Located in downtown Sonora which is a cute town. However if heading to Yosemite it is a bit of a drive (1 hour+), in future I would stay closer to the park. It is a very basic somewhat outdated hotel, but is was clean. Front desk staff was friendly and responded quickly to concerns. Pool area was nice size and clean. Window AC worked well an kept us cool. Pets are allowed in rooms but thankfully not the pool area. Restaurants, grocery store and gas stations within walking distance. Breakfast was included and was very basic; apples, machine juices, instant hot chocolate, coffee, white bread with jelly or PB, instant oatmeal, mini muffins and milk. We paid just over $100/night which I felt was good value for what we got.

We took our grandsons, ages 4 & 7, to "gold country" for a short vacation. You might think little boys wouldn't like older accommodations where they need to treat the furnishings extra gentle but, per their own words, they LOVED this 166 year old hotel! The room smelled fresh and lovely, not stale like you might think of an old building and the beds were very comfy. There was an old packing/travel chest in our room. To them, it was a TREASURE chest to explore. They loved the waffles, fruit and goodies to fill their hungry tummies. Those waffles and goodies are truly homemade by the owner's wife every morning. YUM! We will definitely be going back. Our grandsons asked if we could take them there again! I cannot imagine a better compliment from little boys for these lovely accommodations. This stay, for me, was a true dream come true. When I was an adolescent, I lived in Sonora for a short time. I used to admire the stateliness of the Gunn House Hotel and wish that some fine day, I could stay there as a guest. Now I can say I have and this stay did not disappoint. One last point, we had a room on the front balcony and other guests mentioned the noise from the street. I am a light sleeper so I usually hear every night time noise around our neighborhood at home. The room air conditioner made just enough white noise sound to prevent me from hearing anything or be awakened at all the 2 nights we stayed. Our last night there was special rocking with our grandsons on that old balcony

This is not your dream Vermont B&B, but you are not paying the price of that either. I stayed in the suite and it was very large and enjoyable. Some say it is not clean, but I disagree. It needs updating for sure, but I really enjoyed my stay. Don't expect home made breakfast with croissants - but do expect a decent room with a gracious host and wife. If you expect to check in early - call ahead on your way in. The doors are sometimes locked and if you don't have the key yet, you could be waiting on the porch a while.

"Great hotel at the price in the heart of downtown"
The resident manager is very accommodating and very professional. The check-in was quick and easy. Parking is enough and there's an overflow parking nearby. The room is clean and has decent amenities. Free breakfast, too.

The Sonora Inn is a charming place. The elevator was adorable, the free breakfast was perfect (waffles, danishes, fruit, juice, toast), those working at the reception desk were very nice. The room was small but adequate for the three of us, the room was nicely appointed, beds were comfortable, shower was hot--all very good for about $100 for the night. We would do it again.

The city boasts the area’s largest historic downtown district, and hosts a variety of festivals throughout the year. Many of Sonora’s buildings date back to the 1800s, including the restored Opera Hall, built in 1885.
