We have stayed at this property several times in the past when it was the Yountville Inn. The last time we stayed there the hotel was worn and in need of updating. We are happy to say the hotel underwent an extensive renovation and reopened last year as Hotel Yountville.
Service - For starters, when we arrived at the hotel on a busy holiday weekend, we found out that our reservation had been cancelled in error. After a little bit of research, they found the issue and were able to for our reservation. Thank you Melody!!! This could have been, and I am sure at many hotels would have been, a very bad situation. Also on the service side, Melody asked us about our plans. We have been to the valley several times and always seek out new wineries. While not wine geeks, we are serious about or wine and consider these visits shopping trips to locate wines and wineries we we cannot get at home. While we had a few wine tastings planned, Melody made some recommendations based on what we told her we were looking for. She made some calls and was able to schedule us in to some great wineries on short notice.
Rooms - We had a king room on the lower floor. The room had a gas fire place, separate seating area, and large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The room was very clean with service twice per day. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the seating area with love seat and chair was nice for relaxing after a day of tasting. The balcony had two chairs overlooking a creek.
Some reviewers have complained about the trailer park behind the hotel. If you re on the upper floor with a balcony, I could understand that as you would be overlooking the park. Of course if you look over that you see the mountains. Yountville is growing and some day the park will be replaced by large homes or a hotel, in that case the trailer park may not be bad as you still get the mountain views. The downside of the lower floor is that there is a walking trail that goes by the patios. There are shrubs between and I did not think that was a big deal.
My only complaints would be 1) I wish there was a double vanity in the bathroom instead of the single. the bathroom is large enough and the renovation is recent, not sure why only a single, 2) The A/C unit is a single unit blowing right on the bed. I hate these units as it always seems to be too hot or cold, and the unit blowed on you in bed. Again, as a new renovation, these should have central air, or, at a minimum, not have the a/c near the bed, 3) the walls and ceilings are not very soundproof. Common in many places, but again, should have been addressed in the renovation.
Facilities - There is a very nice pool area with a hot tub. We did not use it but it looked very nice and comfortable. There is also a spa which we did not use so cannot comment on. There is a small resent that is only open for breakfast. The food and service was great. I only wish it was open later in the day for sandwiches, salads, pizza, etc. After a day of tasting, that would have been nice.
Overall, I use the term great value because it is when compared to other places in Yountville. It may not have a famous restaurant, spa, or tennis courts, but that is fine with me. I prefer it like this. The location is excellent as you can walk to some of the best restaurants in the valley. additionally, several tasting rooms have opened in Yountville so you can walk to tastings if you want.
While there are a few things I would like different, I still rate as excellent and will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend.
