Not Very Cordial – While the website looks great and the backyard is like it is shown on the website, it is located right on a highway and the noise from the road is a factor. We flew in from the east coast and arrived at the Millikin Creek Inn around 3:00 PM, hungry from a day of flying and had jet lag. With that we asked if there was a nearby restaurant (the Inn does not have one). They sent us to a quaint place called Don Giovani's. Great food and atmosphere. Now the story about Millikin. We went to bed early around 6:30 PM because it was 9:30 on the east coast. Well needless to say we were up at 6:00 am west coast time. While walking around in our overpriced room we got a call from the owner (Sunday Morning at 6:45 saying we were bouncing around a making too much noise for the guest on the floor below us. Needless to say, I explained that going to the bathroom did not constitute bouncing around and suggested she fix the acoustics in their room and not blame the guests paying over priced rates. We said we would leave but she did not want to give us our money back for the second night. That night a wedding party showed up and we listened to them on the floor below making noise and taking a Jaccuzzi at midnight. Needless to say, it spoiled our trip to Napa. I would not recomend this Inn. Mush better places elswhere.
Sophisticated blend of Europe and Asia, bedroom and spa. – The Scene
This hotel's twelve romantic rooms lie on the banks of the meandering Napa River. The setting is peaceful and elegant, the hospitality phenomenal. Gourmet breakfasts are packed in picnic baskets for guests to enjoy on wine country jaunts, back at the hotel's waterfall terrace, or, an even more popular option, in their soft down-covered beds.
Unlike many of its wine country neighbors with their frilly Victorian lace and overpowering floral wallpaper, this elegant inn takes the clean, soothing ambiance of its spa into the bedroom. Not all rooms are the same, but all are sophisticated, and appointed with fireplaces, L'Occitane bath salts and fine Frette linens. In luxury rooms the white, khaki, lemon, and olive tones join palm fronds, gauze canopies, and Balinese fans to create a colonial Indochine flavor. In premium suites, guests can enjoy their own private spa with hydrotherapy bathtubs and a private riverfront terrace.
Honeymoon Blues – My husband and I stayed here back in September while on our honeymoon. While the inn is lovely, the service needs work. Here is a short list of the comedy of errors we encountered during our stay: our room was double booked when we arrived; it took an hour for them to relocate us; housekeeping knocked at our door 3 times in one evening when we had the 'do not disturb' sign on the door; service staff calls "prosucitto" "pro-scoot-toe"; and received apology note with huge typo among other things. We wrote a letter to the owners and never heard anything back -- bad customer service! The spa, however, is fabulous.
As good as it gets – Romantic atmosphere, spacious and luxurious rooms, tranquil setting, fantastic staff. Between the amazingly comfortable bed, the spa tub, and the fireplace, we found it extremely difficult to tear ourselves away from the inn long enough to actually go do some wine tasting.
Hidden Treasure and 5 star Staff – This inn is anything but little - the management and staff are larger than life - an inn that most delightfully recognizes the needs of the traveler in the new millenium. The new owners are not only friendly but they are so honest about providing the best in service. The rooms are decorated with great space and comfort, and with a deliscious breakfast every morning and a cheese and wine social in the evenings. Allows you to indugle and meet those just as lucky. Rumor has it this spring brings more improvement in the # of rooms, flat screen tv's and more service's.......thank you to the staff for their dedication and thank you to the management for urge to revisit and experience this inn over and over. See you in the late spring..
best in the wine country – My wife and I travel extensively and I can honestly say this property easily ranks up with the best we have ever stayed at. The quality and sophistication of the rooms and décor, the service and ultra attentive staff was a 10+. The premium rooms are pricy, however our experience is that the other comparable hotels were more expensive ($600+) and not as refined. Our friends we traveled with felt the same and we plan to visit again next year.
First Night Great...Second Night O.k. – The Milliken Creek Inn is a simple, elegant, and luxurious piece of property. On our first night we were able to upgrade to a nicer room--one that had a fireplace, jacuzzi tub, view of the river, and was very roomy. The room was worth the $295(normally $425) a night price tag. However, on the second night for the same price we were in a very cozy 300sqf room--that while it was nice--was not worth the money. Overall the experience was good, but not great.
