This was our first bed and breakfast. We were so glad we chose well! The owners were very polite, friendly, and helpful. I loved all the little details that made it special. Our room, bed, and bathroom were all comfortable, and everything was clean. It was a very short walk to restaurants and unique stores. The breakfast at Bradford Inn... More

The inn keepers warmly welcomed me upon arrival. They gave me a tour of the facility which was very helpful and gave me a good idea of what amenity was available. There were several options for breakfast which I found to be very generous. Many delicious treats were available and included in the inn amenity such as cookies, homemade granola,... More

This inn was the start to a week in CA that included Yosemite and a family wedding in Santa Rosa. What a great way to start...very friendly innkeepers take loving care of this inn and serve a very tasty breakfast.

Jeff and Gail were the perfect hosts! We loved our room (Yosemite Room). The bed was fabulous. It's a very short walk to town to visit quaint shops and restaurants. We were there on a Saturday night when they had the art galleries open and local entertainers played music-simply delightful. The best part was breakfast in the morning-they are excellent... More

I have definitely found my place to stay when visiting my family in Sonora. Comfortable rooms, incredibly nice people, lots of little things done to make my stay more enjoyable. Homemade cookies always available (and delicious!) along with juices, teas, coffee, water, and sodas. Delicious made to order breakfasts. Very accommodating. Very helpful. I can't say enough about the kindness... More

The Bradford Place Inn made me uncomfortable. Unkept landscaping and front porch, broken front gate, and very dirty carpeting inside. Overall first impression gave us the creeps. Once in the room, not so bad, except it smelled like a very old room, which it was. Breakfast good, but cold. Bed was good, and I slept soundly. Some nice touches like... More
