There is only one place to stay in Albany, and that would be Merry Acres. The pretty grounds, kind staff, and yummy breakfast are fantastic. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. I love the pool area. It's just the place to cool off on a hot day.

I stayed two weeks at The Merry Acres and was pleasantly surprised at how nice and new the rooms were. Nice furniture, wood floors, comfortable beds, all you could ask for. The shower itself was a little outdated but the water pressure was great and plenty of hot water even when the hotel was full. Upon check in I received... More

Merry Acres was recommended by a local and it did not disappoint! This is just a charming motel. Exterior is impeccably maintained, beautiful grounds, landscape "just so". Room updates were nice, newer flat screen TV'. Hot shower, nice bed and linens. If I were to be super picky, I'd say the doors/hardware need replacement because you can just tell that... More

Great amenities for the money. No complaints here. Shuttle service made it worthwhile. The pub was a little boring, but nice. Definitely worth a try. Great location, slept in and missed breakfast so can't give review on the food.

The sink area was nice but the shower unit in a tub/shower drop in model that is old and really needs replacing. There was also a hole... More

Clean, comfortable, quiet. What else do you need for a business trip? Also they will provide transportation to several good restaurants or you can have them pick up your dinner and bring it to your room.

I was extremely disappointed with Merry Acres Inn during my recent visit. The reviews were great, but the hotel was not. Everything about the hotel was pleasant until I went into the bathroom. The tub was stained and the water was a brownish-orange color. I called the office to speak to the manager, but she was unavailable. I visited the... More

Stayed her for a conference which was held downtown. Merry Acres Inn is only about 5 minutes from downtown, but a much more comfortable and quiet choice. Clean spacious room which looked to have been fairly recently remodeled, at a price 2/3 of the hotel conference room. Cute little pub with a fireplace and simple room service done well.

This looks like you stepped back into the 50's, 1952 actually, when the motel was first opened. Owned by the same person who owns the best restaurants in town (The Catch, Harry Campbell's etc) this is a great little glimpse back into history. That includes the 1939 Studebaker parked in front. The rooms are clean - nice hardwoods. There is... More

My family started staying at this hotel in the 1960's and recently found myself back in Albany for family gathering. Rooms are tastefully decorated....hardwood floors, extremely comfortable beds, spotless bathrooms, and the service by the staff is exceptional. Everyone greeted us with a smile and a "how can I help" attitude. I cannot understand why anyone would to go Albany... More

For decades, it's been a favored spot for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, banquets, corporate seminars and retreats, class and family reunions, showers, birthday parties, and fundraisers. That list has grown to include private parties, cocktail parties, and wine tastings.The appeal of Merry Acres Event Center is its ability to offer a number of various configurations to provide just the right amount of space for each group. But whether a large formal soiree or a smaller, more personal gathering, Merry Acres Event Center coordinates with your particular theme and enables a one-stop approach for your guests' lodging, meeting, and catering needs.In fact, the Stewbos Catering service works within the Merry Acres Restaurant, located within the Event Center.
