My daughter and I stayed here while visiting the campus for a tour and open house. The staff was very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. The location was perfect for campus and town touring. We were there during a busy weekend in March and had no problem parking along the street in front of the hotel. I chose this hotel after... More

This was my wife and my first stay at the Darden Inn. We have been visiting the Charlottesville area for many years and always stayed at one of the standard hotels in the area. A colleague of mine who is a UVA alum recommended Darden to me recently so we booked two nights the end of March as our base... More

I was in Cville for a work event and most of the local hotels were charging $250/night; I work for a non-profit and we are careful with our travel budget. The Inn at Darden was an easy quick drive from the Downtown Mall and less than half the price ($116/night)! I had a great stay - the staff was very... More

The Inn at Darden isn't a resort, but it is a very good choice if you're visiting UVA, the Darden Graduate School of Business, or want to be within a few minutes of historic Charlottesville. Room was comfortable and clean, well-equipped with a refrigerator, cable TV, safe, and queen bed. Free parking in the Darden garage was easy, although not... More

The Inn at Darden is my preferred accommodation when visiting UVA, because it is convenient, comfortable, and economical. The only drawback is that most parking is in a garage about 50 yards away which is only a problem in bad weather.

We spent the weekend at The Inn at Darden and greatly enjoyed our stay. The staff were particularly helpful with directing us around campus and to local places of interest. The location was perfect for visiting Darden to interview, as I only had to walk across the street. We found the rooms to be very nice and would stay here... More

The Darden Inn is very comfortable and nicely placed on the UVA campus right next to the Darden School. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I was staying as a guest of the school and when my flight was canceled the Inn very graciously extended my stay gratis. Really great service!
