“Well located and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

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 met. The room was clean, quiet and reasonably comfortable for two people. Had I been travelling alone the queen bed would have been perfect.

If the university is the reason for your trip short of being a guest of President Sullivan hard to imagine you could have a better experience than this.

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. The room itself was clean, nicely furnished, had Wifi for multiple devices (each had a separate password) and a large TV. I am recommending the Inn to all of my colleagues who will attend a JAG school class. I would definitely stay there again if attending any training on or near the UVA campus.

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 everything to include great food, track, gym and swimming pool.

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 breakfast (pastries, fruit and coffee) was exactly what we wanted.

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 in the Gatehouse, and a comfortable room. A real value for the money as well. And the room number was the same as my first year dorm in 1965! No matter where I stay in Charlottesville, I feel welcome, but this place made me feel back home.

Thanks for your review. Our staff, amenities and location make us an ideal choice regardless of your reason for visiting the area. In response to your comments on room directions, we will be rolling out a new signage package next month that should make it easier for our guests to find their way around the property. Go Hoos!

Wedding weekend stay. Very comfortable and clean rooms. Front desk ladies were very nice and helpful. Highly recommend this property for staying close to the university. It is central to all activity around town.
