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

We had a most wonderful time at Dr. Wilkinson's Hot Springs Ressort! It's a very well-maintained, authentic family-owned spa. Owner and employees were super- friendly. The 3 pools (especially the hot one with the Jets) are awesome and the whole place is spotless clean. A great place to relax.The sign at the street speaks for the spa's authenticity. We'll be...

We stayed in the Victorian House in Room 39 with the bay window in the front of the house. I was a little concerned that we would hear street noise all night but it was amazingly quiet and peaceful and we slept soundly on a fabulous bed. The Victorian has been fairly recently remodeled and the decor was charming. Split... More

Dear Baycyd, Thanks for the review. I was here when you checked in with Gabriel and overheard you saying that you that you love to review. You made me a little nervous! :) Your kind review is so validating to me! Nevertheless, maintaining and providing comfort in an awesome Valley and town is in no way taken for granted. Hope... More

We've been coming to calistoga for 20+ years, although first time at wilkinsons. Rooms were old and very dark but clean. Went to get ice first morning and tripped on the uneven walkway in front on rooms. Cut open bothe knees elbows eye nose and mouth. I filled out an incident report at the request of housekeeping when I asked... More

We both arrived at the resort tired by having worked hard for weeks. We wanted to relax in a resort without all the fussiness and superficiality of luxurous spa resorts. We wanted to be "at home" while taking care of ourselves. During our stay, the staff was very welcoming, courteous, efficient, and paid great attention not to disturb our privacy,... More

The rooms are a little old but very clean. A nice touch is the bath robes that are rarely found in most hotels. They have two outdoor heated pools and a wonderful indoor heated (110) pool of mineral water, perfect just before retiring to bed for the evening. The location is great after a day of winery visits as you... More

My daughter and I stayed overnight in early April. We have been here many times and it is always clean, comfortable and relaxing. The staff is friendly and helpful and the indoor hot6 pool is wonderful. We love having the grocery store across the street and downtown just down the block. Great for munching and strolling.

Thanks much for the kind review! I hope to see you here again soon! We are currently doing a remodel of our upstairs rooms with two queen beds. Even though we've been around for a number of years, we are constantly doing something to make the property better without taking away the genuine "feel" of the hot springs and Calistoga!... More
