Nicer than the average Holiday Inn

It was clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating, and the room was large and had a refrigerator and microwave which was a plus. Checkout was fast and easy.

Not impressed

Visited UVA to drop my daughter off for college. Great location, clean, however the ac unit was loud and there was no heavy drapes to block out the street lights at night. Will not stay again.

Holiday Inn Charlottesville

Went there to visit UVa and wanted a basic hotel to sleep and shower. It was clean and neat - no frills. If you need a quick pit stop this is the place. Staff was friendly as well.

Delivered the goods

As a business tvlr, my time is at a premium. Hotel staff was routinely unavailable on several times I stopped by with questions. That said, the property was very clean and the room an excellent value so I was able to unwind.

Business trip

The hotel is listed as a "university area hotel," but it is a couple miles (about 10min) from the university up busy Rt 29. There are several other hotels actually closer to UVA and the downtown area, if needed. The staff was very attentive and courteous and the room was comfortable. I was in town on a house-hunting trip of approximately a week, so a fridge and/or microwave in the room would have been appreciated (room only had a coffee maker). Access to a fitness center was important to me, and the hotel had a small exercise room with 2 treadmills, a stair stepper, and a recumbent bike. All-in-all, it was a good experience and I would stay here again (although maybe elsewhere if I really needed to be "close" to UVA).

While there is one restaurant in the hotel, the hotel is situated on Rt29, with a variety of dining options within a short drive in either direction.
