The Inn has played host to notables and celebrities including Grace Kelly during the filming of High Noon and more recently Drew Barrymore while she worked on the film Bad Girls.

Oh Sonora Inn, I wanted to love you. We stayed at the Sonora Inn for a wedding earlier this year. My friends and I shared the Suite (room 200). It’s not really a suite it’s two adjoined rooms each with their own bathroom. The rooms were cute with lots of old charm. Perhaps a litt

The staff could be friendlier and the room was not very clean. The room was overpriced for the level of accommodation. Our experience was not horrible, but I don't think we will stay there again. The kids were not comfortable in the room at all.

We had a great experience at this hotel right in downtown Sonora. We held meeting over 2 days and the staff was great and the meeting room was nice and suited our needs. The new elevator was almost finished and apparently the rooms are about to receive an overhaul. Even though i

Thank you very much for your review. It was really a pleasure for us to host your company for the week and we are working to address a couple of the issues you did address. We would agree that our hotel offers a historic, "mini-urban experience close to the woods". We would absolutely love to host you again at the hotel and please feel free to reach out directly. All the best, Sonora Inn Management

The one thing I will not forget in a hurry about this hotel is the smell. The room we stayed in really stunk of chemicals like something rotten had been recently disinfected by some very foul smelling chemical, the type which really gets into your throat. It was also pretty dirty

Hello Quest, I am very sorry to read about your experience at our hotel and that the smell of our cleaning products bothered you this much. We have just changed our products and are retraining staff so I don't believe what you experienced should be an issue for future guests. I am glad that you thought the bathroom was clean even if our toilet was small. Most of our bathrooms are "retro" in style and we do try to display that accurately on our photos - so we would have to disagree that we are in any way misrepresenting our rooms at our boutique property. We would nonetheless like to refund you for your stay as we failed to meet your expectations and we do take that very seriously. Please contact the hotel and ask to speak with the owner. Kind Regards, Sonora Inn Management
