Nice people, great location, but building needs work

The people at this Days Inn were very nice, the location was great, the breakfast was decent, and the price was low. But this was partly balanced by the run down building, with nearby vacant rooms open and filled with mattresses; by our smoky-smelling room (even though we explicitly booked a NON-smoking room); and the fact that the pool was already closed before Labor Day started.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Monticello is a can't-miss destination...the price of admission is well worth it. And the Pedestrian Mall in downtown Charlottesville is filled with great walking, people-watching, shopping, and dining, much of it very reasonably priced. The whole area is a gem.

Could Be Better

Room was great, but my room was not cleaned and refreshed one day, even though we removed the privacy tag and left the room by 9:15am. The hallways outside the corridors and stairs were always dirty with cigarette butts and other debris. It was not swept routinely on a daily basis. Good price for the money but cleanliness could be enhanced.

Who is renting the rooms?

The big problem was the people in the other rooms.It seems as if they were long term renters,They hung out on their balconies all night partying and staring at others walking by, making comments in a foreign language.I was sure they were going to confront me when I went to get ice.This was in a good area with high end shopping centers nearby,so I was very surprised and fearful for my family.At 2:30 a.m.,people began screaming right outside our door.No management were ever seen.

wedding trip

it was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Wanted non-smoking, but got two smoking rooms. The rooms were dirty, the bathroom was old, with multiple cracks in the sink and shower. You had to keep the lights on for the outlets to work. Made charging phones very inconvenient. I would never stay there again.

great weekend

This property is well kept ,unfortunately there is a vacant building adjoining the hotel that is in disrepair it takes away from the outside appearance,I was pleasently surprised when I entered the hotel it was lovely. The landscape around the pool was very relaxing. And the total area was very safe.

adequate, no more, no less

Booked on busy weekend. Noisy, had to negotiate awkward stairs to basement level unit. Well pleased with complimentary breakfast. Good free coffee always available. Flat screen HD TV would have been a plus
