Guest Comments about Golden Haven Hot Springs
AMAZING!! I didn't want to leave and I will definitely be back at Least once a year. I went for my bachelorette spa weekend...we had seven girls and we did the girlfriend package. It was affordable, the service was amazing from every person we encountered and the rooms we had were clean and adorable. The package included the mud bath, Private Hot Springs Mineral Bath soak, blanket wrap, massage, facial and one night stay. Such a great deal! I could go on forever. All the girls had a great time. Thank you Golden Haven. C.P., August 2017
My mud attendant (Eli) was so sweet and explained everything very well. My massage therapist (Andy) was absolutely amazing. Very gentle but spent extra time on my trouble areas. So sweet too. Wonderful experience overall. We will definitely be back. First time at a mud spa. Loved it. Like this place because it is not pretentious. Very warm and welcoming. J.M., August 2017
The room was very clean. The linen very clean. The mattress comfortable. This is a very cozy place to stay. Staff was welcoming and very knowledgeable about everything! J.P., August 2017
Spent the start of my birthday weekend here at Golden Haven with my "Golden gals". What a memorable time and much needed r&r. The great thing that made it worthwhile was the Girlfriend's Spa package special listed on their website. Considering this is near other more expensive spas & resorts, I am so glad we got to save money and still had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. C.L., September, 2017.
Loved staying here. Bed was comfortable and the jacuzzi tub was worth every penny. The front desk staff helped accommodate my last minute reservation. The mud baths!!!! This is a must do. It was amazing and my husband and I feel amazing and ready to float on through our day. Our hostess was Kim and she was absolutely lovely with a cheerful demeanor. She showed us through our treatment, never seemed intrusive, and made sure we were comfortable at every turn. Highly recommend requesting her. Thanks Golden Haven for an amazing experience!

I had visited other health spas in Calistoga in the past, but decided to try Golden Haven after I read about it online. I'm glad I made that choice. We loved the experience. The facilities were very nice, the couples mud bath, the body wrap, pool, etc, were so soothing and relaxing. The Staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. There is no question in my mind that the next time we are in Northern California, Golden Haven will be an essential part of the trip. It was an experience that will stay with us for many, many years to come. I.P, August 2017
My husband and I came for our honeymoon this location is not far from downtown Calistoga which makes this place so peaceful you can sit outside by the fire and hear the crickets, the room we had was nice clean and comfortable we had Jacuzzi tub in room very relaxing at end of the day. We did full spa package starting with mud bath and finishing with a massage. After mud bath and Jacuzzi soak you go in a room with a cooling bed and lights out we fell asleep tell the attendant came to wake us 30 min later for the massage, it was all perfect and extremely relaxing. I have never slept better after the first day there it was amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back to relax and ride the complimentary bikes around town very fun.

I had a great experience here. The staff was welcoming, attentive, and were there to assist with the mud bath experience in the right amounts. Additionally I had lost something and they were incredibly helpful, searching for it and shipping to me when it was found. The people here are beyond just great customer service, they are great people. The item I lost was of great value to me. Some schmuck could have found it and kept it and nobody would ever know, but that was not the case and I'm so grateful they have a compassionate and honest staff. At a facility like this you know that your treatments and experiences here are in excellent hands. J.P., May 2017
I love this place! Rooms are clean and so comfy! The grounds are so beautiful. Staff members are very friendly always providing service with a smile. Couples mud bath treatments followed by massages are amazing. Ask for Patrick and Andy as they give the best massages! They have bikes you can borrow for cruising around town and a gym! Not to mention the hot tubs and heated pool full of Calistoga's natural spring water! I swear the water heals not only your body but your soul! I found this place for my honey moon years ago and have been back for almost every anniversary. I try to get as many in between visits I can. Which is easy cause even my husband loves this place as much as me. I highly recommend this place!!! It's on the top of my list for vacation spots!! Thank you golden haven for always making me feel welcome! I will definitely be back soon! C.B., May 2015
I'm pretty nitpicky when it comes to hotels rooms, and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice my room was. It was clean, it was roomy, and it had great accessible outlets. There was also a good-sized fridge. The bed was comfy, too. The staff were all super nice, and they allowed me a late check-out since my spa treatments were going past the check-out time and I had to pump before I hit the road.
The pool and hot tubs were also really great. They have a warm tub and a hot tub, and the pool is about 85 degrees. It was never too crowded (and I was there on a holiday weekend during the tough mudder event, too). The mud bath was amazing! I had never done one before, and I loved every second of it. My massage was good. Not the best or worst I've had, but good. And the prices are certainly good!
