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.

We spent last night at this little motel and are very pleased with our accommodations. The room was very clean, bed was nice and comfortable, shower was very powerful and water stayed nice and hot! Everything worked very well (AC, coffee maker, microwave, fridge). Cozy and quiet. We plan to stay here when we come back to the area in... More

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.

Thanks for your comments and I agree that Florida humidity can leave surfaces sticky to the touch. Rest assured that all room surfaces are sanitized between guests. More

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
