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

A spur of the moment trip to the beach for a couple of days with my adult kids and one dog. Stumbled upon this spot online- and went ahead and booked. Sue was very kind (even when I left both keys at the beach with my daughter and had to have her let me in the room), breakfast was a... More

Perfect location from Bethany down town, clean rooms. Manger Sue goes out of her way to make your visit perfect. During our visit Sue got extra goodies for breakfast that our 1 year old nephew would like and was able to give us a room suited for a crawling baby. The grounds are serene and comfortable.

My family stayed at Meris Gardens at the beginning of August. The property was walking distance to the beach. However, we took the free bikes to the beach and avoided the parking meters. The staff was wonderful. We plan to stay again next time in Bethany Beach.

I just got back from a weekend stay 7/31-8/2 at Meris Gardens. All I can say is that this wonderful property more than exceeded my expectations. This was my first time at Bethany Beach and my boyfriend and I booked Meris Gardens a little last minute and wanted somewhere close to the beach where we could bring the dog. We... More

My husband and I stayed at Meris Gardens from July 14th to the 17th. What a wonderful place to stay. We loved the gardens on the property. It made for a relaxing stay. We were far enough away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to bike (free use) to the beach in less than 10 minutes. Our room... More

We expected nicer ammenities for the rate charged however the staff more than made up for the dated but clean motel converted to a quaint B and B close to the beach and downtown Bethany. Cant say enough good about Sue, the manager who goes overboard to make sure guests are taken care of. We stayed in the siute adjoining... More

My fiancee and I re-visited Meris Gardens again and it was better than ever. They now have some hot breakfast items, including waffles, which got our days kick-started! There was an egg-bake in the morning and they host happy hours in the evening. Sue, the manager, is amazing and is such a warm host who will take care of literally... More

A good stay if you have pets. Quiet, off the beaten path but right there in the middle of things. Staff was great!! AC unit in the bathroom was a little odd but still okay. I would stay again in the future.
