I was looking for a B+B or different hotel in Merced because the last time we visited our son at UC Merced we stayed at the Courtyard and my husband got no sleep. There was a wedding party on our floor and the hotel was fully booked (Parents' Weekend). Just like freshmen we made the rookie mistake of choosing a... More

We've stayed before. This time in the blue room. The rooms are fine, bed comfortable. Had no problem with noise. Breakfast (baked oatmeal) was good and our requested time of 8:55 (they stop at 9) was accepted w/o complaint. This time around tho' the B&B was hard to get a hold of. We had a couple of changes to our... More

First two calls to the usual National chain hotels at Hotel Circle in Merced were sold out so we gave this place a shot. It was a little more money, but as it turned out well worth the price. The location is adjacent to Bear Creek which is bordered by a park and bike/walking path, which we enjoyed with a... More

We've stayed at the Hooper House on several occasions over the past few years as our son attends UC Merced. We love the ambiance and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We've always found our room very clean and the beds are soft and comfortable. The breakfasts are terrific and something we look forward to. I'm a light sleeper... More

We had booked the hooper house for 2 weeks but ended up canceling the last week. Under the hooper house is an apartment of the landlord. That is her home. Between 1-2 AM we were woken up be a loud noise. It was some sort of central air condition system cooling down both the hooper house and the landlords apartment.... More

Before Christmas, we spent a night at this elegant and classy mansion, having the whole property for ourselves. We did enjoy every corner of the house, sipping coffee in the sun room, nightcap by the fireplace, and have our lovely and delicious breakfast in the dining room. The place was tidy and clean. Our bedroom was spacious with adjoining sitting... More

A beautiful period home in superb grounds. We stayed in what was the master bedroom complete with separate dressing / shower room and delightful veranda. The whole house was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff were charming and very helpful and the breakfast delicious. The only downside were the distant train horns at night but you soon got used... More

Staying at Hooper House was like staying with your wealthy friend. With a friendly staff the Inn and grounds were wonderfully maintained. There were antiques throughout. Great breakfast and a Keurig beverage area for guests with a microwave with popcorn. The rooms were large, there was a sun room, balcony, lush gardens and lawns. We are looking forward to returning.... More
