Nothing to write home about, view wise. Older motel, crowded parking and pool is unused. The shining gem to this motel is the manager. Like a drill sarge, he made sure people used the proper parking, watched constantly so no shenanigans went on and made sure the rooms were clean, had plenty of towels and if you had a problem,...

The hotel is now called The Rivers. it is currently under renovation. There are several rooms totally renovated, some in various stages of renovation and some still not touched. I checked in for 12 days for work and was given a single in the non-renovated section. it was so small me my dog barely fit and it was stinky (i... More

Holy crap. That pretty much sums up this wonderful experience. I would rather live in a van down by the river. It is cheap, but at least they can clean the rooms. I guess it is hard to clean the floors when they are wet and moldy. The beds were not clean and there was one dirty, frayed through towel... More

Motel Mericana is a low-budget place, we paid $45 for a double. The room didn't smell too great, but after putting on the a/c it wasn't too bad. The cleaning isn't up to typical American standards - cigarette burns in the comforter & mattress, carpet vacuumed but stained, and it is a bit run down: empty swimming pool, weeds, but... More

After a long day;s drive, the Budget Host Mericana Motel hit the spot! A modest. older establishmnet; comfotable clean and bright rooms with the furniture arranged in a relaxing fashion; good place to walk the dogs. Too bad, though, that the outdoor swimming pool was not filled. And try the nearby Palms Supper Club for a good catfish dinne!
