We stayed on Nye. It is just south of Florence about 7 miles. We stayed here instead of staying at the only other local hotel and boy was is a good decision. We had a wedding at the local winery. The landscape and inn is so well taken care of. The owner left us a note for check in and... More

Located about five miles outside of Florence, Az, there is a remarkable desert retreat. This beautiful little Inn was built in the 1930's and has been lovingly maintained. The surroundings are beautiful; cactus, palo verde trees, a fountain, a tile patio, and flowers all accentuate its charming nature. It is quiet and serene, a wonderful escape from the bustle of...

a short drive south of Florence will bring you to this beautiful property. There are 6 rooms surrounding a walled courtyard or three private casitas available. We have stayed in both the Dolores room on the courtyard and the Ilsa (1 bedroom) and Abby (2 bedroom) casitas. The rooms come with an extended continental breakfast and the casitas all have...

We were looking for a place in the desert to view the night sky. This was such a wonderful find! It's quiet, quaint and away from everything! The inn itself is old but everything is wonderfully updated in a way that kept it's rustic charm. Rooms are smallish but immaculate and without the musty smell of some older establishments. Yes,...

Was in Florence last weekend for a wedding. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The grounds were beautiful, surrounded by cactus and other native vegetation. Room was clean and well-appointed. We are so very glad to have spent the weekend at such a cool place with great ambiance. Thanks Linda...you are a fantastic inn keeper!

We stayed at the Inn for 4 days for our daughter's wedding. We found the property to be immaculate and so charming and quaint. Our family members stayed in two of the other casitas, and they were also beautifully decorated and very comfortable! Like home away from home! The desert scenery at this time of year was pretty...looked out the... More

Stayed at the Rancho Sonora recently. It is very quaint and has unique Southwestern décor. Since we basically went for a time of relaxation and warm weather it would have been nice to swim in the pool. It is advertised on their site as a heated pool. It is not and does not look clean. The hot tub is not... More

Good morning CrissyPo. I was pleased to read your kind words about Rancho Sonora Inn, Thank you. As to the shortcomings in the pool area, as you noted, we do not heat the pool in the winter - Dec thru Feb. It has proven to be too costly for the limited demand. I would guess you were here while the... More

Well it's 8 months into the year and this is the first review on Tripadvisor for Rancho Sonora in 2014. There were pros and cons to this experience. Certainly the pale is kind of a historic remnant and very quant. It's about 8 miles south of Florence, out in the well... desert. There isn't anything else of note immediately around... More
