Pros: The lobby, restaurant, and library are beautifully decorated and charming. The breakfasts are excellent and the owners are simply wonderful. Cons: the rooms are small and need renovation, the train can wake you up at night. The location is good for day trips to Santa Rosa Beach and Rosemary Beach.

We arrived here on touring bikes after 3 hours of hot weather riding. The innkeepers were so accommodating: ice water, secure storage of our bikes, escort to our room, info to dine in the in-site restaurant, etc. We loved our stay and had excellent food in the restaurant that evening. It is an excellent location to explore the beautiful round... More

This hotel reminds me of going back in time...like to the 1950s. The lobby and breakfast room were nicely decorated in this old, square hotel with plenty of big windows on the ground floor. Our room was fine and had all the required stuff, but was not lovely...and the sink was next to the side of the bed because the... More

My 2-night stay at the Hotel Defuniak was not long enough! There is a feeling of home as soon as you walk into the cozily decorated reception, as well as a high degree of professionalism, due to the couple who own and run it. I am so happy I didn't stay at one of the chain hotels in town! It... More

We chose to stay at Hotel DeFuniak based on first impression (website) and found this charming inn to exceed expectations. The owners were very personable, hospitality exudes. The evening restaurant was great and breakfast was excellent - the staff is exceptional. The surrounding area is so interesting - a walk around the nearby circular lake and a visit to the... More

This is one of those "off the beaten path" little gems that is hard to pass up. We had reservations for a few days in January and were disappointed when the large room with a king size bed was not available even though we had a conformation that it was available. We suspect that the room was given to friends... More

If you like old Florida, this is the place for you! Quaint, kitschy and fun in a very unique part of Florida. If you like the country, and enjoy seeing old Florida at it's finest, come to Defuniak Springs. The food at the Hotel DeFuniak is awesome, served hot and flavorful, so don't miss this great place!

I never miss staying at this historic hotel when I am in Florida's Panhandle. I love the hotel, its restaurant/bar (Bogart's), and its art gallery. My mouth is watering just thinking of their Steak Madagascar. I love taking strolls or jogging around the spring-fed lake past the grand historic homes. I love the quaint Catholic church in town. I love... More

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...
