I've stayed at Dr. Wilkinson's frequently over a span of two decades; when we first used to sty there, the venerable doctor was still present, 'though not running the resort. Since his death, the place has undergone several renovations -- but not necessarily in a good way. The giant indoor jacuzzi/pool still bubbles and is a haven of relaxation; the... More

This place is HANDS DOWN the best bang for you buck in Calistoga. I used to go to Indian Springs for day treatments only. Because who could afford to do anything else there? The prices for all the same services are SO MUCH better at Dr. Wilkinson's we can afford to stay the night!! They have two great heated outdoor... More

I've stayed here a bunch and enjoyed the pools.. But today I got a mud bath- in peet and volcanic ash and it was awesome. Cucumber slices over your eyes, followed by mineral bath, steam room and massage....yes please!! The pools are nice too but seemed a little crowed with families with kids...so I opted not so much on that... More

I recently stayed here with four other friends for a bachelorette after searching through Napa, Sonoma, St Helena and eventually landing on Calistoga for a relaxing spa party. Dr Wilkinson's was the PERFECT place to go. It was the best value of anywhere else we called. The rooms clean, the staff was friendly and everywhere else we called was three... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Calistoga which is In the Napa Valley. I've been coming here for 20 years. They have a full service spa with reasonably priced treatments and a wonderful large hot tub as well as two other pools. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I highly recommend it for a nice relaxing stay in the... More

Just visited Calistoga and stayed at Dr. Wilkinson's for the third time. This time I took a gang of friends and it was a perfect weekend. The location in downtown Calistoga is perfect as you can walk to many restaurants and shops. The spa is wonderful and all of us had at least a massage and many partook in the... More

My brother and I were looking for a spot in Calistoga to relax after a difficult couple of years. This is the perfect place! Cordial and helpful staff, lovely grounds and amenities. The proximity to everything in Calistoga also a plus (grocery store next door, on the main street). We enjoyed their clean and peaceful mud baths, hydrotherapy tubs and... More

We had a most wonderful time at Dr. Wilkinson's Hot Springs Ressort! It's a very well-maintained, authentic family-owned spa. Owner and employees were super- friendly. The 3 pools (especially the hot one with the Jets) are awesome and the whole place is spotless clean. A great place to relax.The sign at the street speaks for the spa's authenticity. We'll be...

We stayed in the Victorian House in Room 39 with the bay window in the front of the house. I was a little concerned that we would hear street noise all night but it was amazingly quiet and peaceful and we slept soundly on a fabulous bed. The Victorian has been fairly recently remodeled and the decor was charming. Split... More

Dear Baycyd, Thanks for the review. I was here when you checked in with Gabriel and overheard you saying that you that you love to review.

We've been coming to calistoga for 20+ years, although first time at wilkinsons. Rooms were old and very dark but clean. Went to get ice first morning and tripped on the uneven walkway in front on rooms. Cut open bothe knees elbows eye nose and mouth. I filled out an incident report at the request of housekeeping when I asked... More
