“Really a holiday inn with everything you expect”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The Holiday inn in Merced is a holiday inn you find all over the US. Clean, new and on a good spot if you dont mind being quite close to thge highway.
We didn't had a problem with noise by the way. A problem is that there are only 2 restaurants nearby, an Italien ons together with the neighboor Ramada and a mexican one.
The italien has decent foot, good pasta and pizza.
The moment we were there is was crowded so we had to wait a long time. There is a patio.

The hotel has a pool and the breakfast is better then elsewhere.

Room Tip: pick a room on the side, tell the front desk that you want to be as far away from the road as possib...

Stayed a night while passing through town on the way back to SF. Hotel appears pretty new. Nice beds, good tv and internet reception. High ceilings in the rooms is a nice touch and makes them appear larger.

Typical good breakfast with large seating area.

The area does seem a little sketchy. There is a closed up bowling alley right next door. I never felt unsafe though while on the property.

We were in the building further away from the highway, but you could still hear road noise without the heat/ac on. We ended up turning on the fan function all night which covered the noise.

Room Tip: Get an even numbered room in the building furthest away from the highway. It is the building with t...

I had trouble sleeping here due to the beds being too soft. The check-in went well without any problems and it was quiet enough for me but the beds need to be reviewed for replacement? I had no other negative issues while staying here. Got my wake-up call as promised.

Thank you very much for sharing your experience. We are sorry our beds were not to your liking! Typically any feedback we receive regarding our beds is quite positive, with some guests asking us what model they are because they are interested in purchasing one. It would be our pleasure to provide you with a bedboard, should you be in the area again, if you wouldn't mind requesting in advance. We certainly want you to be as comfortable here as possible, so that you are refreshed and ready for your day!

The staff was friendly and the room was large. The bathroom was large and had plenty of hot water, but was slightly under pressure. Bed was comfortable. The pool and hot tub were outside and the exercise room was acceptable. Heard road noise, but didn't keep me awake any. Had the typical HIE buffet breakfast and was pleasing to the tummy!

We stayed at this Hotel a couple of weeks ago for the Kiki Raina Tahiti Fete Merced 2014 which is a Tahitian dance competition, Because of this event they offered us a good deal. Hotel is nice and clean, my kids really enjoyed the pool at night, overall this property is really nice but what stood out the most was the Man that was taking care of the breakfast area, He was a latino man I would say around his 50s, he was wonderful, he keep checking all, making sure there was plenty of everything, he was running back and forth to the kitchen bringing warm food, when we were leaving he gave my kids a bag with a couple of bananas and apples and said to us, " Have a nice trip back home, God bless you". This are the kind of gestures that make you stay worth it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that faces the front street, behind the hotel is a railroad and at night you can h...

I do business in the Merced CA area and have stayed at a few other spots, now I only stay here.

This is a new property and is very well maintained. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. A nice little pool and hot tub area for relaxing in the evening. The beds are great and, my measure of a hotel, the air conditioner absolutely kicks it! (Yes, I love a chilly room to sleep in.)

The only two minor downsides are the water pressure is a bit low and the breakfast isn't the greatest. My last stay the fresh fruit selection, was... well.. not so fresh. Both very minor issues and it won't stop me from returning next time.
