I couldn't ask for more than 16 MB/s download speed from wifi at a budget hotel. These are nice speeds to pass the night away. The room was clean and quiet. Bathroom appliances all in good order. The room had an old analog TV, but that's come as may be.

Desk clerk super helpful. Ca. $60 with my aarp card on a friday night. Room perfectly clean. Shower had plenty of hot water. TV and all lights worked. Bed comfortable. Heater worked. Quiet. Free coffee in morning. Free wifi with AARP membership but spotty.

We made reservations for Motel 6 in Merced. After dragging our luggage to the room we found a 1/8 star room. Might I call it a rat hole. No rug. Did I say sterile to the point of feeling like you are in a rat's cage. No furniture;. Just an empty room with a television glued to the wall. What... More

The room was a non-smoking room, but you could tell it was recently smoked in, and a feeble attempt was made to mask the smell with a cheap air freshener, resulting in a rotten salad bar smell. The air conditioner is so loud that it wakes you up all night, every time it kicks on. There is no carpet in... More

I stayed there on my way to Yosemite and I first was told they had no clean rooms at the time she told us to come back not very considerate.

The girl working at 9:30 pm on 7/25/2015 took my reservation and I asked if it was ok to come late, we'd be arriving around 1am. She said no problem. We got there and my reservation was not in the system and they were sold out. The guy at the desk was nice and apologized but honestly that does nothing... More

The "non smoking" room smelled like smoke and perfume covering it up. It was dirty and run down. The staff wasn't very friendly at all. For the price, I was expecting average-- not a dump. We are a military family moving across the country on a budget which is why we chose this place. Looking back, I'd spend the extra... More
