Trip Advisor overnight
Mar 30, 2015 by: Wandafaye W from washington, United States
Hotel is very accommodating to all your needs. Great times all year long with the indoor pool/hot tub. Best feature it is pet friendly. Stayed here to celebrate an overnight for my birthday. Enjoyed the hot tub and the morning breakfast. Next door to hotel is a restaurant and a bar. You don't need to leave the area. Hotel in the middle of everything from places to eat, malls, auto stores, and on/off the highway.

Trip Advisor busy place but fine for passing through

I was just passing through and needed a place for one night. The rooms here are a good value. The room I was in must have been part of the original motel and they must have built the corridor later on because the window faced the interior hallway and there was no exterior window due to the bathroom in the back of the room. Speaking of the bathroom, it's one of those where sink is outside (but sort of separated from the main room) and the toilet and shower are in a very small room, probably the smallest I have ever seen in a hotel. Everything was very clean and there was a refrigerator and microwave. I also appreciated the numerous outlets near the bed. The wifi seemed to work very well. I never did figure out the thermostat. I would set the heat around 68, it ran fine, then it got hot and I would see that the setpoint was somehow at 84. This happened a couple of times and I had to switch it over to cool mode. This place caters to groups and there happened to be a college baseball team in town. I had no issues with noise though, with the exception of one or two loud banging knocks from across the hall. It was definitely a busy place. My main gripe has to do with the pool area. They have an indoor pool that is larger than most hotels. It appears that they rented it out to do some sort of kids birthday party the day I was there. The place was packed with screaming little kids so I just sat in the hot tub for a while because the main pool was too crowded. They had pizza and drink tables set up on the deck. Sometimes little kids, junk food, and pools don't go well together and my local health department doesn't permit food in pool areas. I guess they're not that strict in western Maryland. In addition to the pool and hot tub, there is a small fitness room that has basic locker room facilities, a sauna, and a tanning bed (!). I went back to the pool later in the evening when it was - thankfully - less crowded. However, it looked like a tornado had been through with chairs and dirty towels scattered all over and there were no clean towels left. I also noticed this time around that the condensation that forms around the skylight above the hot tub drips on you if you're sitting in the right spot. If management reads these reviews, a clock in the pool area would be helpful. Breakfast was pretty good. As I noted, there were a lot college kids in the hotel and the hostess did an outstanding job keeping everything stocked and she was very helpful and polite. Kudos to her for doing an outstanding job. For other meals, there are two restaurants on the property but be warned neither of them are open late in the evenings. I would likely stay here again. Best Westerns are usually pretty decent and this one, despite how busy it was, was a good value.

Trip Advisor Disappointed
Mar 17, 2015 by: msvicki2013 from Charleston, West Virginia
Needs some work and more staff for check in. Hotel had leaks in the lobby during the checkin process. One person doing checkin, answerin the phone and switchboard. Very verbal about not having help. Room was clean and fairly comfortable. Not what I expected from a Best Western Hotel in Marylands.

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.
