“Great accommodations and staff!”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

I stayed at the Inn at Darden in mid-November. The room was very nice, they provided complimentary bottled water, and the staff was great. The woman working the front desk when I arrived (Alexis) was really helpful and made a great dinner recommendation. The rate is very reasonable compared to other hotels in town. You're not right "downtown" but Charlottesville is small enough that it only takes 5-10 minutes to get downtown. I thought it was convenient.

They provided free parking, wifi (for all of my devices) and continental breakfast which was nice as well. I liked that the toiletry items they provided were natural and paraben-free. Nice to see a hotel take eco-conscious to that level.

I would definitely recommend staying here.

thank you for the kind words regarding our front desk agent Alexis. She is one of our many staff members who help to make our guests feel at home while staying with us.
We are a Virginia Green hotel and strive to be as eco-conscious as we can. Our location is convenient whether you are visiting UVA or coming to Charlottesville to enjoy our historical attractions.
We look forward to your next stay with us.

I have stayed here twice now, and I will stay here again the next time I visit Charlottesville. The Inn at Darden offers nice and exceptionally clean rooms at a very reasonable rate. The front desk was very helpful with information about the University, historical places to visit nearby, and places to eat around Charlottesville.

The folks here truly look after us visitors. John, Jo, and co. were incredibly kind and patient. After a long day's travels to a new place, arriving at the Inn felt like coming home. In addition, its location just can't be beat.

My key card must have fallen out of my pocket soon after arrival, and Jo immediately set me up with another, no questions asked. Quite an embarrassing dilemma, but she was so understanding.

The room itself was pretty nice. I loved the ample desk space and well-lit work area. All amenities worked. The beautiful book on the nightstand detailing Darden's history was a neat addition.

When I - from everywhere but the South - think of Southern hospitality, the Inn at Darden pretty much sums it up.

The Inn at Darden has so many outstanding attributes going for it. The location is outstanding. There is a regular bus route that runs right in front of it negating the need for a rental car (the bus fare is free, by the way, and the parking lot is close if you do have a car). The beds and linens were so comfortable I slept like a baby each night I was there. There are snacks available including fruit and other healthy choices (and some not so healthy if that is what you are after). The Pub downstairs provided a wonderful social environment without necessitating driving/travelling around in an unfamiliar environment. For me, I was attending a week long training at Darden and I was so grateful to have a warm and comfortable home away from home to relax in each evening. The service that I received from the staff was caring and respectful at all times. They are efficient and kind. I would love to visit again with my family so that we might visit Monticello together!

Not only is this "just about perfect" in its central location on the grounds of The University, it is a really nice , clean, well appointed ,customer oriented hotel. Everything about The Inn at Darden speaks of convenience from the easy check-in, to the microwaves and frigs in the room , the superior workout facilities next door at the North Grounds RecCenter($5 fee), to the breakfast bar & coffee, this place is perfect for my trips to UVA both for fun and for business.It is always my first choice when planning a trip to Charlottesville.
