I was very lucky to find a last minute room in this motel. Working the Sand fire on the night shift I needed to sleep all day. The manager and staff gladly accommodated my needs. The room was clean and the AC worked great! The motel is old and there are some cosmetic issues but the friendly staff and willingness... More

We had a very nice stay at this small motel in Placerville. The room was clean and quiet. Although from the outside the hotel does not look inviting. The reasonable cost and good location make for a very nice stay.

The location is convenient but the traffic is insane. Needs a real pool to be just perfect. The couple running it seem nice she was a little scattered but he had a pretty good head on his shoulders. But to there benefit they are working on it.

Okay, here is the deal. It is family owned and operated. Very sweet family. It is nothing to write home about except it is clean and the owner is very customer service oriented. The WiFi is one of the best I have EVER experienced regardless of price or location. The traffic noise might be an issue, but again the owner... More

Our stay was last minute and unplanned. Our car broke down on Friday night in Placerville and no other place was available. When we called around 9:30 PM to make a reservation we talked to a nice woman who held the last room available for us. After we explained to her that our car broke down and we are waiting... More

We checked in late but it wasn't an issue at he reception. We received a free WiFi password. This hotel is very clean. It is very basic but it was better than most Best Western I've previously stayed in. Our room was a truly NON-Smoking room which did not smell of cold cigarette smoke. I would definitely recommend this hotel.... More

“Not to my liking” Pending review Let me start by saying I arrived after driving for 10 1/2 hours, so I was tired. The good things...the place was clean, the shower was good and the bed comfortable. Now for the other side...when I arrived there were two young women at check in who tried to be helpful with restaurants etc.... More

We were a little worried, but it was just great. The room was very clean, the towels were fine and the staff was welcoming. The breakfast should not be called this way (weird sugary buns and coffee, at least they had bananas!). That's not the motel's fault, but it's fairly close to the highway, so it's a little loud. There... More

We came here to stay for the Apple Hill festival they have every year. This place is buzzing just after Labor Day at all the Apple Farms in the area. You can get some very good Apple "products" like Apple turnovers, pie, and other various forms of Apple pastries. We have a few farms we are sure to visit, and... More

There is little to write about the National 9, positive or negative. It is what you would imagine a roadside motel to be. That said, while not everything was perfect, it was acceptable and for a low price, that's what one can expect. The beds were comfortable and the shower powerful. Cleaning regime was ok, but not what one might... More
