Hotel has a beautiful Lobby, however the room did not look clean, carpet was old, stains, etc. Hot water in the shower had temperature variations: either too hot or too cold

The room was huge with beautiful windows. However, the hotel is very old and the shower/tub could have been updated.

There was a lot mildew in the bathrooms and the bedroom wasn’t with two beds like I reserved

Very clean, helpful staff who got us a room late at night without a hesitation.

It was historic/old but clean and the staff was really nice and friendly and really cared about their property. We loved Victor the cat and the breakfast was really good. They offered a lot of options. The room was a bit small and there were no dressers to put cloths in so we lived out of our suitcases but it was okay. Perhaps some suitcase racks to elevate them. It worked fine and we really loved the location of the inn and highly recommend it!!!! Thank you for a great stay!!!!

Old historic building that is kept up very nice. Very nice staff and very clean. Right in town where you can walk to all the local action. Thumbs up 👍

Friendly knowledgable and helpful staff, made a card snafu on my end seamless. Excellent commercial breakfast with good coffee. Housekeeping staff helpful and friendly.

We really enjoyed the charm, but there were several things that needed maintenance. The blow dryer in our room was broke, the bathroom was very cramped and the noise from the street in front of the hotel was so loud it was hard to sleep. There also was no maid service the whole time we stayed there.

Despite the negative reviews on YELP, we still took a chance on the Sonora Inn... and we're MORE that pleasantly surprised. It was like taking a step back into history. The new owners seem to have done a great job at restoring the rooms. Everything was clean - and worked! the beds were perfect; and the breakfast offered was top notch. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. We hope to return again - and this time, stay longer.

Nice and convenient location. Comfortable and cozy rooms

We arrived and they had us in a queen size room when I specifically asked for king size bed because my bf is 6'5 ! The first night was very uncomfortable and also disappointing because of all the noise outside our room which was right next to the busy street (Room 248). Luckily the nice ladies in the front switched us the next night into a king size suite. Loved the big room and bed. Room was still a bit noisy because of the outside street. Walls are super thing and rooms overall need to be upgraded/updated. Its cool because the building is historic but some of the things like toilets and sinks and showers need to be replaced! We aren't big people, tall yes, but we could barely sit on the toilet without hitting our knees to the sink. All in all it was an okay and interesting experience. The breakfast in the am was nice and the staff was very helpful and lovely.

Very interesting old hotel undergoing renovation. The elevator didn't work during our stay, but the 85 year old unit is being completely redone. Lots of history in this building and great location.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. On behalf of our team at The Sonora Inn, we apologize for the room condition. We finally have renovations scheduled this year. Due to COVID this was postponed from last year. The Rodeway Inn will have a complete remodel, and become the new Lumberjack Hotel. When finished, The Sonora Inn will get an upgrade. New furnishings, new carpet, plumbing, etc. etc. We do hope you will come back after our remodel and experience the difference. Sincerely, The Sonora Inn Front Desk Denise
