Sure, it was cheap, but all in all a terrible example of a hotel from ABVI. I've stayed at other ABVI properties and they've been fine low cost hotels. I hope this one is an exception. The room was hot as hell on arrival and the AC never really cooled it down. For a non-smoking room it reeks of smoke... More

I made a resevation at America Best Value Inn Merced for 25th July but when we arrived there after nine hours travelling, the front desk clerks told me they had overbooking and that they could not give me a room. They did not even apologize, they did not book a room in another motel for us either, they said it... More

Not as expected and it looked da bit run down. The pool was nice but the condition of the room was not the best. I was afraid that the floor beneath me was going to crack any minute and the showers looked dirty.

The room had dirty walls and I spotted some bugs. They at least had cable or satellite tv, so the channel selection was ok. The neighborhood is bad. There was a very loud argument early in the morning outside of my room between my neighbors for the night, that went on and on in a language I didn't recognize. The... More

A bag containing very valuable materials (including my wallet) was stolen during my stay by someone reaching into the window of my room while I was on the bed in plain sight sleeping. No screen was available to add extra security. Strung-out people patrol the parking lot at all times of night. People not apparently associated with any room wander... More

We had a bad experience with our hotel dealer (hotwire), so what happened is that we arrived at the ABV in Merced at 9:30p and the room wasn't booked for us. Christina, the clerck, was extremely helpful to get us another hotel (hers was full), lending us her phone and everything. She was very patient with helping other (very unpleasant... More

I have stayed at ABVIs, so I know they are a pure economy chain. I selected this one in Merced as it was about 15 bucks a night cheaper than other similar-looking hotels in the area. Also several TA reviews indicated it was okay. PROs, a) Saved 15 bucks a night versus alternatives, b) Comfortable King bed, c) Breakfast included... More

I booked this motel for 7 nights prepaid thru a thrid party booking agency. The lobby is really nice upon arrival. The Desk Clerk was very nice as we were sooooooooooo tired after a 3000 mile Greyhound bus ride. The other reviews said bad area and unsafe. I find that incorrect. The area is fine and safe. No problem. The... More

One of the best values travelling Hwy 99. Great price for a big room (A/C, TV, WiFi, microwave and refrigerator included) opening to a well landscaped courtyard with a pool. The king size bed was very comfortable with extra pillows. Breakfast items included hot waffles, English muffins, fruit, cereal, juices and all the things you see at motels that are... More

For the less than $50 price tag, we didn't expect the hilton, and we didn't get it. What we got was a clean room. In addition, there was a decent, but not great continental breakfast and a pool we never used. We were just passing through Merced, and this was just the place we needed.
