“Welcoming and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is a very friendly, clean hotel. To confirm other reviews - Manny the manager couldn't be more helpful. He rang us to check all was ok with the room as he hadn't seen us around to ask personally. When we said we had trouble with a light he was there in seconds to help. We feel we made a really good choice with this hotel.

Value for money this is an excellent motel. Room large and clean. The manager Manny is very helpful, providing details on good restaurants and has gone out of his way to help organise our next nights accommodation. Breakfast is a bonus. The majority of the motels are all side by side in Merced, so location the same for all.

This hotel was older but was in a great location. The young man at the front desk was really great. He was friendly and helpful. The room was older, but was clean. The continental breakfast was very sparse.

The Rodeway is very clean and you get what you need for a good nights sleep. The location isn't the best but you forget that with its great customer service. All in all it was a great stay for a great price!
