We stopped by Merry Acres, after a death in the family, to make lodging arrangements for ourselves and some family members coming into town for the funeral. At the front desk, Joe was very kind, took time to describe rooms, then allowed us to see three different ones. We were impressed by the cleanliness and selection and reserved what we... More

Was back in Albany for a 70's reunion and Merry Acres was the host Inn. What a nice change from the big chain hotels. Locally owned and operated, a true mid century gem. The rooms were spacious and clean, internet that worked too! I did not get the opportunity to eat there except for the breakfast that was included. Fresh... More

We checked in around 6:00 and immediately went to the pool without looking around our room. We got back to our room around 11:00 and realized there were no sheets/blankets for the pull out sofa. I called front desk and they send some right over. While waiting the kid's took 2 showers and we realized the drain wasn't working properly,... More

We found this inn on trip advisor. We were searching for a different route home from Nashville to Florida that was pet friendly. Our room was very clean and updated except for the bathroom a little small. Check in was easy and staff very friendly. One suggestion wld be to put pet waste stations on property. I carry pet bags...

My fiancé and I have stayed at Merry Acres twice now and we love it. During our first stay, we enjoyed the fresh summer air out on the front porch as well as the kind company that joined us. We also had the chance to ride one of the shuttle buses to one the recommended restaurants. The gentlemen who transported... More

To anyone reading this review: This is a point-of-view that does not fully explain the nature of the situation. This guest refused to accept any beverage other than a glass bottle, which is against our corporate policy when drinking beside our pool. We have a very busy summer crowd using our pool service and it is of highest importance to... More

I have stayed at a number of hotels from MA to FL and nothing compares to the quality, professionalism, and "home like" environment than Merry Acres in Albany, GA. Their rooms are immaculate, the food is unreal, their Manor House and Pub is community and the staff is very personable. They go out of their way to make you feel... More

We stayed here while passing through town on business. This is charming, motel style lodging -- but remodeled. Beautiful landscaping, a little oasis. Our room was updated and clean, the beds very comfortable. Every staff member we met was warm and welcoming. We had a drink in the pub, relaxing in the leather chairs. The shuttle driver (a free service)... More

I was a little skeptical choosing this place but after reading reviews on the Internet I decided to give it a try. It's hard to put my finger on it but there is just something wonderful and special about this cute little hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Merry Acres is known for its impeccable service, spotless accommodations, and beautifully landscaped grounds. The large variety of amenities make it a place where you can relax around the secluded swimming pool and enjoy the shade of the gazebo; work out in the state-of-the-art PT GYM; enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast buffet; or utilize the 24 hour business center with two personal computers, high-speed internet, fax, copier, and printer. The rooms themselves are tastefully decorated yet comfortable, with all rooms offering a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, iron, ironing board, hairdryers, and high-speed internet.A particularly attractive feature of the Merry Acres Campus is the 5,900 square foot Event & Conference Center. 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. While the Merry Acres Restaurant is open daily for Breakfast and each Sunday from 11:00AM - 2:30PM for our Southern Lunch Buffet, the enormous kitchen now serves as the headquarters for Stewbos Catering on a daily basis. More recently, Merry Acres has added a full transportation to its list of services, including a complimentary shuttle van service for Hotel Guests and City Club Members. We are proud to announce our newest additions to the transportation service - a 1939 Studebaker and a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, both available for rent for your next special occasion! ... more   less
