Why We Love It

  • Laid-back, quiet and affordable option in pricey Calistoga Wine Country
  • There’s a complimentary shuttle to local wineries, many of which are within walking or biking distance
  • Right atop Calistoga’s famed hot springs -- there are two mineral water pools and a Jacuzzi on site
  • Rooms are immaculate, with a bright and cheerful retro-modern design

Map & Directions

The hotel is about an hourlong drive from Napa. It's two hours from both Oakland International Airport and San Francisco International Airport, so renting a car is the best option. 

Rooms & Rates

Set in the sleepy, laid-back country in the north end of the Napa Valley, The Sunburst Calistoga offers guests a casual place to crash after a day of sunshine, tastings and vineyard tours. 

It's right along Highway 29, in the perfect location for exploring northern Wine Country.  Passersby may not take notice of the modest ranch-style exterior, but inside, refreshed rooms distinguish themselves with bright green doors and cheerful retro-modern décor. The hotel sits atop Calistoga’s famed hot springs, so an early morning dip in the on-site mineral pools and Jacuzzi set the tone for a relaxing getaway.

Afterwards, head out to explore over a dozen wineries in town -- many are within walking distance or reachable along the local bike path (bike rentals are available through the hotel for an additional fee). Guests who prefer to be whisked from tasting to tasting can take the complimentary hotel shuttle to any winery within Calistoga, as well as to the shops and restaurants downtown, a five-minute drive away. For a more scenic, slow-paced drive through wine country, the entrance to the Silverado Trail is a few minutes from the hotel. 

By nightfall, the property gets relatively quiet; the pool area closes at 10 p.m. and the front desk an hour later. Highway noise carries through the valley and the walls are thin, so light sleepers can grab complimentary ear plugs from the desk drawer to ensure a good night’s sleep.

while the rooms are beautiful, the bathroom isn't really functional - there is only 1 hook in the bathroom, no where to hang stuff. the shower curtain rod is too high to dry out swimsuits - some hooks in the shower would help that, a place to hang the hand towel for handwashing right by the sink, too also, i got an email a week before my arrival to indicate our preferences and needs -none of them were met, while minor (extra towels for my toddler, tea k-cups since i don't drink coffee, it was our anniversary) i didn't see the point of having me fill that out then as i had to ask for stuff at the desk. last time we stayed, they offered breakfast coupons, this time they didn't, i asked about that in the email, didn't get a response. again, minor issues, everyone who worked there was very helpful and courteous, we had a really wonderful time there and will definitely be coming back.

Unless you were in bed the furniture was super uncomfortable. The pools smelled heavily of chlorine. Very stark, but clean
