Could not understand what office was saying. Paid 50 for night and that over priced. The room smelled so bad that we left the door open for at least 30 min. We threw the spread off the bed. We slept in our cloths. The bathroom floor looked like it was rotting out. The room was dusty and looked like it... More

The Bel Aire is the best inexpensive motel I have ever stayed in; clean, quiet, and thoroughly comfortable and cheerful. The art on the walls is good (that's a rarity even in expensive motels) and the feeling of the place is that it has been cared for, not slapped together. Highly recommended.
