“Good Value”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We decided to stay here on a trip to Yosemite. The facility was well maintained and the front desk staff was very friendly. The room was a nice size but I was disappointed that it was a non-smoking room and it smelled of smoke. Luckily my son, who has asthma, didn't have a problem because of it. The bed was fairly comfy, and I would consider it a firm mattress. The room was clean, though the shower was dated (making it look unclean, but it was clean). There is a Starbucks, McDonald's, Subway and a few other places right next door. Overall I thought this was a good value and I would stay there again.

Dear Sassybratt,

I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Sorry that the room you stayed in smoked like smoke. I will pass along your remarks, to our staff as training to prevent this from happening again.

All in all we hope to see you again soon.

We stopped for one night in this hotel so we could get an early start heading to Yosemite. Although the hotel is near the freeway, it was quiet. We had two rooms: one had a king bed and the other had two queen beds. Both rooms were clean and spacious. The towels were clean. The queen bedroom had a microwave and a small fridge. The king bedroom didn't have them but was $5 cheaper. The shower was kind of weak but acceptable. We could not close our bathroom door from inside the bathroom. When one of us pulled from the outside, the door could latch. Our room number was 219. You can see from the picture the gap of the open door. Also, the bathroom has some wear and tear. I still think it is good value as long as you don't set your expectations too high.

What a great way to end the day! My room was large and very spacious. The king size bed was very comfortable. Furnishings included a two seated couch, coffee table, regular table and chairs, TV, and a very nice bathroom and vanity area. There was no fridge or microwave. That seems to be typical of Motel 6. I rarely, if ever, need them, so it really isn't a factor for me. One thing that I wish Motel 6 would provide is a box of tissues in the bathroom. All in all a very nice place to stop off at, and right off the highway too. Cost, including tax, under $50.00.

I'm am so happy that you enjoyed your stay here with us at Motel 6 Merced. Thank you for all the wonderful things you had to say about our hotel.

Currently we do not finish tissues in our guest rooms. I am so sorry that we didn't have those for you. We do however have several rooms that do offer micro/fridges. Next time your in the area please come back to stay with us. And ask the front desk staff for a room with a micro/fridge if you need one.

Thanks again ELHS220

The rooms are quite clean and spacious, something you would expect in a higher priced facility. Access is just off Route 99 and parking facilities allow for large trailers. Will return there often.

Room Tip: I prefer the upstairs (second floor) room.

The rooms are clean and the hallways have recently seen a facelift with a fresh coat of orange paint. There are no funky smells, so that's a plus, and there is easy access to Subway, Starbucks and D'Angelos, a decent restaurant in the Ramada. The pool is clean and better than the one at Ramada. Try to get in a room on the second floor toward the back to avoid noise.

Room Tip: Go for the second floor, toward the end of the hall for less noise.

While traveling with my young children in December I found Motel 6 Merced to be a wonderful place to stay. We arrived late after a long day of driving and the staff was very attentive to get us into a room quickly and went out of their way to get us extra linens that we needed. They were friendly, warm and helpful. The room was in very good shape, clean, comfortable. The rate we got for the room was the best on the whole trip. I highly recommend them.
