The hotel was super cute and cozy. We were greeted with friendly faces and check in was a breeze. We were notified ahead of time that the elevators were down and would not be working during our stay, super courteous of them and appreciated. That wasn't an issue with us. The stay was pleasant however our particular room was frequented by the periotic nightlife noise of Sonora as well as the traffic outside our window. The second night was muffled as we turned on our heating unit, that provided some separation from the noise. We opted out of the breakfast however enjoyed the hot coffee provided. The hotel was close to many great restaurants and we had immediate access to shopping and local life. We would recommend a stay here if you are looking for access to downtown with a clean comfortable charm, however with that charm comes little bits of outdated plumbing, heating, and construction. Definitely not a deal breaker for us, we had a great stay.…
This is a poorly maintained property, so if you stay there, be prepared to find doors that don't close, slanted floors and more. Their website is very optimistic about the features of the hotel, but reality says otherwise. The lady who checked us in was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was simple but OK.
We always enjoy our stays here. Can’t beat the location in downtown Sonora and the staff is always very friendly and helpful with local dining and shopping recommendations. We’ve stayed in other places in the past but keep coming back here.
This was my birthday trip. I wanted to go somewhere I hadn’t been yet so I booked 2 nights at the Sonora Inn since I love historic hotels. What a disappointment it was! I ended up leaving after one night and forfeiting the money I had paid. The front desk staff was very nice and the hotel is in a great location in the middle of old town Sonora. That’s where the positive ended. I had asked for a quiet room and instead I was given a room facing the main street. Extremely noisy even with ear plugs! The room was small and the first thing I noticed were all the stains on the carpet, disgusting! The bars on the windows were missing, window frame broken, dirty windows, bathroom sink not draining properly etc. All those issues should be easy to fix! After reading some other reviews mentioning those exact same issues it became clear to me that nobody cares about maintaining this hotel. Old, tired and neglected! I would never stay there again!…
Great location, but this hotel is in desperate need of updating! The elevator, air conditioning, and alarm clock were all broken when I checked in. The elevator worked briefly the next morning, but was broken again by the evening. Chunks of porcelain were missing from the bathroom sink. The toilet looked like something out of a freeway rest stop. It is called the "Historic" Sonora Inn, but in this case historic just means old. The bed was actually super comfortable, and it was pretty quiet; but it is definitely time for a remodel.
Thank you to the Sonora inn for having us. What a great piece of history! The hotel is old but we loved the charm. We stayed 1 night and it was enough. The hotel can definitely use some TLC. Beds are old and sunken in and we had to rig the shower head to stay put.
I was in Sonora for a workshop and wanted to stay downtown. The Sonora Inn is the best location. It has a history and old fashion charm. My room wasn't as large as it would have been in a newer hotel but had all the needed amities. The desk clerks are the BEST! They were all very friendly and helpful. They are local people who know where you should go and do.
This place is great, the service is wonderful and so is the continental breakfast. We can't wait to go back. We just loved how relaxing it was and all the little shops that are so close were really cool.
Elevator wasn’t working which wasn’t a big deal for me to walk up to the third floor, but if you were elderly or not in great shape it could be a problem. Bed was comfortable. Good location in the heart of downtown.
The location is amazing for the area-- it is right downtown, within walking distance of many little shops, restaurants, and bars. The room was bigger than expected, and the air conditioner did its best regardless of the fact that I chose to visit during one of the hottest weeks of the year. The building is old, and the floors are creaky, but that is exactly what you'd expect from an establishment that was built in the 1800's. It adds to the charm. The building is old and creepy in the best way-- at one point I just walked up and down the hallways trying to see the old pictures and feel the history. The staff was very friendly and professional (even when I asked them about ghost stories.) I would absolutely recommend this establishment to anyone looking to stay in Sonora, CA.
