4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2014

Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff was wonderful. No complaints. Only thing I would highly recommend is deotorizer, the lobby entrance had an odor. Front desk staff could be a little more up beat and smile, she was very nice and speedy with our checkin. However a smile is more welcoming.

Checking in was a breeze, the staff was professional and friendly. The room was easy to get to and clean. When the lights went out it was quiet. In the morning there was a nice breakfast, and again the staff was friendly.

I choose the Holiday Inn Express Hotel, Merced again after staying there a year ago while visiting family. I was as pleased this year as I was before. The hotel was clean, updated, & convenient. The surrounding area is not exactly "nice" but we were not there to be on the streets. Overall, I enjoyed the hotel very much.

Our vehicle was broken into and robbed of several thousand dollars worth of items. Reported it to main desk and their attitude was rather indifferent. "Well You'll have to call the police." Did give us the number. Police responded and wrote up a report. The HI Express in Merced.Calif. is next to an abanded, boarded up bowling alley with 15... More

The service was great, room was comfortable and the staff were very nice and friendly, especially the lady and man handling breakfast in the morning. Breakfast menus offered variety and were like home cooked meals. The only complain is the slow internet.

Breakfast was included in the room rate - and there was a good selection of breakfast items to choose from. The two queen size beds were very comfortable, and the room was very clean, and well maintained. Great value for a short... More
