Bellemont is a tiny settlement surrounded by the Kaibab National Forest ten miles west of Flagstaff along Interstate 40 (exit 185), elevation 7,300 feet; it includes a small residential estate, a travel center, several other businesses and a large army depot, in the woods to the south. The town is a good alternative for people wanting to avoid the traffic of Flagstaff, though accommodation is very limited. Volcanic hills rise above the forest in most directions, largest being the San Francisco Peaks to the north; several unpaved tracks lead towards the mountains, one (FR 171) forming a cut-off route to US 180, which reaches the Grand Canyon after 65 miles.
Ten miles west of Flagstaff alongside I-40 (exit 185), Days Inn Bellemont is a small, two story, interior corridor property providing convenient, budget lodging in a peaceful countryside setting; east-facing rooms look out over farmland towards forested hills and the San Francisco Peaks, and the motel is far enough from the interstate for a quiet night's sleep. Meals can be purchased from the nearby Pilot Travel Center, but there are few other facilities in the area. Amenities are cable TV, free continental brekfast, free wi-fi, a fitness center, guest laundry, and some rooms with a refrigerator. Pets are welcome.
