It would be hard to find a worse motel than this one. The room stank of cigarrette smoke so badly I had to leave the door open a lot of the time. The sheets and pillowcases were unwashed as well, they were possibly on to their third occupant. The fridge didn't work properly, it froze my drink. The carpet was...

Convenient to downtown. The clerk was very nice and helpful. The room was older, clean, pretty basic to match the budget price. Coffee and pastries were available in the office, but it did not open until 8:00. I needed to do laundry and it was locked at night and not open until the clerk arrived. I tried calling the number...

Was one of the more reasonable priced places, but a bit noisy. Anything on that end of town would have been noisy from the trains, but also there was an arguing couple later in the evening a few doors down and it was quite audible in my room. A bit stuffy, only window does not open, so only air option...

For a short stop, the location was perfect and the price was right. Slept well though would have liked a night stand next to the bed for my phone. Otherwise, the room was spacious, the shower adequate (no tub in #107) and the staff helpful. I chose this place because it would have been possible to walk to the event...

Stayed at this motel 6 years ago and decided to try it out again on our way through. Still a nice, quaint hotel in the downtown core. Room was clean. AC worked well. Beds were comfy. They had coffee, orange juice and pastries for breakfast. Enough to get going in the morning. The motel is in good proximity to Caras...

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...

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...

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...

“Judging by the conversations overheard in the parking lot - this place offers log term rentals - in my experience that's a sign that the quality has reached the point that visitors/travellers aren't lining up to stay there.”

“Get a room with a dedicated A/C unit if your in the heat of the summer. Some rooms have a marginal built in system.”
