The Dinner Bell is one of three places to stay in Dunellon. It is definitely an older place (outside hallways, square analog TVs), but it is very clean, the beds are comfortable, and it is fairly quiet. The rooms have been painted recently, and the towels are fairly new (not the threadbare postage stamp size you sometimes get!). We had... More

What a value! We came for one night and stayed 8. Everyone that works here is extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was not dated as some reviews said - very nice and comfortable and quiet. We appreciated the coffee in the office and the working ice machine. I simply cannot say enough good things about how clean the room... More

Randy & Jimmy run this small motel, and they do a GREAT job. They are very accommodating & have free coffee in the office in the mornings. The rooms are newly re-modeled & are always neat & clean. Work takes us to Dunnellon each week, and this nice motel is a real Home Away from Home for us. Also, it's... More

It's the second time me and my wife staid there and they have definitely stepped up their game. Great pet friendly hotel. Looked recently remodeled with comfortable bed. Very clean and nice staff. Great place to stay if you are going to spend the day on river.

My wife and I stayed for a weekend. The motel is located in the center of several attractions and the local diner's were great. The room was very clean and the air conditioner worked perfect. I would return for another stay.

We booked two nights to go tubing and swimming. The Motel was fine it was basic but clean, the bathroom was in better condition that other more expensive hotels we had stayed in in Florida where mildew can be an issue. We were concerned about noise with it being on a busy road and a bar/restaurant next door - that... More

We stayed here two nights on a three week trip through Florida in July. The five star rating comes not from a view point that this is a fancy hotel. it isn't. But what it does deliver it delivers well. Comfortable and clean rooms, great attraction with the Springs, fantastically warm owner, fantastically warm town and people, great Indian food... More

Hey yes it ain't a 5 star hotel but it was safe. Rooms where clean, no bugs, good location central to everything. Walking distance to river to do a little fishing. Great small town charm with a very relaxed setting.

While I paid a very affordable rate of $64 for the room, it included no amenities. No coffee maker in room and the Dinner Bell Motel does not offer a continental breakfast. There is a restaurant on property and the nearby Front Porch Restaurant has a nice breakfast menu. Room was dated but clean and comfortable.
