Holiday Inn has maintenance prbblems

Checked in, desk staff was warm and personable. Went to room and bathroom light had a 10 minute delay before coming in. Call front desk and informed them of problems. They changed the room. Inspected second room, room entrance light flashed like a strobe light Hotel. Staff tried to change room again but that new room did not have refrigerator. Pillows on bed were small, requested more pillows, staff brought more pillows but one was torn with filling going all over the floor. Bathtub had mold going underneath soapdish and there was dust on top on light fixture. The toilet seat kept falling down after being raised completely to the vertical position. The computer chair was too short for using a laptop on the desk in the room. There was not enough electrical outlets by the desk. This hotel was about 35 years old with the minimal of room amenities.

Good place to stay

Overall, our stay at the Holiday Inn was a good experience. We were checked in very quickly upon arrival, and the room was clean and seem like it had been updated recently. We didn't try the hotel restaurant, but it looked like it had a good menu, and it offers a great breakfast selection. The location is great for everything, whether it be visiting UVA, going to Monticello, or visiting the downtown area.

Under Contruction

The hotel was obviously under construction. The manager, while very friendly and sympathetic, could not correct many of the problems - no wi-fi in entire wing of hotel, etc. The expected renovations sounded wonderful but at the present time the place showed many signs of deferred maintenance. Advice: Wait until 2010 to stay there.

Nice run of the mill

Overall, good experience. Staff were great, rooms clean and comfortable. I believe they claim to have "balconies", but the sliding door is constrained to 4 inches of travel. For the money, it was a nice stay!

Great location!!

The room was comfortable and the staff was very friendly. I stayed for 3 days and don't have any complaints. Its definitely worth the money and what you could expect out of a Holiday Inn.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The corner area has a ton of cute resturants and good places to get a beer. The downtown mall is also a good place to go. Both are about a $10 cab ride from the hotel
