This used to be the John Muir Inn, similar to a Best Western; it had just undergone a lot of renovation, and was still getting a facelift when I got there. The front entrance was under construction, but that really did not make any big dent in my stay. They serve a really great breakfast and a nice wine social. For the money it is located right off the freeway, and is very convenient to anyone’s wine tasting tour.
The bus from San Francisco Airport or Oakland Airport is literally 5 minutes away, so if your there and are expecting anyone sharing your experience you can pick them in without even getting on the freeway.The next two restaurants that I went to were a minute away also. I planned my trip to be close to the bus as well as the next two restaurants on purpose and it was so convenient and perfect. If you are planning to do some wine touring, this hotel is right off of highway 29 which in Napa is a freeway but turns into a one lane highway when it winds its way to Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga.
The Inn has some nice amenities, a pool and a jacuzzi. My room also has a jacuzzi tub, unfortunately neither jacuzzi worked when I was there, maybe better luck next time. But there are modern, newly renovated guest rooms featuring contemporary furnishings, picturesque artwork, comfortable bedding, and complimentary high speed internet.
So all in all it’s a nice deal and very convenient, probably better to spend less on your accommodations and spend more on your wine purchases. They offer promotional rates and are pet friendly. Just remember its basic, it does not have all the bells and whistles that a traditional bed and breakfast has, but Napa Winery Inn does have a fantastic breakfast, with fresh scrambled eggs and bacon and all the other buffet fixings. If you’re ok with a Best Western kind of feel, then this property will do you just fine!
