Sadly, yuck !!!! Check in was easy and pleasant enough - being mid January it was pretty dead and yet somehow they told us there wouldn't be any upgrades available. We get to our room, which the door pushed open, didn't seemed locked, to find it small sized, smelling like old cigarettes (although no. Smoking sign was there) and outdated.... More

My daughter and I had stayed at this hotel about ten years ago. We've returned to Plymouth many times since then but Brandford Inn & Suites was always closed in the off season. However, when we saw that it is now open during December we were thrilled. It's location directly across from the Wharf and Mayflower 2 is perfect for... More

Had a wonderful stay here for an escape from NY to Plymouth over the Thanksgiving holiday. Tremendous location; literally steps from some of the most historic sites in the country. The room was clean, with the amenities you'd expect; TV, fridge, coffee machine, etc. Attentive and friendly staff, plus awesome waffles for breakfast!

I stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend with my boyfriend. We had a Harbor side room and it was really large, clean and comfortable. The views of the ocean in the morning are pretty amazing. Also the location really can't be beat. It's within walking distance to pretty much everything: Mayflower, Plymouth Rock, Burial Hill, Jenney Grist Mill and tons of... More

There is so much to see in Plymouth and when you stay at the Bradford you are within walking distance of it all. Plus the view of the harbor is spectacular! Although not all rooms have a balcony and harbor view, the harbor is right across the street and there are several benches where one can enjoy the view.

Great location. But dark dismal rooms. Asked for a harbor view, and was given room 104, where the view is totally blocked by a brick wall! Walls are so thin you can hear people sneeze in the next room. Sounds like there is a square dance going on in the room above us, as well as people yelling. The woman... More

We are so sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us. Room 104 is usually only rented out when all other King Harbor views are rented, because of the view.

The location of this places makes it 'very good' rather than 'average'. The rooms were good - very comfortable but we're nothing that special. Though I do recommend staying here because of the view, and being literally right on the water directly across from the Mayflower. That said though, the front desk were exceptionally helpful in storing luggage and ordering... More

The upside is the the property is located on Plymouth Bay with many rooms having great views and is central to downtown, attractions and restaurants. The downside is that it's an exterior corridor hotel and the place is old and dated and on the verge of being unkept. The first room I checked into smelled terribly musty and the front... More
