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....

Hello once again and thank you for your kind review! I know you especially enjoyed our Yosemite room--on the first floor with the comfortable patio, Jacuzzi tub and large king-sized bed. I'm glad that you enjoyed visiting (and visited often when your business trips required you to come to this area). It's always a pleasure to welcome guests here. Eli

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.

I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at the Bradford Place Inn. It's a pity that you didn't tell me something when you were here so I could have helped you to feel more comfortable. Regarding disconnects, I am completely at a loss, the pictures are actual pictures from the inn and show exactly what you will receive here.

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...

I'm truly sorry that you felt this way on your visit to the Bradford Place Inn.

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.

From the tailored rooms, quietly musical surrounding of the estate, to the host's Eli tailoring of a home-cooked skillet breakfast we loved each hour spent in Sonora and day-tripping to Yosemite by virtue of this haven in the foothills.
