Great location. Cute property. Loved to be able to checkin at 1:30, however, they gave us a room with a non working keypad. So we were late to a reservation while they fixed it so that was a set back. I’d give a higher rating if had stayed on 2nd floor. Old motel, so thin walls. Couldn’t sleep when the person above us would walk around was very very loud and housekeeping kept knocking on our door at 845am when checkout is 11:30. I also did send them an email asking for specific Napa recommendations ahead of time and never heard back. All that being said, we’d stay again. Had a fire pit going, we didn’t have the chance to enjoy as well as spa and pool.

Surprisingly quiet for being right next to the highway.

Rooms were clean and comfortable, grounds were beautiful, lots of room to sit outside around the fire pit or pool. Continental breakfast was good. We had four rooms and everyone in our party thought it was great.

Very nice people and nice grounds to visit with family.

Nice small property in Wine Country. Room was a bit small, but fine for a quick one night stay. Bathroom was very small, especially for me being a big guy. But again, not that big of a deal. Overall nice place, conviently located, and nice pool area with a Sauna.

Very comfortable and clean. Easy check in. Breakfast included. Nice pool. Good location

The pool experience was excellent. Great jacuzzi and nicely heated pool. Maid service was excellent. Other than some very good scones the breakfast was sufficient but underwhelming. But then there was location location location. In the center of the Napa valley many shops, restaurants, and wineries are close, and for those who can, it is only a one mile walk to the center of St Helena. Only a half a mile to the Cliff Family tasting room, which I recommend. And oh yes, the El Bonita is a great value for the price. Clean and comfortable but won’t bust your budget.

Great hotel at a good price for the area. Would stay here again. Room was clean- staff was pleasant and helpful. Nice breakfast.

We like the decor of the motel. Also it was nice to have two chairs at the patio!

Good facility, close to great restaurants and vineyards.

We were in a room facing the pool and the street but it was very very quiet...

This motel is just fine. The rooms are tiny, but contain everything you need.

Everything about this hotel was extremely nice except for the woman who was working the front desk! She had no personality and never smiled! I even said how beautiful the orchid was on the counter and she never said a word! I have worked with the public all of my life and would never treat a customer like she did!
