After staying both at Dr. Wilkinson's and at a more "upscale" spa a few blocks away, we were back at the Doc's for this year's anniversary visit to Calistoga. There's just something very appealing about the super friendly, studiously low-tech environment and the emphasis placed on comfort over glitz. Our basic king room was spacious and sparkly clean with plenty... More

The (refurbished) king size room was clean and simply attractive. No frills, but that's what I wanted. The beds were great and comfy. Bath house: "The Works" including one hour massage (thank you Beth) put me in a completely altered, relaxed, and wonderful space. It was very plain; (maybe original '50s) but clean and pleasant, and the treatment was sensational.... More

It's not the Hilton, but the rooms are clean and it is in the heart of Calistoga town. It has two mineral pools outside to swim/linger in. It has an indoor hot mineral pool with whirlpool jets too. If you forget to bring swimming trunks they have loaners. The hot indoor pool is connected to the spa, which is where... More

We go here with a large group a couple times a year. The back rooms have small and limited kitchens that need some updating but we use them along with things brought from home for comfortable family meals. The staff is always willing to help and makes sure we have everything we need. Although there is free wifi, it is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed 3 mineral pools, with 3 different temps! Our skin felt so soft & exfoliated after & we loved it! Relaxed in our nice comfy robes, & the room came w/a mini fridge so we were able to chill our wine we'd bought wine tasting & enjoyed it at dinner. Hotel staff was very friendly, our room was...

When my husband and I were planning our Napa Valley destination wedding we knew that we wanted to find a hotel location where friends and family could stay together and take advantage of the best that Napa Valley has to offer without the burden of the standard Napa Valley price tag. Dr Wilkinson's strikes that perfect balance. We had already... More

Nice clean hotel room along with attentive staff. It has 3 really good pools (hot, warm, cool) which are available to all guest, not just spa guest. Although, it is a "dated" decor, it seems to work. And for the area the price is reasonable that is why I gave it the highest marks

We stayed at this property over the Fourth of July weekend. Overall, we were very pleased and found the rooms spacious, clean and quiet. We were however disappointed with the lack of management presence on a holiday weekend with respect to the pool area. As is often the case over a holiday weekend there were some partiers present and unfortunately... More

Dear RenoTwig, Thank you so much for leaving your review. I am always pleased to hear feedback! Indeed, the 4th of July holiday is a major family event with many return guests and children. We do not allow large "floaties" and the guests were indeed asked to remove them. Unfortunately, we can not go and directly ask guests what is... More

I love going to Dr. Wilkinson's with my wife and kids! The pools and large hot tub are wonderful. The hotel rooms are spacious and quiet. The location in town is perfect to walk to all stores and food spots. My only complaint this time is that they have a sign on the gate before you enter the pool that... More

Dear Nate , Thank you so very much for your kind review!. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your visit here and hope to see you again soon! As to "the sign", it is a new regulation mandated by the State of California and Napa County Department of Health. Trust me......we don't like to have to post this sign but... More

Have been visiting Doc Wilkinson's for over 30 years, and it is my go to place for rest and relaxation. The rooms are lovely and restful. No 'froo froo' here, but very clean, comfy beds, in-room robes, TV, fridge, coffee maker and all the basics you need. The main draw for me is the kind, hospitable service and the magnificent... More
