“Perfect Getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

We have friends that stay in the RTI every time they come to Napa and they highly recommended it. I can see why. We enjoyed everything about it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is located very close to the Oxbow Market which has incredible food and is in walking distance of downtown Napa. We never drove to dinner. They have 4 bikes that are free rentals and they will give you directions to paths to ride on. (We liked the one off Lincoln Rd...very private and it follows the Napa River).
The hotel has a comfortable atmosphere inside but my favorite part is the patio with the fire pit. We relaxed there every morning while drinking coffee and eating breakfast and every night as well. The RTI has a food station set up next to the bar where you can purchase a breakfast burrito (excellent), pastries, fruit, yogurt or cereal for less than $10. Coffee and tea are complimentary. This makes it very convenient if you dont want to hassle with going to a restaurant. Just grab your grub and head outdoors to peaceful patio...perfect.
Our room was on the first floor close to the patio and lobby. Perfect location...no need to pay extra for a room on the second or third floor unless you like a tub. The bed was the most comfortable one we have ever slept in...and we travel a lot. The room was spacious,nicely decorated and immaculately clean. Again...perfect! We will absolutely stay here next time we visit Napa.

Thank you kindly for your excellent review. We are very pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay in Napa and your accommodations with us at the River Terrace Inn. Our beds are extremely comfortable, so we are very pleased that they satisfied the needs of some avid travelers. We do offer many options for food including a grab-n-go breakfast station, excellent room service, and phenomenal eats at our neighboring restaurant, Cuvée. Next time you're staying with us at the River Terrace Inn, you must dine at Cuvée for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We just released a new menu with many unique dishes. It would be a wonderful way to end your magical Napa experience. Again, thank you very much for sharing your experience. We look forward to your next vacation to Napa Valley!

Wow! What a treasure in Napa, CA! The River Terrace Inn is a comfortable, clean, quaint hotel in the heart of Napa. We stumbled upon it and are so glad we did. In fact, we hope we can extend our stay here! The beds are cozy, the rooms are generous and the staff are attentive. Relax on the balcony or on one of the outdoor patios overlooking the river while enjoying a glass of wine- you will not be disappointed. This place is delightful!

We had a pleasant stay here, rooms are nice, we had a corner room facing the front which gave us the sun in the afternoon, a small balcony means you can enjoy sit out and relax. The pool is on the same side as the river, which gets the sun in the morning but not after 3:30 in August. The pool is nice, plenty big enough to swim lengths. Breakfast is in the restaurant at the front of the car park, this was served and not a buffet which is a nice touch. The recommendation from the receptionist for a restaurant for dinner was perfect (we went to the NormanRose, a short walk into Napa).

Thank you kindly for sharing your thoughts and feedback on your Napa experience with the River Terrace Inn. We are so delighted that you enjoyed our accommodations as well as the delicious brunch served at Cuvée. Another wonderful way to see Napa Valley is by taking the wine train that's conveniently located right across the street from our hotel. For a new experience in Napa, you have got to try it! We would love to have you back to the hotel as a guest in the future, and we are very pleased that you enjoyed Napa Valley with us. Please come again soon!

This was our first trip to Napa Valley and we couldn't have picked a better hotel! We stayed three nights and our entire stay was very pleasant. The lobby is really nice with a fireplace and comfy chairs. There's also a fireplace out back on the terrace which was very welcome on chilly nights -- every night was very chilly during our stay. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The desk clerk provided us with coupons for tastings at several wineries. The only down side is that I had to ask about those. It would have been nice to get them automatically on our arrival. Given it was my husband's birthday, he also me book a reservation at the Cuvée restaurant, which is on the site of the hotel (see other review). He also provided ideas for activities other than wine tasting. Overall, very nice.
Our room was spacious and clean with a very comfortable king-size bed and a sitting area. Bathroom wasn't huge, but very serviceable. The shower was spacious and there were no issues with water pressure. Our room faced the front of the hotel which was nice. It was quiet. The balcony is extremely small though -- you can barely sit there. However, it was nice for morning coffee watching the mountains afar.
The hotel doesn't have a restaurant on site. However, it is affiliated with Cuvée which is just at the end of the parking lot -- not even a minute walk. And they do offer breakfast which is provided by Cuvée. You have to pay extra and there aren't many choices. Coffee is complimentary in the lobby, which is nice.
The hotel is conveniently located near Oxbow Public Market and provides very easy access to the roads leading to all the wineries. We spent one day in Napa and one in Sonoma and both times, getting to and from the hotel was a breeze.
There is a pool and an exercise room at the hotel. Although we didn't use these, I saw some people who did and they seemed to enjoy the facilities.
The hotel also provides complimentary bikes if you so choose. There is a nice path right behind the hotel for cycling or walking. There is also complimentary Wi-Fi which is really important for us.
One comment I would have is to ask the hotel to update their website photos. Right now, the site doesn't do it justice and you just can't appreciate how lovely it is. I admit that we were a bit weary when we looked at the photos before booking. However, after reading positive reviews, we booked. Better photos of the hotel would probably help.
Overall, our stay was wonderful and I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Napa. And be sure to go to Cuvée for dinner ... you will not regret it!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front might be quieter given there is a nice terrace outback and people can stay out la...

The hotel was very nice, in a really good location, near the oxbow market, near the wine train. The pool was a good size and was nice and deep and had sun for most of the day. Rooms were a little small but were okay and the balcony was nice to have. Bathrooms were very nice. Only fault was the lack of choice for breakfast which was free :) and a weird negative was there were no cups by the water fountain all the time (24hrs) which would have been useful as got thirsty during night! Other than that stay was fantastic!!

Thank you kindly for your excellent review! We are very happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. Our location is really good with many attractions near our hotel such as the Oxbow Market and the wine train. regarding our accommodations, we do have different rooms, which vary in amenities as well as sizes. It may be more fitting for you to book a river view room with a private Jacuzzi and spacious patio to enjoy. This may alleviate any issues you experienced with the size of the room. We would love to have you back at our hotel in the future, even though it may be tough to visit all the way from Southampton in the UK! Please come back again soon--We look forward to your next stay in Wine Country!

Thank you,

My husband & I traveled to Napa to share a few days alone. We were treated with excellent service as well as an upgrade to our room. We were delighted with the complimentary breakfast as well as the the most comfortable hotel mattress were ever slept on! We enjoyed the location close to restaurants, shopping and touring. It was further away from the heart of "Wine Country" but an opportunity to drive and see many vineyards abounds. A view from our bedroom window early in the mornings hosted a sky full of hot air balloons ascending in the valley!

Room Tip: Valley view rooms might include a display of hot air balloons filling the sky!

Dear Sandy,

Thank you for sharing your excellent experience at the River Terrace Inn. We are very pleased that you loved the room upgrade and comfortable mattress! There are many surprises that happen around the hotel, and seeing a sky filled with hot air balloons is one of them! Next time you decide to take another little vacation to Napa Valley, take a tour on the wine train. It's right across the street from our accommodations and it's another great way to explore Wine Country. Thank you again for your wonderful review. We look forward to your next stay with us at the River Terrace Inn!

We were only at the River Terrace Inn for one night but we thought it was a lovely property. Very welcoming, large and comfortable rooms. Lovely grounds. Wish we had more time there. You get what you pay for.
