Our three day stay at this quiet Bethany Beach getaway in mid-July was a pleasure. From the start, Sue was incredibly helpful and kind, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. The newly renovated structure was previously a motel, so each room has a private entrance. Rooms are clean and pleasantly simple, furnished with the necessities as well as... More

My husband and I just spent a two night getaway at Meris Gardens and we can't wait to get back! We were so happy with our stay...The owner, Sue, is so friendly and accommodating and the location is great. It's such a close walk to the beach but private and set back into a beautiful wooded lot. Meris Gardens has... More

Just got back from a 3 day stay at Meris Gardens, and can't wait to book again! It was a ladies get-a-way with my mother and sister. We really enjoyed the entire stay. We shared a double room and I must say it was plenty roomy enough for us. Everything was clean an orderly. The outdoor space was wonderful, cocktails... More

We just spent a long holiday week-end at Meris Gardens and loved every minute of it. As we were traveling with our two retrievers, we opted for room E which is on the end of the original building with two sliding glass doors and a large wrap around porch. The room feels very private and almost like a little cottage.... More

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend and it was great for the price. Sue was very friendly and helpful! We used the outdoor space a lot and ended up hanging out with some of others guests in the evening. The only reason I rate cleanliness a "4" is because under the beds had water bottles and a... More

From the moment our car entered the parking lot, to the time we pulled out, Sue was everywhere and always putting our needs first to make our vacation memorable. The hotel is nicely located within walking distance of restaurants and the beach and in a very quiet neighborhood. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. The property offers... More

This was my first trip to Bethany Beach. I booked this hotel because of the high rating I found on Trip Advisor. The hotel was very attractive from the road with its white picket fence and well landscaped grounds. The room was clean and quiet and the bicycles available for guests was a lovely perk. The manager, Sue, was very... More

I stayed here last year for a reception in Bethany Beach. It is about 10 minutes from the beach. It has a quiet, charming atmosphere and a very helpful staff. I hope to return one day to see the renovations.

Staying at Meris feels like home. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else...The atmosphere, the rooms, the lush location is tops. The staff there ( I could hardly call anyone staff !....Thank you Sue for all you do and being you ) are like visiting family; warm, helpful, knowledgeable and sincere. Karin V.

After an 9 hour drive from NY, we were warmly greeted by the manager, Sue. It only took a few moments for us to realize what a gem she is. She offered us a cold drink and said it would be only a few minutes and our room would be ready as we arrived before actual check-in time. We sat... More
