Best Western Bradford Inn,Swainsboro
  • 4

    The property and room were acceptable but we were awaken at 3am by giggling girls in front of our room. Sounded like they were checking in. Not sure what was going on at that hour but it sounded like the party was not over yet. We have stayed in many Best Western's and have always had a good experience. I'm hoping this was just a one time occurrence.

    « Fist time with a problem »

    We have stayed here many times and never had a problem until this time, beds were not ok, roaches in the room, odor in the room and something all over the ceiling. I do hope they fix this as this is our go to place to stay when we visit family in swainsboro.

    « Quiet, comfortable and clean »

    The rooms here are extremely clean and I felt vey comfortable here. Checking in was very good and the staff was very friendly and professional. Breakfast was simple and the coffee was hot and good. I can definitely recommend a great stay at the Bradford Inn.

    « Terrible Breakfast, But Clean Room »

    Pros: The room was clean and comfortable and the staff super friendly and helpful. Cons: First, we had a hard time opening our door every single time to get in. Literally had to push a shoulder into to get it open. Not to mention that the door itself was filthy and in desperate need of a paint job. Simple cosmetic maintenance both inside and out would go a long way. Second, the "free breakfast" was terrible. The pancake batter was rancid, the egg beater eggs were gray in color and unappealing, and the yogurt was the bottom of the barrel low fat Walmart brand. Needless to say we went to eat elsewhere. I was on the fence about writting this review because again, the staff was so nice and overall our stay was comfortable. But I really feel like the cost of this place is too high for the value. Maybe the other hotels in Swainsboro are similar and this is the best out of a bad lot? When I looked around, the pricing was similar at other places... maybe if I'm in the area again I'll look someplace in a neighboring town for better deals.


    The room are spacious and clean. Staff members were friendly and helpful through my stay. The property is off the main road so no road noise and quite. The bed was comfortable, the sheet were clean. The free hot breakfast is just icing on the cake .It's a great place to spend the night.

    « Second time a round »

    Second stay but had multiple nights before. Clean, quiet & pretty good all around. Staff is great. I would absolutely stay again. Rooms are nice. Looks like the lobby is being renovated. Can't find anything negative to say. Thanks for a great stay

    « Nice Room »

    Clean Rooms staff was great nicest place to stay in Swainsboro. We stay here when we come from out of town to race and will continue to stay here when we come back for out annual trip. We have stayed here for the past 6 years and have been pleased every trip

    « A night in Swainsboro »

    It was a pleasant stay at Best Western Bradford inn. Hotel rooms are updated and very clean, and hot breakfast is ample for to start my morning. It was close to my family. I Will stay again when I am in the area..

    « I love this Hotel! »

    Every time I stay here I get excellent service, a clean room, and a fair price. The staff always goes out of their way to accommodate me. This is the kind of service one sees at a 5 diamond property not in small town Georgia. I cannot recommend this property enough.

    « Friendly and clean »

    This place was very clean and the staff was friendly. Older hotel but great value. I stayed here due to Statesboro being sold out. I would stay here again. Very small. Decent breakfast. Staff members were all very friendly

    « Hotel staff nice, Facility in need of updating. »

    Arrived on Thursday evening, there were at least 20 men around the parking lot on the phone or hanging out. Granted they were out of town workers but it made it very noisy outside, it remained that way until after 11p.m. The coffee maker didn't work nor did the air conditioner. The mattress was very uncomfortable and clearly very old and worn and the bed scarf had a few red stains and dirty spots on it.

    « Run of the mill »

    This is an old motel that needs lots of improvements. A group of us on Harley's stopped for the night here. The staff is friendly however, it goes down hill after that. We all received rags to clean our bikes from the morning dew and road dirt. The keys to open the doors takes some getting used to but after a few tries it'll open - Yea! Some of the rooms have air conditioners that are not controllable - so bundle up at night.. The breakfast area has seating for about 12 and the food selection is sparse. And finally, some of the rooms had flys that needed to be dealt with before residing in the room!

    « Another great stay with great customer service »

    Another great stay at this BW in Swainsboro. Even with the problem that I had with my card key, the manager made sure that I was able to get in to my room with no problem using a key. They were very nice and will definitely stay again when I'm in the area.

