This 1896 hotel is haunted by a ghostly girl who has been since bouncing a ball in various parts of the building. The elevator is also haunted, and has been known to move from floor to floor of its own accord.

  1. Hello, I had an experience when My family and I stayed at the Sonora Inn, It was around July-August 2015. We stayed on the second floor I don’t recall the room number we stayed in. So, I checked into our room while my wife, daughter and mother-in-law were out shopping. After checking in, I began walking to the room, it was on the second floor and the elevator was down for repairs. So I had to take the stairs, I start walking up the stairs and instantly get the feeling of being nauseated, dizzy and a feeling of anxiety. I just blew it off at the time to just being tired or possible coming down with something since they had a lot of smoke around the area due to the wildfires. I entered the room (room had two beds to be noted for later on) I laid down and watched tv about an hour later until my wife texted me that they were down stairs. I exited the room and walked down to the first floor to head outside to grab our luggage. Once I left the second floor the nauseated, dizzy and anxiety feelings instantly went away, I thought to myself “that was weird” and again blew it off. I grabbed the luggage from my car and went back to the room and the feelings would come back. I asked my family once I got into the room how they were feeling and they were fine. These feelings continued throughout the evening. When the night came and we went to bed, my daughter (2 years old) had gotten up a couple of times during the night and would sit on the floor and seemed to be playing with someone that wasn’t there; I would tell her to go back to bed and she would. Around 3 0’ clock in the morning I felt a tug on my side of the bed were my back was facing I assumed my daughter must of gotten off the other bed and wanted to sleep next to her dad. So I reached over and felt a head of what felt like a small child (like my daughters) I put my hand under the arm (armpit) to grab her, but realized I needed to use my other arm as well to lift her. So I attempted to move my other arm and was unable to because my daughter was asleep on it. I turned towards where this child or something the size of a child was and nothing/ no one was there anymore. It freaked me out a bit.
