“Horrible Stay, Pictures don't show holes in the wall, etc”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2010

I stayed at this hotel on the weekend and it was awful! It is March and we could not get the heat to work in the room. My friend slept with 5 layers of clothes on to keep warm! There were broken doors, holes in the wall and light switches hanging out of the wall. It also fails to mention that it is right beside a bar so we were unable to park on the same side of the building as our room and were kept up by the loud music, etc right next to us. It gave us the feel that it should be rented out by the hour not the night. I had a shower in the morning and there was only warm water at best and no water pressure. We asked for a room on the other side of the building and were told that was not possible. If we had have known we would have spent the extra $20 and stayed next door at a nice hotel!

My husband and I have stayed here a couple of times in the past couple years while visiting family in Belleville, most recently in April 2009. The beds are clean and comfortable, the rooms are tidy, the staff is kind and the restaurant is decent. It's nothing fancy, but if you're just there a night or two and don't need all the extras (like a pool, or 24 hour room service), Motel 5 is just fine.

Reading some of the older posts on here, I wouldn't have recognized this hotel! The current owners (since 2007 or so) have done a lot to refresh the motel and make it comfortable, and there was no 'riff-raff' (ie drunk men hanging around all hours). I've never felt unsafe any time we've stayed. We will stay here again this coming October, and I'm sure many times after that.

Economical for sure. We got a great deal for one night. The new owners are doing a little updating as they can. The room we were in was ok, not great, but to lay my head down is all I needed. I was treated pleasantly and with respect. The carpet needed cleaning. Overall the room was ok. The price was the best deal I could find in Belleville. It was $65.00 less than the Comfort Inn and allowed my budget to stay on track. I will return to this motel and I will recommend it to anyone who should ask where to stay in Belleville.

We booked our trip in advance and were given a confirmation number. When we arrived there was someone at the desk that was rood and very ignorant. They did not speak english very well and they told us they could not find our reservation. We were quoted one price on the phone and charged $20.00 more than that when we arrived. We requested non-smoking and were given a room that was supposedly non smoking. The room stunk so badly and was filthy. The carpets looked like they have never been cleaned and the bedding was stained. There was hair all over the bathroom and half the light bulbs were burnt out. I guess they keep it dark for a reason. We went to the Best Western the next night and for $10.00 more than we were charged at Motel 5 we had a beautiful clean room and a much nicer stay. The staff was very helpful and polite.

All I can advise anyone wishing to stay in Belleville is to steer clear of Motel 5 and pay the few dollars extra to stay someone else. I really feel lucky that we did not catch anything from our stay that night.

ENTER AT OWN RISK!!!

Okay, where do I start?! The place was a DUMP, capital letter, and if I could I'd make them bold and BIG maybe change the font, as well while I'm at it. It was gross beyond beliefs. There were 5 of us and we all fought for the 2 beach mats on the floor. It was gross, we walked in and there were 3 flies and a moth occupying our room. The place reaked like cigarettes and dirty, the people around us were sketchy old drunks that stood beside our car and door half the night after we came back from clubbing...3am. The bathroom was even worse, filthy yellow bathtub, mirrors were streaked and had dust on them, the beds were uncomfy, blankets were old. The staff was extremely rude, we tried to get out but they refused to refund our money, show their policies, and show our receipt, they even called the police on us because we demanded to see the receipt and policies, even though we asked politely and the person who signed the receipt asked. They jerks and refused to serve us in anyway. The cops tried to refund our money but couldn't and gave us advice for next time. The only the reasons we didn't sleep in the car was because there were 5 of us and all the hotels and b&bs all the way to Napanee were sold out due to the waterfront festival. Lucky us! Seriously, the car would be better and taking a shower in the lake than staying there.
Good luck to all, Belleville is beautifull but if you are thinking of staying at Motel 5, do it at your own risk!!! Also, expect to have your stay ruined OR get DRUNK before you enter. The police also told us you can call you the local police station to ask about the motel/hotel you are staying for advice.
Happy traveling!!!

Rude staff who would not honour the price I had been quoted, dirty room with uncomfortable beds. The room smelled of stale cigarette smoke even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room. Neighbouring rooms partied until well after midnight and the night staff would not do anything about the noise. I would not recommend staying at this poor quality motel in the future.

  • Liked — It has a roof

This palce is perfect if you need a room to stay in for the night. It has one big room with a couch, bed, tv. Pretty basic, but thats all you need. If you are coming down for a night at the bar , perfect. Especially as it is located beside a popular bar and on the main street in belleville. 5 min from the MALL!!!
