First time staying here. Dan greeted us upon arrival and was very helpful with places to eat in town. Our room was clean, had a small kitchen, both the bed and pillows were comfortable. The wifi was fast. This room was perfect for us. We were pleasantly surprised that the beach was less than five minutes away! It's our plan... More

We always look for this style of motel and we were not disappointed. It was absolutely clean and fresh smelling and we were able to open the windows and enjoy the clean air. We had a full kitchen with a large table for eating and could unpack and spread out. The beds and pillows were good. The owners were helpful... More

It is not too bad for one night stay. Cheap, and has "old motel" feel. Overall was clean, though pretty worn. Internet was fast. I wouldn't stay longer than needed though. Everything was sticky - floor, furniture, walls. A little weird for me personally.

Dixie Belle Motel is a great place for the adventures. If you are going fishing , crabbing, hiking and want to do cooking for yourself it's a great place. Bed was comfortable . Little kitchen had what you need to cook your own meals. Quite and comfortable. No hair dyer for the ladies so bring your own. Coffee in room... More

Clean and reasonably priced with that old time roadside motel feel. The drive by first impression holds for what you'll experience if you stay here, neat, clean, and basic.Great value if you're looking to save a few bucks, less than 5 minutes from downtown and the public docks.

Thanks for your comments. I agree with you, that no matter how well we clean, our Florida humidity can make things a little sticky. Could weird me out also. More

This was my second time staying at the Dixie Belle. Me and my wife love staying here. The rooms are wonderful and local to the beach and town. The staff is the best. This is our home away from home. We already have our vacation plans for December set up and will back in Port St Joe for a luxurious... More

You are too kind. The Dixie Belle is far from a 5 review, but that it works for you makes us very happy. Thank you so much. More

Reminiscent of the motels of my childhood except cleaner and with an updated 'beachie' decor. Front office very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean...sheets soft...no perfume smell in rooms...just a totally clean smell. Handy for fishermen with boats. Can't beat the price! I would stay here and recommend it to others.

You have to expect retro it kind of has the 60's-70's feel. My wife and I loved it and will be back. The motel was quiet and our room was clean. The owners were hospitable and gave us some great advice on where the best places are to go scalloping. Also there's a fish cleaning station with a refrigator behind... More
