Had to take a trip to Merced California for business. Upon arrival at the Best Western, which was located right off the but was hard to figure out how to get there, it looked like a nice hotel. Once I checked in and drove to the room I found that the layout of the parking lot had much to be... More

This was a one night stop for us on our way to Yosemite National Park. The good things first: staff was friendly and helpful, complimentary breakfast was good. Now the reason for the below average rating: the hotel itself was too noisy -- noise of the airconditioning, freeway noise and railway noise early in the morning, parking lot is very... More

I had a nice, quiet and comfortable room. Internet worked very well. Staff was friendly and helpful in applying my discount coupon. Breakfast was reasonable, though breakfast area was rather small and can make seating a challenge during peak times.

The motel is right alongside a freeway and main railway line. Our room was nearest the freeway and sleeping was impossible due to noise. The accomodation is tired and dated. Restaurants are a good drive away within an uninspiring town centre, so not ideal for an overnight stay, most of which were closed on the monday night we stayed forcing... More

You will be disappointed if you stay here. I have stayed at many Best Western Hotels and they have always been pleasant, this one was not. First of all they say it is a BW Plus.

Leave on the A/C. We arrived at 9:30 and were up for nearly 4 hours after arrival because it was so hot in the room.

If comparing BW Merced with Big Bear Lake Chateau and BW Gilroy, it is a 3. If comparing BW Merced with BW 29 Palms ( consider the worst), it is a 6. It would be a 6 if the freeway and train tracks (and noise) were not so close to the hotel.

For a pet-friendly hotel, it does not provide anywhere for pets to relieve themselves. There is a very dry, very weedy lot on the other side of the next hotel, but our dog does not like stepping on burrs. We did find a hotel with grass but had to walk several feet to get to it.
