My 4 star rating is based on my specific needs and expectations. These are, an inexpensive place to sleep on ou way to Yosemite. Hotels near the park entrance are in the $200 plus range. This hotel is just over $40!!! Our intent is literally to spend 8 hours here. Safe, clean, reasonable. It meets all. Notes, - The room...

We stopped for the night at this hotel, being the only available hotel on a summer weekend. We were assigned to a smoking room as there were no other rooms available. The first thing we noticed was that the room was very dirty. The carpets were stained, the bathroom floor and tub discolored, and even the bed sheets had stains...

The location by the freeway is convenient but unfortunate due to the incredible amount of road noise. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Ask for a room as far away from the freeway as possible! Rooms were nicely updated for the price.

We chose this place as our base for a long weekend in Yosemite. We arrived after midnight and when I tried to enter the lobby, the door was locked. I was required to use a security pass-thru under a glass window which made it nearly impossible to communicate. I realized later that this wasn't the best part of town to...

Actually it was a really great choice to stay here. Liked how clean and finished the rooms were. Perfect place to break up the journey to Yosemite . Very reasonable price too. Good channels on tv and perfect parking right outside your room. Try the BBQ pit for dinner . Fantastic BBQ !

Stayed here for two nights since we went up to the Yosemite park. It's about a 2 hour drive. The motel room was very spacious and beds were comfortable. The wifi was free and I was surprised how fast it was. The only complaints I have is that the towels are a little small and the bathroom door handle was...

My family and I stayed at the Americas Best Value Inn Merced for one night. The room was quite big and clean. The bathroom was nice and clean. The walls of the Inn are a little thin, you could hear your neighbours quite good. The breakfast was okay. Sometimes you get kicked off the WiFi connection for no reason. The...

Checked in at 2pm to find out that somehow Booking dot com had reserved 3 rooms for me. When I told lady at the desk that I needed only one she stated had I come a little later in the day she wouldve had to charge me for 3 rooms. No, I have a confirmation for 1 room only. The...

I had stayed at this location exactly one year ago. I had stayed here for a total of 12 days. BIG improvement since my last stay. The room was cleaner, the carpet seemed fresher, the restrooms a little clear and brighter. No bugs in my room this time. The courtyard seemed greener and nicer looking! The check in experience was...

The overworked desk clerk managed to remain pleasant in spite of apparent booking screw ups, and bus loads of guests. The property is run down, every aspect of it needs repair. The rooms are large. We took one look at the breakfast and skipped it, very sparse. There are several restaurants within walking distance, including a Black Bear Diner.
