An amazing place, with excellent service and delicious food, best risotto ever!!!! With an extensive wine list. I had the duck with Adobe Zinfandel mmmmm to die for. For breakfast our server prepare one of the best Bloody Mary's ever. Impeccable service and quality we are definitely coming back

We stayed in an amazing room overlooking the vineyard. We had an outdoor shower that had a window that overlooked the vinyard as well. So fun! Carneros has great wine but it was so nice staying there because one day we did Sonoma and the next day we did Napa. Carneros is right in the middle so it was great!... More

We stayed here during an ill-fated "skiing" holiday when, due to an absence of snow, we diverted to Napa for a few days. We escaped here looking for some relaxing down-time by a pool in an upscale hotel and weren't disappointed. The resort was everything you would expect - clean, modern with staff everywhere. It is laid out like a... More

My husbands company had a weekend getaway at the Carneros Inn last weekend. This place is phenomenal. The grounds look like a little town. The rooms are little individual cottages with their own backyards. Our room was very bright, with a fireplace and heated bathroom floors. The decor was perfect, very Napa Valley w/a hint of modern touches. The backyard... More

The headline says it all. We were sent with poor directions to different areas, none of them had what we asked for. Trying to drive around the grounds was difficult at best. Once we decided where to eat, we were greeted with bad food, bad service and a bad attitude.

It is impossible to not be charmed by the vistas in Napa/Sonoma, and this quiet little patch tucked between the two, carved out of the farmland and rocky hills that form the region captures so much of that natural charm. It is a little village, or at least feels like one, with clusters of "cabins" a central path, a "town... More

This is a fabulous Napa hotel. The property is just visually gorgeous and the views from the top are serene and beautiful. From the spa (e.g., couples massage, mani/pedi) to the food (e.g., The Farm) to the rooms (e.g., Harvest Cottages) to the service (e.g., reception, bellmen, room service, housekeeping), the experience is nothing short of excellent.

This is a delayed review but we had such a nice experience here that I thought I should write one. The rooms, the location, the design, the pool, the restaurants - everything was spot on! From the moment we arrived it was special. A glass of wine was given to us during check in. Just what we needed after a... More

We stayed at the Carneros Inn in Nov 2013 so this review is a bit delayed. The hotel was recommended by a friend who was married here and I can see why - the property is gorgeous. We booked using a Virtuoso agent and received an upgrade, $100 spa credit, and complimentary breakfast. The free breakfast turned out to be... More

Pros: Location - close to all the wineries and feels secluded from all Privacy: individual cottages Con's: Cleanliness - linen had dark smudges and black stains, grounds had dog poop everywhere. Staff: unfriendly - no eye contact from anyone. They didn't appear to want to be there. Items we used in the room such as shower cap, firewood, etc. were... More
