Defuniak Springs is a pleasant small town in the panhandle of Florida. Most traffic bypasses the town on I-10 and most people probably stay in the chain hotels near the highway exit.

We had my daughter's baby shower at the hotel and it was just a marvelous experience. The staff did an outstanding job and we could not have asked for anything more. The little added touches made by the staff just brought the event over the top. We can't thank them enough for making this day extra special. My family stayed... More

We stayed at the Hotel for a family wedding. Three of our families were here and we loved it! It is the best place to stay in the area. The restaurant is excellent, and the hotel treats you as family. We would highly recommend it!

What a very pleasant surprise. I was greeted by the owners Tom and... More

A stay here is to travel back to old Florida. A very friendly staff, warm owners, and outstanding rooms. The breakfast was fantastic. Parking is easy. The lake and historic homes are walking distance. It's a glimpse of how traveling used to be and nothing could be more charming.
