I don't know exactly what I expected but not the lively and charming lobby of the Courtyard by Marriott, Merced! The Starbucks cafe, bar, gym, ambience... all contributed to a delightful one night stay.

My wife and I stopped here on way home on vacation to visit our son going to UC Merced. It's nice to hear "I'd like to see you" from him...so we did. He stayed with us in a queen room, it was fine.....we all slept well. We enjoyed a morning swim in the indoor pool, spa. It was a bit... More

Very modern pretty hotel. Only 90 rooms. Restaurant serves breakfast through to evening. Very reasonably priced. Our room very cosy although through the night there were a few freight trains passing on the nearby main railroad. Did not spoil the one night stay and much needed sleep. Few shops about a half mile from the hotel. Very friendly staff and... More

The Merced Courtyard is a pretty standard Marriott Courtyard, positioned on the edge of Merced we used it as a stop off having driven from LA and visiting Sequioa and Kings Canyon on the way. It's clean, staff are friendly and the room decoration average - I think it might even been a few revisions behind the latest Courtyard designs,... More

This hotel was very accommodating and met our needs (3 couples and two children). All 3 rooms were clean, comfortable and on the same floor with an adjoining door for a pair of the rooms. The hotel has a bistro with a Starbucks which serves breakfast and lunch as early as 7am. Sylvia and Sonia were very helpful! Our family... More

Hi gang, Stayed in beautiful, sunny Merced for just one night on my way to Atwater. Paid $119 plus $12 taxes. Oh joy..... Check-in was swift and efficient with extra smiles to go. Got a room on the third facing the freeway and RR tracks beyond. At night you can hear the trains rumble by and occasional traffic noises but... More

Hello Nothreeputts, Sorry for the freeway noises. Our proximity to 99 can be awfully convenient but it's not always without it's disadvantages! Glad to hear that everything else was to your liking. Hope to see you again next time you need a few good days of golf! Sincerely, Patrick O'Connor General Manager More

I've been staying at the Courtyard Marriott in Merced every week for the past year, and their customer service has been much improved over the past year. Part of the upgrade was hiring one of their best customer service associates, Xay to handle all of the check-ins. She is very outgoing, and always greats the guests in a friendly matter.

We can always count on Courtyard Marriott for their consistent level of service and amenities. This Merced location was convenient to the highway, very clean, had a nice area for food, and excellent customer service upon check-in. Of course we always love the Marriott beds and get a great nights sleep. We were very pleased with the price, also.

The Bistro and Starbucks served at this hotel made a huge difference for my stay! They had great coffee and breakfast options as well as great lunch, dinner, and snack options. Their wings were awesome! Check-in... More
