From the time we came to the front desk, we felt welcome.our room was great (Jacuzzi room). Michelle was our mud bath advisor and she explain every detail of our experience. It was our first time. Gary gave a great message. He was so tentitive. For relaxation and a escape, go to Golden Haven in Calistoga, California.

I came here solo last minute for an overnight getaway from my crazy life with an infant. (Have I mentioned that I have The. Best. Husband. In. The. World.) I'm pretty nitpicky when it comes to hotels rooms, and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice my room was. It was clean, it was roomy, and it had great accessible... More

I shared them under tips to travelers. Please look below under tips for travelers. I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet atmosphere around the grounds and the fact that you aren't charged for the room until you check in to the Motel. It is more a motel rather than a hotel.

I booked the couples mud bath/treatment for a morning appointment. This isn't so much a spa as a ymca vibe. The waiting room is right next to the hotel reception desk so it is very noisy and not relaxing. Once in, the spa is pretty spartan and a dated. I've never intentionally had a mud bath so I have no... More

Coming from out of state, we weren't sure what the weather would be like in Calistoga in March. In a word: gorgeous! Fresh air, green grass, flowering trees, sunshine... not too hot or cold. And definitely not crowded at all. Golden Haven is within comfortable walking distance of Lincoln Avenue, the main street through town, so groceries, restaurants and shopping... More

We have been coming to this spa for years! We always enjoy the mud bath & massage. It was nice to see that some money has been put back into the facilities for some much needed updates and a bit of a facelift. Prices are very reasonable and the staff has always been welcoming. We hope to be coming here... More

Went here for an 8:00 pm mud bath and facial. It was very enjoyable. Our attendant Michelle was very helpful guiding us through the process since we had never done a mud bath. It is intensely hot in the mud and very soothing. The entire experience was worth it. Very relaxing.

My wife and I are returning guests. Stayed in the spa tub room for two nights. Staff is great and accommodating. Went for the mineral water and spa treatments . Town of Calistoga has just enough to do and see. We have tried other spa places , but seen to always come back to Golden Haven. New breakfast lounge is... More

When we registered I was quite astonished to be handed a key with a plastic tag that had the name of the hotel and the room number on it. If a guest should lose theirs they better hope that it is not found by a dishonest person. This is something I have not seen since the 70s. Add to that... More

We spent one night here and did a mud bath. The mud bath was our first experience and we loved it. However, the overnight room accommodations were pretty average and not worth the value that you could get somewhere else. Our room was clean, but pretty small and nothing special. There isn't a breakfast available at the hotel, although there... More
