Because we have family there, I've been visiting Bradford my whole life. I last stayed at the DeSoto (which this was) in 1996. I suspect most of the bathroom fixtures, and some of the furniture, was there back then, too. The enamel in the bathroom was badly chipped, and the towels were paper thin. If we had been staying during... More

This was a one night stay for us passing through on our way home from a long intense road trip. The location to the highway is excellent as we were on and off the highway in seconds and resumed our trip immediately. There is a gas station, Tim Hortons, convenience store, Burger King and Walmart all within walking distance from... More

Clean, affordable, polite employees. I would stay here again. It's an older place but you can tell that the owners are spending money making improvements. I would rather stay in a smaller older hotel and know that my money is helping a family run business grow. As long as its clean and safe. This place definitely is Support a family... More

We stayed 3 nights here. The owners were very polite and the room was clean. The room had a nice flat-screen TV, a refrigerator and microwave. The beds were clean and comfortable. There is even a small "breakfast" if you want some quick carbs. The place is no frills, but for the price I feel it was worth it. As... More

This is a decent low budget hotel a 5 minute drive from downtown Bradford, on a main road. the location is good, near Walmart and some other shopping and dining. It has an advantage over the high end hotels in downtown Bradford, although it's not as nice, the location is more quiet, and there is a large grassy yard. The... More
