Good Value in Charlottesville

Days Inn offered a good value in Charlottesville. The room has the things to make a business visit productive. The internet connection is fast and their was a large desk in the room. There was an ironing board and mini fridge and a microwave, all in good working condition. These were the critical things that made the trip pleasant. The televisions are bit dated, and the décor is a bit shabby, but all things I needed were there. The location is a short 5 minute drive to everything in Charlottesville. I am sure I will stay here again.

Reasonable Place to stay for business

The good- the rooms are a good size with a nice desk for a computer. The mattresses are firm and comfortable. The bathrooms have generous vanities and the shower was warm immediately. Breakfast is passable with make your own waffles, cereal, muffins, juice and coffee. The physical plant could use some updating. One of the ceiling tiles in the bathroom was delaminated. The microwave had analog dials which was a bit surprising. One side of the hotel overlooks a for sale/abandoned pool and restaurant.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The indian restaurant across the street and up a block is quite good if you like spicy food.

The swimming pool was closed for repairs. There were loud people outside our room late at night. There was no hotel security to keep people quiet. The faucet moved around because it was not connected.

Affordable stay

Rented a room for a business trip. The room had a microwave, fridge, desk and television, all in working order. The bed was comfortable. The hotel is minutes to downtown Charlottesville. Breakfast was adequate with eggs and biscuits, fruit and cereal. The staff was pleasant. The view could be better, as the pool looked in a state of disrepair and possibly abandoned. But I was happy with the space and the location.

cheap hotel, expensive price

We stayed here for a concert at the john Paul Jones arena because it was in walking distance. The location was great. The hotel on the other hand was gross. It looks like nothing has been updated or washed since the seventies. The bathroom was gross and was unsuitable for walking on while barefoot. The pool area ever though closed was very unsightly and should be filled in. Positives - location - about one mile from JPJ arena, temperature easily controlled, housekeeping staff friendly, but none of them spoke English so it was hard to get extra amenities. Negatives - PRICE, I understand that it was a concert weekend so you can jack up the price but $171 for two nights at this hotel is absolutely ridiculous. Front desk staff acted annoyed that they had to check us in and.provide us with WiFi password. Room was disgusting, especially the bathroom. Shower was small. Pool area and closed restaurant were sore spots that our room ov overlooked.

not bad

I paid about $25 extra booking through the travel sites. Next time I wouldn't do it through that. I would directly book it through the hotel website.

Terrible - overpriced

Went through multiple sets of door keys because none would work. Several patrons walked by expressing same frustration .. One couple had stayed there previously & said had same problem the first time. They finally moved us, & yes, same problem. Bathroom not super clean & tub floor was squishy like something was going on underneath & they threw an insert in to cover it up. Stay elsewhere
