Recommended by a friend, the hotel was a wonderful throwback to an era when spa resorts were really about the natural resources. The mineral pools were wonderfully relaxing, and not crowded. We tried a mud bath (for the first and, probably, last time --it's one of those things you either like or you don't) but spent most of our time... More

Comfortable, clean large rooms. This property is charming and kept, the staff always makes us feel comfortable and welcomes our children. We really come for the pools to take in the waters- my kids have eczema and after a day or two of playing in the mineral pools, their skin is rash-free and baby smooth (unfortunately it does come back...

I have been coming to Wilkinsons for several years now. Probably time to write a review! On the edge of downtown, this Calistoga institution has stood the test of time. Pleasant and comfortable rooms, three lovely pools of different temperatures. The staff are very helpful...we even got a thoughtful call to let us know that the speedway was hosting races... More

We took advantage of a midweek special which included a mud bath and mineral bath treatment. The place is fun and relaxing, quiet and centrally located in the town. We walked the town twice and enjoyed not having to drive to dinner. The spa treatment was fun and restorative. I am a sucker for mineral baths and this one was... More

This place is clean and orderly. The room we were in was very large. The grounds are pleasant and quiet at least on a Thursday night in February. We had a fun time trying the mud baths. One thing I really liked about our stay was that never had to drive the whole time we were in town. There are... More

I have been going to Dr. Wilkinsons Spa & Hotel for decades & have always been very pleased with everything, but this time I was very disappointed that the steam room or lack thereof has diminished to almost nothing. I think this is a very important phase of the relaxation process & it needs to be restored to its previous... More

We had such a great stay at this hotel. Mark Wilkinson went out of his way to make sure we were well taken care of. I simply cannot say enough about the personal touches this property rewards its guests. The retro vibe is awesome and the rooms are large, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The entire property is spotless and... More

My first experience with a mud bath, travelled with a friend. Great value for the package. Had the mud bath, mineral bath, steam room and massage. All aspects very relaxing. Derick did a great job with the massage, highly recommend him. Staff also very friendly overall. Will definitely be back.

We have stayed at Dr. Wilkinson’s many times, though not for the last couple years. They used to have a good winter package deal for a room and mud & massage treatment. We still very much liked the treatment and I’ll write that up under Attractions. The pools, indoor and outdoor, are a treat after a long day of eating... More

we stayed upstairs (room 34) nothing fancy- but a nice clean room. I have stayed here before so I knew what to except. Yes the walls are cylinder blocks ... but that's ok it just adds to the style. The staff and service was great! It was a rainy weekend, so the large indoor mineral spa was wonderful... we would... More
