“Christopher's Inn, our favourite place to stay in the Napa Valley”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is our second year we've stayed at Christopher's Inn , both times we only planned to stay one night as we were driving our car back to Vancouver, B.C. after returning from our California residence for the summer. Again, one night was not enough, the most helpful manager Sandra Cady told us no problem for us to have our room for one more night. She was always most helpful, remembered our names whenever we saw her busily working both at the desk and always being available to check on things around the property. All the staff were friendly, available, and helpful...we arrived later afternoon , in the lobby there were fresh cookies available, lemon/cucumber infused ice-water, fresh fruit, newspapers, and an expresso maker we could use whenever we liked...so welcoming. We have seen many of the rooms and suites, we stay in the small cottages, which are perfect for our needs as we don't spend much time time there so do not require much space...they are small, comfortable, all different layouts and very reasonably priced. The patio off the lobby with the water feature is lovely to enjoy the continental breakfast which was also just perfect...yogurt, fruit, fresh baking, juice, tea/coffee. The location is off the main road into Calistoga, but is quiet at nighttime.... a very short walk into the quiant town of Calistoga where we found lovely restaurtants and boutiques. We have recommended this hotel to many of our Canadian friends, who like us, travel to/from California seasonally, they also have found this hotel to be one of their favourites. Thankyou for providing us with such a lovely stay ...we'll be looking forward to being back in October once again! Debbie and Lane from Vancouver, B.C.

Room Tip: Could be advisable to choose a room away from the highway, however we only could hear the traffic in...

We loved Christopher's Inn! Our room (King Signature) was well thought out and huge. It was incredibly romantic. The staff was so gracious and helpful... and not just one... everyone for whom we came in contact. We will DEFINITELY be back. For those picky people and the Inn's owners, I'm an interior designer. The only improvements I could see would be: A. A towel hook by the shower/tub, B. Filling in the TV nook and mounting the new flat screens in front, or simply filling in the hole with a nice silk plant, and C. Cutting out the border, painting the area "white", and adding a piece of trim to resemble stacked crown molding. Instant update!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, or live in the country, select rooms toward the back of the property. T...

Dear Kellie,

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! I will pass along your comments to all of our staff. We have already added extra towel hooks in the bathrooms and have plans to remove the border in all rooms and fill in spaces where the old TVs had been placed. Your advice is spot on! We have other upgrades planned as well. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Best,

Steve

We loved Christopher's Inn. Our Room was very nice, comfortable bed. Staff was onderful. Breakfast was awesome. Very convenient to downtown Calistoga. We used the free Shuttle service to tour the winery's, which was great. A couple of things I did not like about our room was, the bathroom and the "patio". The bathroom was very small, I did not have room to put a small makeup case or anything else you would put on a hotel vanity. The patio was an extremely small slab of concrete with two plastic chairs. I would remove the chairs and not even mention the patio in the room description.

We just got back from 5 days at Christopher's Inn. We stayed in a Garden Patio Jacuzzi room that was just perfect. The Jacuzzi / shower combination was unique, decor very tasteful, bed comfy. In addition, the free wireless internet and cable TV with tons of stations made our down time very enjoyable. The expanded continental breakfast with fresh fruit, cereal, juices, muffins, toast and hard boiled eggs was a great way to start each day. Best of all was the helpfulness of the staff who knew us by name. Location was close enough to walk through downtown Calistoga and also easy access to the main road to get to the wineries, parks, etc.

Room Tip: Signature and jacuzzi rooms are worth the difference in price

Christophers Inn Calistoga was a wonderful Inn in every way...The room was very clean, beautifully and comfortably decorated, a fireplace, the continental breakfast was fresh and delicious, and the price was exceptional compared to the other accommodations in the Calistoga area. Erwin at the front desk was wonderful...from Maui, like us......he shared the aloha spirit in the wine country of California....mahalo!

Room Tip: Jacuzzi rooms are great!

We booked the Classic Queen and the room was very nice. The continental breakfast was a step up from the usual hotel continental breakfast. The staff was very good when booking and providing information regarding local restaurants and wineries.

An amazing little gem in wine country. Couldn't believe our good fortune! While prices in the area can be astronomical, this is a clean, quaint inn with a wonderful staff. Really short walk to the main street in Calistoga for dinner or wine tasting. Our room was very large and even had a double shower. The only drawback at this inn was some road noise although it didn't bother us. It is right on the main drag so there is no escaping some noise but as soon as you park your car on their property you 'feel' far away with its picturesque setting complete with fountain and patio to sit and sip some of that wine you bought.

Room Tip: we had an upstairs corner room which was very spacious. I think it would make a great honeymoon suit...
