El Bonita Motel
Helena, CA

The glowing neon art deco sign and location off busy Hwy. 29 in St. Helena don’t deter the loyal guests of this often sold-out budget inn, who often nab a room by calling 72 hours before they want to stay (when free cancellations end). The dark carpets and homey furniture are a bit of a throwback, but many rooms also feature crisp white linens, vineyard-themed painted headboards and modern baths with marble vanities, as well as small patios. The garden-filled grounds hold a heated pool, Jacuzzi and sauna.
