Trip Advisor Below average/dishonest

If you're staying at this hotel, hopefully you won't need wifi, because it works very very poorly....and pay for everything with a credit card or check, because I paid my pet fee in cash and they said I didn't....and then charged mycredit card. I'll never stay there again.

Trip Advisor Overnight stay

We spend an overnight at this hotel. The room was clean and spacious. The location was great - close to the main highway and restaurants. The breakfast was ok. I wish more fruit was offered. Overall it was a good stay.

Trip Advisor Lucked out with Upgrades !

We went to the Best Western Braddock Motor Inn in LaVale Md. for 2 nights Oct. 10th & 11th. When we originally made our reservations, we could only get a smoking room with interior view. Neither I or my wife are smokers but we had purchased tickets for the Western Md.Train ride for the fall colors (which I highly recommend !) so we had to have a room. Everywhere we called was booked up solid in Cumberland where the train ride's located, and Lavale is only 5-6 mi.west past Cumberland on Rt 68. Dreading the thought of staying in a smelly smoking room for our vacation was more than I could bare, so I called up the next day to see if they had any cancelations. As luck had it they did so we got a nonsmoking pet free room ( yes , they allow pets also) . When we arrived the room was nice, had a little bit of a chemical smell to it, but it was clean . We had been told we would have a mountain view but the windows opened to a inside view to the pool area. We decided we wouldn't say anything, just grateful for a nice room. When it came time to turn on the AC/heater it didn't work so we called the front desk and the attendent came to our room to see if she could fix it. It wouldn't come on so she put us in a suite they apparently reserve for the CSX railroad company at no extra charge, Nice ! ;-} This room had a seperate living room with TV and fold out couch and lounge chair with windows that looked inward to a view of the pool area, a nice size bathroom and a bedroom "with a parking lot/ mountain view" and another TV . The room was very clean an no smells at all . The only thing I found was the last occupents had forgot to remove there old coffee filter and grounds from the coffee maker. I recommend the restaurant that is part of the hotel ( though not structurally connected to the hotel) which we went to that night for a late meal . The pool & Jacuzzi looked nice and clean but I dodn't use them. The Continental breakfast was good with eggs and sausage, hash browns and bisquits and gravy and all the usual stuff ( cereal, bagels, muffins, a waffle maker, etc...) The area where the smoking rooms were was really smoky smelling in the hall ways, so I can only imagine what the rooms must have smelled like, and I'm glad we didn't stay in them. All-in-all a nice experiance with a great ending.

Trip Advisor Clean room-comfortable bed

The room was clean and smelled ok and the bed was comfortable. The only complaint was the shower curtain smelled very musty and made the bathroom smell a little, but it was clean.Breakfast was good-eggs,sausage,waffles,muffins,apples.My advice is to make sure when you check in you find out how to get to the lobby from your room.We used an entrance closer to our room on the first floor, when we tried to finbd the lobby,we were lost. The sign in the hallway said lobby with arrow pointing to the right,we walked down the hall to find a sign that said lobby with arrow to the left. Finally we asked another quest and she told us there was a door that lead to steps to go upstairs to lobby.(no sign on door that says "to lobby"

Enjoyed sitting outside it had a fire pit and swings. The hot tub was nice. The room was good for the price. The hotel seemed clean. Staff very helpful. It was very close off the main highway. Would definitely stay there again.
