“A comfortable place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Carlin is a couple of blocks off the main drag in Calistoga. It has a small number of rooms. It's an older building, but well maintained, and very clean. It has a pool and hot tub heated by spring water. When we were there, it was very quiet, and we had the hot tub to ourselves. I recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 8 was quiet.

What a Great Surprise. This great little hotel has rooms with deep soaking tubs and mineral water piped right into the room. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. Nicely priced. We will definately be back and definately recommend the property. It's not hoity toity so if thats what your looking for ...don't stay here! If you want comfortable, clean, fun, priced right, and super nice people this is the place for you!!!

Room Tip: They have updated all the rooms with new windows, air conditioners and my husband said roof. I didn...

Got a mini suite with a full kitchen and pull out couch. Clean room. Gas grills were available to use, as well as a pool and hot tub. Great value, especially when you can use the kitchen or grills to save a bit on meal. Will definitely stay again.

The opportunity to stay in a retro one bedroom cottage made us feel like we were thrown back into the 30's, and we imagined what life was like in the old days when these cottages were built and were residences. The cottage was spottless and spacious with a full kitchen, living room and bedroom...even a front and back porch! We would much prefer to stay here, which afforded plently of space instead of a conventional hotel room!! (And at a very affordable price). Gas barbeques and patio tables are available, and a very clean pool. Don't be put off by the old motorcourt appearance and the clientele that usually inhabit them...these cottages are for the wine country tourists! Places like this will not be around forever...do yourself a favor and experience it...you won't be sorry.

Room Tip: We stayed in #9 which was in the back and very quiet, and were able to park our car just outside our...

Nice cottages and friendly staff in this Irish getaway. Pool ans especially the hot tube were very nice and relaxing.
10 minutes walk to the centre of Calistoga, with a few nice restaurants and shops.
Friendly green town

Every winter my boyfriend and I head up to Carlin Cottages for our hot springs getaway. We rent one of the jacuzzi rooms. It is always such a nice midwinter treat. The rooms are spotless, the jacuzzi is huge. The water comes right out of the earth into your room. We find it so relaxing to have the hot tub right in our room. We love our annual Carlin trip.

Room Tip: The jacuzzi rooms are what it is all about

We recently stayed at Carlin Cottages and were very happy with the accommodations. We stayed in two different rooms and both were clean and nice. The mini suite has a very large kitchen. The hot springs pools were lovely, but should be open earlier and later in the day. The staff was friendly and helpful. The in room jacuzzi was deep and lovely but could only be used once in a 24 stay, not enough water for an evening and a morning soak.

Plenty of parking and a short walk to the center of town. We would stay there again!
