“An absolutely lovely hotel in Napa”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We loved our stay at the Elm House Inn from beginning to end.

We arrived after a long flight from the UK to San Francisco and walked into a wonderfully cozy lobby and reception area complete with Christmas tree, fireplace and, maybe, every Father Christmas decoration ever made on the mantle place! It was an amazing start to our California Christmas holiday. The reception area forms a big part of any stay at the Elm House Inn as all the rooms open onto it or to the lobby above it and breakfast takes place there every morning.

Check in was easy and the staff/owners were always pleasant, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was varied and well stocked (cereal, muffins, fruit, juices, coffee, porridge) with waffles available as well. The location is great with just a short (10-15 minutes) into the main area of Napa where we visited a number of local restaurants (you could drive but we prefer to walk and have some wine!) Well lit streets and good pavements. It was also easy to get onto the main roads and visit the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

This hotel definitely earns the Plus part of the Best Western Plus and we'd recommend it to anyone visiting Napa, especially over the Holiday season!

I highly recommend the Best Western Plus Elm House Inn hotel in Napa. It is comfortable, cozy, nice and the service excellent. Breakfast is amazing! And you get surprises with little details. We felt at home and want to go back for sure!

we went after Christmas. the lobby was cozy and charming, with a warm fireplace. the best part of the stay was the gracious & personable host, Tom, who greeted my husband and myself by name each time he saw us. we brought our son, and the last minute his cousin, and they felt welcome. this hotel did not nickel -and -dimed us when we checked out.

We booked at the last minute and got the last room in the hotel. My expectations were high being #1 rated hotel in Napa. The hotel did not disappoint with service you would expect from a 5 Star hotel. The rooms were clean with comfortable bed. The owner and his daughter along with another lady served the great continental breakfast which was much more than continental! The street it is located on was busy and a bit noisy but did not disturb our sleep. You get much more than you pay for at this family run Best Western. Thanks

I was a solo traveler without haveing any plan in Napa, but with their help, I enjoyed an excellent winery tour and had a wonerful Italian dinner in town.
They made me feel very at home:)

The room is clean and cozy and inn keepers are very warm and friendly.
They have a very pretty lounge where we can enjoy evening warm handmade cookies with hot/cold drinks and waffule for breakfast.

They are happy to help you arrange winery tours, restaurant reservation, or cab to the town center, if needed.

I would love to come back to stay with them again.

Room Tip: In winter, a room with a fireplace may be good for you.

Staying at The Best Western Elm House Inn in Sonoma was one of the best parts of a two week visit to California! Arriving late at night (with reservations), we were not impressed at first glance with what appears to be just a large older house. But when we were taken to our room,--wow!! Our room was behind the main building in a separate building overlooking the gardens. We had a private entrance up an outside staircase, and a small deck area with table and chairs.The room was very large, with an extra sink area, large closet area, desk in a window alcove, and generous seating of plush armchairs and even an upholstered ottoman! Comfy!. The coordinated bed linens and draperies were of highest quality. The bathroom was large, and the entire space was spotless!
There are a hidden garden and hot-tub in the courtyard, a beautiful common room in the main building, which had a roaring fire going at all times (Jan/Feb), and complementary tea/coffee/cocoa and freshly baked cookies offered by the friendly, helpful staff.
But there's more! This location includes breakfast with your stay. And what a breakfast!!- easily the best I've had anywhere!--freshly made baked goods, waffles made to order for you, all manner of cereals, fruits,yogurts, etc Attentive staff to clear dishes, and refill your cup. Tables with tablecloths, cloth napkins, and fine china. Fresh flowers at each table, and local newspapers available.
We will definitely stay here again!!!

We loved this place and will stay here the next time we go up to Napa. We had room 207 - which has a fireplace and a full sofa sectional, in addition to the big King bed. The room was well appointed and very large for the price! Our host was super nice at the front desk. It was our anniversary and he congratulated us when we arrived and when we left. The whole lobby / breakfast / sitting area was decorated so beautifully for Christmas (we went 12/27 - 12/29/13). There were figurines everywhere and it made it even warmer and inviting. Breakfast has a huge selection for a continental breakfast. You are about a 2 minute drive to downtown Napa and right across the freeway from the outlet stores.

Room Tip: As for room 207! Big with a fireplace!!!
