Probably the best Hotel I've stayed at so far, in a lovely little historic town. The rooms are all unique and anyone who is into antique decor will go crazy over this place! Very clean, and cozy. The hotel is located right on the main street of Old town Sonora, and you are within a very short walking distance from...

This is a lovely little hotel in downtown Sonora. The rooms a very nice, comfortable and very clean. The best part of the hotel is the friendly staff and breakfast! Breakfast is (mostly) cooked or baked on site and so very fresh and very delicious. The hotel has kind of a gold rush theme that adds to the charm

Office closes at 8pm in the winter, so I received a call from someone to confirm we were arriving, and what to do if the office was closed. You can pull in right in front of the office to check in, then park in back or in the lot next to the building- whichever is closer to your room/more convenient....

The hotel is historic, the breakfast is amazing and the staff is awesome!! Right down from some great bars and restaurants... Black Oak Casino is close as well as James Town and Columbia. Murphy's is a close drive if you are into great wines!!

We stayed at the Gunn House after a day of snow skiing. I had stayed at the hotel as a young boy about 50 years prior. I made our reservations over the phone about 15 minutes prior to our arrival. The call taker at the Gunn House was very friendly and easy to speak with. On arrival we met Tracy...

Cutest little hotel I've stayed at in years. Loved the sitting porch and the breakfast room. Everything had a personal touch and the staff was great. I will hands down stay there again next time I'm in the area.

My husband and I were on our way back to the valley from a company dinner further up the hill and we decided to stay at this historic hotel for the night. The service upon arrival was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and comfortable.... a little small, but it contained everything we needed. The only thing...

Jessica, than you for choosing the Gunn House Hotel. We are all very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we hope you will visit us again. Yes, our front facing rooms can be noisy. Those who are light sleepers should request a room in the back. Thanks again!

We were coming late, get a couple of calls from managers to confirm we were coming. Main office was already closed, but managers (or owners?) still got us in without much waiting. Room decor is nice and stylish, and adds to the "old" hotel look. Was nice to return there after roaming around.
