The hotel is older, from the days when small towns had little hotels with the public areas decorated like a genteel southern plantation manor. The rooms are quite small and that contributes to the feeling of visiting a manor house. At night, once or twice, you hear the train whistle as it passes through town. Your mind wanders and you...

I have to lead this by addressing that negative review because the reviewer appears to be German and I think something got lost in translation. As the owner explained to me, this hotel has gone through several iterations over the last century to become the bed and breakfast it is today. By my best count, there are around ten rooms.... More

Traveling from Texas to Florida, we were beat! Tired of interstate chains, we fired up the iPads. We needed a comfortable bed, wine, good food, and something special. The owner greeted our moving truck in the street, got us parked, immediately got us the wine we were needing, and he & his wife made this a special stop. Old town... More

My Husband and I stayed here during our three week US Vacation and it was by far the worst hotel experience we had. The paint was peeling of the hallway walls. The bead-head was only lying against the wall and everytime the pillow moved the bead-head moved and banged against the bed or the wall. Our room was decorated with... More

Tom and Pam made our trip one that we'll always remember. When they say on their website that they will spoil you, they are NOT kidding. Before we even hit the road, Tom called to find out if we wanted a dinner reservation for the hotel restaurant. You MUST eat dinner in the hotel restaurant. It was the perfect meal... More

My husband and I stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon and it was so lovely. We stayed in the romantic suite and it was so pretty and sweet. The staff was friendly and the breakfast in the morning was devine! We will definitely be back for out anniversary.

We stayed at this hotel because of the positive reviews, our room (#9 ) smelled of bleach in the bathroom, the walls in the master bedroom had peeling paint, the shower had very little pressure. Considering the price we paid. We went to Waffle house for breakfast! because of the general lack of upkeep and the general disappointment with the... More

Spent one night at the DeFuniak Hotel and enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed temporarily but the cafe was opened and a very nice breakfast is included in your rate. Reading the other reviews, I wish we had requested a suite. Our room was fine, but it was small and lacked seating and some other conveniences that are... More

We traveled here in June after a day in the Florida panhandle. We were not sure where to go so we called the hotel and they had availability, they even gave us a very excellent price for an upgrade to the penthouse, which was phenomenal!!! By far my kids favorite hotel EVER!

I stayed at the DF Hotel for six nights, in August, 2014. It was truly one the of the lovliest experiences of my life. Everything was impeccably clean, tightly organized, and the staff was incredibly polite, friendly, and helpful... they went WAY beyond the call of duty. If you are ever in that area, PLEASE do yourself the exquisite favor... More
