Keep and open mind if you stay at the Dixie Belle. It is a vision out of the past. It is a roadside motel like nothing this generation has seen but I remember as a child staying in many times with my family. It is run down but clean and bug free. The folks are friendly. Perfect location. And they... More

I didn't expect much, but I did expect a clean environment. My first clue should have been the filthy office and the cat that was allowed to climb across the counter while I was checking in. Fine, no big deal. Another clue was she demanded payment up front for both nights, which I complied with. We got into the extremely... More

As is the standard for most if not all motels/hotels payment for the entire stay is asked for once you check in. This is not abnormal or unheard of. Yes when we took ownership there was a catio attached to the property. Our cats do not use it, and they have no used it since the issue was brought to... More

My family stayed in the biggest room, we had a kitchen for cooking. The rooms were clean, neat and functional. The owners let us use the patio and grill while we were there. We had a great time and other guests came and sat with us on the patio.

I'm confused with the previous reviews of the Dixie Belle. Maybe some of the rooms are updated? Ours was old, and DEFINITELY not clean or well kept! No offense to the staff (who were very friendly), but I would not walk on the carpet in my bare feet or even socks. WE washed the kitchen floor, and it was filthy.... More

I was having medical treatment at a nearby hospital over a few days, and needed a place to stay. It is the high season in this tourist town, and the rates at neighboring hotels and inns were prohibitive for me, and there was only a vacancy for one day at one other hotel. So I read the reviews, called and... More

Always wanted to stay here when driving by in the 80s and 90s. Looks like an old 1950 motel. Have stayed a few times - one for a bachelor trip and twice when coming down for last minute fishing trips. Old and rough inside. Owners a bit odd and not particularly friendly. They are definitely sticklers for the rules so... More

Sorry it took me so long to respond, but we've been very busy. Yes we do cover our mattresses and box springs for our guests' protection. And yes, the baths built is 1956 are tiny. The Dixie Belle is not for everyone but we have a loyal following and new guests who love to say with us. More

Honestly, it's not a bad little hotel as far as looks and comfort, but it's not worth 70$ per night after tax. It could be 50$ or MAYBE 60... There were small roaches in our room and I was bitten by something overnight (I'm assuming a spider). We complained to the front desk, but they didn't care and told us... More
