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

I visited Charlottesville for less than 24 hours, and I'm incredibly happy that I decided to stay here. The Inn at Darden has a great location, is clean and comfortable, and employs a wonderful staff. I needed to print something at a late hour the night before an interview, but was having problems with one of the Inn's computers. One... More

Stayed overnight for the Duke/UVA basketball game this winter. Excellent location, friendly staff and incredibly comfortable. Great price too. It's a hidden gem right on UVA's campus. highly recommend this for anyone traveling to Charlottesville.

Chose Inn at Darden due to its location on the North Grounds of the University of Virginia, near John Paul Jones Arena. After parking in the garage we were free to walk to Barracks Road restaurants and a basketball game. Did not have time to visit the North Grounds Recreation Center. While the $150/night price is not a bargain, the... More

Location location location : what a great location on the grounds of the University of Virginia. My husband and I chose Darden for its proximity to John Paul Jones Arena, a very easy walk. Parking was easy. Access to North Grounds Recreation Center across the street was an unexpected bonus for a relaxing swim to end the day. The rooms... More

The Inn at Darden holds itself as a top rated hotel. However, the Registration is in the Gate house which is not conspicuous or well lighted. We missed it and had a very hard time finding it to register. The Inn does not have in house food service or room service. No parking at the Inn except at the University... More

Short of staying on the Lawn, I think this is the best all around place to stay in Charlottesville. The rooms are modern, tastefully decorated and clean with lots of space. It is most convenient to the business school and the law school, but the historic parts of "Mr. Jefferson's academically village" is a short ride away.

It starts at the front desk where courteous and helpful staff, especially Jo Hetrick, make me feel welcome, continues to the clean and comfortable room and ends in the on-site Pub with it's friendly staff and comfortable feel. I always stay at the Inn at Darden when I am in Charlottesville
