Room reservations confirmation emails were confusing -- kept saying one room when we reserved two side-by-side. Three times I verified before our trip, 3x told actual reservation was correct. Arrived and one room was completely removed from not just next door, but isolated -- set aside from all others, around 2 corners and down 3 halls. Desk help always acted... More

The Inn at Darden is a little outdated but clean and comfortable. Everything you'd need to make your stay a good one is there and they have rooms for studying or collaborating. It's probably more of a 2.5 star experience but the staff is good and you probably won't even notice that your room is like a time-capsule from the... More

Stayed one night with my daughter while doing a college tour. Hotel was convenient, bed was comfortable, and the room clean. They only have rooms with queen beds, and so they did bring a roll away for us to use. They made great recommendations for us for dinner, and were quick to answer any questions we had. Would certainly stay... More

There were lots of gnats flying about the room, and it had kind of a musty smell. The place that was supposed to be open for breakfast on Saturday morning was closed at the time when we were told it would be open for meal service. We got lost getting to the Pavillion where the Rehearsal Dinner was orchestrated, so... More

I stayed at the Inn for the first time in June - old school reunion time. The rates were reasonable, the room comfortable, the grounds attractive (this is UVa) and the staff helpful and pleasant. Parking a slight pain (nothing super convenient) but a small price to pay to preserve the aesthetics of the red brick/white column business school grounds.... More

Just back from a long stay there. It gives a comfortable feeling and a warm one. But it should make up it's mind if it is a hotel or a guest house. There is no place to comfortably sit in the evenings or socially. Can't order it at a pinch. The housekeeping is generally good, but a kitchenette would have... More

The UVA Inn at Darden is a lovely hotel with beautiful, well-appointed rooms with amenities like in-room coffee/tea, bottled water, robe, refrigerator, microwave, iron & safe. The rooms are beautifully furnished as well. There also is an onsite pub. We would definitely stay there again given the opportunity.

This hotel is located on UVA campus. The room was clean and comfortable. Amenities include free parking, free wifi, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and luxury bath products. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from on campus or in the historic district but you need to drive. This is a good choice if visiting campus.

My stay at the Inn couldn't have been better. It is one of the most peaceful places I have ever been. My room was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and the staff service impeccable. I highly recommend this venue.

Darden Inn is a very nice property, competent friendly staff and very convenient if you have a conference or need to be on Campus. My room was clean, comfortable and very quiet; afternoon cookies are super. Dining options are largely off campus. Parking is free.
