The National 9 Inn was a bit of a gamble, as I booked my stay with no prior knowledge. Expectations are low with any $50/night hotel, but my risk was rewarded with a great hotel experience. I called the front desk about two hours before checking in with a small, yet bizarre request for my room. Mash at the front... More

We always stay here when we are in Cali visiting family. We stayed our 1st 2 nights at a "name brand" hotel in Cameron Park and were completely unsatisfied so we decided to return to Ole Faithful.....We are always pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms, the attitude of the staff and the affordability of the hotel. We have never... More

I have to react to an earlier review: this motel is not in a bad area. Far from it. True it's not in a new part of town, it's a mature building surrounded by older buidings. Not new doesn't mean bad. Management is super, room is great for the price. Real convenient location. Really hot water, good linens. Rooms are... More

We have stayed here before and reviewed this property before. I had gotten to know the previous managers, you never know how a set of new managers may turn out. This last trip I was wondering how it would be, I had liked the atomsphere and staff before. Turns out Kim and her husband Mash who took over are very... More

We stayed at the National 9 Inn after reading the good reviews on this website. What should be mentioned though, is that it isn't exactly located the nicest area. When we arrived hobo's were standing in the dumpster looking for cans (the recycling unit is behind the hotel) and some guys used the front of our room to sit in... More

First off i would like to state that the hotel is located on the quiet end of town towards the residential area. We have never had an issue with theft or vandalism on our property. Due to the current economic problems, poverty is increasing in Placerville. The homeless in this town are very harmless and do not pose as a... More

Booked this directly by telephone with the motel, as 3 travel websites wanted $105.00 per room then said no rooms were available. I got a double room, for 3 people, for $74.00. The free wireless internet was a bonus. This place reminds me of the old mom&pop motels where they treated their customers like friends. I knew the travel sites... More

Arrived in Placercville on a 1 night stop during a trip in north california. It is an indipendent motel, so I was a little bit worried (due to past experience in other small towns). It is a typical motel style, but it is very clean and staff (maybe the owners) are very very kind. I payed a very good rate... More

There aren't many hotels/motels in Placerville, but this one is a gem. Accomodations are typical motel type, but the motel is spotless and the couple at the desk are wonderful. Very helpful, friendly, and nice. Rooms were comfortable, if basic, and the property shines with outdoor flowers and shrubs. As motels in Placerville go, this one is among the very... More
