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? Great location for kayaking on the Rainbow River and right in town very close to restaurants and the highways. It was... More

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... More

The pros: It's quiet, clean, and has comfortable beds. It's a great location, there is a restaurant right next door, and the AC worked great. Our room had a decent sized fridge, not one of those tiny micro-fridges. The cons: our room didn't have a microwave, and they don't have free breakfast. Overall, it's a great place to stay, especially... More

Our room was very clean and inviting. The air conditioner was off when we came in, but it cooled down quickly. Very comfortable beds, nice hot shower and super-quiet. I mention the quiet because the motel is situated right on the street, and I expected noise. Had a great nights sleep.

The motel room had everything needed-comfortable bed, amazingly clean, working refrigerator and A/C. Barbecue area, coin laundry and restaurant all on premises. Price was right. Jimmy and Randy were friendly and helpful. I would stay again.

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. It has an excellent location close to several excellent restaurants and recreational activities. The motel is run by two brothers who were friendly, and very helpful. Even provided us with two brand new hairdryers for the rooms. The rooms themselves are adequate, not luxurious., but they were comfortable. The TV worked well... More
