Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

The Allmusic review by John Bush awarded the album three stars and said that "Sarah Vaughan's contribution to the genre of saloon song LPs, doesn't have a stellar selection of material...Benny Carter's refined arrangements and ensemble playing don't exactly reinforce the isolation of the title, but Vaughan sounds excellent on "I'll Never Be the Same," "These Foolish Things," and "If I Had You"...Hopefully, Carter wasn't responsible for the occasionally canned sound of the strings; The Lonely Hours is a solid match of vocalist and arranger in most respects, with only the quality of the material weighing it down slightly".[1]
