clean and comfortable

Coca Cola machines would be a great addition....not everyone is a "Pepsi" generation. Also, the machines should be updated to accept dollar bills, not just change. When guests arrive late in the evening and are thirsty after hours of driving, its a hassle to have to go out again to get change. The front desk cannot always have change available.

Nice Stay

Recently, my family attended a Family Reunion in the Charlottesville, Va.,area. Most of the guest stayed at the Cavalier Inn. The Inn was clean and the front desk staff were very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast which was included was fair, but there are plenty of places to eat near the inn. All in all the Cavalier Inn is affordable, clean and centrally located near the University of Va.,shopping and other historical points. My family will definitely stay at the Cavalier again!

Nice Basic Hotel

This was a perfectly pleasant hotel. Nothing fancy, nothing out of the ordinary. The rooms could use a little sprucing up here and there -- the place is looking its age -- but it was perfectly clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast included hard-boiled eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy, yogurt, french toast, waffles and a large selection of muffins, pastries and bagels. A bargain at this price point and I would definitely stay there again. Nothing fancy -- this isn't the Ritz, for sure -- but much nicer than most places in this price range. The lobby was very attractive, the breakfast room was clean, the wi-fi worked fine. Absolutely no complaints.

Better than usual this trip

The location can't be beat if you're visiting UVA, and the free breakfast is one of the best I've had (with a roomy breakfast area). But the rooms are dark, with NO natural light unless you don't care about privacy, and noise is easily transmitted if other guests are not considerate. On this trip, there was no wireless internet signal in my room, but at least the room was cleaner than others I've stayed in at the same hotel. Charlottesville hotels are not cheap. Stay a half hour west in Waynesboro instead -- you'll get a much nicer room at the same or lower price.

Nice stay, nice location, slow elevators

I had a nice stay and liked the location but gave up on using the very slow elevators--it was much faster to take the stairs.

Mostly good...

Room quality was excellent for the price... clean bathrooms, comfortable beds. HVAC system needs updating, though. Carpetting in hallways needs to be replaced. Free continental breakfast was nothing special but was adequate. The coffee (can't remember the brand) was awesome! BIG NEGATIVE: The Wifi did not work in my room. This was a huge disadvantage for me. I mentioned this to two different persons at the front desk staff. Both apologized and thanked me for letting them know. One said they are aware of the issue and are working on improving the connectivity. IF YOU NEED INTERNET ACCESS FROM YOUR ROOM, you should call them and make sure you get a room that has it.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The best thing about this hotel is it's location. UVA, "The Corner," and Barracks Road shopping plaza are short walks from the hotel. My room overlooked UVA's Carrs Hill field. It was fun to watch the students play soccer and ultimate frisbee on a sunny afternoon.

Awesome deal

My husband and I frequently visit John Paul Jones Arena for concerts but have never stayed overnight. This time, we chose to stay at the Cavalier Inn for its unbeatable price, location, and convenience rather than drive 2 hours back home. We were extremely satisfied. You can see the John Paul Jones Arena from every room. Its THAT close. Despite being located dangerously close to a main road, the rooms are surprisingly quiet. It it essentially located in the heart of the UVA campus and, therefore, is a 5-minute walk away from good food and hang-out spots. We definitely recommend staying here and will be staying again soon.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are visiting for a concert at the John Paul Jones arena, definitely stay here. Its clean, cozy, quiet, and provides a good night's rest after all that screaming, dancing, and moshing. Also, the short distance to the arena parking garage helps to secure a good arena parking space.
