Stayed here to visit the nearby wildlife refuges. The location is not convenient for Yosemite, but you could use this as a stopover if you want to go there as well. ROOM: The hotel is clean - the rooms were well done and the bathroom was nice. Although the room wasn't a suite it was very general in space. They...

Thank you for sharing! Your mention that you will stay again next time makes us feel like we just scored a touchdown with one second left on the clock; can you tell that I just watched a big college national championship football game? It truly is rewarding to hear that our team succeeded in making your stay pleasant, and we...

I've stayed here many times as I have family in Merced and they frequently have other houseguests so I just keep it simple and book a room here. It's a great hotel: clean, rooms well appointed and friendly staff. The breakfast that is included is pretty good, not stellar. On this visit the pancake machine was broken and that was...

Thank you Gregory for choosing to return to Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced for your lodging needs. I'm sorry the pancake machine was not working; it is certainly one of our iconic breakfast standards and I can imagine your disappointment. I will work to ensure this does not reoccur. And I'll be sure to purchase some more corkscrews! Sean...

This was our first stay at this hotel and we were very pleased! The girl at the front desk was phenomenal. I thought I would remember her name but I can't think of it! The room was spacious & clean! We would definitely stay here again!

Stayed two nights. The room was clean and very spacious. The area was quiet and convenient to the freeway. But what really stood out was the staff; VERY nice, especially Maria, the diligent and kind woman overseeing the continental breakfast. She greeted us each morning with a smile and made sure food was ample and if we needed anything. Made...

Stayed here four nights while working in the area. The building is modern, has an elevator, and is clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. The wifi was exceptionally good, the only irritant being the standard chain/hotel/motel login and password routine that has to be done daily. A pain if you travel with multiple devices i.e....

Friendly staff, comfortable and quiet room, and a good breakfast (surprisingly good omelettes) - it was a very nice stay. Many thanks! Close to the highway and within minutes of where I needed to be. I will stay here again.
