Keep it real at El Bonita
Don't let the lack of masculine/feminine agreement turn you off: If you're on a budget and appreciate vintage charm, El Bonita Motel in St. Helena is one of a kind in Napa Valley
. Just south of the town of St. Helena, it is basic, clean, quiet, charming and affordable. Request a room in the back by the Spanish-style courtyard, walk to Gott's Roadside for dinner, the Cameo Theater for a movie and end the day with a bottle of wine on your not-really-private-but-who-cares porch. This is what we call #napavalleycasual.
