We stay one night just 1 week after hotels in Napa became open because of COVID-19 quarantine. We stay in 2 bedroom room that is the only one is small house ( maybe railroad station) wheras all other rooms are real railroad cars. Hotel administration was nice and allowed us for earlier check in ( 2PM instead of 4PM). Main room has huge bed, small coffee maker, small refrigerator , and small TV. There is not any table but it had 2 not very stable chairs. Hotel is located in the center of Youtville, close to everything in Yountville. maybe that's is why it looks overpriced >400$ for one night... Hotel has car cafe where was very good pastry. Hotel looked very safe during COVID time.

We had a nice time, except we never saw anyone that worked there the whole time we were there. We ended up helping others that didn't understand how to get their keys or which car they were in. Also, a new place behind the train cars had a wedding that went way into the wee hours with very loud music. Other than that it was just fine.

My husband and I loved the accommodations and location of this inn. The room decor is smart and tasteful and the property is very well maintained. The location is convenient for access to restaurants and shops in Yountville, all within walking distance. The inn management assisted us in booking tastings and restaurants, and the recommendations were spot on. The mini Model cafe was a welcome and convenient addition and we had breakfast there during our visit. We enjoyed our stay immensely and plan to return!

After several trips to Yountville, we opted to give the NVRI a shot. To be honest, price had everything to do with the choice and what a present surprise. Each room is its own box car so narrow but long. The covered area in the common section contains rockers, chairs/loveseats with tables, etc. A great place to have a cup of coffee and nice little baked good from the little Model Bakery, literally attached to the ‘train’. There is limited space for clothes, but you can manage. So you don’t have the pool, champagne breakfast, but not really needed, you save a bundle, the location is as convenient as can be. Highly recommended, but book early as space is limited.

Napa Valley Railway Inn offers a fine option for those suffering sticker shock when contemplating the ulta-luxe accomodations in Yountville. There is flair and style and history and comfort here, enough to satisfy most discerning guests, and at a way more reasonable price. Historic background: A group of 120-year-old refrigerated boxcars from Oregon has been grouped together on some of Yountville's few remaining railroad tracks with an open-air courtyard linking them that is nicely outfitted with chairs, tables and rockers. The effect is charming, but real, definitely not too "cutesy." We stayed in the caboose which featured a cupola skylight area over a superbly comfy king bed, a little sitting area with easy chair and a modest-sized bathroom with all the expected amenities. Only two problems prevent this fine lodging from earning five stars -- a bathtub that drained very poorly and a refrigerator in a side table enclosure that didn't work, two defects that should have been caught by housekeepers or management. One modest suggestion for improvement: The on-site Model Bakery makes the world's best English muffins (ask Oprah) and it would be nice if the Railway Inn would arrange a discount there for guests since no breakfast comes with the rooms here. A final note: Yountville provides a perfect locale for touring the Napa Valley, since it is enough off the main Highway 29 freeway to be an oasis of small-town charm without the traffic jams that mar many other places there. We'd definitely try to stay in Yountville and at the Napa Valley Railway Inn whenever we return to that lovely area.
