“Relaxing getaway”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Had a really nice stay at this low key quiet resort. First time in the Napa area & Calistoga is a nice little town. Our room was very clean, had a nice little fridge that we filled up on a shopping trip to the awesome grocery store right next store. The 2 outdoor pools were on the smaller size for when it gets busy but the indoor hot tub was divine.

We had a great stay at this resort. It is an older facility that is kept very clean. The staff at the Spa and the hotel are very professional and highly skilled. The staff really added to the enjoyment of the stay. The location is excellent to access the shops and restaurants on Lincoln Ave.

I have been going to Dr. Wilkinson's for 22 years, and had the honor to have chatted with "Doc" on several occasions. The rooms have evolved from 50's funk - bungalows with tables topped with linoleum to a modern, relaxed, and comfortable 21st century look. The accommodations, while not opulent do everything that a hotel should do. More importantly, the staff simply could not be more friendly or more helpful. Anyone seeking a second lease on life should come and enjoy "the works" in the spa. The mud is the best.
Additionally, little Calistoga boasts at least three superb restaurants and a dynamite breakfast shop. This is a great place for a lost weekend. You'll never want to be found.

I love this place!! Been coming for 28 years since my mom first brought me for my first massage! So relaxing! Sunny pool and patio areas with 2 outdoor pools and 1 indoor hot pool. Rooms have beautiful bedding, and a mini fridge to store all the great specialty foods and wine you can find next door at the neighborhood market. Enjoy a soothing massage or mud bath and be treated by a great staff.

I only stay here when I go to Calistoga, it offers everything I need for a rejuvenating get away!

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.
