Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NoMealDeal Old and musty smelling
The staff was very helpful and freindly. The hallways and room were musty smelling. To walk on the floor with bare feet felt like the carpet had been cleaned with dirty water and still damp, had to wash feet before going to bed. I walked down the street to eat dinner because I refuse to eat in the bar area. If I am going to have a meal I want a better atmosphere and service. I stayed here last year and wrote the property up and saw no improvements.

Not an overly attractive property or exceptional area, but the quality of the staff, the cost and the proximity to UVA more than made up for it. I got exactly what I wanted in the price range I was looking for.

The room was neat and tidy, but the mattress was way worn! It had an obvious lean and indenture and was very uncomfortable. The staff was very courteous and accommodating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Merry24 Room okay, toilet would not work in a.m.
We were told our charge would be a certain amount, but was different when we received the statement. At the time of checkout amount was changed to what we were originally quoted.
Had a problem with the toilet at about 4:00 a.m. The handle broke and we were unable to flush the toilet. We were inconvenienced by having to go downstairs to use the bathroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fritzavis (+) and (-) thoughts
Newly and nicely renovated with comfortable room and excellent room service evening dinner. Online reservations have become almost indecipherable resulting in missed opportunity to give excellent rating. Assigned room was farthest from desk it could be, resulting in a long walk after tiring drive and wife using cane for mobility problems. Clerk might have recognized the problem to avoid our discomfort, but could only offer apologies after the fact. Had thought reservation had asked for room close to elevator, but the myriad choices facing an on-line search caused my confusion as did a supposed order to include breakfast. The staff were very helpful in resolving the latter issue, but we had decided to not leave the room in the evening because of the long walk it would have required back to the dining room...therefore the need for room service. This was very good, providing good hot food in huge portions. I can recommend this motel to others, but be sure your ducks are in a row if you're making an on-line reservation. A lot of grief will be avoided knowing you've made the choices you want to haappen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Totally excellent place to stay in Charlottesville.
Have stayed at the Holiday Inn University many times, over many years, and have found every experience to be excellent. The hotel is kept in very immaculate condition - sleeping rooms, lobby, restaurant & bar, and swimming pool - which is a credit to housekeeping manager Poni, and her staff. The reception at the front desk is absolutely the best hospitality and service from all on duty there on every visit, including (on this visit) from Cheryl, Anna, Ila, and Mike; and Reggie, too, even though we didn't use his valet service. The front lobby staff all welcome you warmly, and respond to every need in a friendly and helpful manner. The same holds true for the good hospitality of Casey and Veronica in the hotel restaurant, and Theresa and Clifton in the hotel bar.
Looking forward to many more of the same good experiences at this very nice property, with particular credit given to the very fine staff!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carlaa Very comfy bed but no free breakfast!
The Holiday Inn in Charlottesville is conveniently located next to a shopping center and great Indian restaurant, Milan. We were able to walk from the hotel to the shopping center, which is kind of unusual in a suburb like Charlottesville where you have to drive everywhere.
I slept so well! The bed was very comfortable, and the pool was nice.
Cons: No hot tub, breakfast was not free

I have stayed at this hotel more than a dozen times in the last 2-3 years. It's like walking into "Cheers", everybody knows my name. I am treated with respect and kindness and even family-like when I needed it. never a bad night; comfortable,convenient and very reasonable. Will continue to stay at HI Emmett St, Charlottesville when ever I am in town. Five stars without question.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Asuqd Very clean, friendly staff, highly recommended
Very nice hotel situated in the heart of Charlottesville. Very busy intersection to get in and out of hotel parking lot but it was surprisingly easy. Very clean rooms, one of the most friendly front desk check ins I've ever encountered. very nice staff. Breakfast service was on time but quality of food was not what I expected.. it could be a lot better overall. but particularly the toast wasn't even toasted. and the food was a bit bland. (eggs, toast, usual fare). Room was exceptionally clean air system worked great.. but the curtains were cut to accommodate the air system and allowed light to shine in the room regardless of curtain coverage. overall a wonderful experience and a good value. I will come back again for sure.

The service was extremely slow and the food was not only slightly warm.
We would stay there again, but I doubt very much if we would dine there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SFM207 Horrible food, ok service.
During my business travels I try to stay in an IHG property as much as possible because of the positive experiences I have had with this brand. This property was very disappointing. The food, in particular, was terrible.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by won't stay again Should have stayed elsewhere
We stayed here based on its accessibility to UVA. The staff who checked us in were not friendly and were even rude when I asked why I was not given the rate that I had been told on the phone.
The reservation agent with Holiday Inn told me that my credit card would not be charged until I checked in. The front desk agent that I called prior to arrival confirmed that. However, my card was charged prior to arrival, and when I was trying to determine why, the agent was rude, sighing heavily and acting like I was a terrible imposition.
The room was tidy, though not particularly clean. The TV remote didn't work correctly, and we were not given new drinking or coffee cups each of the three days.

The location was convenient to where I was working. The hotel could use some renovation, the lobby looks fine, but the rooms could use some work, the TV channels do not have the High Definition quality. The cost of such a room was higher then I would normally pay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jpm0703 OK overall
Although our room was clean, the hallway looked like what one would see back in the 1980's. The heater runs really loud making it hard to fall asleep despite the firm mattress.
The check-in and check-out experiences could've been better. Shannon's tone with us was aloof as he first told us our room wasn't ready, then checked again only to find out our room was ready. He was also annoyed with me when I asked for our receipt upon check out.
To end on a positive note, the housekeeping staff greeted us as we headed to our room. Casey (our server during breakfast) was also really friendly to us, and our breakfast was really good.

Wonderful staff, they go out of their way to make sure everything is more than satisfactory. I am a cancer patient at UVA, so I stay at this location frequently. The staff usually give me the same room as I cannot walk very far. I cannot say enough about how great the staff are.

My family has stayed at this location numerous times while family member receives cancer treatment at nearby cancer center... what loving staff, considerate, compassionate and dedicated to ones needs... As a business executive I have traveled for years and spent 5 days a week in hotels... never during all this time did I meet a more caring and dedicated staff that weren't just employees but loving human beings and my experience have been very pleasing in the past!.....What a blessing to cross paths with these folks.....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbara50+ Great night sleep and friendly service
While visiting Charlottesville, we stayed at the Holiday Inn. It was memorable because we had an exceptional night sleep for the two nights there. The pillows and bed were so comfortable that my husband and I were able to drift into sleep quickly and awake the next morning well rested. Also the staff was very friendly and helpful with questions we asked.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greyRN best staff you can find
I have stayed at this property several times over the last three years and can only compliment your staff. they remember me not only by name, but by voice when I call to make a reservation. They ask about my husband, a patient at UVA and attempt to care for me; they ask how I slept, make sure I am eating and just say hello and welcome me warmly each time I walk thru the door. Bravo for a wonderful, caring and knowledgeble staff.
