This is an older property, but it seemed like it had a recent refurbish. The room was very clean, but a little empty. No homey stuff laying around. Had a very large flat screen TV and a pool in season. The staff was great and helpful. and the bed was, I think new. Close to Subway and I-90. Outdoor corridors... More

I found it very good and confortable, I arrived in the first morning and they were cleaning my room so I asked for something to do in Missoula and they were very nice with me showing where to eat, drink and where will be the celebrations of Independence Day that night. At 11am when my room was ready I checked-in:... More

This motel is actually ok, especially if you're traveling alone. There are definitely worse places in Missoula. And of the better ones, you'll pay quite a bit more than you should. This is a good compromise for a practical traveler.

Traveling with someone who goes for the cheapest deal possible (and then asks for a Senior Citizen's discount). The Bel Aire Motel is not a "deal" - not in price nor accommodations (welcome to the mid 1980s, and not in a good way). We walked into first "Non Smoking" room - and there was no way it could be considered... More

I am sorry for the smoke experience you had. I did ask if the second room was alright and your response was "it is a slight smell of smoke but nothing we can not tolerate" I also explained I had a room on the second floor but you needed the first. The room was a non-smoking but people do smoke... More

We were in town for a football game and didnt feel like getting taken for $200 + dollars for the short amount of we would be spending in the room. This is an older property that has been nicely maintained on the outside but not so much on the inside. Our room did not have a tub just an old... More

If the guest would have called the front desk they would have been informed that the ac unit was also the heat. They would have been instructed which setting was the heat. The guest did not say anything that night or the next morning More

The stay was great. I was greeted by a woman at the front desk who had too much humor in her, but was very nice. I stayed for four days and everyday my room got cleaned. There was breakfast in the lobby and fresh coffee and fresh juice. The room was clean, even though I did find some writings on... More

We chose this hotel because it looked so clean and well managed from the exterior. The manager berated the employee in front of me and then began to comment on her eating habits - not professional at all. We were charged $55.00 for the room (would have been a fair price if the room was clean). But this room was... More

Gross room very dirty, hated it!! The bathroom had a cracked mirror and 1 tiny bar of soap was all i got. The door creaked and the bed sheets weren't changed and I swear that the white sticky substance on the wall was semen. There was paper covering up what looked like a bullet hole and the place reeked.

The location isn't bad since it's close to downtown. However it's location does not make up for the fact that this is easily in the top 5 for dirtiest/smelliest hotels I've been to. We got 2 rooms for our group. One room smelled like an ashtray and the other was dirty. The wall of our room had multiple mismatched painted... More

I was traveling to Washington and decided to stay at the Bel Aire. It was within walking distance to downtown. The room was nice and the employees were very nice.
