Location is perfect for our girls getaway. Pools are wonderful and property is very clean and comfortable. Would come back. The only drawback is noise between rooms. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Where to begin? Ok, you begin at dog friendly... then the delights continue: cool room design and decor, fantastic and friendly staff, beautiful pools, complimentary snacks and waters in room. You can walk to town, but you won't want to. A very special place -- lovingly updated and managed by a stellar team.

We loved the updated motor lodge ambiance of the Sunburst Calistoga. It's located a lovely short walk from town and from a great dining spot. The room was spotless, the decor retro 50s chic. We are "older," and we loved it, but I think it would really appeal to my daughters and theirs husbands, all in their mid-30s. We loved...

Our one night stay at the Sunburst was fantastic! I only wish that we had planned more time to visit longer. The pool s wonderful and bikes are available to ride the short distance into town (also walkable). Calistoga is a lovely small town that I will definitely have on my itinerary for a return trip to enjoy more tasting...

We were very pleasantly surprised by the very tasteful interior design of the room. We also liked the fact that soap, shampoo, lotions are in a very convenient refillable bottle instead of disposable single doses.

Dear agiuli_951267, Thank you for staying at The Sunburst. I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the interior design of the room. We hope to continue using the refillable bottles as well. The property will relaunch as "Calistoga Motor Lodge & Spa" this summer and hope that you can come back when complete with new amenities.

You would think that when doing remodeling, at some point the door to the exterior would be closed and someone would notice the 1/4" to 1/2" gaps around the door. the air conditioner needed upgrading, due to the gaps, it didn't cool off very good.

The Sunburst location and service is what's going for it. It is still a motel, though nicely designed, the noise travel easily between the rooms and the road facing rooms get traffic noise in the morning. The pool was not clean but the hot springs tab was a nice treat at the end of a day. The front desk service...

If you need a place to sleep, it's fine but not a place to spend anytime on property. Perhaps once the updates are done. A restaurant and spa are supposed to be in the works. Currently just an average mineral pool.

Dear B451CFallanc, Thank you for staying at The Sunburst Calistoga. We appreciate the feedback. Once all of the renovations are complete such as our spa and restaurants, there will be plenty to do on site as well as renovated pool area with new furniture and cabanas. We hope that you will be able to come back then.

Excellent, pleasant, great staff. Information on activities of the weekend was very good, we appreciated it. We asked for the robes and we received them, although it was not included in the price of the room.

This is a solid place to stay with nice pools and somewhat tranquil surroundings. Everything was clean and comfortable... however: 1) the jackhammering at 9am near the pool made it very difficult to find their mineral pool area relaxing. 2) the overhead rainshower in the bathroom is tiny, and without a hand-held shower-head to accompany it, it is extremely awkward...

Thank you, Matthew, for your feedback. As you noted, our guest rooms are newly renovated, yet we are soliciting feedback to fine tune them even more. Your suggestion of a handheld shower head would be a great addition. We installed sound insulation between rooms recently, but found a few areas that need more sealing. This is being addressed as I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This freshly renovated boutique hotel provides the perfect accommodations for your Napa Valley getaway. Located at the beginning of the world-famous Silverado Trail, each bright and clean retro-modern guest room offers a flat-screen TV, iHome alarm clock, compact refrigerator with minibar snacks, single-serve gourmet coffee machine, and complimentary Wi-Fi. After a leisurely bike ride to one of the dozens of nearby vineyards, soak up the sun and relax in our three on-site hot spring mineral water pools, perhaps with a glass of wine from one of the bottles you purchased along during the day. For breakfast, feel like a local at the Calistoga Roastery (best breakfast sandwiches in town) with an espresso across the street at El Ray. As the sun climbs high, hike or bike the adjacent Oat Hill Mine Trail where breathtaking views of the Valley are around every corner. Then, pamper yourself at one of Calistoga's numerous renowned spas where mud-baths have been the norm for 100 years. Later in the day sip Napa Valley's famous wine in our backyard or at any of the local wineries in town - most are easily within walking distance or via Calistoga's growing bike path. Most guests simply love the scenic 8-minute stroll into the heart of town where you can enjoy restaurants, shopping, local museums, art galleries, and more. And at any time of day, visit the lobby for freshly brewed coffee or tea and recommendations from our knowledgeable hosts that will make your experience a memorable one. The hotel is located just 40 scenic minutes north of the City of Napa and 75 scenic miles from San Francisco. ... more   less
