Less than an hour north of Napa, the Sunburst Calistoga is a comfy, stylish base for exploring the region’s wineries, spas and boutiques. Fully renovated in 2013, guestrooms are done up with a retro-modern look in bright orange, white and black, with flatscreen TVs, mini fridges and coffee makers. All of the en-suite bathrooms have black-and-white tiled showers stocked with Gilchrist & Soames amenities, plus robes and vintage-style vanities. For travelers with pets, the hotel partners with a local pet-sitting service to provide private walks, group exercise and more (for a fee). Fresh coffee is available in the lobby and guests are welcome to refuel from a day on the vineyards with picnics and wine in the manicured garden. Or, for serious relaxation, there are three outdoor mineral pools heated naturally by local hot springs to between 80 and 100 degrees.
In the Area
Historic Calistoga is a gateway to some of California’s best wine regions, including Sonoma Wine Country, Russian River Valley and Healdsburg. Most wineries now have daily tastings for a small fee — check out favorites like Chateau Montelena, plus Bennett Lane Winery and Castello di Amorosa. Beyond the vines, the region is known for its Old Faithful Geysers, just a short drive away, hikes along the Palisades Trail and the vibrant art scene in downtown Calistoga. For foodies, nearby Yountville is a hub for Michelin-star restaurants. Book well in advance to score a table at the legendary French Laundry, Bouchon or Redd, or head to downtown Calistoga for dinner at local fave, JoLe.
How to Get There
The Calistoga Motor Lodge had clean rooms, responsive staff, and a great spa! Very close to vineyards, and cute Calistoga downtown. I would definitely recommend to friends, and would stay there again in the future.
My sister and I stayed for four nights in a camper king suite and absolutely loved the place. Excellent pools, relaxing and friendly atmosphere, and great location to walk to restaurants (or borrow a bike!). We will be back!
They didn’t notice that and it was terrible! We wanted some compensation and they told me that the best they can do is $25 refund. Ridiculous!
We’re so upset because we paid a lot of money for this vacation and it was horrible!
