This motel was the best I had ever stayed in. The safe was very nice, and kept the rooms and common areas very clean. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there. The price was very affordable for the area in which the motel is located.

Amazing room and service. We had a bit of a mix up on our check in but they handled it with aplomb. Two thumbs up!

Very good interior, modern bathroom with an elegant shower. Don't let the older exterior turn you off. Excellent rates considering the cost to stay at other locations in St. Helena.

Just checked in. The place is very nice and quaint, especially for the price. Upgraded bathrooms, nice lobby. Rooms in the front building are a little small -- but we're here to drink wine, not hang out in the room all day. Cheers 🍷

Perfect for an overnight stay in St Helena. Budget stay if you take the poolside rooms, more upscale in the back. Pool and hot tub are great in the evening.

Great location and great price for Napa. Rooms were large, updated, and clean. Pool was nice, back patio and firepit were a wonderful end to the day. We would definitely stay again.

Great motel! Clean, comfortable and quaint. Good location. If you are staying here because you are receiving medical treatment at Adventists Health they offer a discount if you call them directly to make your reservation. Will always stay here.

The location was ideal for what brought to St Helena- short drive to most shops/restaurants and even walking distance to some. Rooms and bathrooms were bigger than expected. Our first-floor room opened to a back patio and a quiet grassy area behind the building, for a nice place to sit. The staff and service we're superb and very accommodating of our early arrival.

Clean rooms, friendly staff. TV doesn't get many channels and was surprised the minibar wasn't stocked. Would stay again if Harvest Inn is full.

Great room (we stayed at Le Port), with a cute patio view, kitchenette with Keurig, microwave and mini fridge. Super comfortable bed. Complimentary breakfast was alright but nothing to rave about

Nice place, it has a pool, Jacuzzi, sauna. Nice rooms with fridge, coffee maker, the only thing is the beds were hard and lumpy, the rest was great.

Rooms are quite cozy but clean and neat. Bathrooms cozy but with heated floor. Continental breakfast very basic. Price is right. Just have to know what you are getting and what you want.

Room was fine for the price and location. Skip the included continental breakfast and go into town to get something to eat. Stale donuts, croissants and fruit is all that is up for grabs. Would stay again just for the price.

It is a cute little place that was probably built in the 50s. The rooms are small but fixed up as nice as possible with refrigerator, microwave, tv with lots of channels, and a very small bathroom but good sized shower with very nice time and a heated floor. There is a pool and hot tub, and they include basic breakfast of cereal, fruit, yogurt and pastries. The motel is next to the main road so you can hear some noise, but not too bad. A great choice for a low cost place to stay in Napa

"budget" accommodations in a very expensive part of the country. Definitely the nicest motel I've stayed in.

Location, location, location. And this always comes at a hefty price but in this case, this is one of the rare instances where it doesn’t have to. If you are looking to spend your bucks on wine and not on your stay, look no further. This place is perfect to rest from a long winery hopping day and stay in the heart of St. Helena. Beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are updated. The down side is that the hotel is right on the highway so you’ll hear cars going by if the AC is not on. Also, my AC unit wasnt working but the two nights I stayed were cool (in the 50 degree level) so we were just fine without it. Book in advance tho since its a steal and fills up quickly around holidays!

A nice quiet little motel in St. Helena. The rooms are nice and clean. Rooms in the back building are more spacious than the front building. Lots of little places to sit outside and enjoy the evening over a glass of wine
