We struggled to find a place in Yountville where we could both wine,dine, and afford to stay. The Railway fit the bill and did not disappoint. Rooms were clean and the Inn is centrally located to all the hotspots. We'd stay again. The adjacent coffee caboose is a hidden find!

A fun place to stay in the heart of Yountville. Stayed for two nights and really enjoyed our time. Comfortable beds inside an old railway carriage. Room nicely decorated. Bathroom reasonably well equipped. The town itself is rather pricey but Yountville is a good location for visiting the local wineries and restaurants.

This hotel is very quaint in that it's in an old railway coach! Adds a bit of charm to the experience. The location and price cannot be beat, especially compared to surrounding hotels that are double or triple the cost. I would definitely stay here again for another weekend in Napa. It is right in the heart of Yountville so... More

The location of the Railway Inn is right smack in the middle of Yountville and provided an easy walk to restaurants and shopping. We parked the car when we got there and didn't move it from the lot until we left. If you are looking for a swanky upscale resort this isn't the place for you, however if you are... More

Strengths: Location is right in the middle of Yountville, making walks to restaurants, local grocery store or other sites, very easy. The communication by Heidi was great, both email and text, to inform me about location, check in, questions, etc. Great seating area between train cars, we enjoyed playing cards and drinking a nice bottle as the area is well...

So this is the year of the "Train" for us! We traveled by train down the California coast from SFO to Santa Barbara, and traveled in a convertible back up to the Napa Valley area for a couple days before we took the overnight train back to Colorado.

Almost like a Bed & Breakfast. Cozy, convenient, and comfortable. Cozy because it was in a long train. Convenient to the other restaurants and the coffee caboose. Comfortable bed and finally the a/c kicked in which sits in the window. Comfortable sitting areas to mingle with the other guests. I would go back.

Stayed one weekday night at this hotel. Rooms are actually railroad cars. They are actually bigger rooms than many chain hotels you would stay at.

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
