“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

One of the best run Best Western's that I have stayed in. Room, service, breakfast, friendliness/professionality were outstanding. The only small negative is that the location is right beside HWY 99, and it is a little noisy.

This hotel is right next to a very busy motorway and so noisy. The exterior of the hotel looks very seedy and had we not booked and so lost our deposit we would have never stayed. The bathroom was very poorly decorated and the room very dated in its decoration with uneven walls. It was clean but quite small. Breakfast was an unexpected pleasure, more thanmost hotels we have stayed in at similiar cost.

Thank you for your comments concerning your stay at our Best Western Plus Inn here in Merced. I appreciate your taking the time to write and hope you will accept my apologies for any inconvenience you experienced.

We are aware that, although, it is convenient being right off the freeway it also has some disadvantages. This is why we have taken steps such as installing double pane windows, solid wooden doors and providing earplugs to our guest to ensure they have the most pleasant stay possible.

I am disappointed we failed to give you the fine accommodations we strive for with all our guests – the type we pride ourselves in.

We appreciate your patronage and hope you will stay with us at the Best Western Plus Inn the next time you are in Merced. I can assure you we will do everything we can to make your stay a comfortable and happy one.

Right off Highway 99. They did not say anything at the front desk, however ear plugs and a note in the room. bathroom had low pressure and a toilet that barely worked. Be careful in traveling downtown an obvious gang dominated neighborhood. I suggest traveling closer to the University area for dinner.

It could be that I had the smallest,most cluttered room in the place resembling an old 60's room rental. Too much furniture and stacked rather than placed. Bathroom extremely small and closet area very messy. The website misleads that this is a quiet classy place. It is right on HWY 99 and noisy. They offer ear plugs. Yeah right. Trains reminded me of the movie, "My Cousin Vinny"

It's a good clean Motel. The price is correct for the service. It's a little noisy for the close hwy (will be a problem if you have a light sleep) and have a too little space for breakfast, but it's in a good position between San Francisco and Yosemite Park. Merced is a little town where you can find anything and for us was the first step after fly to San Francisco (about 2h and 30 min of hwy).

My wife and I decided t take the twins on a long summer vacation. We started in Arizona, and worked our way back up until we got back to the bay. Being on a budget, we decided to stay at local properties and stay away from bigger name hotels. We decided to spend a little more on our last stop so we chose a Best Western. For a bigger name hotel we were happy, nice rooms and a good pool. Kids loved the big breakfast.
