There simply are no negatives....Note: You only have the... 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.

Nice clothes an hotel. Rooms are nice sized, have free hi-speed internet, mini-fridge and microwave.. Plenty of parking in an underground garage but at one end of the building I you plan on parking inn he garage, ask for a room on a high floor (3 or 4) and a high number(twenties or thirties)

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!

I had a medical conference at the Darden Business School and the Inn at Darden was perfectly situated for my short commute to the conference. Room had excellent amenities without being over the top.

My son and I traveled to Charlottesville to visit one of his friends, and decided to stay overnight at the last minute. I went online and saw the good reviews for the Inn at Darden, and the reasonable price, so went ahead and booked a room. It seemed sort of strange to be staying at an "Inn" on the business... More
