The girl at the front desk was friendly and helpful. The lobby area was neat and tidy. The room was a very nice size and clean. There was no fan in the bathroom to use while showering. Breakfast was hot and adequate. The cost of this hotel was too expensive for what it offered. There was nothing special about this...

We were at The Inn for 10 days. We had a great experience. Large King room was more than ample space for the 2 of us and very comfy. Staff made us feel at home and very friendly. I need to mention one individual who was exceptional in taking care of the morning breakfast and eating area. Maria I think...

Stayed here to visit the nearby wildlife refuges. The location is not convenient for Yosemite, but you could use this as a stopover if you want to go there as well. ROOM: The hotel is clean - the rooms were well done and the bathroom was nice. Although the room wasn't a suite it was very general in space. They...

Thank you for sharing!

I've stayed here many times as I have family in Merced and they frequently have other houseguests so I just keep it simple and book a room here.

Stayed two nights. The room was clean and very spacious. The area was quiet and convenient to the freeway.
