    « Great hotel in small town »

    We stayed in this hotel for one night on our way to Niagara Falls from Washington, D.C. This hotel is right on the highway. Check-in was fast. They offered free drinks on arrival. There is ample parking. The complimentary breakfast was hot and very good. Rooms were nice and housekeeping was good. Overall a nice hotel.

    « Not up to Best Western standards »

    I booked a mobility accessible room for 2 nights and am appalled at what is installed over the toilet to support a handicapped person. My husband says it's legal and it's bolted to the toilet but both arms jiggle and come up off the floor. Not safe in my opinion. The handicap room is in the farthest corner from the dining room so if we want breakfast we will have to drive to the front because the walk is too long for my husband. Furthermore, there are no laundry facilities available for the guest's use! UNBELIEVABLE!! The woman at the front desk is less than helpful and informed me there is no manager available other than M-F business hours. If we weren't 1,000 miles from home I would change our plans but unfortunately we are trapped for these two nights. Needless to say I will stay far away from this hotel and from Best Westerns in general in the future.

    « Beyond Expectations »

    Impressive lobby entrance, clean rooms, friendly staff ...a great breakfast selection included..went back for a second night's stay after visiting nearby Smethport...would recommend to anyone visiting this area...especially enjoyed the convenience of a free drink and dinner after the scenic trip through upper New York coming from Canada on our first night's stay in Pennsylvania. Bradford is a great stopping location to explore!

    « Getting Better »

    In the past I have not had very many complimentary things to say about this hotel. It was easily the third best in Bradford. Since its recent renovation, the hotel looks much better and the rooms are greatly improved. While this hotel remains my third choice in Bradford, I can recommend it for a brief stay.

    « Updated and Clean »

    This is a great place to stay in or around Bradford. Great value and the rooms are very nice. The breakfast area is large. The location is also in a very good spot with easy access to 219. Would stay again.

    « Beer stolen from the fridge by staff »

    Put a bottle of good European beer in the fridge hoping to have it after a day outdoors (we stayed for 2 nights). When I opened the fridge door in the evening, I found that the beer was gone! Obviously we double-checked everywhere. It was not misplaced by us, it was taken by someone. The only people who had access to the room during our absence were the hotel staff. I complained about the incident to the receptionist, who said they would forward the information to the manager. Next morning, nobody called me or showed up at the door. Finally I walked down and asked for the manager. The manager said he had asked people around and nobody confessed they took something from the fridge (of course they didn't!) and there was nothing he could do. No apologies were given. I must say we have traveled a lot staying at different kinds of hotels and this is the first time something was stolen from our room! I am not concerned about the value of the item. What bothers me is that some dishonest people work there and the management is not doing anything about it. Will never stay at this hotel chain again!

    « Very comfortable and goes the extra mile »

    This Best Western, a hotel chain that we stay in often, went a step above others. Besides the ample complimentary breakfast, we received coupons for complimentary drinks in the lounge. The hotel is located near the heart of historic Bradford, allowing walks around town to see all the beautiful old buildings and houses from the oil discovery days.

    « Did not meet expectations »

    I was told that this hotel was recently renovated, but the rooms did not appear to be "new". There was a strong, musty odor in the room and I had to turn the A/C on in order to get some air in the room even though it was ~55 F outside. The shower filled up to my knees because the water was not draining.

    Very good motel, restaurant food quite tasty & reasonably priced also easy access off Route 219. Near the Antique mall we were interested in visiting, which is also quite nice and worth stopping to see. Very large w/much merchandise to look at.

    « Clean Hotel »

    The room was very clean, and all the amenities (microwave, refrigerator) worked well. I work on my laptop a lot, and the room I was in had two beds, a table and two lounge type chairs, but nowhere to comfortable work on my laptop. The front desk staff was professional and pleasant, and although I felt the room could have been updated, it was clean everyday, and I would recommend this hotel.

