A friend of mine needed someone to put up a cash deposit in the amount of $50 which I did.When my friend checked out the next day, the girl at the front desk only gave back $35 saying a $5 wash cloth & a $10 hand towel was missing. So after a few trips there they agreed to accept replacements.... More

I had stayed at this location exactly one year ago. I had stayed here for a total of 12 days. BIG improvement since my last stay. The room was cleaner, the carpet seemed fresher, the restrooms a little clear and brighter. No bugs in my room this time. The courtyard seemed greener and nicer looking! The check in experience was... More

The overworked desk clerk managed to remain pleasant in spite of apparent booking screw ups, and bus loads of guests. The property is run down, every aspect of it needs repair. The rooms are large. We took one look at the breakfast and skipped it, very sparse. There are several restaurants within walking distance, including a Black Bear Diner.

The hotel is well located - between Sequoia NP and Yosemite NP. We booked two double rooms. Both rooms were large and clean. It is a great deal for the money you pay for it. Cheap, comfortable and complimentary continental breakfast with self-made waffles. If you are looking for a quality budget accommodation this is your place!

Nice overnight motel for the cheap price. My partner and I needed an inexpensive hotel to rest for one night after driving almost 10 hours from Oregon. This hotel served its purpose. No it’s not the Marriott or Hilton… but it was clean, quiet and basic. The hotel premises looked a little sketchy and the breakfast was just barely sufficient... More

We only wanted to spend night somewhere cheap on our way from Yosemite to San Francisco. This motel was one of the cheapest options in Merced and there's not much to say about it. It was alright for the price, nothing fancy. Great breakfast including fruit and fresh waffles stood out.

We were heading south and stayed here for the night. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Lots of hot water and love the bathroom sink outside the toilet and shower. Breakfast was good with waffles and the usual food items. Would definitely stay in this affordable hotel again if we were in the area.

During our trip cross country, this was the lowest priced motel, but very adequate rooms and furnishings. Marina was very welcoming and helpful. My husband used as a base to travel to Yosemite. Basic breakfast.
