I received a very pleasant welcome at the front desk, where a 3.5 out of 5 star rating sign is proudly displayed. He asked if we were staying for one night. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!. I can barely stop laughing. I wanted one night (Saturday), but every place I checked, including this one, has a two night minimum, and... More

I recently stayed at Carlin Cottages and had a fantastic time! The room was very clean, the property was well kept, making me feel very much At home! As a promptly manager of 90 condominium units, I can honestly say the manager there cares a great deal for the property and the guests. The pool was great, the atmosphere relaxing... More

The challenge here is one of value. This place would be just fine at 89 a night. For over 200 it is disappointing. Given the scarcity of rooms in Napa I am sure guests will continue to reserve here. But unless efforts are made to meet the guest expectations the bad reviews will persist. Overall, the place is clean and... More

The website is deceptive. Although the room was clean, it was very dated. the shower pressure was quite low. The parking was assigned. When I booked the room I asked if I could be in a room which would be vey accessible. When I arrived, my comments were dismissed by the female manager. The office does not open until 9:00am....

While this property is older, it is "up and coming" in my opinion. My room had a jacuzzi with mineral water that was nice and private. However, mineral water has a smell and it would be good for folks to know that before they turn it on. The bed was fairly comfortable and firm. I enjoyed overlooking the pool that... More

I have stayed twice here and always had a pleasant experience. The two stays were under old and new management. I have worked in hospitality and retail and have developed respect for people working in these industries. The staff were friendly, helpful and even went the extra mile when we forgot one of our bottles of wine in the fridge.... More

My daughter and I stayed just one night over Memorial Weekend. We booked Carlin Cottages because it was the only place we could find that allowed just one night. When we checked in, the young lady at the desk could not find the keys to our room and lamented that the previous occupants might have taken them. She had our... More

Our family has been staying at Carlin Cottages for eight years during various times of the year. Since the establishment changed owners last year this place has been going downhill. We were greatly dis-appointed that the spa and pool were very cold and one night staff didn’t even put the covers on. The next morning the water was so cold... More

Great little gem for a weekday or weekend getaway. The rooms are nice and the pool and Jacuzzi are with the Calistoga warm mineral water. The staff was so kind to all our needs and the grounds were so well landscaped. We look forward to returning here to another getaway soon. Bonus: Check out the rooms with a full kitchen... More
