Other than the pleasant front office desk staff, this motel has little to recommend it. The cottages were very sparsely furnished with old, worn furniture, and the walls were almost barren of any pictures. The hot tub, supposedly fed from the natural hot springs that underlie Calistoga, was not very hot, and whenever the jets would come on, the first...

Booked room over the phone. Friday, 01-20-17 8:52 pm checked into room and was charged in full. 9:30 pm realized that both televisions did not work, picked up phone to call office and realized the phone did not work. Walked to the office and found a note on the door indicating the office was closed until 9:00 am. Experienced issues...

Carlin Cottages is an older property, however, our Room #1 had been recently renovated with all new paint and tiles and fluffy white towels, tasteful wall hangings.The micro, mini-frig and bar sink came in very handy for our 6 night stay. The mineral water was piped directly into our in-suite Jacuzzi...oh what a beautiful feeling. Don't be concerned about the...

I booked our room over 3 months ago. This morning I received an email that they canceled my reservation. When I called, the lady stated they were canceling due to "construction." We are set to visit next weekend and have our flights booked. I asked the receptionist why they didn't call me earlier, and she said "the owner wanted me...

I realize lodging is expensive on a New Year holiday, but with a 704 price tag I would have at least expected an open socket to plug in my cell phone without having to put it in the bathroom. The desk clerk had to bring over an extension cord and pull out the bed to plug it in. The jacuzzi...

Very comfortable rooms. We enjoyed the spring fed swimming pool very much as well as the hot tub. The cottages are located right in town so it's easy to walk anywhere. The rooms could use some updating but they are clean and comfortable. The rooms have kitchens so one can prepare meals and/or barbeque. Very peaceful location!

We were very disappointed to find that our one-bedroom unit didn't actually have a separate bedroom, it was one big room with two queen beds side by side. We booked for two couples and were expecting to be able to have some privacy. The unit wasn't adequately supplied for four people and I had to ask for extra bowls, plates...