    The staff and management at this establishment went to the utmost greatest lengths for me when I lost my purse ... And Found it! The entire staff- maintenance, management, housekeeping, EVERYONE helped me!!! EVERYONE!!! Thankful? - doesn't even begin to describe how I feel! And aside from this incident, the room was very clean and wonderful! I WILL ALWAYS STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!! And thanks so much again to the wonderful manager, MISS DEBBIE!!!

    Very nice Hotel/Motel. Has everything you would need, is conveniently located in Downtown Bradford. A little expensive by about $30 over what it should go for but still worth it. Hotel is very clean, has all the amenities that a traveler might need, AND if they don't have what you need there is a Large Tops Supermarket next door and many local restaurants within walking distance. The place is very safe.

    « Our go to »

    Our daughter goes to Pitt, right there in town. We visit regularly and this is our choice to stay at. We have stayed at the others which are fine but prefer this one. The staff remembers us each time and their longevity tells me they treat their employees well. They remodeled in the lobby, lounge, and breakfast area. It's just beautiful. They did a fantastic job. The rooms are well appointed. The refrigerator and microwave are nice to have. My only complaint is that the beds aren't very comfortable. It could just be me. I get achy when not in my own bed. Our most recent visit, our air conditioner wasn't working properly. They came in and replaced it within an hour. Great service. Mary Beth in the lounge is a great person. We have plenty of opportunity to chat with her on our many visits and look forward to seeing her each time. Also, the food is very good. I have yet to be disappointed with anything I've ordered. Breakfast is incredible with lots of choices. Not your average limited hotel breakfast. I look forward to staying here again in late September. Keep up the good work!

    « Very Friendly »

    As a female traveling alone I was very comfortable in this hotel. All staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was very clean and well kept. The lobby was inviting and the breakfast had many hot and cold options. I definitely would recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues traveling to the area.

    « Great Weekend Getaway »

    This was our first time staying at the BW +. We will stay here again next time we are in Bradford. The grounds and the interior of the hotel are in excellent shape and well taken care of. It makes you feel secure when you drive in and see a hotel that cares about its exterior. The staff is very friendly. All interactions with the front desk, cleaning, bar and breakfast staff were pleasant. You can tell that they take pride in their place of employment. The kids loved the outdoor pool. It was clean and well maintained. Receiving the drink coupons was a nice touch. Breakfast had many choices including eggs, sausage, waffles and fruit. An area to improve would be the bed size which was small and the amount of food in the breakfast bar. The eggs were gone and there was a wait to replenish the bowl. Buy, it was worth the wait because they were excellent.

    « Smoke smell and a little worn but hyper clean! »

    This motel is very clean and pet friendly. The cleaning staff do an exceptional job. The place is slightly worn and there was a strong cigarette smell in the hallway. The lady at the bar was entertaining and nice. The food was great! Our room was hyper clean!

    « Very clean and friendly »

    This hotel is very motorcycle friendly so if you're on a trip it's the place to stop. They let you park your motorcylcle under the pavilion by the front entrance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet has lots of options. I highly recommend.

    « Outstanding Pesonnel »

    An otherwise adequate lodging was turned into a memorable place to stay by the outstanding personnel across the board at this hotel. The check in lady was genuinely friendly, the waitress/bartender in the restaurant was doing it all and still had people laughing despite her workload and the attendant at the next morning's ample breakfast kept the place spotless, again with a smile for everyone, toddle to senior citizen.

    « Basic Stay »

    The staff and everyone were nice. There was an issue with the toilet and someone was sent as soon as I told them. The toilet was "fixed" but later when I flushed it again, it made sounds all night. I feel like they knew there was an issue with the toilet and should not have been put in the room in the first place.

