Stopped here on the way home from Florida. Hampton Inn was full as was the Days Inn. They recommended the Darien Inn. Room was clean, bathroom spotless. Worked well as it was right off the highway. Left before breakfast so I can't comment on the food. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We selected this hotel based on TripAdvisor ratings and reviews. Based on outward appearance one probably would not choose to stay here. This area is truly depressed as most, if not all, of the shops in the outlet were closed permanently. Hotel is dated but clean. Staff was friendly.

Darien seems to have closed it's doors since our last stop there. The hotel is called that Darien Inn at the Outlet Mall. The Mall used to be about 100 or more retailers, and you could find clothes, gifts and tons of things you might like--alas, now it's a used furniture store and a YMCA. Most of the restaurants in...

We had a room on the first floor. It was very clean and had a lot of room for our stuff. We had a microwave and minifridge in the room. Beds were comfortable but the pillows were pretty soft and small. The air conditioner got the room pretty cold, even in 99 degree weather. Our last night there, the air...

After a very long day of travel on July 4th weekend, I decided to call it a night! Stopped at the Darien Inn for a room (no reservation) and was greeted by the nicest desk clerk, Varonda.

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.
