I was traveling with my mother and I was a bit skeptical about staying in Merced. As we were driving down from Redding from visiting family she made the reservation on her phone. When we got there all of my doubts were put to rest. The young man working at the front desk Victor along with Patty welcomed us immediately... More

Rooms were very clean and well kept. We loved the pool and hot tub during our stay, both were very clean and relaxing. When we went out to the pool there were no towels, so we went to ask for them and we didn't have to wait two minutes for them to bring out a stack. The staff there was... More

I recently rented their meeting space there and it was wonderful. The room is spacious, clean and inviting. Francisco with maintenance and Patty at the front desk were wonderful in assisting with my event. Francisco periodically checked and made sure the garbage was empty and clean.
