We stayed here for 1 night and wished it could have been longer. The room was big and airy, had a comfy bed and good shower. There were rocking chairs outside our door and a table if we wanted to sit out and watch everyone go by - or listen to the music being played on the street- we luckily... More

Poor room ventelation and condition ! Bath room facet handle came off in my hand, found fish hook in the carpet. They moved us to another room but they had to fix the plumbing first. Room smelled like bleach and was hot. It was in the 90's outside. No amenities in the room.

Hotel was very unique. Loved the old antiques that decorated the hotel. Very well kept and it was fun trying to imagine the hotel during the gold rush days with its interesting ways to get to each floor. The breakfast is VERY good but could start a little earlier. WE wanted to get an early start for Yosemite but breakfast... More

The new owners are way below average. What a shame because past reviews were so wonderful. The lobby had a pungent odor which almost made me want to leave. I was begrudgingly given the lower price I found online but was not given the room I booked. I asked to be moved but was given the wrong room again and... More

Historic building in downtown Sonora. Every room is different but the room we were in had the queen bed a two small chairs so not really any place to sit. Very small bathroom was like threading the needle to get to the toilet. Small flat screen TV but no other appliances in the room. Three story building with no elevators... More

This cute hotel will quickly be run into the ground if these new owners do not get their act together. A nice weekend getaway quickly turned rotten when our reserved rooms were given away. Our group was broken up instead of staying together. Our reassigned room was not fully functional. They promised us that a licensed plumber would be by... More

We loved our stay at the Gunn House Hotel. We stayed just one night and were sorry to leave. The hotel is an older historic building, and our room (number 6) was on the ground floor facing into the courtyard/ hallway. We had no view to speak of, but after having had a couple of nights previously having been far... More

Stayed here after spending the day in Yosemite National Park. It is a wonderful old hotel established in 1850. The rooms are furnished with antique furniture, the balcony on the upper level overlooks the main street and is furnished with rocking chairs! The included breakfast was the best we had on our trip, wonderful hot egg dish and fresh made... More
