Trip Advisor Best Western Braddock Motor Inn, LaVale Maryland
Feb 11, 2015 by: Andy K from Batesville, United States
Beds are nice, refrigerator/ microwave in every room, LG flat screen in every room I've been in. I haven't needed to bring my own pillow or anything, b/c the ones the hotel provides are sufficient. Parking is not very good for big trucks like semi and tractor trailers or straight trucks over 40 foot, but regular cars/trucks are fine. There's a small fitness center with elliptical, treadmill, bike, and dumbbell free weights. Also there is a decent sized indoor pool which is double the size of most hotels.

Stay at this location around once a month while travelling for business. Has a lounge and restaurant next door under same ownership that has good food and service. Rooms are decent and for the most part well kept.



Trip Advisor Perfect for our family
Jan 19, 2015 by: Laframabe from Jefferson, Md
We recently stayed here on the eve of my Father's funeral. My 5 sisters and their families also stayed here in preparation for the next day. We were able to gather in the large pool area. The seating and atmosphere was perfect. The kids could swim while the parents gathered and relaxed. We ordered pizzas across the street and spent a wonderful evening together getting caught up. Perfect place for our family.

Trip Advisor A 3-Star Property Trending Upwards
Jan 01, 2015 by: mbj2 from Chattanooga, TN
By this time next year the BW Braddock might well be a 4-Star property, but several features and mishaps drag it down. The good: Welcoming staff, nice amenities (workout room, beautiful pool, sauna), upscale decor (but blemished), availability of single rooms at single room prices, better breakfast than most. The not-so-good: Bare screws, holes, and other scars on otherwise very nicely appointed rooms, draperies falling off the hooks, platinum BW members get a small, cheap bottle of water and a tiny bag of chips. The unacceptable: Sanitation: Breakfast room attendant was restocking bread items and fruit with bare hands, making me avoid the nice pool and sauna for fear of disregard for sanitation; the stench--not just smell, but stench--of fresh and stale smoke wafted up open two-story interior corridor to the non-smoking rooms. I mentioned the "unacceptables" to the front desk managers, who said 1) by next year the property would be smoke-free, and 2) the kitchen room staff would be told to wear gloves. My comment on this is that wearing gloves would not solve the problem if the wearer did not change them after handling germ-laden items or coughing in them as she was doing into her bare hands. Despite my concerns, which I noticed on the way to WV, I returned to this place on my way home. I just avoided the breakfast, pool, and sauna and also held my breath in the halls and at the entrance, where smokers hovered around the ash trays placed (rather insensitively) right outside the doors. Traveling solo, it was worth the discounted single rate to minimize my expectations. If the owners do what the staff said they would and pay attention to sanitation and decor details, this will be a definite 4 star--and maybe more.
