The front desk personnel are professional and helpful. The company is not putting trainees on duty here. As usual, this was a good stay. The good and the mediocre: Good: 1. Experienced staff who seem to have a knack for the hospitality business. 2. Breakfast: Excellent service and food. The servers are attentive without being annoying. I noticed that they...

Stayed 3 nights. Clean and very spacious room. Comfortable bed with many pillows of different firmness. Close to university, mall and downtown. Short drive from Monticello (but still not bad). Super friendly staff. Theresa in the bar/restaraunt was wonderful! Reasonably priced room service although I didn't order anything. The pool/fitness room were basic, but then again, I didn't use them....

Can't say enough about Charles and his team at the Holiday Inn in Charlottesville. They are ALWAYS consistent, reliable and available and 99% of the time, have everything ready and correct when we arrive. The 1% of the time they don't, they genuinely smile and correct it on the spot! Great people, great service great hotel!

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.
