The very best part of this hotel is Maria, the lovely woman who is in charge of the complimentary breakfast that is provided every morning for guests. She does everything, from cooking up delicious breakfast items to keeping everything spotless and gleaming. And she greets us with a smile and cheerful welcome every single time. We always look forward to...

It was around 1 a.m., I was driving down the 99 fwy and couldn't stand it anymore; I needed sleep. I pulled over in/on "Motel Circle" or something like that, and came upon this hotel.

Decided to stay here after reading previous reviews. We were here only one night, on a Sunday, but the room and hotel was very clean and comfortable. Our beds were nice and room had refrigerator and microwave. The facility also has a laundry for guests. Breakfast was biggest surprise. It was very immaculate. The food choices were fresh and varied....

Veronica of the banquet and breakfast staff was outstanding. She not only single handily handled the breakfast crowd, but managed to keep our conference room organized and supplied with refreshments. Front desk was also helpful and recommended several excellent local restaurants.

Reviewed 5 April 2017

We enjoyed our stay for the night. The breakfast was on par with like hotels. The room was very clean and smoke free. Location to Yosemite was what brought us to Merced. The only thing I didn't like was the auto close hinges on the bathroom. I realize it conflicts with the entry door swing. Thank you Mike & Kim

Thank you Mike & Kim for taking time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. I'm glad we could be a piece of your trip to Yosemite National Park, I hope your memories of the park last a lifetime. I apologize about the self-closing bathroom door hinges; I know they were built that way in 2009 due to a building code...

We had to stay in Merced for a night to catch a train the next morning. We chose Holiday Inn based on trip advisor reviews. The room was nice and the staff were friendly. We had the 'buffet' breakfast the next morning which was limited and average but was good enough.
