I stayed at the Inn at Darden while at UVA for a week-long training class. Yes, the accommodations are clean, comfortable, and convenient but the real story is the exceptional service. At a time when finding truly great service is rare, the Inn at Darden is was an unexpected surprise. "Service" is part of their culture and made for an... More

The Inn provides comfortable, clean accommodations with a friendly and helpful staff. The location is great for campus activities. The setting is relaxing but stimulating, I recommend The Inn at Darden for a weekend getaway or educational adventure.

Thanks for your review. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that our staff was recognized for the fine job they do. As you mentioned, we are well situated for UVa visits, but we are also a short drive from many area attractions. We hope to have you back as our guest very soon. More

Excellent choice in Charlottesville and UVA. Location is one of the best elements as the hotel is situated nicely on the UVA campus. Great for business meetings and accommodations. High-quality service.

The Inn at Darden is the perfect spot for a Charlottesville stay. Perfect location with UVa beauty included at no extra charge! The staff is professional and accommodating. The rooms are pleasant and cozy, comfortable and very clean. It will definitely be first on my list of Charlottesville accommodations going forward.

Pleasant stay everyone was helpful.Clean rooms, although could use a little update in decor. Very nice bonus to have guest laundry available. Parking to register/checkin was tight. But otherwise all good. Fyi No breakfasts on weekends.

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

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
