A little noisy as it's right next to the freeway, but otherwise awesome. Excercise room is too little, but not really my thing anyway. Staff was excellent. Cleaning staff was great. They left earplugs in the room if the road noise was bothersome.

We stayed at this hotel even though we traveled 20 miles out of our way because of our prior great experiences with BW Plus hotels. The room was very outdated and below average in decor and we were shocked to find a printed notice that said "Sorry for the freeway and railroad noise, here are some complementary earplugs." I probably... More

Overall the staff there was very friendly and really helpful in resolving issued that we encountered. During our second day, for some reasons all our bathroom lights were not working. The staff quickly switched us to another room. The breakfast there was quite decent with waffles, yogurt, boiled eggs, fresh fruits, etc.. Beds were comfortable. My comments of the room... More

From the outside it looks like any other Best Western Hotel or for that matter any number of chain motels, but when you get inside to the front counter and your treated like a long lost friend. Got checked in quickly, was asked more than once was there any thing else they could do for us, and if not right... More

This is pretty much a standard Best Western---clean, comfortable and well located. Our room was large and nicely decorated. Best of all, we were able to park by the front door which makes it easy for seniors to unload the car. Breakfast was standard. Price was a big high for the area but we were mostly concerned with safety and... More

One of the best run Best Western's that I have stayed in. Room, service, breakfast, friendliness/professionality were outstanding. The only small negative is that the location is right beside HWY 99, and it is a little noisy.

This hotel is right next to a very busy motorway and so noisy. The exterior of the hotel looks very seedy and had we not booked and so lost our deposit we would have never stayed. The bathroom was very poorly decorated and the room very dated in its decoration with uneven walls. It was clean but quite small. Breakfast... More

The Hotel is located in a decent location with close proximity to restaurants in merced downtown. Stayed there for a couple of nights and parking , breakfast was not an issue. Pretty decent crowd and pretty safe.

Right off Highway 99. They did not say anything at the front desk, however ear plugs and a note in the room. bathroom had low pressure and a toilet that barely worked. Be careful in traveling downtown an obvious gang dominated neighborhood. I suggest traveling closer to the University area for dinner.

It could be that I had the smallest,most cluttered room in the place resembling an old 60's room rental. Too much furniture and stacked rather than placed. Bathroom extremely small and closet area very messy. The website misleads that this is a quiet classy place. It is right on HWY 99 and noisy. They offer ear plugs. Yeah right. Trains... More
