I chose the DeBary Inn for an overnight stay primarily because it was located within walking distance of where I needed to go. It proved to be a delightful choice. It's in a beautiful, 130 year old house, nicely restored with a pleasant and helpful staff. Clean room, comfy bed, flat screen tv, and well working bath. And for a... More

My husband was having surgery at Overlook Hospital in Summitt. We live 90 minutes away and had to be there at 6AM. We weren't familiar with the area but wanted to stay someplace close to the hospital. So by luck, we found DeBary Inn. We needed a room on December 23rd! We were pleasantly surprised at the old charm and... More

This was our second time staying at the DeBary Inn. I love the historic house, the sitting room with old fashioned radio, model ships and books to look through combined with modern conveniences. Breakfast was ample with many choices. The hotel is just a block from town. Yes, the heating and cooling can be a bit uneven from room to... More

The DeBary Inn was impeccable. We stayed in the very clean, third floor two-room suite. The bed was comfortable. The room had wonderful soaps made with orange extract, and very ample closet, desk and shelf space. Jimmy, the home attendant, greeted us and offered suggestions about local restaurants and walking directions to the nearby train station. Tables in the breakfast... More

The DeBary Inn was like a home away from home! The staff were very accommodating and helpful! The room was very comfortable! The location was fantastic! There were plenty of stores and great restaurants only a couple of blocks away! We will certainly make this our stop over place when we are in the area again! Thanks!

The Debary is a great choice if you are tired of chain hotels and don't want to pay 5-star prices. you'll want to read your check in instructions before you travel as the reception is not always manned. Also heed teh warnings to park in the lot and not on the side street. The hotel has many rooms and the... More

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst travelling to the area on busines. The hotel is very clean and comfortable and I enjoyed my stay. The breakfast was also very good with fresh breads and fruit every day. Location is easy to get to via road or rail (approx 10 min walk to Summit train station which links to Penn... More

I grew up in the area and know it well. This is the third time I have needed a "non-home" place to stay and it was definitely the best. Lovely room. Great bathroom. A lot is "self-serve" like check in and breakfast, but that works fine. Parking off street was challenging some nights. Good thing I was in a wee... More

I booked my room through Hotels.com and at the time I had no idea that I had booked a room in a B&B. I was travelling on business and normally stay in traditional business hotels but the recommended hotel was booked solid so I had to go search out a different place for my stay. I booked this place totally... More

Very disappointing. Seems to be geared toward business travelers, keeping human contact to a minimum. The inn keeper kept us waiting at the front desk for a good 15 minutes while on the phone. Barely could get a good morning from him at breakfast while he sat in the parlor watching TV. We stayed in Room #5, and the furniture... More
