Three friends and I visited Charlottesville for one night for a short birthday weekend/getaway trip. We stayed in one room with two double beds which was a little tight for four, but great for one night. The beds and sheets were comfortable, the room was quiet, and we had no complaints or issues with the shower/bathroom. The location was great... More

The worst experience I have ever had.. We stayed in the hotel for a month (as a group), we all got stolen by the cleaning ladies or maybe another staff member. My friend got stolen $1000, I left my silver bracelet in the hotel for few hours and it disappeared. Moreover, the rooms are super NOT clean, actually dirty, the... More

I traveled to Charlottesville for a wine tasting weekend and due to the home football game, this was one of the only hotels with enough rooms for a party of 9. While it is conveniently located to walk to UVA's campus and the amenities on the Corner, that is about all that the hotel has going for it. The beds... More

We stayed at The Cavalier Inn this past weekend and I was incredibly disappointed with the quality of our stay. Not only were the rooms very run down, the bed was INCREDIBLY uncomfortable, the air unit sounds like an 18-wheeler starting in your bedroom and the walls are paper thin. We chose this hotel mainly because it was pet-friendly -... More

I got a bargain price on this room thru another hotel website. It is a 60s-70s style motel with some upgrades to make it more esthetically appealing in the 21st century. Check in was efficient but rather impersonal and curt. The rooms on the west side open onto an open air balcony while the rooms on the east open onto... More

I made reservations at this hotel for a family event based on them blocking out rooms. This hotel is very outdated and had rooms that open to the outside balconies. So safety can be a big concern.
