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

While on a day trip to Mexico Beach with our two girls, my husband and I decided to stay overnight at the last minute. After checking around Mexico Beach and finding either no vacancies or outrageous prices, we expanded our search and found Dixie Belle online. The pictures on their website looked nice and neat enough, but those pics are... More

We stayed at the Dixie Belle and found it to be just as described in the description. It is an older motel. Nothing fancy; but very clean. We had to cut our stay short as my brother died. The owner only charged us for the days that we were there, no cancellation fee or anything. Very few owners would do... More

Based on what I read, I did not expect the room to smell like it did. I didn't expect much for the price. The room was small, dark and noisy. The bathroom and sheets were clean. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

On a couple of your issues I must admit that you are totally correct in your criticism. I went down to room #1 to check for myself and yes, it smelled funky to me. Sometimes our fishermen drag their fish coolers into the room and they leak. Anyway, we're in the middle of our spring deep cleans, so #1 is... More
