We stayed here for our second time! This time on the second floor. The ambiance of this cute little place has to be one of our favorite places in Calistoga. The entire hotel staff is super friendly. The rooms are very clean & recently renovated. We got two 1hr massages. We've had massages at other places in town, & we... More

That was the main question I had when my friends booked a package for us here. What do you wear...what do you do, etc. This place is fantastic. I have had many massages and this place was by far the best. There is no frilly stuff...but they work out your muscles in a quick, efficient manner. You can wear a... More

I've been here a couple of other times, and just enjoy stepping back in time! They built this place in 1950 or so, and so all the rooms are accessed from the outside. Like an old school Holiday Inn. They have upgraded the rooms fairly recently, and the room was nice, comfy bed, flat screen TV, etc. Only objection was... More

Many, many thanks for your review. I truly enjoy happy guests and all feedback. You are correct about the free internet. It can be spotty in the rooms but always available in the front reception area and patios. Our goal is to improve connectivity for those that consider it important. I also think that going "unplugged" can be a really... More

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
