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...

We stayed at the Gunn House for a friend's wedding in Sonora. The hotel has tons of character, and all staff were exceptionally friendly. Located on the main street of downtown Sonora, we could walk everywhere. Minus one star as the lock on our room door had issues (really hard to open the door with the key) and the shower...

We enjoyed this place very much ! It is an old historic building with a balcony with rocking chairs which I just loved, we rocked away the evening with a cold drink,, super friendly staff, quaint room, and came with a lovely free breakfast. All for a great price, would stay there again for sure !

Noisy and old updated rooms. Not modern with some charm. Lots of early morning noise on the street and the area. Check out other options in the area before you stay here unless you like lace, frills and floral prints everywhere.

This is actually more like a B & B than a hotel. We had THE upstairs king (facing the front) and it was a spacious room with a nicely updated bathroom. The furnishings consisted of truly elegant antiques which were tastefully arranged. One of the nicest B & B type layouts that we have seen. We got a chance to...
