Pros: The pillows were like sleeping on clouds☁. The lounge chair was unlike any I've seen and quite comfortable. The roll out table was very useful.
Cons: The light over the coffee station was out. A microwave would have been a nice addition. It was hard to control the air conditioning. It would be too cold or we had to shut it off completely. The one person I spoke with on the housekeeping staff didn't understand the question I asked.

5,0 Okay
Pros: We stayed here one night in September 2019. The hotel is located next to the highway so make sure you get a room on the other side. Even there the traffic is (very) noisy. If you are a light sleeper, bring your earplugs. The hotel has recently been renovated and the very small rooms have a light, modern interior with good lighting. The room has a refrigerator, a microwave and a coffeemaker. The bed is good, the shower could be better. The hotel has a laundryroom but the Reception was not able to provide the required quarters to operate the machines. Also the machine which provides washingpowder was out of order. We considered both as a lack of service! Breakfast buffet is included and is simple.
Cons: Very noisy neighborhood (traffic). Unhelpful staff re. laundry facilities (see above).

Cons: No elevator.
7,9 Good
Pros: The breakfast was very nice. The location is convenient, when you get out of Yosemite and don't want to travel too long. Merced has a nice dog park.
Cons: OK, so the location is not great in terms of where the motel is. Also, our rooms were not ready at check-in (because we were "upgraded" whatever that means - we booked two rooms with a queen each and got two rooms with two queens each...) which is a bit of a hassle when it's 40 deg C outside. (It gets hot there in summer).
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Cleanliness, big spatious room.
Cons: Noisy AC made sleeping without earplugs difficult.
10,0 Excellent

6,3 Good
Pros: It was okay. Usable but the bed wasn't very comfortable and it is an older place that needs to be remodeled/refreshed.
6,8 Good
Pros: I chose this hotel because it was affordable at the time. The staff members were friendly as well.
Cons: The room we were offered was the size of a small to medium sized bedroom so it was very cozy. The bathroom is very small and uncomfortable. During our 3 night stay, the cleaning maids didn't service our room at all. Our key card came with a used and wrinkled card sleeve. The walls are pretty thin so you can hear everything.

Pros: Very large rooms with kitchen facilities, very clean and confortable.
5,0 Okay
Pros: price
Cons: it was loud, not nice area, random people knocking on your door in the middle of the night
3,0 Mediocre
Pros: Near where I needed to be.
Cons: Everything seemed to be under construction at the hotel; noisy being close to the freeway and the door provided little help; room seemed empty; breakfast was barely more than toast.
5,4 Okay
Cons: If you need to stay here, avoid first floor. There's a lot o bugs in the rooms and outside. Our room had bugs on the floor, walls, in the bed. We ran away! Tried second floor and was "ok". One of the beds is so close to AC it makes it only for 1 person unless you wanna get sick from the AC.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The pool is fantastic. The kitchenette is clean, well-stocked & so very convenient. The refrigerator isn't tiny - it is full size.
Cons: I didn't like that although I checked in after midnite, I still had to check out at noon. But that would be the case probably anywhere. There is only one working ice machine. Also, the bathroom floor is EXTREMELY slippery when wet. Lastly, there is no breakfast offered here. They assume since there's a kitchenette, that you would have brought the things to make for breakfast.
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Nice spacious room with plenty of room to move around.
Cons: The connecting door. Other people in the other room kept messing with it. They were also very loud as was the room above me.
2,5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing. It was a total druggie motel. Drug deals going on everywhere. Totally embarrassing that I took my family there to see my grandson who is attending uc Merced. It must be one of the places that homeless people live with their state “vouchers “. This is great, but they shouldn’t be advertising like they are a place for a family to stay. And it gives booking.com a bad reputation to be booking rooms there. I am going to write bad reviews everywhere!!!!! To top it off, they treated us like we were their typical clients! The room was filthy!!!!
Cons: See above. I hated everything!!! Although the landscaping was beautiful, but the people living there have no respect for it, and throw cigarette butts everywhere!!!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Helpful staff at check in. Beautiful room.

Pros: The room was very spacious and the plus was the small kitchen

Pros: NOTHING
Cons: Large Roach in room
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Even though the place did not look like much from the outside, it was clean. When we arrived and checked into the room, i realized someone had smoked in the room; i asked the front desk to change room and they were really prompt and got me another room. The staff was engaging and fast to react to solve this issue. Also, the next room had not been smoked into, so it was good. The room was clean, fresh and definitely family friendly. I will definitely recommend this place to travelers.
Cons: Nothing, the service was great.

Pros: Breakfast was sufficient with options for every diet. The television didn't work in the first room I was offered, and the staff responded immediately to move me to another room when she couldn't get the first set to work. The second room was just as comfortable as the first. The front desk clerks were very helpful in every way.

7,5 Good
Pros: I stayed here as a last resort really to go to Yosemite as I didn't really plan ahead of time. I have no complaints about the place. It is clean. It was really a straight shot on my way to Yosemite. And I didn't really take advantage of the continental breakfast so I can't really say anything about that. Quick check in and out.
Cons: No complaints

4,2 Okay
Pros: The girl at check out was smiling and friendly.
Cons: The girl at the reception during check in was quite rude. There were some HAIRS on the towels... And in gemeral the room was not clean. We didn't like staying there and waited for the morning to go away. Not for family with kids for sure because it's really not clean. Besides the area didn't seem safe... and was rather industrial, without any stores or calm streets

3,3 Mediocre
Pros: The receptionists both evening and morning were very helpful and pleasant.
Cons: The room was not well maintained (the external door looked as though it had been broken into which made me feel unsafe). The air conditioning did not work well. Inside the room felt like it was falling to bits and the bedspreads were old and stained (the bed sheets were clean) the towels whilst clean were threadbare. The floors were not cleaned thoroughly. We went out of the room in the evening and left early as we were able in the morning as I just did not want to be in the room at all!

Towels were dirty.

1,0 Poor

Cons: There was feces on the bathroom floor and all the towels were very dirty. The hotel is located in a homeless and drug infested neighborhood
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Good location just off 99. Convenient to the long drive into Yosemite. Start early.
Cons: A few basic amenities are missing: Ice machine, convenient power for charging, breakfast. None are catastrophic but it can be improved upon. I travel cheap, I'm used to bottom of the barrel. I don't have high expectation at cheap motels. I am disgusted at the current changes in the motel industry; that bottom of the barrel has doubled in price over the last two years (since 2017). Paying that much money just to sleep, my expectations grow. Many of these guys are now taking in double the income but are not reinvesting it back into the facilities.
7,0 Good
Pros: Bed was comfortable, sheets were clean, nice hot shower. Yes the motel is old and a bit rundown, and the area is a bit shabby, but you knew that when you booked and you were not paying $--- a night.
