Merced day

You get what you pay for. Average hotel, but location is a few blocks from downtown. Staff was really good. Free Ice dispener is included with your, so no extra pay, (this was June 2014). It matters when it summer in the Central Valley. Bus passes by the hotel and the bus central location is a few blocks away.

Nice place for insect collectors

I was able to collect more than half a dozen varieties of insects in the comfort of my own room! I suggest you also use a shoe cover to protect the ancient Jurassic dirt and soil trapped in the carpet.

Inexpensive night's stay for traveler

Inexpensive but clean room, with early breakfast available. Good for a night's sleep while in transit. Amenities are very basic but bed was comfortable and air-conditioning worked just fine on hot day.
