We stayed here for one night before heading up to Yosemite which is about 4 hours on the Yarts bus which leaves from Merced. The bus stop wasn't too far from hotel which is why we chose it. The hotel staff were very helpful and the rooms were big and quite comfortable. All amenities were offered and the rooms were...

We chose Merced as our starting point for Yosemite. We drove there from Sequoia NP and after a long drive we were accepted by attentive receptionist, who gave us all the information about the motel, we could even get pool towels. Our room was at the pool looking across the pool. I did not use the pool though as we...

When it comes to travelling, I'll sacrifice comfort for accessibility and for cost. This hotel was great for both. Is it a 5 star hotel? Far, far from it. But for 85$ a night and only 80 miles from Yosemite Valley, it most certainly met our needs. We traveled in June and had an amazing time hiking in the valley!...

We were stopping here on our drive from Tahoe to the big sur. The town is quite small but near the hotel are several restaurants and other motels plus a general store and laundrette. The hotel room was huge. We arrived in our room and the air con didn't work. We went to reception and were given a new room....

We stayed here for a week while exploring central California and the Bay area. Our room was pretty clean, although I did see a cockroach. The TV was outdated and the furniture was very worn out. Our room had neither a desk nor a table. The parking lot was dimly lit and I did not see any security. The hotel...

It was the price - more than $100 less than other major motels. But there are drawbacks: skimpy towels, dim lighting, some aging carpeting. The bed was very comfortable, and the office staff friendly and able. We were there for a very short time, but the hotel filled our needs.

First the staff was nice I can not blame them for the condition of the hotel. Bed and interior of the room was beat. Smelled like someone smoked in the room.

My 4 star rating is based on my specific needs and expectations. These are, an inexpensive place to sleep on ou way to Yosemite. Hotels near the park entrance are in the $200 plus range.
