After travelling for 14 hours. I decided to stop and I stumbled across the Darien Inn. Just looking for a room. To my surprise this hotel was more that delightful. Now, the chain restaurant was a big disappointment. But thank you staff of the Darien Inn.

My wife and I spent the night here last week (May 2016). The signage is poor and the exterior is very plain. (You have to enter the outlet mall driveway and make an immediate right onto a 'service' road, then left into the motel.) But don't be put off by that. I rate it a "5" in the context of...

Initially concerned about the price (seemed low). We stopped and checked the room before booking. Room was clean, many new features, including a new AC unit, and solid beds. Pillows were a quirky small square size, but lots of them. Breakfast was good. Overall lots of attention to smaller details. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and would not...

ends of the earth

My first stay at the Darien Inn was a pleasant one-night visit; however, that was not the case most recently. Unfortunately, I cannot post another review of the hotel for three months, but those considering staying there should know that I stayed from 1/23-1/26/2014 while visiting my 9 year-old daughter. She stayed overnight with me and woke up the first morning with what looked like a rash, hives or bites to her hand and a few other places. I thought she might have gotten the bites from gnats while playing outside. I looked at the bed sheets, saw a few spots that looked like old stains as well as two faint red lines of about 1-2 inches in length. The next morning she had even more red, swelling areas over her body. Her mom came to the hotel and said it was likely stress due to our pending divorce hearing. The areas on her body became so itchy and painful that my wife took her to a nurse practitioner who said it looked like bug bites. Upon another inspection of the sheets, we found two bugs. They didn't look like the ones on the Internet when searching bed bugs; however, they may have been full of my daughter's blood. We notified the management, and the owner/manager saw the bugs and picked them off of the sheets, then said he would call an exterminator. I was moved me from room 110 to 115. I didn't file any sort of grievance due to the hotel being nice to my daughter and her mom during a lengthy stay last year. When checking out, there was no reduction in my bill. It is 1/29/14 and my daughter is being taken back to the nurse practitioner because the itching and pain is not subsiding.
