Pricey for a broken down old motor lodge. Where was the breakfast?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
시골마을답게 약간 지저분하고 오래된 느낌이었네여. 요새미티에서 샌프란 가는 길에 잠시 들러 묵었는데, 그냥 지나치며 잠만 자기엔 괜찮았습니다. 짐 풀고 마을 구경을 했는데 마을이 조용하고 아담해서 좋았네요. 하지만 호텔 자체의 청결함이나 안락함은 별로였습니다..Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This is what I get by trying to get by cheap. The shower was full of mold. The soap dispenser in the shower did not work. There was sharp metal jutting out from the shower drain which could cause a cut. There was a blood stain on the mattress pad which was able to be seen as the sheets were so thin. There was no Kleenex in the dispenser and there was old coffee in the coffee pot. The pool and hot tub were locked up with the sign that stated they were closed by the health department due to unsanitary conditions. There were many other things along this line, but you get the drift. We had stayed there a few years ago and while rustic, it was clean and fine for a one night stay. It is now terribly run down and not worth the cheap rate.

Staff outside hotel totally awesome. The guy with Cambodian wife is always working and i can see that the owner will not invest a penny in the property. Hotel still needs cleaning outside and improvements like removing trash, mattresses etc but it appears that they are trying. When restored in 96 this was the gem of Sonora. Needs help!!!!

The staff are friendly BUT the place is old and very run down which is ok BUT the floor in both bathrooms were disgustingly filthy and dried vomit on the pavement outside the room.Very dirty.Stay somewhere else!

Ok, so The Gold Lodge is one of the cheapest places to stay in Sorona and its really not a terrible choice. The staff is really friendly except for the older lady who seems to be the manager, she stares at the customers and staff with exasperation-but never speaks. The maintenace guy and reception staff are really accomodating-locals with great suggestions re: food, attractions, etc. The room was small and the bed was sort of a soldered rollaway mutant-it was impossible not to meet your bedmate in the middle of the bed within seconds of laying down. We actually switched rooms after our first night because the TV was broken. The next room was similar but without a refridgerator-the maintenance guy immediately ran down to our old room and grabbed the fridge and offered us any other anmenities they had available. The pool was like an oversized petri dish-you don't even want to walk close to it-let alone go for a swim. All in all I say its not bad here but really for about 10 bucks more a night you can stay at chain hotel or other local option. So if you are on a budget this place will suffice, but if you have an extra 10 or 15 dollars to spend per night I'd consider upgrading.

Many of the other reviews here are a bit to harsh, so with this contribution I would like to show another side of The Gold Lodge. The room we got had all the facilities you might need: microwave, fridge, a spacious sink area and cups, phone etc. The motel included a little breakfast and the lady at the front desk was polite and helpful. It is easy to find close to the bigger roads and still near the center of Sonora. We did forget our cell phone in the room and the cleaning staff have been very helpful to send it back to us. We never thought we would get it back. If you read this - thanks again! You should not expect too much in this price range. If you want a cheap motel in the area, I would recommend this.

From the outside this place looks nice, but don't let that fool you. Our room was old, dark and dirty. The curtains in the back of the room were a lightweight white cotton and about a foot short of the window ledge, so NO light was blocked. We ended up covering the window with an afgan from our car. The toilet had what looked like poop all over the hinge. I complained and someone cleaned it up. I was told it was rust...NO WAY was that awful clump of brown stuff rust. In the morning we noticed all the cobwebs on the walls, with spiders in them...UGH!! We were also told that the hotel was going to be refurbished. I don't know if that's true or not because it looks like this place has had bad reviews for years. On the plus side, the front desk gal was very nice.

Omg the WORST hotel I've ever been in. Just plain gross. Filthy, should have realized when at check in they went over a list of costs $10 for a towel etc. I said " you charge for towels, pillows ...?" "Oh no just if you get them real dirty" ugh do NOT stay here oh and only two rooms have wifi. Get there early if you want wifi better yet sleep in your car.
"Do not stay here"

What a dump! Rooms are old and run down. No phone in room, no toilet paper, curtains falling off rod, no closet, shower full of mold, windows would not open, air conditioner so loud could not sleep. Dog poop all over back drive way. Bed spread so dirty and smelled. Lots more wrong but this is just a few of the things wrong with our room. I would not recommend this motel to my worst enemy. Continental breakfast was junk food, prepackaged sweets. Coffee was not hot nor good.
"Ok if not fussy."
To sleep its ok, air con very noisey and old, questionable effectivness. Bed was hard, suits me but not the wife. TV worked fine. Advertised wifi was non existent. Fridge freezer and microwave in the room, fridge not switched on though, so wouldn't be much good for a few hours or more. No towels for the shower. Get up early for the breakfast or it will be gone. On the positive side, very peaceful during the night (air on drowned the noises out possibly) and the staff very friendly. Spend a bit more, stay elsewhere.
