Great location for Yosemite. Great room - very clean. The wifi was very slow and I could not send a text message with a picture attached. Otherwise, we were very pleased. We enjoyed watching the quails from our deck and would definitely recommend this property.

Unless you've been told it exists, you won't know that this is back behind the Idle Hour Winery. My friends stay often and rave about it. The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. We still had room after fitting in a rollaway. Spacious bathrooms and each room has a back deck to lounge on, and enjoy the scenery. There... More

Oakhurst is locatd in the South entry area of Yosemite. The Queens inn by the river is a nice and cosy place. It is located closely to a winery on its property and therefore has a beautiful winebar next to the rooms. It is a really pitoresque surrounding. The breakfast is easy and good...continental stuff. The downside of the popular... More

The hotel was nice and the staff was accommodating. We arrived late, so we did not get to enjoy the property as much as I would have hoped. There was a nice wine bar that were able to relax at. Had to leave early in the morning, so did not get to explore the property much but it looked nice.... More

My husband and I were 2 nights at Queen's Inn at Oakhurst and we really enjoyed our stay very much. The room is really big, the bed very comfy and everything very clean. Breakfast also good. Very close to the south entrance of yosemite park (about 20 min by car) Couldn't expect more! 100% recommendable! Oh yes! One more thing..... More

We arrived late and they had the keys waiting for us in a drop box. The room was large, the bed was comfortable and I could not hear my neighbors. Each room has it a private patio. It is down from the road a bit, so you don't hear the road noise. The location was about 30 minutes from the... More

We stayed for 2 nights and the Inn served as a base for Yosemite exploration since we did not manage to get lodging inside the park. Really nice small town with all supplies you may need. Very very friendly staff at the Inn, good bed and bedding, AC and bath. Wifi is intermittent though, but wasn't a big problem. Continental... More

Very nice, clean, modern room. High quality construction was evident. Parking close to room is a welcome plus. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent breakfast. Private back patio was great.

Loved it! Room was large, lovely, and well-maintained. Staff is awesome and breakfast was nice. River was a little disappointing...low and sluggish...but California is in the middle of a severe drought and the Inn has no control over that so maybe next year! ☺️
