Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by johnb64 Clean, nicely appointed room
I had to attend a two-day training for work, and opted to spend the night. The room was large, really beautiful, and clean. I really slept well and enjoyed my one minute commute the next morning.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dddaisy Terrible Room
I have to say this was probably the worst two nights I have ever spent in a HIE hotel. I'm a platinum elite member so I've stayed in a lot of HIE hotels. We were given an end room on the first floor and all night long people were slamming the back entry door and stomping up the stairs which were right behind our bed. Very poor planning for the layout of that room.
Couldn't wait to get out of there!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob is only 3 characters Upper room locations not s good idea for leg amputees
Due to elevator "shutdowns" in hotel emergencies, upper floor room accommodations seems inappropriate
for double amputees. Attempting to egress by stairs can be very slow to avoid falling when in a hurry or blocking other guests also trying to leave the hotel/motel. Rooms should be closer to elevators or stairwells if they are to be on upper floors.

I came to Merced to get the YART bus to Yosemite I had some concerns on everything in general. I mentioned this to tke lady checking me in. She mentioned the general manager Sean was on the YARTboard. I went down a bit later and spoke to him. Not only did he ally my fears, he answered all me questions got copies of the bus schedule and personally drove me in his car to the depot. He also arranged a ride a back.
I have never had more personalized service. Thanks Sean, Danielle, and all.

All in all it was good. I did call on the phone and it took someone to take my reservation at least 20 mins of hold time. They were checking in a group? Not sure. Other then that it was fine.

HI Express always offers a reliable, comfortable experience.
Same rooms, same free breakfast. But beware of the bright lights shining into your room if you have an even-numbered room facing the front of this property. It's like 747 landing lights lighting up your room all night. And only sheer curtains are provided, no way to darken your room. I built a wall of pillows next to the head of the bed so at least my head was in the shade. On the plus side, when I checked out I saw the steaming spa out back, wish I had seen it the night before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Very happy with our stay!
Although we only stayed one night, we were VERY happy with the overall experience.
Beds were super comfy. I actually slept better in these beds than at home. SIX stars for the beds! Bathroom was clean -- plenty of towels. Carpet looked good. Furniture was in good shape. TV worked properly and was a decent size.
Really good breakfast selections! Biscuits and gravy, sausage and eggs? Pancakes? Nice! Probably the best I've ever experienced in a hotel of this class. The food was on par with some nicer boutique hotels we've stayed at. If I had to rate the food quality, I'd say that it's a little better than fast food and almost as good as Denny's or IHOP. Considering the price of the room, the breakfast makes it an even better value.
There were some questionable stains on one wall (almost looked like dried blood) that we noticed as were packing to check out. Had we noticed it earlier we would have asked someone to deal with it. It's possible that it needed to be painted over thus making it impossible for the cleaning staff to do more than try and clean the surface. Another small issue was the puddle of water accumulated outside the tub after using it. Yes, me and my wife both know how to position a shower curtain, but after each of us showered, we both had a small lake that had to be cleaned up. Good thing we had all those extra towels. The aforementioned were minor gripes. We will definitely stay here again the next time were down to see relatives.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LUCY-ROSE GOOD BREAKFAST
The free breakfast on site is very good . Maria, who works at breakfast time, was very friendly, and helpful. The food choices were very good , and we were more than satisfied.
The room was okay, but mainly set up for a male person. The switches, on the lamps by the beds were extremely hard to operate. The desk chair was too low, so that a short person could not see in the mirror. The desk is set up like a man's office, with a swivel chair, which cannot be raised up enough for a short person. This is annoying, when a woman wants to use the desk to do her makeup etc. When one shares a bathroom , it is a nice thing to have a vanity or desk to do one's hair , makeup etc,while the other person is using the bathroom. This was not possible in this room. Also , the plug in the bathroom was unusual, and not easy to operate, to make the water stay in the tub. Again , not women friendly, just good for a male who uses a shower. Once we discovered how to operate it , by discussing this with staff, we were okay with it.
In the book about the facilites it would be nice to mention the microwave in the cupboard in the room. Again hard to open, and one does not realise there is a microwave inside.. It looks just like a wine closet. No mention of it anywhere.
After staying here for the first time, we know all about the cons , so that the next time we stay here, it will be a little easier on us.
We will stay here again. It is very quiet, so you get a good nights sleep.

We've stayed in two rooms; they were connected by a door which worked out perfectly. The rooms were clean. The bathroom door had some work done on it and was not finished professional.
Overall it was a good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RD29 Wish I could have stayed longer!
This was a last minute trip to Merced and we were happy just to find a room at a very reasonable price; but we were even more pleased to interact with a very courteous and extremely helpful staff. The breakfast choices were wonderful and satisfied all three people in my party. The only complaint I had is that the bathroom didn't have a ventilating fan which created a humid atmosphere in that room. But we can live with that!
Thank you Holiday Inn. I'm looking forward to my next stay with you.

We often stay in Merced to visit with family. The Holiday Inn Express provides a great bed, pillows and ample room for four people in a double queen room. The property is well tended. Facing the parking lot, we had no issues with the freeway noise.
