We stayed here last Weekend for 2 nights, Property is Well maintain and clean, the 2 days I was there I saw a lady cleaning the outside property, Room was Clean, There was a microwave, coffee maker and a fridge. One complain is that the Window inside the Bathroom could be a bit more secure. Breakfast is very standard, fruits,... More

Complaints: Extremely Noisy, Smells like someone smoked in a non-smoking room, needs lots of TCL and throw out the see thru draperies, and bathroom needs attention also. I've been awake for hours and can't sleep due to train and Hwy 99 traffic. I would seriously think hard about staying here anytime in the future. Price was right but I'd rather... More

The other 3 star Merced hotels were sold out, so we tried the Best Western Plus. The front desk person was very friendly and helpful. When I got to the room, it was pretty basic but looked clean and neat. It did smell overwhelmingly of spray fragrance which was a little off-putting. I would have rather the room smell was... More

The wifi signal is so weak and slow, I could never do any real work at this hotel if I needed a fast wifi connection. I requested a quiet room and was given a corner room in the back corner of the property, but there is no such thing as quiet at this property. It is across the street from... More

Very disappointed with this BW. The two chairs were soiled and old. Carpet should have been replaced a couple years ago. No face cloths in bathroom. Quoted price on Tripadvisor was $79, she would not honor that quote. The room cost was $99. No HOT breakfast. Not sure why BW calls this a PLUS. Would avoid this place if you... More

This was the WORST experience ever at any motel that we have stayed at in the last 45 years of travel. Let me begin with compliments where they are certainly due. The booking experience was great and the folks at check-in were very pleasant and professional... and it went from a 10 to a 1 from there. This Best Western... More

The title says it all. Noise is from trains and highway. The motel is old and needs renovation. It's location is along a major highway and close to railroad tracks. It is not in the safest part of town either.

Booked a two-room suite with separate sitting/family area. Living area didn't exist, second room was tiny and spartan, looked nothing like the online photos on Best Western's site. When we said something about room not meeting our expectations, employee literally said, "Well, you can find another place in town," in a smart-alecky tone. Hot breakfast consisted of microwaveable breakfast sandwiches... More

We have been staying at this hotel, when in the Merced and Turlock area for the past 16 years. Always impressed with the maintenance and upkeep. Every year you can see the improvements over the last year, from solar panels on the roof, energy saving light switches, to new counter tops, sinks and faucets. Exterior areas are always clean and...

I was impressed that as close as it was to the freeway, the freeway noise didn't hinder our sleep. A couple of Harley's in the neighborhood behind the hotel woke us, but I'm sure that's not a frequent problem. Although the furniture and fixtures showed their age, the room was clean and bed was comfortable, and the Wifi free and... More
