I was in the area recently doing timber appraisal work and stayed for several nights at motel. Since I own my own company, I am always looking for a simple, clean, and quiet place to stay. The local owner was very nice and helpful. I really appreciated that my room AC was running and room cooled when I checked in. Room and bathroom were very clean. Older motel, built very well. Outside noise was never an issue. Complimentary WiFi and phone usage was a plus since I had horrible cell phone service in the area. Great location and area. It was a shame I was working long days, never was able to enjoy being so close to the beach. I highly recommend the Dixie Belle for anyone looking for a very nice, quiet, clean, and reasonably priced place to stay in the area.

Stayed: October 2013, travelled on business

I'm so pleased that we were able to give you the amenities you needed. We cater to fishermen but often have business people and working men and hope we provide what you need at good prices. Thanks.

I needed a reasonable place to stay in town for real estate shopping. I scoped out all in-town accommodations & rates. DB was exactly what I was looking for. Even when I can afford ‘pricier’, I always prefer a clean little place where I can park my car at my door, no frills, private, local-owned (not corporate). Our room was quiet, VERY CLEAN, had everything we needed. Comfortable bed, fridge, microwave, a good TV, clean bathroom, new A/C unit and even a little place to sit & smoke right outside our door. Sept 2013. S. Kay
When I come back I can save the time & energy looking at options … I’m heading straight to Dixie Belle!

We went down for an 'ole Florida trip, ate and stayed at several mom and pop places, those places that we are losing coming and going. We stayed here on a Saturday night, enjoyed sitting outside and chatting with other travelers. Place was clean, colorful, beds were comfy. No frills or fluffs. It was also quiet considering it is on the main highway 98. We would stay again.

One of the benefits of staying at a Mom & Pop is the camaraderie between guests. They tend to be like minded people and the atmosphere is generally conducive to socializing. Our deck and charcoal grill is a popular gathering spot.

We went to Port St. Joe for a quick weekend, just as a getaway and attend the Scallop and Music Fest. We wanted a clean place to sleep and shower, we didn't need a pool, fitness room, and conference rooms. The Dixie Belle fit the bill. We stayed in room 10, which is a king bed room. The bed was more comfy than I was anticipating, which was a very pleasant surprise. We had neighbors that we never heard while inside our room, the walls were nice and quiet. Housekeeping kept us supplied in clean linens; the shower had a near endless supply of hot water (with good water pressure, yay!) The lady at the desk was a bit brusque, but not offensively so. She was able to tell us about the area restaurants and what to anticipate with the Festival. All in all we will definitely come back when we need another simple weekend trip!

It always pleases me when people have a good experience at the Dixie Belle. As for my
brusqueness, I apologize. At age 70 taking the Jersey out of this Jersey girl is difficult.

Thanks for your appreciation of our efforts to give you clean, comfortable accommodations in Port St Joe. As for the brown water, the unrelenting downpours have churned up the silt from the bottom of the bay. If we ever get 5-7 clear days our water will return to it's clear beautiful blue.
