I was appalled at this cottage. It was not in a good neighborhood and when pulling in, I felt as if we were pulling into a shady outdoor motel location. It was very run down in the room. When I opened the mini fridge to store drinks, there was melted ice cream all over the fridge. I picked this place... More

Our apology to dirty disappointment. We are sorry she did not enjoy her stay. However may I explain the Jacuzzi room experience. The water that fills the jacuzzi tub is straight from our hot springs. Hence the rotten egg smell. The dark specs from the jets are dried mineral deposits from the water. There are instructions in every room that... More

Clean, quiet stay in Calistoga. Located just off the main drag and close to restaurants and shops. Great headquarters for a few days in upper Napa Valley. Very close to dozens of award- winning wineries.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed with our stay here because we felt the lodging was more of a motel than what we expected. Everything was fine but not what we expected for the money and value- we did not think that this was going to be like an old motor lodge.

This is a very nice alternative to a regular hotel room. The cottages were immaculate with a very nice kitchen. Very good value and location. Loved staying here! I traveled solo and was very comfortable staying here. The outside grounds were well kept and the flowers added a nice touch. 2 large grills were available along with picnic tables.

There were 3 families and we rented 4 rooms and everyone of us loved our "cottage". This probably was a motor lodge but they have refurbished it and it really is a quaint and lovely place to stay. Nice, large, clean rooms, most have kitchens, microwave, refridgerator. Each cottage has an outdoor area where you can sit outside sip your... More

Carlin Cottages is located in Calistoga, close to a market and the main street. You can easily walk or drive to downtown. The cottages are clean, quiet, have everything you need for a comfortable stay. We rented 4 rooms and they have a great outdoor space to hang out and relax, eat lunch and then we played some games after... More

Back in time review says it all. Good value, great place to have as a meeting place for friends. More DIY, but comfortable & near everything. Rent a bike @ Calistoga bike shop, stop by Calistoga Roastery, hope on the wine shuttle....

Carlin is a couple of blocks off the main drag in Calistoga. It has a small number of rooms. It's an older building, but well maintained, and very clean. It has a pool and hot tub heated by spring water. When we were there, it was very quiet, and we had the hot tub to ourselves. I recommend it.

Got a mini suite with a full kitchen and pull out couch. Clean room. Gas grills were available to use, as well as a pool and hot tub. Great value, especially when you can use the kitchen or grills to save a bit on meal. Will definitely stay again.
