Excellent location in centre of town. Rooms very clean and tidy. Staff were very friendly both at the hotel and within the restaurants and shops in the town. Although the breakfast is a bit basic there is plenty of it.

Felt pretty disappointed at the state of the room and general appearance. BUT....This is in such a lovely little town, so ignore your surroundings, get out and enjoy Sonora! We were there on a Saturday night, apparently every alternate Saturday they have a music/art festival. So there was music and dancing in the street and lots of independent arty type...

The Sonora location is right on the main street going into town. If you get a room ask for one in the rear of the building. The motel sits on a slight hill and the rooms in the front have a lot of street noise. The rooms are clean, but a bit used due to there age. This motel gets...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three days (9/19 - 9/22/13). We were in a deluxe queen room. The hotel is right on the main street in Sonora. We asked to be changed to a room in the rear of the hotel because of traffic noise. The staff changed us with no problem at all. Roxanne helped...

4 friends and I stopped here overnight on a recent motorcycle trip. The hotel was nothing fancy but the rooms were clean and the price was right and the desk staff were very friendly and helpfull. No elevators but still easy access to the rooms. Centrally located in Sonora and within walking distance to several restaurants. We would certainly return.

This hotel was set just off the main road so was a good location for shops/restaurants. There is a lovely pool and hot tub outside which was nice in the evening to relax. The bedrooms were quite small and the air conditioning unit was extremely noisy so couldnt have it on overnight and got quite warm. Breakfast offering felt quite...

We stayed here traveling with the Cosmos Tours right after Labor Day. This town is located in the valley below Yosemite and is all of 1,500 population. We found the hotel conveniently located real close to diners and small mom and pop cafes. The motel is 60's style and while clean, it is badly in need of a room and...

I would not even give a one to this place. The breakfast is a joke, my room was full of bed bugs and came out of there with my children with so many bug bites. it is really off the road and as they claim it is not that close to Yosemite National Park. Plan at least a two hours...

We stayed here as part of a larger tour of the Western US. The hotel is located in the pleasant town of Sonora and within easy reach of local shops and places to eat. Service was very friendly and rooms comfortable - would strongly recommend for a short stay.

We required two rooms mid week and stayed 1night before continuing our travels to Yosemite. Great value, tidy clean rooms and walking distance to restaurants and shops. We were driving all day so this location was ideal. We recommend Europa Cafe for its delicious hamburgers and steaks -a hearty country dinner and all walking distance from hotel. The four of...
