The folks were very friendly and accommodating. The room was small and antiquated. A great place to stay if you want to get a feel of a roadside flashback to the fifties. Refrigerator, microwave and coffee in the room. Located next to the highway so you may hear traffic at night. A decent stay for the price.

We are beginning our second week of a two week stay here, and feel that this is our home away from home! Very friendly and professional staff and owners, clean and comfy rooms, and our dog is welcome! For my husband, there's a great fish-cleaning area behind the hotel that includes freezers and fridges, towels, buckets, hose, cutting board and... More

We enjoyed our stay at Dixie Belle Motel while visiting the area. The motel room is quaint with enough room to relax and plan for our visit. The owners were friendly. I plan to visit the area again with my family and stay at the Dixie Belle Motel as well.

The Dixie Belle is the quintessential 1950's era roadside motel that has graciously adapted to address the needs of today’s traveler. It’s evident that the owners have continued to make updates over the years within the confines of rooms that were originally designed for the weary motorist looking for a clean bed and a shower. The small, clean rooms include... More

My wife and I were less than a week until our anniversary, and still did not have a plan our geriatric dog, Princess, would agree with. Her demands were firm; good air conditioning, plenty of treats and a short walk to a suitable place to do her business. That ruled out a cruise to the Bahamas. Ditto a trip to... More

I have stayed at this location in the past and it was actually a very clean, quiet, and reasonable place to stay. However, the owners are horrible, judgmental people that actually bash there customers on their Facebook page. These people obviously don't have and business ethics what so ever and I will not be returning or recommending this Motel to... More

The motel is clean, cheap and comfortable, however if you value your self at all, do not stay there. The owners are judgemental malcontents who will post on their business facebook page bashing their patrons before you've even checked out. If you do anything other than sleep in their beds, I'm sure the the whole world will know about it.... More

This is year 2 at the Dixie Belle. This year we have an extra child so decided to get the suite w/kitchenette. Great use of space. We've also noticed they've updated a few things, which has made the stay nice. We definitely recommend this motel! It's not fancy but your time in a room is do limited. THSNK you to... More

If your looking for the Hilton, move along. It's dated, a little worn around the edges but clean. The water is hot when you shower. The beds are comfortable, linens are clean. All we wanted was a place to sleep & this fit the bill. Close to the road but didn't hear any traffic over the a/c.
