Beautiful old house with fabulous furnishings. Room was quiet. Bed was very comfortable. Short walk to town, about one block. Kimberly went out of her way to ensure our comfort; from breakfast tomorrow to finding a dry cleaner. Breakfast was delicious and creative. Complaints, none . A real pleasure

I greatly enjoyed my stay. It’s in the perfect location in Sonora, beautifully furnished, and cozy. Breakfast was great, too. And they’re even shipping me some items I left behind. I hope to return someday.

Not seeing any reviews post-March, I worried this inn was closed, but they are open for business and following all safety procedures! Kimberly and Patrick are fantastic hosts - very personable, and they work hard to make sure all guests have a great stay. We were in the Prospector suite - tiny but very comfortable and clean - and with a tranquil private patio with fountain where we spent a lot of blissful time. Don't miss out on breakfast (but perhaps you should plan a light lunch). Inn is walking distance from the town of Sonora but frankly, once you're installed here you might not want to leave! Thank you Kimberly and Patrick for a perfect stay.

Happen to be working in Sonora, CA for 3 days and 2 nights and right next door is the Bradford Place Inn. Hoping they weren't book, I approached the front door and Patrick, the innkeeper, opened the door. He said they had a vacancy and welcomed me in. He and Kim, his wife and co-innkeeper, are a delightful couple that had bought the bed and breakfast during the past couple years. They run a professional yet cordial B & B and earnestly want to get to know their guests. They both share in the maintenance and upkeep of the facility as well as the cooking responsibilities. Fantastic cooking, by the way, friendly interaction and lovely rooms abound. You really cannot find a better place to stay. Facilities-well kept and up to date. Food- OMG. Try the Eggs Benedict-amazing. Blueberry Crisp- to die for. Breakfast skillet-everything was cooked just the way I like it. Friendly- I happen to be staying there on my birthday and Kim and Patrick sang HBD and brought out a candle lit Blueberry Crisp to top off my breakfast. Easy going and easy to talk to. Family-even though Patrick and Kim are the innkeepers, they have 2 sons who were around as well. Both were friendly and very well behaved. Obviously they instill old school family values into their kids. And finally, the last F they get is for Favorite. It is easily my favorite go to place if I ever have to stay in Sonora. Their hospitality is, bar none, unsurpassed. They also have tea, coffee, water, sodas, V-8 and cookies and baked goods available whenever you want. They have historical stuff in the parlor and trinkets you can purchase as well as movies, DVDs, games, anything to keep you entertained if you happen to be ordered by the Governor to shelter in place during a Covid scare. I've stayed at much more expensive places before but The Bradford Place Inn beats them all! So glad I stopped in to see if they had any vacancies and lucky they did.

First time in Sonora and at the Bradford Place Inn. Patrick and Kim were wonderful hosts- making suggestions for activities and places to eat. The breakfasts were exceptional and the room was very clean and comfortable. Parking was no problem and we were in a great location to explore the town on foot. Highly recommend!

From the very moment that we arrived at the Bradford Place Inn, the owners, Patrick and Kim, were hospitable, courteous, and friendly. They approached every task with a smile, and went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Although the Prospector Room is quite small, its location in the Bradford Place Inn provided us with utmost privacy, and the beautiful private patio with the small fountain gave us a sense of luxury and relaxation. In addition, the room and private bathroom were clean and well-maintained. The location of the Bradford Place Inn is ideal for anyone looking to explore the history and charm of Sonora as well as Columbia State Park. It is a perfect place to stop and spend the night on the way to Yosemite as well. We strongly recommend Bradford Place Inn to any individual or couple traveling in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

Nice B&B that is close to the downtown. Sonora is a good place to base oneself to explore both the gold mining country and Yosemite. Owners are quite helpful and friendly, excellent food and a good value.

We had the great pleasure of staying at the Bradford Inn. Right from the start we were happy to stay here because they allow dogs. We were greeted by the owners son and told where we could park. The owners Kim and Patrick were so welcoming and friendly. The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. Our room had a patio that we enjoyed listening to the fountain. We had a delicious breakfast on our patio. The boys in the family loved seeing our dog and were such perfectly friendly and polite young men. We will make sure to return to the inn in the near future just to see them!