    « Hotel Staff was Great »

    There's only so much the hotel staff can do but I think the owners should invest in better locks for the hotel doors. A fresh coat of paint can brighten a room as well. The towels and bedding were great though.

    « Best Western Swanisboro »

    Very good hotel for the location and time for the event. I was there for two days and the whole time there were bugs everywhere. I was a little disappointed that when room service cleaned the room they left the door open and allowed the bugs to fly in. Other than that, it was a good hotel for the cost and location.

    « Good service and good value »

    The staff at the hotel is friendly and welcoming. They took care of any concerns we had promptly. The room was clean and comfortable and a good value. It is a good and safe location. There appeared to be a lift for the disabled at the pool which we observed from the balcony.

    « Nice clean place to saty »

    Very quiet, clean hotel. Rooms were nice size and not cramped. Both smoking and non smoking rooms available. Helpful courteous staff. If in the area nice place to stay and a great value. The pool was clean and the grounds well kept. a very nice place to stay.

    « Good value for the price »

    My family and I made a last minute decision to stay at this hotel on a Saturday night. The room & property were clean. The staffmemeber at check-in and checkout were very friendly and helpful. We checked in after 10pm and had no problem getting a late 12 noon checkout the next day. Good value for the price

    « Really Great Hotel »

    We arrived with no expectations since we had been staying in BW's for the past 6 days across different states. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. Front desk checked us in immediately, got exactly what I requested over a month ago and front area was pristine. We had a corner room and it was very clean, smelled good and great parking. Breakfast area was excellent. Close to restaurants and stores. Its also close to the Swainsboro Raceway (11minutes) and that was a big deal for us. We'll definitely come back when in the area.

    « Comfortable Hotel in Swainsboro »

    We travel through Georgia quite a bit from Florida to NC straight through, but since we had friends with us, we decided to break the trip up by staying overnight somewhere. Well, as usual, I start researching Tripadvisor for a nice hotel in the Swainsboro area. It lead me to this hotel. Nice curb appeal when we drove up. Front office very small, but that didn't matter too much, as long as the rooms were clean and comfortable. The price was comparable to other hotels. We were satisfied with our stay, clean, comfortable bed, and quiet. The continental breakfast was typical with waffles, eggs, sausage, cereal etc. As usual, I eat cereal and you can't go wrong with that. I am sure if we decide to stay in that area again, we would choose this hotel.

    « Nice »

    Everyone was nice and helpful the rooms was nice and the pool was wonderful the location was nice and cozy The breakfast was wonderful the staff and members always helpful and polite and I will let tell anybody that I had a wonderful stay there

    « Wonderful hotel and staff »

    We had a great visit, the hotel was nice, comfortable and clean. Only problem was the pool wasn't open our entire trip. The reason was the health inspector was out of town, poor planning made for an upset 5 year old. Staff was friendly and breakfast was very nice everyday.

    « Nice place in a pinch »

    The staff was great, they told us about the upcoming events in the town. The hotel was nothing overly fancy, they did have trouble with the credit card machine working but it was new. I'd stay there again if needed. It is a ways from the major highways

    « Good hotel, good service »

    Despite arriving after midnight (been to Augusta for a concert during golf-week, so had to travel to get a decent hotel at a reasonable price), the receptionist was very courteous. Room was fine and beds were comfortable. Only problem was our own fault, we didn't request a non-smoking room on booking and ended up in one that was obviously used by smokers. Breakfast was basic but ok.

    « Nice Hotel »

    Needing a place to stay, I used Trip Advisor to locate the Best Western. The nice surprise was that the clerk told me I had enough points for a free room! We took her up on the offer. She had a little trouble getting the system to cooperate so she called the manager. He approved the deal. The room was good. Breakfast could have been improved. The room was small, and the selection was limited.

    « Enforce the NO SMOKING policy »

    Very frustrating when you are trying to sleep and the people are on the balcony smoking and talking loud. Then around 4-4:30 in the morning the same people are on the balcony smoking and talking loud again.

    « Easy access room and good customer service »

    Enjoyed my stay at this hotel: room was right on the front of the hotel and easy to get to, the room smelled and appeared clean, no major issues with the room or service, except that the bed could be a bit more comfortable - didn't have pillow top. Overall, it was good and I would return again next time i'm in town.

