“Fantastic Experience!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

My husband and I stayed here for two nights this summer (June 8-10). Honestly, I've stayed in several B&B's before, and this was by far the best! The rooms are beautiful, and still have the B&B feel. The staff was very friendly and helpful! The Location is absolutely perfect, and the breakfast is to die for! They also had freshly made Truffles for us in our room when we arrived, along with a bottle of wine! The whole experience really WOW'd us! We had a great time, and we've recommended this place to several friends/family members over the last few months! EXCEPTIONAL! We can't wait to head back sometime in the Spring!

Room Tip: We had a top floor corner room - It was spacious and very private! We felt like we had the whole hou...

We stayed 3 nights in a "Superior Suite" in late September. The Inn is in a lovely location in Napa and is an attractive property. Housekeeping was spotless and the breakfasts very good.

Our only complaint is that the Suite was only one large room with the bathroom alongside one end of the room. Unfortunately there was no door separating the bathroom from the rest of the room which my wife hated. Usually, a suite consists of a bedroom and a sitting room as well as a separate bathroom rather than just one large room. There were 2 large chairs in the room but he angled ceilings made it virtually impossible to place reading lamps nearby.

Overall, the visit was a good one except I object to the false use of the term "Superior Suite"

Hi Enohj,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are so happy that you enjoyed most details of your stay, however we are saddened to hear that the room was not to your expectations. It is indeed our largest room in the house, and also located on the quieter 2nd floor, so we feel that it does qualify as a Superior Suite for our inn but understand it has an unconventional setup. (We should note to potential guests that the bathroom is not actually visible from the bedroom even though there is not a door into the toilet area.)

Although it is structurally impossible for us to add a door to this room we do have many others that I feel you would be very happy in. We hope that you will join us again so that we may make your stay with us even better than "nice".

All the best,
Kali & 1801 Inn Staff

The attention to detail is top notch throughout the property, luxurious amenities, and the breakfast ingredients are high-end restaurant quality. Choose the carriage house if it is available - worth the splurge. Easy walk to downtown Napa dining with good choices...you will not want to drive after a day of activities and wineries. This location checks all the boxes...unless you need a gym.

Hi KeepItAlwaysHonest,

We are so glad you could take the time to write a review! We love when guests take advantage of our downtown location (especially after a day of enjoying the Napa wines). We are really proud of how it continues to grow and provide great experiences for our guests.

Next time you will have to get a pass for the full service gym down the street... although we typically discourage too much exercise! :)

Take care,
Kali & 1801 Inn

Friendly owner with a personal touch. Beautiful and very clean property. Lovely room.
Great breakfast. Convenient location to highway, downtown (walkable), and restaurants.
Owner offered to ship any wine (or anything else) that we wanted. Great wine and cheese every afternoon. I would definitely return. 10 out of 10!

Room Tip: We stayed in Suite 5. Lovely and comfortable with a shower and separate jacuzzi bath.

Our experience at 1801 First was fantastic from beginning to end. We were contacted before our arrival asking if we needed to have any dinner reservations made for us and we were invited to a wine tasting one evening at the inn. We were greeted warmly upon arrival, shown to our cozy room (no that is not mean small) under the eaves. There is a wine gathering every evening where we were able to meet some lovely other guests. Breakfast each morning was superb. We enjoyed ending our evening with a glass of por from the bottle in the living room. Our trip to Napa was wonderful and our stay at 1801 First was a huge part of our delightful trip. Thanks to all.

Hi DPL3330,

Thank you for your review! We love when guests have the opportunity to take advantage of all of the little extras like our concierge assistance, the port "night cap", and especially our wine maker wine hours.

It's our pleasure to make sure everyone enjoys every moment of their time in the valley.

Until next time,

Our stay was wonderful! From the chef's truffles in our room upon arrival, to the 5:30 happy hour every evening in the courtyard, to the the delicious daily prepared breakfasts. The staff was very helpful with making any reservations that we may have wanted, as well as taking care of any special requests we had. Felice got us into Schramsberg winery for the tour, even though they were booked up! We especially enjoyed the happy hour every evening with the owner, Blair and all of the guests who shared their experiences of their day in wine country! 1801 First is a lovely Inn and we look forward to returning!

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the cottages. Very private. Had its own fenced in courtyard.

My husband and I stayed here for our first trip to Napa... already planning to return! Truly one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed in. The staff is wonderful: so helpful in planning our trip and very hospitable during our stay, especially Felice (really everyone is great, but we had the most contact with her!). The grounds of the inn are beautifully kept and we really loved the patio area and "wine hour" every evening. We stayed in one of the 2 private cottages and would definitely recommend it! Breakfast was delicious... the chef is awesome! I know I'm gushing, but, really.... this inn is the best! GO!!!

We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Napa and our little inn! We have especially been working to make our gardens, patio, and wine hour the best so we are so glad you enjoyed it.

Looking forward to next time!
