Our double queen room had been up dated but the heater that was in the dressing room was very noisy so we shut the door to sleep but our bedroom area was cold. Staff was pleasant. The outside areas were kept clean as for the pools. I opted for the mud bath, mineral bath and message. They REALLY need some... More

Calistoga is a quick and easy escape from cold and foggy SF so I've been to most of the hotels here and this one has its quirks. Overall the Superior King room we booked was average and on par with other hotels in the area for similar prices. The fresh paint and new sink brought it up to acceptable standards.... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. I offer sincere apologies for the Jacuzzi jets not functioning during your New Year's stay. Sadly, finding replacement parts was impossible due to the holiday. As an inn-keeper, this is about the last thing you want to have happen. Our pools are chlorinated per County mandate and... More

Never disappoints! Time after time, the best place to stay and relax with a spa treatment too!!!! The outside may not look amazing but the inside is. The bonus is....you are staying in such a quaint beautiful city in the middle of wine country. City is walkable and wine country is right there! The perfect place for a relaxing get... More

We checked in for one night in a king suite. I couldn't tell from the online photographs if the remodeled rooms would be nice or not, so I was hesitant about this reservation. The room was clean, simple and basic, and was very large! Classical music was playing when we opened the door! It was modern, but still had that... More

Extreme disappointment! I cannot begin to think that the reviews for this place have been done by anyone but the staff or the owners. It was old smelly and dirty. The rooms should not be able to be rented in the condition that they were in. the bedding is original betting I'm assuming from the 70s or 80s. I was... More

So sorry that we couldn't please you! I am the owner and " the creepy guy" who suggested you might go elsewhere. Disappointed that we did not meet your expectations but happy that you found solace elsewhere. Most find me pleasant and sincere. Always being open to feedback, I will contemplate just how I might be viewed or thought of... More

This was my second stay at Dr. Wilkinson's. The rooms are still immaculate, staff very friendly and accommodating, and the location can't be beat. The hotel is right on the main street (Lincoln Ave.) in Calistoga, so you can walk to all the restaurants and shops. I love the warm outdoor pool and the HUGE hot indoor whirlpool. You can't...

Imagine aromatherapy, meets massage, meets soothing hot waters, and a comfy-cozy room with kitchenette for making a romantic breakfast. Dr. Wilkinson's is Calistoga's most underrated B&B in town. Loved there and loved it!

I stayed here without any choice in September 2012. The place is really a great place especially for the price. It was so great I went back with my boyfriend and stayed there again 3 years later. It doesn't look like much. It is a motel of sorts. But it is clean and well kept. There are 3 pools that... More

I suppose 'basic' would summarize the experience. It was clean and located conveniently at the end of the main street in Calistoga. Beyond that...there isn't much positive to say. The room did not have lined curtains so the best one could hope for at night was a twilight experience. The internet did not function. The desk staff suggested walking outside... More

Hello Chuck L, Thanks for the review! I certainly wish that we had made you happier! Our location is great and most enjoy the mid-century modern REAL feel to the place. I can only assume that you didn't have time for the three pools, the treatments and all the rest. Quite honestly, we Wilkinson's are on the short side, although... More

Okay it is me again...Kat Martin...BUT PLEASE SERIOUSLY...Calistoga is a majestic place where lodging has taken advantage of the economy. Dr. Wilkenson's Hot Springs Resort has never neglected that.

Dear Kat, You are too kind but a review from one such as you who has worked at high end properties makes me feel and encourages me to continue our long standing tradition of hospitality, comfort, and up-scale affordable. Many, many thanks! We've recently added couples treatments to our services. Best, Mark Wilkinson More