    « Kids Want Pool, Mom Wants Courtesy »

    This is my second review of the Best Western Plus, Bradford Inn and I'm eating my hat because I vowed never to return. My kids requested to stay here this August because they prefer the pool at this motel. This BW+ does have the best outdoor motel pool in town and aside from a bit of grime on the pool's walls, the area is kept up nicely. We had a great time there. Some undeniable "pros" of this establishment: the location, the pool, the drink coupons, the "new" breakfast, the fresh bedding (not the beds-they are too small), and the mini fridge/microwave in the room. I can say after 20 years, this motel has been kept up nicely. Now the cons: The staff! Yikes! As I mentioned in my previous review, I have been staying at this hotel every August for the past 20ish years. At Hilton-equivalent properties (Hampton Inn) I am always welcomed back. Even as a Best Western Rewards member I am never welcomed back and my room requests are inconsistently honored. (I can say that this year that one of my requests was honored.) Since I make these reservations (and requests) months out, it's likely that their system for honoring requests is flawed. When I asked about my requests (a room next to my mom and to be on the ground floor for pool access) this year, the desk representative became snippy and dismissive. "This is a busy weekend, we cannot honor all room requests." This is a well-versed conversation for me at the BW+ Bradford Inn. Could you all even pretend like you are trying to accommodate my requests? I reserved two rooms. When my aunt and mother (67 years old) entered their room on a 89-degree day, they found that the air conditioning unit was not working. How a member from housekeeping did not notice this is surprising to me. The unit was replaced in a quick manner, however this was done right before their eyes. If this were my establishment, I would save my arriving guests from the spectacle of plumber crack and the gaping hole in the window and send them to lunch on me. Of course I heard all about this when I encountered my family at the motel. When I inquired at my own check in I received another clipped response. "Yes, there was a problem, and it was fixed immediately ma'am." (Her clipped tone signaling "this discussion is over"). Too tired to spar and not surprised by a another indignant response from someone at this desk, I collected my keys and left. The bathroom-My kids are pretty independent, but for fear of scalding, I took over control of the shower fixtures for bathing time. They each required a spin in the opposite direct to work. Took me about 5 minutes to get the water right and the tub never really stopped running after I engaged the shower. We encountered ankle-deep water throughout our showers. (I know you will ask in your response, it's room 136.) The smoking hall- I understand that people still smoke. Perhaps try not to co-mingle smokers and non smokers on the same floor. Even at two rooms away we were surprised by the reach of the smoke into the hall and even into our room. On the plus side, I have a 6 and 8 year old who vowed on this trip to never ever pick up a cigarette. So...thanks!? Yes, I will be back next August in spite of my issues with the BW+ Bradford Inn. The good does indeed outweigh the bad. For now all I can do is share my experience, voice my opinion and hope for a few changes and a smiling face behind the front desk next year.

    Oversize, clean rooms. Great bar/restaurant (with attached walk through for easy access in the winter), big outside pool with lots of seating (for the summer) and hot breakfasts (for the mornings). They even had big rectangle TV's. Only neg was the bathroom could have been bigger - but we were fine.

    « Good place to stop »

    Clean rooms, very comfy beds and best free breakfast we have ever had at any Best Western--it tasted homemade. Nice, friendly staff. However, we got security warnings when we tried to use their WiFi, and the bathroom fixtures were old and barely functional.

    « Worth another outstanding review. GREAT place to stay in Bradford! »

    Some years ago, I did a positive review of the Bradford Best Western. I recently stayed there again July 9-10 after visiting Rock City Park near Olean NY and want to reiterate that this is a great place to stay in Bradford. I got to the hotel about 1:30 PM on Saturday 7/9 and would have been happy to wait in the lobby until my room was ready.... but it already was! Wow. I took a dip in the pool and walked to a great restaurant nearby (Beefeaters) later. The BW staff is very accommodating and my room was very comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was great -- I do love getting scrambled eggs and sausage links....then I'm good till I get home to Lock Haven about 2.5 hours later. There is a convenience store across the road (for gas, etc). and a supermarket nearby. The hotel is easy to reach off Route 219 and isn't far from a mall with other eating places, including a Tim Horton's. Best Western is definitely my choice in hotel franchises. Great job! Great hotel!

