Best Western Braddock Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in LaVale
Reviewed February 26, 2014

My husband and I went to this hotel to get away for the Valentine's Day weekend. It is not far from our house but we like the fact that we can go and sit in the hot tub and relax by the pool. The only thing that I did not like was on Saturdays they allow outside people to rent their facility for birthday partys and you can not get in the pool because of all the children. It was still a nice getaway and we go there any chance we get to get away.

Hotel was nice, pool area was great, staff was rushed and rude. Have stayed there before and staff was much better. I guess maybe they were having a bad day. Will try again one more time, but hoping for a better experience next time.

The hotel was clean and the front desk staff was very helpful. The eggs and sausage was not hot enough and tasted under cooked. The coffee tasted watered down and not strong enough. The food quality was less than the typical food at other hotels. Used to be much better than it now is. I would recommend staying at this hotel but breakfast would be better eaten somewhere else.

I have stayed at the Braddock Best Western many times over the past 15 years, Accommadations have always been good. Great resturant and bar 5 feet away. Bowling alley across highway. Indoor pool, and mountain stream running beside the hotel. I love to sit there and listen to the water. Very clean and good free breakfest

Very disappointed with my stay here. Room was standard and clean (except for the dirty rag that we found hanging on the shower rod). Continental breakfast appeared tasty until we had to run for dear life to the toilet afterwards(avoid the eggs!).

We planned to have an enjoyable day at the pool just lounging around because there isn't much else to do around here on a frigid winter day. Unfortunately, we couldn't even do that because the pool was packed with people due to a birthday party going on. They hold 2 + birthday parties a day on the weekends and there is no place to even sit at the pool area. When I asked when the parties were done so that we could use the pool, I was told basically never from November until March. If you are a local, you will be treated like gold. If you are an actual guest, expect to be treated like an outcast. You can't even get a pool towel. I didn't realize that we would be staying at the local YMCA. The front desk agent, Christy, is as rude as they come and could care less about the guests staying there.

Like other guests stated, the hotel reeks of smoke in certain areas and it it is dated. There was a large amount of trash in the parking lot and dog poo galore in the back area. They do allow dogs but for a $25 fee.

I have stayed here many times in the past since I used to attend school in the area but after this incident I will not be returning. If my children can't use the pool, what is the point of paying extra for a motel with a pool?

Please don't stay here if you expect to use the pool on the weekends, because it isn't going to happen. Every local and their mom will be here celebrating here.

One other thing, the Wi-Fi is very unreliable, especially in the back area of the hotel.

Room Tip: Back rooms are pet rooms and that is where the smoke lingers, even though it is a supposed smoke fre...

Hotel is very nice, interesting layout in the mountains. Staff went out of their way to place Santa gifts to my children in the room while I was with the children. It appeared to them that Santa had figured out what room they would be going to!

Decent value for the price compared to hotels in Cumberland. The room was clean, the bed was fairly comfortable and the staff were nice. We had an issue with the heat not working properly in the first room and were quickly given another room where the heat was fine. The pool was clean, but the hot tub & sauna were out of order. We survived without them. This is not the most modern of facilities but the price is moderate. It wasn't worth paying $40 or more to stay somewhere else for a weekend.
