Everything we needed for our visit to the Napa/Sonoma regtion. Clean. Nice continental breakfast with decent varierty. Nicely decorated. Close to downtown Napa, which has lots of shops and restaurants. I would recommend the Elm House inn and would stay there again.

We have stayed at this hotel the last 5 years when it was formerly Best Western Elm House and LOVED staying there. In February 2020 we reserved a room for one week in November 2020. Approximately 3-4 weeks before our arrival I tried contacting the Elm House about our late arrival in mid-November to ensure someone would be there to let us in around midnight; to no avail. The phone lines went directly to a fast busy signal, emails went unanswered. Two weeks out we did receive an email that said they hoped to be open by early November but the situation was fluid. Continued attempts to reach them went unanswered. One week out we were left with no alternative but to make reservations somewhere else, but were then unable to cancel our reservation due to inability to reach anyone. We arrived in Napa last week and stayed in an alternative hotel nearby. We went on daily morning walks and walked by the Elm House. It was very clear work was going on inside such as renovations and painting. It was VERY obvious this building would never have been ready for us to stay at for our scheduled trip. All I keep thinking is what if me and my daughter landed at San Francisco as planned and drove directly to Elm House and arrived at midnight to an empty hotel with nowhere to stay?! Thank goodness we followed our heart and made alternative plans. I am so disappointed at the lack of open communication with clients who had existing reservations. There is just no excuse for this and shows total lack of respect for the people who have been devoted clients for many years.

We had the absolute best experience at the Elm House. We had booked two nights and due to an odd flight time and some other things going on we were hoping for a very early check-in so our 2 year old could still get his noon nap. Kim was an absolute angel- getting us into a room and being so kind about the entire situation. She was accommodating, helpful, and extremely genuine. The interaction truly felt like Kim understood what we needed and was willing to help us get a solution. She truly made our stay in Napa 10x better. Thank you Kim! The room was great. Spacious, comfy bed, and clean. Would definitely recommend if you are coming to Napa! Best, Erin Gagnon Sent from my iPhone

Lovely little hotel in a nice area with helpful, polite staff. Rooms really spacious, clean and tidy with plenty of toiletries. Perfect location with plenty of parking. Breakfast seating is very limited on a rainy day, not allowing enough tables indoors. Would recommend this hotel.

I would stay there again for the price. Very good value for what you get in Napa. Great service. Some maintenance issues: (bathroom light bulb, dirty carpet, & windows hard to open or don't work. ) Easy to get to off the highway. 10 walk to downtown Napa and 15 min to riverfront.

My wife and I stayed one night in a very simple room. The rates for hotels in Napa were high and we paid over five hundred dollars for the night. We were woken up by a maid knocking on our door and later, as we were about to check out at 10:30, the front desk called to rudely tell us that check out was at 11. At the front desk I mentioned that I didn't appreciate the wake up knocking and time to go call. I was informed by the young lady that the management instructed her to call the rooms as guest might stay until noon. I find it hard to believe the hotel management would train the person at the front desk to annoy their guest as the young lady said but I would believe the maids and the front desk want to get the guest out and the work over with. I guess they're running the show

We couldn't have picked a more beautiful, and centrally located location for us to have our base for our trip to Napa. The grounds are beautifully kept, the staff was very attentive, and the parking was plentiful. Centrally located, making it easy for our day trips into the wine country, as well as to our restaurants for evening meals.

Like the poster below, I had reservations and did not receive any notification from the hotel that they had closed. We were supposed to stay at the end of July for 10 days through the beginning of August. We ended up having to cancel our entire trip, and received NO notification from the hotel that they were closed. We could have easily gotten off the plane and found we had no place to stay! I have been trying to call to reschedule for next year, but subsequent calls have still not been responded to, and it is now December. They could at least leave a message to let customers know their situation. This is so frustrating - customers need to know so they can make alternate plans!
