In some ways, this motel is like many other motels with small rooms, small bathrooms and nothing even close to fancy. But, putting that aside, the room and bathroom is very clean, the bed comfortable, the owners very friendly and helpful with whatever you need. The location is easy to get to, near the center of town with several nice... More

Stayed at the Bel-Aire in late September for one night. We love motels like this - older style, friendly owners, and just more character than the usual chains. Price was reasonable for the area. Close to drive downtown - wish we could have spent another day. Lake Champlain Chocolate factory very close by - that was an interesting stop. Stayed... More

Stop 2 of our New England road trip. We were looking for somewhere cheap with a little character. We succeeded in the latter. I had made my original communication with the team at Bel Aire by email 6 months ago. I explained our needs and was asked whether I would like to confirm. I did. I emailed again a week... More

This place was a pleasant surprise.It was not modern, but it was clean. The shower had great hot water and great water pressure. The greater cat is adorable and the complimentary coffee was delicious. Thanks!

My husband and I stopped here while leaf-peeping. We found it to be fairly convenient for what we wanted to see, which was downtown Burlington and the Shelburne Museum. The room was clean, but small. The lady at the front desk was friendly and pleasant. No coffee in room. Coffee in the office after 8 am. It was very good... More

This motel is in need of some TLC, especially the bathrooms. Expensive for what is provided, no breakfast provided either. Owners are not particularly helpful with things to do. AC unit was very loud.

My aunt and I decided to visit Burlington at the last minute for an overnighter, and Bel Aire Motel was the only place rated decently on Trip Advisor that had rooms still available. I haven't stayed in a motel in many years, but based on what other travelers had reported, I thought that it would suit us fine for one... More

Burlington motels seem overpriced, and in another area this one would be for what you get, but it is reasonable for this area. Typical 1950s-60s design, but clean and the carpet looked new. Room 17 has a queen bed, a fridge and microwave, flat screen tv, adequate bath with a shower stall, hair dryer, but no coffee in the room,... More

The Bel Aire is a very clean, comfortable, and well taken care of motel. The rooms are on the small side but we made do. The owners are friendly and accommodating. We needed to leave a day early and they refunded our money with no problem.

We stayed at this hotel because it was in close proximity to the area of Burlington we wanted to visit. The hotel owners are friendly and helpful. The room we were given was right on the main thoroughfare and we were worried it would be too noisy to sleep, but come around 10 p.m. or so, the traffic subsides and... More
