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.



Trip Advisor Pay for mistakes
Dec 09, 2014 by: Winston W from Harrisonburg, United States
During our first visit to the web site we made a reservation that was 1 day too early by mistake. Later, we reserved two more rooms for family members for the correct dates. When we arrived, we were told we were charged as no shows for the first room for the night before and would still have to pay for all three rooms this night. We were told we made the mistake not them so we still had to pay. Also, we were given a room that had the HV A/C turned off so the room was in the low 50's when we moved in.

Great hotel ! Fell in love with this hotel when we started to come to LaVale 2 years ago! Great staff and great location! Beautiful scenery both in the summer and winter! Close to many attractions including The Rocky Gap Casino and Golf course! The people in this area are very nice and friendly and make you feel at home!
