When we arrived at the Inn we were greeted immediately by friendly hotel staff and check in was very quick. We stayed in the separate building from the main one and had a wonderful corner room. The room and building have an old feel to them. Our room had exposed brick inside. The amenities don't stop! Luxury lotions, shampoo, conditioner,... More

Excellent location to watch the fireworks by the Napa river after watching the ZZ top band at the Silo. I like that the hotel is near all the restaurants and boutique stores. Service is excellent. The rooms is clean and beds are comfortable. I'm just disappointed, when I booked the room on line I stated I wanted a mountain view... More

My wife and I went to Napa to celebrate our 15th anniversary and stayed at the Napa River Inn. We couldn't have been happier with the hotel. Great location in downtown Napa, walking distance to fabulous restaurants and attractions. Easy drive to wineries along Rt. 29 as well as Silverado Trail. Room was perfect, the bed was super comfortable. We... More

But i didn't. We reserved river view rooms and when we called they said that they would be sure and have the river view. And when we got there for our two rooms, 1st they try to put us in different buildings, then i end up with river view, ON THE BOTTOM LEVEL, completely blocked by trees. So long story... More

Napa River Inn, was a wonderful place to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The hotel is perfectly located, and within walking distance of many shops and restaurants. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked the river; a nice little spot to have morning coffee. The service was outstanding. My only complaint is the Wi-Fi was SLOW to almost non-existent.

The physical property is beautiful with historic restoration and modern convenience carefully blended to best advantage. The location is optimal for Napa visit: lots of river walk options for restaurants. We chose it for easy access to the Napa Wine Train depot. The hotel has a shuttle to run guests across the river and back after the train trip. Now... More

Stayed in Napa for a wedding. Most of the guests were scattered all over town. Our room had the most amenities of them all. Some payed more, some less. Our room was large with a fireplace and King sized bed. River walk area will be beautiful when full of shops and restaurants.

This hotel is historic, perfectly located, and the service exceeded our expectations. If you are interested in Napa for its historical roots, you couldn't pick a better place to stay than here. The location is excellent-world class dining and wine rooms are within walking distance. The service was perfect. We are not picky guests, but our needs were met and... More

We just completed a birthday trip that included a stay at the Napa River Inn. It was a very relaxing experience. Staff seems to come out of nowhere to open doors, offer warm hellos,etc. We stayed on the 2nd floor of the two-story Embarcadero Building which is across the parking lot from the main hotel. The room was large in... More

Dear Mark D, So glad to hear you had such a wonderful experience for your birthday trip. The breakfast in bed option is one of our most popular amenities. It's just enough to get you going for the day without putting you into an early food coma (a potential problem in Napa with all the great restaurants). The Embarcadero Building... More

This was our first time in Napa and Napa River Inn was our first encounter. Melissa at the front desk was wonderful (she changed our room to a balcony). Liz the concierge sent us to Yountville for the day and recommended some fabulous stops and restaurants. She also sent us on the scenic route away from the highway. Rooms are... More

Dear Rick B. A room with a view of the river and fireplace to snuggle next to when the evening weather has a chill is one of our favorites, also. Summer afternoons looking out on the sparkling water and watching the ducks chase bread crumbs can be pretty fun, too. Especially if you are enjoying it with a glass of... More
