“Nice Enough -- You Pay For Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Everything about this property is fine. The grounds are better than the rooms, and are charming and well maintained. The lobby, with lovely teas and breakfasts, sets a tone of welcome, casual elegance. The rooms are acceptable, with an over-done 1990s rustic French vibe that was once hugely popular but now seems dated. And if you over-use fabrics, you should probably deep clean them every five years or so. Yet despite my qualms, this is usually where I stay in Yountville. Neverhteless, the price point is irksome. It's like buying a a full price walk-up ticket on a US domestic airline. You pay top dollar for a product that's dated, verging on shabby, and not up to international standards. That's how market pricing works.

My wife and I just returned from an anniversary celebration in Napa Valley. We find that Yountville's central location to be ideal to maneuver up and down Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail. The restaurant choices in town are also nothing short of remarkable (no need to name drop). Within Yountville, the Vintage Inn has become our favorite place to stay and is literally steps away from dining. It would be hard to overstate the location...after a day of wine tasting and the probability of even more great wine with (an outstanding) dinner, not having to get in a car and drive makes the site unbeatable. Add to that the Vintage Inn's charm, attentive staff, tranquil setting, bountiful breakfasts and afternoon teas and you have a combination that is difficult to top. The rooms are spacious, nicely appointed and well-supplied with just about everything, including a fireplace, jacuzzi and in our a case a complementary bottle of champagne to help us celebrate the occasion. We would suggest getting a room closer to and facing Washington Street, a little quieter than those nearer Highway 29. But not to worry, they're all wonderful. We look forward to returning soon.

I got my Vintage Inn reservation through Hotwire for a very reasonable price and we couldn't be happier with this spot where we celebrated our 20th anniversary. Bouchon and Bouchon Bakery are just across the street. Yountville's a wonderfully picturesque place. The Vintage Inn had a generous breakfast included, along with a generous sized room with jacuzzi bath, fireplace and a general touch of luxury.

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Vintage Inn and I would look forward to returning there sometime. The Inn is located in what appears to be the middle of Yountville and a quick walk
to restaurants, a bakery, coffee shops, shopping etc. The grounds of the Inn are lovely with ponds, fountains and flowers everywhere. Our room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was large with a jacuzzi tub and wonderful shower. Lots of fluffy towels were provided along with two nice robes and great L'Occitaine bath products. We had a nice fireplace with a Duraflame log all set to light. A complementary bottle of white wine and wine glasses were waiting for us as well. As we were on the ground floor our french doors led to a small private patio with several chairs. The bed was very, very comfortable and the atmosphere was peaceful. One night was not enough to fully enjoy all the amenities of this beautiful room but we did our best. Other nice features of the Vintage Inn were a beautiful pool with great lounge chairs and an outdoor jacuzzi.
A nice "tea" was set up in the lobby in the afternoon with drinks and nibbles, and a great brunch was provided/included the next morning, complete with a full buffet table an omlette bar and mimosas. The staff we encountered were courteous and friendly. I would love to stay here again sometime and would highly recommend it to others. The price is a bit steep however it is a first class experience.

My wife and I stayed at the Vintage Inn for a few days while visiting area wineries. We would absolutely recommend the Vintage Inn to friends and would certainly stay there again.
(Actually, we're already looking forward to going back!)

-Unbeatable location: easy walk to The French Laundry, Ad Hoc, Redd, Bouchon, and Bottega (among others); also, a short drive to countless vineyards

-Friendly, helpful staff

-High quality, spacious rooms

-Great (complimentary) breakfast

-Ample parking

Room Tip: Try to get a second floor room; you won't have to listen to anyone walking around above you.

Stayed at the Vintage Inn, in Yountville,CA. Loved it. The room was lovely, with a large patio to enjoy. My only problem was a bit of noise from the nearby highway.But the room was totally comfortable, and the hotel grounds beautifully laid out.I did have a problem with 3 different housekeepers knocking on our door, all morning, wanting to service the room. The 2 of us wanted some romantic alone time, and this happened between 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. Housekeeping, and the hotel, need to realize that some people stay in their rooms, and venture out later.

Being a resident of the SF Bay Area, I've done my share of day trips as well as overnight trips to the Napa Valley. These days, I just stay in Yountville and leave the driving up and down Hiway 29 to the rest of the crowds. Yountville has a great selection of tasting rooms, shopping, and restaurants (French Laundry and Redd Wood, anyone?), and hotels - Villagio Inn and its sister property, Vintage Inn, being two of them. The rooms in both are pretty identical -- spacious, comfy bed, Nespresso machines, and we often get upgraded to a suite on the second floor which has a nice balcony. The breakfasts are great in both, though the one in Villagio Inn is a bit more generous. Overall, Villagio is a bigger property so their afternoon activities (tea, wine tasting, bar offerings) are better. The spa is here, too, and I've never had a bad experience there, both in terms of service or cleanliness. I've often stayed here when there's a special occasion (b'day, anniversary), which I mention when I'm making the reservation, and the staff never fails to recognize it by having a bottle of bubbly delivered to my room (in addition to the complimentary bottle of wine that comes with every reservation). I highly recommend both properties!