I also loved that they have complimentary bikes. I hadn't ridden a bike in 30 years and decided to grab one to go into town (less than 5 minutes by bike, 10 minutes walking). It was a lot of fun! A.B., March, 2015
Made my first trip to Calistoga and Golden Haven almost twenty years ago - GH newly remodeled, this little motor inn style spa resort is still hard to beat for value and services received.
You can definitely stay at more expensive places in this town but you won't find them offering anymore than what you receive here. The wife and I did the couples deluxe get away spa package and stayed for a couple days (mid week) - couples mud baths, hot mineral bath, hour each massages, and a couple other pamperings - a king spa room with a hot mineral water jacuzzi provided a great secluded haven for us to retreat to.
The room was large with a comfortable king bed. A nice sized walk in two person shower and a large two person hot mineral water jetted tub (the same mineral water used in the spa) - we had our own little shaded sitting area in front to enjoy the view sunshine and solitude. Overnight guests have a variety of additional services available as well. Bicycles are available along with bocce ball courts, a fire pit area, swimming pool, and shaded lounging area with a giant chess board.
As well reserved private parking is right at your front door (like the old court yard motor inns) - Golden Haven is a little more laid back and not as nearly as pretentious as most of the "spa resorts" in town and you will definitely get more for you money here. A couple days at golden haven and everything is alright in the world again. R.F., June, 2014
Just what we were hoping for, only better! The room was very nice. It was clean, spacious with a vaulted ceiling, and I was able to park my "baby", right outside my door, in her own private parking stall. I have to admit, I loved that.
The covered mineral pool and jacuzzi's were extremely clean, and there was a nice little sun deck on the roof. The water actually feels "soft" to swim in.The office and spa are located to the rear of the complex, and behind that is a grassy open area with lounge chairs, bocci courts, etc. Nicely maintained.
We had our spa treatments the first night, and our attendant Theresa made our first Mud Bath a lot of fun, and even took pictures for us with our phones.Most of the people that we met there, had been there many times. And after our first experience, we can see why.
We are already looking forward to our next peaceful getaway here. J.J, May, 2014
"If you're looking for fancy schmancy, this isn't your place. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable and relaxing time that is a good value, stay here. The property is very nicely kept, the renovated "king standard" rooms are very clean with a small fridge and very comfortable bed and pillows. My husband and I did a couple's mud bath and it was a very nice experience, Chris was tremendous, great staff. The property is within walking distance to the main street with a grocery store and many nice shops and restaurants.
Prices are very reasonable for the area. If you want fancy robes and people waiting on you hand and foot, then you'll need to spend $500-$600 per night. If you want pleasant surroundings, nice people with more-than-adequate amenities, then I would definitely recommend this place for a nice weekend getaway without spending mega $$."C.V., March, 2014
Have been to Golden Haven spa at least five times. I have never stayed here but have enjoyed several mud baths. I have also had a massage here that was wonderful!
I have been to other mud baths in the area and I disliked them. I like Golden Haven because it feels private…This place you get your own room, your own mud bath or two if you are with your partner…The people here are very polite and always knock before entering the room…. After you get out there are robes you put on where you walk in to a quiet dimly lit room and lay in a blanket wrap while you cool off.
This place has great prices, good service and excellent mud bath! I will be back again! C.Y., January 2014
The swimming pool and jacuzzis are fantastic. We have met many other happy couples there. The room with a spa is spacious, comfortable, stylish, & clean--with king-size bed, large LCD TV with cable, a desk, table & chairs, fridge, ironing board & iron, coffee-pot & mugs, complimentary candies & spring water, & a huge shower with a firm oxygenated nozzle--& then there is the private spa, right in your room. Fresh-brewed coffee awaits you in front of the office @ 7:30AM. Then there are the famous mud baths, massages, & wraps. But now there is more!
There are additional new features that can't be beat: Like the newly paved & expanded parking lot, the 8 bikes & helmets, the ping pong table, the double hammock, the Bocci Courts, & the clubhouse ( with snacks & drinks, a large dining room & living room with games, & a large LCD TV with cable.)
Everyone here is extremely pleasant & helpful, making you feel like you are part of the family. Every accommodation is made for your enjoyment & convenience, and a lot of thought has gone into meeting your every need.
We enjoyed being here so much, that we are ready to tell everyone we can about it. What is so unique about this place, is that we felt we could be happy staying right here, as there is so much to do. Room Guest, November 2013
