The hotel is well located in Escalon, near restaurants, shops and other amenities. Excellent hotel for business travel on a budget, good WiFi connection...

Hotel Marela is very quaint. It feels like a big house. LOL! Very nice. My room was on the top floor. There's no elevator so anyone with mobility issues should ask for a room on the main floor. There is a small pool, the breakfast buffet was great and the service was great! The room was a good size! I...

We stayed here for 3 nights for a conference nearby at CIFCO. The room was fine and the staff helpful for off site services and directions. The breakfast was not anything to look forward to and we ate elsewhere for other meals. During our stay another traveler had his room broken into and his Ipad stolen. The pool is not...
