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

A beautiful location, mature trees,song birds,well manicured lawn,beautiful flowers, peaceful,very clean and comfortable rooms,great location and professional employees. The Inn at Darden is nestled in a wooded area off the main highway. It is very quiet,peaceful and relaxing. A beautiful place to stay.

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

We stayed here to be near the President's houses that we planned to tour. The Inn was awesome. We actually loved it! It was super clean and like living at home instead of a hotel. The lobby had snacks for breakfast and in the evening, plus had fresh fruit out all day and free cold bottles of water in the... More

We just stayed here for a wedding that had its reception at the main hall at Darden. The hotel was very nice and clean and we very much enjoyed our stay. It was very convenient to spots around UVA's campus. Only negatives are that it is extremely difficult to navigate and parking is not ideal. Check in is at the... More

Nothing about this hotel is easy to figure out. The "gatehouse" where you check in is unmarked, leaving guests wandering around asking each other where to check in. The layout of the buildings is confusing and there are no signs telling you where to go. There is no parking next to the hotel. You need to park in a garage... More
