We like a nice place. We travel a fair amount and are fortunate enough that we can enjoy nice lodging. We hadn't been to the Napa Valley before but our friends had. They had suggested Yountville and we weren't disappointed. The ladies researched places and we were very happy with The Vintage Inn.
The Vintage Inn is a collection of small buildings with 4 units in each. It is not a traditional hotel building. Its almost as if you are walking through a condo complex with separate buildings. The front desk is in the main building and is separate. The morning breakfast is held here and is included with the cost of the room. We and our friends found the breakfast very nice and loved the setting outside for dining. It was buffet style with many nice choices as well as a omelette station. Very good. They also have a cash bar in the main building later in the day.
The grounds are very beautiful. First of all the back drop of the distant mountains is gorgeous, you can't screw that up. The hotel grounds were very nice and well maintained. There was a fountain that ran out into a man made stream that runs between the buildings and was lined with river rock. It was very relaxing which fit the theme of the entire place.
We loved our room. It wasn't without a couple concerns but overall it was ideal. It is a nice size with a fireplace, a table and 2 chairs and your own patio with french doors. The patio isn't completely private but it is largely shielded by hedges. The room has a cozy inn feel to it. All the windows are covered by wood horizontal blinds and are attractive. The bath is adequate. The shower is in the jacuzzi and access is not easy. The sides are high and there is no built in step so people with agility challenges might find this less than desirable.
I didn't think the closet and drawer space was adequate. We were traveling to a couple places over 10 days and had a lot of things admittedly. But the only closet was a wardrobe located in the bathroom. It had some open shelves and room for hanging clothes. It was tight but we made it work. Hardly a reason to pass on this marvelous hotel.
We didn't have a lot of interaction with the staff but what we did was very friendly. Our room was very clean and they also provided turn down service in the evening. It was nice to return to a room with a couple soft lights on, all the blinds closed and the bed turned down. This was very welcoming and appreciated.
We intend to return to Napa with our friends and agree we will likely return to The Vintage Inn. We always try new places but as my wife said, "Why open ourselves up to possible disappointment, this place was perfect."
