Stayed two nights at El Bonita Motel. Great location for Napa Valley! Had a room with 2 queen-size beds on the garden side of the hotel (quieter). Comfy beds, fridge, a great modern shower, and even some wine glasses to taste all that wine you'll get in Napa! Friendly service and a continental breakfast rounded out a good stay. It's... More

We really appreciated this motel. It is conveniently located in St. Helena (Napa Valley) which is quite an expensive area. However, our room was affordable (in comparison), had a great selection of rooms, a nice pool/hot tub area, beautiful gardens, and was comfortable. I don't think the staff was necessarily friendly or welcoming except for all of the cleaning ladies... More

I was up in St. Helena for a winery event and needed a place to spend the night. This was the perfect place. Close to everything, clean comfortable rooms, great service and great room rates for the Napa Valley. The rooms are not large but are clean and comfortable and I was sold when I found their was a Keruig... More

My wife and I recently visited the Napa area. We had reservations for a one night stay at El Bonita Motel on 5/15/15. We checked in at around 4 PM after a great day exploring the area. The woman who checked us in was extremely rude and uninviting. The first thing she said to us was, "Did you read the... More

We paid $260 per night plus tax. That's way too much for this very basic motel. They do have a decent little pool though. Location is good for visiting wineries. Water main broke the day we checked in, so they shut off the water for most of our first day. We'll see if they offer a discount as a result.

WinoRick (that's me) and my wife were drafted into baby sitting duty as our daughter and son-in-law attended one of a gazillion weekend winery weddings. Their children of 4, 2 and 2 weeks were our charge. The motel was able to check us in early and adjust our reservations to give us the 'King George" suite. Not only did this... More

This is a very pleasant renovated motel-like establishment which is inexpensive compared to many Napa valley places. Most rooms are set off the main drag which keeps the noise down. The renovations especially in the bathroom tiling are over and above what would be required. It is located at the south end of St Helena. This means that there is... More

This motel has been recently updated and for the price it costs to stay in Napa Valley area you just can not beat it, very peaceful with a view of the hills from our balcony, just a quaint place. Would defiantly stay ther again. Fairly close to all the restaurants and shops downtown.

So, a family of Virginians is randomly driving through the Napa region with no plans or reservations. We pulled into this little place solely because of its street presence. The window boxes full of colorful flowers suggested this would be a well cared for motel. We enjoyed a pleasant stay in the heart of wine country. Nice place, and we... More

We spent 2 nights in a Homestead room, away from the noise of Hwy 29. We visited right at the end of the winter rate season, so only paid $129 a night. The room was spacious and clean and we appreciated the having a fridge to store our wine and snacks. We left our car in the lot and walked... More
