When I arrived on Tues, Feb 17, at 9:30 PM after working a full day, then driving 2 1/2 hours to get there, the office was locked. I had to continually re-dial the night number as posted on the door, for at least 20 min. until a sleepy woman finally answered the phone and came to let me in. No... More

We arrived in Missoula, Mt. without making previous reservations, our bad. Unkown to us, it was 'move in' weekend for the state college in town so most everything was booked solid. The Bel Aire had a vacancy so out of desperation, we stopped and checked in. The firest room they gave us was a non-smoking room. Being an ex-smoker, I... More

I don't know if we were given the worst room in the Bel Aire - but it was one of the worst rooms I've stayed in: there were 3 holes in the bathroom door; 2 holes in walls; the bathroom fan was seriously clogged with dirt, and partially hanging from the ceiling; the bathub/shower drain was so clogged it barely...

We stay at this motel on motorcycle trips. The price is right and we can park our bikes outside the rooms which is important for us. No lobby or elevators to contend with. Be sure to check the room's air conditioning system type when booking. Some of the rooms have built in A/C which is not really that functional. If... More

Oh boy!! We read reviews prior to staying and felt we were getting a good room at a reasonable price. We were exhausted upon arrival and just planned on hopping in to bed. When pulling back sheets we were grossed out by a large blood stain. Gross. I went to front desk to request sheets and was told she would... More

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

Denise B, General Manager at Bel Aire Motel, responded to this review

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
