Spent two nights while on a Napa wine trip. We selected Christopher's to be out of the hubbub of the main Napa area and the price was reasonable. The room was large, clean and just a little dated. Breakfast was included. They provided cereal, bagels, yogurt, hard boiled eggs and fruit. Not glamorous but does the trick. Walking distance to...

We stayed here for a week while taking a course at the CIA in St. Helena. Our individual rooms where somewhat on the small size but to be fair they where single rooms. The lobby was getting a major overhaul and looked much improved by the time we left. Personnel were all very nice and helpful. Continental breakfast was adequate...

We have stayed here multiple times over the last ten years. Ownership changed two years ago (which was a good thing). Having said that, roomies are clean and nice, and price is very attractive given competition in Napa valley. You can walk to downtown Calistoga for drinks and meals. Our room had a curtain that was falling off the window,...

This hotel is perfectly located in Calistoga - close to both wineries and restaurants. Great for a weekend get-away to enjoy some good food and wine in the lovely Calistoga. A bit too pricey to include breakfast since it wasn't that much to choose from.

My husband and I stayed in one of the standard queen rooms. The room was teeny tiny - it seemed smaller than hotels rooms that I have stayed in in NYC. The "fireplace" was a fake chunk of wood with a lightbulb behind it - no real fire, literally a lightbulb - and it didn't even give off heat. The...

Dear RP11, I am so sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. Providing a good start to the day is important to us and I am sorry breakfast was disappointing for you. We aim to provide a fresh healthy breakfast along with daily fresh baked pastries and muffins from a local bakery. I will review with...

We stayed one night but had a pleasant experience and would definitely stay again. Loved the fireplace in our patio room. The room was very comfortable as was our bed. Breakfast was continental and fine for what it is. It's an easy walk into town. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Stayed 3 nights, 2 days. First day drove to Alexander Valley, Geyserville and return. Stopped at tasting rooms along the way. Had lunch in Geyserville. A wonderful day trip. The second day went to wineries near the Inn. Another wonderful day. The inn is an easy walk tp Calistoga. Quaint town with good restaurants. Tasting room in the town.

This charming little inn is located on the main road and a convenient base from where to visit the Calistoga wineries. We stayed only for one night but will go back in the future if the opportunity arises. We had a spacious bathroom, even though the bedroom itself was not that big. The cherry on the top of the cake...

I stayed here during the holidays and was very happy to have done so. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I had to reduce the number of rooms from my original reservation and they were happy to accommodate. I will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights at end December. It was lovely. Room was excellent with a lovely fire. Close to "downtown" Calistoga so great for me for walking. There was also a continental breakfast which was more than adequate. Would definitely come back again.
