The room smelled faintly of cigarette smoke, perhaps from people smoking on the balcony where an ashtray is provided just outside the door and openable window. It wasn't worth asking for a different room, and it didn't horribly affect us, but I think many other guests would have found it unacceptable. The noise IS significant from the very busy downtown...

This was a last minute trip so they only had rooms on the front of the hotel. Wow was highway 49 busy. It was definitely loud but we all slept through. I would recommend ear plugs or a request for a room in the back if you are sensitive to noise. The beds were very comfortable. Just loved this little... More

We stayed at the Gunn House Hotel for one night in July. I stayed with my mother and two young children. Check-in was a breeze. From what I observed, each room in this hotel is a little different from the last. Our second floor room was in the back and was very clean. It even had its own balcony on... More

Being adventurous types, we thought we would pull into Sonora for the evening on our way to Yosemite and inquire about a hotel and restaurant once we got there. To our delight, a nice lady at the museum recommended The Gunn House Hotel. We had passed it on our drive through the main street, so we knew right where to... More

We loved this one. It had so many different areas and alcoves to sit in. Decorated beatifully. Nice pool area. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was to die for. Dozens of different types of muffins, cakes and breads to choose from. Then they make whatever you want to eat.

Our trip to California included 2 nights in Yosemite, which got pulled out from under us. With 3 days to fill before our flight we decided to do CA Route 49, the Gold Rush Route. Because we wanted to do the trip spontaneously we didn't book hotels in advance and ended up the first night in the Sonora area. The... More

The Gunn House Hotel is right in the middle of town. Parking on the right side of the hotel and in the back, up a slight hill. Across the street is a wonderful little Bar and Grill that seemed to be packed every time we went out of the hotel driveway. There is also a Chinese food restaurant across the... More

Booked this hotel for the second time back in March 2013. Asked and got the same room we stayed in last time. Normally we stay in hotels operated by the likes of Best Western, Hilton, Marriott but this privately run hotel is up there with the best. The rooms are quirky to say the least but well looked after and... More

Love the room that we stayed in. We booked the smallest room, but it has a great interior! Enough space if you are passing through. The swimming pool is nice and the allround ambiance of the hotel is old colonial, very nicely done.
