I started going here with my first wife back in the '80s. We loved the communal kitchen, the kerosene lanterns, the clothing optional baths & pool. Alas, we moved away from northern California in the late '80s. I introduced Wilbur to my second wife in 2013 - August. The kerosene lamps were gone, replaced by solar powered lights. It is... More

We were apprehensive to visit Wilbur after the fire, having enjoyed it many times in the past and not believing it could recover from the devastation to deliver the same magnificent experience as before. To our relief and intense pleasure, Wilbur is as good if not better than ever. The waters were untouched by the fire and retain their serene,... More

I had business in Upper Lake (live in Sonoma County), so on the way back I stopped for the day at WHS. Boy, it's a drive to get there, including the last 4-5 miles on a very narrow dirt/gravel road (though the scenery is beautiful). I didn't see much of the buildings, but the staff seemed helpful and nice, and... More

So terribly sad to have to say goodbye to WHS, a place I've been enjoying since the late 1990's. They've just priced themselves out of my interest-zone. My visit last fall revealed the rebuild of the first floor of the magnificent hotel; the top 2 floors were lost to a fire in July. At that time the accommodations were in... More

Dear Ruby, Thank you for your review. You are correct in that, like most everything else, our prices have inched up over the years in order to keep pace with rising costs and we are sorry that you feel that our prices have risen to the point that you no longer feel comfortable with them. However there are several misstatements... More

As any traveler knows, excellent service can compensate for a lot. However, poor to negligible service makes even the best accommodations feel like a dump. Given the fact that the hotel was recently burned down, WHS has an opportunity to improve upon it's outdated and shabby structure, but it is doubtful that even with a new hotel, anything of substance...

First let me say I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wilbur Hot Springs. It is probably the most relaxing place I have ever been in my life. I have to say though that this may not be the place for everyone. You really need to be a minimalist to get the full enjoyment. They are completely off the grid. No... More

Realy nice place to stay and relax. Great pools with sulfur hot water. Rooms in old fashion style like wood cabins. Common bathroom. Big full kited kitchet where you cook for yourself. Very far from the city noise. Big space around, so you can get lost and nobody will dustube you.

Love love love this place. We had a girl night out there, it became the most memorable place of all of us. The spring is fantastic. Most visitors chose to stay naked, but it is OK wearing swimming wear. They have 3 pools with different temperature. Outside there is a swimming pool with lower temperature. People can talk in the...

This time I came with the wife and she was delighted with the quiet. Even though she got lost on a hike in the 1700 acre nature preserve overall the trip was everything she was hoping for. We cooked most of our meals at home and brought it in coolers for easy re-heating. They use solar lighting, and propane stoves... More

While we understand that there are many people out there who absolutely love Wilbur, we would give it a pass for our taste in travel. It is basically roughing it at $240 per night (for a private room)! We usually try to fly with only carry-on luggage if at all possible. Wilbur does not seem to cater to anyone flying... More
