Good hotel for business. Convenient location to highway. Pretty standard Holiday Inn. Standard breakfast offerings. As expected service and rooms. Easy check in and out. Would stay here again if necessary.

Staff was excellent. Room was clean and well appointed. We arrived early. Room was not ready, but staff helped us prepare ourselves and gift for party we were attending as if we were old friends! Requested additional blanket and they were there almost before I had the phone back in the cradle. Super helpful.

This hotel is great ! This is my second time at this hotel and the rooms are always clean. I do not mind paying extra as long as the place is everything a hotel is suppose to be. The staff is always friendly and helpful, they even brought a roll away bed for my son. We booked 2 rooms and... More

Road trip through California and we headed to Yosemite from Monterey. Perfect stop was Merced and we picked the Holiday Inn. Stayed just one night on our trip to Yosemite and it was perfect. Rooms were very spacious and clean, as there were three adults sharing. Staff were very friendly and helpful, once we mentioned that we were heading to... More

Rooms were clean and staff was very kind. There was a problem as we went to the room ,the door was propped open. I checked inside to make sure everything was alright before my wife entered ,and it was. I called the front desk just to make sure they knew. When we reached the second floor I also noticed a...

khawkwv, Thank you for sharing your experience at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced. It's always fantastic to hear that our staff took good care of you. I'm certainly sorry about the cigarette smell. We have been a nonsmoking hotel since we opened in 2009, and do our best to determine which room is the cause when we hear (or... More

We needed a room for one night with five kids to including two toddlers. The two queen, pull out sofa suite worked great. It was right off the freeway, reasonably priced and included breakfast the next morning.

Joy W, It's great to hear our two queen suite with the sofa sleeper worked out for your family. May your future travels feature as few "Are we there yet?" questions as possible! Sean Williams General Manager More

Spacious rooms. Comfortable easy chair plus good working space with comfortable desk chair. Nice size refrigerator that had a noticeable smell, suggesting that housekeeping neglects it. We stayed a few nights. Housekeeping neglected to clean our ice bucket and give us a new bucket liner each day. Housekeeping occurred in mid afternoon despite our pleas for earlier cleaning since one... More

We recently stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night because our destination - Mariposa - was totally sold out. Definitely one of the better 'express' type hotels. Room was spacious and extremely clean, the mattress relatively new and quite comfortable, and the staff friendly and accommodating. Would recommend it.
