Blackbird Inn
Ranked #16 of 22 Napa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 18, 2012

I honestly thought the Blackbird was a bit average and overpriced. I thought the staff was friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was actually very nice and served in the front room of the hotel, which is pretty. The exterior and common areas of the B&B is nice, and the price is right. I was less than impressed with the room. Very cramped and not really upgraded at all. The location is Napa is good, however, I would recommend staying in Yountville. Might stay here again, would be much better for $50 cheaper per night.

Room Tip: Request an upstairs room

Quaint b&b in central Napa. Within walking distance to all points of interest and restaurants in the downtown area. Friendly staff works from 7-7 so nights are without staff which was no problem. Delicious homemade breakfasts each day with wine and snacks in the afternoon-after all its Napa! Price was fair given location and time of year. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: Great location in Napa. Room faced the street so street noise was a minor issue. Each room is unique...

We booked this hotel at the last minute and what a great find! Intimate feeling, beautifully furnished and decorated in craftsman style, quiet, clean, good sized room and bathroom. Enjoyed the breakfast, afternoon wine & appetizers. Within walking distance to restaurants, shops and the Oxbow market in the town of Napa. I'd recommed this hotel for couples. Wish we'd stayed another day.

Tristen and the entire staff at The Blackbird Inn were incredible. They made our honeymoon experience better than we could have expected. The breakfast was delicious. The afternoon wine and snacks were fantastic. Wine country offers and suggestions were really helpful.

You simply can't go wrong staying at the Blackbird Inn!

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony and a tub with jacuzzi which were both fantastic

Third time to stay at the Blackbird- Very convenient within walking to multiple restaurants in Napa. Staff was attentive and nice - Beautiful example of what a Craftsman home looks like. ( don't expect it to be new and fancy )

We had a terrific time at the Blackbird Inn last weekend with 4 other couples.
It was a great home base to explore wine country and thoroughly enjoyed great breakfasts and wine & cheese in the afternoon.
Our king sized bed in guest room #2 was very comfortable with a private shaded deck to allow a few quite moments as well.
Located within easy walking distance to down towns restaurants, the public market and American Legion Post 113.

Room Tip: Make sure you spend time with other guests and share experiences. We were reminded that Muir Woods w...

We spent one night here and then one night in Calistoga. It was good to have one night closer to Napa downtown to see what that was like, but downtown Napa is the most southern portion of Napa Valley and not closest to all wineries, but we did save a bit of money by staying here one night, going to the more southern places, then heading up North to Calistoga. Yountville looked awesome, and more like what I imagined Napa to be, but was a little more expensive if you have that to consider - there is a four sisters inn there too that is slightly more affordable than others. If I go back, I'm trying Yountville.

Blackbird Inn itself was in a great area for us for the one night to try out downtown and had easy access to lunch and dinner and not far from the more southern wineries - we went up to rutherford on first day. It's also close to downtown tasting rooms and wine train in town.

We stayed in room 3 - right next to checkin area and back door entrance, but the room was pretty big and bed was set back enough so that it was not too noisy. (It was a little noisy when our upstairs neighbors came in later that night, but they just seemed like loud people slamming doors, wearing heels and such). It was really nice to have our own back terrace/deck. We were able to leave and enter from that back deck, so we barely needed to go into main areas, so it felt pretty private. We were also able to get take breakfast from the buffet style in the morning and enjoy on our patio as well, which was nice. Most of the private deck on this room was surrounded by landscaping to keep it private, but my only *minor* complaints is that there was a small section near the exit that could use some higher landscaping, because there was a small little spot that had visibility to a part of a next door parking lot. Most of the time it was fine and no one was around, but during breakfast some guy was just out in the parking lot next door smoking and chatting with a coworker or something, so that was a little annoying. It wasn't that he was too near us, or creeping, but still visible through the side angle, and I hate smoke. Other notes - TV is very small, but we didn't really use it, shower is enormous, no full length mirrors and it also would've been nice to have some throw blankets to have outside on the chillier mornings. Otherwise, great stay!

Also - we ate at Gott's for lunch, good burger and Fish Story for dinner, pretty good food there too.

Room Tip: Room 3 has private outside deck
