Where do I begin?? OK, so this was the only hotel we could find in the area for our weekend vacation. When we got there, the room was filthy. There was dust all over the walls and the sheets felt less than clean. We later discovered a large blue wad of chewed gum on the bed post, a small dead crab on the floor, duct tape holding the tiles of the kitchen floor together, and a small brownish-red stain on one of the blankets (it seriously looked like blood to me). When we would walk around the room, our feet would turn black from all the dirt on the carpet and floor (which caused us to say "I have Dixie Belle feet" whenever we needed to clean our feet off). The whole thing was so awful that we really had a lot of laughs at the motel room's expense, haha. It provided a lot of entertainment! Also, the TV was way across the room from the beds (I would say about 15-20 feet away) so that you could barely see it; and the phonebook was from January 2003!!! Also, the owner was less than friendly. When my friend asked her if they change the towels out (since we were staying 2 nights), she rudely replied "no, we don't usually." But hey, we survived. If you want a good laugh and don't mind roughing it, then yes I would reccommend the Dixie Belle. If you want a relaxing, enjoyable stay, then no I would not.
