When I read reviews from people who stay at the same place on the same dates, and have totally different experiences, I always wonder how the reviews can vary so much.
Overall, this is a lovely resort with a few issues.
Check in was smooth, and staff was courteous. Maintenance issue was dealt with promptly, and we were called back to check on it. Our room was beautifully decorated.
As some other reviews mentioned, the walls are thin. We heard every sound from next door, and some from the hall, too.
My biggest issue was the ventilation system. There were two annoying,frequent intermittent sounds. One was a humming/whining sound that my usually oblivious spouse even noticed, and the other was a throbbing, kind of bass speaker noise.
We liked the location. It took 7 minute to get into Napa, and was that much closer when we went to Sonoma.
We think the $20.00 tasting fee at their tasting room is too high. We found other wineries with very good wines for less money. Try Cline and Jacuzzi. Technically, Sonoma, but only about 15 minutes away, with free tasting. They are directly across the road from each other. Jacuzzi also has free olive oil and vinegar tasting.
Parking is a bit of an issue.
Another reviewer who stayed there recently, referred to a $20.00 resort charge. We didn't have that, but did have a $35.00 "occupancy tax". Really? Call it something else, please. A tax to occupy a hotel? What else would you do in a hotel, but occupy it?
