My GF and I booked here off-season for a Sunday night, so it was actually affordable on a grad student budget. The building is very historic (but the resort is well maintained), romantic, and you feel like you're on Titanic. The room was very nice, bed quite comfy, and the spa services top notch. The private baths with the therapeutic mud (not full mud, just sprinkles in the water LOL) were great.

We've wanted to come back ever since but it's just so pricey vs. other Napa options. But for special occasions, I think it's worth it. Good location with short walk to restaurants and shopping.

We visited the hotel and thankfully it was just the one night.
We had an extremely small and tasteless room, unfortunately we cannot remember the room number.
There was a window which gave us no light and looked onto an inside view of a different part of the hotel.
We were told there was a complimentary continental breakfast and it would be delivered to the room and we had to give a time for delivery there and then when booking in.
When the breakfast came it consisted of orange juice and coffee, one large iced doughnut and one very small iced scone and a piece of fruit. The scone and doughnut were unpleasant.
When delivered the lady did not know where to put the tray, there was no room to put it down even.
Yes, we should have asked to see another room but we were tired and we thankfully were staying just the one night and decided not to make a fuss.
It is classed as a spa hotel ,but, the first impression of the spa was not good as their reception was just a small desk in the main reception ( the reception not being very impressive either) with someone behind the desk looking very bored. We were given a credit for the spa but, looking at the high cost of treatments, and the spa not looking very enticing, that was something we decided to give a miss.
All in all our experience at Mount View were extremely dissapointing and we paid a lot of money, far more than what we had expected to, but, in fairness that appeared to be the going rate in Calistoga.
We were pleased we stayed in Calistoga, however, if you choose to stay at Mount View I recommend you take a look at the room and decide if it is acceptable before unpacking.

Room Tip: Check out the room and tell them if you are unhappy with the one allocated, they are expensive so sp...

Hello Hurtspark,

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. Being the historic downtown Hotel that we are, we do have limitations on our room size and views. We do market ourselves as a small boutique hotel and this is truly what we are. All of our guestrooms are slightly different in layout and square footage which makes it hard to generalize our rooms. This is why we have gone the route of making each room individual and giving our guests options to best accommodate what you are looking for. Including fresh pastries from a local bakery, fruit, orange juice, coffee & tea, is an added amenity that we hope brings light to your morning, while not trying to compete with the dozen of restaurants on main street that offer a full breakfast menu.

In order to best accommodate all inquiries, we have a mixture of bed types in our guestrooms and suites, and offer private cottages as well. For the more extravagant in decor and space, our Suites and Cottages would be my recommendation. Our Guestrooms are smaller rooms and are calmer in décor, but still attractive and fun.

In addition to creating a unique experience in each room, we have also done the same for the Spa. I wished you would have tried the Spa, as our Spa should not be judged upon the look of the lobby. Once you step into our Spa you feel as if you have stepped into a different world with soothing colors and aromas; a variety of treatments all with relaxation.

I am very happy to hear that over all you enjoyed the town of Calistoga. It is a great, welcoming, town to enjoy and hopefully you will consider re-visiting us on a future visit and trying a different room type or trying the Spa.

We were 4 friends who stayed in twin rooms at the hotel. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms huge. Lots of character. The reception staff couldn't have been more helpful, they made dinner reservations for us and recommended local attractions, e.g. the mud baths. The outdoor pool is heated and there is a hot tub too. Everything was so clean and well maintained. Breakfast was included and delivered to our rooms. It was a real treat to have breakfast in bed! It was delivered on time (even with our last minute request to have it earlier than originally planned) and was delicious. The hoptel has a great location right on the main high street of Calistoga. The only think I would say is that the spa treatments are very expensive, but you do get a discount voucher as a hotel guest.Overall, this was a wonderful hotel and I would heartily recommend it!

Note the name is Mount View, not Mountain, and there is a wonderful story and history here! One of the longest running hotels in the Napa Valley, you would never know it due to the beautifully renovated - well, everything! The street front does not tell the whole story, park and enter the lobby, check out the reception area and magnificent pool. The staff is extra helpful and attentive and the rooms beautiful and luxurious, We stayed in one of the Winery Suites so can't speak to the usual Guestroom appointments but I imagine they are no less perfect, probably just less room (the suites are 2 room). Top it off with breakfast in bed, heavenly! There are so many choices in the Napa Valley, I am glad we came across Mount View and indeed to go back again soon!

