“Cute place, horrible bathroom”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

The room itself was nice, very retro and comfortable. the bed was nice, pillows were a little hard. But the biggest mistake this place made was not expanding the bathroom. The shower flooded the bathroom each time we used it. The shower was a rain shower, so high could not be adjusted so I had no choice other than stand next to the wall in order for the water not to come down on my head. Horrible. There was also no where to place your items, only a small glass shelf above the sink.

We enjoyed our two nights in a suite at Sunburst. We appreciated the spacious room with the sofabed for our kids. The room was bright and clean. I also like the (eco) fact that the hotel has dispensers for high quality soap, shampoo etc. instead of small bottels. The room is not very soundproof though, we could hear traffic and our neighbours quite clearly. You get breakfast coupons for a bakery in town, which is a little inconvenient if you want to stay at the hotel for a while in the morning. 

We also enjoyed the pools and the walking distance to the town centre with stores, restaurants and a laundrette. Several wineries are close by, the charming Lava Vine is a two minute walk.

I've been to the Wine Country many times. I expected the tranquility and the green scenery.

The hotel did not meet my expectations. It had
- a motel-like feel to it
- no scenery (front faced a highway, back faced non-pleasant nothingness
- pool was too chlorinated, small and never had any fresh towels. i had to ask twice to get a towel. there were not enough chairs to lay/sit on
- Jacuzzi was too weak to even feel
- breakfast was good the first night, but on night 2, we received a letter that stated that from this point forward we have to drive to downtown to a local coffee shop to get our complimentary coffee and a baked good. Not convenient

Room Tip: ask for a room that does not face highway

Stayed for 1 night on 4/26. The location is great, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms are very clean. The decor is great-cheerful...loved the colors. The bed was amazingly comfortable-slept great.
There is a Keurig machine in the room, and there is also coffee in the reception area in the morning.
Definitely take advantage of the mineral pools. They are a treat!
Agree with other reviewers that the walls are thin. Earplugs are provided in the room. However, I had no issue sleeping.
It is a great choice in the area and would definitely return.

we stayed here on our past weekend trip to Napa. this was a small drive up to room type of a hotel, the rooms were very clean and spacious. we had a king room, a small sitting area a dressing area and a nice little bathroom. the breakfast was nicely arranged and fresh. pools were clean and fresh as was the hot tub - beware it is very hot so takes time to adjust. one thing to note this is in calistoga which is at the other end so if you are dining out in yountville for instance then account for 30minute ride in each direction. stayed here 2 nights with wife and for the price definitely a good find. there is no concierge or any real on site services so hotel is probably an overstated title but for a getaway when you're touring all day this is definitely a nice place to come back to.

also note there is no restaurant on site and i accidentally selected restaurant and now cant remove the rating.

Room Tip: rooms are different and my friend had a king room as well but his bathroom and layout was different...

The Sunburst was a great place to stay. Easy walk into the town of Calistoga. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with healthy options. The warm pools were wonderful! Price was reasonable, also. Very nicely remodeled property.

Room Tip: Could ask to be near pool or office. Not a very large place.

Nice place to stay. Very clean and friendly. Would be a really nice place to stay with a family. The staff was very helpful and the general manager was extremely professional and attentive to all my needs. Would stay again.
