Older motel, for price, worth it. Refrigerator , microwave, and air conditioner working. Room clean. Management friendly. One car one space for room , since it is very small. Pool small but open . Not ritzy by any means but comfortable and affordable. Across the street from a Denny's and office offers Danish and coffee in the morning. If you want a clean , no frills , place to crash while enjoying the beach, this is it. Price may seem a little high for a place like this, but if you know anything about the area and prices of hotels and rooms in their busy season, it is reasonable . If comfortable , basic , reasonable price, and clean is not what u are looking for then break the bank and go for swank. Management is a friendly and accommodating as higher priced places , so that gave it a little extra plus in my book. Also saw linen services picking up here , so linens and sheets ect. Are not done on premises but through professional service. Happy beach trip travels, I hope this review helps. Also there is an enterprise rental car real close as well.

My family and I stayed a week here. We chose National 9 for the exceptional rates (best in the city) but ended up finding sparkling, clean, nice-smelling rooms, an extremely friendly staff, and an atmosphere that truly felt like home away from home. Management did everything they could to make our stay pleasant and relaxing, and housekeeping did a superb job cleaning up after our two kids (ages 3 and 4). Coffee was always hot and delicious, and the complimentary danishes were enjoyed by all. Fast internet, top of the line A/C, soft beds with clean blankets, and front desk will be quick and friendly with whatever help you need. For great value, nice location and a pleasant stay with staff that genuinely care, give this place a look! We loved it.

Weary after 4days straight of commercial crabbing, even at midnight Vic the owner was very nice! The room was much more than I expected. Clean, good size tv with cable and HBO, wifi works great, and they had a nice little breakfast claw assortment next to the coffee and orange juice in the office when I woke up . Talking to Kim (co-owner)this morning was nice as well. During our conversation over coffee, I heard about a guy who was smoking pot in the room and then misplaced some money, in which the amount continued to change from 3 to 5 to 7 hundred dollars. They (the owners) went as far as letting the guy search the premise, the maid, and even the maid's car!!! I wouldn't have let it go that far, I would have had him leave way before that. The maid Is now on their 11th year of service to the owners. I just wanted to mention that because one bad apple (rotten really) shouldn't affect someone's hotel selection. I felt super safe and comfortable here and losing a possession was the least of my worries. Victor and Kim take a lot of pride in their hotel and it shows. And at a little over half the cost of a beach motel, i was still an 8 minute drive to the boardwalk in heavy morning traffic. 4 stars! I look forward to another affordable night stay.

Santa Cruz hotel prices vary quite a bit of the same hotels depending on what was going on the weekend and are also seasonal. The weekend of our stay went sky high from the usual $100 to $229. This was also the most inexpensive place we could find in the area for the same day booking.

The motel was very basic and slightly tired furnishings but was clean with fast internet. The air conditioner worked in wonders and definitely kept the room chilled. There was an ice machine downstairs. There was only 1 soap in terms of amenities so it definitely required a trip to the convenience store to pick up shampoo and body lotion, etc. The sink was outside the bathroom.

There's also a small pool outside.

The place was a bit far from the beach but okay if you drive. There were just enough parking spots in the lot and were tight. We got the very last one.

There was packaged pastries and basic brewed coffee and OJ in the morning if you need something before going out.

The owners were friendly, and the check-in and check-out were fast.

We were pleasantly surprised when we visited Santa Cruz on a busy weekend with our 5 grandchildren. Every hotel we tried was booked. We finally visited the small (vintage looking) hotel called National 9. We normally would not have used this hotel but are glad we did. The rooms were clean and fresh smelling. The pool was just right for the kids. It was quiet and the owners could not have been nicer and anymore accommodating than they were. We were highly satisfied with our stay and can recommend this friendly little hotel.

Room Tip: We needed adjoining rooms and was accommodated. The rooms also had nice, large high definition flat screen TV's, it was wonderful.
