Whenever you are in Merced, do yourself a favor and stay with Jackie and Jerry at Serenity Gardens.
I have travelled extensively and, throughout the years, have never encountered a more welcoming and friendly place. Jackie's breakfast is divine, changes daily, and takes your personal preferences or dietary needs into consideration. She even made me an apple pie one day, and that was in the afternoon.
There are only 5 stars on Tripadvisor, but they deserve more.
