For this class of hotel, I thought it was very good! Great location, right across street from UVA campus and near lots of restaurants and shops. Hotel was being renovated, but room was clean and quiet, and no questionable people hanging around, so we felt quite safe.

I requested 2 rooms next to each other thru Booking.com. when we arrived they had us on different floors. The manager was more then helpful to get it sorted out. So if you book thru 3rd party make sure you call The hotel for any special requests. The free breakfast was good. A lot of places to eat right down...

While the hotel was cheap and convenient to a training I attended for work, I woke up after a one-night stay with several bed bug bites. I contacted management, not to request a refund (though I should have), just to inform them what happened and the room I stayed in (29) should be treated. Got no response. Clearly return customers...

Booked a room, through Orbitz. Needed to cancel when event was cancelled. The hotel's posted cancel policy allows cancellation up to 4pm on arrival day, without penalty, If reservation not cancelled, first night will be charged. Started calling at 10am, and was unable to get an answer. Instead, put on auto hold for several minutes then it hung up. Tried...

Just stopped one night there while crossing Virginia. Classical motel, however easy to reach and nicely located close to University (you may reach UVA by foot). Rooms somewhat oldish, but clean and operational (just a problem with the door very difficult to open). Parking places available. Good breakfast.

We return to the Charlottesville Budget Inn whenever we're in town and recommend it for its location close to downtown and the University and for its very helpful staff. The housekeeping team is both efficient and friendly as are the people at front desk. The beds are very comfortable. The other furnishings are basic, but, for us, everything we need...

I made arrangements a month in advance for a band playing at our son's evening wedding reception in Charlottesville to stay at the hotel at our expense. I then stopped by the morning of the wedding to make sure all was ready for their arrival. When the band arrived, the person at the desk knew nothing about it and refused...

this is a very small hotel on the edge of U of VA. So close that a practice field was out our back window. Only problem we had was the marching band practicing 2-3 hours when we first arrived. Made it difficult to nap. Thankfully that stopped by the time we got back from dinner. Room was smaller but adequate...

Charlottesville hotel prices have been rising steadily over the past few years and it is nice to find a small hotel which does not make a hole in your wallet. This is it. Much nicer than expected I paid for 3 nights what it would have cost me for one elsewhere in town. Rooms were basic but clean. Free internet...
