If you're looking for a way to turn off, Carneros Inn is one of the nicest ways to do so in the Napa Valley. The individual cottages are tremendously romantic and each one comes with a small backyard. We had room service brought to us one evening and we hung out on the back deck and at dinner under the...

We stayed in a two bedroom cottage, with lots of space, two queen beds in the second bedroom, an outdoor living area with fireplace, private outdoor hot tub... it exceeded our expectations and was a fabulous place to stay! The fitness room and pools were amazing, as well as the on site restaurants. It wasn't too far to drive to... More

A wonderful experience and I rate it 4.5 stars. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. Driving to registration you see huge buffalo that are fenced in and part of the property. They apparently are very friendly. The actual registration area is contained within its own building. It was beautifully decorated with couches and a fireplace and it reminded me of... More

I've been to the Carneros Inn probably 15 times now and it never gets old. It's like Disneyland for adults with amazing food, spas, pools and the rooms are beyond awesome. You'll regret booking anywhere else, trust me I've stayed in about every hotel in Napa and nothing compares. Not Bardessono or anything else you'll find. The cottages and homes... More

What a place. Nestled among the wineries and the countryside, with views of the Valley, this hotel is a must-visit if you're traveling to Napa. (Careful, though, once you arrive, as the layout of the property can be quite confusing.) Rooms are large, with particularly large bathrooms, and had it not been raining for the duration of my stay, I... More

During a holiday escape to Napa from Chicago we were able to stay just one evening at THE BEAUTIFUL CARNEROS INN--but it was totally worth the expense. The service is incredible from the check-in--to the breakfast and more. Find a morning to escape to the Hilltop Dining room and enjoy the most peaceful and DELICIOUS breakfast ever as the patio...
