Very nice alternative to the English Inn. No breakfast but a nice room at a good rate. We even got a 20% discount from the rate quoted when we booked the room. Good location. We would stay there again.

It is my son's fourth year at UVA and I just a few weeks ago discovered The Inn at Darden. What a pleasant surprise it was to be able to stay right on the grounds of the university and feel like I was part of the pulse of UVA during their annual film festival. The room was clean and simple... More

I had a tolerable 2 night stay here in August 2016. The location is excellent for anyone with business at UVA, or visiting children or friends at UVA, It is a short drive or 10 to 15 minute walk to the Barracks Road shopping center. Furthermore, parking is easy which is saying a lot on the UVA grounds. However, the... More

Coming from a 1971 UVA grad, it's time to give back what I received too often--a "C." This is not a bad Inn, but just "Not great"--average! It certainly has the potential to be a beautiful Inn, but has missed the mark. My wife and I come to C'ville often, and usually stay at the Hampton Inn near the hospital,... More

The location is great for visiting UVA, but I found that they were not great about accommodating any requests. My friend and I were in town for a wedding and would have liked to check in about an hour early in order to change in our room. We were informed that this was not possible and that we would have...

First off I did not know the hotel existed but after finding this little jewel I was in awe. The staff was very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with. Checking in was great because they had our rooms ready at eight o'clock in the morning and the rooms were very clean. Great place and I will be back.

Room and premises were clean, fresh, and well-maintained. Impeccable attention to detail. Pleasant and professional staff. The food at the Abbott Center dining room was outstanding - an excellent variety of fresh and delicious food.
