This is an update of the first review I wrote of this property. While the rooms are still dated, this time around we had no issues with the A/C or the fridge. At this point we have stayed at rooms in every level of the goldrush building and now I know that while the view on the front of the... More

Stopped here driving cross country. We wanted a hotel west of Yosemite so we could get up early and hike in the morning. When we checked in the front desk was so helpful and incredibly nice. The reason this only gets four stars is that the rooms need a little updating and the beds are kind of uncomfortable. The location... More

Room was just passable. Office personnel were nice and personal. Breakfast was low quality. We would not stay again. Price was reasonable considering... Parking was tough and layout of hotel was difficult.

Noisy and dingy. Even after tipping housekeeping both days we stayed we were told an item we left in the room was not found. The one positive about the property is the location. Sonora is a great little town and the location allows you to walk everywhere. I would absolutely find another hotel if at all possible. WAY over priced.

As there was not a lot of places to stay, we chose this place because price was good and front desk personnel was very nice. The hotel was nice looking from the outside. Also, very convenient to shops and restaurants. The room was very out-dated and had a musty smell. The towels were very poor and a sign indicated that... More

After a serious medical accident in the family the Inn provided us the best service in the world, with affordable rooms extra discount, great service & a lot of kindness. Inns of California is the best way to sleep for a good price close-by Yosemite, San Francisco and other highlights. The rooms are simple, a little bit noisy perhaps, but... More

Had a room in the Gold Rush building. Room was clean and bed was ok. Service at front desk was friendly and good. Breakfast was simple. Cold cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, mini muffins, bread for toasting, instant oatmeal. My biggest problem was the lingering smell of the febreeze type of product used to try and mask the fact that someone... More

Nicely located for a stroll through the town. Little bit old and fusty but comfortable with a very nice welcome at reception. Just needs a bit of an update but for a one night stay perfectly adequate with an ok breakfast.
