“Good value; decent room & service for the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2005

Stayed overnight to do some biking on the C&O canal tow path, this hotel was a decent room for the price (can't expect the Best Western to be the Ritz!) - the room was a good size, quiet, clean, seemed updated; pool area looked nice but we didn't use it, as did the fitness room. You get a coupon good for juice/coffee/muffin or $2 off your order in the restaurant onsite. Our breakfast for 2 was about $15 after coupon, my boyfriend didn't like his pancakes, but I liked my french toast. Overall it was a decent place to stay for the price and only ~ 4-5 miles down the highway from Cumberland.

My family stayed at the Best Western for 1 night in April 2005. We had 2 queen beds. The hotel was nice, but nothing spectacular. Nothing was wrong for that matter. The decor was fine. The rooms had wireless internet access which was nice. The rate was OK and the staff fine. The pool area is extra nice. They had a hot-tub but I did not use it. I thought the included breakfast was rather skimpy. I got a coupon for a juice, coffee, and toast or pastry for the restaurant on the property. We skipped because we wanted a real breakfast. I would recommend staying here as the rooms are nice and the atmosphere is nice. Nothing great, but nothing bad either.

We stayed at the Braddock while passing through to another destination. We were very pleased with everything. the rooms were clean and had an excellent choice of TV channels for children and adults. The shower massage was wonderful! the indoor heated pool is large and very attractive. The hot tub was being replaced and although we did not get to use it, when it is complete it will be beautiful. The free breakfast offered a very nice choice of items, even healthy options, and was served in an actual restaurant. the exercise facilities were also top notch. Excellent bargain.

We visit the Lavale Best Western a couple of times a year. It is a great weekend getaway. The hotel is very well maintained. There is a mountain stream running beside the hotel. You can sit on the swing and watch the water and your tension rush on by. The hotel offers year round swimming with the indoor pool. There is a nice resturant on-site and a seperate bar area. Across the street is The Bowler. The Bowler is a very well maintained bowlind alley that also offers 2- 8' pool tables. The staff of The Bowler has always been very friendly. We even know one of the pin setters by name now. The bowler is very family oriented. Beside The Bowler (in season) is a Putt Putt Golf course. The hotel is about 5 miles from downtown Cumberland. Cumberland offers a steam engine train that has a 40 mile trip. Very nice. Beside the restored train station is the northern most point of the C&O canel. Very historic.Highly recommend this for weekend getaway. Very nice. Spend $300-$400 and feel like a million. Very relaxing.

This motel appears to be about 30 years old, with comfortable rooms, a large and very well maintained indoor swimming pool with adjacent hot tub, and a friendly, helpful staff. Nothing incredible, but no surprise is a nice surprise. We enjoyed our stay and found enough to do in the Cumberland area that we extended for a second night.
