The price was reasonable, our room was clean, though the carpet in our room was very stained(very big stains) and probably should be replaced. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioner was noisy, but consistently so --so it was easy to sleep. I was in several other rooms since I was there with a group of people and carpet... More

This hotel is really bare bones. The Bad: Not much for amenities, no pool, no fitness center, no breakfast, no shampoo and conditioner, etc. The rooms are old and run down and the beds are very uncomfortable. The pillows are even worse than the beds, paper thin and they only give you 2 per bed. There were little bugs all... More

Loved our family getaway to Rainbow Springs. The Dinner Bell was close to everything. It is very clean without that overbearing chemical smell, The beds were comfortable, and the shower had great pressure with hot water. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Everyone was so nice and helpful. My son loved that you got an actual room... More

We loved our stay at Dinner Bell. The room was very clean. Our only complaint is the shower head is too short and the pillows are too thin. Other than that everything was great. I found the staff to be very friendly. We will definitely stay again.

The Dinner Bell is merely ok. My room was large and the bed was pretty comfortable. Looks like the last reno took place in the 70s. I got a smoking room (last room avail) and there burn marks on the table and the bathtub. The sheets were clean as were the bath linens. The lady at the desk seemed like... More

We are relocating and decided to stay with Randy at the Dinner Bell Motel. Our room- 204 was great. The beds were confortable(made a few squeaking sounds when you roll) and pillows were thin ( I bought my own from Walmart). Bathrooms were SPOTLESSLY and room carpet was new. It is not your Disney World resort but we found it... More

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
