  • I discovered another aspect of Charlottesville and was very pleased about that. A huge difference from a standard hotel. I appreciated the quietness. In Summer it must be very nice to sit in the garden…
  • In general, the room was kind of tired. Wallpaper peeling, dated furnishings, etc. Rooms could definitely be refreshed.
  • Upon intial arrival, it was a little tricky finding the entrance to Building 5 from the parking lot. This will be my "go to" hotel whenever I'm staying in Charlottesville. It was almost like being a student…

  • Wonderful staff at registration desk. So accommodating, helpful and thorough. Allowed us to check in a bit early which was fantastic since it had been a long drive through snow. Free parking was a bonus.…
