We stayed at the Napa River Inn for a part of our honeymoon and it was incredibly great. Beautiful, friendly, fun, super nice... perfect for exploring downtown Napa. We loved the 5:00pm wine tastings, the breakfast delivered to you in bed, the free bike rentals, the close proximity to fun restaurants... I could go on. Definitely the best place to...

After a visit to Napa a few months ago, we were amazed at the improvements they have made to the city. We decided on this trip to stay in the city, instead of Yountville where we usually stay. The Napa River Inn is the perfect location for exploring Napa, easy walking distance to all restaurants and shopping. We upgraded to...

I'm glad you tried Downtown Napa on your recent trip to the Napa Valley! The changes in Downtown have been nothing short of amazing - and there are new businesses popping up all the time. Hope to see you back again soon. Sara Brooks Napa River Inn

While the hotel tries hard, it is outclassed by the many upscale competitors in the Napa Valley. My wife and I recently stayed at the Napa River Inn during a 5 day business trip. Our room faced the river in the Embarcadero building. The room itself was dark, despite three sets of windows overlooking the walkway next to the river....

PJ & I took a nice vacation and stayed here for 2 nights. We stayed in a nice suite and had breakfast from Sweetie Pies sent to our room each morning. The best thing, I think, was the bathtub. It was a stand alone tub with a high back. I love baths and this was probably the MOST comfortable tub...

This hotel was wonderful! There isn't much to add that hasn't already been said, but the highlights for us were the friendly, helpful staff, the delicious baked goods delivered to our room for breakfast, and the comfy beds. Oh, and the garden space along the river was just gorgeous. The room was not huge, but was big enough for two...

I really loved my two day fun stay in Napa. I really enjoyed the inn. Since I was with my best buddy, another girl, we had a two bed room. The problem was they only had rooms with 2 beds on the bottom floor. Normally I would have been very uncomfortable because I always request a higher floor, but, this...

My husband and I recently took a 2 day trip to Napa and loved the Napa River Inn. Everything about it was great -- the staff couldn't have been more gracious, the location is terrific (within walking distance to lots of restaurants and shops) and the room, although small, was extremely comfortable.

We recently stayed for a couple days on a quick trip to Napa. My friend and I got a courtyard room with two double beds. The room was spotless, and looked more like a B&B than a hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was perfect and quiet with sparkling lights outside the window. The dinner credit for one of three great restaurants along the river and the complimentary breakfast at Sweeties made the stay affordable for the wine country. We love the improvements in this area of Napa and hope to stay here again!
