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.

We attended a wedding at the Windmill Winery. I kept putting off making reservations and by the time that I did, the Holiday Inn where everyone else was staying was booked. I searched on TripAdvisor and came across Rancho Sonora. I then remembered that I think it was Dan Davis featured it as a travel destination so went ahead and...

We stayed on Nye. It is just south of Florence about 7 miles. We stayed here instead of staying at the only other local hotel and boy was is a good decision. We had a wedding at the local winery. The landscape and inn is so well taken care of. The owner left us a note for check in and...

Located about five miles outside of Florence, Az, there is a remarkable desert retreat. This beautiful little Inn was built in the 1930's and has been lovingly maintained. The surroundings are beautiful; cactus, palo verde trees, a fountain, a tile patio, and flowers all accentuate its charming nature. It is quiet and serene, a wonderful escape from the bustle of...

a short drive south of Florence will bring you to this beautiful property. There are 6 rooms surrounding a walled courtyard or three private casitas available. We have stayed in both the Dolores room on the courtyard and the Ilsa (1 bedroom) and Abby (2 bedroom) casitas. The rooms come with an extended continental breakfast and the casitas all have...
