I do wish I could give this hotel more stars. It is a quieter, cute choice compared to staying directly downtown; it's just about ¼ mile away. The front desk people were helpful and pleasant. Three mineral pools of varying temperatures were wonderful. The problems: 1) Minor: Staff did not replenish the guest towels for the pools; someone had to... More

I was traveling solo for a convention in St.Helena.this location is a beautiful short ride away. Located close to downtown, it was convenient to the town's adorable and well stocked grocery store and terrific dining at D'Amicis. (I ate there twice) Don't forget to pack a swim suit~ even in winter. The hot springs filled outdoor pool is open year... More

We got an excellent last minute deal at this hotel which contributed to my positive review. Not sure I'd be as excited had I spent $250 instead of $109/night but the staff was great, the room (we got an upgrade) was very large and clean, and the bed was very comfy. Yes, there could have been more towel racks and... More

I like this place and dont regret choosing it, however, there are a couple things that could use some help. The bathroom in my room had no hooks for towels and the showerhead was an overhead model but only 4 of the approximately 40 little nozzles would shoot water. As a result, the 4 nozzles were painful jetstreams. The pools... More

Hi Cade P, Thanks for staying with us! Our central location allows for a short walk, bike ride, or free shuttle ride to restaurants, wineries, hiking, and much more. Our three mineral pools do vary in temperature- warm (80-85 degrees), warmer (90-95 degrees), and hot (100-104 degrees) and are heated naturally by the hot springs year round. The pools are... More

So much is good about the place - helpful, courteous staff, rooms were clean, decor and fittings excellent, although the furniture is minimalist, there is not enough clothes storage available. Pool facilities are very good, and free wifi is really strong. The main problem, especially in our room, 302, was that we could hear the air-con unit, in the next... More

I absolutely loved staying at the Sunburst Calistoga! I was looking to relax and to enjoy a couple days away from San Francisco, and being here was just what I needed. The mineral pools and jacuzzi are absolutely exceptional, and the natural setting around the pool area is beyond beautiful. The rooms are exquisitely decorated, and the tasteful decor is... More

This is a cute retro place to stay with a lot of space. The mineral pools are a big hit. Front desk is real helpful. It is a few minutes down the road from being right in the middle of town which is nice.

I brought my cousin and her husband there because they wanted to go Napa Valley. I actually bought another time to go with my husband. As it turned out, we got there around 7pm. The hot tub closed at 10 and it took about 45 mins to figure out how it worked. No instructions and well, not great. The front... More

Although our stay was comfortable. This is a spruced up motel with retro decor. I question their rates. Calistoga is a tourist destination, but paying close to $250 a night was way too much. It should be $150.

Hadn't been to Calistoga in a long time and it can be a bit precious. The Sunburst was a refreshing exception. Down-to-earth, upbeat (all those bursts of orange and green can't help but make you cheerful), helpful staff, thoughtful amenities, and awesome pools. We came on a kid-free getaway but would come back again with our school-aged daughter. It was... More
