This property is a very nice property, one that kind of caught me by surprise. The hotel was in a great location, the staff was very friendly and the hotel was very nicely decorated. I am looking forward to going back once the new rooftop restaurant and bar are opened up in April.

Me and my son spent one night here. The room was clean and nice, however the lobby and hallways are like two star hotel. The room decoration was good for college and university students or family with kids. The elevator was too old and slow. The location was convenient.

The room was nice and the bed was great. The bathroom was inconvenient. The sink was school bathroom style. Cool but no place to put toiletries, toothbrush, etc. I was one old lady, alone, who doesn't even use make-up and there was no room for my deoderant, hair brush, hair spray, and other stuff.

Always curious about this hotel. Finally reserved a room and it exceeded my expectation. Conveniently located next to a favorite Charlottesville eatery, Mellow Mushroom. Everything was great from the front desk to the room. Love the college theme that ran throughout the property.
