“Fountain of Youth”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Staying at Dr. Wilkinson's is like getting a new lease on life. I've visited this spa for years because they make me feel like a queen!!! I'm so excited when I turn onto Lincoln Ave. that I get downright giddy!!! Everyone is so nice and accommodating. They always remember me no matter how long it's been since my last trip. Not only do they remember me, they remember the location in the hotel that I like most! You're soooooooooo pampered in the spa by everyone there as well. Get "the Works" if you want to getaway for regal treatment, If you want to feel like a monarch, then. . . THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU! I wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Calistoga!! It's THE BEST!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are good here. The layout of the hotel is such that every room is convenient to both...

We've been coming to Dr. Wilkinson's once or twice a year now for 4 or 5 years. Clean, uncluttered rooms, helpful housekeeping and front desk staff, wonderful pools & spa, a short walk to decent restaurants in a small town still isn't tarnished by too many "tourist" items. A must stop for meat eaters is Buster's BBQ. Nothing syrupy or pretentious here; it's the real thing.

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet.

I have stayed at Dr Wilkinson's Hot Springs Resort for years. From the time you enter the parking lot until you leave the parking lot you are pampered and made to feel like family. Convenient location, immaculate grounds, spa treatments are superb, awesome staff. Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

My partner and I were looking for a getaway. This place did it all. Easy check-in without the Napa Valley attitude was great. Our room was immaculate....king bed, nice fabric and pillows and robes. There are 3 pools that are close to the rooms and very peaceful. No pool scene just relaxed. We did the works mud bath with a great massage. This place is so different and authentic old school. Great massages! We both were so relaxed that we barely made it down the street for dinner. We both had the best sleep and woke up and asked for a late check out....the staff was awesome and gave us until 1:00PM. Not sure this always happens but it worked for us! It was nice to have more time for a swim and sun!

In all, a very special place. I have been to many five star places. The "Doc" and family and staff are the best. The only place to stay and relax in Napa.

I went to Travis AFB CA to visit with my Son & Daughter n Law & to meet my new baby Grand Daughter !! .. I was there for nearly a month & I enjoyed everyday that I was there .. I wanted to do something very special for my Daughter n Law & what better way to say I love you !! ..
We looked up Spa's on the internet & came across Dr. Wilkinson's Spa in Calistoga which is only an hour drive away so we called & got the info & booked our Spa Day !! .. We arrived on April 6, 2013 .. The Front Desk Personnel Miss Peresita greeted us & explained everything that we were going to have done with the package price we chose , which was the Works !! .. We each had the Mud Bath .. The Mineral Bath .. The Steam Room & Blanket Wrap & our Massage was last !! .. Each was a wonderful experiance & I have to say Miss Marsha was " OUTSTANDING " with the Massage that she gave to me !! .. All the Woman Attendants were very respectable with telling us what to do & answering all our questions .. they made us feel so welcome & right at home !! .. Everything was very clean & relaxing .. We had the greatest time ever & last but least .. Feeling like a new woman when we walked out of there !! .. We had a good walk along the Town & had a wonderful lunch at BRANNAN'S !! .. Napa Valley is so beautiful & a must see to experiance it all !! .. My trip was complete !! .. I'm back home in NC now however I am so looking forward to visiting again in the Fall & this time I will be bringing my Hubby so we can have a Spa Day together at Dr. Wilkinson's Spa !! .. Thank You all for making our day a relaxing one !! Johanna Reschke xo-xo

This place was completely dated but charming. At this point, it's retro, but I don't think they designed it for retro, it just hasn't changed since the '60s. The sink area was gold and it had a small tube tv. My friend and I did mud baths and it was a fun experience. We went off-season and got a good deal on a room and mud bath combo, so check their website for similar specials if you go at the right time. The mud bath included the actual mud bath (which smelled horribly and felt weird but was somehow relaxing and fun), a steam, and a bubbling mineral bath, followed by what I considered nap time in a relaxing room while wrapped in blankets. I'd recommend doing it with someone rather than alone, as half the fun is in laughing about it and talking about how creepy fun it is.
