My husband and I did work in their conference room on April 11 and 12 and April 24 and 25th, and we are never disappointed with the level of care we get, especially from Louis, who sets up our room, and Maria, who provides us with refreshments. They both check in with us each time to see if we have...

Rooms are very clean. Hotel is easy to find and accessible to everything. The staff are warm, friendly and accommodating. Breakfast choices are excellent. Veronica made sure we get good breakfast to start our day. We found our second home.

I was happy with my check-in process and stay, however, the only thing that needs improvement is the amount of staff that is at the front desk. The front desk worker was very attentive and welcoming, but she was all by herself taking in calls and people to check-in.

This hotel is a two hour drive away from the San Francisco Bay Area and is a good place to stop at if you want break the journey to Yosemite into two parts. We left the Bay Area at 8pm (on a weekday) after the traffic subsided, reached this location at 10pm and spent the night at this location. We...

The very best part of this hotel is Maria, the lovely woman who is in charge of the complimentary breakfast that is provided every morning for guests. She does everything, from cooking up delicious breakfast items to keeping everything spotless and gleaming. And she greets us with a smile and cheerful welcome every single time. We always look forward to...

It was around 1 a.m., I was driving down the 99 fwy and couldn't stand it anymore; I needed sleep. I pulled over in/on "Motel Circle" or something like that, and came upon this hotel.

Veronica of the banquet and breakfast staff was outstanding. She not only single handily handled the breakfast crowd, but managed to keep our conference room organized and supplied with refreshments. Front desk was also helpful and recommended several excellent local restaurants.

We enjoyed our stay for the night. The breakfast was on par with like hotels. The room was very clean and smoke free. Location to Yosemite was what brought us to Merced. The only thing I didn't like was the auto close hinges on the bathroom. I realize it conflicts with the entry door swing. Thank you Mike & Kim