    « Nice stay for Case Collector Reunion! »

    Had a great time. The hotel is older but up to date, clean and comfortable. The staff was wonderful - very welcoming and helpful. The lounge, lobby and breakfast area have been remodeled and the areas are very pretty! Nice selection for breakfast. Easy access to all sorts of activities and highway. Will stay again!!! Fridge in the room was wonderful to have. Only thing I would suggest is to have larger bathrooms. You can only fit one person in there at a time (at least in the room we had). Not a problem really and it wouldn't deter me from staying again. Pool looked inviting but we did not have time to swim.

    « You Asked »

    Bed to high. Toilet to low. Bed to small for two. Bathroom to jammed for space between tub toilet/sink. Chairs not working in room as they where to big to move around. Could not find main entrance to the building because it was not marked anywhere when you entered the lot. Drove around entire site and then took a chance it was in one of the center doors.

    « Big room, but .... »

    We were in room 129. When we first arrived, the A/C didn't seem to be cooling the room, but it was hot out and the sun was beating down on the room. We closed the blinds and went out for a bit, returned and the room was definitely not cool. The unit was only blowing warmish air. We asked to have maintenance come check it and the nice young man confirmed that it was not working and he replaced the unit with a newly rebuilt one. After that, the room stayed nice and cool. Ground floor rooms have two doors, one on the hall and one on the pool or parking area, depending on which side of the building you were on. Bathroom was very SMALL and DARK with a low ceiling and there was no fan. The carpet in the room seemed dirty. When we had been walking around in the room barefoot and then stepped into the shower, we left dirty footprints. My husband mentioned this to staff when we were checking out. We loved the outdoor pooled and used it daily. Staff was friendly and there were good options for breakfast. We were given two drink coupons upon check-in. Bartender on Friday night, though seemed disinclined to be helpful, though. All in all, we enjoyed our stay.

    « Watch the address or you'll end up lost! »

    Had trouble finding the place - it's 100 Davis Street SOUTH not Davis Street! I'm one of many apparently but the staff don't seem concerned about the problem. More of an issue with Hotwire than Best Western really as my prepayment couldn't be accessed by the hotel, which meant a 40 minute check in . You get a password for the internet but I never did manage to access it. Air con quite noisy and I have never slept in a bed so high. I'm 5'4 and had to literally climb up into it! Having said that the room was clean and comfortable. Bed a little firm for me but pillows v good. Bathroom cramped. Coffee maker was supposed to take pods but they supply coffee bags which didn't work well in the machine. Reception Staff friendly and welcoming as were bar staff and breakfast was continental and ok. Overall not worth the money they charge in my humble opinion

    « Nice stay in Bradford Pa. »

    Although the complementary Internet service was unavailable, the place was clean and I experience a pleasant stay. Construction was going on around the building but since I was away most of the day it did not effect me.

    « Great new lobby/breakfast room/bar remodel with outdoor pool! »

    Last time we stayed, they were in the process of remodeling the lobby/breakfast room/bar. They did a great job! Bed was comfortable. Lots of choice for the breakfast buffet: waffles, scrambled eggs, different meat every day, yogurt, cereals, bananas, hardboiled eggs, packaged pastries, juice, coffee, tea (but I bring my own teabags as I can't do Lipton). Uncharacteristically cool while we were there the 4 days before July 4th so the pool was a little chilly. We like a poolside room on 2nd or 3rd floor to keep our dog from barking at people closing car doors, etc.

    4
    « Great beds! »

    I checked in and was given drink vouchers to use at the lounge. Since it was a long trip and I already had a plastic cup of wine in me, I was going to use them and have dinner, but the menu was depressing and the lounge was dark and depressing too. Sobered up and had dinner elsewhere. The bathroom was small. We didn't end up using the pool. The beds and pillows were heaven. Or maybe I was just really tired. But comparing it to a Comfort Inn the next night, I plan to stick with Best Westerns from now on! It would have been nicer if they offered Queen size beds, as two teenagers and myself create arm wrestling over who's sleeping with who. Breakfast was mediocre.

