The room was compact but the main issue was the gaps around the edge of the door, window and air conditioning unit. This was our least favourite hotel on a tour of Western USA, it just felt a bit low quality and rickety. There was free internet on 1 PC in the reception building but the receptionist was stressing out...

Attended a conference in Columbia, CA and stayed at this inn. The room was in much need of a remodel. Those very old classic bedspreads that are thin and probably never washed, there was dirt in the toilet, stains on the sink, carpet and chairs dirty. I always carry Lysol Spray so I sprayed the entire place. When I wipped...

Unfortunately we can not predict when a plumbing problem may arise, but we did our best to resolve the problem as quickly and courteously. Sometimes events beyond our control can delay the resolution of a problem. I am glad that we were able to get you into another room and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused...

Date of our visit: 17th September 2012. As a stop-over on a Cosmos Western Wonders Coach Tour Our room was barely adequate for our overnight stop-over. The room we were allocated (on the third level was nothing like the lovely rooms displayed in the ‘Official Hotel Photos’ on Tripadvisor). Was the room small? I swear, there was not enough floor...

The hotel is on the main street in Sonora, so easy to find. The swimmingpool is small but functional. The check-in was efficient and the lady who helped us changed our room from 2 double beds to a king, with no questions. The room was comfortable with a fridge and a microwave. Bathroom was big enough too. We could park...

I chose this hotel because it was near the caverns. The hotel was nice. The room was large and so was the bathroom. The staff was extremely friendly. A fair selection of continental-breakfast items were offered. It is within walking distance to several restaurants. I would stay again.

POSITIVES: They had a vacancy, when other places were booked full. The young lady at the front desk was very friendly. NEGATIVES: The stairs and balcony walkways were filthy and littered. I would have asked for a refund before I even looked in the room if I could have found a vacancy elsewhere. The room I stayed in faced the...

Location - we chose the town of Sonora as our key destination was Yosemite. It was about a 90 min drive to get to Yosemite. The motel is on the main street, Washington. The hotel actually has 2 buildings which are not right beside each other. We were lucky to be connected to the main building (where the check-in is...
