“Cute Inn - wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We stayed at the Inn for just one night on our way to Yosemite National Park. We were in the Petite Syrah room which was small, but was very clean and charming. We arrived after dark and it was a little tricky to find - wish we could have been there earlier to check things out before it got dark. We did have an opportunity to have a few glasses of wine at the wine/beer garden and it was very nice sitting outside. Again, it would have been nice to be here when the tastings were going on and to enjoy the entertainment they have on certain nights (we were there on a Wednesday night). Next time.....

The staff members were very nice and gave lots of travel tips for the rest of our road trip.

A charming place that's different from the typical chain hotels - LOVE the idea of the wine/beer garden!

We stayed here for one night on our way to Yosemite. It is about an hour away from the entrance to the park. There is a winery next door to the hotel with free tastings for guests. The hotel serves a minimal continental breakfast in the morning. It also has a wine bar. The rooms are nothing special. Ours had no cups, and there are no coffee makers. Breakfast doesn't start until 7:30 and we are early risers, so coffee in the room would have been nice. The location is pretty and very quiet. There was WiFi available.

We really enjoyed this hotel. For the price, location, and quality, it can't be beat. Rooms are fresh, comfortable and very clean. Recently renovated, it has a more modern feel than most of the rest of town. We had the Petite Syrah room; it wasn't the largest room, but still had plenty of space for us to spread out and comfortably fit our 13-month-old's portable crib. The back deck was fantastic for watching sun sets and listening to the live music on the wine bar's patio. Awesome atmosphere and peaceful setting. Easy drive to the south gate of Yosemite and plenty of local options for food, gas, etc after spending the day in the park. The owners are personable as well. Very friendly at check-in, at breakfast, and more than accommodating to our requests. We would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I stayed here after spending the day in Yosemite. It's about 45 mins from the south gate, and, whilst a little difficult to spot initially, just what we needed. The room was huge and comfortable, with a good shower. The room was clean and every room has a terrace with a table and chairs to enjoy the location. Free WiFi and a simple breakfast n the garden topped things off. Not the lap of luxury, but clean, comfortable, quirky and good value.

Stayed here two nights and really enjoyed it. Good rooms and good bathrooms. Breakfast is minimal and I cannot really make a fair comment on customer services because I did not call upon staff at any point. Wifi is non existence but who cares when you are at Yosemite. I would stay again and recommend this place. It's about 30 minutes from Yosemite park entrance.

Stayed here for two nights in the petite syrah room during a recent trip to Yosemite. The hotel is clean, and modern though with a rustic feel with fireplaces, and patios that open up to the creek behind the motel. The front desk staff was really helpful, and when my husband and I bought a bottle of wine though realized we didn't have an opener, they opened up the winery for us (even though it was closed), to open the bottle for us, and provided us with nice wine glasses and a wine stopper to use while we were there.

The beer garden is beautiful, though closed on the days we were there (Mon-Weds). Staying in Oakhurst was ideal as it had gas stations, restaurants, grocery stores etc to make our trip comfortable. We were between staying here and Tenaya Lodge, though the price difference was substantial and I liked the location of being in Oakhurst. Great hotel and we'll definitely recommend to friends and family visiting Yosemite.

Make sure you use GPS because it can be a bit hard to find.

We stayed at Queens Inn as part of our yosemite trip. While it was a bit difficult to find, we found it to be a peaceful, restful inn. The grounds has well tended flower beds, which make the place feel homey and each of the 8 rooms had it's own deck or patio. We could sit on the deck in the am and look at the river while having coffee. The room size was adequate and the bathroom was a nice size, well maybe a bit more counter space would have been nice. Very clean though and the bed was comfortable.
We did have a glass of wine at the wine garden, but once served, the girl tending bar sort of ignored us. The guy in the lobby in the am was nice though.
