We were over from the UK and looking for something a bit more "authentic" and spotted this hotel on Trip Advisor. What a find. It oozes charm, the staff are great and the room was excellent - all we had hoped for. Added to this...More

Peter....thank you for your critique. We take a lot of pleasure in providing an authentic and historic California Inn. The same for our restaurant, which many consider to be the best quality in this area.
Thank you, again.
Had a hearing in Sonora and thought I would try something different rather than where I usually stay in Sonora, and something that had a restaraunt. It only takes between 21/2 to 3 hours to get here from the Bay Area, an hour longer if...More

Thank you for considering us. Parking is off premises, either in the parking lot next door, or on the street which most consider to be quite safe.

Hope that this helps.
