I've tried a variety of lodging experiences in Charlottesville over the last two years. A swell B&B, a swank downtown chain hotel, and of course the UVA rite de passage, the Cavalier Inn. Fortunately, I heard about the Inn at Darden. I am their customer. The Darden is clean, comfortable, and fairly priced. A special request at breakfast was generously... More

I attended a week long class at the nearby Judge Advocate Generals school and the Inn at Darden was really convenient because I could walk to class. Parking is limited at the JAG school and the Inn offers free parking. With the free parking, I could drive to various restaurants in the area and have a space when I returned.... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Inn for two weeks of Executive training and the experience was wonderful. The entry ways are secure and everything from the common areas to the individual room was well maintained and very clean. It is clear that staff understands the importance of details because this was a five star experience. Close to... More

While attending orientation for our son at UVA, we stayed overnight at the Inn at Darden. It's a very nice option close to campus with a reasonable price for Charlottesville. I would love to stay there with our daughter while visiting our son, but it seems that there are only accommodations for two. The location is very nice and the... More

We went to C'ville to celebrate a friend's birthday. The Inn was @midway between her house and the Corner, so it fit the bill logistically. After an arduous explanation of how to get to our room everything went well. (Wouldn't it be easier to say "Go to the first whie door on the right?") Great Staff; snacks and Continental breakfast...
