“pretty average, definitely overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2010

Napa area hotels are generally overpriced, but for $550 per night, I didn't expect to have to take my luggage by myself to and from my room -- especially in the pouring rain. The room was fine. We were quite disappointed and will not return.

This is a great location right in the middle of Napa Valley Wine Courntry. It was a very hot weekend (Upper 90's) and our room was cool. At night we opened the patio doors which made for pleasant sleeping. We stayed in the room with the single patio door by the fireplace that is pictured in the slide show of the hotel. The chairs were very dirty with torn arms, and ripped backs. This was a pleasant experience but not a value at the $450 per night that you would expect out of a 5 star hotel. We'll try other hotels in the area on furture trips to the wine courntry..

The location is perfect-next to Merryvale winery, and across from a great burger stand, close to shopping in St. Helena. Workout facility was clean and updated. Rooms were clean, large, and had patios and woodburning fireplaces. Breakfast was included. Probably the worst thing was that our room overlooked the parking lot, but if you looked beyond the parking lot, you could see wineries.....

birthday getaway for bay area couple - my husband does business with restaurants in the area, so we stay in the Napa and Sonoma area four or five times a year. we hadn't stayed in st. helena for a while and had seen the ads for the inn at southbridge a few times - decided to try it. The good news - great location walkable to restaurants and to downtown st. helena. nice spa on property with lap pool and nice facilities that are gratis to hotel guests. nice beds and linens. The bad news - looks like they ran out of money in constructing the place - ok so i'm fussy but....large cracks in cement sinks and tile floors, floorboards left unfinished; one side of hall finished, the other side not (??), stickers left on light fixtures, fluorescent tubes plainly visible in bathroom where a piece of glass was quite obviously missing, furniture worn and dirty, cheaply finished doors. Wireless internet as advertised not working, cheap bath fixtures and faucets, rough towels in bathroom (overly laundered; time to buy new ones!), breakfast was fresh fruit which was very nice along with yogurt, granola, and cereal and pastries - which was FINE for me, but many would feel shorted if "breakfast" is advertised when eggs, etc are not included. I dunno - lobby was fine, the front desk was quite nice and helpful, but the physical plant was lacking. I wanted to like it, but it's just not there yet. Perhaps when the market gets back together someone can buy some new towels and have the furniture cleaned; buy some prints or art for the walls? our view was a parking lot, as were half of the hotels' view...

We visit wine country twice a year, and generally stay in Sonoma. We wanted to stay in St. Helena this time, and decided on the Inn becauase of a huge discount rate we got. The Inn is nice, but nothing spectacular. It is located right along the road, and shares a parking lot with many other businesses (more of a "motel" feel than a wine country getaway). Definitely doesn't have the "old world" European feel like some other places. Room was comfortable, but again, nothing unique. Breakfast consisted of a self-serve buffet of fruit, pastries and cereal. Overall, okay experience. Definitely would NOT pay the rack rate to stay here.

My husband and I just returned from a fabulous long weekend in wine county. After a great deal or research, I selected the Inn at Southbridge as our 'base camp.' What a wonderful selection. Perfect location for touring Napa (29) and Silverado Trail. Our room (#18) was spacious, clean and quiet. The only downside was the Internet. I was hoping for in-room wireless so we could quickly check-in with work, family and finalize any arrangements. That didn't pan out. But the network worked in the lobby.

We loved having access to health club. Made for ideal days...morning or afternoon workouts, simple breakfast, wine tasting and touring, afternoon R&R and dinner. The Inn helped us ship our finds back home as well. Can't say enough positive things!! We plan to stay again during our next trip to wine country.

Stayed at the Inn at Southbridge Mid January. CA was experiencing a dry/sunny-spell and the weather was beautiful. The location is awesome. The Inn is in the heart of St. Helena, and is convenient to at least 20 wineries (short drive). Merryvale is right next door, Taylors refresher is across the street and Travigne is on the other side of merryvale. The room was large and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is fresh and delicious, fresh pasties and baked goods, strawberries, pineapple, coffee, juice, cereal, yogurt. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a late flight and wanted to visit more wineries after we checked out, but did not want to leave the wine we had purchased in the car all day. The front desk stored our wine, for the day. We were on our honeymoon and the concierge made reservations at three restaurants for us. She did a great job because, each restaurant celebrated our honeymoon with us, we received champagne and dessert free. It was a special touch. Highly recommend this Inn.
