Absolutely loved my stay here. From the advice on wineries the staff provided via email before I arrived, to the warm welcome, the delicious breakfast and complimentary wine tasting, everything was perfect. The room had a fire place, TV, spa bath, and amazingly comfortable bed...everything we needed. Thanks guys!

Many may try to imitate the essence of a bed and breadfast but this place is THE definition and beyond. The owners are very down to earth and approachable. The breakfasts are delectable. The evening wine tastings are a nice touch in wine country. The bed is heavenly. The rooms very spacious. We will be back and without hesitation recommend The Old World Inn to everyone.

Old World Inn gave my husband and I two memorable nights on our honeymoon. We stayed in the private cottage which is a great pick for newlyweds, or anyone else looking for a quiet place to stay. The location was excellent, walking distance to tasting rooms, shopping and lots more, and a short drive to lots more vineyards. The Inn itself is also super cute, and is split up into different buildings which I thought was cool. It's also right across the street from Safeway, which sells nice wines at discounted rates (at least we thought they were cheap - we're from the east coast, and they had a lot of wines that were cheap compared to east coast prices).

The nightly tastings and sweets were incredible - such a perk! The owner and his wife were also genuinely interested in providing their guests with a great stay, which means a lot to us as travel-lovers.

If you mention you're staying at the Old World Inn to vineyards around the area you can get discounts, but we didn't realize that until after we had already done our vineyard tours unfortunately. I would definitely go back in the future to see what they have to offer though!

One last thing: a really cool and underrated thing about the Old World Inn is the projector screen and interior surround sound on the beds. On our 2nd night after a long day at the vineyards we were able to relax in bed and watch a movie in what felt like a personal movie theater. It was AMAZING. I've never seen anything like that before and would love to install one like that in my house someday!!

This place is wonderful, right in Napa and walking distance throughout town. The property is beautiful, and the fireplaces really add to the comfort. Snacks, tea, and coffee are available all day, and the morning breakfast was absolutely great. In the room, the beds were amazingly comfortable, and all in all it was just a great spot to spend a weekend.

This small B&B located in downtown Napa overachieves in every way possible where large chain hotels disappoint. From the detailed amenities of the daily coffee & deserts to the luxury of their beds / linens, you are certain to enjoy this unique find. Both Russ and Sharon (owner / inn keepers) are incredibly knowledgeable about the area and offer fantastic suggestions to suite ones agenda. The breakfasts are exquisitely prepared with afternoon wine tasting in mind which is pretty much ideal.

My wife and I had a romantic stay and would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to appreciate the simple comforts in a weekend getaway. Quiet, peaceful, and yet somehow luxurious in a pleasant and simplistic way. As a platinum Marriott member, this B&B bests your typical hotel stay in so many ways. Do yourself a favor and plan a trip here!

We just left the Old World Inn in Napa. The attention to detail and customer service are fantastic. The owners are more than happy to help make your stay memorable. The food is awesome and the wine reception was very entertaining. I was first a bit skeptical about the price per night but once arriving thought it was acceptable based on the high level of service. I would definitely recommend the Inn for a nice stay in Napa.

The Old World Inn is fantastic! My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary and we were not disappointed. When we arrived, we were welcomed by one of the owners and given a tour. The binder with restaurant menus and recommendations was a nice touch (we ended up going to one of them and it was delicious!) We stayed in the La Biblioteca room which was the perfect size for the two of us. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was much larger than expected. The best part of our stay was the breakfast. Each morning we were greeted with awesome french-press coffee and fruit and some type of egg creation. Both of us cleared our plates each morning! We are big coffee lovers and we couldn't get enough of the french-press coffee. The entire staff was extremely accommodating and kind, it really did feel like you were staying with extended family. Another bonus is the location. After a long day of winery tours and drinking wine we were spent! Thankfully a lot of restaurants in Napa are open late and are close enough to walk to. We used the innkeeper's recommendation and walked to Pizza Azzurro....again fantastic! It was so nice to not have to drive everywhere. I highly recommend the Old World Inn and we will definitely stay here again.
