“Nice Clean Cheap Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Got a room for $80. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable.
Breakfast was included and better then average.
Good location to Towson University as well as some others.
Right off 695.
Overall well worth the money.

I was only here for one night. The location was very busy and based on the calls the desk agent was fielding it was sold out for the night and possibly for the entire Memorial Day weekend. Based on conversations of guests a college or colleges were having ceremonies that week as well. The desk agent was very pleasant and fielding calls, questions and check-ins with a smile.
My room was very large. It was a combination of minor recent fixture replacements mixed with older furniture and floor treatments. It appeared that the room had one or two electrical wires running under the carpet from the television-bureau area to under the bed to the far wall. I know I would not do this in my home and hope that is not what the two lines were. With vacuuming the plastic could be rubbed off any wires and be a risk for a fire. They were also in the direct path that had to be walked to get to the desk and easy chair. The room had an excessive smell of cleaning products or some type of masking agent.
The bathroom had the new light fixture, but it appeared that someone put new caulk over rusted old caulk near the tub, floor and along wall edges. The rust and stains that had been covered was already bleeding through.
The bed was comfortable and there was a refrigerator and a microwave in the room.
It was hard to tell if this location was upgrading the property or just putting band-aids on problems as they occurred.
I will return here again in the future to see what is like. I won't be able to come back with my spouse because of the smoke smell in some areas and the over use of chemicals to mask smells in the room itself.

Room Tip: The pool is outside, the restaurant, bar and breakfast area were on the first floor, there were a lo...

Best Western strikes again! It's nothing fancy, it's certainly not a "destination" hotel, but the room was spacious, clean, and well-appointed. The staff couldn't have been nicer, and while it was close to the Baltimore Beltway, it had enough trees around I didn't hear a thing.

If you need a place that's quiet, clean, decent value for the money, and convenient to all points "North" in the Batimore area (Owings Mills, Towson, Reisterstown, etc,) this is the place for you.

My room had a desk, fridge, microwave, flat-screen, and plenty of lamps. A 24/7 exercize room was available although I did not get a chance to check it out. Also, my visit was pre-Memorial day, so I didn't get a chance to check out their pool.

(One small note: the on-premises restaurant (which will deliver for a small fee) is a Pho/Vietnamese restaurant. For me, that's a plus, for other it might not be ...)

We've become big fans of Best Western over the past few years and this property didn't disappoint. The room was huge! We were there for a quick overnight for college visit -- remarked to my husband too bad we weren't there on vacation. Beds were comfy, breakfast options were varied and fresh -- nice gentleman came around and made sure room was kept clean. Will definitely book another stay when in area.

Very nice place. My only complaints would be it took forever for the water in the sink to heat up, no Lifetime Movie Network and the mattresses were very hard. Also the on site restaurant was Vietnamese food of which I do not care for. Had it been American cuisine I would have ate there. Other than that yes i would stay again. The staff was great.
