“Living History Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great hotel, my wife and I are Living Historians portraying people from the Civil War. It is a 4 hour trip from home to Bedford. When we arived the romm was ready for us. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean a neat. The complimentary breakfast was great. The price of the room was very good, and since we stayed for 3 nights that was a plus. This is a yearly event for our group and we will be staying there next year.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the first floor, they do not have an elevator

loved this place, it had everything, great room, great price, comfy bed, outdoor pool, hot pool, fabulous complimentary breakfast. We received a warm reception by the lovely ladies at the desk on arrival and were made to feel most welcome. totally recommend Clara's place!! If you are expecting the Hilton, its probably not for you, but if you are like us and are happy with reasonable pricing combined with friendly, clean and tidy, this is the place!!

We stayed at the Bedford Inn on June 30th, for a layover during a long drive.

A very nice local motel. A little dated, but in great shape. Very friendly staff. The room came with free hot buffet breakfast which was OK, not great, but not bad either. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, and the AC worked well.

This is not a big chain hotel, it's a local "roadside" type place. Kind of retro, kind of quaint. We will definitely stay here again when we're in the area.

We stayed at the Bedford Inn on 7/30/12 based, in large part on prior reviews. The room is shabby and I feared that it was not clean. A prior repair to the bath ceiling was very poorly done. The carpet is stained and did not fit. The furniture is poor and the sheets were so thin that you could watch TV through them. I would deffinately suggest you stay elsewhere.

Hubby and I chose this hotel because of the great reviews! And we plan to choose it over and over again! Beford is one of our favorite (not tooo far from home) places to visit for a short, much needed get-aways; and Bedford Inn Claras Place will be our 'go-to-home-away-from-home' from now on. Super!! Clean!! #1 priority! It's the first hotel in awhile, that i felt comfortable walking around the room in my bare feet (without slippers or booties).. not a stain on the carpet.. and did i say? Clean!! .. and comfy! Nice bedding! Gotta get me one of those waffle blankets :) .. Good towels, and staff super friendly and helpful! If you are a 'high maintenance type person' maybe you should just stay at your Marriotts.. but for 'normal, family type, people' like us, you're not gonna find a better place - and we've tried a few other hotels in Bedford. They were 'okay' but this was over and above in good! clean! comfty! accommodations! Thank you! Clara's Place for a great stay! It was our 37th anniversary and we had a lovely time! with no regets of our choice of hotel. Hope to see you soon! Oh! and the breakfast buffet (included in price of room) was great!

Room Tip: (btw.. we had room 169 .. smoking king, pool side with lovely property surrounding the hotel)

Thank you so much for your nice comments. Bedford Inn Clara's Place is an excellent
location for getaways, reunions, golfing and many other outings from the Pittsburgh area.
Just far enough, but not the long drive. We pride ourselves on our excellent cleanliness and
friendly staff. The outdoor pool and hottub are quite popular this time of year. Thanks again, and hope to see you back soon!

We were on our way home and needed a place to stay the night with our 8 mo old baby. All we needed was one room with a refrigerator(Wife needs to keep baby milk..get my drift?) anyway, The room was $77 a night. When we reserved the room they told us the shower did not work, we took the room anyway. once we entered the room this is how it went

Was clean and dry! only plus.
was very outdated, Full size bed for two adults(sucked), the toilet reservoir didn't hold water, so it ran all night, to flush we had to take the ice bucket thing to fill the reservoir up. the sink stopper didnt work, the a/c was sub-par and got the room cool enough to sleep but my no means comfortable, and finally the biggest headache of all the blinds did not close properly and i had to literally space each horizontal blind out by hand, which still didnt work and let the bright [--] sun right on my face at the crack of dawn!. I told the lady at the front desk this and asked her politely for a discount for the numerous inconveniences and she politely said that is NOT going to happen. I would NOT recommend this place to friends
