The absolute best place to stay in Calistoga (if budget is not an issue) is the Four Seasons Resort and Residences Napa Valley. This wonderful hotel is part of the Auberge Resort Collection.
You might notice that there isn't a "star" rating with this resort. That is because the star ratings are not applicable since it is above them and situated at the "Luxury" level of resorts. It is basically designed with every amenity you could ever want.
You'll enjoy the spa with two pools, a 24-hour gym, and 24-hour front desk service. There are two restaurants on the grounds, including the fantastic TRUSS Restaurant + Bar. And if that isn't enough, they also have a tasting room for Elusa Winery.
You will have your choice of room or suites located throughout the grounds. And, as you'd expect, the rooms are out of this luxurious like you've never imagined.

Another popular Calistoga lodging option is Embrace Calistoga. It's a bed and breakfast with five uniquely designed rooms. Each room is spectacular and is an experience unlike any other.
Staying here includes a more intimate experience. You get the chance to mingle with other guests in a quiet atmosphere. They serve a gourmet breakfast each morning and offer a fun gathering with wine and cheese every evening from 5 pm to 7 pm.
It's such a charming place that I'm sure you will love it!
Chateau de Vie is another beautiful bed and breakfast option in Calistoga. It's a great find in the middle of the countryside and right next to their beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Vineyards. Even though it's outside town, it's only a five-minute drive to this lovely town's restaurants and shops.
For the price, this is my favorite option in Calistoga.
In addition to its relaxing location also features a private jacuzzi hot tub, a heated pool, and continuous concierge and beverage service. You can also request garden or indoor spa services.
Their peaceful setting and wonderful amenities make me want to revisit them soon!
The best budget-friendly find here is the Best Western Plus Stevenson Manner. It's perfect if you are on a tighter budget or don't plan to spend much time in your room.
I also love it because it's right in the heart of the action. If you love to head out on the town, you will want to consider this option.
It's a 2.5-star hotel but features an outdoor pool, free internet access, a concierge, and complimentary breakfast. Some of the rooms also feature a kitchenette and family rooms.
The City of Napa has the largest concentration of hotels. It's also the best bet for those looking for a bit of nightlife and grand hotels in the mid-to-lower budget ranges.

This is perfect for those on business in Napa or looking for a standard 4-star hotel for their visit.
If you are looking for a great B&B right in the city of Napa, then check out the Inn on Randolph. It offers five rooms in the main house as well as five private cottages if you want even more alone time.
All options include the newest amenities as they were all completely renovated when the Inn opened. They also offer onsite massage service, large community rooms for you to relax outside of your rooms, and a gourmet breakfast each morning.

They are great for large groups, but they do come at a price.
The best way to describe this four-star bed and breakfast is to state that it's a hidden gem and the perfect weekend getaway. It's set on a property with gorgeous vineyards and is within walking distance of a few of the best Napa Valley Wineries. You are also just a short drive to St. Helena (2 miles) and dozens of other great wine-tasting options.
They do not offer TVs, so you can truly relax in this quiet environment. They provide a daily wine social, a complimentary shuttle to nearby restaurants, and a pool and hot tub. There are only 29 rooms, so it is very personal and cute.
The five-star hotel offers 36 rooms in a beautiful property in St. Helena. It's a great place to see the authentic charm of Napa Valley.

And when you wake up, you are treated to an amazing seasonal breakfast daily. For coffee lovers, they have a unique blend made specifically for them by the Napa Valley Roasting Company.
Note: They have special deals for people attending the Culinary Arts Academy.
This four-star property is another one of the best of the Napa Valley Hotels. They offer wonderful amenities from their outdoor pool to access to their onsite workout facilities.
The other thing I really like about the Harvest Inn is that it's set on nearly 8-acres of property that borders gorgeous Napa Valley vineyards.
Named neighborhoods also set up the property, and each section has a unique view. The 74 guest rooms are well equipped and offer you the comfort you've been waiting for on your trip here!
Of course, I always like to add one budget option per location. For St. Helena, it's the El Bonita.
This 2.5-star option doesn't offer many amenities, but it's clean and in an incredible location. They offer free parking, a refrigerator, access to their pool, and free internet.
The Bardessono is one of the best Napa Valley Hotels on my list. It's a 4.5-star that offers luxurious suites and everything you would expect from a high-end hotel.
While you are here, make sure to check out their onsite spa as well as their award-winning restaurant, Lucy Restaurant and Bar.
You can also relax in their poolside bar, enjoy their spa services, and take breakfast in bed. This property is also dog friendly.

One of the best ways to enjoy Napa Valley is by staying in one of its lovely B&Bs. I've mentioned a few above, but there are many more great options.
Another popular option is to rent an apartment or house for your stay. This will give you the freedom of a place of your own. It's the perfect option for those staying with a larger group or staying for more than just a few days.
Here are a few places I recommend looking for your rentals.
TripAdvisor: TripAdvisor has a large number of vacation rentals in Napa. Options on their list range from small studio apartments to 4- and 5-bedroom houses with pools. There are also a large number of reviews from those that stayed previously, so you get a great sense of what to expect during your stay. Click here to review their vacation rentals.
VRBO: I also use VRBO quite a bit for these types of rentals. You get a great look at the places available, and their website makes it easy to find something that fits your needs. Click here to check out VRBO selections.
Many places throughout the US, including Napa, are starting to crack down on short-term vacation rentals. What began as a wonderful idea has exploded and cut into the business of local hotels and resorts. Their issue with short-term rentals is that they do not have to follow the same rules, pay taxes, and follow other hotel regulations.
This allows short-term rental properties to rent their places for less.
It is required in Napa Valley to have a permit to rent your apartment or house to those renting for the short term. You may get stuck in the middle as they begin to crack down on those renting without permits.
Now, it's an extreme case that you would have issues, but it's something I like to mention to anyone using these services I recommend or any others. Since they do not have to provide their permit to sign up for these services, you cannot guarantee that they are legal rentals.
Here is a recent article to give you a better idea of what's happening on this topic:
I recommend asking a few questions before you rent to know what risks you are willing to take. Yes, these can be a great, cost-effective way to visit Napa, but there could be some downsides also.
