This hotel is located in a quiet area of Sonora, the facility is spacious, and the breakfast is excellent! We were visiting the Gold Country but were happy to discover that Yosemite is only 1 1/2 hours drive away! A very nice base to explore the region.

Waited until the last minute to reserve a hotel but we were able to get a cab to and from the concert in Murphys! The lounge was still open at the hotel when we got back and the bartender stayed on a little longer to accommodate the group of people we had!

I stayed here with my 12yr old son a couple of nights ago. What a great spot! Staff could not be more helpful and friendly and the room was very comfortable and spacious - even had our own little balcony overlooking the hotel swimming pool. Plus our room rate included a free breakfast in the adjoining restaurant - what's not...

I'd recommend this hotel because it's pet friendly. It has nice walking paths for your pet. On the first floor, the back entrance opens up to a meadow with your own table and chairs for two. The staff is friendly, however you have to cordinate with the cleaning staff because they won't clean your room if your pet is there....

Was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Staff was incredible, grounds and hotel were very clean. Sonora itself is not an attraction but its easy to get around from the hotels location in relation to highways. Free breakfast and parking make this hotel an excellent value.

Stayed here after a day in Yosemite. Clean room, very friendly front desk, good beds, nice shower. Breakfast voucher for restaurant next door - good food; you have your choice of about 4 things on the menu or you can apply a $ amount toward whatever you want. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here on our trip to Yosemite Park. Pretty much what you would expect from an older Best Western. It is located in a very rural area and there are some interesting attractions nearby that we enjoyed in addition to Yosemite such as Historic Jamestown and the Railtown 1897 Historic Park. The property is well maintained and the room was...

If we ever are in Sonora again, we would stay here. The restaurant on site is included in breakfast and we were there for Thurs night, so there was a Manager's reception with drinks and appetizers. The ice machine closest to our room was broken, so that was the only issue.

Could not have been more pleased with this hotel and it is a real hidden gem. We found this place out of pure luck. When we are in the area we will stay here again. Everyone is so willing to assist you and that includes the General Manager.
