful for a hot breakfast, but could not ingest the scrambled egg product or the meat. The breakfast attendant was helpful, and lovely. Wonderful customer service. There are other hotels in the vicinity: I would recommend one of those. I was able to book this Inn at a discount, but the discomfort of staying at a motel was not worth the discounted price.

Convenient location, affordable price

Posted 22-Oct-2014
Pros: The customer service was exceptional, the breakfast was pretty good. Very accommodating to families with children.
We stayed off peak, with two children. It's close to everything. Although the building is old, the rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful and considerate.

Great for the price

Posted 20-Oct-2014
Pros: Four things: Price, location, location, and location.
Cons: It could be modernized, but at what cost? I liked paying not a lot for a great location and OK accommodations.
Location: Right next to UVa, perfect location for walking to the grounds.
It's fairly spartan and the building is dated, but for the price and location, it's a great value.

Great location

Posted 16-Oct-2014
Last minute booking and a very good value. Did not interact much with any staff. Could tell that the place had been modernized. Breakfast would have been nice.
