That was definitely the worst motel on our 3-weeks roadtrip. Dirty floor, dirty bed, dirty towels, clogged sink, non-smoking room stinking from the cigarette smoke... And no breakfast. I think there are another better options for accomodation in Merced. We decided to stay at Motel 6 because of their quality standards, but it was simply bad choice.

Staff was very helpful and attentive our entire stay. We would definitely stay again. Only downfall was the people in the area seemed sketchy. We felt safe, but I wouldn't want my grandmother alone there. Staff made this place worth it, I felt comfortable.

I have checked out all the cheap hotels in the area as I come here every 2 or 3 months and this one is, in my opinion, the best, and that includes the other Merced Motel 6 which is not as nice as this one. Now I just stay here. It is convenient to the freeway, a good value for... More

My entire family stayed during our vacation. 4 separate rooms. 1 room had half eaten chicken wings and sneakers left in a corner. Our shower had hair, a used razor cartridge and used soap scattered all over. There was a bug that refused to leave my pillow. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable but housekeeping needs some work.
