We actually give 0 stars. I've stayed a # of times at the Inn. HOWEVER, THE INN NOW IS UNSAFE, DIRTY, AND NOT SERVICED. When we booked, an innkeeper said that the staff had been "let go," so we'd not get cleaning. This was fine due to COVID. We didn't realize that this would mean NO ONE employed by the hotel would be around. When we arrived 1 wk ago, we ran into an "owner," who said "half" the inn's rooms had no a/c & he couldn't get an electrician. Upon checking in ourselves, we ran into a group being solicited to buy the inn. During 1 wk, we saw only 3 other living guests each there 1 nt; open, vacant rooms, supposedly booked per the inn's website or hand-written anticipatory "guest" list; no inn representatives except twice over 6 days (think Psycho). An owner's son said they were losing money, lost 95% of their business and basically didn't care about room issues. Lamps and headboard were dusty, shower smelled of mold, etc. We have photos. WHY STAY? We're leaving for another inn.

Hello Donna, we thank you for voicing your concerns, albeit in a rather unpleasant manner. The door code is changed weekly, and contrary to your comments, the Inn is closely monitored on a daily basis. The impacts of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry have been catastrophic. We are a family owned single-property bed and breakfast operating on very little revenue. We have sought every possible avenue to attempt to stay above water during this 9-month Global Pandemic. We are truly sorry we could not please you, but please consider our perspective as business owners trying to stay alive operating at literally 6% occupancy. With regard to our cleaning supplies, they remain under lock and key in our storage room, so whatever snooping you did in a linen closet was not only unauthorized, but not representative of the current extra measures we have been taking to comply with current regulations. We would like to add the following: You complained about the suspension of breakfast service, which is detailed in our confirmation emails that are sent to you at time of booking, and again immediately before your arrival day. You refused to check-out at 12pm, and you took extreme offense when we advised you of the standard check-out time...at 3:30pm that day. Apparently the rules dont apply to you? We extended a grace period, despite your verbal threats. You then took pictures of us taking your garbage out to the receptacles (suspicious), not to mention you left food and garbage all over the carpet, which needed to be shampooed after your departure. We are too kind to post photos of how you left the guest room, and I certainly won't mention some of the other "paraphernalia" we found when cleaning your mess. Respectfully, The DeBary Inn

We have stayed in B&B's and hotels all over the world. Love this place! have been here 5 weeks and the INN Keepers Teresa & Vinny are great! The owners are amazing as well! Will be returning every year. There is no breakfast due to the Covid restrictions. There is great food in the town. This place is a Mansion of 16 rooms and it is beautiful!

Due to the unfortunate situation with Covid-19 we booked at the last minute. The staff welcomed us, helped with our (considerable) luggage and did all they could to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you so much, you were amazing going above and beyond our expectations. The Debary is a beautiful house, very homely and ideally located for the restaurants and shops. Also only a short 20 minute or so drive to Newark Airport, ideal if you don't want to stay in NYC. We had the 4 poster room which was spacious and comfortable. No coffee facilities in the room, but refreshments were available downstairs in the lounge so this was no problem at all. Comfiest of beds, clean and nice furnishings.

I thoroughly enjoyed my two-night stay at The DeBary Inn. My room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable, and the breakfasts (included!) were abundant and filling. Best of all, the innkeepers were exceptionally gracious and accomodating hosts. The inn is only a short walk to downtown Summit with all of its great shops and restaurants. I will defifintely stay at the DeBary Inn the next time I go to Summit and recommend it to anyone who needs a home-away-from-home in Summit.
