Stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite - about a 2 hour drive away. This was a very nice, clean hotel with a heated pool and spa. Breakfast was enough to keep the whole family happy. De Angelos restaurant was close by which offered some great Italian food and you also got a 10% discount if you showed your room key. The free wifi was fast and reliable, staff happy and friendly.

room clean, food great (breakfast free), two elevators so never had to wait, free paper each day, great internet signal - employees all friendly and never seemed too busy to answer a question or say hello/goodbye

Room Tip: ask for top floor to miss the upstairs trample sounds

This place is clean, well maintained, and nice. The beds are comfortable. WiFi is pretty slow here, but I haven't found a hotel in town that has decent "high-speed" WiFi, so no surprise.

Breakfast has an awesome pancake machine, as well as many other choices. The workout room is adequate with a variety of equipment.

The hotel staff is helpful and friendly.

We were in Merced for our son's wedding. We were pre-wedding stressed, we'd driven from Missouri over 2 1/2 days, were road weary and ready to relax and prepare for the festivities.
We found a coupon for this location and saw they were rated well on trip advisor and we were not disappointed that we'd reserved a room at this hotel. I can't think of anything negative to say about our stay. The breakfast was very good, the room clean, staff efficient and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great Holiday Inn Express with friendly staff. It is conveniently located right off of I-5. The room I had was quiet (on the backside of the hotel, first floor). The morning breakfast was in a large very clean room and the staffer made sure that the food items and coffee were refilled as needed.

We stay here for business frequently. I was concerned about freeway noise because of the location but the next door Hampton Inn was built between the Holiday Inn and the freeway and effectively blocks most of the noise. This Holiday inn Express has all of the features of the HI express brand but also adds superior service to the plus features. During the summer this hotel is a good jumping off point for a trip to Yosemite Nat'l park. The rooms themselves have good sound proofing a real puss at a hotel that has many vacationers with children staying there. We need to be at work early in the AM and we really appreciate the hotel enforcing a "Quite time"in the evening. We also appreciate the no smoking policy of this hotel. None of the rooms are smoking. We find at hotels that have "smoking rooms" that the entire hotel ends up smelling of smoke, because of a few people smoking.
Sean the manager of this hotel runs a "happy crew", he pitches right inn when the hotel gets busy. The staff reflects his work ethic. We are recognized as Platinum members and normally receive an upgrade and are always recognized as valued customers.

Pretty much a run of the mill Holliday Inn Express, but the staff is excellent and very helpful.
