Great Place-Great Location

4.6 on August 23, 2014

My husband and I stayed here to break up our drive after dropping our daughter off for college in North Carolina. We loved the Charlottesville area but wanted to get away from the cookie cutter hotels we had been staying in. The room was gorgeous and very clean. The staff was friendly and attentive. They had a lovely social hour with wine and cheese late afternoon and several guests seemed to be enjoying this on the patio. It was all delicious and very well done. The downtown area is full of great boutiques, places to dine and great little pubs and within easy walking distance. We enjoyed a nice evening out and afterwards came back to sit on the porch with a bottle of wine. There was a thunderstorm the evening we were there so it was great to just sit and watch the rain with a glass of wine in hand. We had coffee the next morning and even though there was a nice breakfast offered we aren't big breakfast fans and opted for lunch in town instead. We are planning on staying here again after we visit our daughter for fall break and look forward to seeing Charlottesville in the fall!

My fiance and I stayed here during a visit for cville. The location is very convenient. It is just a few minute walk to the downtown mall as well as the stop for the free trolley. The room was clean & beautiful and the AC worked perfectly (mid-July, 90 F+ temps outside). The price was competitive with the Omni Hotel downtown, but the personal touches and unique rooms make the South Street Inn a much better value. They very kindly provided both vegetarian and gluten free breakfast options for me and my fiance. We can't wait to return to cville and stay here!

Gracious Hospitality and delicious cookies!

We loved our visit to South Street! The hosts were wonderful - gave great info on places to go and things to see. We had breakfast on the wrap-around porch each morning ... it was a walk to explore downtown Charlottesville - very convenient! We will be back South Street - thank you!

Average place, loud trains, located downtown

3.0 on March 14, 2014

As a heads-up, the train vibrates the entire house, not just the room closest to the tracks. The rumbling woke me up and the screeching from the wheels woke my wife up. The pictures are somewhat deceiving as the upkeep of the rooms and the layout was not what we expected. Our initial service was great, and having a person on premises all evening is nice, but when I went to check-out I had to wait a long time. Perhaps this could be solved with a bell being put on the desk. The absolute best part about this B&B is its location. While the trip was not as plush/romantic as I intended, it really helped that we were within walking distance to so many things. There are many places to choose from in Charlottesville so I do not anticipate coming back.

Lovely and romantic

My boyfriend and I stayed here over a recent weekend. What a lovely and hospitable place! Some of the furniture in our room (#18) was rustic at best, but nothing a little makeover and some WD-40 couldn't fix. We were pleasantly surprised with the room; given its description of "compact" on the Inn's website, I had expected the room to be much smaller. The wine and cheese reception was very nice and provided a welcome snack after a long day of sightseeing! The fresh cookies were fantastic too. Perfect location with easy access to the downtown pedestrian mall, lots of restaurants and the free shuttle to the university campus. Thanks for a wonderful stay! Maggie

Warm & Cozy

My wife and I stayed there for three nights on the recommendation of a colleague. Great breakfast of cakes, bread, yogurt, fruit and coffee/tea/juice. Great wine and cheese happy hour every night. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Book early to get a good room, however. We booked last minute and ended up in a basement room with little light or room, let alone fireplace and/or hot tub.

Good value and location

3.6 on August 31, 2013

We enjoyed our stay. Rooms are older but comfortable. The cookies, fresh fruit bowl and wine and cheese are great additions. The location is just a block from downtown mall with shops and restaurants and the pavilion so lots to do in walking distance. Staff is friendly and helpful and I loved the continental breakfast with granola, Greek yoghurt, fruits, brads and fresh squeezed oj.

What a fun time!

My wife and I escaped for the weekend of Aug 22 and loved our stay. All the reasons for staying at an Inn and not a hotel were here. A fun staff that allowed us to be curious and ask questions. They gave great recommendations for things to do. I would definitely come back again. Ask for the rooms with the sitting rooms. Room 9 was a good one. Really good staff!

We have stayed in Bed and Breakfast Inns around the the country and in the UK. We were disappointed for several reasons. The most important is the breakfast. We have always been served a full breakfast at a dining table. The inn serves a cold buffet of pastries, cereal, fruits in a basket and yogurt; less than a Holiday Inn buffet. The same pastry was served the next morning, stale. We were moved from our first room because of a plumbing issue. The rooms are adequate, but need a paint job. The ambiance was muted because the television is mounted to the wall and the wires hang down in full view. The furniture may be antique but is not functional. The armoire doors were in bad repair and the dresser drawers were a struggle to open. We will not visit again.
