Four girlfriends on a weekend getaway and we decided to stay at this budget friendly, quaint and centrally located cottage/hotel. The rooms were clean and have all the amenities. The pool was wonderful and really warm (I think about 80+) and the hot tub was warm. We got two rooms which each had king sized beds in one room and... More

Nice little place that is more reasonable then a lot of places around. Room could use some modernization but it was clean. We had a gigantic jacuzzi in our room. That was a nice touch though it does smell pretty sulfuric as your filling it. The Lady at the front desk was nice and seemed to genuinely care about our... More

We stayed at Carlin Country Cottages for this past Valentines Day weekend since we were meeting friends in Calistoga. These cottages are about 3 blocks away from the main strip of downtown. The room was a bit dated but came with a full kitchen. The walls were a bit thin - we could hear the conversations from next door. There... More

I came to Calistoga for a seminar being held at the Mayacamus Ranch a few miles away. I had wanted to stay at the ranch, but there were no rooms left by the time I registered. So I hoped to find an inexpensive chain hotel (e.g., Motel 6) since all my time would be spent off-site. Surprise! Had no idea... More

My husband and I needed a place not too far from home for a couple of days of rest and relaxation. We read the reviews and all the comments on how the décor was old but we didn't care, we'd take our chances. We booked a room with a jetted tub. We didn't know how big it would be or... More

A tune kept playing in my mind "Lost in the Fifties Tonight's". The one bedroom suite was furnished and finished like it was mid last century. Two bulb ceiling fixtures, worn cupboards and the sparsest of cutlery, dishes and appliances. However, the place grows on you. First of all the price is better than most anywhere else in Calistoga. It's... More

After researching towns in the Napa Valley wine country and reading many reviews we found the Carlin Country Cottages online. It was initially the affordable room rate that caught our attention. We called to ask a few questions before booking and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We decided to go for it and we were not disappointed. From... More

These cottages were adequate. From the ads, I expected something more. They are clearly older in looks, and definitely have a late 50’s feel. Simply put, they are old fashion, but not quaint. Overall, they are functional and we had no real complaints except that the WIFI rarely worked for more than two minutes at a time . . .... More

We were a party of five adults, two nights, wished we could have stayed longer. Quiet, very comfortable, and spotlessly clean (room, beds, bathroom, kitchen)! Enjoyed the garden - tables, chairs, lawn swing - for a glass of wine, talking, reading...Highly recommend!
