The room was modern, spacious and very clean and quiet. The people who work at the hotel are friendly and accommodating. The lobby and bar are very attractive. The hallways are a little plain, but the important things -- rooms, staff, facilities -- were lovely.

I arrived after midnight and my room was there, no problem. Very quite and clean room, I’ll back soon

Stayed at this hotel when traveling to UVA, 10 minutes away and conveniently located. The staff was very nice, and the room was clean and comfortable.

Centrally located. Convenient since it had a restaurant located in the facility and it was reasonably priced

The hotel gave us the wrong room number and key. We walked into another guests room while they were sleeping. It was embarrassing for us and then. Unfortunately, the hotel seemed unapologetic about the entire matter.

Nice clean hotel and close to a lot of shopping and to downtown Charlottesville.

No amenities what so ever at least less expensive hotels give you breakfast. A total disappointment will never return

The room had been nicely renovated. Nice size room. The view out of our window was a tree line between the hotel and a neighborhood. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Helped me with a easier way to get to my medical appt. Will use them again for future appointments.

Extremely comfortable pillows and bed. Very clean facility. Very cost effective

Hotel resold my room after cancelling first day due to FAA shut down. Hotel is very clean and would stay there again if back in that area.

The waiter knowingly served me the wrong dressing on my salad. I guess he was waiting to see if I remembered what dressing I had ordered.

Pillows were half the size of regular pillows, bed was so wobbly, i was afraid it might collapse! Rooms seemed somewhat clean, lobby was decent

Next to the ice machine and elevator. Noisy environment.

The hotel has been renovated. The double beds are now queen size beds. The rooms have a mini-fridge and a microwave. We noticed water on the carpet in our room which we first thought was from the air conditioner. We notified the staff and a repair person arrived in 1/2 hour. He though the problem was a leak in the patio door (which only opens a crack). But regardless -- they were able to move us to a new room very quickly -- it was great service by the staff!

We'd never been to Charlottesville, and were not familiar with the area or the hotels. We were very pleased with the Holiday Inn on Emmet St. Everyone was very nice, we had everything we needed, and if anything ran out, they provided it immediately. The restaurant in the hotel was nice--we had two meals there--and the staff there was very accommodating, as well.

Staff was super friendly, room was clean and comfortable, only complaint was a housekeeper was knocking on doors early yelling,"HOUSEKEEPING!"

Staff was attentive and the facilities were nice. The pool was COLD and CLOUDY (and had been for several days.. I checked the pool checklist); it didn't look like they were doing anything about it... just marking it on the check sheet. It was nice to have a washer/dryer available during our stay; but we didn't appreciate the creepy guy that was hanging out down there... staff should check the area more often (CCTV?)

Great location, unusually nice rooms. Very clean and enjoyable. Staff was excellent in all areas. One Lady at the front desk who waited on us was most helpful and friendly. Also, the food prices were reasonable also. Couldn't have been better.

Room was comfortable! I especially liked the free unlimited computer access. The in-hotel restaurant where we had the breakfast buffet was very good.

Because it was a last minute booking under different names, we were placed on different floors. Immedaitely the receptionist relocated us so we were only a couple of door apart. It would have been helpful to have a breakfast coupon to use for a 'take with you' breakfast rather than the dining room only. The cleanliness was great. Neither the pool nor exercise room was used - too busy - and they looked rather plain. If I'd had time, I would have visited them.
