“Cute rooms, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2004

I already read the other reviews of the Napa River Inn on Tripadvisor.com, so I arrived there with tempered expectations. Fortunately, I did not come accross any of the issues/complaints that some of the other reviewers pointed out.

The staff was especially friendly and helpful. The breakfast in bed was a nice touch. The hotel was walking distance to a lot of fine restaurants. Our room was well appointed and well-worth the price I had paid online (considering that it was peak summer season).

The only negatives that I found were that our room faced the courtyard restaurant, so I could not open the blinds if I wanted privacy. Parking was somewhat limited too. I could hear the people from the upstairs room, but I don't know if that was the fault of the hotel or if the upstairs guests needed some more time on the treadmill.

All in all, it was a very pleasant stay. The positives far outweighed the negatives, and I would definitely want to stay there again.

We've been the the Napa Valley many times and found this to be our favorite hotel in either Napa or Sonoma so far. They are new, so they try harder.
The staff is just wonderful- friendly, helpful, with lots of great suggesstions on where to go and what to do. Actually, they are not far away from the wineries at all. We usually don't like to visit the tourist-ridden wineries along highway 29 anyway, and prefer the smaller production, high quality wines in the Carneros district and along Silverado Trail. We were also given free tastings at the Bounty Hunter and Vintner's collective, right down the street! The rooms are wonderully appointed- they obviously spent a lot of money on the furnishings, and included in the room was breakfast, coffee, spa products, and free delivery. No other hotel we have ever stayed in has given us so much. We will definately be back in the fall!
