Relax at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Charlottesville, Virginia, a leafy college town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In no time you’ll be touring the stately home of Thomas Jefferson or sampling one of the boutique wines in a pastoral vineyard along the Monticello Wine Trail.
This pretty foothills hamlet is now a cosmopolitan city set against the scenic backdrop of moss-backed mountains. Our Charlottesville hotels are close to the historic sites of colonial days, when Thomas Jefferson chose a nearby hilltop to build his neoclassical home. Visit Jefferson’s estate at Monticello and admire the octagonal dome, the cooling “Venetian Porches” and the original furnishings. Head back into town to see another of Jefferson’s pet projects: the University of Virginia. The Charlottesville campus has Jeffersonian touches throughout, with classical pavilions, a Pantheon-like rotunda, and rolling lawns—all plotted out by Jefferson himself when he was 73 years old. Campus tours and admission to the Rotunda are free.
The area around the UVA campus is close to our Charlottesville hotels and a good place to find a hearty meal at student-budget prices. Elliewood Avenue, just off campus, is lined with many local favorite restaurants and nightlife. Immerse yourself in colonial ambience when you dine at Michie Tavern, a landmark tavern near our hotels in Charlottesville that dates from 1784. Set in a historic gristmill just a half-mile from Monticello, the tavern features waitstaff in crisp colonial attire and a Southern buffet groaning with old-fashioned biscuits, fried chicken and black-eyed peas.

Already provided response to this problem. I advised of these situations, i.e., no need for keycard to access motel into sleeping areas, and construction vehicles had persons sitting inside vehicles.[More]
A/C did not work properly. Advised staff, but noticed was not rectified, nor were the security issues as noted on previous stays. As in to days society security is a mainstay situation. Otherwise, had a pleasant stay as the view is grand, and the motel personnel could not have been more courteous. Food must be heated more as this could cause some type of food poisoning. Rooms were excellent, except toilet kept running. Will definitely stay again in future. However, must insist you address and take action on the security issues. [Less]

We wanted a close location for our visit to Monticello and other nearby historical sites. The Holiday Inn was literally a five minute drive to where we wanted to go. The staff was very friendly and[More]
personable - no matter what part of the hotel you were in, whether it be front desk, housekeeping or the restaurant. Our room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom was roomy and appeared updated compared to other places we have stayed. The large shower and great water pressure were a definite plus!! Once in our room, we never heard any noise from the hallway at all -- which is a rarity. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting the Charlottesville/Monticello area. [Less]
