We chose to stay at the Bel Alton for a few reasons. The price was unbeatable for the area and it was literally 3 minutes from the fairgrounds where our event was being held. They also allowed dogs at no charge. As we were going for a dog show, this was ideal! We had a late check in, and after...

The staff is very nice, the rooms are very clean, and its the only place in town with a pool! Its also nice that the flatscreen TVs are so large. Its so homey there, from the kitty cats to the retro vibe. Only place I'll stay in a 40 mile radius!

This is your classic roadside motel. While older and a little dated, which is actually a plus that it still has furnishings and fixtures from ~50 years ago, it's a clean, quiet, and well maintained property. We were enroute from the Carolinas to Maryland and this was perfect. The owner was easy to work with over the phone and check...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. This is an old school motor lodge complete with neon signs, brown carpet, and faux wood paneling. The owners were friendly and welcoming; the room was spotless, comfortable, and, quite obviously, wonderfully dated. This is an excellent place to stay either as a stop-over, or as a destination in its own right with...

I found the Bel Alton Motel by accident many years ago while riding. It is a quiet and clean nostalgic place. the Owner and staff affordable friendly and accommodations are very nice for a litte rest from the road. The benifits for the biker community it that in walking distance is a biker friendly Bar. I now make Apehangers and...

We used to live near the Bel Alton, and have always loved the nostalgic look of the pink and green neon, and the old timey "motor lodge" look of it. This was our first overnight. It WAS retro. The paneling and wallpaper were 'vintage' (tacky, maybe?), but to be honest, the tile work in the bathroom was really pretty.... old,...

I'm sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with the pillows. For future reference, we offer softer pillows upon request. Thank you for your review!

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...

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...

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...

The Bel Alton Motel is reminiscent of another era for sure, but it is a cute older hotel that is well maintained. 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...

“I would say stay in the center of the motel, as the ends bend up towards 301, and you might have a lot of road noise in those rooms (we still had a bit of it in room 12)”
