“Great place to stay in Merced, CA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

I travel a lot and always like to let people know when there is a great hotel in the area. I stayed 10 days at this hotel and was not disappointed. They have excellent food, staff and rooms. Just to name a few of the people that went above and beyond: Amber, Liza, Suzanne and Sylvia in the food court, Diana, Nicole and AnnaBelle in the housekeeping dept., Carlos at the front desk was always upfront and center and willing to help in anyway he could. We also had Enrique and Gil who keep the property clean and up to par. Thank you all for a great stay.

Room Tip: There are rooms on the first floor that have back paitos out to the pool area.

This is a clean, nice hotel. My only complaint is that the noise from the highway next door and the railroad is pretty loud. But all the hotels in Merced are next to highway 99, and you can hear the train from most of Merced, so that's par for the course. Just bring a set of ear plugs, or ask to stay on the north side of the hotel (That won't take care of the train noises, though).

The real standout for me was the staff at the hotel "restaurant" (it's more like a Starbucks counter where you can order light food), however. They were really friendly and actually went out of their way to make something for me that wasn't on their menu. Thanks Delia and Sonija - you put a smile on my face!

Room Tip: Book on the north side so you stay away from the highway 99 noise

I'd have to say, staying at this hotel was a great option. The guests I always seemed to meet while in the lobby as well as the front desk staff were friendly. And Suzanne, Amber and Delia in the Cafe were superstars. They were on top of the food and ensured my coffee and orders were perfect. The pool here could be a little better... but being that it's Merced, it's acceptable.

The staff at this hotel are very family and accomendating. Delia and Amber in the cafe are friendly, nice and provid prompt service. The hotel is clean, no pets(!) and comfortable. The pool is clean and the spa hot. Clearly the best facility in Merced.

Clean room. Comfortable beds. Excellent service. We left really early in the morning and the lady at the bistro, Delia, was so friendly and helpful. We brought our own cereal etc for breakfast and even though it wasn't open yet she gave us bowls an spoons to use and was very cheerful. We'll stay here every time

My husband and I always stay at this Courtyard when we travel through central California. It is a clean, reliable, hospitable place. The hotel is conveniently located next to highway 99 with easy access for motorists. Starbucks coffee is available on-site and a Bistro restaurant offers a wide
assortment of food selections. Kudos to Delia of the Bistro staff who always greets us cordially and prepares our meals and drink with care. The front-desk staff is hard-working and makes us feel as family during our visits.

Room Tip: Rooms on the lobby-side of hotel do not face the highway and are a quieter option.

Perfect place to stop when making a day visit to Yosemite. Large comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff and a decent breakfast selection in the Bistro. Also has Carrows within 5 minutes walk if you need more choice. Sleep quality marked down only because of the noisy neighbours walls are a little thin but that shouldn't put anyone off staying.
Breakfast service from Amber and Sonia was excellent and fast.
Highly recommended.
