We only stayed here one night in June and and judging by some of the more recent reviews, perhaps things have changed for the better. Maybe we were unlucky and stayed at the same time as some people who weren't good neighbours but it seemed that the entire motel was servicing some rather undesirable characters! Some of the guests looked... More

I came from S.F. and didn't want to spend the whole day on the road, so I stopped off in Merced at this location. It is right by the 140 if you are taking that to go into Yosemite. The place was nice and the rooms were clean. They had plenty of places close by to take care of your... More

Stayed here for a night while en-route to Yosemite. The room was very clean & spacious. No dearth of basic amenities. This place was just off the highway to Yosemite (140), so it was an easy entry and exit. Room was moderately priced. There is a McD adjacent to this hotel, so unavailability of breakfast was not a problem for... More

I have been staying here half a dozen times a year for the past five years and have noticed many changes. The newly remodeled rooms are very clean, spacious, but very austere. No more reefer or microwaves. Additionally, there is no FOX news on the TV which is very disappointing. It would seem as though the usual, friendly staff that... More

Stayed here for one night whilst on the road, the room was very basic but clean, vinyl floor, good shower. Noisy aircon but at least they had it, italian across the road done the job. Wouldn't stay for more than one night but it was a good stop off for after yosemite and before Gilroy and coast.
