Great location near freeway and in town. Clean and spacious room. Very nice breakfast. We stopped en route from LA to Northern California. It was a great choice. Our family was very comfortable in the room.

We would stay here again, but it is a little run down and we had some technical problems with the wi-fi which the staff were not trained on how to help. Finally the manager was able to help, but not until the last day of our stay. The breakfast was good with a nice selection

Great and/or excellent do not describe our experience three nights ago. Our room, 327 was spacious and functional. The towels were large and nice to the touch. However, the coffee maker did not work and the bathroom was not clean, i.e. there were build-ups of dirt and signs

Check in was easy and so it was adding an extra night. We were visiting Yosemite and this was the closest HIE to the National Park. Our breakfast was the perfect way to start our trip to Yosemite the next day, and it was free! Thank you to the entire staff but specially to

Stayed in double queen suite with a couch pull out. The queen beds were so worn that my teens sank through. I, the only adult, in order to get a firm enough bed, pulled the single mattress out of the couch, to put it on the floor to sleep. Its was rotton, stained, and had

Thank you Michael for sharing your experience at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced. We apologize for failing to provide you with the perfect stay we strive to provide every guest, every stay. We appreciate you finding the bad sofa sleeper mattress; we have been replacing them with new memory foam mattresses and will get it switched out quickly. We recognize that our regular beds are not always the same firmness each guest is accustomed to at home, but we get compliments on them so often that they seem to be very well liked. Thank you again for your valuable insight!

We do offer a senior discount for those 62 years and older or with valid membership ID of a retired person organization, based on availability. You can select the Senior Discount from the drop-down list on our website when checking rates to see whether it is available on a specific date. Thank you for asking!

We had a car, but the hotel is only a few blocks away from the main road out to Yosemite, 5-10 minutes walk. Probably about the same distance from shops.

"Make reservations ahead of time to ensure availability."
"Rooms are somewhat noisy on either side of this hotel due to a freeway on ramp on one side and the train line on the other."
"Stay away from the rooms closest to the exit door. It is banged constantly by smokers going outside"
"High Floor"
"We had a double queen suite and it more than gave us enough room to move around. Nothing felt cramped. We were on the 3rd floor and the fan in the bathroom didn't seem to be working properly since after taking a shower the steam never did dissipate. We were worried that when we opened the door to the bathroom that the steam would set off the fire alarm. No big deal though."