    « Very Friendly Staff! »

    The staff here is very friendly and accommodating. Stay included a pretty good breakfast and a drink in the lounge. Pool was clean and the temperature was good. Room was clean including the beds and bathroom, although the carpet could use a cleaning. Tub was plugged up bad first day, but they fixed it right away. Room had a door to the hallway and also to outside. They allow motorcycles to park under the entryway which came in very handy during the rain.

    « Better than it looks »

    A dated exterior hid a nicer interior. Room was clean and tidy; no issues. Included fridge. Wifi was good. Breakfast about average. Very nice check in process. The included 2 drink tickets for the bar in the hotel. We could hear 2 different neighbouring room's occupants; one in the main room and a different one in the bathroom.

    « Weary Traveler Rescue »

    I stopped here because my intended destination was 2 1/2 hrs. away. Not only was it a welcome site, it met any and all expectations. The hotel was clean including the rooms. It appears that the check in lobby, the breakfast area, and the fitness center were all a somewhat recent add on. Check in and check out were quick and conducted by courteous personnel. Too was the bartender, the breakfast lady and all others encountered. The room was clean and all linens were fresh and more than adequate. There were a couple of what I would consider quirks. 1. A short person would find the height of the bed challenging. 2. The bathroom mirror is made for a short person. 3. I thought the lighting over the bathroom mirror was poor. I can imagine a woman putting makeup on finding fault. 4. There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom. Overall it was a pleasant, comfortable stay.

    « Thanks for your help »

    Reserved two rooms at the Econo Lodge in town but when we got there it looked so nasty we sat out in the parking lot and started calling other hotels in the area for rooms, Thanks Best Western for hooking us up. Nice place to stay comfortable beds (due to back pain got to sample both to keep from bothering wife with tossing and turning, not the beds fault) Pool was a nice relief after a long day. Got take out from the restaurant and it was all good as was the breakfast the next morning, Two small issues but neither of them where that big of a deal, housekeeping could have done a better job there was trash on the floor and the outside door wouldn't open with the key card but we used the interior door and they came down right away to look at it. Would not hesitate to stay there again if need arose

    Interior is very updated and quite nice. Not what I expected when we drove up. Lobby is beautiful, has on site restaurant/lounge which was nice to have food on property after long drive. Although they don't have happy hour, registration gives you a free drink coupon. Room is nice, updated, granite counter in bathroom and a great value. Recommend staying as you pass through Bradfrod.

    « Stay Here...Nowhere Else! »

    Even though the remodeling is still in progress you really are not aware of it. The staff is congenial and willing to go the extra mile to make their guests happy. I can't say enough about the breakfast buffet. What a great way to start the day with so many choices, something for all ages and dietary concerns. Maybe they could add another tv in the main dining area...The one they have is too far away from most diners. Just a thought.

    As always the staff at the Bradford Best Western did an excellent job meeting my and our crews needs. the only disappointment was the lack of a cooking staff due to some personnel issue's. the girls did their best with what they could do but this is the first time in all the years I stayed I had to go outside the facility to Dine. just a bump in the road that I am sure will corrected on my next visit.

    Great hotel to stay at. Appears to have been recently modernized. The staff were all friendly and the lounge was a bonus. Good place to unwind, watch some tv, converse with the friendly bar tender and have a few nicely priced drinks. They even give you a drink ticket good for 1 free drink upon check in. Stayed for 2 weeks while visiting family in neighboring NY.

