We got the Harvest suite so its 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath and a full livingroom that separates them. We loved the room and the location as it was only a short walk to town and lots near by for things to do in our mind. So for location and room comfort it scored a 3.5 stars from us but since...

The Old World Inn was very charming and the location was great-walking distance to downtown. The breakfasts were delicious and I loved the happy hours and nightly treats. As for cons, our bed wasn't that comfortable and I think the place could use some updating. I also wasn't super pleased with the customer service. I had pre-ordered the option of...

My wife and I had booked two nights in the Barrel room at the Merlot house. When we arrived the Inn staff showed us our room. The Barrel room felt like a dungeon and smelled musty, and the bed looked deformed and not comfortable. We asked the Inn keeper to move us to a more acceptable room and she apologized...

We loved this B&B- we stayed in the Chocolate Room. The service was great, food was very good- we always had breakfast there and just had mid- afternoon snack. Location was not far from all the great places to go! See my other Napa reviews, for all my favorites :)

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I just returned from our 5 night stay at The Old World Inn. This Inn is actually comprised of 3 or 4 restored homes. We stayed at the Merlot House located 2 short blocks from the main house. Breakfast for Merlot guests is served in the restored home next door. The 2 bedroom, 1 1/2...

Stayed at the Old World Inn April 2017, Property located in 3 separate buildings ie old houses from many years ago. Seems to be well kept. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Do NOT expect to check in before the 3pm check in time. It won't happen. Being a B&B breakfast is provided, time it was available we were already out...

There are 3 houses that make up the Old World Inn "campus". Merlot and Cabernet are next to each other and the main house is around the block. I think the Cabernet house is the best - great common areas and a beautiful dining room (people staying at the main house eat in the basement which doubles as a wine...

First time I have ever stayed here. Loved it! It had a great look. Old, yet modern. The place is very clean. The rooms and beds were fantastic. Walking up the steps to our room, the stairs are very creaky. Again, loved it. The breakfasts were outstanding as well. Located right where we wanted as well. Super close to Napa...

Very good service. Which is important to us. The room was immaculately clean. All the amenities - hair dryer, lotion, lots of towels, even a fireplace. Front desk woman was wonderful. Helpful with info about town and the house. The common rooms were so pretty! Antique trim, floors, fireplaces. Loved the atmosphere. Close to downtown Napa and to the highway,...

My wife and I stayed at the Old World Inn twice--once for our honeymoon, and then again seven years later when we returned to Napa. When we are able to return to Napa again, you can bet we'll be staying against at Old World Inn. I think that really sums up my opinion of the place. This is just a...
