Great place to stay in Sonora. Staff are all superb. Very pet friendly. Provided a water bowl and treats for our dog. Voucher for excellent breakfast at the Pine Cone restaurant next door. Nice to re-visit. This hotel has been built for 20 years or more, but it has been well maintained and has stood the test of time.

We checked into the Best Western after a harrowing drive down 108 in a huge snow storm without 4 wheel drive, so I was pretty stressed. We were greeted pleasantly, and after explaining our situation (we couldn't go home) Teresa at the front desk worked to find a lower rate for locals. It came out about $30 cheaper than the...

After a fearsome trip in the season's first big snow, we are pleased that we could offer a "home-away-from-home". We do have local emergency rate for special situations, at special times. The wine our team offered was a perk we give to guests on special occasions, like anniversaries, honeymoons etc. We are pleased that you enjoyed your experience!

This hotel is one of the nicest best western hotels. Location is very good, and close to our customer. I would stay there again when I travel back to that area. Employees were nice too! The room was large, clean, and very quiet.

Summer who works at the front desk was more than helpful. She worked hard to asist any requests that we had made. There isn't a question that she knows all about the little things that makes a difference.

I had booked with Trivago, non refundable but made a mistake with the date. Lady at front counter matched the price and I was able to receive the original amount back from Trivago. Needed a bottle opener and one was given to me to keep.

This is a hidden gem in the woods. The place is clean, quiet, easy access on and off the highway and/or a major street with shopping, eateries, etc. The continental breakfast is a full breakfast (your choice of a few different items at the restaurant on the property) and the food is excellent. In the evening, the lounge attached to...
