Didn't realize how centrally located the B&B was until we arrived and were pleasantly surprised. One block off the main road gave me pause as I thought it might be noisy. It wasn't! Like I said, pleasantly surprised. We were able to walk around the downtown area and enjoy the shops/restaurants. The room was a good size and the bed...

The B&B was perfect for our two day romp around the Southern Gold Rush country. Right downtown above the courthouse on a quiet street, it's well located. The house is charming and the hosts very nice. Breakfasts were ample and delicious each day. We were given good recommendations (and coupons for half price) on wine tastings in Murphy's. Our room,...

We absolutely loved our stay at the Bradford Place Inn. The hosts are the nicest folks. The kind of folks you just want to hang out with. The room was lovely and perfect. Gail and Jeff have thought of everything. My husband choose the room due to it having its own patio. The patio is a nice size and private....

The Bradford inn was incredible. The room was lovely, clean and wel appointed. But the highlight were the owners Gail and Jeff. They were so friendly and truly loved their place - as noted by it's appearance. And the breakfast was so delicious ! Apple French toast, omelette, fresh fruit and on our last day a special baked blueberry or...

Stayed two nights at this wonderful Bed and Breakfast. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Our room, even though it was the smallest, my choice because of the value, it's not often that you find a bed and breakfast with such an affordable choice. It was the most comfortable bed and the most well appointed bathroom one...

The owners are two very nice and attentive people. They have owned the Inn since December of 2015. Our room was extremely small with just enough room for two average suit cases. The breakfast was well made and served. To our amazement we were told that guests do not have their beds made each day !! There are three parking...

We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. In your future stays at all bed and breakfasts please keep in mind, it is extremely uncommon for your room to be cleaned/straightened up every day. We respect the guests' privacy and do not enter their rooms unless they specifically request it. For extended stays we do poll the guest...

Because I have a brother who lives in Sonora I have never actually stayed at an inn, hotel or any other type of lodging there. However, since this trip to the hills was so that we could attend a Bad Company concert in Murphys and to celebrate my wife's birthday we decided to make it more of a small vacation...

Jeff and Gail are the most incredible and helpful hosts. They offer a thorough knowledge of things to do in the area, never steering you wrongly. The rooms are fantastic, ours had a claw foot tub which my fiancé loved as well as an attached sun room where I could do a bit of reading. Amenities abound, and the inn...

Wanted a b&b in the heart of town close to restaurants, museums, and shops. Excellent location. Room had all the comforts needed and snacks, movies, and literature was readily available downstairs. Breakfast was superb. Amazing that the time served and choice from menu was available. The new owners had recently taken over and were terrific hosts. Hope to come again.
