This isn't the first time we've been in Defuniak or even the first time staying here. This is the experience to write a review. We got to town late and didn't book n but one night. With the hotel completely booked we were sure to have to move again. Instead the staff found a way to accommodate us and even... More

We spent only a night but so wished it could have been longer. Have gone to Seaside, FL for over 20 years and love the Panhandle. We stopped here on our way back from the Orlando area and just adored the place. Our room was comfortable and loaded with personality. The owner, Leigh, couldn't have been sweeter. There are art...

We spent a wonderful evening at the Hotel DeFuniak. The hostess, Leigh, was warm, friendly and very informative. The antiques and decorations in the room were very nice and much more pleasant than the standard hotel furniture.

This old B&B takes you back in time with superb hospitality and antique decor. Each room has a theme. A cozy fireplace in the lobby warms you from the cool air outside (during the winter). You feel like royalty from the moment you walk in. Tom, the owner of the B&B, called to make dinner reservations at the adjoining restaurant,... More

We were happy to discover The Hotel DeFuniak and to meet the wonderful people who run it and work there. The historic building is full of character, and each room has it's own personality. Our room was pretty small, but it was nice. Our adult children were in the suite with two rooms. It was a little more spacious and... More

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel DeFuniak on Christmas Eve 2013. We found the hotel’s history and character engaging, the parlor enticing, and the bed so comfortable I didn’t want to get up in the morning! We had arrived exhausted from highway driving on a chilly winter day and the parlor's warm fire was welcoming.... More

Wonderful surprise, the internet photos don't do this place justice. Extremely clean, well decorated and very comfortable. Thr owners walk you through some history of the building, even shown to the room, that is rare! I will be back!

We went in w no expectations and just wanted to break up our 17 hr trip. Just like the reviews said, Tom and Pam were absolute sweethearts and made us feel right at home. As a matter of fact, Tom set up our reservation for dinner at Bogeys on his own accord, which I thought was so kind and helpful.... More

All our road trips to Florida take us pass DeFuniak Springs...we always stop there, we love the community but the Hotel DeFuniak is the driving force pulling us off I-10. My wife and I are always amazed by the friendly or helpful staff that consistently greets us even before we arrive. The Hotel DeFuniak redefines excellent customer service...we especially enjoy...

My husband and I have visited the Hotel for several years and it only gets better. We love going in December to see the Christmas lights.....a must see. Tom, Pam, Tannell and Brian are the best host you could ever wish for. We have only been home a week and I'm already missing my home away from home.
