I am going to be nice and all I am going to say is "stay away". I will admit I look for cheap motel/hotels when I am travelling and I have stayed in cheaper. This place was terrible as indicated, it was very dirty and by dirty I mean the walls were dirty, and although I am not an electrician,... More

We booked a package (2 nights and the Agawa Canyon train trip). We only wanted the room to sleep in really. Unfortunately the first night we were woken up at 1 am and got little or no sleep after that. Not wanting to get too Orwellian with you, get as far away from room 101 as you can, It isn't... More

This motel is in a good location but desperately needs some updates. You can still borrow or rent VHS movies and play them in your room. The room was relatively clean and the beds ok for comfort. The walls seem paper thin and we had the enjoyment of a very inconsiderate couple checking into the room beside us around midnight.... More

Admitted when my husband and I read the negative reviews, we were nervous about our stay here. Being desperate for a room however, we thought we'd trust Expedia and at least check it out. Upon entering our room the air had been turned on for us and was a nice temperature when we got in. The room although a little... More

The owner greeted us with a warm, inviting smile and was very helpful and accommodating, including allowing us a very late check out! The rooms were very clean. Even though we were just passing through, I wanted to stay longer! When my sister had to come back through and stay in The Soo unexpectedly, she stayed at the Bel Air... More

Allowed us late checkout and gave help when I became ill and couldn't leave on time. Friendly owners. This is a one stop motel, good for a nights stay. The restaurant and bar next door, The a Cutting a Edge, had full service reasonable meals. This is a "budget" motel with prices more than expected

The motel is older but is very clean. Basic cable. Fridge and microwave in room. The hosts are very kind. No in room movie selection however the front has a lot if VHS if you so desire. Close to a Tim Hortons. Concrete walls so noise from other guests isnt an issue. Its economic and a good value.

We stayed at the Bel-Air Motel in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario on 2015 May 29. During booking the Hotwire web site told us that the motel was in the same class, 2.5 star, as Holiday Inn Express and Comfort Suites amongst others. This is very misleading. The Bel-Air is about a 1 star place. Pros- The shower worked well. We... More

Our room was equipped with a micro/fridge which is always a help on a road trip. The room, which featured a single queen bed, was very small and cramped, not really suitable for two people. The room was outdated but okay for a one night stay. The staff were very nice and there was a restaurant next door. This place... More
