We had an enjoyable stay at the Sonora Inn. The staff were mostly friendly and helpful. There is a roof-top pool, which we love! The breakfast was a little disappointing, with packaged muffins and too ripe apples. We liked the ambience of this historic hotel, but because of the age we had a couple nit-picks: the bathroom faucet has two... More

Old time atmosphere with old time facility. But a nice experience with the whole town and all. The wifi was weak in our room. They let me use the front desk computer to make send some necessary email and do my payroll for my office staff by direct deposit to the bank. Good restaurant next door attached to the hotel.

It was a busy Memorial Weekend in Sonora but we were fortunate to find a room available at the Sonora Inn. If you are the type that is drawn to historic charm and period hotels, you will enjoy this inn. Originally built in the late 1800's and remodeled in 1931 into a more Spanish style, the inn has retained much... More

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. The staff was very friendly and the room was nicely decorated and in a great location down town. But for the price it was pretty bare bones. There was no fridge or microwave in the room, not even drinking glasses , just paper cups for coffee. This cost us $$$ extra,... More

Booked a room during the Calaveras Frog Jump. Carrie, who assisted us, was wonderful. She arranged for a crib for the 2 year old and made sure it was in the room and set up when we arrived. Queen room was small but perfect for grandma and two children. Coffee, wifi, an air conditioner plus a big TV for the... More

The hotel is very centrally located – literally at the main intersection. Therefore, a number of rooms are facing traffic which can be noisy. Some rooms seem to have very small windows. We liked the atmosphere and the central location, although I am sure no atmosphere would be lost by changing the carpets and adding double glazing. We liked the... More

After reading the reviews on here I warned my husband that this hotel would not be very good but for 1 night I wasn't going to change it. I couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised when we checked in. The hotel was clean and had a old world charm about it, was well located and the lady on reception was... More

A quaint inn in an historic, charming town. The staff was friendly helpful, clean rooms and convenient location. Very affordable rates. We would stay here again and recommend to others. Convenient to many local restaurants and cultural events on weekends. Easy access to "box" stores and restaurants if needed.

The hotel is a historic gold rush hotel. The public areas are nice. The desk clerk was friendly. We booked a AAA rate room. The room we received was at the end of a hall at the back of the hotel. It had a small window that looks out on a deck where other guests go to smoke. Very claustrophobic... More

We stayed overnight at this historic hotel for a weekend wedding. We called several days in advance to ask if it was possible to check in a bit early, since we were driving in on the day of the wedding, and would need to change into formal attire for the wedding. The receptionist that answered the call said it wouldn't... More
