A review of the Napa River Inn

The charming Napa River Inn provides travellers with an excellent accommodation choice when visiting the wine country — Napa, California. There are a great number of advantages and some disadvantages to staying at this relaxing hotel.


The Basics
Established in the late 1800s, the Napa River Inn is built in the historic Napa River Mill.
A range of guestrooms are available, catering for every budget.
There are few leisure options on-site, however, guests will need to leave the hotel for entertainment and evening meals.

Positive points

The Napa River Inn enjoys a spectacular location, sitting on the bed of the river in downtown Napa.
As such, a wide selection of shops, eateries, bars and attractions are within walking distance of this luxurious hotel in Napa.
One particular highlight is the Napa Valley wine train, which is within five minutes walk of the hotel. History
Staying at the Napa River Inn leaves guests in a building with a rich and varied history.
The building was originally constructed as a mill in 1884, and now enjoys registered Historic Landmark status. Selection of Guestrooms
Guests can choose the most basic "standard" room, which features cooked breakfast at your door each morning and a king, queen or twin beds.
Some standard rooms also include authentic fireplaces and garden views.
The Captain Hatt suite enjoys separate living and sleeping areas, a fireplace, wet bar, spacious en-suite and large windows which let the fresh California sunshine flow. Special Deals and Packages
A number of special deals and packages are available.
Details of seasonal or holiday-specific deals and packages can be found at, while the hotel also offers spa, wining and dining packages. Hosting Events
The Napa River Inn is also ideally suited to hosting large-scale events, such as weddings, with beautiful large indoor and outdoor spaces capable of hosting up to 350 and 112 people respectively. Green Initiatives
The hotel has a strong commitment to organic and recycled products, and the owners make a point of recycling any and all goods that are applicable.
In-room fireplaces, for example, burn wood and not gas.

Negative points

No Eateries On-site
While the hotel hosts some excellent facilities, it does not host its own restaurant.
Complimentary cooked breakfast aside, guests will have to leave the hotel premises for further food and drink except for a complimentary wine reception each evening. Few Additional Facilities
Furthermore, the hotel does not host a swimming pool, fitness center or a children's play room. Pet Friendly
While pet owners may see this as advantageous, many travellers do not want to share their relaxing, luxury holiday with other people's pets, regardless of how well behaved they are.
