“Perfect Napa B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Elm House certainly lived up to its reviews! My husband and I stayed there in July, and our stay could not have been more pleasant. The owners were helpful and accommodating without being intrusive, our room in the carriage house was comfortable and spotless, and the breakfast each morning was perfection! I especially loved the homemade individual bread loaves (banana chocolate chip, almond, lemon poppy seed) that were served warm each day! The location is perfect and is a nice walk to town. There is a binder of menus for area restaurants which was helpful as well. We will never stay anywhere else when we visit Napa.

My sister and I took a wine tour in Napa, and we stayed here afterwards. We were able to leave our car here in the morning and check-in to the hotel after the tour. The front desk was more than friendly, insisting we grab breakfast before the tour, even though we weren't official guests yet. We sat on the back patio waiting for our tour guide. When we returned from the tour, the evening desk people gave us dinner recommendations and offered us wine and cookies before we walked to dinner. We enjoyed the hotel atmosphere so much that after dinner, we sat in the lobby area to play board games they had available. This is the first time I've spent time in a hotel lobby when I didn't have to be there. In the morning, the breakfast was good, and the staff were again amazing. They made rounds with coffee and made sure the breakfast items were fully stocked at all times.

This hotel didn't feel like a hotel; it felt more like we were staying with family, as they all went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and welcome. I will definitely be back.

We visited the Elm House Inn in June. It was perfectly situated a 10 minute walk from town. The staff was very nice and accomodating. The room was cozy and made me feel like home. The breakfast spread (inlcuded) was great with great service. Quiet and aodrable. Would stay again. I highly recommend!

I wasn't expecting much of a Best Western Hotel but was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The Inn is quaint but very attractive. They have an small terrace where you can eat or relax which was great. The brunch was very good too, with a person even serving you any hot meal ordered. The rooms were comfortable. We even had a small fireplace in it.

The Inn is about 20 minutes from wine country but easily accessible. It is also one mile from downtown Napa where we were able to dine for dinner at several restaurants along with more wine tasting options.

Room Tip: There are two rooms on the first floor just off of the dining area. We didn't have one of them...

After reading a number of reviews on TripAdvisor and Hotels.com that all described the fantastic level of service this hotel provided, we decided to book a night on our California trip. Expectations were high and the hotel staff did not disappoint. They are very friendly and hospitable. For example, we arrived later in the evening and after receiving some dinner recommendations we ventured out only to discover that almost all restaurants were already closed for the night. We instead bought some snacks but when we arrived back to the hotel, she asked us how we enjoyed our dinner, when we shared what happened, she offered up plates and glasses instead. Little things like that separate good service from great service. Elm House Inn has great service.

Book early and midweek for an affordable yet luxerious summer getaway to Napa. Make sure to save room for 6PM home made chocolate chip cookies and fabulous breakfast (especially waffles) - all are worth the splurge even in Napa a town of very good restaurant eating.

We had a great experience here. Was close enough to walk to downtown, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Found the hotel to be very clean and a great value based on other places in the same area. Cookies at night were a good touch and the hot tub after long walks was clean and refreshing. The real value is the great breakfast that comes with the room charge - very good! Was in a nice little neighborhood which was good to walk around.
