“A Splendid Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Our time touring Yosemite was enhanced by evenings and mornings at Queen's Inn. We stayed in Room 5 and enjoyed solitude there for two days. We had pleasant conversation with the desk clerk each morning while enjoying oatmeal, fresh fruits and muffins. The lobby is furnished like a cabin with numerous books about the area and lovely photographs framed with barn wood. The room had a comfortable king-sized bed that would be suitable for a very tall guest. It was spacious, furnished sparingly. The microwave and refrigerator were in a closet by the front door. The closet was large enough to store luggage, thus making it easy to keep the room tidy. The bathroom has a triangular soaking tub with overhead shower head. The grounds behind the inn, accessible from the porch, were beautiful. This is a tranquil and romantic place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 5 is worth the extra cost.

I had a wonderful two day excursion with my boyfriend. We chose to stay at the Queens Inn in Oakhurst one night.
Let me first say that I work in a very close location and chose The Queens Inn on a recommendation from the locals over my place of employment. The Queens Inn was more than I expected. We stayed in room 5, it was the corner room, very clean, has an adorable fireplace and setup was exceptional. The outside deck space was extremley private. We went for a walk on their gravel path near the river bed an the outside grounds were very well kept up even for being in the middle of winter.

Rocky the owner was easy to talk too, actually a joy to work with. You can tell he truly enjoys his place and takes pride in his inn!

A definate must do again!!

Thank you

Room Tip: Room 5 was a great room. It is the corner room so, it had a more private deck space!

Very peaceful and quiet. Perfect for my husband and I because we wanted a little alone time getaway. The room was very nice and comfortable. The bed was SUPER COMFORTABLE! We enjoyed the back door area which leads to the outdoors for a little view of nature. When we went out for some sightseeing we returned to a made up room and fresh towels which was very nice! We didn't have to request the room cleaning. Complimentary breakfast is included but we missed both mornings from sleeping in too long. Maybe breakfast can be extended an hour for those of us who sleep in a little longer. Other than that everything was perfect thank you Queen's Inn for the awesome stay! We will definitely be returning!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an enclosed back area if that matters. Some rooms had an open area and some had...

My partner and I attended the January release party at the winery on the property of the Queens Inn. We had a small fireplace in our spotless room and a porch over looking the creek. It was lovely. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They all seemed to be genuinely happy which made staying there a happy occasion. The grounds are maintained perfectly. This is a small Inn so I recommend booking reservations early.

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!
