Nice older motel. Clean friendly and convenient. I would stay again if in the area. Good dollar value. Couple restaurants close by. Comfortable king size bed. Do not expect the Hilton but a good place to stay. Did not make reservations but still no problem.

The folks were friendly. The outside looked touched up but the inside could use some work. The non smoking room smelled of stale heavy smoke. So maybe not smoking in the last couple years. The bed was lumpy. The floor kinda grimmy.

The room you stayed in has been a non-smoking room since the day we opened. Apparently a previous guest was inconsiderate and smoked in the room. Had we been made aware there was an issue, we would have done the right thing and moved you to another room immediately. More

We find the people at this motel to be so friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but are very clean and comfortable. We always look forward to returning here for a few days while in the area for hiking, biking, and kayaking.

Basic motel and not too fancy. Price was a little high. Room that I got was clean. No problems with linens or towels. Security lock on door but no security chain. Mini-fridge but no microwave. Limited number of outlets in room. Had to pull away the bed from the wall to find one. Small, older style television.

Great hotel in a great and convenient location that allows dogs for only $10 extra per night. Directly next to City Hall with nice green spaces and a gazebo. The restaurant next to the hotel, Gruff's, is pretty good as is the restaurant/bar across the street. 2 minute drive to Dunkin Donuts and Walmart. Excellent location if going to Rainbow... More

We stayed here last March for one night while visiting family in Citrus Springs, and two nights this time. The Dinner Bell is clean, but definitely showing its age (built in 1954). The bathroom has been updated, but the large room is dimly lit (one low watt ceiling light and a small bedside lamp). The only plug available for our... More

This is the place to go if all you need is a bed and a shower cause that's all your gonna get. Front office staff were very nice and location is great. Rooms are extremely dated and in dire need of remodeling. Linens and towels were clean but all upholstered surfaces and furniture were stained. I will stay here again... More

The people were pleasant, the price was right but the room was in need of TLC-renovation in the bathroom & new carpet would make a huge difference! Also, cigarette smokers were EVERYWHERE! We don't smoke & totally hate cigarette smoke & butts everywhere!! I don't think we'd stay here again.

This was a great little motel. The staff was very friendly and it was very clean. Free WiFi. We were two women with teenagers and felt very safe. It had everything we needed. We plan on going back to Rainbow Springs and would definitely stay there again. The restaurants were close by and so were the parks. Also, I loved... More

Stayed at room 103. It was the second room we tried since the first one smelled like a wet dog. The room we settled with smelled musty, The "queen sized bed" was actually full size. The bed squeak if you as much as cough. There was an armoire in the room for a 42 or larger Flat screen TV, yet... More
