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

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! The Inn was very clean and quiet. The desert landscape and wildlife were awesome! Along with Emma, Tilly and Little Cat, the Inn's two... More

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

We stayed for a week in early/mid March, weather was fantastic! Room are very clean, everything you need is here! We stayed in one of the rooms on the end and it is beautiful. Breakfast was simple yet filling, coffee had to be brewed by Linda again though. She does shut down breakfast before 10 and locks the door if... More

My work pace is such that get-away time is a precious commodity. The Juanita cassita at The Inn at Rancho Sonora proved to be the ideal place for my bride of 36 years and I to pause, to savor the southwest beauty with open space, slowed cadence, and abundant wildlife. The grounds are spectacular in both natural beauty typical of... More

This was our 2nd stay. About 4 yrs ago, we stayed for 4 or 5 nights. This year, 2 nights. We had a good stay in the Alamo room last time, but this review is based on this stay, in Clementine. And, sadly, this stay was not as pleasant as the last one. The owner was entirely non-plussed with the... More

onesister, Owner at Rancho Sonora Inn & Casitas, responded to this review

We are constantly working to improve our service and reviews such as this help us in that pursuit. I wish that Glyph Girl CO had come after we installed the new power centers on the desks in each of our rooms and casitas. That would have made the "outlet search" unnecessary. To explain the water issue: We had experienced record... More

I drove by this place for years and never realized it was here. What a charming, quite and quaint place, so glad I finally found it! It's set back a little off the road which makes a great place for rendezvous :) Wonderful and very accomidating staff.
