“Great stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here for 2 nights with my family and we had a lovely time, it is at a great location and all the staff are very friendly! They only fault I can say is the pool wasn't overly clean however it did the job, the pool area itself is very nice and comfy but no hot tub! Being able to get free water from the lobby is very nice as the water in the room is quite expensive! Aswell having the choice of breakfast in the hotels 'grab to go' or across the Carpark to Curvee is lovely and both are very tasty! The hotel itself is very clean and tidy and I would most defiantly stay here again next time I'm in town!

Thank you very much for your thoughtful review. It is wonderful to hear about the fun and convenience that you experienced during your stay. We have many amenities including two choices for breakfast, a great outdoor patio with a fire pit for sharing a cocktail, and a pool that's perfect for relaxing poolside. Our pool area does not have a hot tub, however, we do offer river view rooms with Jacuzzis. We are very glad that these aspects were above your expectations and we truly hope to see you again in the future. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Sincerely,

Thomas McCann
General Manager

Loved the location of the hotel close to downtown, all of the staff was friendly. The bar area and outdoor terrace was very nice. Spencer was the bartender, very personable, helpful with giving recommendations on places to go as well as places to eat downtown. The restaurant Cuvée next door was good, had a nice indoor/outdoor area. All in all the experience was great and I would stay here again on my next trip to Napa.

Thank you very much for the excellent review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed Napa Valley to its fullest. We are close to the heart of Napa and our location is just across the street from the Napa Wine Train, so it's easy to explore Wine Country. Our guests have many options when it comes to wining and dining at the hotel. We have a lobby bar that's popular with guests and locals alike. We're so glad that Spencer was able to assist you with recommendations and kind service. Cuvée is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a quick bite in the afternoon. We appreciate your positive feedback and would certainly love to see you back at the River Terrace Inn soon!

Great price for the area. Cool rooms pics do not do it justice with the modern yet cozy blend. Would definitely recommend! Super friendly staff that care about their guests and their hotel. Wonderful outdoor patio with fire pit. Decent pool no jacuzzi but the water temp is heated to 82.

Thank you for the excellent review! We are so happy to see our guests had a pleasant stay with us at the River Terrace Inn. Our friendly staff really care about sharing a special Napa Valley experience with guests so we're glad they were kind and help to you. Our cozy rooms do have a fabulous interior with great rooms as well as Jacuzzis in the river view rooms. Next time you're in Napa Valley, we'd love to have you as guests at the hotel! Also, try our restaurant Cuvée for a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner. They also have a wonderful selection of brews, wines, and spirits. Thanks again for the excellent review. Please come back soon!

We had a river facing room on the 3rd floor. The room was a great size with a terrace. The staff made us feel really welcome and the location was a short walk into downtown Napa and the riverfront restaurants. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Napa

Room Tip: Pick rooms with a view of the river

Dear Adam,

Thank you so much for the great review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your Napa vacation with us at the River Terrace Inn. Our river view rooms are quite a treat and the Jacuzzis feel wonderful after a day of touring wine country. We're also glad you liked the location of our hotel. There is a free bike rental at the hotel where you can hop on a bike and cruise over to Oxbow market and downtown Napa. Thank you again for the kind review. We look forward to your next Napa Valley getaway.

Sincerely,

Thomas McCann

Stayed 5 nights here with my wife while visiting Napa Valley. The location was very good and served as a good "home base" for exploring all of the Napa Valley. It wasnt cheap, but, considering the prices of some of the other hotels it was reasonable for what you get. We had the deluxe whirpool room. The jacuzzi tub was just "eh". The restaurant right across the parking lot has a great brunch. I would stay here again, but based on what we saw, I think maybe next time we'll try yountville.

Room Tip: Being on the "river view" side was a little overrated in my opinion. No need to spend the...

Hello Daniel,

We appreciate your thorough review. We are so pleased that you and your wife enjoyed the 5-night vacation at the River Terrace Inn. Our hotel has a wonderful location, so if you're looking into wine tasting or visiting downtown Napa, we are just a short distance away from top attractions. Also, we are just across the street from the well-known wine train, which will take you to many different vineyards in the county. Again, we appreciate your great review and it's nice to know that you enjoyed Cuvée's fantastic brunch very much. We would love to see you again during your next stay in Napa. Please consider staying with the River Terrace Inn for your next visit.

Thank you,

Thomas McCann

My husband and I stayed here for a week during our honeymoon. It was fabulous from beginning to end.
When booking the room the person helping me got me a great discount.
When we arrived they brought us champagne to our room to congratulate us.
When we needed to receive a package they hand delivered it to me without me having to ask for it.
More than once during the week, the staff called just to make sure we had everything we needed.
They have food available for purchase and a restaurant across the parking lot that is delicious.
Our room was lovely and spacious. It looked out onto the river. It was cleaned daily and they did an amazing job.
We would highly recommend this place for any occasion and we hope to return again soon!

This hotel is a great choice for many reasons:
Very clean, Comfortable beds, quiet, GREAT LOCATION, within walking distance to downtown, has a pool, nice toiletries, guest robes in rooms, powerful massaging shower heads, modern and maintained furnishings, charming, private balcony, friendly and attentive front desk and a nice restaurant across the parking lot. It does have a bar that serves wine and beer only (not excited about that).

We were bummed about a couple things... no jacuzzi and a steep price... we paid over $400 for a King room NOT facing the river. Their standard room. I would have been giving this place a 5 rating if I paid about $100 less a night. In all fairness, I did look into the other hotels in the area and they were all charging around the same -overpriced for what you get.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. It is wonderful that you enjoyed your stay with us and had many restful nights at the River Terrace Inn. Our rooms may seem overpriced for out-of-town guests, however, we do charge a fair price in comparison with other hotels in the area. We hope that you understand we are not trying to overcharge, and to compensate for our equal prices we do have additional amenities that our guests can enjoy such as free bike rentals and specials at our restaurant Cuvée. We also have rooms facing Napa River and Jacuzzis if these are amenities you would like to have in your room for your next Napa Valley vacation. We do hope that you choose the River Terrace Inn during your next stay. We look forward to seeing you in the future.

Sincerely,

Thomas McCann
