My friend was kind enough to treat me to a night at this hotel - it was wonderful! The staff could not be more accommodating and kind. The beds are unbelievably comfortable with dreamy pillows. They deliver breakfast from the little bakery that's on the hotel grounds every morning and it was delicious. It's such a nice way to start...

Thank you for staying with us on your recent trip to Napa - I'm glad your trip was 'ghost free'! While we don't offer a pool at this time, we do have plans to add one with the expansion of our spa. Hopefully you'll be able to come see us again after it is finished. Sara Brooks Napa River Inn

I have stayed here on business several times and will continue to come back. It is very enjoyable, reasonably priced, convenient for getting to various places in the valley, and has a great staff. The noise levels are not a problem and there are a number of restaurants within 100 yards of the hotel.
