Queen's Inn by the River
Ranked #6 of 10 Oakhurst B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 October 2016

It was quiet, very nice updated fixtures and nice shower, lovely grounds, nice eating area for the breakfast.
The rug was stained and worn, a turnoff for us. The breakfast was high carbs, needed some hot, cooked protein offered considering the price.
There was NO chair in the room just two small cushioned cubes and for us older folks that doesn't work. Only one rack for a suitcase, the other went on the floor
, no dresser either.
There was no counter or ledge in the bathroom to put you toiletries on.
It was clean except for the rug. The window blinds were a nice update BUT the windows need light blocking curtains added. The room never got dark. Outside lamps glowed all night and we could not sleep.
There was a fridge and microwave in a closet, but NO coffee or tea bags offered and NO cups in the room as well.
We felt it was highly overpriced for the $159 we paid and expected a lot more. When we walked into the room we both said, "are you kidding?"

Room Tip: Don't prepay.

The Inn is located in a secluded spot just off the highway. It's a very quiet place where you can rest comfortably after a busy day in the parks. The room itself is simple, but clean and very spacious. The TV is a bit old, but who goes to Yosemite to watch TV anyway? The location is very convenient to go to the parks. I`d definitely stay there again.

Please note: You should let them know if you arrive late, because the front desk doesn`t work 24/7. I warned them I`d arrive around midnight and they left the room keys in a previously informed spot.

The newly remodeled rooms are clean and spacious. A contonental breakfast is served daily in a beautoful wood beamed room with a large foreplace, or you can stollmoutside to the deck across from the creek.
The owner is very nice and will gove you a wine tasting...she is very knowledgable and I joined the wine club!
The winery stays open some nights until 10:00 but the night we were there, they closed early. We took our own wne and cheese out in their wine garden for a snack after a day at Yosemite. They had left the lights on and the 4 in our party had a nice evening.
I hope to return there one day.

Room Tip: Wifi available in public areas, but not in the rooms

Be careful with this place! We stayed for one night and, a couple days after leaving, they charged us 300$ in our credit card without any explanation. After several e-mails and phone calls, they told me it was a charge for smoking in the room. I explain we are non-smokers, and in fact, my wife has severe asthma, so if I had smoked on the room, she had ended up in a hospital. It took them seven more e-mails and one entire week to answer, saying it was "hotel policy" and they were not refunding it. They have like ten more e-mails from me, but they are not answering. I guess they saw we were foreigners and thought they can extra charge us without consequences, so be careful and think it twice before staying here! Also, the room was smelly when we first came in, so I guess they don't clean up as much as they should...

The extra charge was for the smoking that took place in the bathroom. It was explained to you why you were charged, and upon arrival you signed the contract that states that the rooms are all non-smoking rooms.

Best Regards,

We stayed in Room #1. This room was pet friendly. It was a hot day when we arrived and the room was very comfortable when we arrived. This is a huge bonus as some cheapskate places make you cool the room once you arrive to save money. The grounds were fun to walk your pet. The wine bar was closed when we arrived but looked like a fun place to unwind after a long day. Lucy provided service above and beyond and made sure we were treated like valued guests. Room #1 had a mini fridge and microwave in the closet. The room also had a love seat and plenty of room to unload your stuff.
