We were booked at the Rodeway Inn across the street from Sonora Inn. Decided to switch to Sonora Inn after we looked at its welcoming, nicely decorated lobby. Sorora Inn was WAY BETTER than the tired, peeling paint Rodeway. Our 2-queen room was just $10 more than Rodeway. (139 vs. 149). PROS: spacious room with modern amenities like TV, Wi-fi, AC. Nice decor throughout. Clean. Friendly staff. Second fl. terrace pool gets full sun in afternoon for refreshing swim. Walking distance to several decent restaurants. We had casual dinner at Diamondback Grill that was good, not great. B of A ATM right across the street. CONS: street noise if your room is on S. Washington side of hotel. Continental breakfast was poor. Lots of processed, high-sugar foods & weak coffee.
OVERALL: Enjoyed our stay in nice room with comfortable beds and would stay again. Good value.
