My husband and I stayed here this past weekend. We didn't find the staff at the front desk (both upon checking in and checking out) to be the most friendly, but they were pleasant. The hotel is very conveniently located on the main, historic street of Washington, and is a very quick walk to all the charming shops and restaurants... More

Wonderful place to base your trip in Sonora area. Staff are friendly and helpful. The historic hotel is centrally located and easy for walking or driving in the local areas. Local merchants are friendly and helpful.

We spent one night here before heading to Yosemite and were happy with our stay. Our room, a corner room located on the second floor was a little small (not surprising since the hotel is older) but perfectly adequate. We did hear other guests when they walked by outside but didn't hear much noise from the road, which was nice.... More

Gunn House is an older property, but is clean and comfortable and the rooms are good sized. We have stayed there several times and the staff is very warm and helpful. Breakfast is provided with the room and is very good. This time we decided to go out for breakfast and asked for a recommendation, they suggested Wolfs Creek Café... More

My husband and I were planning an overnight stay in Sonora. I read various reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to stay at the Gunn House Hotel. I'm really glad we did. It's so charming. I requested a room with a street view with rockers on the front porch. Our request was granted and we enjoyed sitting out there in the... More

We were 5 staying here, 2 couples and a single. Nice clean rooms, great breakfast, friendly staff. Not the first time here and we will be back. Very quaint, location central, and just a pleasure to stay here.

Our neighbors were loud and drunk or drugged until well past midnight. Sleep was impossible, and management was nowhere to be found. There is no "Quiet Hours" sign or rule, and nothing could be done other than personal confrontation or lying passively awake. A NICE ROOM HAS NO VALUE WHATSOEVER IF YOU CANNOT SLEEP IN THE BED, and that was... More

As the owners of the Gunn House Hotel we were very sorry to hear about your experience. We were disappointed that we were not able to speak with you personally or to extend our apologies directly. We are a bit baffled by your experience at our Hotel, learning of it just after you had already left. Once informed of your... More

Spent two nights here in October. Had a room at the front of the hotel on the second floor. The welcome was very good, the lady saw we were tired after a long drive and brought cold drinks up to our room. That was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. The décor is in keeping with the age of... More

We stayed there in sept, for one night..The room was very spacious, clean and nicely decorated..The breakfast was delicious, with homemade quiche and all kinds of rolls and sweet breads..The only drawback was that our room faced the street, so there was some traffic noise…I would still recommend this nice hotel...
