Candlelight Inn Napa Valley
Ranked #7 of 22 Napa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We chose the Candlelight Inn because of the rave reviews from TripAdvisor. We have to say we were a little disappointed -- my review of this Inn is actually a 3.5 (but I am uable to give it the extra .5 in rating).

For me, an Inn with a 5 star rating has many amenities -- extra soft towels, a great shower, a HD Tv etc. The room we chose was the Candlelight Room -- their signature room. It was our 40th Anniversary celebration so we decided to splurge. The room was very spacious and the furnishings were charming. However, most of the amenities, the sinks, the shower were very dated. Also, in the large closet, there is a big pipe that is exposed ( not very aesthetic ).

The service , however, deserves kudos. Sam and staff are very welcoming, very friendly. The breakfast was very good in a charming breakfast room.

Stayed: June 2013, traveled as a couple

Thank-you for staying with us. Our historic bed and breakfast (established 1929) has many unique features and we try to reflect the period of the house with our fixtures and amenities through out the home. The pipe in the closet is for fire control - suppression, which is mandated by city and the fire department.

Thank-you.

We enjoyed our stay at the Candlelight Inn. Our room was lovely. It was a Garden room. The bedroom was huge and well appointed. The house is lovely. Honestly the breakfast was just perfect!! The attention to detail from the staff was just what we needed. We will be returning as it is just the perfect location in the Valley.
The location is ideal. Close to everything and yet you feel miles away... A lovely experience..

It is always nice to be greeted with a lovely glass of wine as one checks into their room!!

Room Tip: This is a charming B&B. Perfect location for the Valley. Just lovely..

The house is beautiful and is a great combination of old world and new. Sam and his staff were wonderful hosts, knowledgeable about the area, and extremely helpful in making reservations for everything necessary to make our stay memorable. As everybody mentions, the breakfasts are well beyond what you'd expect and are exceptional quality. Our first morning, we started with a fruit cup that had a bit of agave nectar, followed by banana pancakes with caramel sauce, and ended with a frittata. Sam had left champaign and chocolates in our room when we arrived. There were so many nice touches to make you feel pampered and appreciated. We cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: We spent one night in the Starlight Room and two nights in the Candlelight Room. I'd be happy t...

I always try and have a positive outlook when we travel. I was surprised to find the B&B had upgraded us from a standard king to a deluxe king room which was a nice surprise. The staff was polite and attentive to our requests. Breakfast the next morning was the best part of our stay. Now to address our concerns, the upgraded room was nice, but It needed some deep cleaning, dusting and the carpet replaced. The light fixtures in the bedroom and ceiling had spiderwebs. The garden tub in the bedroom appeared to be an afterthought as it was located in the bedroom not the bathroom area. The bedspread needed to be replaced (smells moldy) as most B&B have replaced them with white comforters and a folded designer runner.

Now to address the bathroom. The floor and shower base was dirty and needs some attention. The extremely small corner shower also appeared to be an afterthought as there is ample room for a full-size shower enclosure.

The biggest disappointment was the exterior of the property. The online photographs must have been taken years ago as the pool is extremely dirty and neglected. All of the outdoor furniture was full of tree branches and bird droppings. The cement surrounding the pool was stained with tree-sap and needs to be pressure washed.

Outstanding service, comfortable homey room, pool, snacks included with wine, and the most amazing 3 course breakfast daily. Sam, the innkeeper is a hardworking all- inclusive concierge, chef and manager. Helpful for planning activities and winery tours. Thanks for a great visit to NAPA.

The Candlelight Inn truly exceeded our expectations. My wife and I stayed at the Inn May 22-25, and it was just what we needed. A truly relaxing stay.....and as long as they continue to cook that amazing 3 course breakfast everyday - this is the only place we'll be staying when visiting Napa.
