This time, I would like to share my experience in staying at National 9 Inn in South Lake Tahoe last December. We arrived at the hotel property around noon and we proceeded directly to the hotel for check-in. Check-in was fine although it could be a lot faster if there was somebody else helped the lady in the front desk... More

Place is well located, easy to find and with friendly staff. Rooms were clean, but it could be better. Shower head was too low, probably for a short person. TV is not flat screen, but was working fine. Maybe an upgrade would be more desirable. What caught more our attention was the miserable "continental breakfast" with only coffee and pre-packaged...

Not a bad place to stay for the money. Right off the main street in South Tahoe California. They kept the parking area cleared of snow as it had snowed quite a bit during our stay. Very attentive and the owners are very nice people and would definitely stay again...

The room itself was quite clean and okay. The beds were somewhat squeaky and not comfortable. The shower was bad and the head almost came off when I tried to adjust it. Worst of all, the 'continental breakfast' they offered was just a danish cookie and terrible coffee. The manager's explaination was that this is all 'continental breakfast' means and... More

Stay ok but cleaning crew stole my Christian Dior perfume. Beware and don't leave valuables in the room. The owners proved to be sarcastic and unwilling to do anything once the problem presented to them.

We stayed 1 night at the National 9 Inn on Aug 20th. It's conveniently located in the Heavenly village, next to all casinos and 4 miles from Zephyr Cove beach (must go for water activities). The motel had AC/TV/Fridge/Microwave. Interiors were modest and the place was clean, smell-free. If you are looking for a non-cheapo but yet affordable place, I... More
