    Plenty of Genuine Southern Charm

    Plenty of genuine southern charm, architecturally unique and private location. All staff were super friendly and very helpful. And the food was delicious! Having the hotel room across the street was perfect for not having to get in the car and drive anywhere after the party. Highly recommend!

    Hello Kathy,
    Glad to hear you had a wonderful guest experience. Hope to see you again soon!

    We used the Darden Inn as a secondary room block for our main hotel, Boars Head Inn. They were super easy to work with and provided a great rate for our guests. Those who stayed their loved their rooms! Darden Inn also does not (at least at the time of our wedding) require a deposit or minimum for room blocks--a huge plus over some other areas. The only downsides are that almost all of the rooms are single queens, not great for friends looking to share, and that if your fall wedding date happens to be on the same date as a home football game you may not be able to use them. But regardless, we highly recommend!

    Inn at Darden's reply:

    Thank you for the positive feed back Rachel. Always nice to hear that we are "easy to work with". Take care and please visit us again!
