Allison V. from Covina, CA said “What an awesome experience from the moment we checked in. I called 2 weeks prior and a gentleman helped walk me through some great deals from your site. And boy did we get one. Pizza, soda and a movie not to mention a steal on a room for 4! Everything and everyone was wonderful!!! We were on a road trip and we are going to do it again next year and we are staying at Sonora! Thanks for everything!!!! “ July 28, 2011

Harrie B. from Amsterdam said “We would like to express our pleasure in staying at your hotel, last week. It was really a pleasant surprise. We choose your place because we travel with a dog, and the welcome was great. Also, after we encountered a problem with a touringcar, you were very adequate in finding a solution by putting us in another room. So we will recommend you and surely we will be back. And we liked the rooms, big and clean and comfortable, with a lovely patio. Also we appreciated the Spa, and used it every evening. Very clean and well taken care of. So I would say 4,5 stars out of 5. “ Mar. 9, 2010
