I was just passing through the area. Getting ready to head up and over Tioga pass.

never again
The room had a musty stale odor that would not go away. Checked in and left for a concert. When we returned to the room we discovered that the shower curtain had tons or dirty or mold on it. There may have been mold on the base of the bathroom base boards. Television did not work. Pieces of paper had been place under the bases of the ceiling fans and the bathroom vent to keep them from vibrating and raddling. The bed was like sleeping on a piece of plywood. I know that it is listed as a historical hotel but the items listed could have been easily corrected. The room was not worth the dollar amount charged. The staff was friendly and help with regards to directions and sights to see.

Ok stay with minor problems
Front desk credit card machine didn’t work, so had to pay full amount cash. First room wasn’t properly cleaned, so changed. Second room had towels in windows as curtains. Noise from the street trough old thin doors and windows. Breakfast very basic

Quaint Historic Landmark
Quaint is how I would describe this hotel. It’s unlike any hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Very old yet full of character. The staff was so friendly. She walked us to our room, then pointed out the breakfast room for the morning. Our room was comfortable, though I had to laugh at the ancient TV. The bed was comfortable. I did notice mildew on the shower curtain and a torn towel, however. Breakfast was all homemade. The waffles were excellent! Overall, a nice stay.

Kind of rundown and shabby. Street noise kept us from being able to sleep until 3am. Saving grace was the good breakfast included. Well located in Sonora, but we will be staying in another hotel when we return.