Room Tip: there is no elevator so note this if you have lots of luggage, small children etc. the lobby staff i...

For the cost, we really did not have a very good experience here. There were hairs in the bathroom (which we left unmentioned), and the night-staff was actually pretty unfriendly. I asked about the hours of the pool and was given a short answer by someone who didn't even look up from their magazine. Maybe that's what you'd expect in a motel, but not here. The parking lot was always full as well, leaving us to circle around several times looking for a spot. It was also loud by the pool; definitely not the "art of relaxation".
If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing time with a staff that takes care of the little things, this is not it.

Hello buddyAholly,

I am very sorry to hear you did not enjoy your time with us at the Mount View Hotel & Spa. The Art of Relaxation is definitely what strive for along with excellent customer service to all guests at all times. We pride ourselves on having some of the friendliest and most accommodating staffs in town, and I am sorry this was not your experience.

Though we are unable to control the volume by the pool, we do try to promote a relaxing environment and we do address noise issues when we find them disruptive to our guests.

We do inspect all rooms prior to each arrival to ensure that the rooms are thoroughly cleaned and fully stocked with all of our amenities.

I would be interested in hearing from you personally as to which room you stayed in and when. If you are able to, please contact me directly at hotelmgr@mountviewhotel.com so that I may follow up on your concerns to ensure this will never be an experience at our hotel again.

I hope in the future you decide to try us again and I do apologies for your experience not being up to our standards.

We just got back from a 2 night stay at the Mount View Hotel. We left very relaxed and satisfied with our stay. We stayed in a standard queen bed on the first floor with our windows overlooking the path to the pool. Although I've certainly stayed in nicer hotels, the prices in the Napa Valley can go sky high and I was certainly happy with this price point for the room that we received; I would give it a rating of 4 1/2 if I could. The decor was that fitting a boutique hotel and the location in the middle of downtown Calistoga was awesome. We loved getting coffee and pastries delivered to our room in the morning and enjoyed laying out by the pool in the afternoon. If you get a chance go to JoLe, the restaurant in the front of the hotel, we both did the tasting menus for dinner and weren't disappointed! Overall, a great experience and we plan to choose it again for future trips!

I stayed here on a little girl's getaway trip a few weeks ago. The front desk staff rocks! They were all super knowledgeable about the area, very friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. Our room was fine, nothing to write home about - the bed was really hard though. If you like hard beds, this place is for you. The pool is great, we spent most of our time out here lazying around. They make it really comfortable with shaded cabanas all around. We did the couple's hydrotherapy mud bath and neither of us were too impressed. We expected some pig-slinging mud, but really were just in what appeared to be dirty water in a small, jetted bathtub. Maybe that was just our misguided expectations though. Overall, the hotel and the staff made for a fanstastic weekend experience that I'd highly recommend.

Hello Marina,

Thank you for your review. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and I am happy to hear that is what you experienced. Our staff, in all departments, believes in making your visit to the Mount View Hotel & Spa, truly one to remember!

The Mount View Spa offers an array of signature treatments to choose from including our Hydrotherapy Baths (Balneotherapy) with the choice of Mud or Mineral (lavender, rosemary or lemon). I am sorry that our Mud bath was not described to you as our Hydrotherapy Mud bath. We do not have the "Pig-Slinging" mud as you were hoping for, but we are happy to recommend our neighbors for that. Our Hydrotherapy is meant to relax your muscles and increase your circulation; the Mud is then added into a freshly drawn water bath to pull toxins from the body and replenish your skin with minerals and vitamins. With this signature treatment, you get the added benefit of it being a freshly drawn bath, and you get to enjoy it in a private room with lavender Steam Sauna.

Thank you for the wonderful comments about our Backyard and Pool. We call that our hidden Gem as it is a delightful surprise when you walk through our garden pathway. Most guests do not expect it to be there.

Thank you again for your review and we hope we are able to have you as our guest on your next trip to Calistoga! Please feel free to contact our desk 24/7 for more great service and referrals.

Cheers!
