It is not particularly convenient. Därstetten is on the road between Zweisimmen and Spiez and will take you over 2 hours to get to Grindelwald by public transport. Instead of Därstetten look at Wilderswil which would be a lot more convenient.

Därstetten in the lovely Niedersimmental (Lower Simmen Valley) is a 25 minutes ride to Spiez. Many people stay in Spiez in order to explore the Bernese Oberland. But it takes indeed 1:48h to reach Grindelwald during working hours.

There is a reason why accommodation is cheaper in this area. But you also have the Stockhorn viewing point right above you. Zweisimmen/Gstaad/Lenk is not far, neither.
