We slept very soundly in these clean and quiet rooms! We loved the east side with the extra glass protection! The beds were soft and comfortable. We used the fitness center, which was clean and had 2 treadmills, 2 ellipticals, and various weights. The breakfast with the fresh waffle makers was delicious. The location to the school couldn't have been better! I left a pair of glasses at the hotel and the general manager, Almira, went over and above to ship them out to CA for the cheapest rate she could find me. A really lovely stay at an affordably priced inn!!

As hotels go, one can usually say you get what you pay for but the Cavalier Inn definitely provides MORE than what I expected given the very reasonable nightly rate. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable and--except for one recent Friday night when the hotel was booked solid due to a college basketball game with a rival school and so the noise level at the hotel reflected the excitement (read: it was LOUD)--the only word of caution I would offer is to ask to stay on the WEST side of the hotel. For some reason the hotel glass-enclosed the walkway outside the rooms on the east side which translates into a very well insulated (over-heated) room. After moving to the west side I was much more comfortable! :-) I am definitely staying here again.

I thought the hotel would be located on campus. It was located close to campus on a main street but not what I was thinking when it said on campus. Also, it is a motel, not a hotel, in other words, you have to go outside to get to your room.

I had a great stay here while my son was attending orientation at UVA. The hotel is simple but clean and well run. I had a great night's sleep. Sadly, I just heard it is closing and being toen down this May.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled solo

Super convenient location; very affordable; clean; pleasant staff. But walls are paper-thin --if anyone is in the room next to you you will be able to hear everything they say. I bought ear plugs! Uncomfortable beds. Ok for a night if you're on a budget.
