I stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels often so I have a very good idea what to expect. It also means that little things can swing my rating either way. This HIE was fine. It was clean, updated, the bed was comfortable, and the front desk staff was friendly. I have come to expect these things at this chain. The... More

We booked 6 rooms through Ex for a family vacation in Yosemite and Area. Upon arrival at 4;00pm we were told by Sean that the Hotel was overbooked and that we would be getting King size beds in all rooms. That did not work for us as we had told Ex how many people per room. Sean helped us out... More

Wyatt H, Thank you for taking time to share your experience at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced. Unfortunately the reservations you made through a third party were for "standard rooms", with the number of beds to be determined by availability rather than at time of booking. When guests really need a specific number of beds, I highly recommend booking... More

We regularly hold training sessions at this hotel. Its your standard Holiday Inn express, however the people working there make it above par. From Maria who runs the breakfast to Elaine who helps us book & setup our meetings and arrange food. Its a fresh & encouraging experience when everyone there has a "can do attitude" first. They make my... More

Came during the busiest time of the year for Merced - graduation at UCMerced. If you're used to 5 star accommodations, you're really gonna have to tone it down when you come through this area. That being said, Holiday Inn express is definitely one of the better options on Motel drive. It was a teeny bit further from downtown than... More

Room was immaculately clean. Nicely furnished. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great. Most likely we will return when visiting our niece and her family. We came for a baby shower, our niece expecting triplets. Hotel personnel very kind.

Very pleasant hotel. Clean, quiet rooms with everything you want and expect from a good hotel. The neighborhood leaves a bit to be desired, with no restaurants within a couple of miles. But once you figure that out, the hotel itself is like a pleasant refuge. Typical HIE breakfast with fairly inedible eggs, but I know enough to just not... More

I always have problems staying in hotels because I do not think the blankets are very clean, and I take my own but this time I forgot. But I love my bed was deliciously CLEAN. People were friendly. An employee by the name of Maria Vega was very helpful and kind during breakfast time. It is very important to me,... More

This Holiday Inn Express was just what my husband and I needed on our way to Yosemite. On vacation, my biggest requirement is a good night sleep. This HIE had quiet rooms with comfortable beds. There was a GREAT breakfast and good coffee. Wifi worked well. The staff was very friendly.
