“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.

We spent one night here because of the positive reviews . I don't know who wrote them but they are optimistic at best this motel is at its best the most basic thing a traveler should settle for . Was it clean ? Well if you a not to picky yes but the trashed work van in the parking lot and the carpet with other guests hair on it didn't help . Was it in a good spot ? It's close to the highway but In crappy area ,I wouldn't want to walk after dark . Was it a good value ? The sheets were clean but wrinkled and old , the ice bucket had no bag and the ac was old and very tired the mattress was not good either very soft . So the truth about this place is if this the first or second rated place to stay in placerville and you don't have don't stay in placerville . don't

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
