Check in was fast, the clerk at the desk was VERY helpful. The room was beautifully appointed. The breakfast in the morning was really quite good. There was your usual continental plus eggs, sausage, biscuits. We were only here for a night traveling from San Francisco to the Yosemite area, and it served our purposes very well. We would stay here again.

Perfect for what we needed (to stop at Merced to break up the drive from Yosemite to the coast). Great hotel - good price and good location . 24-hour laundromat and small swimming pool. Very large, clean room (all looked new). Spacious, free parking and very friendly and helpful receptionist. Small 24-hour store for snacks next to the reception.

I loved this hotel. It's brand new and very clean. Staff was very helpful and nice. I would stay here again when we are in the area. I will not comment on breakfast - it's the same hot breakfast you can get free anywhere. Just don't expect too much. The property is well maintained and very helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone!!!

Our second visit to Merced to drop off son at the University and first stay here. Booked online as the price was the best, and since it was new construction I thought it would be fine. It was lovely! Fabulously friendly front desk reception at check in, and again later when we asked for a dinner recommendation. Great air conditioning, plush carpet, very clean and quiet! Breakfast is included and actually offered eggs and bacon! The only downside was the wireless internet was as slow as molasses! Finally gave up waiting for page to load. There was no ice machine on the second floor, but a quick trip down the stairs was no problem. We will definitely be back (and the UC Merced rate makes it a no-brainer!) soon!

I have never been disappointed by a Holiday Inn Express. This one was no different. Rooms were very clean and the front desk was friendly. We only stayed one night on our way to Yosemite. Really nice TV's. Breakfast was better than other HIE's. I don't remember any having warm food - which this one had.

Stopped over at this brand new HI Express during a California road trip, and it lives up to its previous reviews. Great front desk service, clean and large rooms. Aircon/heating system modern and quiet. Free WiFi at good speed. Location is just off hwy99, but noise isnt an issue. Within 5 mins walk is starbucks, BK, MacD etc etc. For $110, it was spot on. Nice little outside pool and excercise room were handy too.

Very nice stay and far exceeded our expectations. This is definitely one of the best Holiday Inn Express Hotels we've stayed in. The only thing we can say that's negative is the water pressure wasn't really good, but ............ the hotel was nice, clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. They had everything including lots of hot cinammon rolls and omelets, biscuits and gravy, everything. We'd definitely stay here again.
