It was close to where we needed to be! That is about all that was ok with the stay. The place has been around for a while by the condition of our room. The bed was not that comfortable and there was a previously used wash cloth on the shower curtain rod! The room never really got that cool either!

Staff was very helpful and took care of a booking error I caused. Room was big and pretty nice. Furniture needs to be pulled away from the wall and cleaned behind. HAVC unit was filthy inside. We removed the filters and cleaned them, but the rest of the inside needs cleaning. With temps already in the 90's we were surprised...

I wish more EconoLodge hotels met the standards of this hotel. The hotel was cost effective for our one night stay and gave very good value for the money. The facilities, though old, were clean and well maintained.

We found this motel to be satisfactory, with clean rooms, efficient check-in and checkout, and comfortable beds.

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.
