The Gunn House provides a unique experience. It is part motel and part bed & breakfast. It offers one of the best complimentary breakfasts I have had in a motel. The rooms are nicely decorated but some are a little cramped. Wireless internet is provided to the rooms but because of the thick stone walls was largely unusable except if...

I initially found the Gunn House Hotel on trip and was intrigued...called and made reservations for two nights as we made our way through California on our trike. The parking behind the building was good and we had no issues. We were a little apprehensive at first being on such a busy main street with the traffic and noise. I...

My daughter and I came up and stayed for two nights during the week. We love this Hotel and are so satisfied with our room, breakfast, staff, and parking. The beds are so comfortable and they supply ample pillows, too. The breakfast was absolutely yummy and filling. Love the quaint eating/dining room. We will definitely be back to enjoy this...

This wonderfully renovated motel is a great out of the way get away. We only stayed one night but would have loved to stay longer and explore the town. Staff is very friendly. Rooms have a lot of charm. I would suggest you book rooms on the back side of the motel away from the busy street. Breakfast is unique...

The only complaint I have is the in room air conditioner. It is loud but I'm not sure you can find a room without these in this small town. The breakfast was good...a bit too much sugar in the morning for my liking. They are very friendly and don't mind children.

For an extreamely resonable rate, the Gunn House is Sonora's Gem of a Site to see and stay. I have had their breakfast in the morning several times, and it is wonderful! Any family that comes up, we send them there. The pool is fun too. As a local, I am proud that we have such a nice place to...

Stayed 2 nights in early July '12. Staff is friendly and rooms are tastefully done. Breakfast is delightful. However, the hotel faces hwy 49 which goes down the main street of Sonora and rooms in the front of the hotel are about 20 feet from the road. Many large trucks and logging trucks use the road so found the noise...

I love this hotel! The friendly, helpful staff...the great old stone building...the neat old timey decor...that nice cool pool (it gets hot in Sonora!)...the wonderful free, delicious breakfast...it's just wonderful. There are so many great places to visit nearby, or you can just kick back and enjoy the pool. I stay here every time I visit the Sonora area! It's...

Very pleasant staff at this property really made our stay. Sonora itself is not at all as we expected with a very busy road running right through the middle and not at all like sleepy-town America as we had hoped, but the Gunn House made up for it. Tons of character and with comfortable rooms, this hotel was ideal for...

By the title of this review you would think that I was unhappy with the Gunn House Hotel. But that is not the case. I thought that I had a reservation at the Gunn House Hotel in Sonora in March for a Celtic Festival that I work every year. Unfortunately, there was a mix up on my part and they...
