We stayed at the Elm House for 4 nights while visiting Napa for our honeymoon. The staff was very attentive and nice. Our room was roomy, comfortable, homey and quiet. The location is amazing. A little walk from the downtown but soooo convenient to the high way with out feeling you're right ON the highway. We walked to downtown most often but it felt like a safe walk each time and it only took us about 15-20 minutes to get down there.
The breakfast and cookies offered are great. The breakfast in the morning is probably one of the best I've ever had included in the cost of a hotel. There was such an array of offering including fresh mini-loaves that were clearly homemade, hard boiled eggs, cereal, fresh waffles, a variety of toasts, and outmeal with a bunch of toppings. We REALLy took advantage of breakfast.
The value of this hotel vs. others in Napa is perfect. I did a lot of research and ultimately decided that we wouldn't be in the room enough to really enjoy a pricey place so it would've been a waste but this was truly the best of both worlds. The room was comfy enough that when we did have a night in it wasn't a big deal. We actually liked our room a lot.
If you're deciding between this and another pricier hotel I'd go with this! Just saying!
