I wish I could have given this place a GOOD rating but I had to choose between Average and Very Good...and well you just can't refer to Dr. Wilkinson's as average! We've enjoyed staying at Dr Wilkinson's on two separate occasions. Its a great little location for a weekend getaway as long as you don't conflict with a prime weekend...which can really ratchet up all the Calistoga prices.
The hotel is clean and the beds are comfortable, but the overall impression is of a hotel from the early 60s. That's cool with us, we dig that vibe. The rooms tend to face inward to a courtyard and there is no real lobby to speak of.
We come for the location and the soaking. The hotel is in the heart of Calistoga with easy access to fantastic vineyards. There are three mineral pools (one indoor and two outdoor). The are all kept at varying temperatures and are impeccably clean. Nothing beats an evening of soaking...alternating between the hottest and coolest pool. So energizing!
On our visits the staff was polite and helpful, the other guests were quiet and well mannered. There was also a refreshing absence of children. It may not be like this all the time, but we've been fortunate on our visits.
We haven't used the spa...so I can't provide any feedback. But the bed was comfortable, internet worked well, and the water pressure was sufficient. The Shower in our King room was pretty small though. Dr. Wilkinson's is almost always priced very competitively. That doesn't mean its every really cheap...its just cheaper. But we'll be back again....to soak in those wonderful pools and tour those beautiful wineries.
