We got a super low price on Priceline and admittedly our expectations were low. But I am happy to say we were pleasantly surprised. Check in was easy and friendly. The clerk had no problem accommodating our request for a downstairs room or giving us extra pillows. The room was non smoking and did not smell like smoke at all,... More

Good value for money. Beds are fine, free wifi and coffee (and some bananas ?) Great hospitality and i would definitely recommend this place to family and friends. I stayed here during a trip from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe after visiting Napa Valley.

We were looking for a budget motel in Placerville and this "fit the bill" for us. We were greeted by Kavita, a soon-to-be mother, who was the manager and was friendly and accomodating. We had hoped for a budget price and found that it was under $60. The room was basic and clean with a comfortable bed. We enjoyed our... More

I used trip advisor to decide between National 9 Inn and Best Western in Placerville and was very disappointed I chose National 9 Inn. We paid almost $100. per night and stayed 2 nights. It was not worth that. Every other hotel we stayed in on our week in California cost much less and had much more. The breakfast was... More

Best Motel I have ever stayed in for the price. Room was very clean and comfortable. TV was nice. Room had a microwave and coffee pot. Bed was very soft. Also, front desk lady was super nice. Will definitely stay here from now on, meaning I'll have more money to spend at the wineries!

We stayed here one night while passing through Placerville. For $59 night this was by far the least expensive hotel we found on our 10 day road trip. It was refreshing to find an inexpensive place after paying $150 the night before. Yes it was very basic, but clean and functional. I have to say some of the most glowing... More

Stayed here while visiting from England to see family. Although usually only used for very short breaks, we stayed for two weeks. Were surprised at the standard of the rooms. Very clean, great shower, good towels. The king sized bed really comfortable, all of the staff really helpful and very friendly. Free wi fi very welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend... More

Called to cancel my reservation today and they were not going to provide me email confirmation that reservation was cancelled. "Kim" at the front desk said "are you kidding?" when I asked for a reservation confirmation for cancellation. She said I am too busy and I had to plead with her to send me a email when possible to stated... More

Recently stayed here while attending an area function. Very comfortable quiet night sleep! Yes, rooms are very basic, but very clean!!! Wife and I stay at many very high end places and spend four times what these rooms go for. With the price of gasoline these days, saving money is a big deal to most. Staff are very accomodating and... More

This was the best possible version of a roadside motel. The room was spotless, the furniture was all new, and the towels were surprisingly substantial for a motel. Great water pressure in the shower. The bed was perfectly comfortable. The setting was quiet. The owner/manager was amazingly friendly, pleasant and helpful when we checked in. We got way more than... More
