If you aren't snooty and are looking for a place that is clean, inexpensive, convenient and well accommodates boaters this is your place. We dug the old Americana vibe of the place. After a long fun day enjoying the bay it was just what we needed. No more but no less.

We stayed at this quaint little motel while scalloping and boating for a few days. The rooms were small but perfect. The room was clean and smelled fresh each day. The other guests were friendly and considerate. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay. Rooms had a small coffee maker,... More

I'm dreading writing this review, but the secret is out!! Yes, this is a fisherman's and family hotel. It is definitely out of the 1950s. The owners are on site and super friendly. The outdoor fish cleaning station was great for cleaning our scallops. Our room was small and outdated, BUT had a fridge, microwave, great A/C, hot water, and... More

Stayed for three nights. Our room was super clean. I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. Nice and cool air conditioning. Nothing fancy here, but if you need a cozy place to sleep and clean up, this is it. We spent most of our time at a beach that was just 1/8 mile down the road. Not many people there. That... More

We really appreciate you're taking the time to tell people that your experience at the Dixie Belle was enjoyable. We have a small aging property and we try very hard to keep it the cleanest and most comfortable roadside inn for you. More

I have stayed in some rat holes in my day, but this is the first time I have ever had to argue about getting extra towels. The lady running the motel had a bad attitude and made every request a hassle. The light switch broke in our room and her first response was "Well can't do anything about til tomorrow."... More

As to the broken light switch, the guest reported it at 6 PM. I called my husband from a meeting at the VFW and the switch was repaired before the family got back from dinner. Towel theft is one of our biggest expenses. There were plenty of towels for the whole family. With this group, I had a hard time... More

Nice place. Very satisfied. Very easy to enjoy. Great beaches. Thinking of buying a home in Mexico Beach! Incredible views. Great little town. The fishing was awesome, we caught shark, snapper, trout, redfish, whiting, Pompano. You name it! Restaurants were nice. Local police were very forgiving. We just love the atmosphere.

I'll be honest; I was skeptical. However, I was pleasantly surprised by what we found. What a great little place! The location was fantastic, the room was clean and cute, and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful. I wish we could have stayed longer, but, alas, the real world is waiting.

My husband and had the pleasure of a convenient (mini-frig, microwave, coffee maker, pet friendly, drive up to door for easy loading/unloading), clean, and affordable stay at the Dixie B. The owner's are friendly and conscientious about keeping their rates affordable for everyone. We have a true appreciation for that and will, hopefully, have the pleasure of a future stay... More

We here at the Dixie Belle have no illusions about what we have to offer our guests and our favorite guests are the ones who appreciate the amenities we can provide. We work very hard and any time we get an "atta boy" it makes us feel so good. Thank you. More

The rooms we had was very clean and the owners were very helpful. We didn't really have to leave the rooms if we didn't want to because our room had a kitchen in it. I was there with my family and their friends for three days. We was so relaxed while we were there. They also had a covered deck... More

the Dixie Bell motel is small but clean and affordable. There is a fish cleaning station in back and close to the marina. It is not a family weeklong vacation type motel. Clearly a simple place to lay your head, nothing more

We're glad you enjoyed our fisherman's amenities, however we often have families and couples staying for a week or more. We offer discounted weekly rates. During the winter months we welcome our snowbirds for months at a time. More
