“Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Golden Haven is a few blocks away from downtown Calistoga. It's a converted motel with recently updated rooms. Our large room had a king bed, a separate room with a queen bed, plus large dressing area. There was a small fridge, sink and microwave. Clean, OK bed, quiet.

The spa services are great. Our first mud bath -- very relaxing! -- which included time in a private hot springs tub followed by a blanket wrap.

Calistoga is a nice town with plenty of shopping and wine tasting. Many, many wineries within 5-20 minutes; many of them offer discounts or free tastings to Golden Haven guests.

Hotspring in your hotel room. King size bed just steps away from your own private tub. Go to web site for best deals. Good massage available too but a little over priced as are most things in Calistoga. There is good food available down the street. A cool little store called "the man store" has lots of cool stuff. Not really just for men but does excite the man in us men.

Room Tip: Jacuzzi rooms are the rooms with own hot spring tub in your room

Planned a trip to wine country but wanted something more. Saw Golden Haven Spa on Trip Advisor and said:" Mudbath? Why not?" Fantastic experience. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. "Marta" was very friendly and helpful. What an experience, relaxation personified. We were traveling with another couple who also did the mudbath and the consensus was that it was a true relaxing experience. Could have stayed in the mediation room forever - truly relaxing after the mudbath, shower, and jacuzzi. Even had my first massage - what a great treat. We did the couples special and found it to be a great value and are recommending it to all our friends. Will do the mudbath at Golden Haven on our next wine country trip.

what a lovely and relaxing place! We have been to Calistoga before, but had never stayed at Golden Haven Hot Springs. We took advantage of their couples package, enjoying mud baths, mineral jacuzzis, blanket wraps, and massages all within reach of my beautiful wife. The massage wasa borderline out-of-body experience for me and put me something resembling an alpha-state. No fooling! The rooms at Golden Haven, while not fancy or pretentious, were very comfortable. The beds were new, our room had a fridge and microwave, and it opened through French doors onto the courtyard/drive where we had a small table and chairs if we chose to sit and eat outdoors. This place is located several blocks back off the main drag in a quiet residential neighborhood of older homes and similar spa-related businesses. The staff was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed walking in to town for morning coffee and dinner. Although we aren't wine afficionados and don't drink, we still found plenty of fun thinks to do with our time. We enjoyed ourselves so much we extended our stay here by an extra day! We will definitely go back.

This place is perfect! My mother and I scheduled a last minute girls weekend to escape. We spent the afternoon in the spa and then stayed the night on the property. The customer service from check in to check out was excellent. Our spa experience was wonderful, we were treated as though we were the only clients there and they were booked. I had read other reviews that it was old and outdated and I have to disagree. Although the property is seasoned, it was not at all run down. The room was up to date, very clean and a great value. Make sure you enjoy the patio seating area and fireplace!

I booked a last minute solo get away at Golden Haven and was pleasantly surprised. They seemed to be one of the only resorts in Calistoga that had any kind of deal for a solo traveler. The other resorts were basing all their pricing on double occupancy. I booked a mud bath/blanket wrap followed by a one hour massage and one hour facial. Everything was wonderful. Lewis was my massage therapist and he was really excellent. The room, while not new, was comfortable with an updated bathroom. Overall, I was very pleased with my choice and would return.

Great place very down to earth clean spa. My husband and I did the couples mud bath and massages for our honeymoon. Great affordable prices and super nice people. If you're into the hometown feeling and love local spots this is your place. I will definitely visit this spa often!
