Huntington Beach, California
Reviewed 1 May 2016

I relocated to Merced from Southern California and needed to stay at the Rodeway Inn for several weeks. My room was always exceptionally clean and the customer service from Manny and the family was amazing. If you are stopping by or staying here in Merced, the Rodeway is an exceptional choice for you and/or your family.

I do a lot of business travel, and have been coming to this motel for a few years. Staff (especially the manager, Manny) are always friendly, efficient, responsive. The clientele are not noisy/rowdy (unlike my experience at what used to be the Comfort Inn in Merced), and staff keep a close eye on the property to make sure bad elements...

The outside is nice and kept up. The rooms are very dated, but they are clean. Everything in the room worked, except the freezer didn't keep things frozen. It did keep them very cold, just not frozen. I stayed here while waiting to buy a new home. They allow pets which is great! They are also in an okay neighborhood....
