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...

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...

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...

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...

We are terribly sorry that your daughter did not feel comfortable in our rooms, but we take great pride in our housekeeping. By the time she visited, we had already begun our renovation. Our carpeting and paint was new, but we were still waiting on the new bedding and some final touches. If there were any bugs it was probably...

Booked this property online for a one night stay with 2 other couples. Arrived early evening. Lobby smelled heavily of curry to the point I had to go outside for fresh air. Property is not kept up, rooms smell musty, bathrooms were disgusting with dirty grout, broken mirror, and more, too many to points to mention. Left and moved our...

On our recent visit to Bradford PA, we stayed at this motel for 4 nights and found the accomodations clean and comfortable. It's location is within steps of restaurants and shopping.

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...
