Merced is really one of the last places I'd want to go, but since my team was playing a game there, we had no choice. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The beds were VERY comfortable and warm. Bathrooms were a good size and the overall appearance was pleasant. Rooms were pretty clean, but I found 1 hair... More

After a long drive from San Francisco airport to city of Merced, it was a welcome treat to arrive at this hotel and discover the hotel room had several soft pillows, or several hard pillows on the bed. The pillow cases are marked which pillow is soft versus hard. It's my opinion sleep quality is influenced by your personal pillow... More

We had a family reunion in the Merced area and made sure to do our research on clean, reasonable priced hotels. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff at breakfast was especially wonderful and helpful as we had three babies with us and they went above and beyond in help. I wished we would have got the name of... More

Stayed there for one night with my family before heading to Yosemite the next day. The staff was friendly and room was clean. I do think the price is a bit higher than what I would like to pay. There was no frige or microwave in our double queen room. The bath room was clean with adequate space. But I... More

The hotel is adequate. Staff was very friendly. For Merced, this is a good hotel. The breakfast was good. All of it looks like it came prepared in a freezer box and was reheated in hotel. Coffee station was...blah, coffee, milk, plain creamers. Pool area was o.k., needs some serious shade treatment as the deck is too hot to walk... More

Very clean and quiet room and hotel location. King room was actually larger than expected. The fitness room has an elliptical, stationary bike and treadmill. This HIE is about 15-20 minutes from the UC Merced campus. .
