“Large hotel, good facilities”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Our room was large and the bathroom was great, had all the facilities I look for tissues, hairdryer and space beside the sink to put my makeup and toiletries. The only complaint is it was a looong way to the lobby to get breakfast and there was nowhere to sit and eat unless you dragged everything back to your room!! Didn't use the pool or spa (too cold) but it looked OK

Room was very clean and nice. Little rough as it is not new on the outside. I would like to have seen the cleaning staff take the time to clean the stairways and halls. They were disgusting, the stairs have food debris, leaves, bottlecaps etc.. in 7 days not once was the outside swept or hit with a vacuum. Staff inside, older lady was very nice but younger gals would not greet you so do not expect much in the way of the front desk. Pool wonderful.

Room Tip: Choose the backside if you want quiet. do not walk outside without shoes as the outside of facility...

To be honest I was not too sure about this hotel when booking, but to be honest it exceeded our expectations. Ok, the rooms are a little tatty around the edges, however my room appears to have new TV, fridge and Microwave. The Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable and quite, my room was at the back of the property. The offer a continental breakfast for free. The town has seen better times but appears to have turned the corner with lots of eating options and a grocery store about five minutes walk away. S real good choice for visiting Yosemite either before or after.

We got here after driving through winding 108 highway (beautiful scenery, by the way) when it was almost dark, so we felt lucky to find this place because although it is not new at all, we felt warmly welcomed and had a good rest. Bobbi Jo, at the reception, was very friendly and nice. She assigned us room 219 which is on the back of the building, so it was really quiet (the front of the building faces highway 49). And although -as said- the facility is not new, the room was comfortable, decent, well equipped and clean (we paid 53$). This place also has an outdoor pool and a computer for guests in the lobby which is the place where they serve the breakfast. However it is true that there are no tables or chairs where to eat it, so you either eat it there while standing or you take it to the room.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the back because it will be quieter.

Clean, old rooms. We had asked for a "superior" room, as it was the only kind of room accomodating 5 people (enough space for an extra bed). The room we got did NOT have the extra bed, (it wouldn't have fitted anyway) and it was not the room category we had paid for.
The next room we got was larger, and my husband had to roll in the extra bed himself ! Many rooms in the same category were not occupied, but she still put us in the one right on the main street side. And it is a busy, noisy street.
Breakfast is basic, but OK.

Reviewed 14 January 2014

For the past several years, I've stayed at the Sonora property while judging the area's photo contest/exhibit. Each time they have us stay here right on Washington Street.

Check in was easy and the rooms are all non-smoking, so there's no stench. There's even a spa and a pool on site.

The rooms are large and beds ample. The beds are king size so you won't overflow like I usually do in many other hotels. The bathrooms are large and clean. When you turn on the heater, you don't here a thing, but you are as comfortable as can be.

If you want a light breakfast, it's included, the usual cereal and mike, toast, juice and coffee. Want a little more? You can walk downtown or the staff will direct you to other local coffee houses.

The only ding I can find is that the rooms aren't too sound proof and you can hear the TV next door and the traffic going by, but it's not too bad for the rooms in the front. That's a minor nit in the overall experience.

Room Tip: Get a room in the back where there's less noise from the traffic.
