Howard Johnson's Landmark: Fall 1970, p 6
Merced, California -- 720 Motel Ave

Prominently located at S.R. 99's interchange with Yosemite Parkway in the area's "motel row," the Merced Restaurant was opened in 1970. Only lasting about eight years as a Howard Johnson's, it had ceased to be listed in directories by the end of 1978. In middle 2000s it was operating as a Carrow's.
