A CA trip of NAPA with my daughter started at Dr. Wilkinson's Hot Springs Resort. We wanted a spa with our accomodations and something affordable. We also wanted to start in Calistoga and end up in Yountville. The rooms were very comfortable, quiet and like being transported back in time. In the evening we were able to walk through the...

ChefCraigoSF, Thank you for the review. Apologies for the disturbance by housekeeping! Most of our guests enjoy our pools, of which we have three. Your comments are well taken and appreciated. We've been family owned and operated since 1952 ( aged?) and our buildings are frequently admired for the true, mid-century modern look that we have preserved. Thank you for... More

The hotel has been upgraded in terms of decor. Beds are very comfortable. Spa services are great and affordable. Nice places to eat within walking distance. Perfect stress relief or a one night stay. This is a very pretty area and an easy drive from SF or Oakland.

Dr. Wilkinson's fits in with the whole retro vibe of the entire town. Calistoga has a very 1950's feel, and the hotel does as well. The hotel is located towards the end of the main street in town, so it's easy to walk into downtown for dinner or shopping. Everything is immaculate; the staff are incredibly helpful. There are 3...

I've never had a mud bath experience, but decided that once in my life, since I'm in Calistoga, I had to try it. Dr. Wilkinson's looked so established and so tempting, with their cool looking vintage signs, that I took the leap. I'm so glad I did. Everything was perfect, I was ushered right in and Dulce explained everything in... More

I have been coming to Dr. Wilkinson's since the early 1980s--to stay, to have mud baths, and to relax. For many years, Dr. Wilkinson himself would greet his guests personally, always a treat, and now Mark and his sister carry on the same welcoming traditions. It's a homey place, with tender care to all details, from the grounds to the... More
