Sorry, this place just didn't do it for me. I booked into The Gunn House after reading reviews on tripadvisor, but I was somewhat disappointed. I think the place is just ok. The workmanship of the hotel is pretty poor, tiles cracking in the bathrooms because the floors are uneven (and this in the never part of the hotel), wall... More

We were touring the Gold Country with young friends from France who had their one year old with them. Both of our rooms were lovely and ours faced the street but there was little if any noise and it seemed more like a nice house rather than a hotel room. The young family with us had a side room which... More

Very charming little place with pool and excellent breakfast. Must visit when you are in Sonora. Went there with my family and we stayed for one Night while visiting California. Breakfast above standard for these type of motels. Thumbs up from our little family.

This was our second visit to the Gunn House. It is a funky, quirky, good place to spend the night. We take the owner's room, #10, because of the king bed, and the porch overlooking the main street. The bathroom is a converted closet with a sloping floor and a tub that doesn't drain. But the ambience of the room... More

Last summer, my husband and I took a trip up to Sonora from Orange County for a family event. We checked Trip Advisor and decided to stay at the Gunn House Hotel. We were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of services and of the loveliness and cleanliness there. We also had a special request to eat breakfast early as... More

I've stayed in 3 historic hotels in Sonora while travelling for business. The Gunn House Hotel is by far the best. Shirley makes an amazing egg casserole and a variety of coffee cakes and danishes every morning. The coffee is good too. This is truly a historic hotel with the comforts of home. I just hope it's not booked up... More

Thank you Trip Advisor writers for rating this hotel #1! When I was looking for a hotel in Sonora/Angel's Camp area I depended on Trip Advisor reviews! I wasn't disappointed! I had to be in the area for business and I wasn't going to be at the hotel that much, but I wanted to be comfortable in my room when... More

Funky and fun 1850 historic house, with a clean, cool, and bigger-than-expected pool set away from the road(and from prying eyes). Staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay here in Sonora, which has a laid-back charm.

The Gunn house is a neat place to stay with a lot of history. The rooms are nice and old fashion but unlike some B and B's You do not have to share a bathroom. They serve a nice little breakfast of muffins ,cakes, waffles and a egg dish. This is a nice touch we happen to love. The staff... More

We stayed at the Gunn House for three days while we toured the gold country and visited Yosemite National Park. The room was nice and given the buildings age, quite comfortable and well maintained. Everyone wa soo nice. Shirley, the owner, made sure that my daughter and wife had gluten free selections at the breakfast bar and everything there was... More
