After staying for four nights we loved the hotel so much we decided to spend one more night. But this is when I was disappointed with the front desk, especially the front desk manager. We wanted to stay at the same room but had to move rooms because the hotel said they were fully committed. Then we asked if we... More

Is it possible to give 6 stars?!?! If I could I would. I cant say enough about our time at the Carneros Inn. The entire property and staff are unlike any Ive ever experienced. When you first drive up you are a bit concerned. My BF said it looks like you're going into really nice army barracks. Through two gates... More

My husband and I recently spent a weekend here just to get away from the city for a bit. It's a lovely property with comfortable and well appointed cottages. We loved ours; the style is country modern and everything was so nice. Loved the patio but didn't get a lot of time to enjoy it as it was a record... More

Took my wife and family here for 1 night; fabulous. Great kids pool; the on sight restaurants are great. The adult pool at night is a treat. Outdoor patio in your cabin has an outdoor heater; and outdoor shower. My son couldn't stop sitting under the heater and looking at the stars. Go, splurge and enjoy.

Carneros Inn is a fabulous relaxing resort in a stunning and great location. Check in was smooth and swift, service throughout brilliant (although we had a wee bit of trouble getting ice delivered later in the day - but that is really the only issue).

The Carneros Inn is the perfect place to stay in the wonderful Napa Valley. It is situated on a small hill overlooking this gorgeous wine growing area. My friends, my husband and myself had booked two cottages to celebrate a milestone birthday for me; upon arrival we found these small cottages to be tastefully and comfortably designed, with discreet private...

The Carneros Inn is a really unique and wonderful hotel. The grounds are gorgeous and the view from the pool is fantastic. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. That being said the service is lacking just a little as others have commented. A note on the hotel, it is very isolated. You are at least 20 min from some... More

The grounds were well manicured and pretty views from every part of the resort. The stay and food is very expensive. The staff ... Well they are too good for everyone.
