Antique car tour stayed at the Merry Acres. Physical facility very good. Rooms nice and cleaned every day. Pool area good. Pub/bar cozy. Food good Merry Acres will also bring food to you from one of their downtown restaurants. Highly recommend the place

Merry Acres is not your high level, new hotel. It is an older resort that has single story out-lying rooms. They are older, wood floored and well maintained. They lighting is less than perfect. But the location is central to most of Albany.

Stayed at this property for a 2 day conference. This place is like a hybrid of an old school apartment complex/motel that has been updated to meet the most basic hotel standards. It's charming though and the staff were very hospitable! I enjoyed the cute, little parlor and overall, I'd describe this property as cozy. It certainly matches the charm... More

My son ran the Albany Marathon. He needed to stay close to the start line this was not as close as he wanted. He stayed at the Days Inn (never stay there). His flight was canceled to the next day so he was able to go to another hotel. This was so beautiful nice hard wood floors, comfortable bed, wonderful... More

Nothing like their website. Old dirty motel with updated bedding and flooring. Bathrooms are dirty. Breakfast leaves much to be desired. My room had hair in the bathtub which was clogged. I thought this would be a hotel as they claim they are, but the t only have their lobby inside that colonial style house. All rooms are motel style... More

We're sorry to hear you feel your experience at Merry Acres was lackluster. We pride ourselves in giving an enhanced guest experience at our hotel. Our rooms are exterior corridor-style, which can have several benefits when you consider we have a state-of-the-art security system. With the beautiful green space and our central salt water pool & gazebo area, many of... More

On trips to Albany to visit family, I ALWAYS stay at Merry Acres. The staff is genuinely glad to have you as a guest. The housekeeping staff bends over backwards to make sure you have what you need. Case in point, I was saying good morning to one of the housekeeping staffers and (I was standing in the door with... More

From the moment I checked in, I felt like a family member coming back home. I received a voucher that saved me $20 on my dinner at one of the three restaurants owned by the hotel. They provide a shuttle to take you to and from the restaurants. There is a complimentary breakfast in the restaurant at the hotel. My... More

Ok so let me start this out by saying this place is by far the best little motel I have stayed in a while. It began with check in and contained to the check out process.
