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...

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,...

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...

We stayed here last year on our way to our Annual Family reunion north of Baltimore as a halfway point between Richmond, VA on Friday night.

“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)”
