Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Easy access of the freeway and smooth check-in and check-out. We were assigned a large room with king bed as requested. Room was comfortable and clean with complimentary wifi. There was a work-out room and a nice pool with hot tub. Several restaurants close by. Excellent complimentary breakfast. We had a small problem on the morning of check-out, but this was quickly resolved by the manager to our satisfaction. Overall, an excellent stay.

This is a beautiful, modern, quiet and very clean hotel. Great rooms and a very good breakfast. Close to the highways for easy commute, yet it didn't disturb our sleep at all.
We highly reccomend it to anyone traveling to Merced, CA. Excellent value!

Our kids live in the area so over the past few years, we have stayed here several times. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with lots of towels. Beds smell fresh. The staff is always friendly, especially Francisco and the lady who manages the breakfast room. Once we had a slight emergency and asked if we could possibly just leave our baggage in a room at 10:30 AM and they very nicely prepared a room for us. There is quite a variety in the breakfast menu so whatever your dietary restrictions you can make a nice meal. I agree with other reviews that sometimes the fresh fruit is only bananas and they are on the ripe side. One downside is the location of the hotel is not near any "real" restaurants, fast food only and a dinner house in an adjoining hotel. We often stay at Holiday Inn Express locations and find most of them to be very nice, but this one is a little extra nice.

Room Tip: We try to stay on the first floor and have never had an issue with noise. We like to open our windo...

Thank you for taking the time to describe your experiences at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced! We appreciate the feedback regarding the fruit selection, and will work with our vendor to ensure that we are getting oranges an apples consistently. If you don't mind a simple restaurant, let us recommend the great family owned Mexican restaurant a half block away the next time you're in town!

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!
