Convenient, affordable hotel for UVA visit

Posted 30-Jul-2015
Pros: Location and price
Cons: The room makeovers are average and the lower parking deck was pretty dark and sketchy - I was a bit hesitant leaving my car there but there was none
Location: close to the UVA campus, corner, easy access to major highways
Can't beat the location if you are visiting UVA. Beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. The free breakfast was pretty basic but fine and the coffee good and plentiful. A great place if you want an affordable, close to UVA location and aren't looking for a lot of frills.

Solid 2 star hotel. Good location.

Posted 30-Jul-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: 1) The room had a safe for valuable. The lock did not work.... 2) Temperature adjustment on the AC unit did NOT.... 3) The TV remote was missing
Location: Visit UVA campus and old town
Breakfast was good - good selection of food. Decent quality. The stay was good overall, but we had several issues. Overall, it is OK for one night stay. It is a solid 2 star hotel.

Very basic room. Air conditioner had issues.

Posted 27-Jul-2015
The hotel staff was excellent. The room however was not what I expected after looking at the photos online. The room was clean, mattress was awful and air conditioner had issues.

Wifi slow as molasses

Posted 24-Jul-2015
The hotel is your basic motel. Convenient to UVA, and the staff is nice, but the room I had was filthy behind the furniture. Biggest problem was the wifi, which was so slow I could barely get anything done.

Staying as a Cavalier

Posted 19-Jul-2015
We choose this hotel because our daughter is now searching for her college home. The staff was incredible and accommodated us in every request. The hotel and room themselves were clean and comfortable. The décor is dated, but some remodeling will bring this hotel into the new century.

Nostalgic!

Posted 18-Jul-2015
The exterior of the hotel was very nostalgic in its decor. The staff was friendly and helpful in answering any questions. The room was clean, quiet and nicely decorated. There were areas where the hotel needed some TLC, but overall it was very nice. The pool was clean and the breakfast was hot and delicious. We would stay again if we're in Charlottesville, VA!

Nice hotel close to UVA and Downtown mall

Posted 15-Jul-2015
Enjoyable stay at the Cavalier Inn. Would recommend, and would stay here again. Location is right on campus, and it is also very convenient to downtown. The staff is very friendly, the breakfast is good, and the rooms are very quiet.
