“Excellent service, and reasonably priced”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We just spent a long weekend here and were very impressed. The rooms were quite spacious and very clean. They also had a fridge and microwave, which was very helpful. The Inn is a little outside the small downtown of Calistoga, but you could walk there in 10 minutes. It's very quiet, which we like as light sleepers. We would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights on a qucik getaway to wine country. Nothing but good to say about this place. The staff were very helpful and polite. Left a jacket in the room upon departing and had a call when we got home notifying us that they would mail it home for us. The room was very clean modern and comfortable. Very quiet and relaxing. The pool area has a large hot tub, dry sauna, and a wet sauna very nice. Highly recommend staying here.

Calistoga is a great town as a base for exploring Wine Country. But your lodging choices here are mostly very expensive boutique spas. But what if you are on a budget, or have kids, or don't need 24/7 spa access? Well, then there is the Best Western Stevenson Manor. I'm giving it Five Stars because it is hands-down THE BEST VALUE FOR MONEY at this end of the Wine Country.

However a good price is only an advantage if it doesn't mean substandard. At the Stevenson, you get scrupulously clean and spacious rooms -- a few with fireplaces -- and lots of amenities that add up to way more than you'd expect for the cost (which is well below $100 a night, especially with the many discounts offered: 2 or 3 night stay discount, AARP, AAA, Military. They even offer a discount for guest who are staying to be near relatives having operations at nearby St. Helena Hospital.)

First of all, some of the pictures of the exterior make the place look bigger than it is. Rather than a big impersonal chain hotel, this is a cozy little motel -- only part of which is two story -- built around a charming little enclosed patio. The location is an easy walk to all the restaurants and spas along Calistoga's main drag.

Let's go over what I got for my room rate of $89 (return visit discount for a Thursday and Friday night stay):

*A large, scrupulously clean room with two double beds with comfortable linens and a lovely bathroom with whirlpool tub. (Some rooms have fire places and several are handicapped accessible.)

*Lots of amenities such as free newspapers, Wi-Fi, sink, microwave, refrigerator, wine glasses, coffee service in room and more.

*An amazingly good FREE breakfast that included my choice of waffles, yogurt and fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, toast, pastries, fresh juice.

*Afternoon complimentary wine tasting with the day's featured wine and cheese.

*Extremely friendly, attentive staff -- from the owner/manager who acted as a gracious host to the guy who quickly fixed a minor problem with our TV.

This hotel would be especially good for families with children -- especially since kids are not usually welcomed at some of the more boutiquey inns around here. If you were trying to do the area on a budget or with a family, the free breakfasts alone would make it doable. (Load the kids up at breakfast, then stock your in-room fridge with snacks and sandwich fixins from the nearby Cala Market.)

It's also a great budget option for exploring Wine Country. Most people flock to overpriced, overcrowded St. Helena. But Calistoga is right at the tip of the two main wine trails through the Valley -- Route 29 and the Silverado Trail. Calistoga also features some nice little museums such as The Sharpsteen Museum and access to mountain hiking, the Petrified Forest and the Old Faithful Geyser.

Here are the things to be aware of about the Stephenson:

*The hotel has a very nice little heated pool area with pool, hot tub, sauna. Yes, it is small, but almost all of the resorts around here have day passes or free pool access if you book a spa treatment. So use the Stephenson pool most days and book a spa treatment/pool day somewhere else for a splurge.

*This is not necessarily a spot for a romantic getaway. While not as noisy as one reviewer claimed, people with children do stay here. As noted in other reviews, there are some rooms that are further removed from common areas. If quiet is important to you, ask for those rooms.

So my recommendations? Families with kids or people on a budget, this is your place. AS for me? I don't have kids and I'm not on a budget, but I'm still glad I discovered the Stephenson. I was here twice while my mother had a knee replacement at St. Helena Hospital -- so I wasn't here for a vacation. But I found my experience enjoyable and comfortable. The bonus was, I felt comfortable splurging on a massage and good dinners at some of the town's best restaurants since my stay at the Stephenson was so reasonable.

Room Tip: Since this is a child-friendly lodging (few in Calistoga are), request a room far from common areas...

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a recent trip to California, and one night in wine country. I had done a lot of research, and settled on this property because it looked like it delivered a lot of quality for the money. It was absolutely fantastic! Our king fireplace room was perfect, very up-to-date, and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were spotless, and at ideal temps. The continental breakfast was extensive. We walked into town in just a few minutes.The staff were helpful and welcoming. All around, we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
