“Nice Place, Could Maybe Use a Renovation?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Good value when we stayed (New Year's Eve), decent brunch buffet, friendly bartender, solid gym. Perhaps the whole place could stand a bit of freshening up, though. (Then maybe it wouldn't be such a value?) Might be nice if guests could use bikes without shelling out 12 bucks an hour?

Also, check out is 11 and check in is 4? Not a lot of flexibility there.

Thanks for your time in writing a review about your stay over New Year's. I was pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable time.

I appreciate your suggestion on the bike rentals and will look into what we can do about the prices.

We hope to see you back at Silverado soon!

Rain or not, we had a wonderful 3 night stay at the Silverado Resort last week. The Christmas Buffet was outstanding. Despite intermittent showers I was able to play golf on Christmas morning (the sand traps were a mess because of especially heavy rains the previous weekend, but the fairways and greens were very playable). The fitness center and Spa are very nice and my wife enjoyed the facilities.The winter packages for the rooms are an excellent value, and the Cyber Monday promotion is a great value. We have stayed at Silverado many times in the past, but had not visited in about 20 years. We found the interiors of the condominiums furnishings and carpeting nicely upgraded. The condos are very spacious and comfortable. There was one problem with the ground floor condo we were in that faces the north golf course on Cottage Dr: in heavy rain the drainage is such that water gets into the heating vents beneath the floor, and then there is a loud water gurgling/flushing noise.
Water was not getting into the carpeted space above the slab, fortunately. The hotel moved us into an upstairs unit immediately and was very helpful. Some remedy to the drainage all along Cottage Dr facing the golf course is recommended. Nevertheless, we were very pleased with our stay at Silverado.

Since my last stay at Silverado some 17 years ago, it doesn't feel like anything has been updated, maybe apart from having wifi in the rooms. The main Mansion reception desk reeked of leaky toilets, the suite we were given by a totally disinterested clerk, had a huge no smoking sign at the front, but stank so badly of smoke embedded in the carpets and elsewhere, that my wife couldn't sleep through the night. The next day, we were moved to another, 2 bedroom suite on the golf course, but that one had all sorts of plumbing issues. An engineer came, fixed the kitchen faucet, but we spent two days basically without showers, as both of the bathrooms had no water flow in the showers, and the guy said there's just no pressure, and he can't fix it. So what are we to do?? Bottom line, this resort is well past it's prime time, and while it might be ok for the long term owners who just happen to be older, it's definitely unacceptable to most of us who have the choices of nearby hotels at about the same price. We had to buy our own slippers, as the floors and shag carpets aren't of pristine freshness, and the hotel does not supply slippers. There was about two winters' worth of dried leaves on the porch, and despite asking housekeeping to clear it, we have been stepping around it the whole time we were here. Te list is long, but the bottom line is this is the reality you will enter once at Silverado, and even friendly staff and a great golf course can't make up for 30 year old decor and facilities.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read that your experience did not match your expectations. I do apologize that your visit with us was not what you had hoped it would be.

You may be interested to know that in the coming few days we will be embarking on a major room renovation here at the Resort. Within that renovation will come things such as new carpets, paint, televisions and a whole new look to the bathrooms. These changes will showcase our rooms like never before and we know our guests will not be disappointed. Additionally, we also just announced our plans for our conference and meeting space to be remodeled too. These major changes will only restore Silverado to the splendor it once was and we look forward to sharing these changes with you, our valued guest.

Silverado is not a great place to visit in the winter months as golf, the pool and rest of the club are really geared towards warmer Northern California weather. While the rooms were clean, they are very dated and there is nothing very memorable about them frankly. The main "house" where registry and the banquet rooms are often smelled of raw sewage, the smell drove us out of there. I would try the place again in the Spring for a golf weekend however. Lastly, if you plan to visit the nearby towns - Napa, St. Helena etc, its a bit of ride. Taxi service was quick and clean though.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay with us. While we do wish your stay had gone a bit better than what you described, we certainly appreciate your feedback as we are able to identify and correct our shortcomings.

We are very close to beginning a major room renovation here that will bring the rooms up-to-date and provide our guests with the comfort and style they expect when they stay with us. We are very excited to begin the project and know that guests will be very pleased with the end result.

I am glad to hear that you are already thinking of coming back in the Spring as it is a beautiful time to come out and enjoy the golf courses and all that Silverado has to offer. We hope when you return we will exceed your expectations so that you will continue to visit us in the future.

The property is huge and gorgeous, but it's a bit of a silly place to stay unless you're in the main building.

The condos are a 10 minute drive away, and while the resort offers a bellhop to come and shuttle you, they never showed up for us after waiting 30 mins so we ended up just driving back and forth to the main building for dinner, tennis, swimming, etc. This happened so often we gave up on even pretending that the bellhop might show up.

There's really no Wi-Fi - I'm writing this from the bathroom, which is literally the only place in the two-bedroom condo where the Wi-Fi works, and then only intermittently.

I haven't stayed in Napa before, so maybe all of the "resorts" are this inconvenient, but for these kind of prices it'd be nice not to have to drive around all weekend and balance a laptop on my knees in the bathroom to check in to work.

Room Tip: Stay in the main building or don't stay here at all

Thank you for your review. I appreciate you letting us know about some of the challenges you had during your visit.

I do apologize that we were not able to exceed your expectations and I can assure you, I will be following up directly with our management team to find out why a driver never showed up to pick you up when you made a call. Clearly, we were not performing to our usual standards that day.

I will also check with our Director of Engineering and our IT manager to find out why Wi-Fi reception in your room was so poor. We will work on repairing that and making sure all the reception throughout the resort is in good working order. Thank you for bringing that to our attention.

I do hope that in the future you will give us another opportunity to redeem ourselves when your travels bring you back to the Napa Valley.

The Silverado was a nice property. We liked the condo style rooms. Plenty of space and a great kitchen.
Our check in was fine but the two other couples we were with had to wait until after check in time to get in their rooms.

We appreciate that you took the time to let us know about your recent stay. We were glad to hear that you enjoyed the property and liked your room. I do apologize that your friends were unable to get into their rooms until after our 4:00 PM check-in time. We do our very best to make sure all rooms are ready prior to that time, and I will look further into why the rooms were not ready on time.

Thank you for your review and we do hope to see you back at Silverado in the near future.

We spent Thanksgiving Weekend at the Silverado Resort and had the best time ever.
We checked in to a beautiful two
bedroom suite looking over the golf course. Thanksgiving dinner was delicious. Best of all was
the tennis clinic with Katie in the morning. PBI Tennis Program is a real plus here at the Silverado, the Pros are so knowledgeable and fun the clinics are compressive and gave us a great workout. Katie made our weekend at the Silverado the Best Tennis Vacation ever. We will be back!!!!
