This was our second visit to Silverado. Give credit to Lori for doing her best to overcome a major booking mistake (we had specific reservations for the Merlot house 5 months in advance and, upon arrival from Texas, were informed it was under renovation). Our party consisted of 3 couples needing 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, which was not possible other than the Merlot. So, after several discussions, Lori made a nice financial concession for us to accept lesser accommodations. So, on to the review . . .
Unit 806S - 3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms -The kitchen and bathroom counter tops were acceptable but dated (for Silverado's price range, granite counter tops would be nice). The wallpaper in the bathrooms was a pretty clear indication of age. The interior doors are plain flat wood veneer doors that give the appearance of homes from 30 years ago. Kitchen cabinets and appliances look to be 20 to 30 years old. We certainly didn't go to Napa to watch TV, but to have no stations provided in HD was a bit of a surprise. We did have a nice back porch area facing #8 and #12 fairways on the south course. We also watched the fireworks display the evening of the 3rd from the area right outside our back door, and that was really nice.
We did not eat at the restaurants, but used the spa for 3 messages, and they were done well. The south course golf course was a nice layout with some good water features. Greens were in pretty good shape. Based on reading reviews of golf courses, it was hard to pick a course that was really a "nice course." However, I can say that after playing the Sonoma Golf Club and both the North and South courses at Silverado, the Sonoma Golf Club course is clearly the nicer course. I'm not saying the Silverado courses are bad, but there is a better course in Sonoma.
The grounds at Silverado resort are maintained very beautifully. It is time in this resort's life to start spending money on refurbishing the actual accommodations and structures. It is a large enough resort to do this in phases, still operate the resort, generate revenue and give the place a well-deserved facelift to the interiors of the resort accommodations. Just make sure, in the event of a specific reservation, to notify your guests in advance of their arrival if a particular unit is unavailable. That is just simple common sense and a staple of good customer service.
