This is not a place that I would ever stay again and I am a frequent visitor to Calistoga. The "Sage" room I was in was smaller than the rooms I've stayed in at Indian Springs, the Comfort Inn, Calistoga Day Spa, and Wilkinson's. The sheets were old, the mattress uncomfortable, and the space heater didn't heat the room at all. The so-called down comforter was thin and the blankets were cotton. I didn't expect to be cold at night. I had to get up and put on a sweater and heavy robe so I could warm up. I agree with another reviewer that it's noisy at night because this inn is so close to the traffic on Lincoln Ave. The towels in the bathroom were scratchy. It takes a while to get hot water and I felt bad about wasting all that water. Calistoga is noted for its spring water but there was complimentary distilled water in the refrigerator. At Indian Springs, the complimentary water is spring water.
As a host, Doug was not friendly to me. He didn't point out that there are cookies available and port wine on the side board for guests. Perhaps it's because I'm "ethnic" or because I'm a single woman that he was so hostile. If business is bad, I can see why.
I agree with another reviewer that the breakfast was awful. On my second morning three, I was given the left over "hot" breakfast entree from two days before. I found myself longing for the fresh bagels and hot scrambled eggs served at the Comfort Inn. I would recommend staying at Indian Springs and walking two blocks downtown to have a very nice breakfast instead of staying at the Brannan Cottage Inn Bed and Breakfast.
