Merced is a convenient 70 miles (1.5 hrs) from Yosemite. We found the Holiday Inn at Merced affordable. The fact that they serve hot breakfast in the morning makes it... More

This hotel is in a good location for business travellers and families visiting the local area or heading to Yosemite. The staff were helpful, professional and friendly. The good morning breakfast is good for getting travellers ready for their day. I will definitely stay here again when traveling through this area.

Sausage was not very good. This was not the fault of the very nice lady who was working there. All of the other items provided were good and fresh.... More
