Conveniently located right off Highway 99, we offer a free hot buffet breakfast each morning, free high-speed wired and wireless Internet access, heated pool and spa, fitness center, and business center. Every room has a mini refrigerator and microwave. For meetings, Merced is a great halfway point in the central valley and our meeting room is 1250 square feet and can seat up to 75 people.
