“Awful place to stay”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This was by far the WORST hotel we ever stayed at. Management is rude, rooms are dirty, and there is an awful smell not only in the lobby but also in room. Asked for a different room and was told no. Asked for them to smell room and told it was fine, we made the smell. REALLY? I can honestly stay this place is nasty and you are better off sleeping in a car - it was that bad.

Room Tip: do not stay here, there are not any good rooms

We stayed here for 3 nights which was a bit of a mistake. It was good for going to Yosemite and surounding areas and Jamestown railway was excellent.
The hotel business card states very clean rooms, but our room (on second floor) was not as described. The bed and bathroom were very clean, but everywhere else was very dusty and the carpet was filthy.
Breakfast was a joke, cherios, pancakes and not much else. There was no room to eat it and we were asked to eat in our bedroom or outside.

We arrived mid afternoon and were told that check in wasn't until 4. When we returned to check in the cleaning staff were still cleaning the rooms past 4 o'clock. The cleaning staff were helpful but seemed overstretched - perhaps they could employ more staff. We had to ask for towels as there were none in our room. The pool was freezing cold so didn't go in it.

The breakfast arrangements were not good. It was laid out haphazardly on a table in the lobby - not very professionally arranged unlike all the other motels we stayed in. There was nowhere to eat it so you had to take it back to eat in your room. There were limited items available and only warm apple juice.

The bed was on a solid base which stuck out. We knocked our legs on it numerous times so ended up with bruises. However it was a nice room. The motel is three miles from Sonora on rte 108. You would need to drive into town to eat as there is nowhere nearby.

We thought the motel overpriced at $129. There was no frig (although space for one in the unit) and no microwave.

Couldn't figure out where this motel was actually located. It was on a highway. Had a pool. Breakfast was a joke! The carpets were in need a a cleaning. Would choose another place if I returned to this area.

Country Inn Sonora is in the middle of nowhere, right between Jamestown and Sonora. It’s an okay place to stay if it’s only for one night. If you want something to eat you have to drive to one of the two cities about 10 minutes in car. The motel has a pool, which is nice on a warm summer day. They had continental breakfast from 6.30 am to 9.30 am, but when we arrived in the reception at 8.45 am, they were almost out of everything and there were no refill.

Room Tip: Come early to breakfast, no refills !

We stayed here while driving from San Francisco to Yosemite. It was a very nice stay with good comfort. There room was clean and big. The only thing we can complain about is the breakfast. It is not very good and there was not really a place to eat it, so we had to go outside or to our room. However we would again stay here again and recommend the hotel.
