I had stayed here before, so I knew this was a low-budget place but that’s fine. There’s nothing nice about it, it’s just a cheap place to sleep. But this time I walked in, right under their sign that said “VACANCY,” (there were maybe 4 cars in the lot) only to stand at the desk for at least 5 minutes; nobody came (the door bell rang when I walked through it, announcing my presence). I called out “hello, anybody here?” No response. All the while the desk phone rang with call after call. I opened and closed the door again to make the bell ring, then called out again. Finally I heard footsteps upstairs and a man came down- he had been up there the whole time listening to me and the phone- and said “yeah?”, like I was interrupting him. I told him I needed a room and he said “We don’t have any” and turned around to go back upstairs. Even IF your motel is full (which I don’t think it was; he just didn’t want to be bothered, or he didn’t like my long hair) you still show polite attention to a prospective guest, and say “I’m sorry, we’re full, but I could recommend other places.” And turn on your NO VACANCY sign, unless you’re just too damn lazy.

The Bel-Air is walking distance to some downtown Missoula night restaurants, but is badly out of step with current expectations for accomdations. Our room was dirty, dusty and moldy. To cover the scent, a powerful commercial-grade deodorant was placed on the TV cabinet that was found to irritate the throat. The nightstand drawer was full of food -- mainly chunks of crackers and crumbs. The carpet insufficiently vacuumed in all but the most heavily traveled paths. The bedding was very threadbare and contained what appeared to be cigarette holes. The shower/tub was outlined with dark mildew and the sink very slow. For 2 people we received 2 thin, small bath towels and 1 wash cloth. No hand towels. The room provided no plastic drinking cups. No wastepaper basket. Lighting in the room was woefully inadequate. The window looks out onto the exterior walkway that other people pass constantly -- its blind was tattered and askew, making it uncomfortable to read or watch TV in bed. The room had an unplugged refrigerator, but no small, 1 cup coffee maker. The motel does not offer a continental breakfast, which many motels do now -- especially when lacking breakfast options close by. We did find the front desk staff to be friendly. For our accommodation we paid $106.

Thanks again, Bel Aire, for another amazing stay!! As always the staff was extremely, nice, professional, and most helpful! The room was clean as always, and well stocked with supplies. I, usually, stay at the Holiday Inn, but I couldn't get the room I wanted for the price I wanted :( Therefore, I felt like staying at the Bel Aire as I haven't been there in years. I'll, surely, enjoy my best friend's 2018 Graduation (go Griz)!! Thanks again 2 all the friendly and hard-working staff. Your Motel will always be my go 2 Motel for Missoula, MT :)

My son and I stayed at the Belle Aire Motel when we visited University of Montana recently. I selected this motel based on it's location and price. The motel is terrible. Right after we checked in we found the electronic keys didn't work. The front desk said the battery in the lock is probably dead, so they just gave us the hard key. Uh, FIX THE BATTERY! The carpet in the room was dirty with stains and cigarette burns. Yuck! There is no mini fridge, no microwave, and no coffee maker, which we've come to expect as most motels at this price point and below have such amenities. There was no garbage bin in the bathroom. No pen and paper, no literature about Missoula. When we turned on the TV, there were no channels! We called the front desk and they said they need to call the cable company. Later the TV worked, but really? There isn't one big thing that makes this place so terrible, just a million little things. It would be super easy for them to fix all these little things and make this place great. Perhaps someday, if someone actually cares, this place will be nice. For now, avoid it. Stay somewhere else in Missoula.

I have stayed here before, so I wasn't exactly surprised at the condition of the hotel. It is the absolute worst place I have ever stayed. The only reason we booked here was because it is under $100 during a Griz game weekend and I refuse to pay double that for the Motel 6 type places. Anyway, our room did not have towels when we arrived. There is not even a nightstand! It only provides the "bare necessities" and absolutely nothing more. Not even a plastic cup in the bathroom.
