I went back and forth trying to decide if this was the best place for us since honestly, there was concern that the facilities illustrated on the website might be a little too motel-ish and a tad too old lady like for our tastes. Boy, was I wrong. Upon arrival, the building itself reminded me of a well-built historic lodges... More

This hotel/inn from the 1850s maintains its character but includes all the modern amenities. We stayed in the room lovingly referred to as the wine cellar for its location on the lower level on the back side. It was cool in the hot weather, quiet with its thick walls and outside its door was a large covered walkway with antiques... More

What a perfect place to stay. It's as clean as can be and the service is great. It's walking distance to downtown. It would be a bargain at twice the price. We can't wait to go back, and we're planning our next trip.

Great place to stay, very enjoyable. We came in late to find road construction going on in the front near our room.When we got to our room we found a note offering to move us to a bit more expensive room in the back away from the construction free of charge. Very very kind, and homey. The breakfast was yummy!... More

This is a 1850 house restored and renovated into a hotel providing modern amenities without losing its historic charm. The rooms, though small, are with a charming antique decor. Great homemade breakfast including fresh fruits, juices, egg casserole, waffle, cereals, bagels and pastries. Great for spending a couple of nights while visiting Yosemite. Overall love the place.

Arrived during one of the hottest weeks of the year after visiting the zoo at Yosemite. Tired, hot and weary of hoards we arrived at our hotel late. I had called ahead and Dominic made sure we arrived at a cozy and cool place to sleep. Things aren't brand new here, but they are homey and very clean. The breakfast... More

Historic hotel, awesome rooms even though they are small rooms. You feel as if they have a long history behind them, Awesome breakfast, very friendly staff. Love the place. Good for spending a night or two on your way to Yosemite.

This hotel is old and historic, it's definitely not a "cookie cutter" chain hotel. The rooms are unique (I loved the Dutch doors in each room) and has charm pouring out all over the place on the property. Breakfast is made in-house by Shirley, the owner, and is perhaps the best hotel breakfast I've had: two different egg casseroles, at... More

So obviously well cared for with decorations around the property and little quirky signs. The welcome from the reception is first class and the cooked breakfast is unbelievably good. The rooms are large, clean, well appointed. Couldn't a ask for more.

This was the second time at the Gunn House. Rooms are neat and clean with an old time look. Pool is good and close to most rooms. Provided breakfast is one of the best, not your usual fair. Fresh pastries and waffles are available. Staff is friendly and helpful. Within walking distance to down town and a convenient store across... More
