I like the location. It is walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Calistoga. The beds were comfy and AC came in handy since it was still hot. Mineral pools were lovely! Staff was very accommodating and helpful and friendly. I loved that they are pet friendly. It would be nice to have courtesy coffee available in lobby in the morning. That was the only thing I would change.

Ughgh save your $$ and book something in the city. Cost must just be for approximity to the beach & still its at least a walk block. It is an old & run down property that they try to fix by putting a DJ in the lobby. No where to take the dogs potty & no restaurants open late night near by. Oh & not the deal breaker but the tv only has local cable. You cant even log onto Netflix.

A Little Help From Our Friends
Rocky at the front desk was a great beginning. She later helped me with a WiFi issue that saved the day. I was so tired when I first arrived I think I misspelled my initial rave review regarding her. Sorry. I really appreciated her manner and her help.
