Stayed a night while passing through town on the way back to SF. Hotel appears pretty new. Nice beds, good tv and internet reception. High ceilings in the rooms is a nice touch and makes them appear larger. Typical good breakfast with large seating area. The area does seem a little sketchy. There is a closed up bowling alley right... More

I had trouble sleeping here due to the beds being too soft. The check-in went well without any problems and it was quiet enough for me but the beds need to be reviewed for replacement? I had no other negative issues while staying here. Got my wake-up call as promised.

The staff was friendly and the room was large. The bathroom was large and had plenty of hot water, but was slightly under pressure. Bed was comfortable. The pool and hot tub were outside and the exercise room was acceptable. Heard road noise, but didn't keep me awake any. Had the typical HIE buffet breakfast and was pleasing to the... More

Greeted warmly, prompt and courteous service made this a nice visit. Employees all made an effort to make eye contact and smile - such a small gesture but seems to be missing in customer service these days. Rooms very nice, bed clean and comfy

Stayed here on a Thanksgiving road trip. It's freeway convenient but the noise is not an issue. Staff were friendly, and we had two rooms - both were clean and well presented. Would certainly stay here again!

I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn for many years but I'll start from now on. This hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. Breakfast was great. Only stayed here for one night but will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Merced again.
