We had a delightful time at the Bradford Place Inn and Gardens, and were especially pleased with the welcome offered our large but well behaved dog. We stayed in the Prospector Room, which features its own patio, offering us an extended private area to enjoy ourselves. The room was very comfortable and furnished with everything needed, from air conditioning to... More

Used a living social voucher for the first visit but would not hesitate to return without the discounted price. Eli knocks himself out to make guests comfortable and the breakfasts are amazingly yummy. Being in Sonora in the summer means it is hot but the B and B is comfortably air conditioned and even the room has individual controls for... More

I've had the pleasure of visiting the Bradford Place Inn a few times. I especially love to stay in the Yosemite room as it's large, comfortable and quiet. The location is excellent and the Innkeeper is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious--I really enjoyed the Mother Lode skillet--Eli does the potatoes PERFECTLY. Friendly and quaint and just a block from... More

I had the pleasure of spending once a month for almost three years at this wonderful Inn for business. At the peak of my career I would average close to 4000 miles a month driving and over 12 nights in hotels. As you can imagine that gets old pretty quick. Coming to the Bradford Inn was always like coming home.... More

This B & B didn't meet our expectations. There was a disconnect from what we saw on the website, and what we saw in actuality. The environment wasn't very welcoming. The main floor has too much stuff in it--makes it feel cluttered, dusty, and unkempt.

Nice, comfortable bed and breakfast. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. It is located in the quaint historical area. Close by is a movie theater and some nice walking trails and hiking. Breakfast was exceptional!

This inn was immaculate and well run on our previous trips when it was managed by the former owner. From the moment we walked in the door this time it was clear that it is now a differently run inn. Our room was not clean. The bedspread was dirty. The carpet was dirty. The chairs had crumbs on them. Our... More

I'm truly sorry that you felt this way on your visit to the Bradford Place Inn. While it's true that the last owner did not have dogs and I have two friendly dogs, it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone as they are listed on the website as well as the confirmation email which you received. I do not... More

Very comfortable old inn with interesting antiques and player pianos that the owner will be happy to demonstrate for you. Breakfast was awesome!! Be careful - the owner can be too friendly and not leave you to yourselves.
