Amazing Location and Service

4.6 on October 30, 2014

This was our first stay in the Napa/St. Helena region. The inn was ideally located for the vineyards we had planned to visit. The room was quaint with a private patio which we used each evening. The bed was comfy and the room super clean for which I will award bonus points! This inn exceeded our expectations account of the service and all the perks they offered free of charge. We were able to cancel our driver as the Inn offered a shuttle service to take you to the restaurants in St. Helena. The 4 to 6 wine tasting with appetizers was also a nice touch. Breakfasts were amazing with the chef on hand to answer any questions. What impressed us the most was the staff - from Janelle who shuttled us to the restaurants and who gave great recommendations on the menus to Tim and Taylor at the front desk who helped us solve a complicated problem that had nothing to do with the Inn.


Wine Country Inn review

3.2 on October 22, 2014

The cost per night is high...We stayed in Unit #15...the shower had very little water pressure...there was no desk where I could set up my computer and monitor my e-mails and work. The room is small, and I would recommend removing a chair and placing a desk and chair in its place.


Wonderful stay at a charming place

4.6 on October 20, 2014

Our room was lovely and cozy, with a fireplace and a balcony overlooking the vineyard. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful in arranging wine tours, massage, dinner transportation, etc. We will be back!


The best place to stay in Napa Valley!

5 on October 14, 2014

My wife and I took our second trip to Napa Valley and once again stayed at the Wine Country Inn. The first thing you always notice is how friendly the staff is and you immediately feel right at home. Besides the grounds and rooms being absolutely gorgeous there are many benefits to take advantage of during your stay such as an amazing breakfast with a ton of options, daily wine tasting and delicious snacks in the early evening, partnerships with Wineries for complimentary tastings, and a nightly shuttle service to the restaurants in St. Helena. One way to show how the staff goes above and beyond is to share a brief story. My wife and I had bought a couple bottles of wine to take home and rather than pay for shipping we knew if we packed them well enough we would have no trouble. This left me in need of bubble wrap. When I asked at the front desk where the best place to buy some is they told me not to worry about it and found me a large roll of bubble wrap I could use. Overall my wife and I had a magical trip and I know my parents, who were first timers to the Wine Country Inn, loved their time too. If you are coming to Napa Valley, go to St. Helena and stay in the Wine Country Inn. I can't wait to go back.


Better than expected

4.0 on October 01, 2014

This Inn has a wonderful B&B feel, but yet you still get the privacy and amenities of a big hotel. The Inn has about 30 rooms, and I think they are all quite different. There are several rooms in the main building, but the rest of the rooms are essentially individual cabins. We had room 23, which had a nice little patio area and a private hot tub. It was fantastic, but I think the room just down the hill from us could be even better. I should have looked to see what room number that was for you all reading this review. The Inn does a nice breakfast each morning in the main building, and they do a free wine/cheese tasting each evening. The inn also has a lovely pool and cabana area for outside massages. There was some minor construction near the pool during our stay, so they did massages on the other side of the hotel in a cabana on what must also be hotel property. It was amazing and so relaxing to do it in that spot. I'd have a hard time imagining it is as peaceful and private in the usual spot near the pool. Long story short, this hotel was perfect for us. Also, St. Helena is a great central location for visiting many of the wineries in the Napa Valley. Room Tip: Splurge for one of the rooms with an outdoor patio overlooking the vineyard and a hot tub.


Great Weekend away from the city

4.8 on September 30, 2014

Great weekend away with a girl friend visiting from the east coast! Things we loved: breakfast, complimentary wine tasting and appetizers, complimentary dinner shuttle service, the cozy, well appointed room, and the attentive service of the front desk. Everyone was so nice!


Helpful Inn

We appreciated the extra service provided by the friendly staff, which included making dinner reservations for us, providing transport to restaurants and the great wine Inn-cursion wine tasking.


Our favorite for Napa Valley

4.6 on September 24, 2014

WCI is a warm, comfortable home-base for exploring the Napa Valley. Staff is fantastic -- friendly, helpful, cheerful. Breakfast is always a treat: lots of choices, all delicious. The evening dinner shuttle is a huge advantage, serving most of St Helena's fine-dining restaurants, allowing one to forget about driving and enjoy the wines of Napa. Rooms are smallish but comfy. We've been staying here whenever we visit the valley, ever since 1979, and we've never been disappointed.


Wine Country Inn Review

2.0 on September 23, 2014

My wife and I visited Napa Valley for several days of wine tasting and relaxing the third week of September. We have stayed numerous times in throughout the valley and absolutely love the area. While it has been several years since our last visit and realizing it is peak season there, I was totally unsatisfied about the overall cost of the accommodations given the level of comfort and state of our room, the food served and Concierge. The building was noisy, we could hear fellow guest walking over our heads and in the hallway. Furthermore, the bed was creaky, not very comfortable and the pillows were flat. It took a while to get hot water in the bathroom and the room generally was not at the level expected given the money spent. The jacuzzi attached to our room only worked partially and we could never get the water very hot. The breakfast provided in the morning was okay but pales in comparison to other breakfasts we've had at other inns. The signature egg dish was pretty old looking by the time we ate breakfast at 9 am on both days. There was not much selection of fruit and coffee was often unavailable. Finally in the breakfast area, I had two run-ins with an attendant who didn't appreciate me helping myself to silverware and other things for the table. Final issue was a dubious restaurant reservation. I had asked the Concierge to assist me in getting reservations for dinner at several spots in Napa Valley. While the first reservation she made was good at Redd on Tuesday night, the second reservation she made on Wednesday night was worthless as the restaurant was closed. Not sure how she got a reservation for a closed restaurant. Once again, I realize this is peak season and most room rates are high. But given the overall experience and accommodations, I will not stay here again and look elsewhere.
