Good value

Staying right on the business school campus was fun. While parking wasn't immediately close, it was an incredible deal for Memorial Day weekend. Room was similar to other 3* properties and the continental breakfast was nice.

Recommend

Although a distance from the undergrad facilities, this hotel still gives you the feel of being at UVA. There's a great gym across the street, Darden is beautiful and the staff is very nice.

On campus experience

Our stay was very pleasant. We love to walk and being on campus gave us a wealth of walking experiences. The room was comfortable and the staff was very pleasant. Charlottes ville hotels can get expensive but The Inn at Darden was very reasonable. We visit annually for walking and winery visits. We will return.

Fist time to Virginia

Great value, I do not know if we were just there at time right time, but our stay was perfect. Our stay was only threedays and two nights, otherwise we could have enjoyed even more amenities the hotel had to offer.

OK for UVA Exec program, not recreational stay

This is probably good hotel for those attending a week or more, live-in UVA program, but not for someone used to conveience of a 3 str mid or upper scale chain hotel. Physical layout is, at best, inconvenient, parking crowded and inconvenient, "continental breakfast" overpromised. Staff gave the impression that they assumed you had stayed therebefore, new what you were getting, and knew the strange physical layout.

Nice surprise

This inn is located on the UVA campus. It isn't in walking distance to the main st. or the corner, but it is a lot nicer than staying at a big chain hotel on Emmett. The room was clean and comfortable. The building and location are charming. Enjoy!

Great value!

Could not have been happier with our stay at the Inn at Darden. My fiance and I were in town for a wedding and were able to get an early check-in. The complementary items were a nice touch (especially the bottled water - needed that after a spring wedding!) .Friendliest staff I have ever encountered at a hotel, everyone was very welcoming! The location is great, though parking isn't spectacular (since the Inn is on Grounds, it's a little bit of a walk from the Parking Garage).

Unexpected find

The normal chain hotels were all full so we decided to try this accommodation. We were pleasantly surprised with how nice it was, in room comfort and the area it was in. The campus area is beautiful. We will definitely try to stay here again when we are in Charlottesville. The only negative was the small breakfast area.

Nice Charlottesville Experience

Conveniently located on campus - parking was very easy, free snacks at check-in, water in your room that they don't charge you for, breakfast in the morning. All in all a great experience.
