This motel is in the heart of wine country. If you want an affordable, clean, well maintained motel in an excellent spot then this is the place for you. Very close to St. Helena for groceries, wine tastings, restaurants, downtown shopping and more. I will recommend this place t

Filthy, black mold, dirt on fruit, horrible hot tub, disgusting hair dryer, dirt everywhere, dirt on comforter, and much more. Tried to speak with Front Office and either no one was there or I received a "shrug" when asking to speak to someone and there was nothing they could do.

This place is a throwback to the early days of "motor hotels". Although it has been appropriately modernized, it has the feel of a motel from the 50s. Love it!

We got a garden room in the back. Nice and quiet, and very relaxing for sleeping. I also got a room for our daughte

Hello, Does Uber and/or Lyft operate in the area of this hotel? Or, is there a reliable taxi service nearby?
Uber is in the area but I'm not sure about Lyft as I have never used it. There are taxis as well but they are not very reliable and are very expensive

What is the difference between a Homestead room and a Garden room? Specifically, which rooms are furthest away from the main road?
There are 3 different buildings. The main building (northeast), the one story garden building (on the southwest side of the property) and the two-story Homestead building (northwest). Both the Garden and Homestead are about the same distance away from the main road. The Garden is the farthest away from any road (the Homestead are closer to El Bonita avenue, which doesn't get much traffic).
