We have been to the Gunn house 3 times and always have enjoyed something special about each room and it's theme. The owner, manager and staff, all make you feel welcome and comfortable at every turn.The rooms are clean and have everything you need. Wifi & T.V. are included, which I personally like. They have a nice and clean pool,...

A quirky, characterful hotel. Excellent staff, immaculate room and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.The rooms at the back surround a very agreeable, semi-outdoor plush carpeted patio, overlooking the pool. The bathroom is small but perfectly serviceable and has more towels than you will ever need. I believe there is intention to refresh the bathrooms;...

Spent a week at the Gunn House Hotel, and it was hard to get me to move out. I took advantage of the off season, non-weekend rate, and I appreciate the reasonable rate. You definitely should take time to discuss your room selection. There's a balance of locations considering if you want quiet, windows, Internet or a porch view. I...

My wife Cindy and I love taking weekend trips to quaint Sonora California. We now have found a hotel as quaint as the town. The Gunn House was absolutely phenomenal! The staff was very pleasant, the rooms are spectacular, and their morning breakfast make you feel like you're sitting with family. It is very obvious that the owners and the...

I began staying at Gunn House 2 years ago when I started monthly visits to my mom at a local assisted living facility. What started out as a place to stay overnight to break up a long drive turned into my monthly two-night "getaway". I have stayed at other nice local hotels, but Gunn House beats them all in price,...

I have stayed here for a number of years now anytime I go up to the area. The ambiance is nothing short of stunning with the charm of the old days nestled in the hillside. The breakfast....well, there truly is nothing better than fresh, homemade and scrumptious! Whether it was a romantic getaway or a group of friends, we have...

We found the Gunn House Hotel 4 years ago and have stayed here several times as we frequently visit family in the area. It is clean and the friendly staff is appreciated. I love the rooms and the balconies with seating on all sides. Especially nice overlooking the road or pool. Breakfast is amazing here. Each day there are several...

We were traveling through Sonora and called the the hotel the same night to see if a room was available. They happened to have a room and right away the service was great. Once we got to our room, we were pleased with the inviting room. The room size was great and we enjoyed the style of our room. The...

Having been born and raised in Sonora I have passed this hotel almost every day of my forty years. Not until two years ago did I stay there. I have stayed four times in the past two years and would recommend it to anyone visiting Sonora who wants an authentic old town feel. I have stayed in the side rooms,...

This was the second time I had stayed at the Gunn House and although I couldnt remember much from my first trip I had a feeling it was a good place to stay. The location is perfect, right in town and within walking of the various bars and restaurants. The Gunn House has a western feel but the rooms are...
