So my company booked me for a Holiday Inn and I wasn't thrilled, but couldn't change the reservation. I didn't have good luck with Holiday Inns before, but I did with this one. The hotel looks like an Old Holiday Inn from the outside but upon entrance it looks very clean and inviting. Staff are very nice. The room was...

Older Holiday Inn which means large rooms with nice furniture and comfortable beds. Great location. The property was very quiet. The outside entryways had beautiful flowers. Room service food was great for breakfast. For some reason, there are sliding doors to an outside balcony. These may have been used at one time, but now you can only open them 4...

This is my third stay at this property within the past six months. Each time I have had a pleasant night's sleep, thanks to quiet and clean rooms. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful, the lobby is comfortable and inviting, and the indoor pool nicer than I expected, given that it is on a lower floor with no...

The rooms are huge! The bathroom is a nice size. A little grout mildew. Noisy road in front of hotel so probably should ask for the back side. Nice big lobby. Nice bar. Price is a little high but about mid-range for Cville. Better than Cavalier Inn, Quality Inn Emmett St. and Days Inn Emmett St. and Holiday Inn Monticello....

The Holiday Inn was a beautiful place to have our wedding. It was the most amazing day. The staff went above and beyond our expectations. As the bride, I didn't have a care in the world on the actual day because they had everything under control. I was able to hang out with friends and family and take in every...

We checked in after hours and evening desk was not the most cordial but in the morning the staff was very helpful with directions, service. The restaurant meal, included with the room, rivals any neighboring restaurant in both quality and service.

First off, I will say the front desk employees were great...very friendly. Otherwise the hotel is just average. The rooms were clean and comfortable. But there were a few things that didn't work well in the bathroom; faucet, showerhead and a toilet seat that fell each time it was used because of design issues. The pool area was small and...

We arrived in Charlottesville, VA. the evening of 4/5/13. As we pulled into the parking area in front of the hotel, the Desk Attendant came out to greet my wife & I and assisted in unloading our luggage and checked us into the hotel. Our room was ready and we were given discount tickets to the Restaurant & Bar. We...

The Cav Inn down the street overbooked and bumped by reservation made online 2 months prior so they put us into this Holiday Inn. Initially I was very upset because I dont normally stay at Holiday Inns. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the courteous staff, clean and quiet accomodations which greatly contrasted the Cav Inn. All I can say...

This Holiday Inn was a surprise. We were on a school-related educational tour of historic sites. The staff was welcoming--and extraordinarily helpful; I know because I had left all my toiletries at home on the floor BY the suitcase, not IN it. I asked about taxi service and an open drug store (it was after 10:00 pm.). The desk clerk,...
