This Inn is a total gem. Run by two lovely sisters, it's a beautiful old building with incredibly fun art, vintage furnishings, linens and lots of adorably branded items (some for sale!). It's clear this is a place designed with a lot of love, and their attention to their guests was awesome. Delicious breakfast too. Comfortable bed, great water pressure...

Becca and Christy are super friendly sister Innkeepers. They run this establishment so that you feel relaxed and well cared for . A happy hour and home made, delicious breakfast are part of the stay, and it's as comfortable as being in a private home. This is not a fancy or pretentious place, but it is clean and welcoming. The...

Booked 3 nights here but stayed only 1. Lovely inn, charming innkeepers and great décor. Booked room 21 as it offered air conditioning and a private bath. Trouble is, it is located directly across the narrow hall to a shared bathroom between 2 other rooms. The incessant opening and closing of different doors throughout the night makes for a difficult...

If you visited a friend's beach house as a child and wish you could return, The Darius Inn is the place to go! You will sleep dreamily in the comfortable beds in charming accommodations featuring interesting art. Upon waking up, head to the kitchen for a delightful breakfast prepared by Christy, one of the sisters who own the inn. Everyday...

You cannot beat the Darius for an away from it all vibe that is actually close to everything! Nicer proprietors you will never meet. Pick one of the suites and you will want to stay all summer; plenty of room and comfort. You will want to know the recipes for all the daily breakfast and happy hour treats. Is this...

Another stay at the Darius and as usual good times, good energy and good people. The Inn is dog friendly and has air-conditioning a huge plus in my book. The breakfast from 8-10am is very authentic and multicultural, not your typical pastry and high carb junk that you see at a lot of other Inns. The owners are sociable and...

Relaxing, friendly, welcoming, ....just perfect! My family and I stayed at the Darius in late August, and we just fell in love. So much so that we booked a stay for next year already. The ladies who own the b&b work endlessly to make your stay effortless and so you can enjoy all block has to offer. The location is...

After having some issues finding a hotel or B&B in Block Island that isn't totally run down, we saw this place. Just stayed there last weekend and it's amazing. It's really clean and the folks who run it are great. Can't think of one thing that I would change. We're looking forward to going back next year!
