I was very surprised to find this hotel in Merced. This hotel was very clean and a cozy. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. There are a few restaurants located near this place and the hotel has a nice modern feel to it.

I have stayed in this hotel many times and the performance is always great. The staff is so nice and professional and the hotel is always in great shape. I would not think of staying anywhere else when I am in the Merced area.
