Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Chic rooms with Art Deco styling
  • Located on Calistoga's main drag, within walking distance of dining and shopping
  • Clean upscale spa with full services
  • Free breakfast in bed
  • Relaxing wine bar plus a full restaurant
  • Nice heated outdoor pool with drink service, private cabanas, and Jacuzzi
  • Modern amenities such as iPod docks and flat-screen TVs
  • Aveda bath products
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free bottle of wine in suites

Cons

  • No scenic views -- mostly faraway hills and parking lots
  • Rooms are smaller than at other hotels
  • Self-parking can be hard to come by
  • Shoddy Wi-Fi
  • Tiny bathrooms hard to maneuver

Bottom Line

The remodeled rooms, suites, and cottages at the Mount View Hotel & Spa have a boutique feel, with hip, trendy accents mixed with dark sleek furniture. But beware: The rooms (and baths) are a little on the small side for an upper-middle-range hotel. The connected restaurant and wine bar are always lively, and the hotel's location in the heart of charming Calistoga puts guests within walking distance of plenty of action -- or, if you prefer, you can relax at the hotel's full-service spa. Just don't expect breathtaking views -- you won't be in the middle of a scenic vineyard. You're more likely to be looking at a parking lot.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In downtown Calistoga, a small but happening destination in the heart of wine country

The Mount View Inn is located right on Calistoga's main drag, steps away from restaurants, bars and shopping. The town was designed to be easily travelled by foot for visitors who arrived by train near the turn of the century, and this hasn't changed.

Calistoga's name is said to come from a Freudian slip made by the town's founder while trying to describe it as the Saratoga of California: In many ways, they've succeeded in recreating the same quaint, relaxed vibe. The area is well known for its many natural hot springs and has been a wellness destination for visitors for over a century. Of course, the town has also had the fortune of California's booming wine industry growing up in around it.

  • 95-minute drive to Oakland International Airport
  • 110-minute drive to San Francisco International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to shopping, dining and nightlife on Calistoga's main drag
  • 4-minute walk to the Calistoga Spa Hot Springs, naturally heated mineral baths
  • 3-minute drive to the Silverado Trail, a strip of Napa Valley's wineries and vineyards
  • 4-minute drive to wine tasting at Chateau Montelena Winery, winners of the historic Judgment of Paris
  • 95-minute drive to downtown San Francisco
