I was hoping this place would be more than what it sounded like....a time-share resort. We checked in and assigned a room in the main building. We walked into the room and it smelled awful. My wife and I opened the windows and tried to air out the place a bit but we started to get a headache from the smell. I don't like to be the guy who complains, but I wanted someone to come up and check out the smell. We spoke to someone at the desk who offered us another room and he personally delivered the room keys to us. He confirmed that the room smelled pretty bad and upon further inspection (with a hotel engineer), we discovered the refrigerator had a leak and there was probably mildew building up under the carpet.
Anyways, all was good with the new room. We were sent to a room in one of the newer buildings. It was much nicer...bigger bathrooms and very clean!
We went down to the concierge to get our "welcome kit" - - which consisted of a map of all the Napa wineries. It was helpful, but I wasn't amused at the fact that they were trying to sign us up for a "vacation presentation" AKA TIME SHARE ALERT!!!! I'm on vacation and the last thing I want to do is learn about how I can waste money on a time share. The lady behind the counter sensed I was getting annoyed so she dropped it after the 3rd try.
Other than that, the stay at the resort was pleasant. We were touring wineries during the day and relaxed by the pool before dinner. The pool and hot tubs were great.
I'd probably stay here again, since the price point is cheap (compared to the real chic resorts in Napa).
