3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a very clean and quaint hotel. It has a lovely porch, but it overlooks the main road through town, making it very noisy if you have a room on the street side. Room was comfortable and the breakfast was very good. One thing we noticed was that the office smelled heavily like smoke or someone who smoked.

My wife and I have stayed here at least 5 times. We were married at Union Hill inn in May. The breakfast in the morning is one of the many things that bring me back. I'd request the rooms in the back on the top floor. its a little more quite over there.

If you are looking for a very quaint boutique style hotel, then the Gunn House Hotel is truly for you. My wife and I spent two nights at this fine establishment using it as our base to explore the general area including Jamestown and Columbia. Please remember that this is not a Hilton, and are we glad that it is... More

We have stayed at the Gunn House close to 10 times in the last year. We have stayed in a few different rooms but our favorite is #6. Very quiet and comfortable. Their location is convenient to downtown shopping and dining. Shirley is very approachable and if you have any trouble she will try to fix it. The included breakfast... More

In all our travels across the U.S., this little gem is one of the best hotel we have stayed in. The decor in the rooms is great. Our party had 5 of the rooms and each was differently decorated and really cute. There are many comfortable sitting areas outside the rooms, which I am sorry to say we were unable... More

This will now be our exclusive place to stay when we want to just get away and run to Sonora. We had the upstairs corner room(I think 9?) and loved it. Tastefully restored and updated without compromising the old time feel. I grew up in my grandfathers little farm house, so I love the creaking floors and such. Now we... More

Historic and fun. If you are lucky enough to stay during the wild west Film Fest, but the town was the draw. I love this entire area. So much history was made here. Gold was a draw for thousands of people. Rich history and old buildings are its bread and butter. The Gunn House is centrally located. The bar is... More

This was my second stay at the Gunn House this year to visit relatives who live nearby. Perfect location for exploring old town Sonora. As others have commented, great breakfast. Staff is friendly. Rooms are clean and functional. Be advised there are stairs, uneven walkways and no elevators.

It’s been a few years since I’ve had the time to take a mini-vacation in the fall and I hadn’t seen a college friend in about ten years and over the years I moved to NoCal and she moved to SoCal. Getting together was difficult. We agreed to plan to spend a few days together in November and decided to... More

In June 2014 I booked a room for 2-nights in late October. Unfortunately, a week before I was planning to go, my mother was rushed to the hospital and I had to cancel the trip. I called and cancelled the reservation before the actual date. I called today and asked about the refund and I was told that due to... More
