“Fantastic Boutique-like hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We just spent a weekend at the Elm House Inn and it was the best part of our stay. It has the feel of a B&B and was just exceptionally warm and cozy, particularly due to the huge Christmas tree and the fire place. Breakfast was amazing and had a huge variety and the 6pm cookies were great as well. Tea, coffee, and hot chocolate was available all day and I was constantly eager to just go back to the hotel and relax. The location was great for our purpose as well as it was a few minutes away from downtown Napa and the staff was very nice and helpful. Definitely above and beyond all expectations. Looking forward to returning again soon!

Stayed with my wife one night at BWP Elm House Inn in Napa and I was very pleased. You can tell that owners and staff put every effort in trying to make your stay a memorable experience and work hard to the very detail toward this goal... Room facilities were quite good, the room in the annex was spacious and comfortable, the property itself is lovely, food was excellent and hospitality was great. Would definitely reccommend for anyone to stay here when visiting Napa.

Room Tip: Top room in the annex worked pretty well as far as noise.

Moderate price and I swear you feel like you are in a b&b. Heck the dining room is in their main room which feels almost like the den of a big house. I walked right out my door to eat breakfast in my socks because I felt like I was at home. I'm going to come back to Napa most definitely and will be staying here for a longer period than our last stay.

Stayed at the Elm House Inn when visiting Napa/Sonoma for several years. Located conveniently to Napa and Sonoma. Rooms are always clean. The Kearns and their staff are wonderful and breakfast is a real treat!

Good: Located just blocks from downtown Napa and its famous wineries, restaurants and shops.
This inn features the charm of a B&B combined with the amenities of a full-service hotel.
An excellent healthy breakfast is served in the morning and homemade chocolate chip cookies by nightfall.
Bad: Located on a busy road junction, with the crossing right in front of it.
If you happen to have a room facing the street-- forget about nice deep sleep in the morning.
We were woken up at 6am by heavy traffic noise.
The heater in our room was a little loud and the staff was "too evidently" friendly.
When you make your reservation, make sure your room is overlooking the garden.

Room Tip: make sure your room is overlooking the garden.

We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay when visiting Napa Valley. Every person we came into contact with was warm, cheerful, helpful, and polite. They were proud owners and employees as they should be. It is small enough to allow more personalized service. A wonderful breakfast was served each morning with a variety of options from homemade breads, oatmeal with all the possibilities you can think of to add, fruits, and a special made waffle at your request. Each evening the smell of homemade cookies would draw us to the gathering area..absolutely delicious!!! The staff was very helpful to suggest places for dinner. The grounds were beautiful!! The attention to flowers, plants...landscaping made it very special to walk through or to sit and relax and enjoy the garden. Our room was spacious and very clean. The bedding was comfortable. We slept like babies! We wouldn't think of staying any place else the next time we visit. Since we've returned home we've talked just as much about where we stayed as we have about the wineries we visited....and we visited a lot of wineries!!!! Thank you, Elm House, for making our trip a special one!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the building next to the main hotel. It was very quiet and we enjoyed walking through t...

Great Best Western. It's very quaint - you felt like you were at an Inn and not your typical Best Western. We checked in later in the evening than planned for our Thanksgiving get away. Hotels.com didn't notify the Elm House with our special request but luckily the owner was able to take care of us. Our room was just off the lovely back garden with a running fountain and hot tub which we enjoyed all to ourselves that night. Clean room and comfortable bed. Very warm and welcoming complimentary breakfast in the main building - it was a perfect start to a great holiday
in Napa Valley!

Room Tip: Request a room off the garden - ground floor.
