5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We grew up in the Merced area and return often to visit friends and family. We have stayed in several hotels in the area. The selection is limited but this Holiday Inn Express is by far the best. The staff are always so professional and rooms are very nice. I travel a lot on business and hav lots of experience with hotels all over the contry and this one would be as good as it gets in this price range.

Had a wonderful experience! The properly was very clean, accessible and the staff was kind generous and went above and beyond the service I have experienced in other moderately priced hotels. The breakfast was excellent, and offered hot and cold foods that surpassed the express breakfast moniker.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from the highway side. If you are disabled or have mobility issues ask for a room...

This is a perfectly nice place to rest up when traveling down highway 5. The clerk was very helpful and worked to find us a good rate. The rooms are nice, clean and we slept like babies (unusual for us). We were tired after a long driving day thru Sequoia National Park and this place makes a perfect place to rest up.

Every other year, we spend Thanksgiving in Merced. This hotel was much better than the old HIExpress, (which is now the Comfort Inn) bigger rooms, better security, separate breakfast area with better food. One drawback, if visiting Merced itself rather than passing through, is that it's on the edge of town. The Marriott, where we have also stayed, is nicer (but more expensive) with a better location.

Room Tip: Suggest 3rd floor away from elevator and not facing the freeway. For $15 more you can get a suite w...

Yes, I'm a fan of Holiday Inn Express hotels and this one was no exception. Large, spacious, clean room, comfortable beds, wonderful assortment of breakfast food, consistent WiFi connection. Great stay overall!

I and my wife stayed in a room with a king sized bed on the third floor. It was large, comfortable, very clean, and quiet. In addition, it had bright lights and a fast wifi connection. There was an easy chair as well as a desk, all well lit, and the bathroom was spacious with good water pressure. The breakfast area was also large and well set up, with cereals, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, and other pastries, and it was all good. Easy access off and on the 99 freeway. Pleasant staff and a good value for our money.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and got a little road noise from the freeway. The motel has elevators.

I have reviewed this hotel before and gave it positive remarks. This is undoubtedly the best hotel in Merced. The staff is friendly. The room is clean and fresh. The breakfast is better than most. The wifi is faster than any other area hotel I've stayed in (although still not as fast as my home connection). There are a couple other decent places to stay in Merced, one even higher rated on some sites, but in my opinion the Holiday Inn Express stands head and shoulders above them.