    « Very nice motel »

    Family has been staying here for years.always clean and comfortable.good value for the price.just down the road from down town swainsboro,Walmart and shops many reastrants to chose from.staff is very helpful

    « Ho Hum »

    Quietly back from the road, without a functioning sign to announce its presence, this motel maintains a clean and good enough room and hot breakfast, at an OK coupon rate. Living in the shadow of a newer chain motel nearby, this Best Western needs freshening, attractive landscaping, and an installed roadside sign to promote itself. Friendly staff a plus.

    « Very adequate for overnight »

    Would stay here again, though so much in taxes added to the reasonable rate of $67 brought the bill to $87, within $13 of staying in the B&B in town, which was lovely. The room was clean, and just what we needed for a quick overnight stay halfway to our destination. Breakfast was fairly extensive if not got us to lunchtime. Early morning noisy with guests or cleaning staff...not sure which. Easy find on US#1.

    « Hurricane Matthew a Evacuation »

    We stayed for 3 days and every thing about our stay, staff, breakfast, housekeeping was beyond amazing. Melanie is a ROCKSTAR and every communication from 2 days prior to our arrival to a follow up call on our trip home, she was informative, courteous, attentive and the queen of 5-star service. Special thanks to Kelly for super clean rooms and all items we needed and a great breakfast! Also, appreciate Tyrea and her kindness. ???? Go team!

    « Blessing during evacuation »

    We got caught in the evacuation for Hurricane Matthew and landed at this hotel because they take pets. The king suite provided additional space so we didn't go stir crazy, and there was plenty of room for the dog to play outside. Because they were sold out there was always a run on breakfast and we had to go to McDonalds, but the staff was very accommodating.

    « South Carolina evacuation »

    Wow, MUCH MORE than we expected- the hotel is really nice, everything we need. And the staff was over the top - they came by to check on us yesterday to just make certain everything was ok. Really good decision to stay here. Highly recommended!

    « Nice Property »

    The Bradford Inn is a nice property to stay on you visit to or through Swainsboro. I have stayed at this property in excess of 20 times and it is always very clean. The breakfast is excellent. The personnel are always nice and eager to help in any way they can.

    « fantastic »

    stay here every year on way from FL to NC on our motorcycles... my favorite BW anywhere actually... friendly, small, clean and a great feeling parking our bikes under the carport by front door all night... thanks to melanie and all the crew... see you again

    « Clean, Comfortable nice beds »

    stayed 2 nights. Beds and A/C were great. No restaurant in hotel but the town is not a tourist destination. I was there to work on hunting camp. No elevator to second floor so if you have heavy bags ask for a first floor.

    « Good staff bad hotel »

    The hotel room smell terrible. There were cracks in the wall over the shower. Toilet did not flush well. Breakfast room was not large enough to hold our group while eating. The staff was accommodating and very nice but the hotel overall was terrible. I will not ever stay at this hotel again.

    « Best Motel in the town »

    I frequently came to Swainsboro on my business trip, Best Western is the excellent motel in the town with nice location. Very courteous staff. Good internet access from the room. Good morning breakfast. GM of the motel is always available for any question and ready to help. I enjoy me stay in the motel.

    « One night stay »

    We were travelling from Orlando to Tennessee to meet friends and stayed here for one night. The hotel was very clean, the staff were friendly and breakfast was the usual Best Western and we enjoyed our stay. There is a pretty park adjacent to the hotel and it was good to be able to walk round and stretch our legs after our journey.


    We were traveling thru Swainsboro to another city. We were tired and needed a place for the night. I got online to see what might be offered in this town, and found this Best Western. The pictures looked good (which sometimes are misleading), and the price looked good. So we decided to give it a try. Upon our arrival, the person behind the counter was dealing with another customer, who had some questions. He very politely and kindly answered her questions. She left smiling, because he was so courteous! I paid for the room and we went to go in. The door key would not work, so I went back to the desk and told the man that 5 of us had tried to open the door with both keys and they would not work. He apologized and then rescanned the keys. Then he personally walked around to the room with us to make sure they worked this time. He was very friendly and talked with us as we walked to the room. The room was clean and looked pretty much just like the picture. The hotel was full, but yet very quiet. We got a good restful sleep that night. The beds were a little more firm than we were use to, but yet they were comfortable enough. There was a nice flat screen tv, microwave and fridge in the room. The bathroom was small but clean. There was a large area where the sink and mirror were. Overall we were very pleased not only with the room, but the service we received. We slept in late, so we did not get to try the breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

    « always good service! »

    I stay at this hotel over any other when in town! for a select service hotel these guys rock! I would put them up against any other select service in the area! Thanks to the Staff and Thanks to MAc for taking care of me as a returning customer!

