I will preface this review, by stating that I almost always rather not write a review than give a "Poor" review rating. So this is one of very few "Poor" reviews I hope to ever write.

We choose this hotel as it is within walking distance to the U Va campus and parking is free. Not being familiar with the area this seemed a sensible choice.

Our room, which faced the street was average in size. The beds were not particularly comfortable. The mattresses were covered with some type of plastic / vinyl that made a fair amount of noise. We had a leaky bathroom faucet that was rather annoying all evening. The thermostat also seemed completely ineffective. We did not have a restful evening at all. On the positive side, the front desk staff were very pleasant.

On top of the above, there was an athletic team staying in rooms adjacent to ours. So it was rather noisy all night. The next morning, by the time we walked into the breakfast area, it was pretty much devoid of food. While I realize both of these are not entirely the responsibility of the hotel, it made our experience less enjoyable.

Long story short, we ended up driving a couple of miles north on Emmett St to get breakfast. There are many hotels in that area that are newer and in better shape. We would have been better off staying in one of these hotels and getting an "Uber" into the university.

Room tip: Close proximity to U Va might not outweigh the short comings

Nice room, staff very courteous and helpful. My tv was not working properly and I was offered another room immediately. Breakfast fresh and good variety. Great location to UVA, shopping and restaurants.

The hotel is the closest to UVA campus. An easy walking distance. On that level (and the budget aspect), it is a great place to stay if visiting UVA. Other than that, it is not a good hotel. The rooms are small, and we had to switch rooms because the heating system was unbearably loud in the first room. It is billed as newly renovated, but appears run down just the same.
Breakfast is included, and it’s fine. The staff is pleasant.

The biggest thing going for this hotel is it is almost on the UVA campus and is an easy walk to the Rotunda and Library. The beds were especially comfortable. Breakfast was included, but we had a hard time finding low carb cereal. We hit a grocery store for cereal and fruit which we kept in our room. The hotel is old and shows it in some places. Our room was very warm, and we had to run the AC at 68 just to keep it cool enough to sleep. I liked the historic pictures in the lobby, and the book decorations behind the desk. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here on a weekend trip to Monticello and UVA when many of the students were away. We found the hotel to be clean ( I did look around based on other reviews) and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast included the usual continental fare as well as bacon, eggs (probably powdered), good coffee, yogurt and plenty of fresh fruit. Free parking was a plus. I don't think the climate controls in the room actually worked. We adjusted the temp and it did not respond except by a degree or 2. Put the fan in the "on" position for white noise and it cycled off. Had to open the door for cool the room.
