To many false statements on their website. Advertised a continental breakfast daily. When asked the response was haven't done that in over five years. Advertised wine and cheese daily. Never happened. Advertised coffee and ice cream shop. Closed. Asked for a price reduction. Response was "sorry"

I give it one star, because there is no option for zero or minus one. Let's start with things broken or filthy: air conditioning, toilet paper holder falling off wall, curtains dirty and falling down, refrigerator, broken coffee pot, filthy carpet, banged up and dirty walls and cabinets, black mold and cob webs in bathroom. Get the picture? These are...

While the location is in the heart of Yountville there is no way I would recommend this place, especially a stay in the station house. The room was dark and had a musty smell which never really went away, despite having the AC running for 2 days straight. There was a coat rack instead of an actual closet to hang...

We stayed here a few weeks ago. The was very impressed with the service. Check in was easy and efficient and, after we accidentally left a phone charger in the room, they mailed it back to us - which went above and beyond what we would have expected. Also, the location was perfect. The train theme is very cute all...

This is a great value for Yountville. Perfect location! The bed is very comfortable. The only small issue is the height of the shower head. If you are tall, prepare to duck! We love it here and highly recommend it.

I loved everything about this hotel! Well maybe except for pretty cramped shower area. But aside from this, everything was perfect. For the adventureous ones who are seeking for something different from what a typical hotel offers, this is where you should book.

My husband and I just spent two nights in one of the cabooses. It was a Boxcar Children childhood dream come true! I love the vintage charm of the structure.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Wine Country in the center of the sophisticated town of Yountville, the Napa Valley Railway Inn provides the perfect Napa Valley getaway. Let the Railway Inn's converted 100-year old train cars provide you with memorable accommodations walking distance to Thomas Keller's 'The French Laundry,' 'Bouchon,' and 'Ad-Hoc,' as well as Michael Chiarello's 'Bottega,' and 'Napa Style.' Comfortable, contemporary and convenient, relax outside your room in the evening on our patio with a glass of wine or in the morning enjoy a specialty coffee and fresh pastry from the Model Bakery's soon to open 3rd Napa Valley location right at the hotel. Outside your doorstep stroll to any of the 11 wine tasting rooms, boutique shopping or world-class dining located just steps away. A mix of history with all the modern conveniences for today's traveler, make the hotel an ideal destination when visiting the Napa Valley. In room amenities include complimentary WiFi, flat screen TV's, inviting luxurious linens and refrigerators for that just purchased bottle of Chardonnay. Hotel guest rooms consist of eight steam-era railcars permanently parked in the center of downtown Yountville in the heart of the Napa Valley. Each of the guest cars offers few hints of their former function: you'd never guess that No. 4 used to carry cattle or that the skylight in No.9 was once a hatch for ice-block deliveries. Providing the best location for your wine country escape, the hotel offers the convenience of not having to get into your car to enjoy an evening out in the best restaurants in the Napa Valley as well as great views of the surrounding mountains and adjacent vineyards during the day. ... more   less
