I had never stayed at this inn and was somewhat apprehensive because of the change in ownership as reported by an earlier review. Not to worry. The present owners are making some great improvements, including a new patio area with a barbecue. Danny cooks a wonderful full breakfast or you can let the owners know you have special dietary needs and Astrid works out the details. We accepted the offer to have our breakfast on the porch outside our suite and it was a delightful experience. The food was great and the service first class. The only problem we encountered was the noise from the highway, but this is likely a problem no matter where you stay in Sonora because it is a small town in a gorge bisected by a busy street.
