I've seen a few bad reviews for this place (after I booked) and honestly I was surprised. Yes it's on a highway so you do get that noise, but it wasn't overly intrusive. My bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the housekeeping staff kept it that way. The walls were a bit thin and you could hear TVS in other rooms but again, not over the top.
Breakfast was just cereal and pastries, and coffee, pretty much standard in motels around the States.
The pool was great!

The hotel was unique. The room was small. the bed very soft an old. The carpets were dirty and needed vacuuming. The bathroom was very small and hot water was non-existant. The hotel and the town did have character and with a little work could be something very special.

On a recent road trip we stayed at the Jamestown Railtown Motel. It was a nice motel for a traveler. The room and grounds was nice and clean. There is a pool. There is not a coffee maker in the room but you can walk down to the office and get a cup of coffee. The room rate was reasonable and it is in walking distance to the main street of town.

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
