Wonderful place to stay, we were with total of four couples, the rooms were fantastic, all with fireplaces, great breakfast included and close enough to walk to wonderful restaurants. Looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: All rooms were great

We stayed over Valentine's Day to enjoy 2 days in the Napa Valley. I will echo many things already said here, but the most important feature to me for Yountville was value for what we paid. Yountville is a wonderful town and when the weather is great (as it was over these two days), Yountville is very accessible walking to lunch or dinner, wine tasting, etc. I have stayed in Yountville many times as we live only 1 1/2 hours away and love the Napa Valley for romantic getaways. Many hotels in Yountville are double the rate we paid for the King Room with courtyard view (regular King Room, not the upgraded one). The room is more than comparable to others we have stayed in at nearly half the price. A large, beautiful room, well appointed, luxurious layout with romantic fireplace and amenities. For a couple, the bathroom had a separate vanity area from the sink area and the stone shower was decorative as well as roomy. Couple that with complimentary wine tasting in the afternoon, complimentary coffee and full breakfast buffet and I will be back. Finally, I must give a plug to the friendly and helpful staff. I like friendly staff who seem to genuinely like what they do, not overly patronizing people I call "fake-friendly", who are just obviously going through the motions. I commented to my wife after checking in that the staff was very friendly and accommodating. When we left, we discovered that I had left a Valentine's gift that my wife had personalized for me in the room accidentally. It had no value to anyone else, but it had great sentimental value to me. A call to the hotel initially told us it had not been found(it might be confused for a leather bound hotel guide that belonged there). An email to the manager produced a personal check and response that my item had indeed been overlooked and the manager sent the item to me by FedEx, at the hotel's expense. Now that is customer service! When I stay in Yountville, I will consider the Napa Valley Lodge as my first choice always.

We stayed in the Napa Valley Lodge over the Presidents Day weekend (Feb. 18), 2013. Although the dead of winter, Yountville and the surrounding Napa Valley were still lovely (we got a 70 degree sunshiney day) and Napa Valley Lodge was a lovely place to stay.

We were in a King Room with a fireplace that looked towards Hwy 29 - although you can see the cars on the highway as the hotel is very close, it's not disturbing to the peacefulness of the hotel at all. The fireplace had a log provided to burn which was nice and it lasted for 3 hours - our only complaint was that the room smelled slightly smokey (but that's what you get when you have a fireplace in your room!)

The rooms were clean and well appointed - the bathroom was lovely and modern with high end fixtures (stone, tile shower, etc). Bed was comfortable. The heating/cooling system was quiet. Watch out for the super bright alarm clock light :) Small things like Starbucks coffee in the lobby all day, and free and strong wifi, and no parking fee, made a big difference.

The hotel itself was absolutely lovely - the pool area looked fantastic though no one was swimming, there was a fire pit, a bocce ball court, and best of all, it was so close to downtown Yountville with all the restaurants, bars and shopping. Complimentary breakfast in the morning in a room that overlooked the vineyards surrounding the hotel - and it was hearty and delicious (eggs, sausage, waffles, more Starbucks, champagne, etc.). Tip: Get there before 9:30 am when the breakfast room is packed to get your own romantic table near the fireplace or windows.

A great place to stay in a wonderful location. There are many places within Yountville to explore including excellent restaurants, wine tasting venues, art destinations and shopping options. The breakfast is very good and the staff is excellent! I will definitely recommend my clients stay here.

Great place to stay...Staff is very friendly and helpful. Easy access from the highway. Beds very comfortable and the breakfast in the morning is wonderful. The pool area and Bocce Ball courts are fun and an added bonus. We will stay here again and again and tell our friends to stay here as well.

We stayed in a king room with a fireplace and appreciated the fact that it was a real fireplace. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The location was fantastic! The most amazing restaurants were walking distance from the hotel. We would absolutely stay here again.

Nothing special...definitely a chain hotel feel... but very pleasant, clean, comfortable, friendly and reasonably priced for the area; comfortable beds/pillows; attractive/updated bathroom/shower; convenient location, quite close to several good wineries and excellent restaurants; nice pool area with fire pit. We were treated to a free bottle of wine for my husband's birthday and the staff were very helpful re: suggesting nearby wineries and eateries; full breakfast included... standard fare but decent enough; could see the highway from our room. Would not recommend if you are looking for that memorable place that you want to be a highlight of your trip, but great if you just want a nice, convenient place to stay while enjoying the wine country.
