This Holiday express is conveniently located just off the 99-Fwy. It is about 30- min from Yosemite (just down the 140) & 45-min from Sequoia & Kings Canyon. It was a clean & nicely kept hotel (Most Holiday Expresses usually are). The staff was friendly & courteous. This Holiday Express has a fitness center & nice outdoor pool & hot... More

Due to a funeral, I stayed at a different hotel which ended up staying one more night. This hotel was great. I got had gotten a king suite room and it was super clean, fresh and the linens smelled so good. I wanted to take them home. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was great. Really made a difference... More

Stayed here for the night after leaving Yosemite - a pretty drive down and convenient stop-off before moving on through California. This property is another great example of how Holiday In Expresses have improved in the last couple of years, without hiking their prices. Great room, nice pool, good service - very good value-for-money. Although it is very close to... More

The hotel is conveniently situated close to the freeway, yet quiet. We booked a suite and although it was very comfortable, the view was very limited because the hotel entrance was directly in front of the window. It would have been better for us had the tv been in the lounge area rather than at the foot of the beds.... More

The Hoilday Inn is a great place to break the journey to Yosemite if you are driving from San Francisco Airport. The rooms are a good size and the hotel facilities better than you would normally expect with a budget hotel. The hotel has a reasonable outdoor pool and a small but well equiped gym. A self service breakfast facility... More

Overall my stay at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced was great. Called a few times to confirm my stay and asked a few area questions and Patricia at the Front Desk was great at answering questions. Checked in with General Manager Sean, which is a nice surprise to see that a GM takes a leadership role in the... More

Those who have read my reviews know I love HI Ex sites for their amazing value for what you get and can expect. This is one of those HIEx that almost makes my families hidden gems list. If you're a priority club person, this is a sure bet. GREAT value per points with huge rooms/breakfast/pool areas right of of 99... More

Hotel rooms were large and well equipped. We'd booked a king suite which was huge. Laundry room on the second floor just along from the room was ideally located for us. Best breakfast, regularly replenished by the staff. Nice pool and setting. Not much in Merced though but we used this as a stopping off point before Yosemite. We'd stay... More

Eve though Merced might not be yuor destination, it's close to Yosemite. This hotel is very nice and seems like a newer property. The breakfast is well stocked and the rooms very clean. the staff is also friendly. So, if your travelling norht or south on hwy.99 and find yourself in Merced for the night, stay at this HIE.

This is one of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels we have stayed in....and we've stayed at lots! Receptionist was friendly and helpful, especially when we decided to extend our stay for another night. There is a laundry, a pool and a fitness centre, plus a large breakfast room which the friendly breakfast lady kept very well-stocked - no matter... More
