If you are looking for a relaxed and kicked back RV resort near Florence, AZ, look no further. Nice quiet RV park without a lot of pretense. Great basic service with full hook ups. Most sites are back in...but if you are looking for a pull through site for that big you have".well you just better learn how to back... More

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

We happened on the Rancho Sonora Inn as we were traveling through Arizona. This property is very well maintained, clean and so peaceful! We stayed in one of the Casitas. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for something off the beaten path and want some serenity. Linda, the owner was fabulous! The perfect hostess! Trust me, you... 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

Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay with us. We always welcome the opportunity to improve the experience of our valued guests.

I want to assure you that the air conditioning and refrigerator issues... More

I came during Christmas week to visit my sitter and brother-in-law who are staying at Desert Gardens RV Park. This inn is located right next door. I could easily walk from my room to visit them. I was in the Alamo room; very nicely decorated, extremely comfortable bed, large bathroom, plenty of hot water. I will return!

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay near Florence because we were invited to a wedding at the Windmill Winery. I found the Inn at RS on-line. We had an awesome stay!

If you want a place that is away from crowds but within reach of Phoenix and surrounding area this is the place to make your base. You have a choice of individual rooms or achoice of 3 Casita's to be on your own. The Inn is clean and well kept. Laundry on site. Walmart and Supermarket a few miles away

We enjoyed staying for two nights in this old desert inn. We had the Evangeline/Fernando suite and really liked that we each had our own bathrooms. How often to you get that luxury?! Both bathrooms are clean and nicely appointed with small side tables, handy for laying your brushes, toiletries. Hot water was instant and constant. Lights by the very... More

My husband and I have been searching for a SW Paradise for several years and we finally found it!! The beauty, nature, and peacefulness we discovered at the Rancho Sonora compares only to that of a beach house on the north shore of Oahu, HI. We stayed in the Ilsa Casita. The furnishings were beautiful & comfortable, and the setting... More
