“Great value stay off of I-76”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for one night while traveling along the PA Turnpike. We don't normally plan where we will stay on road trips, but we had our 2 small dogs with us, so I reserved here based on tripadvisor reviews and their pet-friendly policy. The staff was very polite and helpful, starting when I called to make the reservation. The hotel is motel-style with rooms that lead directly to the parking lot. It is an older building, but has been well maintained and updated. The rooms are basic but clean and what you would expect from a more expensive hotel. The bath was updated and the shower had multiple settings in the head. The best part of the stay was the breakfast buffet, which was included in the cost of the room. It was hot and tasty and included a wide variety of hot food as well as a cold bar with cottage cheese, yogurt, and fruit. The wait staff was very pleasant. When we travel through again, we will absolutely stay here. For the price and value Clara's Place can't be beat!

We stopped here for one night. Although the exterior of the property is older, our room was clean and comfortable with some updates. We had a non smoking room and did not notice any odors as mentioned by a previous reviewer. There wre two separate sink areas in the bathroom. That definitely was a nice plus. There was a small refrigerator and microwave in the room as well as a desk and chair. The refrigerator and HVAC were so quiet! Most in room refrigerators and HVAC units wake me up during the night! The hotel offers free WiFi. The breakfast buffet was included in the room rate. The food was fair but the coffee and fresh fruit cocktail was very good. Dining staff were very friendly and attentive. The location of this property is very convenient to the PA Turnpike. We would stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way to Ohio. The bedroom and bathroom were immaculately clean, and I tend to be very picky. The outside of the building seemed worn and older, but the inside was very nice and up-to-date with a comfortable feel. Bed and pillows were much better than I have found at many places, even considering that I have persistent neck pain and need good neck support. The lady at the desk could not have been more accommodating, and the free, hot breakfast the next morning was actually very tasty -- what you would expect to be served at a Perkins or a diner.
The room did not have a bad odor AND I was grateful to find hypoallergenic soap products and cleaners had been used. I have stayed in more expensive hotels and sneezed the whole time because of their perfumed cleaning products, but this was so much nicer.
We did not have to drive far from the turnpike, either -- very convenient for travelers, and I feel that Bedford is safer for families than most of the other turnpike towns in PA, without the truck-stop feel.

Room Tip: We took a ground-floor room close to the parking lot and had no troubles with A/C noise; also, the r...

Pleasant staff, nice economical accommodations. Wore my white socks walking around the room and they stayed clean! Room was comfortable. Free breakfast buffet was great. This is a nice place to stay without breaking the bank.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the front desk person and sent to our room. We had requested a non-smoking room, and it was labelled non-smoking but reeked of recent cigarette smoke. I revisted the front desk and was sent to a second room which stunk of sewage. The third room was OK but a downgrade, 2 double beds instead of a king, no microwave, no fridge. The place has a tired, mistreated look and feel about it. On the positive side, the price is right, the staff is good, and the breakfast was great. The HVAC system was one of the quietest I have experienced. Not so sure about the cleanliness of the rooms and beds.

We have stayed at this hotel twice & both times had a good experience. The rooms are simple, but clean. Its not a fancy or updated hotel. It does include a decent full breakfast at the onsite restaurant. Patrons seem quiet, and just off the PA turnpike.
