Typically, I am not a B&B kind of gal. I much prefer the standardized (shall we even say sterile, cold and impersonal) rooms and services available from most hotel/motel chains. That being said, I was forced to join my family when they wanted reservations at The DeBary Inn, Summit, NJ, and now I fear I’m spoiled for life. The first... More

Beautiful peaceful Inn. Great walking location to town. Clean. Lovely breakfast. Easy places to set up lap top to work inside or outside if you are on a business trip. Comfortable beds. But bring a softer little pillow or a pillow slip you can put a sweat shirt in if you do not like hard pillows.

Thank you for those kind words, and next time give Jim, the innkeeper, a shout he will get you a soft pillow. We try to accommodate everyone's needs, we have pillows from super soft to super hard. More

Had to be there (in Summit) for a weekend, so we didn't have so many choices. I took the cheapest available, which was not so cheap, and I don't regret it. This is how one should visit a small town... 5-10 minutes from the center of the town (where the train station is), a good distance from all the cafes... More

You have said it better than I ever could. At The DeBary Inn we offer more than just clean sheets and a comfortable bed, we strive to offer a wonderful experience as well. We offer all the amenities of a larger box hotel, but do it on a street right out of a Norman Rockwell painting. Treat yourself and experience... More

Accommodating, informal, and friendly. We've stayed at The DeBary Inn twice now, three years apart between stays, and we'll return. Its location is great for exploring NYC and points west. The neighborhood is safe and within walking distance of everything you need: NJTransit, great restaurants, stores . . .

My wife and I were having trouble finding an appealing, affordable place to stay in the New Jersey corridor that connects Morristown, Madison, Chatham and Summit. We finally came across the DeBary Inn, and we were glad we did. The location is excellent, whether you're traveling by car or train. It's a block away from Summit's commercial district, which includes... More

This was one of the best hotel experiences I have had recently. From the book lined entrance to the library /reading room to the very well laid out breakfast, this was the bibliophile's ultimate country estate experience - in the middle of New Jersey! My room was exceptionally well appointed, very clean, and quiet. The checkin was a breeze and... More

This is a great place to stay! The innkeeper is great and very hospitable and personalized service offered for a great stay. The availability of many modes of transportation in Summit, makes it a great alternative to Manhattan and the surrounding area.

Thank you for such kind words, and appreciate you pointing our proximity to the "many modes of transportation" in our town. We are less than 40 minutes to mid-town Manhattan, and less than 18 minutes to Newark Liberty airport. We look forward to your return. More

The hotel is close to downtown Summit and a short walk to the train station which is the best thing about it. The common area and breakfast room were nicely decorated. Breakfast is always cold as fire regulations to not allow them to cook. The breakfast table had crumbs from past users and they were all out of spoons so... More

Sorry that you found crumbs on your table, I'm certain our innkeeper took care of that issue along with the need for a spoon as soon as he became aware of the problem. He is extremely attentive, even during our busiest breakfast time. As for parking, we are located on a tree lined street, one block from downtown, in one... More
