I visit Charlottesville often but had never stayed at the Inn at Darden. The reason is that we usually travel as a family (two adults, two kids) and the Inn didn't show up on our searches. It is designed as housing for Darden's executive education program, so the assumption is that rooms will have a single occupant. As a result...

The accommodations are simple and clean. And the prices are quite reasonable. The location is wonderful if you need to be on or near the University of Virginia campus. There appeared to be a pub undergoing renovations while we were visiting. Because that was closed, there was no food available on the property. The rooms have refrigerators so it's worth...

Stayed one night on the way to Florida. The hotel was on the university campus, so much nicer venue than the usual chain hotels. The staff was gracious & helpful, especially Jo at the front desk. Parking garage on site was great since we hit a storm. Rooms were older but well maintained. Would definitely stay here again. Try the...

Comfortable accommodations. Very Helpful staff. Especially the maids and front desk. A little confusing since it is built on a hill so depending on which door you come in is on either first floor, second floor or third floor. Easy access to multiple locations.

The Inn at Darden is a perfectly adequate spot to stay when visiting the University of Virginia. Located on the North Grounds at the graduate business school, it is very convenient to the Law School, John Paul Jones arena, and to the Barracks Shopping Area. The main campus is a very short drive or a longer walk. The rooms are...

Although it is difficult to find in the dark when coming in late, it is one of the most relaxing places to stay as it is extremely quiet and very comfortable. Its location on the UVA Campus makes it the perfect spot if you have business in Charlottesville. It is in a perfect location for walking to the JPJ (basketball...

I stayed here for a few nights given activities at Darden, and the location can't be beat. The parking is terrific (and free!), and everything was clean. The facilities are a bit old though - the bathroom isn't modern, and the ventilation in the room was particularly poor ... I was always either too hot or too cold. There are...

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...

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...
