Well, needless to say our check-in experience at the McClelland-Priest was a first. No one was there to greet us. No one was around to show us the property. There was absolutely no one on the premises. What we found was an envelope outside the front door with communication from the owner, Celeste. Not real friendly if you ask me, and not exactly what we were expecting when we booked our room.

The wine service was located at the Innkeepers wine shop, Uncorked, a short walk away near the Oxbow Public Market. It would have been nice if they had a little something for us weary travelers at the hotel. (Forget about wine and cheese at the B&B. You're not getting anything.) Maybe some bottled water. How about a cookie for dessert? Nope, the only thing set out in the evening was a bowl of bite size Hershey's chocolates.

The main structure is beautiful. The converted carriage house that we rented looked like it was put together in the 70's updated in the 80's with a mauve faux finish paint job and a few new tapestries (made in China) added in the last decade. The headboard was beautiful, but the bed was very uncomfortable. The television didn't work and guess what - there was no one to call to find out how to fix it. (My husband is a huge sports fan and wanted to find out what was going on with basketball's March Madness results.)

The breakfast was okay, but nothing to brag about: a small helping of fruit/yogurt/cereal and a hash brown casserole with salsa. At breakfast some of the guests were complaining about the heat or lack of heat in their rooms in the main building. Others had to look for their own toiletries. (At least our room had toiletries.)

Would I go back? No. Unfortunately we have had better customer service at chain hotels.

My husband and I have stayed there twice. Our first visit was in 2009 in April. We had never been to Napa before. It was a great location. We could walk to downtown Napa. Celeste had our map and keys ready for us when we arrived. Each morning after a delicious breakfast, she would suggest wineries for us to stop by. This was really helpful because there are so many wineries and we had no idea where to start.

When we went back in July of 2011, we know we would stay there again. By this time, she and her husband had their tasting room opened. It was a great experience. We love The McClelland-Priest because of the hospitality, location and price. Overall, it is a wonderful experience and we will stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in The Puccini Suite the first time. We stayed in The Firenze Suite in July. The Firenze...

Celeste and Bruce are extremely knowledgable and connected in the valley. As others have mentioned, we arrived before official check-in time but an envelope was on the porch with tons of information including a map of Napa Valley with wineries circled indicating that Celeste had worked out either comp tastings or 2 for 1 tastings.
Breakfast was delicious and a great way to start a day of tasting. I had never eaten yogurt before but ate it every day here!
we stayed for 3 nights. 1 night in the Puccini Suite and 2 nights in the Carducci Suite. The Carducci suite was great! nice, comfy king size bed, high
ceilings.
The inn has a Victorian look and feel, similar to the decor you would expect to see at a Newport, RI mansion. We highly recommend McClelland-Priest!

Celeste had our keys waiting for us with a portfolio of maps, tour books, and coupons to various wineries even before our check-in time! The house is very elegant and comfortable. We stayed in the Firenze which had its own outside patio with chairs and table. Everything was clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were freshly prepared by Celeste and her husband Bruce. After eating each morning, they would help all of the guests build an itinerary taylored to their own likes. They were a wealth of knowledge and all of the wineries they recommended were not only good, but all offered a deal to guests of the B&B! Also, after a day of tasting, we were able to leave the car at the inn and walk into town to any of the restaurants and tasting rooms in Napa. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to staying again. This was such a gem!

We booked our stay, Dec. 7 - Dec. 12, 2011, based on other reviews and Celeste far exceeded our expectations. The breakfast was wonderful, appeared as if it was prepared by a 5 Star Chef, and tasted just as fabulous. Location of this B&B is superb, you can walk all over downtown Napa, lots of resturants, shopping, and Wine tasting spots. Celeste & Bruce have a WInery & tasting room, "Uncorked At Oxbrow". We were lucky to be their during one of their pick-up parties, when members of their Wine Club are invited to a party at their Tasting Room for music, food, and wine, and they can pick their wine up instead of having it shipped, Celeste invites all the B&B guests to these great parties. Celeste helped us to plan our days, telling us where to go, where to eat, and offered many money saving offers to wine tastings throughout the Napa Valley, saved us Hundreds of Dollars during our 5 day stay. We also enjoyed cuddling on her couch, watching a WVU Basketball Game with Blitz, her Boston Terrier & Bella, her poddle. Looking forward to booking a return trip to this wonderful destination.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Puccini Suite, but had the opportunity to see all of the rooms during our stay and...
