“Disturbed by street noise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I was disappointed with our stay at the property, not due to any fault of the service or facilities. I just struggled to get a good nights sleep due to the noise of the traffic off the adjoining streets. When we checked in I requested a room off the street because I am a light sleeper and was informed that every room faced out onto the street. Nonetheless the staff were great and very helpful and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast but for me disturbed sleep left me wanting.

Ok so the title sounds strange for a hotel review but there's absolutely nothing I can fault Best Western Plus Elm House Inn!

The room is spacious, the grounds are beautifully manicured, there's a hot tub too, the breakfast spread (oh the varities!) came with freshly made to order waffles amongst choice of cereal, muffins and buns, cakes, juices, coffee tea and all!

Now, I personally think all hotel bookings should come with breakfast, because you really want to fill up before you start a day of sightseeing!

I stayed at Bardessono before this, and whilst it is absolutely amazing, the price tag of that room plus the bill of the breakfast, I'd take Elm House Inn anytime.

Also, come evening time, there are fresh chocolate chip cookies at 6pm and nothing could beat the feeling of smelling chocolate chip cookies in the crisp Napa air.

Recommendations to nearby restaurants were also spot-on! Bounty Hunter and Oxbow Market are must go places for food!

The stay was comfortable, homely, safe, convenient, clean and affordable!

This is not your average Best Western. In fact, I've never seen one like this one. It doesn't look like a hotel on the outside and the inside is warm and inviting. The staff were superb. The rooms were large, clean and complete (wifi in the rooms). If I were returning to Napa, I wouldn't even look for a different place to stay; this one is tops. I've stayed in many hotels in the past five years and this is in the top three of all of them. We had a great experience.

We decided to visit Napa during a week long trip to San Francisco. We booked Elm House Inn on the advice of trip advisor and we were really pleased. Our room on the third floor was private and had plenty of space. We enjoyed the spa one night after wine tasting. It was very warm against the cooler evening. The back garden is like a magical oasis. All the guests seemed friendly and chatty. There was a social gathering in the wonderful back yard for an hour or two in early evening. One thing you should not miss is the fantastic continental breakfast. We had boiled eggs, unbelieveable fresh made waffles, oats, cereals, fruits, freshly brewed coffee, and home baked muffins. It is served from 7.30am to 10am. We highly recommend this place. One of the best we have stayed in.

We were visiting Napa on our trip round California. Lovely room with plenty of space and really comfortable.

They were more than happy to recommend and book a table for us at a restaurant in Napa, wished we had talked to them about night two, as that wasnt anywhere near as good as their recommendation.

Definitely the best breakfast on our trip!!

Thank you Tom, Connie & your staff for making our stay so wonderful. If you are looking for a quaint country style inn in the middle of Napa, quit looking as there is nothing better. These people have redefined continental breakfast with fresh baked pastries and outstanding Belgium waffles to fresh chocolate baked cookies every night. Their staff are always so helpful and friendly. The landscaping and flowers are manicured and the outdoor sitting are is a paradise.
Thanks again and we will be back
