Needed Maintenance

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions over the years, given its combination of location and price. Most of these visits have been fine, but this past weekend was not, as our request to have the clogged bathroom sink was never acted on. (When the water was run it drained v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y and the prior crud backed up into the sink.) Also, the heat / air conditioning unit did not work and the front desk staff was notably unsympathetic to the issue.

Pleasant stay

The hotel is showing its age a bit in terms of threadbare carpet and dated fixtures, but it was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect for a quick trip to Charlottesville. It was a bit odd that the room door stood wide open when we first went up to drop our bags. The shower didn't have much pressure, because most of the water still went out of the spout after the shower knob was pulled. We left early in the morning before the breakfast service started, so I can't comment on the food quality. Not the Ritz Carlton, but a good place to stay for a no frills visit.

Great location

Hotel shuttle service was a bonus as the Charlottesville airport is a considerable way out. Breakfast is included and has a reasonable selection. Good value for money

Short Getaway

The hotel is not far from restaurants and shops and we enjoyed our walk up University Ave and Main Street. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and the price was very reasonable. The only negative would be a noisy air conditioner and a mattress that was a little hard. We would stay there again, but would ask for a room on the back side of the building.

Approximately one mile from the hotel is the fantastic Peter Chang's China Grill. If you like Szechuan cuisine, this is not to be missed.

so so overnight stay

Pool was CLOSED due to some ADA sling construction.....that had not yet started....weather was warm. Pool could have been opened until construction started. BEDS were terrible for both my wife and I...not comfortable. Sorry, but that's the way it happened It did not ruin our stay..just annoying!

Great Travel Value

The Cavalier Inn was a good value for the price. We booked through Orbiz and that saved around $30. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Breakfast offered waffles, fruit, rolls, or cereal. Good selection for being free. The breakfast room is extremely large and comfortable. Guys at the front desk when we checked in had a great sense of humor. The only negative comment would be that the hotel appears to have originally consisted of outdoor entrances on each level. These exterior passages have now been enclosed [plexiglass?] and there are elevators to each floor but the exterior corridors were very cold at this time of year and I would imagine they are quite hot in summer. Once inside the room, however, no problem. And each room offers a microwave and fridge - a GREAT aminity when on the road. Would definitely stay again.
