I have stayed here for a number of years now anytime I go up to the area. The ambiance is nothing short of stunning with the charm of the old days nestled in the hillside. The breakfast....well, there truly is nothing better than fresh, homemade and scrumptious! Whether it was a romantic getaway or a group of friends, we have...

We found the Gunn House Hotel 4 years ago and have stayed here several times as we frequently visit family in the area. It is clean and the friendly staff is appreciated. I love the rooms and the balconies with seating on all sides. Especially nice overlooking the road or pool. Breakfast is amazing here. Each day there are several...

We were traveling through Sonora and called the the hotel the same night to see if a room was available. They happened to have a room and right away the service was great. Once we got to our room, we were pleased with the inviting room. The room size was great and we enjoyed the style of our room. The...

Having been born and raised in Sonora I have passed this hotel almost every day of my forty years. Not until two years ago did I stay there. I have stayed four times in the past two years and would recommend it to anyone visiting Sonora who wants an authentic old town feel. I have stayed in the side rooms,...

This was the second time I had stayed at the Gunn House and although I couldnt remember much from my first trip I had a feeling it was a good place to stay. The location is perfect, right in town and within walking of the various bars and restaurants. The Gunn House has a western feel but the rooms are...

We stayed at the Gunn House over new year's eve and it was a good experience. The hotel has a lot of character and the breakfast was great. The egg and sausage casserole and the made to order waffles were excellent. Breakfast in general was well done. There was 4 of us in the room with 2 queen beds.

We wanted a room with good morning light and got room 9 a large beautiful one, with a roomy bathroom. I felt at home immediately. It is in the front and we soon learned that even on a lovely holiday the rowdy gold miners' descendants are keeping to tradition by noisily drag racing up and down the street, boom boxes...

We're a young couple in our 30s and thought at first glance that this hotel would appeal more to our parents or grandparents tastes, but we loved it as well. It is historic, and we were prepared for at least some amenities to not function, but everything worked fine. We had comfortable beds, plenty of pillows, granite counters in the...

We've been several times over the years, and will always come back to the Gunn House. The value vs. the cost is phenomenal. We stay with a large group over a 3 day weekend during the holidays, and gather on Friday night in their breakfast room for cards, eating and drinking. We have a great time! There are a few...

This hotel is a great example of what all independent hotels should be like. From the lady on reception to breakfast and check out everything was perfect. The room was very clean, and lovely in a quaint way. The breakfast was lovely and all home made. Great location in the town, free parking. This was the best hotel we stayed...
