“Good place to stay”
Reviewed 19 June 2013

We stayed here for one night on our way to Yosemite. It's a nice place. Comfortable and clean. Awesome breakfast is served early in the morning. We enjoyed our stay here. Location is also good. Right near highway and lot of diners closeby. We were able to relax well before starting to Yosemite. Yosemite valley is 2 hrs drive from here. So a good location to stay if you don't want to spend lots.

This Comfort Inn is a very nice motel and typical of most Comfort Inns. The room was nice and clean and the bed was excellent. The room included a refrigerator and microwave and everything worked. It was a warm early June day in Merced when I was there and the air conditioner was very powerful, cooling the room rapidly.

The breakfast was typical of Comfort Inn and also very nice.

The only problem, and it is common among nearly all lodging businesses in Merced, is that this Comfort Inn was located immediately adjacent to State Route 99, which is a 24-hour per day freeway. It is noisy. It is also adjacent to State Route 140 but traffic there slows way down after dark. Whereas most Comfort Inns with which I am familiar have interior hallways and can be quieter than buildings with exterior hallways, this motel has exterior hallways. (There is a picture on the Choice Hotels website that leads you to believe that this building has interior hallways but this is not so.) The rooms face exterior hallways that wrap around a pool/courtyard and there are large openings to the outside that allow noise in.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far from State Route 99 as possible.

I had to stay in Merced on this past memorial weekend to visit a family member. I read the reviews and it sounded okay. First I was terrified that I was going to be forced to sleep in the handicap room , 101#, located on the bottom floor, near the parking lot and office and pool and it was BAD. THen the very kind young women at the desk got us a better room on the second floor taking it from someone who had not arrived yet and it was already 11 at night . Sorry to them but thats the breaks. It turned out to be decent including a decent breakfast. Could have been worse.

Room Tip: get on the second floor with a window with a breeze.

Merced does not have many hotels. The ones that it does have are the standard chain hotels - from the Marriott at one end of the spectrum and the Motel 6 at the other end. We booked the Comfort Inn over the others because it had a good location close to the 99 freeway and had decent reviews on this site. The bad news - the water in the shower did not maintain pressure or temperature, the windows are single pane and allow road noise from the freeway, and there are few restaurants within walking distance. The good news - the rooms are safe, clean and comfortable, the staff at the front desk did accomodate us and did upgrade us because our room lacked the refrigerator and microwave called for when we booked on the web, and the breakfast was not bad with eggs and bacon on the menu.

If you do book a room in this town and have time, check out their local zoo and the aviation museum up the road in Atwater.

Room Tip: If noise bothers you, try to get a room away from the freeway. A room on the first floor also helps...

1) the freeway is nearby and noisy. Secret? Ask for a room at the rear of the hotel. It's much quieter.
2) the scrumptious breakfast consists of fresh and tasty items. Pastries, fruit, juices, yogurt, usual scrambled eggs, sausage etc. The waffles are made by pouring fresh batter onto the waffle iron. Delicious!
Coffee is strong and comparable to Starbucks. In short, eating breakfast in the hotel brings down the room price and leaves you full and satisfied.
3) Rooms are clean. Yes, it looks like an older hotel, but it's well maintained.
Looking for a place to eat lunch/ dinner? Try New China Cafe on W. Main St ( 2 miles ) Cheap price, huge quantity and very tasty food.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the rear of the hotel

We only stayed one night but the hotel staff was very friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. Everything I would expect from a Comfort Inn. There is a restaurant next store if you don't feel like driving around for somewhere to eat. The location makes this hotel a perfect place to stop on the way to or from Yosemite!!
