This place was our last option as we found many of the larger hotels were all booked due to local festivities we weren't aware of. I asked for a non-smoking room but as we approached the door I was aware it was indeed a smoking room. There were 3 ashtrays inside and the room smelled awful. The room was actually... More

If the room had so called bed bugs and smelled awful, why didn't they report it to management the next day. The rooms are cleaned every day and I personally (owner) , Kathy Pings , check the rooms after they are cleaned by the housekeepers. We do not put bedding on the beds with stains and burn holes. By the... More

I stayed here in for a week in 2010 for a BFL regional and chose to stay again when we returned this year. The rooms are on the small side and have dated decor but overall in good shape and as clean as any place I have ever stayed at any price point. The chairs in front of the room... More

The furnishings and décor are old, but it is very clean and I highly recommend it is you are looking for a homey room in a small motel. I live in the area and always recommend it to... More

We stayed here last year on our way to our Annual Family reunion north of Baltimore as a halfway point between Richmond, VA on Friday night. We've decided to make it our annual family tradition to stay here every year... We love this place! It is quirky, just like us! The staff here is super friendly. Make sure you go... More

We stayed at this motel on our way down from Philadelphia to Virginia via as many non-interstate roads as possible. This is a little gem of a 50's style hotel on 301. The room was clean and well maintained with some seriously retro decor. there is a nice sized mini fridge and a microwave in the room, which a lot... More

This motel was very clean. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The room literally looks like nothing has changed since the 1970s or even earlier!. Colors, heater and everything still resemble something you'd see out of that decade. Was very clean though. The 'lobby' was filled with plants and cats along with a couple other small animals, it was interesting and... More

We always stay at the Bel Alton, Very clean and nice friendly staff. The price is right. They have a big pool. Love all the birds and hummingbirds they have. About 10 hummers fighting for a feeder outside are room. Loved watching them. She fills the feeder 4 times a day. Just down the road is La Plata Maryland.
