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

The room carpet was severely stained as were the two chairs. This was not a housekeeping issue, it was filthy old carpets and worn out dirty chairs. My wife refused to sit in the chairs. I would not stay here if it were free..

We were driving from Seattle to Los Angeles. Merced was a convenient stop. B/W Staff was professional and personable. Room was spacious, well lighted, neat and clean. Location is about 1/4 mile from a very nice Carrows restaurant. Downside: Location is between the freeway and the railroad racks. BUT, the freeway sounds all but disappear by around 11PM and the...
