Booked this hotel for the second time back in March 2013. Asked and got the same room we stayed in last time. Normally we stay in hotels operated by the likes of Best Western, Hilton, Marriott but this privately run hotel is up there with the best. The rooms are quirky to say the least but well looked after and clean. Shirley, the owner is the person who makes the stay memorable with an Innkeepers breakfast to die for! All the normal breakfast stuff if you want but also lovely freshly made egg based casseroles and cakes and muffins that are so light and tasty that you will eat more than you should! The combinations of ingredients were amazing - sweet potato, plum, peach, chocolate, raspberry, blueberry, ginger and much much more. Shirley, the amount of work you put into keeping your customers happy is to be commended - especially as the book in the room suggests your move to this hotel was geared towards your retirement - getting up at 4.00 a.m. in the morning and then starting work at 6.00 a.m. does not seem to me as a move towards retirement - but keep it up as the customers love the results!
Apart from my love of Shirley's baking which is probably apparent from the above comments, the hotel is well situated in the centre of town and within walking distance of many fine eating places. The town has a great farmers market on Saturday mornings and the fruit and produce on offer was top quality. It may be a few years away but we look forward to returning to Sonora and particularly the Gunn House.
A last few words to compliment all the staff who were so friendly and helpful during our visit. You are a credit to the hotel.;
