Love the DeBary Inn. My very favorite place to stay in Summit. The Inn is especially beautiful at Christmas with all the festive decorations inside and out. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast has lots of nutritious and tempting options. I like the free...More

Thank you Lory, lest we forget our wonderful guests. If we could measure our inn by the guests we attract, we would be 5 stars.

For most business trips, I end up at one of the big chains. Based on the reviews, I decided to try something different and chose the DeBary Inn for a couple of days. It's a great old house, a lot of character. Very laid back....More

Thank you for pointing out our proximity to both Newark Airport (15 min door to terminal), and transit trains to NYC. We are extremely lucky to be located 1 block from beautiful downtown Summit, with it's wonderful restaurants, and terrific shops.

Sorry you chose to repeat the same untruth on TripAdvisor. The electric, supplied by JCPL, was out from 7:13 pm to 9:00pm. A less than two hour inconvenience, that was beyond our control. You returned from a nearly two hour dinner and stormed out having...More

We had a very pleasant experience at the DeBary Inn, despite some rather trying conditions (no electricity for part of the evening). The room was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. The continental breakfast was plenty lavish enough for us. The staff was very helpful and...More

Sorry for the JCPL issue, all of Summit was out for a couple hours. But glad to see you rallied and had a wonderful stay.

The DeBary is one of the closest locations to Seton Hall we have found for lodging that isn't just an average hotel. We decided at the last minute to arrive a day early and were put up in a different room than we had booked...More

Absolutely a great place. Mostly, business travelers but I SK sure the Inn is kid friendly. Two blocks from Summit, a wonderful and quaint town with great restaurants. Sorry for the late response.
