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.

This motel is where I stay when I come to Dunnellon to stay with family. I would say it's probably the best one Dunnellon has. Rooms are dated and old but they are clean and that's what matters to me. I wish they had coffee makers in the room but front desk staff made us some as soon as we... More

Ok folks, for $64 bucks a night what can you expect? In this case you get great country folk, clean rooms (dated), and great location to all that you might need in Dunnellon. We stayed right next to the office so the internet was just fine. The farther away from the office you stay the worse the wireless connection. The... More

We stayed in Dunnellon FL for the night at the Dinner Bell Motel. Rooms were clean and the best part is the restaurant you can walk to. Parts of Dunnellon are very historic. Small town charm and not to far from Rainbow Springs. Staff was really nice and helpful. They do have smoking and non smoking rooms and being a... More

When I saw the pricing for the rooms, I knew the Dinner Bell would fit my budget, but I worried about the facilities themselves, with such great pricing. I was pleasantly surprised to meet the very kind and friendly staff, and to stay in a room that, while dated and a little worn, was incredibly clean and taken care of.... More

We came to Dunellon with the kayaks for the fourth of July weekend and had a great stay at this quaint motel. It's clean, the people are really friendly, and there was plenty of parking for the kayaks (on a trailer) and our vehicle. It's located right next to the public boat launch and within walking distance to a couple... More

We wanted to stay in Dunnellen while diving Rainbow River and the Dinner Bell Motel. Not sure where the "restaurant & motel" comes in as the motel did not seem to have a restaurant (several are within walking distance, though). As is, the Dinner Bell is your basic motel, reasonably priced, clean, well maintained. Nothing fancy, but we'd stay there... More

I have stayed at this property now for two years running and will go back next time I am in the area. The staff is pleasant, the room is fine and the price is right. As has been stated already, the Rainbow River kayak outfitters are just across the road and I highly recommend the trip. There is a good... More

Took a diving trip this weekend and used the Dinner Bell because it was central to Rainbow River and Crystal River diving. I was a bit nervous because most hotels I have stayed in for $50 dollars a night have been run down. The Dinner Bell was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The air condition worked just fine,...
