“The Tooterville trolley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Into the category of Duh, I propose the following: people go to the Napa Valley to taste wine. Then, far too often, especially for single travelers as I was on my last visit, there is the driving of the car after the imbibing. I was staying at the Vintage Inn and wanted to get to a reasonably close restaurant - too far to walk I was told but a 2 minute drive. Knowing myself all too well, I asked about a taxi and was told it would come from Napa and ... in other words a fortune. Then, an ephinony: some bright young person at the desk said, what about the trolley? The trolley, I asked, having seen neither tracks in the streets nor electric wires overhead? They called the driver, got his answering machine - no fool he, he replies when parked - and he said, ' I will be there in 10'. Not only did he take me to Etoile, the Michelin starred resto on the grounds of the Domaine Chandon (superbly set, a waitress with the same family name as me who loved pouring the rose buble, bless her heart) but he picked me up right on schedule after dinner to take me to another event back in town. Now come on, you gotta love a town that has a trolley that takes you where you want to go WHEN you want to go: California dreamin, indeed. All thanks to a bright young man at the Vintage inn, which is a lovely place to stay as well, with a great breakfast, by the way.

What a wonderful stay we had at the Vintage Inn in September. We were three couples and we stayed five nights. The hotel had so much charm and the staff was exceptional. Everyone that works there were so friendly and helpful. They all seemed to really enjoy their jobs. Any question or request was handled immediately and happily!

Each couple was celebrating a special occasion and when we arrived at the hotel the manager greeted us and knew exactly who we were. He even helped us to our rooms with our luggage along with another staff. We had a bottle of wine and fruit basket in our room waiting for us and also a bottle of champagne for our special occasion.

We started each day with a walk down the street in lovely Yountville to the Villagio Inn & Spa which is the sister hotel of the Vintage Inn. If staying at the Vintage you can utilize the ammenities at the more expensive Villagio. We took a relaxing steam and dip in the hot pool and then showered in the luxurious showers with all of the great spa products. The spa has everything you need to get ready in the morning except your clothes and make-up. Thick soft towels, robes, slippers, toiletries, hairdryers, toothbrushes, etc...it was so clean and the attendents were so attentive. They have a sitting room too where they offer healthy snacks, etc...It was such a nice way to start our day! Treat yourself to a mud wrap at the spa. It was heavenly!

Back at the Vintage awaiting us was a scrumptious spread of breakfast foods and a chef to make your own omelette. The mimosas and bloody mary's were flowing throughout breakfast. The food was delicious and plentiful.

Afternoon tea looked really nice too but when we arrived back at the hotel after a day at the wineries we went right to the pool which is also really pretty and very relaxing. They also have bar service if you would like a drink around the pool. Great hot tub too.

The location of the hotel is excellent. We toured all day and walked to dinner each night to the great restaurants in Yountville. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and kept up so well.

The only negatives which I hate to even mention but want to give a fair review is that the rooms are in need of some updating. The furniture is dated and there is little storage for your clothes. The sides of the bathtubs are very high so if you are short like me it is a stretch to get in to the tub/shower. You have to be careful. We found the bed to be very comfy, flat screen tv and fireplace were a nice touch. We also had turn down service each night which we really enjoy.

I would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat and recommend it to all of our friends. It is a bit pricey but not in comparison to other hotels in Yountville and in my opinion Yountville is where you want to stay vs. Napa. So quaint but offers so much as far as restaurants, several wine tastings and a bit of shopping and poking around.

I would love to go back to the Vintage Inn!

Just love this place! My daughter and I spent a week-end there and the atmosphere is soo relaxing. Not to mention the spa treatment and the staff, everything perfect. We have been there before and will for sure come back next time I go to San Fransisco.

You will not be disappointed! The Vintage Inn is the place to stay in the Napa Valley. It is beautiful and service is wonderful. Pricey, but well worth it! Great gourmet breakfast and afternoon treats. Easy walk to great restaurants. Very helpful concierge.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are quiet, especially facing the courtyard.

I wasnt too overwhelmed by our room....there was one armoire (small) in bathroom for storage.....nothing else. Didn't make sense. Also, stepping into the bathtub was quite dangerous. The tubs are old jetted style and you have to step over the side and over the handrail to get in.....very dangerous. There was one full length mirror on inside of armoire door - good luck seeing your entire image, and there was absolutely no other mirror except for one I bathroom....so if you want to get ready while your husband showers you will have to be in bathroom with him. Now,with that said, it was a beautiful place with a very delicious breakfast, attentive staff and great location. I just feel it is a bit outdated.

Room Tip: There are beautiful views of mountain from your porch if you are facing highway.

We had a king bed downstairs (so not one of the upstairs rooms with vaulted ceilings

Pros:

-Excellent location - good base for exploring wine country (much better than Napa) and tons of great restaurants nearby
-Fantastic brunch with omelet and waffle stations, mimosas and bloody marys, etc
-Great room - bedding was very nice, towels were soft, working fireplace with log was great, wine in room. Style of "french country inn" was nicer than expected
-Pretty good pool area - heated pool and hot tub on this property (we didn't make it to spa at villago although you get free use there too) was a small area but nice
-Quiet - didn't notice any noise as other reviews have mentioned, but we weren't in room facing road
-Service at front desk and pool was efficient and friendly.

Cons:

-Like every other hotel in Napa area can be expensive. Look for deals on travel websites

Overall we loved our stay and would highly recommend and return

A great location for exploring wine country, as everything is pretty close and the town has some excellent restaurants (Redd, Bottega) and V Marketplace (next door) that you can walk to from the hotel. The room was very well appointed - nice fireplace - big tub with jets. The breakfast that is included is top notch and offers plenty of options including an omelet station and plenty of champagne too with indoor and outdoor seating. All the hotels in the area are expensive and having the excellent breakfast brings very good value to the overall stay. Staff was very nice, too. You can use the spas at their sister property, the Villagio, which we did not (too busy at vineyards).
