We stayed at the Darden Inn in late August when school was not in session. It was quiet, secluded, and the landscaping was lovely. A nice change from those chain motels right off the superhighway, surrounded by asphalt and parked cars. The Inn has bright, slightly formal Georgian style decor, and was spotlessly clean, very comfortable (great bed), and the... More

I stayed at the Inn twice, 2 nights back to back due to work we didn't know were going to stay the second night. The first night we checked in well after midnight trying to wrap work up to prep for the next day. Everything was fine considering I only had about 4 hours to sleep and get ready for... More

The Inn primarily caters to students of the business school and their visiting families as well as attendees of the Executive Education program. The property clearly prides itself on providing superb service. The grounds are beautiful and while the rooms may need some updating they are well maintained and very comfortable. The North Grounds fitness center is right across from... More

It was really nice to get back to North Grounds since my last School of Continuing Education and Professional Studies course at Darden School in the late 90's. I'd simply ditto all the nice complements herein. There is a high level of respect around this place, and of character. This would be a great place to bring your high school... More

Our family of three enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the Inn at Darden. Despite many previous visits to C-ville, we weren't even aware this Inn existed until we stumbled upon the name through UVA's website, and we were thrilled with the price for a Saturday night compared to some of the other popular independent hotels. The room itself was... More

The Inn at Darden is busy most times of the year, but during July, there's room at the Inn for family reunion. Recently, my son and daughter plus spouses convened at the Inn at Darden to celebrate my husband's birthday. We loved our rooms and the amenities at the Inn at Darden which made our celebration complete. We each had... More

Front desk staff and customer service is incredibly rude and unaccommodating. I had a change in travel plans on the day I was supposed to stay here but was unable to make my stay. However when I called to inquire about the cancellation policy, they were flat rude. I understand the cancellation policy requires a charge within 48 hours and... More

We stayed here for a wedding that had its reception in the main hall at Darden. Like many other reviewers, we had to wander and ask others in our party the location of check in. The layout of the buildings is confusing, signage is virtually nonexistent and free parking exists a block away. Since the school was not in session,... More
