Had to change rooms. Door to room was propped open when we got there, killed couple roaches, + crumbled cookies beside bed. Guy at front desk was very nice and next room was okay, but definitley much better than previous. Average breakfast.

Not really a top notch, you can tell that they 'tried' to remodel, but the quality is poor (I'm a builder). But if you are just passing through, its a decent place to stay on a budget for one night. The staff was really nice!

Room doors appear as if a child purchased and installed! The window on the ground floor would not lock! Water was awful, once tasted could not drink the water or coffee. I can not see where this Hotel got a rating above 1! Tripadvisor needs...More

My family and I were on our way to FL from VA, and stopped in Darien for the night on our way. The hotel is near the abandoned outlet mall, but there is a Burger King near by and a gas station to fill up....More

Front desk staff was busy on her phone while checking me in...found that very disruptive. WiFi is not working properly so I could never sign on. Bathroom needs to be updated badly! Checking out was ok!

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.
