We stayed here for one night at the end of our week in Sonoma/Napa. After staying at a B&B and a very nice Inn, this was definitely not the setting that we were used to. The front desk staff mad ea mistake with my billing but they made it right after I spoke to 3 different people about it.
-Great value for a weekend night
-Materra tasting room is right next door
-Proximity to the best shops and restaurants in St. Helena (Some of our favorites: the St. Helena Olive Oil Company as well as their bath product store up the street, Olivier, and Woodhouse Chocolate)
-Too many different people working at the front desk=confusion
-You will not get a warm, welcoming feeling; it actually feels quite cold and impersonal
-No breakfast except for cereal bars and fruit in the morning
-The volunteer fire alarm at 7 AM (I realize this is not controlled by the hotel, and they did warn us about it, but it's still annoying)
-The rooms were relatively quiet at night but you could hear noise in the hallway if anyone was walking through it
-Shower is large, but it reminded me a little bit of hospital walls and floor with the type of tile
So if you only care about proximity to St. Helena, it's a decent place. But if you want a warm, welcoming place to stay check out a B&B instead. It's just not what we prefer when we travel and we probably wouldn't stay again, but many others might enjoy it.
