Pros: Great pillows! The Keurig coffee maker a morning treat. The in-room mini-fridge a nice amenity. The close proximity to downtown St. Helena a convenient location.
Cons: The pool-side room was in close proximity to the Hwy. During the day, one could hear the whistle of the Wine Train going back and forth. Being the train was across the street, the whistle sounded very loud and not at all romantic nor relaxing while lounging by the pool, but since the train ran by only a couple of times one could say it was tolerable. However, during our stay Caltrans was doing work on the Hwy. Jack-hammers and asphalt trucks are loud: especially at night! Wish the Staff would have told us about the construction at Check-in, but they didn't. To add insult to injury, on the eve of our 2nd night, a very large tree limb fell off the old poolside evergreen crashing down on the car two stalls down from ours. More lullaby music with chainsaws that night and the entire next morning. Not once did the Management come to apologize for the noise, inconvenience, or advise us of the intended work. Truthfully, if I were the Owners of this property, I would have the Management and Front Desk Host immediately participate in a Course on Customer Service, as both lacked any skills in this arena, especially when dealing with unforeseen events. The lack of interest in their guests' quality of stay after the above mentioned incidents put this Staff at the bottom of my list, and made what could have been a tolerable stay a miserable one.

Pros: It was very convenient for us to go to our favorite winery.
Cons: The adjacent highway was being repaired at night so there was some noise from backup beepers on vehicles.
