Easy to find. Lovely big room with 2 queen beds, fridge, microwave. Like having two chairs to sit at table. Very helpful check -in staff - gave us list of restaurants, how to get there and which ones they would choose.

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Monticello Charlottesville
We were extremely pleased with the overall experience at this Comfort Inn. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, making us feel comfortable. The room was pleasant and clean, and the pool area was well maintained. The continental breakfast was very good. The price was reasonable. We would definitely return here if we visit the Charlottesville area again.
Nice Place to Stay
The Comfort Inn - Montecello was a clean and comfortable motel with a friendly staff. The motel is located on the outskirts of Charlottesville, VA within a 5 mile drive of the Thomas Jefferson home. The staff said this motel was a Ramada until early in 2005 when the property was completely renovated and changed to Comfort Inn. The room was clean and quite ... new carpet, bedding, furniture and bathroom fixtures made this older inn seem like a new facility. They have a standard but well stocked breakfast, a large/clean pool and a small exercise room with 3 pieces of stationary equipment. I stayed here in July 2005 and would stay here again.
Comfort Inn Monticello-great staff
I just spent 3 nights at the Comfort Inn Monticello in Charlottesville, VA. I must say, every single staff member I encountered went out of their way to help me. If I didn't need help, they were just all out pleasant and friendly.
I travel almost every week for work or pleasure and it gets tiring at times. It was wonderful to have such nice people taking care of me this weekend.
The hotel was previously a Ramada and they have done some remodeling. It was clean and I felt safe. If you're in the area, it's a must stay hotel!!!
Convenient but steep
It was okay. The room was okay sized and clean enough, but it was musty smelling. The continential breakfast was fine. And it was very close to Monticello (five minutes) and easy to find off the interstate. The front desk tried to be helpful, although our wake up call never came. This was the first night of a week long trip and the price was steeper than any others, including a much nicer oceanfront.
When our travel plans took an unexpected turn, my mother and I had to make last minute hotel reservations in Charlottesville, VA. After a few minutes of flustered calls to various hotels, we found availibilty at the "Comfort Inn Monticello". As we drove up to the hotel (conviently located near a freeway, but tucked away enough for the feeling of "seclusion".) its clean appearence reassured us that we had made the right choice. The lady at the front desk was extremely polite, and, after learning that we had not yet had dinner, she handed us a list of nearby restaurants. Once we went to our room we were pleasantly surprised to find it clean and well-sized. Unfortunately, I was not so pleased with the bathroom, as the toilet seat was cracked and dirty, and the shower had some hair in it-EWW! Also, the walls are not sound proof, so thumping footsteps and loud voices are easily heard. Still, since we just needed a place to rest, we decided to ignore these issues. In the morning, the continental breakfast was larger than most, and had plenty of tables to sit at.
In the end, I would recommend this hotel as a perfect place to stop if you just need a clean place to stay before getting back on the road. Despite minor issues, if I ever were in the area again, I would have no problem returning.
Handy location, quiet and comfortable !
I stayed here for 1 night and found the room to be very clean and comfortable, with a coffee maker and FREE Internet access. The staff were friendly, and the manager especially helpful trying to resolve my Internet access problem (MY fault, not theirs !). The hotel is right next to I-64, and as it is set away from the connecting access road it is EXTREMELY QUITE and peaceful ! However, it is very isolated so there are no nearby amenities (so you would have to drive for eating-out etc). The rooms are set along long corridors, so access to your vehicle can be lengthy. In short, an ideal stopping place for easy-access, comfort and cleanliness and it was VERY good value !
really nice and clean room, with high speed internet.
you need car. it would be better if the breakfast is not only cereal, donut and bagels everyday.
Great hotel, great staff
We stayed here one night then checked out to do some sight-seeing. At the end of the day, we decided to stay in Charlottesville again and went back to The Ramada. They just had a couple rooms left and the staff went out of their way to get us the kind of room we needed. We would definately stay here again.
The Ramada is the the place to stay in Monticello
My husband and I just stayed at the Ramada Inn last week...It has just been remodeled in the last month and was just great..The people from the manager to all the staff were very helpful in anything we asked them...the continental breakfast was great..and was kept fully filled and very clean..
It was very convenient to all the attractions in Monticello...
We would certainly stay there again if we visited the area again...
Excellent service High Speed Internet was available
We stayed at this hotel for one night in early July. A coupon for this hotel was in a discount hotel guide and we choose this place based on price and the fact that it had a laundry. Unfortunately the hotel didn't take the coupon at face value although this may have been because we didn't meet all the conditions (weekend stay).
The service at this hotel was excellent. We were given a room close to the laundry and the head housekeeper made extra sure that our room was clean. The room was clean and had a high speed internet connection for laptops. We actually had a chance to use the pool which was quite nice and looked after.
The complimentary continental breakfast was better then most.
The only downside was that the laundry dryer was a bit underpowered although we were told that new machines were going to be installed just after we left. The hotel is also fairly remote if you like walking to restaurants. Having said that there are plenty of places to eat only a short drive away.
This hotel also needs to update it's profile on Expedia. There are no photos on Expedia and no mention of the high speed internet service.
All in all I'd recommend this place for it's good service, excellent pool, and high speed internet service.

Foggy cool morning. Needed a bit of detective work to find the guest lounge for the continental breakfast which turned out to be not much. At a motel where there were many signs from not feeding the fish to not drying shoes in the dryer or cooking in the rooms, there was nothing about peanuts being around for those who have allergies. Breakfast …
... Monroe. His home, known as Highland, was much smaller and simpler than Jefferson's, but still impressive for its time, especially the tree-lined approach. It was getting close to Laura's nap time, so I toured the estate while Michelle let Laura run around the grounds in order to tire herself out.
Because Jefferson was a close friend and mentor, Monroe purchased 1,000 acres next to Monticello in 1793 and began construction on Highland. Six years later, he moved ...
We are trying not to throw everything in the truck on Wednesday morning like crazy maniacs. So we started laying things out and making lists Friday night. We have all the pieces of the boat and the canopy and the tent. Laundry is in the works. Who knows how we will get everything to ...
... are a couple of other cafes on the Main St strip but this gets my vote.
There are two other attractions within the Monticello vicinity which are 5th president James Monroe's Ash Lawn-Highlands and Michie Tavern apace that fed and watered tired travellers for hundreds of years. We bought a combined ticket to all three on arrival and figured we’d get to see what we could. It was a little after 1pm and last tours were at 4:10 so we ...

Today, tomorrow, and Wednesday it's my turn to work in the archaeology lab instead of out in the field. It's interesting to clean the artifacts and see the different side of things, but I have to admit I still like it better outside. I'm looking forward to Thursday--and then Friday we have a field trip to Poplar ...