    Hotel is older but nice enough. The beds comfortable. The rooms are clean. The town seems to be desperate for commerce, so for this area, this hotel is outstanding. I would stay here again if in the area

    « Gives Bradford a bad name... »

    My partner and I live and work in the Bradford area. On one of our date nights,be decided to check out the newly renovated lounge. We where amazed as we walked through the doors to see such a modern and beautifully designed place right here in our neighborhood! We had high expectations as we took a seat at the bar. It was Memorial Day weekend and the bar area was packed with several tables seated in the dining area as well. The bar tender, finally came over to us and asked what we would like. ( about 10 mins). We received our drinks after waiting about 15 minutes. She apologized and said that she was the only one tending bar, waiting on tables, and cooking! This is ridiculous. It was a holiday weekend and they only had one person to run the entire Food and Beverage Department! I asked why and she said the cook had been fired that day. She said she felt she could handle it and was doing a great job. She was very friendly, but no one no matter how trained they are can give the services that is needed having all these responsibilities! My partner and I have been the Hospitality Business for over 40 years with our experience combined. We bother hold bachelor degrees in Hospitality and are certified Servesafe managers and Hotel Revenue Managers. The space at The Bradford Best Western is absolutely beautiful, but it seems the management is several lacking. I hope that this situation does not happen in the future and that the management has worked things out for the better.

    Quiet location on the 219, not much in the way to see but convenient stop over Apart from the hotel there are no restaurants in the area. Good fro a stop over. Large rooms with a huge bed, good TV connections so fine for one night.

    Although an older hotel, thoroughly updated rooms, breakfast area, exercise room and lobby, clean, good location. If you need a room with a desk, specify it. Competitive price and best option in Bradford... from a seasoned business traveler.

    « High Speed Internet is Flaky and Slow »

    Room was OK except the "FREE High Speed Internet" prominently promoted on the sign on the side of the building and on their web pages would more properly be called "free, flaky, and slow internet". Using the hotel wifi with the password they gave me at the front desk, a lot of web pages and email servers were timing out on me: had to try multiple times to read an email message, had to try multiple times to get a weather web page to load. (For the technical: a bandwidth check using speakeasy.net to D.C. yielded 5 megabits/sec upload and download, but ping showed timeout to several web sites.) The tap water in the hotel tasted a little funny to me, so I avoided it. I'd want a second opinion or a water quality test (given the abundance of fracking in the Bradford area) before drinking their water.

    « Management has work to do!!! »

    The room was nice, the staff was trying to be helpful, but needs guidance. I asked the front desk how to get to a local restaurant that was 1 1/2 blocks away. She could not give accurate directions.Maybe a local map provided by management would help. The staff in the lounge was one woman, she tried really hard to be the barmaid, waitress and clean-up person. She did a great job and was fortunate that all 30+ customers were patient. Management needs to hire an assistant or 2. Then on our check-out day, I went to shower and found brown water coming out of the shower. I brought a glass of the "ginger ale" colored water to the front desk to advise them. They asked what room I was in and stated they were aware and working on it. I went back to my room to get ready for the day. A knock at the door by maintenance followed. I said "Just a minute", then the door was opened. Maintenance almost walked in as I was undressed and the wife was in the bathroom. Lucky for me, I always chain the door. Guy enters looks at the tub and leaves. No comments at all. Staff NEEDS TO BE TRAINED"! What was he looking for? I showed them the water, they had other complaints, There was no reason for him to check our room and he should have known I was there and not to barge right in. We went for breakfast and asked the hostess if they used the same water (wouldn't you?). She had no idea there was a problem at the rest of the hotel. I asked for a cup of hot water for tea and observed clear water. Why I had to ask for hot water I don't know, I had to ask for more for the oatmeal, also. It should be available without asking the hostess. Instead it is behind the counter. The breakfast set-up is not optimal either. Bad traffic flow. You should be able to walk in one direction and get what you need, not set up helter-skelter. The utensils and food are all mixed, they should be more organized. The garbage cans were even improperly placed, They should be by the door or opposite the food, no, they were both on the same wall. Not very appetizing, sanitary or good for traffic flow. When I went to check out, the same 2 employees were at the front desk that were there when I had the water complaint, there was no mention of the water problem. No reason for the problem, no apology for it either. I told them what room I was in when I checked out, so they knew it was me that had the complaint, even if they didn't recognize me. Hello, management?? You have a problem.

