Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Rancho Sonora is a gem in the desert. Charming adobe, beautiful courtyard, well-appointed rooms, and very clean. Management is very kind and helpful. We highly recommend staying here if you're in the area rather than a local hotel. It has the historic charm, comfort, and beauty you are looking for with all the modern amenities.

My husband and I recently visited the Florence area and stayed at this wonderful Inn for four nights. The courtyard is beautiful, our room was comfortable and quiet, and we left feeling refreshed. The owner checked with us daily in the breakfast room to ensure we were enjoying our stay.

(I'll mention the impolite staff at the end) The Rancho Sonora Inn is absolutely adorable. It really stands out, especially in Florence where there is practically nothing around. We stayed here because we were going to a wedding at Windmill Winery and it was either Rancho Sonora or one other hotel in the area. My family and I got the...

Let me begin by offering my sincere apologies for the unacceptable behavior. Unfortunately, because we are a small Inn, we do not have a night desk person. There is really no excuse for being treated rudely even awakened in the middle of the night. We are pleased that you had a nice stay and appreciate your kind words about the...

What a great place to stay. We had the suite which had a well equipped kitchen, king sized bed and two bathrooms. There was a private patio area. It is so quiet and peaceful, the most relaxing part of our trip.

We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed every day. Housekeeping was outstanding and very friendly staff. Beautiful courtyard and easy walk to RV park where family was staying. Breakfast in the mornings was always good. Short distance to town and another nearby town had larger businesses. Would stay here again and have recommended to others.

Stayed twice here recently and thoroughly enjoy the old southwest ambiance and peacefulness of this little motel. The beds and pillows were great. Rooms are moderately large, especially the bathrooms, and attractively decorated. The walls are so thick you can barely hear the doves cooing outside. It's only a few miles south of Florence on the backroad to Tucson, a...

I'm always leery of b&bs because the proprietors are always fussy. But the manager was very kind and helpful. We stayed in the hotel part, which is a line of four hotel rooms along the courtyard. Excellent price on weeknights. Casitas are in the back and don't get the courtyard charm. The rooms are really nicely appointed and there are...

A short drive south of Florence immerses you in very tasteful Southwest decor- inside and out. Several tables in the courtyard allow a place for relaxing or breakfast. Breakfast includes delicious sweet and hard rolls, yogurt, fruit, cereal and hard boiled eggs. We would definitely stay here again.
