Whether staying in Napa City, Calistoga, Yountville or anywhere else in Napa Valley, California's wine country has plenty of choice accommodation to offer. Hotels, inns, guesthouses, ranches, resorts, bed and breakfasts and even old railway carriages provide a range of room options and prices.

Napa Valley is expensive, though, partly because the general standard of accommodation in Wine Country is so high. There are a few budget hotels and other cheap options, however, and the following suggestions come highly recommended.

Mid-Price Napa Options

Calistoga Inn, Restaurant and Brewery
1250 Lincoln Avenue, Calistoga, CA 94515
Tel: (707) 942 4101
Established in 1882 and a firm favorite ever since, the Calistoga Inn has a great location by the river, with 18 rooms in period style. All rooms have their own sink but bathrooms and shower rooms have to be shared, which is why it's cheaper than most.

The Inn has its own popular restaurant, with an outdoor dining patio by the river, and in fine weather the chefs cook on wood-fired grills next to the patio. There's also a micro-brewery on-site, and live music every night. On Friday and Saturday nights, with dancing till midnight, this Wine Country joint does jump.

Napa Valley Railway Inn

Tel: (707) 944-2000
The Napa Valley Railway Inn is definitely for those who like something unusual. Sited on original track from the Napa Valley Railroad, railway cars and cabooses have been cleverly converted into accommodation that is both quirky and, for the price, verging on the luxury. Guests get complimentary membership of the nearby Yountville Fitness Center.
