From the moment of our arrival we were made to feel very welcome. There are complimentary snacks and beverages available at all times and wine in the lounge in the evening, and it was so nice to be able to make a cup of tea or coffee whenever we wanted. There was a choice of breakfast dishes ordered the night before, and when I requested no cheese in my omelette, that was not a problem at all. Carolyn and Bob were happy to advise us where to eat and what to see during our stay and nothing was too much trouble.
We're hoping to be able to go back one day, although it's a long way from the UK.

We where travaling from Virginia Beach to Ontario Canada and found this beautiful B&B in Bradford, Pa. Great place with Carolyn and Bob who where very friendly.

I highly recommend this B&B for travelers who pass close by.

The good: Spacious rooms, accomodating inn keepers, nice breakfast and wine hour in the early evening.

The bad: The road the Inn is on is very loud at most hours of the night with cars screeching by and the street cleaner there to wake you in the morning. The owner seems militant about getting your order for the breakfast so write it down immediately or he'll hover over you till it's done. It smells like smoke but it's unclear who's doing the smoking. Last and most importantly, he yells and belittles his wife LOUDLY and in front of guests, making the stay excruciating and unbearable. They fight and bicker and hate their jobs. If you can stay someplace else, I really would. Plus, the Christmas decor is still up.

We have let this review stand without comment for way too long. We were surprised at the guest's good comments being followed by so many bad ones. We'll take our guest's bad comments in order:

We are located in a town of about 9,000 and are on the corner of 2 residential streets. Traffic can sometimes be a bit heavy in the mornings and evenings, but usually drops off and quiets down after sundown. Unfortunately, Tuesday, AM is street sweeping time during the warmer months, so you may hear them if you are with us over that evening. However, if your room's A/C is on overnight, none of this applies.

We use a menu for our guests' breakfast choices. We offer several entrees each morning along with choices for juices, breads, beverages, etc., and time. We usually fill out our guests menus with them when they check in so we can better serve them in the morning. The overwhelming majority of our guests are pleased to have these choices and with our attention to their desires. We have never court-martialed or shot a single guest over menu issues.

The Inn's interior is smoke free. There is only one smoking area, outside on the front porch. If the front door is open and someone is smoking, you may get a wiff smoke in the front hall, but never in the rooms.

WE DO NOT ARGUE IN FRON OF GUESTS, EVER! Our guest's comment is not true.

WE DO NOT HATE OUR JOBS! Our guest's comment here is also untrue.

All our Christmas decorations come down by mid-January. Our guest must have confused some of our year-round florals with Holiday decorations.

Just got back from the Mountain Laurel Inn in Bradford, PA. My wife and I spent Saturday and Sunday nights for Valentine's Day Weekend. The owners Bob and Carolyn and very friendly and accommodating. They made us a good breakfast each moring and had a evening veggie/snack tray on our second day. They bought a gift certificate for a local restaurant for our first evenings' dinner. The rooms are nice and decorated. The beds are very comfy and soft. We had everything we needed and had a great time. The place is also close to the Seneca Casino in nearby NY and also close to other attractions. We went snow tubiing in Holiday Valley, NY. I would reccommend staying here for couples but not families.

But that didnt mean he needed to take out his bad day on me. The owners are incredibly tactless, unkind, and unaccomadating..... to the point where they obviously don't care if a customer ever comes back or not, they seem to get enough business from first-time customers that they don't care...so here's a warning to all their first-time customers:
unless you want to stay somewhere that smells like smoke, has poor internet, no parking, and have to put up with owners who hate the world, hate you, and think everything is stupid, then I would advise staying elsewhere.

WOW, this appears to be a totally erroneous review! The only solo business guests we accommodated in January, 2009, are long time repeat guests, good business friends, actually. We hosted no new/first time guests!

If this reviewer actually had this bad experience, it was not at our inn.

Please check out the other reviews to verify the high ratings other bonafide guests have given The Mountain Laurel Inn.
