Calistoga is one of my favorite places. I have been to Wilkinson's many times. The rooms are retro, the water is warm, the walk down Lincoln Ave. is short and sweet. Ahhhh... this place is soooooo relaxing.

Coming from a different continent, we first enjoyed this quintessential American place in the early 1990s with an older generation of our family. This time we brought our son along. The mid-20th century feel of it, the simple but comfortable rooms, the relaxed and unassuming ambience and the ultimate mud bath experience - so different from state of the art... More

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?

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.
