Well I stayed her a few days ago, we had a room that was facing the free way. Check in was through a bullet proof window at night, not out of the ordinary but a little unnerving. Of course on the way up the to the room you have some guy just hanging out at the top of the stairs with his room open behind him and a some other dude looking for a light at the bottom of the stairs. The room itself had a slight odor to it, not bad but it was just another mark against the room. The bed an old and lumpy mattress on a box spring on the ground. The sheets were old but clean. The blanket was more like an old surplus army blanket... Remember to bring your own shampoo and soap. They only provide one little bar of soap. There wasn't any light over the sink either. The towels weren't bad though. I've been to places with much worse towels, be sure to only use them when you need to. There's only 2 big towels and maybe 2 hand towels. As far as noise goes it was like the door was open, you can hear every car rolling through there, also a train runs fairly close to the hotel as well. Bring ear plugs.
The Denny's was right across the parking lot so that was nice. Bottom line is, next time in need to spend the night in Merced I'll spend the extra $10 or $20 and find somewhere else.
