Negative Reviews

In need of renovation

Many previous visitors have noted that the National 9 Santa Cruz is outdated and showing signs of wear and tear. This opinion is typically built upon the apparently old-fashioned televisions, uncomfortable beds and dated décor throughout. In addition, the soundproofing of the rooms is regarded as substandard.

Rooms missing standard amenities

The lack of amenities is a somewhat common criticism about the rooms at the motel. For example, past guests have stated that the rooms are missing toiletries, and only select accommodations at the motel come equipped with standard appliances such as a refrigerator and microwave.

Parking limited and tricky to maneuver

The free on-site parking, whilst welcomed initially, was a problematic situation for numerous former visitors that stayed at the National 9 Santa Cruz. Along with a supposedly limited amount of spaces, the parking lot itself is considered small and difficult to negotiate.
