Reasonably priced and walking distance to the best food in the valley? Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and a coffee shop at the end of the boardwalk? Yes, please. It's a little unfair that this place has to be compared to the $400/night bed and breakfasts/resorts/etc. in Yountville. Basically, if you just need a super convenient, reasonably priced place to lay...

Stayed here on a few occasions. Calling for reservations is quite easy. We were arriving late as we've done in the past. The Inn made arrangements to pick up key at next door gym. No issues. There are a handful of railcars. Unique and fun to see. The rooms are rather spacious. Clean. Well priced. No frills. Great, great location...

The entire town of Yountville is quiet, and the Railway Inn is no different. It is attached to a cute little coffee place (next to room 3), so if you want it to be REALLLLLLY quiet I would suggest asking for another room. This seemed to be the most affordable hotel in Yountville (we paid $160 for the night). Yountville...

This place is great value - and walking distance to lots of places to eat and drink and make merry. The rooms are nicely furnished, if a little chintzy for our taste, but very comfortable, and we were grateful for the golf umbrellas in the rooms as it poured with rain when we arrived. For breakfast, it's almost opposite the...

We were here in November and the rooms were fairly cold. The heater heats up the middle part of the rail car but on the ends where the bed and the bathroom are stay pretty cold. This is definately no frills but has a great location and is pretty decent overall

This was our second stay at the Railway Inn. It's a no-frills inn right in the heart of Yountville. The rooms are large and the bathrooms are pretty spacious as well. If you're looking for a resort with amenities abound, this is not the place for you. But if you'd rather spend your money on wine and the amazing food...

It is difficult to find a moderately priced hotel in the Napa region but Napa Valley Railway Inn provides simple amenities in a quiet atmosphere at a reasonable price for the area. The location is perfect for exploring the town and heading out to the vineyards. Parking was easy. Room was clean and comfortable - but certainly not fancy. No...

I was planning a trip to Napa for the first time and really wanted to stay an Yountville. I was having a hard time finding something that wasn't ridiculously overpriced especially since we weren't going to be spending much time in the room at all. Just so happened to see a segment on The Today Show about this place and...

This place was very cool. They made railway cars into hotel rooms. Nice location in town. Very large rooms with plenty of space. Outside seating in front of rooms to hang out. Close to many wineries. Would recommend.

We stayed one night in Room 8 last weekend. It is a small facility in the center of Yountville so you can walk to great restaurants. There was no one at the desk to check in but it was easy to do, the key was waiting at the health club next door. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable and...

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 Java Hut Too located 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
