Seems like there are about 10 or 12 train cars that make up this hotel. They are spacious on the inside and include a refrigerator, which is helpful for leftovers in the foodie capitol of the world. Each train car is a separate room, so privacy is not an issue. As mentioned by others, location is great! Walking distance to... More

We were pleasently surprised to be in a Train Car as we were booked in the main hotel. I had forgotten to tip the maid and saw her cleaning another room, I asked if she would be the same person the next day and she said no, so I went to get her a tip. She said she was the... More

I can't decide what I think about this property, so I will lay out the pros and the cons. Pros: The best location in Yountville. Bouchon is across the street. French Laundry is a block down. A great space with a sitting area and a large bathroom with a vanity and seat. Super cheap -$150 for midweek in May for... More

This hotel is comfortable, convenient, and clean. The use of the space is excellent and this is certainly one of the more charming hotels out there. I just stayed for one night but I would enjoy spending a few more here. My only small complaint is that the rooms are somewhat dark due to the fact that there aren't enough... More

Excellent location, priced appropriately, clean room. Walking distance to great restaurants. Would highly recommend staying here and spend money on food and wine. We didn't hear the hot air balloons in the morning nor did we hear any of of the other guests at night.

Boyfriend and I stayed for two nights here, the weekend before Thanksgiving. When I was planning the trip, Boyfriend had 3 criteria: walking distance to Bouchon Bakery, around $200/night, and charging for our Tesla Model S available. We hit 3 for 3 here! This is the ONLY accommodation in Yountville that is just over $200. I was a little wary... More

In the Foodies' Disneyland that is Yountville, the Railway Inn is an economical choice (at least in the off-season) to stay overnight after a nice meal and some good wine. It's simple, clean, cute and sufficient for a no frills rest after a long day. And off course it is prime Yountville location easy to walk anywhere in town. In... More

My fiancé and I stayed for two nights, and wished we could have stayed longer! The Railway Inn is conveniently located in the center of Yountville - walking distance to all of the restaurants, activities, etc. you'll want to visit - and absolutely adorable. It has everything you need, like a comfy bed, small table/chairs, and nice bathroom. If you're... More

Admittedly, our expectations were low, given that NVRI is far less expensive than other hotels in the area. Still, the rooms are attractive, clean, in good repair; linens are great. Location is EXCELLENT, in that we could walk to good breakfast options AND easily stumble home from fabulous dinners. We were awakened early (6:30) by the hot air balloons inflating... More

At about $150 per night, the Railway Inn is a great choice for those who would rather splurge on great meals, wine, and activities than a resort style option. A couple of nit picky notes: hot air balloons routinely inflate at 6:30 am in the parking lot about 50 feet from your pillow...the noise will bother some. The units are... More