    « Good hotel, great Service »

    I stay at this hotel at least once a month. they take care of me each and everytime I amhere. for the money this hotel is one of the best in town! the GM and the People at the Desk make you feel as though you are family by recognizing you when you walk through the door.

    « Excellent Motel »

    We have stayed at a lot of motels some fantastic and some not so good but most of the time we stay in Hampton Inns and I must say this motel was as good if not better then Hampton! We wondered what room would look like because of the rate but it was very good! The staff were all polite the room was very clean. We loved the bigger tv in room, breakfast was good for a continental, they had scrambled eggs,sausage, waffles, and lots of everything else! I would give the overall experience as excellent!

    « Swainsboro stay »

    Small town offered few options for overnight visit. This seemed to be the best choice. The best part was we were able to stay close to the office. Being two females traveling alone, this made us feel so much more safe.

    « Great deal for what we needed »

    very nice clean updated room. Pillows were great, bed was a bit hard. We left for several hours for breakfast and lunch to come back mid afternoon to get ready for a wedding. We were very pleased that the room had been attended too, or so we thought. A young man knocked on door from housekeeping stating he wanted to clean bathroom. As the bed was made we hadn't noticed the bathroom. I declined as we're needed to shower and change and did not have a lot of time. So he very politely offered fresh towels and asked if we needed anything. If ever in the area would definitely stay here again.

    « Flea Bites »

    Bites to both feet and back area of my body on my 1st and 2nd night during my stay, I was assigned to another room during my last night, however, damage had already been done. I now have permanent flea bite marks to both of my beautiful feet.

    « Great Hotel - Clean, Comfortable, Convenient »

    In Swainsboro this hotel hits all the marks. I wouldn't stay at any other hotel in town. This hotel is clean and comfortable. It's also very quiet since it's set back from the busy road. We had two rooms, both were extremely clean and comfortable. The location is great. Front desk staff is efficient, nice and professional, especially Mac. Housekeeping staff were also very nice, especially Monica and Misty. Breakfast is excellent with many hot and cold options, but the room can get very crowded. The only issues we had were with the toilet and the internet. Our toilet was not functioning properly, we asked to have it looked at while we were out. When we got back it hadn't been looked at. I had to go to the front desk and ask for a plunger. The internet connectivity for our second room was very poor, I think that's due to the location (room was in the back of the property). Our other room had great connectivity. On the second night we stayed there, our bedspread had a large cigarette burn in the center which was easily seen. While we didn't appreciate the hole, the bedspread was clean and I could tell it had been freshly laundered that day, the hole was not there on the first night so this indicated to me that they change the spreads daily. They really should discard any damaged bedspreads, but at least I knew it was clean. The swimming pool was already closed for the season, it would have been nice if it was still open since the temps were in the '80s. I don't know if there was a fitness center, no one told me if there was one. Next time I'm in Swainsboro on business I will stay there again.

    « Nice hotel - Problems »

    The hotel was nice and clean, stayed there because my son goes to GA Southern and could not get a hotel closer...however the check in staff was not very friendly and the over charged us for nights not stayed there...

    « Great stay »

    Have stayed here several times before and it is always clean and comfortable. Air conditioning works like it should and beds are comfortable. Staff is always friendly and helpful. I have no idea what else to say but I have to have 2 0 0 characters

    « Excellent place to stay! »

    This hotel is very affordable, clean hotel and the staff treated us very good! It would have been nice, since we were on the second level to have had an elevator because we were there for the weekend and our luggage was kind of heavy; but all in all the hotel is an excellent chain.

    average room,fitness center off site not as advertised. Breakfast was ok. Lady was very helpful so that we could get our food. pool was great for kids but closed at 9 pm so they couldn't swim long. Location was off beaten path, hard to get to. Not enough choices in area for a sit down meal. Plenty of fast food choices
