The boys were a little slow moving without the energetic Jennie to motivate for the flight from Jacksonville to Charlottesville via Charlotte. Excuses were put down to telephone calls coming through from Australia at 2.30 am and 3.00 am. Luckily a porter popped up at the airport rental car return loaded all our baggage on a trolley and said follow …
... no fuss. Even the security people are joke steers. Dad and I are sitting and waiting, using our iPads like we know. What we are doing . There are a few things I still can't figure out on this . Wondering when I send this if I am sending double copies?... Next communication will be from the hotel. Love. ...
By this time tomorrow we will be in the Air flying off to FT. Lauderdale. I am still playing with this damn blog thingy to see if it will actually work. IF it does't then I'll do something simple like just write drafts on my email and then send the emails later. I just thought a blog would be fun. Maybe not. Just added a picture of ...
"It was awkward. It was like I've got to call Sarah and see you at 5.15pm!" Kasper rightly calling me out. Didn't realise until it was said. "She's one to take advice from?!" Sarah and her Lee situation despite her encouragement to the Kasper. Needed this push in that direction "Can I have a hug" it happened twice. That as a bit awkward tbh ...
... was exactly what I needed. Tom had volunteered to work at a polling station for the election. The following day Tom and I headed to Luray Cavens, about 90 minutes drive from Charlottesville. It has been a long time since I've been in a Cave system and this was a pretty amazing system. Fortunately, for us tourists, when this cave system was discovered it was preserved by the founders (see photos and commentary). That afternoon we headed to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Charlottesville
Great Hotel, Fantastic Service
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights - the staff was absolutely fantastic, the rooms are clean and very comfortable, and they will go out of their way to make your stay as good as possible. This isn't right downtown, but a very short trip to the University and the Historic downtown Mall. I strongly recommend this hotel if you are looking for an affordable, comfortable and convenient place to stay.
An absolute pleasure!
Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfy beds, good-sized pool, and warm cookies everyday at 4pm! Couldn't ask for anything more.
If you're looking for a place to stay in Charlottesville, this is it! Located on a major highway with lots of shopping, and a short drive to UVA and the Downtown District.
I know I sound like a commercial, but my family and I had a great stay.
It was thanks to Trip Advisor that I found this place, so I wanted to thank others for their comments.
Great place to stay in Charlottesville
We stayed for 3 nights in Feb. 2006. The hotel location was excellent, not downtown but right off 29N, where most of the action is. The room was fairly recently renovated,very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We paid $76 which was a bargain, hot chocalate chip cookies, fresh fruit, and great coffee available all afternoon. The included buffet breakfast breakfast was the best I've ever seen in a hotel like this. Nice hot entrees, and everything else you can imagine. The most impressive thing were the 2 lovely ladies that continually kept everything replenished. The hotel was sold out 2 of the 3 nights with kids in town for a swim meet, and the staff did a great job keeping up with everything.
We had stayed at several Hampton Inns on our trip of over 3 weeks and this was by far the best. Staff were polite, friendly and very helpful. Computer with internet in the lobby along with beverages, cookies and fruit. Breakfast was a better than average continental and each day there is a different hot item. Being a weekday there were many business travelers and it was quiet, no slamming doors that are too often the rule these days. A little tricky to find off the highway as it is in a shopping plaza.
I stayed here on business for four nights and was thoroughly impressed with the Hampton Inn. The staff is very hospitable.
We stayed one night in this hotel and it was very nice. The previous night we had a reservation down the road but when I saw where Hampton was located (right in the middle of shopping center) I immediately booked the room there for the next day to stay. The front desk clerk was very nice! Our room was nice, the air conditioning worked great (two other hotels we stayed in prior had crappy air conditioning systems which didnt blow out very cool air, so my husband was very happy to finally have a nice cool room). Room was clean had a nice bathroom with a curved shower stall. In the lobby, I was very happy to see they had a 24 hour coffee bar with some other items & drinks. At 4:00 p.m. they put out fresh hot oatmeal cookies. For breakfast they had a very nice continental breakfast, alot nicer than some of them I have been too, it actually also had 2 hot items, bagels, muffins, donuts, juices, etc... This hotel was right next to some restaurants. The shopping was great and I didnt have to feel guilty for making my husband shop with me, he was able to sit in the room and watch t.v. while I did a bit of shopping, it was great!!! The pool was also nicely heated. We also found a great restaurant in the shopping center (Sam Maverick) which had a nice atmosphere and menu we actually ate there two days in a row. It was also within walking distance. If you like Chili's they were located there also, along with a foodstore, Fashion Bug, Marshalls, Big Lots, and a bunch of other nice little stores. For the person who like to have stores and convenience around them this is the hotel for you!
This hotel is nice and clean. The breakfast was plentiful. There are nicer areas than this one (it is in the middle of a shopping mall rather than set off), but it was a nice hotel to visit, and we didn't have any problems.
I am a frequent business traveler & recently attended a 2 week course at the JAG school. I would not recommend this hotel for more than 1 night. The lobby was nice but the rooms were not as nice as rooms at other Hampton Inns I have visited. The rooms are very small & have no closets - what you get instead is a very small armoire & a small dresser that is as wide as the 19 inch TV that sits on top of it. Good location, though. It's adjacent to a shopping center parking lot & you can use the Gold's Gym in that parking lot. After 2 days I moved to the English Inn which has suites & member benefits at the ACAC gym - which is an outstanding gym - probably one of the best gyms I've ever visited.
Decent hotel for people passing through or visiting Charlottesville.
Good location near a lot of restaurants and the interstate. Hotel is decent, pretty clean, good breakfast, nice pool. Room itself was clean but pretty basic. Basic hotel but nice, for most the people who stay there it should meet their needs. I'd stay there again if I was in area.
