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...

We do not have bugs of any kind. Our pest service is here once per month. No one has come to our front desk to complain about bugs and we've never had a guest by this name.

I stayed at the Dixie Belle Motel for one night on a motorbike trip across the USA. It might not look it, but it's perfect for a short stay: the room was clean, warm and comfortable and the owner was helpful and friendly. It is a little bit out of town, so it will be good if you have transportation...

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!

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...

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...
