Good for a one night stay

Pros: Friendly service and big parking lot
Cons: Cleanliness of the rooms
Location: Location is near the freeway and there is a Starbucks nearby.
I thought the location of the inn was great and easily accessible. The service is friendly and sweet. The place did have a weird smell to it and the my room had an odor like molded wet fabrics. I found a hair on my towel and the bathroom floors were a bit sticky so that was a bit daunting. There was also a piece of gum on the lamp. I probably would not book at this place again but it was a ok stay for a night.

UC MERCED Orientation

I have to say they have an awesome employee by the name of Alex. She helped me out before I got to hotel because I had my other daughter going with us and she made accommodations so we would be comfortable. Then once we arrived she was extremely helpful with all our needs. I want to thank you Alex and hope your manager is aware of such an excellent person they have working the front desk.

Clean hotel

The room was clean and comfortable. However the pool was filled with teenagers who ignored the fact that others were in the pool. It would have been nice if staff would have calmed that crowd down a bit. We all want to have fun but need to be respectful of others. The breakfast kept running out as the hotel was completely full. You would think the staff would have been prepared. I will stay again but won't use the pool or eat the breakfast

Thank you Karen for sharing your experience at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced. I'm glad you enjoyed a clean and comfortable room, and I apologize for the hotel being a bit crowded during your stay. We will try to schedule better staffing during busy breakfast hours, and keep a closer eye on the pool during peak activity. Thank you for the feedback! Sean Williams General Manager

Misleading and uncomfortable.

We booked a "suite" but it turned out to be just a very large room. My wife and I would never have booked this room had we known this beforehand. Also the AC basically worked only at two settings - freezing or off.

Thank you for taking time to share your experience at Holiday Inn Express & Suites Merced. I am sorry our suite did not meet your expectations! Our standard rooms feature a king or two queen beds; our suites are larger rooms, with a sofa sleeper, coffee table, table and two chairs, and seem popular with those needing to sleep more than four people or for those who stay long-term and like some extra space. Each room's thermostat is set to activate whenever the guest-programmed temperature varies more than one or two degrees. We will do our best to determine which room you were in so as to repair or replace the thermostat as needed. Thank you again! Sean Williams General Manager

Nice hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, non smoking, newer hotel
Cons: road construction detours, couldn't reserve choice of beds in advance.
Clean and newer hotel with a friendly and courteous staff. 100% smoke free hotel. Staff was very helpful giving information about the community.

Holiday Inn Express Merced

This is an excellent, medium priced hotel, with the amenities of a high priced one. This is second time we've stayed there, and will always go back when we visit our family in Merced. Highly recommend.
