“A gem in Yountville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We loved our stay at the railway inn! The rooms are spacious, clean, and very quiet. The location is perfect. We parked the car and walked from place to place. The price is affordable and worth the cost. We will return and recommend it to friends.

I would love to give this place a 4 or 5. It is quaint, perfect location, spacious, somewhat clean and loved the little fridge and wine glasses. However, the first day I woke up with a very ichy bite on my elbow, and then the next day 2 on my back. I won't go into detail about these bites, but they definetly happenend while I was sleeping. I would recommend they clean better and/or bring in an exterimnator. I didn't see any bugs, they could had been spider bites...but FYI.

It was decent enough and we had a good stay, but when I called to confirm our arrival, as well as when I stopped by to ask about check out, they seemed really annoyed to be talking to me. Another person at the desk gave me a good recommendation for dinner (Pacific Blues)- it was just too bad most of my interaction was with the disgruntled employee. Overall though, the beds were comfortable, the railway idea was cute, and it was reasonably priced compared to other places in the area. Kids love the idea of a railway car so it's great for a family.

Great location.

Really more like a motel than an inn: outdoor entrances and few services or amenities.

Water pressure in shower was pitiful.

Good value compared with some of the pricier Yountville places.

Mattress in our unit seemed old and about at the end of it's life cycle.

Stayed here for one night without a reservation, stumbled upon it and liked the idea of the carriage. Very expensive for what it was, Room was freezing as we were very unlucky as it was lashing rain the whole time which made it noisy throughout the night. Also no curtins on the top windows meant that you were up early with the light.

Bed was nice and soft. TV very small.

no one on reception when we arrived at 3pm had to call and then go to the fitness centre to get keys and pay etc.

Great carriages,great location,but.Woken up at 6.30am by what sounded like someone jetwashing the door,upon having to get up(it was that loud,similar to a jet engine!) it turned out 4 hot air balloons were being blown up 50 feet away on carpark directly behind carriages,and went on for 30 mins.
When this was mentioned to girl on reception at 10.00am,all I got was "it is kinda cute for photos though",NOT AT 6.30 AM IT ISN'T!
Perhaps a bit of warning next time please.

The Railway Inn is certainly very reasonable and has a great location. It's difficult to find places in Yountville where a two night minimum isn't required. However, I think part of the cost savings is due to the lack of staff and antiquated water heating system. Someone called to confirm our reservation, which I appreciated, and they certainly have a lot of signage directing you to pick up your key from the fitness center, so checking in wasn't a problem. The railcar itself was fairly clean, but I felt pretty cold most of the time. We turned on the heat immediately (the air conditoning was on...in February?), and it did an okay job of heating up the room, but didn't quite make it into the bathroom. The real issue I had with was with the dangerously spotty water temperature and pressure. When you're cold to begin with, there's nothing worse than stepping into a warm shower and having the water pressure drop and turn frigid. My husband was shrieking while trying to avoid getting scalded or turning to ice. I got to the point where I wondered if I should take a shower at an off time.

Due to the inconsistent (and sometimes non-existent) water pressure and temperature, I woudn't stay here again. There didn't seem to be any point reporting this to anyone, as the front desk was closed when we left, as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located in the heart of Wine Country in the center of the sophisticated town of Yountville, the Napa Valley Railway Inn provides the perfect Napa Valley getaway. Let the Railway Inn's converted 100-year old train cars provide you with memorable accommodations walking distance to Thomas Keller's 'The French Laundry,' 'Bouchon,' and 'Ad-Hoc,' as well as Michael Chiarello's 'Bottega,' and 'Napa Style.' Comfortable, contemporary and convenient, relax outside your room in the evening on our patio with a glass of wine or in the morning enjoy a specialty coffee and fresh pastry from the Java Hut Too located right at the hotel. Outside your doorstep stroll to any of the 11 wine tasting rooms, boutique shopping or world-class dining located just steps away. A mix of history with all the modern conveniences for today's traveler, make the hotel an ideal destination when visiting the Napa Valley. In room amenities include complimentary WiFi, flat screen TV's, inviting luxurious linens and refrigerators for that just purchased bottle of Chardonnay. Hotel guest rooms consist of eight steam-era railcars permanently parked in the center of downtown Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley. Each of the guest cars offers few hints of their former function: you'd never guess that No. 4 used to carry cattle or that the skylight in No.9 was once a hatch for ice-block deliveries. Providing the best location for your wine country escape, the hotel offers the convenience of not having to get into your car to enjoy an evening out in the best restaurants in the Napa Valley as well as great views of the surrounding mountains and adjacent vineyards during the day. ... more   less
