“A little bit of Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Just came back from three glorious days in this little corner of paradise. I love the flowers everywhere and the design of the pools and sitting areas. All of the staff were friendly and responsive. Other guests were quiet and considerate. The pools were clean, well maintained and just the right temperature. Can't wait to return.

Linda,
Thank you for your kind words. I'm happy to hear you were able to spend 3 days, that amount of time really provides the relaxation and de-stressing so many of us need. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

My mother & I searched the Internet for a great place to stay for the birthday. Roman Spa Hot Springs Report looked nice. ....Well it was everything stated and MORE....., VERY clean, large rooms, beautiful grounds, and very friendly staff. We haven't slept as good as we did here, in a looong time. We purchased their wonderful pillows before leaving. The Mud Bath at the spa was spectacular, and the assistants were very friendly. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place, and can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: We loved room 107

Kim,
We're so happy that you chose us as the getaway to celebrate your birthday. We are also delighted that we exceeded your expectations. We strive to provide a relaxing, enjoyable experience for each guest. We are also glad to hear you enjoyed our pillows, they are very well received by many of our guests (they sell so quickly we have trouble keeping them in stock). We wish you a good night sleep with your new pillows and look forward to serving you again in the very near future.

Roman Spa Hot Springs Resort offered a loud, obnoxious group to all who were seeking relaxation. It is impossible to have staff intervene. They offered ear plugs!!!!!! Unless you are looking for a place to take your buddies and get drunk and loud, stay away from this fraudulent pit.

It’s always sad to hear that a guest of ours was unhappy with their stay, and I apologize for the dissatisfaction you experienced. I spoke with staff related to your complaint and feel it is important to share a few points about our resort. Our mission is to provide an authentic geothermal experience that promotes relaxation as well as a destination for friends and family to connect and enjoy each other. When your complaint was received in the early afternoon, 2 staff members independently went over to the area by your room to speak with the offending group. Both staff members stated that a group of middle-aged women were sitting at a patio table, eating snacks (not consuming alcohol), talking and laughing, however, not at a level that was considered disruptive or excessively loud. Staff felt that since the hour was 4 pm and the noise level was quite acceptable, there was no need to ask the group to quiet down. When you came to the office stating the noise level was still too loud and your elderly parents needed a nap, the office staff member offered ear plugs. The Roman Spa does monitor noise levels and is extremely sensitive to noise after 10 pm, during the day we do not permit excessively loud, obnoxious behavior; however, we are not a resort that demands ultimate quiet with voices at a whisper. Typically, on weekends and holidays we tend to have more groups of friends/family joining us. Perhaps midweek in the off-season would better suit your parents need for extreme quiet during the mid-day. Once again I apologize that your stay and that of your parents did not meet your expectations during this visit.

THE ROMAN SPA in Calistoga, Ca. offers a romantic, relaxing getaway in Napa Valley's wine country.
Large, clean, comfortable well-appointed rooms at reasonable rates surround a large thermal pool in a beautiful garden setting. Two therapeutic pools and saunas are just a step away.
The ROMAN SPA offers mud baths and massages and the helpful staff gives tips on restaurants and shops on Calistoga's main street, just a block from the resort.
Across the street is a fascinating museum with Disney's Oscars and historical displays. Nearby are premium wineries, a state park and a faithful geyser.
We return every year to the ROMAN SPA after the holidays and brought Seattle friends this January. They were delighted and want to come back next year.

Room Tip: We like ones by the pools on the first floor so we can grab our towels and head for the warm spas.

Violet Joy,
Thank you for your very kind comments. It is a pleasure to hear when guests return year after year and introduce friends to our resort. Calistoga indeed has so much to offer, I'm glad you mentioned the Sharpstein Museum, it is a wonderful jewel in our town with new exhibits rotating continuously (I just heard yesterday that the Travel Channel shot a short segment at the museum for their Mysteries at the Museum program. They were interested in a black kettle that was used by some members of the Donner Party.)
We look forward to seeing you again next year after the holidays and your friends from Seattle too!

