Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Nice location close to more than 20 wineries
  • Attractive and quaint hacienda-style property
  • All suites, featuring gorgeous wood-beamed ceilings and carved wood furniture
  • Suites are 2 levels; a sitting area on the lower level, bedroom and bathroom on the upper level
  • 27-inch flat-screen TVs
  • Refrigerators, minibars, and coffeemakers
  • Free, bountiful breakfast; free Wi-Fi
  • Some suites feature a wood-burning fireplaces, private balconies, or Jacuzzis
  • Alex Italian restaurant serves dishes from the Liguria and Romagna regions of Italy

Cons

  • No pool, spa, or fitness center
  • Business center is a wicker chair and unsecured laptop in a corner of the lobby
  • Rooms are on the dark side; lighting could be brighter
  • Alarm clock/CD player combos are outdated

Bottom Line

This 26-room, two-story inn has the charm of a Spanish hacienda, with stucco walls and pretty hand-painted details. It's an all-suite property, and the suites are spacious and rustic, with dark wood-beamed ceilings and carved wooden furniture. The suites are also bi-level, with the living area on the lower level, and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Modern amenities include flat-screen TVs and a DVD player, but the alarm clock/CD player combos are outdated. Outside, a lovely courtyard features beautiful overgrown trees and shrubs, and stone and wrought-iron details are pretty. But the property lacks the features of a larger hotel: There's no pool, spa, or fitness center.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In the residential town of Rutherford, with more than 20 wineries just five minutes away

Rancho Caymus is located in downtown Rutherford, which is a small residential area surrounded by more than 20 wineries. Across the street from the inn is a Mexican food market.

Located in Northern California north of the San Francisco Bay area, Napa Valley has one of the United States' most prominent and lucrative wine industries. With rolling hills and vineyards at virtually every turn, this upscale tourist town retains a quaint and rustic quality, thanks in part to its amazing natural landscape. Although Napa doesn't have nightlife in the traditional sense, it is home to an Opera House and the Uptown Theater, as well as dozens of wineries.

  • 28-minute drive to Napa County Airport
  • 75-minute drive to Oakland International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to Rutherford Grill restaurant and a local market
  • 5-minute drive to more than 20 wineries
  • 7-minute drive to St. Helena
  • 11-minute drive to Yountville
  • 13-minute drive to Napa County Regional Park district
  • 30-minute drive to golfing at Silverado Country Club and Napa Valley Country Club
  • 40-minute drive to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park
  • 75-minute drive to San Francisco
  • 80-minute drive to Lake Berryessa
