Reviewed 11 April 2017

Pleasant, clean and quiet. Nonsmoking room had no odors. Only con was the shower had just the pipe, no actual shower head. Had both microwave and fridge. Had exactly type of room I requested. Good location for a stay to see the area on a budget.

This motel is owned by hometown folks who really take care of you. They keep it spic and span clean. We were in town on business but it's ideal for a fishing trip since there's a boat ramp on the river right behind the motel. Brothers Jimmy and Randy are great guys who run a quality motel. Yes it's old...

Quick stop while traveling to our campsite. Staff was pleasant, room was clean. Not the Ritz, but you get what you pay for. Would return if back in the area, walking distance to many restaurants in the area.

It is your basic lodging. Our room was clean but our nonsmoking room was definitely smoked in. Not sure if that was an issue in other rooms. No hairdryers but everything else was fine. Restaurant bar next door and several others in the area.

Randy L, Owner at Dinner Bell Motel, responded to this review

All of our rooms are non-smoking, sometimes people are just rude and do not care about others. We have been forced many times to block rooms until we can clear them of the smell of smoke with the Ionizer (air purifier). Sorry for the problem, I will remind the staff that we need to stay on our toes, Randy

We spent 2 nights here in Nov. 2016. The rooms were very clean and the owners very friendly. Can't beat the price! No it's not the Ritz, but in this neck of the woods do you really expect that?

And I mean that in the best possible way... I've had two stays at the Dinner Bell Motel as a part of scuba diving trips. On the weekends, it seems like this place is pretty packed with divers. The hotel is older and so are the furnishings, but, importantly, everything is serviceable and super clean. There are fridges in the...
