“Good motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

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 stay and felt we had "struck it rich" during our vacation up historic Hwy 49 and the old gold mining towns.

Room Tip: We found the ground level to be convenient.

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 sad and the towels were thin. On the positive side the staff was very nice and helpful, but again not worth $100.00 per night. I definitely would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Not a good value.

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 reviews were written through rose colored glasses. Our rating of very good takes into consideration the cost. You just can't expect much for $59-$69 in Placerville; or really most anywhere in CA these days. We felt the value was excellent which is more than we can say for hotels we spent double the money on.
We would stay here again but one night would be enough. Its nice to give the pocketbook a break on a long trip so we were glad they provided that opportunity.

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 this motel as a base for visiting the area

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 it was cancelled. She was rude, snarky and just gave me a hard time. I am sure glad I decided t stay some where else, I travel to Placerville on business all the time and I will never stay there based on this experience
