We stayed in a caboose for three nights. We found our carriage to be charming, a little basic but had everything we needed. Bonus was having the Model bakery at the end of the hotel. We enjoyed breakfast from there every morning on the deck outside our room. The unique experience outweighed all the negatives but there were a few. The room AC was noisy and struggled in the +90F heat. The office was never “manned” while we were there, so to be honest it is a stretch to call it a hotel. We did not mind as our bodies were on Central time but be prepared for a hullabaloo at 5:30 am as hot air balloons take off behind the hotel at sunrise.

Property's Favorite Review
We stayed at the Railway Inn for our matriarchs 91st birthday. The rooms were very nice, exceptionally clean and the staff was attentive and catered to every request. The location is perfect and the model bakery is so convenient and their coffees and pastries are delicious. We absolutely loved the unique atmosphere and did I mention the location location location. Railway Inn is at the top of our list for “Things we love about Yountville”!

Managed to get one of the railcars. Originally booked a suite but was able to into a railcar after a cancellation. Perfect location in the middle of Yountville. Hotel had a small snack bar which was closed the days we were there (only open on weekends) but was walking distance to restaurants and coffee shop. Had an enclosed area to gather and sip wine from our wine visits. Does not offer any services but was just a fun experience.

Really enjoy this Inn. We were able to check in early, they text when your room is ready and give you the door code online. The rooms are very nice and clean. There is a spot outside your door to sit and have a glass of wine in the evening or coffee in the morning. Bouchon Bakery is half a block away for great coffee and pastries. It is convenient to lots of great dining and wine tasting. Only negative was the Model Bakery.

The room, on initial inspection, was tidy but I lifted up a coaster to find a used plaster which was really not very nice. Otherwise, it was good. However, and this was a big disappointment, despite what it says on their website, the Model Bakery next door is *NOT* open daily from 7AM- 7PM. I was saddened not to be able to get a fix of coffee and pastries during the week as had been advertised on their website. An email to management was promptly replied to with apologies but I notice today the wrong times are still being promoted. To repeat, the cafe is CLOSED Monday to Thursday. The other problem was the noisy fridge right next to the bed, but this was fixed by simply unplugging it. Also, have hotels now stopped providing any freebies? No complimentary bottles of water? It's the little things that make the difference.

I wish I could give the Railway Inn zero stars. I'm sure it's a lovely place to stay, but unfortunately that never happened... Long story short, my wife and I had to cancel on the same day we were supposed to check in due to a legitimate family emergency. My wife was in tears over what we were dealing with at home. I tried to call the owner, Lori Jones, several times, but I was only ever able to leave messages. I explained the situation in detail, and how sorry I was to have to cancel. I offered to provide her with proof of hospital admittance papers so she would know I wasn't making it up. I let her know I wasn't even looking for a refund, I was just hoping she would work with us to reschedule for another date in the future. We live in Sonoma County and have 3 young kids and so we were really looking forward to getting away for a night. But she only responded with a quick, impersonal email stating that because we were within the 10 day cancellation period, we would not get a refund nor credit for a future date. I tried again to explain but got the same response. She claimed she “couldn’t afford the loss." There’s no loss in working with the client to reschedule on a night during the down-season when they’re not fully booked anyway. It became obvious to me that the owner only cares about the money and not about the well-being of her clientele. I get it. It's Napa- they can do whatever they want and get away with it. But I would issue this warning to you- if you need to cancel your reservation here due to an unexpected emergency, she will NOT work with you. No refund. No partial refund. No credit for a future stay, or even a partial credit. No nothing. She makes sure to charge your credit card as soon as you make the reservation and if there's a last minute emergency, it’s not her problem. Please think twice before giving this greedy person your money. There are plenty of other hotel owners around here who have a sense of decency and community and actually care about the people who stay at their inns. FYI: We are not the kind of people who cancel reservations on the day-of just for fun. And it’s not like I cancelled at 10pm or something, it was actually a few hours before check-in time. I also never leave reviews like this, but this is a huge injustice and I thought you should know about it.

Gave the Napa Valley Railway Inn an opportunity during a 1 day stopover in Yountville and was not disappointed. Rooms are surprisingly comfortable. The place is conveniently located in front of Yountville´s top restaurants and plazas, so we could walk everywhere. The Inn's staff helped me with my questions through email before arriving and received my packages in the mail. The hotel has free parking and free wifi. Even though the hotel does not serve breakfast, we enjoyed buying breakfast to go in the acclaimed Bouchon bakery located in front of the hotel. Amazing, quaint stay! Would return with my kids!

Truthfully, I selected the Napa Valley Railway Inn because it was the most affordable option in the 4/5 star category in Yountville. It didn’t disappoint. Located within walking distance of the most notable stops in town, the room was well-appointed and very clean. It offered plenty of towels, ample storage, extra seating, a comfortable bed, solid daily housekeeping, and in-room coffee maker. I’m painfully picky but was completely satisfied and would absolutely consider a future stay. FYI…The room is cooled by a wall unit air conditioner. Hence there is a pronounced fan sound. I like white noise but that may be challenging if one prefers quiet. Speaking of the A/C it may have also masked outside noises. The inn consists of 2 long rows of repurposed rail cars which have a walkway in between. All room doors and outdoor seating is located on that walkway, so outside noise could possibly disturb with the A/C turned off.

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.
