The hotel is conveniently located in the center of Sonora where there are many good restaurants and shops. We spent two nights in the Grace Kelly Room which was located by the main street of Sonora with constant traffic noise into the late night. We did not partake of the unattractive breakfast: packaged pastry items and juice, coffee and tea,... More

The main purpose of the visit was to visit Ghost towns & Route 49 of '49ers fame - the heart of gold rush country. The Inn was well located with restaurants nearby. Grace kelly had stayed nearby when they filmed 'High noon'. The room was cosy & comfy

1 night stay passing through. Bed was great, great water pressure in shower and lots of hot water. Warm and quite (after we turned off the heater). Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Good eating close by. Rate was excellent. So much character, truly a gem and a great experience.

We loved this hotel because of it's history! Comfortable rooms. Old, but functional bathrooms, interesting choice of colours... Hotel layout is a maze, floors and stairs creak, staff were very charming, as is the lovely town! Breakfast was terrible! Worst ever!

Traveling by motorcycle we always look for a place to stay with a couple requirements. One of the needs is close walking distance to food and entertainment. Sonora Inn fits this very well. Great staff that was very helpful including the offer to park our bikes for the night in the 15 minute loading zone for the hotel. No security... More

This is a charmingly refurbished older hotel and has the quirks that go along with being old. If you enjoy that, give it a try. If you need more amenities, then better look elsewhere. We stayed two nights and our room was lovely. Excellent mattress. The only demerit I'd give the room was for the lighting. With a king-sized bed,... More

We booked the hotel for a night as we did a loop through the Sierras on a short vacation getaway. We didn't pay close attention to the reviews or ratings, giving them some leeway for a recent update. Too late, Parking and Check-in was a joke, Too few and too poorly marked. A lot of stairs into the lobby. The... More

Appreciate this hotel for what it is. HISTORICAL and WONDERFUL! With all of its oddities, my family and I really enjoyed our stay. 1) It is in the middle of historical Sonora. We had never been before and loved it's central location. 2) The staff was wonderful. From our initial booking phone call through checking out, everything was fantastic. The... More

We booked our room planning a 2-day stay in Yosemite (we stayed in South Lake Tahoe). We entered Yosemite from the east and enjoyed a leisurely drive that was cut short by the growing wildfire. Our original itinerary, an hour drive to Sonora from the 120-West entrance to Yosemite, was blocked by the fire, and we had to drive a... More

Great place to stay, we got the two queen bed room for my wife son and I. Great location too. Definitely not the Ritz but would recommend for one or two nights. Staff was also very helpful, the room was clean. Pool is good to just don't expect a lot of privacy.