We just spent a day and night at the Roman Spa Hot Springs Resort and despite the current construction, the stay was wonderful and restful. The natural hot springs waters at various temperatures from 95 to 104 degrees were very soothing. In addition, to the hot springs waters, there were jacuzzi jets that made the waters invigorating. Inside the large room that houses the 100 degree pool, there were saunas for men and women. My only wish is that the pools were open for longer hours (beyond the 8AM to 10PM time period), but that was only a minor issue, and did not impact our enjoyment of the facilities. My wife and I received massages in the Spa and the massage therapists were very thorough and considerate of our needs.

The hotel room was clean and the king size bed was very comfortable. We appreciated having free wireless internet and a fairly large choice of cable TV stations. The hotel staff was friendly and helped us get a 10% discount at one of the local restaurants, Barolo's. The half chicken in wine sauce was delicious. We are looking forward to returning for another visit to the hotel and spa soon,

Room Tip: Rooms near the front office during the construction would be better to avoid the daytime constructio...

Richard,
Thank you for your wonderful comments. I am so glad you enjoyed our natural geothermal pools and the jets on the 2 pools, indeed they are both soothing and invigorating as well as provide a wonderful warming to the body which many people love to do in the evening prior to bed. I'm also happy to hear you were pleased with your massages, next time you may want to consider a mud bath prior to your massage for the ultimate experience since your muscles will be perfectly primed for an excellent massage.
Your comments about our rooms, amenities, and friendly staff are always a pleasure to hear about, we strive to provide those "extras" that make us a very special place in the eyes of so many of our guests. We look forward to serving you again soon.

I have been all over Calistoga to spas and hotels, and I was pleasantly suprised by this great spot! I have found that all of the spas with the natural hot spring waters are all about the same as far as spa and treatments, although they vary in price greatly. In my opinion, the highlights of this location are, hot pool, hot tub, and roman spa/jaccuzzi inside, as well as mens and womens nice sized fit about 6 people dry saunas, all of which comes free with your rooms, and they are open until 10:00pm! The spa has great mud and hydro tubs with 2 feet of bubbles(the others have small regular tubs with these wierd bubblers under your but,no good), they leave you alone to get in and out of tubs so much more privacy, yet still very attentive and check on you frequently. The massage rooms are private and quite with wonderful massage therapists. The prices are reasonable, the location is right in the center of town one block off so easy to walk everywhere, which is nice if you are consuming any local wines! The rooms are nice and clean, not fancy. I prefer a good price and great spa over stylish rooms and hype. If you are looking for something more luxury you will be paying the minimum of $400 a nite at the very few 5 star places in town. This spa is the best place in town in my opinion don't waste your money at the others.

My husband and I just returned from another glorious January trip to this charming hotel and we are, once again, simply delighted with the entire experience! We arrived early for our scheduled massages, went to lunch nearby, admired our clean, lovely room, and enjoyed our much-anticipated first dip in one of the three warm-to-hot pools by mid-afternoon...Ah, what bliss! We cannot decide what we like the most: the spa, the pools, the comfy mattress and bedding, the saunas, the friendly, helpful staff, or their numerous other guest amenities. The lovely gardens led us to investigate the gracious and well-planned barbeque/picnic area for the first time, and now we cannot wait to entice a group of family and friends to join us for a fun and relaxing trip to this welcoming location in the near future. We love it!

Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am so happy to hear that on this trip you found our barbeque/picnic area, it is a very popular spot for groups and couples. As you noticed we offer both gas and charcoal grills along with grilling utensils (our housekeeping department keeps the grills so clean that many new guests comment about there apparent lack of use)! The only item you would need to purchase is charcoal if you chose not to use one of the gas grills. Our staff will be more than happy to assist you in planning your next family reunion or group of friends this spring or summer. Please give us a call-we look forward to serving you again soon!
