Granted, we check Trip Advisor before we travel anywhere. And true to form, guests gave us the low down on this little jewel in Darien, GA. We checked in to the hotel on 11/13 hoping it would live up to its reputation-- and it certainly did. Days Inn Darien is about 1/2 way between Savannah and Charleston. Small town, big hearted people. Martha Clark, the General Manager, could not have been kinder, more helpful, or welcoming. She has a great "family" working with her to ensure that guests have everything they and more. Antoinette checked us in, gave us information about our accommodations, where to eat, how to get there and really knows how to show Southern hospitality. The only thing she didn't do is hand us teddy bears and give us good night hugs and sing us a lullaby.
The town of Darien was cute and quaint...perhaps not enough town for some folks. But in Darien's defense, the people are lovely and the BBQ restaurant is full of chatty folks and are all sucking their fingers from eating shrimp and ribs just like we were.
The Darien Days Inn was full of folks--particularly snowbirds who stop both ways on their way to the Sunshine State. So there is a regular clientele who shared their adventures on the road, as did we.
Our room was lovely, immaculate, with a large comfy bed. We watched TV for awhile with all the wonderful pillows behind us. We had a microwave, fridge, coffee machine at our disposal. Showering after being on the road was yummy and the towels were fluffy. We had just come from a ten hour a day and we had no complaints. Love a quiet room with no sounds from neighbors or noise from the parking lot.
My husband enjoyed breakfast. I had only coffee as I wake up more slowly than he does. Breakfast room was clean and our server was an adorable young woman who kept a watch on the food, replenishing it as needed as she did with the coffee. If you enjoy a quaint experience, great service, great room, you will love exploring this little piece of Georgia history. Don't forget to see the water, all the moss on the huge trees, and see a town that hasn't changed in years.
This a terrific deal for the price. RL and I will definitely stop again when heading "up North" from Nokomis, FL.
Hope you enjoy your visit!
