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.
A welcome landing place
It was thanks to Trip Advisor that I found this place, so I wanted to thank others for their comments.
I came for 3 days to see the VA plantations, and this was a great place to stay- clean, quiet and convenient (although I had to make a u-turn heading south to turn onto India Rd, because I missed the shopping center entrance - they can talk you in if you call).
The staff at the desk and the 'breakfast ladies' were very nice. There's shopping stores and restaurants all around, and a Giant food store in the shopping center just below the hotel that you can walk to to get provisions of any kind. And it is just above the beltway around Charlottesville. It took me ~20 minutes the next morning to get to Monticello.
My only other recommendation is to stop by Barboursville Vineyards, which is ~1/2 hour north of there, off Rt 20 between Charlottesville and the lovely Montpelier- James Madison's estate. It's a lovely place, and they have some very nice varietals.
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.
The Hampton Inn is a Great Find
I stayed here on business for four nights and was thoroughly impressed with the Hampton Inn. The staff is very hospitable.
The room was very clean and appeared to be recently renovated, i.e., new carpet, bedcover, etc. It was well organized and roomy, with a queen bed, sofa bed and a desk.
Newspaper was at the door each morning and the breakfast was the best - coffee, juice, yogurt, cereal, pastries, bagels, and 2 hot items. There was even a "Breakfast to Go" (consisting of water, breakfast bar, apple and muffin), if you didn't have time for breakfast.
The was a free shuttle that took us back and forth from our training site. In addition to wireless capability, the hotel had a computer set up in the lobby permitting free access to guests.
You can't go wrong here - the staff is very warm and make you feel at home.
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.

We drove to the Ridgeline Drive today but we were fogged out. Boo!
We decided to try again tomorrow.
We headed back to camp and did a few more floats down the river (some phone photos were put on FB already). I love doing that!
Then, very suddenly, the skies just opened up and within less than two minutes the berm behind us was washing through our campsite. All of the camp sights were under water in no time!
I have never seen rain this hard this ...
I drove into Charlottesville today to pick up some things and let me tell you...the view along Skyline Drive was A-MAZ-ING!!! I really wish Mike was with me to see this!
When I got back we decided to do a float down the river behind our camp sight. So much fun!!
... was really the best, and trust me we have been to a lot of these tours. Thomas Jefferson owned over 600 slaves and fathered 6 children with one of his slaves, "Sally." We saw the desk where he wrote the Declaration of Independence before Congress did their edits. His gravesite and family graves were also on the property. The slave quarters were on the lower level of the house, along ...
