I have to stay here for a work project or I never would think about this place. Last room problems: bathroom sink sprayed onto you while running the water, toliet would not flush without holding handle down, smelled bad in room, bad smell in hallway like sewage, a/c temp off 6 degrees, bed needs to be replaced. No place to... More

We recently experienced an amazing road trip through the southern states. Our favourite placed to stay was Motel 6, in Merced California. When I arrived at the front desk and introduced myself as a senior, Bill, the desk clerk asked me to prove it with ID! That hooked me and we hada very pleasant and happy conversation. He answered all... More

After reading the Motel 6 reviews in Modesto, we elected to continue to Merced. It was a clean pleasant motel and Ronelle went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. When I expressed concern about security of my car, she told me where to park that was in view of the front desk. Gave me directions to local... More

Stayed one night and was happy with the room and service. Nice basic, and spacious room upstairs with comfortable bed, clean and quiet too. Staff was courteous and helpful. Thanks Bob! Said they are available 24 hours. I have stayed at a few hotel 6's and this was one of the best. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe... More

This was a really nice motel, and the staff was great. The room was clean, the price was good and there was gas, and food within walking distance. If you have read any of my reviews you know that is always a plus after a day on on road. I would stay here again.

We thought we were calling a Super 8 Motel and found that it had changed hands to a Motel 6 within the past year. The man I spoke to was very pleasant and spoke very highly of the motel. I was a little hesitant as I have had some poorly run Motel 6s in the past. but I was very... More

The perfect place for a nice, clean, quiet, secure and comfortable rest. If we had any problems with the appliances or the room, the staff took ownership and resolved it and even following up later to make sure everything is ok.

Everything was just great, and check in/out was easy and quick...Bill was super helpful and friendly. Clean, quiet, comfortable. I would definitely go back. It was a pleasure to find myself in Merced. The bed was very comfortable-great TV-immaculate bathroom-very quiet. I slept very well after a long day on the road. But mostly, delightful customer service-thank you, Bill!
