I can't even begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. We were getting married and a lot of our guests booked rooms and the first night I stayed in the Garden Room with my two daughters. It was so very nice! The second night my husband and I stayed after our wedding and we were welcomed with... More

Sue was amazing, she emailed us the day before our arrival just to see if we have any questions or concerns. Once we arrived at Meris Gardens we were just amazed. The room was just perfect. Sure was great. We will definitely going back to Meris Gardens.

We were looking for a pet friendly place to stay in Bethany Beach and stumbled across this location. We stayed in Room J which has a porch and a couple of chairs available to sit outside. It was perfect for us with the dog as he could lay out there on his blanket and was not stuck in the room... More

Very well maintained. The rooms are small but construction is top notch. Very clean. The staff is the best I've ever seen in all my years of traveling - very concerned about their customers. We felt at ease, safe, and comforted the entire week. If we go back, we won't even consider a competitor. Highly recommend.

Rooms were clean though dated and management was helpful. sue was very attentive to guests. Nice breakfast with basic items. This is a distance from the beach and require driving or walking or biking to the beach. Parking is a problem as spaces fill up near beach and costly parking fees.

Highly recommend, great staff, small, quaint, off the beaten path yet close to everything. Rooms in back are nicely appointed for the beach. Breakfast is awesome, cooked on the premises in the house kitchen! A rare find these days.

We had a nice long weekend stay here with our our 2 little dogs in tow and we were all welcomed by the friendly staff. The location is nice and quiet and in a shady area, but the beach is just a short bike ride away. Which bikes are free to use which is a money saver. All i could... More
