campus visit base camp

The location is very convenient for campus visits to UVA. The staff were extremely friendly. The room was clean. The pool was small but we enjoyed it. The breakfast was OK and there were many tables in the breakfast area. The elevators were slow and the building looks rather old, but we found it adequate for our needs.

Go about a half mile down University, just past the Thomas Jefferson statue, for some very cozy restaurants with outdoor seating.

cavalier inn

Room was neat and clean. Good value for the money. Close to U of Virginia. Very nice personnel. We checked in, got a room on the 4th floor. After we unpacked everything, the lights went out. The whole area was DARK, but the motel did not have any emergency generator. So we had to pack up in the dark, and walk down 4 flights of stairs.

Noisy Place!

After arriving at 1:30 am (after a long drive), I was disappointed to be awoken at 2:30 am by a wedding group who was partying outside their room! After notifying the front desk (and hearing the commotion for some time), it took almost 20 minutes for hotel staff to subdue this nuisance. When I reported the above timetable to the front desk upon check-out, I was a given a response of "well they had a wedding party". I will not return to this location.

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 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.
