Checking in here was easy and affordable. Bill, the desk clerk, was helpful and friendly. He handled every concern of ours quickly and completely. We had plenty of towels and washcloths, and I especially enjoyed the large bathroom sink/countertop area. Lots of outlets for recharging phones, mp3 players, etc.

Driving from Arizona to Washington State we were really tired, we decided to stop at this Motel 6. I am glad we did, the front desk clerk Ronelle was very friendly, fast, and helpful. She took the time to print us directions to the local Wal-Mart. Our room was very spacious, nice and clean! The first thing I always check... More

Very clean and tidy motel, rooms were spacious and our room had a fridge and microwave. I suppose we expected Motel 6 to be less well appointed but were nicely surprised. Better than many other hotels we had stayed in previously. Reception was good and we enjoyed the customer service offered by Bill, well done motel 6

We booked through Expedia a non-smoking, two bed room based on the Expedia reviews and pictures. HUGE MISTAKE! After the clerk verified the above for us in his computer system we signed in and took the keys, We went to the room and as we got to the top of the stairs we noticed ... the door was propped open...

The rooms were very nice. Obviously this site was changed to a Motel 6, and not remodeled. Very cozy feeling. The rooms was an awkward design, when you open the door to enter the room you get a view of the sink and bathroom area, which is no fun when you are coming out of the shower, or getting dressed.

I made the mistake of staying in Merced to visit Yosemite. Nothing to do with the motel but in case anyone is thinking of staying in Merced at any motel to save money don't because you will get tired from driving 4hours each day to get to Yosemite and back. So onto the good and the bad. The good: -... More

My family and I decided to stay here as a last resort because we were so exhausted from our long journey, and to our convenience, it was near the freeway. We stayed in a room that had two queen beds. At the time we were all so tired and we just needed to hit the hay! As I opened the... More

Beds and pillows ok, internet was fine. My big complaint is why can't they turn on the a/c when they have a guaranteed reservation for the night. It was 107 degress... More

We decided to stay here on a trip to Yosemite. The facility was well maintained and the front desk staff was very friendly.
