My husband and I stayed here along with our two dogs as a stop-over on our long drive from Oregon to San Diego. We were looking for someplace near the midpoint of our trip and randomly picked Merced. If this B&B were anywhere else they would be able to charge twice as much. We stayed in the free-standing Buggy House.... More

What ever your reason to visit Merced, business or pleasure, this is the only place to stay. The Hooper House Bear Creek Inn is a historical property impeccably restored and maintained. Samantha was our amazing innkeeper full of great information on the grounds, the history of the house and Merced in general. She also whipped up an delicious gluten free... More

Are you coming home from Yosemite? Going to a Valley U.C. campus for business? Then this is the place to stay. The Bed and the Breakfast add to the experience if staying in a gracious Central California home. Breakfast is the real deal - no toaster ovens and bagels (unless you want them). The front rooms need more sound insulation.... More

I'm torn about how to write this review because the aspects that I didn't enjoy about my visit are not under the staff's control at the Hooper House. The property is lovely, beautiful, cozy house with a beautiful garden. The rooms spacious and clean, and tastefully decorated with antiques. The bed was super comfy too. I can only say good... More

Boy did we appreciate the quietness, soft bed, white cotton quilt and feather pillows and big bathtub coming after a week of hiking in Yosemite and trying to sleep in a Curry Village tent cabin! Hooper House is a beautiful old historic homestead with lovely grounds/gardens, antiques and we felt like we were in the lap of luxury! You need... More

I stayed there in spring 2006 with my wife on one of her business trips. I was very glad to be in a place where one actually loves to spend the day. It felt very homely -- almost like visiting your well-to-do grandmother. We both loved the place!

My husband and I stayed here last year and could not wait to return. We have a well behaved dog that was able to stay with us in our room. The house is super clean and everyone is very nice.

My wife was raised in Merced and occasionally we go back for family functions. Merced isn't a tourist destination, mostly a stopping point up CA Hwy 99 and/or to Yosemite, so hotel options are limited, mostly near-freeway, low-budget traveler options. On our most recent trip we did a little internet hunting on found this B&B. This was an old historic... More

A nice setting, but too noisy and hot. We have stayed at many B&Bs and this was average. The pros: clean, well located and a nice (though small) breakfast in the morning. The cons: you could hear every noise in the bathrooms. Heat is set high for downstairs comfort-which is suffocating for guest rooms upstairs. We opened our windows to... More

I stayed at this B&B for 2 nights in the Blue Room. The house and room was very clean. The B&B does not operate like a traditional B&B. They are more concerned about your privacy and they dont force a lot of conversation...which I liked! I did like how one of the house maids came to my room in the... More
