Recent guest reviews

Every time we come to Merced to visit our family, we always check in here because it is nearby our family's home. Also, we are comfortable with the rooms. Its clean, the beds are soft, love the free WiFi and free breakfast. The staffs are very nice too. There is a small convenient store on he side and fast food resto across.

We founded cockroach in the room, and we expected nonsmoking room and that room smells to cigarette.

Some rooms are decent but there are some that I would walk in then back out headed towards the front to ask for another room. I've had no trouble getting another room that I would accept. Its OK and what makes it better is the price. I can find a bunch more in the area and have that are way over priced and way worse. Overall its decent and affordable. Its pretty quite for a popular spot lately, u could rest easy without being disturbed and you be sure u got the best deal. If your picky and can afford $100 a night then stick with the bigger hotels.

I really can't complain. Its well worth it considering how much we pay. Its way better then most in the county and the lowest rates.

We chose this hotel because of it's proximity to Yosemite, but we were very pleased with such a random choice! This is much better than your average ABVI! The staff was wonderful, and the room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was simple but plentiful, and they kept their eyes on the guests and refilled things without having to be asked. The pool was also clean and inviting. We liked it so much we came back for another night!

The room is not clean. Smell of smoking can be noticed in the non-smoking room. Air conditioner does not work. This was our nightmare in Merced during hot July days.

staffs rude hotel manager rude an threatening rooms are not really clean

the hotel was good for the price it was pretty cheap. the place it was at is on the ghetto side of town but the area is gated which made me feel alittle safer but yet it was still ghetto. i would reccomend it if you need a cheap place to sleep at.

The hotel room was fresh and clean. The staff was courteous, and thr hotel was walking distance from all we needed grocery, convience, gas, laundry, and a couple of fast food.spots. Best Value for the price. In more ways than i expected !!

Quite old facility.The staff was friendly, but the room was a little bit crampy

i think orbtiz has better way to select the hotel they deal with. so overall, I have more trust book through them. the hotel is little bit old for furniture and etc but for the price we pay for , it is well worth it.

Scary! I was traveling wuth my teenage son to visit the college campus in Merced. Online the place looked nice and clean. The area at not did not look inviting and the parking lot by our room was very dark. Our room was facing the side of the road and all.night you can hear all the cars driving by. The shower tub was discusting dirty and the AC was not working properly.

I did not like the hotel. The hotel room was not clean. The bath tub looked old & not very clean. The room did not look like the room in the pictures from their website. The microwave was on top of the restroom sink. I asked for a non-smoking room, but the room smelled like smoke. There was not a good thing about the room at all. Also the room did not like sanitary. And the pool was not filled up when I got there & the temperature was really high.

It was a great place to stay at better then other places I stayed before,

A great budget value stones throw from freeway. I got a nice clean large room with fridge and micro with a few rough edges - nothing that can't be overlooked at this price point. Decent breakfast options. Nothing great but gets the job done without burning a hole in your pocket.

It was good until we went to bed, then my wife said something wrong with the sheets, well I took back the sheets and here is a twin mattress pad on kingsize bed and two queen size sheets. Worse night ever,

Well, everything pretty good besides a missundestanding with the front desk everything went pretty smooth.

This motel was a great price, however the train was very noisy all night along with the added freeway noise. The room was definatley not as pictured, with old furniture and dirty carpet. The bathroom window had no latch or lock.

Well, it was pretty great meeting up with that hot woman. Everytime I pass by that place I always have flashbacks. I remember that place fondly... good times.

The front desk staff (Nora) was very helpful and friendly. Location very easy access from/to freeway. Appreciated the convenience.
