“Romantic vineyard getaway”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Even though this hotel is on the main road, we never heard traffic noise. We had a king vineyard room. It had a lovely patio over looking the vineyard. A beautiful stone fireplace. There was a bottle if wine in the room for us when we arrived. The breakfast (included) was fresh and delicious

Dear winebarb,

Thank you for staying with us for your romantic getaway. It was our pleasure to take care of you during your trip.

It is wonderful to hear that our convenient location still also granted seclusion and privacy, and that you were able to enjoy the peaceful vineyards from your patio.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Harvest Inn soon, where a bottle of wine and breakfast will welcome you once again!

We stayed at the Harvest Inn in June 2012 for my husband's 40th birthday. First I'll say that the breakfast is very plentiful and very tasty. So a big thumbs up on that. It is nice that they offer an appetizer and wine sampling in the afternoon, even if the wine is not very high quality and gave me a headache with only one glass. However, it goes downhill from there.

I realize that most places in Napa tend to be more on the pricier side and fully expected for it not to be as nice as the price indicated it should be. I did not expect for the room to be as dated and worn out looking as it was. While the room was a nice size, EVERYTHING in the room looked like it had been picked up from Walmart quite a few years ago. It wasn't "shabby chic" it was just shabby. The "view" of the vineyards could only be seen by sitting in a closed in little porch area. The bed, was the absolute most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. The mattress was so incredibly soft that it offered no support. I don't mean it was of the soft and cozy nature but of the "does this thing have any support at all" nature. When I mentioned this to the staff they apologized and asked me if I wanted to move to a more expensive room. They said that it's a new mattress but I seriously question the honesty of that statement.

Overall it's not a horrible place but it certainly isn't worth the money. I saw many smaller, quaint bed and breakfasts around town that I would try out before selecting this Inn.

We stayed here for a few nights in mid-February. Our room was large, and it had a nice, large fireplace, so it was cozy. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, with something for everyone, a nice view of a vineyard, and friendly staff. The complementary wine tasting in the evenings was a pleasant surprise. The grounds are lovely. The only thing to note is that there are no restaurants within about a mile walking distance.

Dear LorsHeil,

We are so happy to hear of your cozy stay in February. The fireplace must have been wonderful on those cool nights!

It’s wonderful that you were able to enjoy so many of the hotels offerings, such as the breakfast, the complimentary wine tasting, and the vineyard views behind our property. Next time you could even pop into the lobby for a private garden tour with our chief landscaper.

Our staff looks forward to taking the best care of you again on your next visit to the Harvest Inn!

We had a couple of snafus at the beginning of our stay that the Inn immediately fixed. The grounds are lovely, the beds and linens are particularly nice. Liked the turn-down service and especially that they fill your ice bucket!! One thing that I noticed was that they change the towels, etc. every day - I like a hotel that lets you put the towels "off the floor" and then you don't get them refreshed. I'd rather that they save a bit of water that way. We were there for 2 nights/3 days. Apparently they also allow dogs at least in some of the rooms, as the couple in the room below us had one, as did a couple in another area.

Dear YourCardShark,

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. While we apologize for the snafus that happened upon arrival, we are pleased to hear that your stay ended up as great! We would love to hear more details regarding your arrival snafus so that we may prevent them in the future. Please feel free to contact me directly at your convenience.

It is our conservation policy not to refresh towels that have been hung up, so your experience has given us an opportunity to review our efforts with our team, and we will be sure to honor this preference in the future.

It is the small touches, such as soft linens, filling your ice bucket at turndown, and welcoming all guests (including those with 4 legs) to our property that we hope added to your time here with us.


We look forward to seeing you again soon!

I selected this hotel after reading reviews here on Tripadvisor. We stayed for 3 nights in a king with patio and fireplace. The room was clean and modern. The mattress, pillows, and bedding were so comfortable that I called to get the mattress info. There was a vineyard steps from our room. It was great to start the day with breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast room was conducive to exchanging vineyard recommendations with other guests. The location was centrally located to go any direction for vineyards and restaurants. The concierge was very helpful with restaurant and tasting itineraries prior to our arrival. Grounds are beautiful.

We stayed here for 2 days at the end of our trip to San Francisco. The moment we pulled into the drive our breathing changed. The grounds were plush and private. The meandering paths and sounds of water put us right at ease. The rooms were clean, the beds were amazing, and the views were gorgeous. There is a coffee bar, with plenty of supplies and nice mugs. They even provide a mini fridge stocked with free water and juice. The bathroom was clean and a very nice size. 2 sinks, nice shower, a magnified light up make-up mirror for the ladies, and a jar of bath salts for a perfect end to the day. The breakfasts were included and offered a nice variety of fresh pastries, delicious fruits and wonderful juices. We stayed in the Manor, in one of the rooms with a balcony and a hot tub. Very private and lots of seating and amazing views of the vines. The beds were so soft and had great pillows and amazingly soft linens. Oh, and the fireplace in our room was a great touch. There is a leather couch and chair, and a coffee table in that area. Great place to put your feet up and enjoy a nice bottle of wine. There was also a small bottle of Chardonay in our room as a welcome gift. Be sure not to miss the Koi pond, It's lovely. They thought if every detail to making certain your stay relaxing and peaceful. I can not wait to return!!

Beautiful grounds welcome you to the property. The rooms are large and bathrooms are huge. Love the Aveda products provided in the rooms. Also received a small bottle of wine to welcome us to the room. The staff was very helpful with local recommendations of places to go. Each morning we would soak in the view overlooking the vineyards while enjoying breakfast. I definitely would return to the Harvest Inn during another visit to the Napa Valley.
