This is an old B&B in desperate need of some updating. On the good side that is part of its charm. We stayed in a shared bath room. The bathroom was TINY and very outdated. The shower was one of the smallest I have ever used (Ladies impossible to shave!) They have a lovely breakfast if it is nice out... More

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate being kept on our toes! There are three of us running the whole show at the Darius, we live here and are almost always on the property; this typically enhances guest interaction and we are sorry that was not your experience. We are glad that you enjoyed your breakfast and apologize for your... More

We have an extremely large family and cannot always get together. We were able to plan and rent the entire Darius Inn for a weekend together !!! Can't express how amazing the girls who run it are and how beautifully accommodating the Inn was for all of us, ranging from 1yr old to 85 years old !!! Going to make... More

We recently stayed at The Darius Inn on Block Island and we can not say enough about this place!! A+++++ for sure! Absolutely wonderful accommodations, very clean, well kept, comfortable, perfect location on the island. Christy, Becca and Cassandra do such an amazing job running The Darius, their hospitality is truly top notch. Breakfast (and much appreciated coffee!!) every morning... More

Convenient, comfortable, clean accomodations located in walking distance to old harbor. The hospitality is 5 star. We already made our reservations for next year. Thank you for another wonderful week.

Visited this past weekend with another couple who had come in June and fell in love with Block Island and The Darius. We stayed in room 21 which was a great size, views of the street and a small water view. Across the street. Great location walking distance to Town and Ferry. My husband and I enjoyed this stay and... More

Staying at the Darius was a delight! Accommodations were comfortable, food and drink delicious, hosts friendly and helpful, and everything just about as perfect as it could possibly be. I have no doubt that our next trip to Block Island will find us returning to the Darius.

The experience in a B&B is many time driven by the personality of the hosts. And the two sisters that run this place were able to give it a special touch. From the super-healthy and delicious breakfasts, the happy hours with their special cocktails, and the kindness and hospitality. They just made it a unique experience. Strongly recommended.

Casual and welcoming. Just the right combination of hospitality and professionalism. Decorating is slightly bohemian, but tasteful with an excellent sense of color...and spotlessly clean. We grilled oysters and clams our second night on one of their several charcoal grills. They gave us access to their dishes, kitchen tools etc which made it easy. A small inn, but set up... More

Just spent a lovely week with my parents at the Darius! Christy and Becca make everyone feel at home, the result being you feel like you are staying at a beach house rather than a B&B. The homemade breakfasts are delicious and healthy; hearty too! There's always coffee and each night guests are welcome to Happy hour upstairs, daily drinks... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Darius for 3 nights over the Labor Day weekend. It's a quaint building with charming innkeepers. We stayed in room 25 which was on the second floor and had windows overlooking the yard in the back of the house. Our room was quiet and had a nice cool breeze in the evenings. We... More
