An old school motel in Burlington, Vermont that was super clean, and a 15 minute walk to downtown. Most of the time, places like this are run down, and not very comfortable, but the Bel Aire is certainly an exception. You need to telephone directly to make a reservation, or just show up, if there is a vacancy available. Burlington... More

I emailed the office at the last minute to inquire about a room. The person answered promptly about rooms they had available, answered all my questions, and offered us a few reasonably priced options. We checked in at 8, and we had a mini-fridge, microwave, and queen size bed. It is about a mile from downtown Burlington, and the person... More

We loved our stay here! The room was very clean and comfortable and reasonably-priced, the location extremely convenient to downtown and to a lovely park, the owners super-friendly, and the free office coffee great!! Extra points for being a local business!

Jesse assured me that my room would be ready and because of the time of night I was arriving arrangements were made for me to... More

We absolutely loved this place. It was our first time in Burlington and so glad we found this motel. The rooms were so clean and comfortable for two adults and a child. The owner was so friendly and helped with finding attractions and printed directions for us. It felt like we were visiting family! We will always come back to... More

I love seeing smiling faces after people visit Burlington for the first time. Burlington is unlike anything else, and hard to explain without seeing it first hand. I am very happy you were pleased with our rooms. As you know we are family owned and operated and we pride ourselves on having the cleanest rooms available. Please come visit your... More

Bel Aire Motel was the only affordable place I could find for a last minute vacation stay in Burlington with my parents. We had a room with 2 beds and a sofa bed, perfect for 3 adults. Very clean and quiet. It's really close to Burlington center, you can take your car and park, but walking to center or waterfront... More

As advertised, it's an old motel, the prices are pretty good, and location is perfect, you can walk to church street and be there in 20 minutes. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and the staff is super friendly. The only thing that we didn't like was the funky smell in the room, it seemed like the products they use... More

Thank you for staying with us, and your kind words. We are excited to see you had a good stay with us. To touch upon the odor mentioned, I believe you were staying in a room in which the carpets had just been replaced. I do apologize. On your next travel to Burlington make sure to give us a call,...

TripAdvisor steered me wrong on this one. Room was nothing like how other travelers described. Many reviews describe it as a quaint gem of a motel. It was small and very plain for what the cost. This would have been fine had the room not cost over $100 a night. Defeats the purpose of staying at a motel and very... More

The place was great. The staff were very friendly. The room was a good size and very clean. The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't a full curtain over the window but other than that I enjoyed my stay a lot. I plan to use this place on any return trip to Burlington.

Well located on Shelburn Rd, a quick drive to Church St. You could walk to Church St. in the summer (it is away), or take a 6-7$ Uber ride door-to-door. There is also relatively inexpensive multi-level parking right off Church St. Very accomodating & friendly owners. The rooms are dated, but everything is very clean, and you get great value... More