    Except for bugs on bed in two rooms, and peeling ceiling, burnt bacon, Average. Response to bugs was we were given the night free, and switched to different rooms. My room that I was switched to now had peeling paint falling down on the bed. Unfortunately the hotel was full and no other rooms available. Breakfast was very nice, except for the only day bacon was served, it was burnt. Cooked oatmeal would have been nice. The Lounge was very nice, it included a free drink pre guest, made me buy one. Bartender was very nice, fun to watch--she talked to guest and kept everyone happy.

    I was visiting Bradford for a weekend and didn't want to impose on my Aunt. I chose the Best Wesrern Plus only because it was closest to my aunt's house. I made my reservation online and had zero problems when checking in. The front desk agent was pleasant and accommodating. The room was very comfortable and above all very clean. The room has a refrigerator, microwave, and single use coffee pot complete with several cups with coffee, sugar, etc. there are plenty of towels, great water pressure and thankfully a hair dryer because I forgot to bring one. The free WiFi was an unexpected plus. They had a breakfast offered downstairs complete with hot eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and all the pastries and muffins one can want. My one complaint, one I addressed at the front desk when I checked out, was the housekeeping staff. On Sunday morning they were standing around in the hall and chit chatting. Now, I'm not talking about a quiet little conversation between coworkers, I am talking about loud back and forth (in a friendly way) joking and laughing. On Sunday morning I don't want to hear the staff kidding around outside my door. This was the one thorn I encountered.

    « Frequent visits to the Bradford Inn »

    I have stayed at the Bradford Inn (Best Western several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed my stays there. The Location is in the renovation process at the moment but with little to no inconvenience to guests. I usually work long hours so when I return it is nice to be greeted by a friendly smiling staff. I frequently have dinner at the restaurant located in the motel and can't say enough about Jo and Mary Beth as they always do an outstanding job greeting their patrons with a smile and give courteous service to all! The entire staff gives the Motel a hometown feel!

    Dude, my room was huuuge. The double beds sat up all nice & high & were uber comfortable. The room alone was worth the visit. THEN, they have a well equipped fitness center (that I had all to myself, as usual) OR you can even go to the Y, 2 blocks away by showing your room key & ID for no charge (You guys should advertise that as a selling point if you read this review ). B/fast was right w/ an attendant, in addition to the food preparer. That was unexpected. Truck parking for several trucks seals the deal. I/door pool would've been nice & a hot tub for the price but you could probably get both at the Y - I'm not sure, I didn't go over there. I will def stay here again on my travels. Good times. Be blessed!

    Would definitely stay again. The beds were very small and not very comfortable. Overall the experience was great.

    I had to stay two nights in Bradford. So the best choice was the Best Western as it was just a mile away from the company. The room was clean and tidy, I would say that the design is a bit old fashioned. You need a ladder to climb in bed.... the room was a bit noisy but when traffic from the road calms down at night it is acceptable. Breakfast is "American" style....

    Traveling into the Pennsylvania area of hills and mountains through windy roads and beautify views it was nice to relax at a Best Western kind of in the middle of nowhere. Make sure you grab a bite to eat in the restaurant/bar area. Good Food great waitress to joke around with. Nice to have someone put a smile on your face.

