The room had an over all clean look to it but with further looking the walls need to be wiped down more often. I was in a King size room and there was a huge area with nothing seemed too big for a one bed room. the GSR was very friendly upon arrival. She and the head housekeeper greeted us... More

I paid $70.39 which was far too much, I realise my mistake now. The rooms were meant to be renovated, this is some kind of trick as the rooms are very tatty. The renovation job was probably done by ten year old children suffering behavioural difficulties. They don't have carpet on the floor in the room. There's a reason for... More

Late at night, tired, I had already moved the luggage and dog into the room when I actually turned up the lights. I have no sense of smell, or I might have had a clue earlier.

Well, you get for what you pay for . It was a descent stay for my family (rooms and location) . If you need a place just to rest it is ok , decent price but if you are high maintenance this is not the place for you.

Walked into the room and noticed that the bed looked rumpled. Pulled the covers back and were completely grossed-out to see lots of long black hairs. Turned right around and went back and told the desk clerk that we weren't staying. She didn't seem surprised. Seedy looking people around. Hall smelled like pot. What a pit!

That was definitely the worst motel on our 3-weeks roadtrip. Dirty floor, dirty bed, dirty towels, clogged sink, non-smoking room stinking from the cigarette smoke... And no breakfast. I think there are another better options for accomodation in Merced. We decided to stay at Motel 6 because of their quality standards, but it was simply bad choice.

Just terrible. Laminate floors are a great idea when you want to hear absolutely every sound in the room all night long. With the a/c running all night long, I think I managed to cool the room down to 80 degrees. At 10am the housekeepers knocked and shouted through the door, asking me if I needed more time, despite the... More

Staff was very helpful and attentive our entire stay. We would definitely stay again. Only downfall was the people in the area seemed sketchy. We felt safe, but I wouldn't want my grandmother alone there. Staff made this place worth it, I felt comfortable.
