“Keeps getting better and better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

My wife and I came back again this year after positive experience last summer. The facility is top notch in all aspects. Family friendly yet nice for couples. Great pools to relax in and the room was upgraded and spotless. The Napa valley is spendy so the price is what it is. All things concise red worth the money. Calistoga is a quaint town with nice restaurants. More down to earth then other areas in Napa Valley. We'll be back... For the STAR rating it gets an excellent from us.

I've been twice: once just for the mineral pools for the day, and recently for an overnight stay. The four pools are pleasant: one large one at 80 degrees, two smaller at around 100 degrees, and a small wading/kiddie pool at 90. The massages my friends and I got were fine but nothing to write home about, and the spa area is rather out of date and a little cramped and worn.
Our room was large and comfortable, but had a bit of an odd, musty smell, worn carpeting and a tiny, very dated kitchenette area. For $300 it seemed quite overpriced, especially given that there is no landscaping in front of the hotel just a large parking lot and the backs of some main street businesses, and the staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. Overall, kind of like a motel with a mineral springs spa, and since rooms don't get you a discount on spa services , it seems a bit steep.

Green Features: The only environmentally friendly practice I noticed was a sign asking us to only use towels that we needed....

Our neighbors above us were incredibly noisy with every footstep, move of furniture, and drop of objects, coming through loud and clear into our room. Annoying to say the least!!

Also, they request that visitors wash their own dishes without awareness of contamination issues with the public and charging $267 for the room in addition!!

We've been coming to Calistoga for several years and have stayed at the Indian Springs, because we'd heard about it from friends. It finally got too expensive for us, so we sought out other alternatives. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Calistoga Spa and Hot Springs. It's different from Indian Springs: friendlier, less of a conspicuous "luxury" feel, a little less hushed, and lot more down to earth. All that was good for us. It is true that the architectural structure is that of a motel, but they've done a very successful renovation. The rooms are spotless and updated, with very comfortable beds and linens. There are kitchenettes and grills outside for those who want to cook there (many did). We enjoy the restaurants in Calistoga, and the hotel is within a block or two of everything. There are four pools - including one that you can swim laps in, and several hot pools. There's also plenty of seating in sun and shade (we enjoyed the lounges on a kind of balcony overlooking the pools). The staff is friendly and helpful. I didn't use the spa services, so can't comment on that. The workout room, which is well equipped and spacious, closes early (9:30 pm); it would be great if it were available longer. It was a truly pleasant two days - we wish we'd been able to stay longer. We'll be happy to make the Calistoga Spa and Hot Springs our go-to place in Calistoga!

Room Tip: The only downside to our stay was that our first floor room was immediately opposite the grill area...

A great place to stay for a family holiday. The pool area is outstanding, with 4 mineral pools, each one catering for a specific use.. The rooms are ok, kitchenettes are well stocked, clean, and practical. There is a downside for ground floor rooms - you get a lot of floor noise from the rooms above. The Spa treatment was a disappointment. Spa staff were very impersonal. Didn't communicate very well, in fact, hardly at all. They appeared to want to talk to each other, rather than the customer. Not a good atmosphere, for a very personal service.
No food service of ant kind on the property, but supply BBQ areas for families to cook and eat, which is useful. Plenty of restuarants on the hotel doorstep.
Would stay here again, but look for Spa treatment elsewhere.

Room Tip: If your a light sleeper, try to avoid ground floor rooms.

We were looking for a getaway with mineral springs to soak in, nice places to recline and a mini fridge to store our wine and snacks. We were extremely happy with the Calistoga Spa Hot Springs, and I personally was impressed with the versatility for couples and families. Although we were looking for a place that would suit us traveling as a couple, the fact that there was a special kid pool and outdoor barbecues on the ground floor makes this place a great idea for families in the future.

The covered adult hot tub was great to relax in, and the proximity to the downtown area of Calistoga was great for a short stroll and a meal. A couple of things we really loved were the great proximity to the local grocery store and the fully apportioned mini kitchen.

Check in and out was fine, and the spa area with mud bath definitely gives off a dated "Grand Budapest Hotel" vibe, but the staff and mud were lovely. They were able to accommodate our last minute scheduling quite well, and we will definitely return.

I dropped by Indian Springs while wandering around Calistoga- from what I can see the Calistoga mini suites definitely offer better value over the Indian Springs bungalows.

Room Tip: There is a definite kid friendly area and an adult friendly (quieter) area. Consult the reservation...

Green Features: Liked the recycling bins and at this point I consider the "hang your towel to not wash it" standard. Did not notice other environmentally friendly practices.

We spent two nights at the Calistoga Spa Hot Springs. The rooms were a little dated, but everything was neat and clean. No free breakfast, but we had a small kitchenette so we made our own breakfast. The mud bath and massage (the works they call it) was very good, but they have separate areas for men and women. So my wife and I enjoyed it separately. Easy walk to many nice restaurants in town. With all the problems in the Crimea, it seemed that the Russians were coming here for their spa time. Everyone was pleasant.

Hello BeachHunterR, thank you for your honest and to the point review. We have a few rooms left to fully renovate and those will be completed in Q1 of 2015. Your comment on our Russian guests is amusing. We hope you get to visit again and stay in one of the fully renovated rooms. Mike Lennon - GM