    « Pay the extra few bucks and get a whirlpool suite »

    We enjoyed our stay here. This isn't the fanciest hotel you'll ever stay in, and Bradford itself is not exactly a thing of beauty, but it was comfortable. For only about $20 more you can get a 2-room whirlpool suite with TONS of room, a fridge, a couple of couches and 2 TV's. Well worth it! Other comparable hotels in more exotic locations would charge you $200 easily for that room, probably more. Marybeth in the bar was entertaining, though perhaps a bit more salty than some customers would be able to handle. (We are not so uptight though, we thought she was fabulous). I have to say, Gordon the night desk guy did strike us as a pretty odd character. He certainly doesn't know the meaning of "have you got any deals?", seems pretty stuck on giving you exactly what he's told to give you. When I asked if they had any suites he gave me a screwed up look on his face and said "Suites? We don't have any SUITES, unless you mean the rooms with the whirlpools.". Well yes guy, that would be a suite, and it's what they're referred to all over the BW website. When we asked if we could have late checkout again he gave us a screwy face and asked "And what would you consider to be late for a checkout". Answering with "Yes, up to an hour beyond is fine" would have been better instead of appearing perplexed by the request. But despite this oddball at the desk, gotta say, good value for the room. My gf enjoyed the whirlpool jets in particular. We'd stay again.

    We stayed here on a Sunday night, since we were in the area to visit Kinzua Bridge State Park and Kinzua Dam the next day. The location was perfect for our purpose. I had made the reservation online, and received the AAA discount which was less than $100. The room was a bargain in addition to being squeaky clean and nicely decorated. We appreciated the fresh smell in the hallways, lacking the stale smoke smell of hotels that allow smoking. It was in a quiet location, but easily accessible to downtown where we walked for dinner. The included breakfast was the typical hot buffet served by many hotels - nothing special, but certainly adequate. All in all, if we are ever in the Bradford area again, this hotel will be our choice with no need to look further

    This hotel was a road stop on our way to Washington, DC. The town was having it's annual fall festival but we didn't have time to check it out. Looked like fun. Lots of great places to visit while in Bradford too. We were greeted warmly by the gal at the front desk. Nice lobby, nice room. Very comfortable and clean. Nice, hot breakfast with lots of variety. Suited us just fine. Good recommendation for dinner at Ed's Steakhouse, just down the street. Local, old fashioned, tasty food.

    This is an older hotel that has been well maintained. The rooms are large and the beds very comfortable. Very convenient location next to a major supermarket and within walking distance of downtown Bradford. The hotel is reasonably quiet although it can be noisy in the morning. Had a room facing elm st, probably quieter on the courtyard/pool side. Free breakfast and restaurant/lounge on premises. Did not try the restaurant and missed the breakfast (9am is a bit early imho). Nice mountain views will fall colors from the room window. Overall a good stay but probably would try the holiday inn or comfort inn if I come back to Bradford.

    We stayed at this hotel because of its accessibility to other points of interest while on our fall getaway. It met our needs and our room was very nice although the bathroom could have been a bit larger. The king size bed was very comfortable although it was VERY high! Our travels took us to the Drake Oil Well area and on to Hearts Content to see the beautiful 400 year old trees. This Best Western was on the way to the Kinzua Bridge area and its location was a convenient stop for the night.

    Returning to Bradford for a visit with family and friends was turned into a delightful experience by the staff at Best Western. From the check-in to the check-out experience of an eight day stay absolutely nothing went awry. The staff that greeted me, cleaned my room, served breakfast, served me in the lounge, and the staff that signed me out was exceptional. I'll stay here again, and again, and again! One teeny "oops" on their part: the bed is HIGH! Ask for a foot stool if you have short legs like I.

    Stayed at this hotel numerous times over the past several years when traveling with different motorcycle groups. On most occasions we really enjoyed our stay. Desk staff were not always the friendliest, but this time were much better. This property is getting dated but is usually clean. However they still only have double verses queen-sized beds. The restaurant/bar is a good place to relax and on our last couple of stays found "Amy" (sorry forgot her real name) to be very friendly and always did do her best to provide great service despite being alone when we (about 20+) arrived in mass for food and drinks.

    Lighting in bath could be increased, and bath fixtures could use a little attention, particularly the soap dish which had been pulled out of the wall, otherwise an excellent experience.
