Having stayed at this motel last year soon after it had changed hands, I can attest to its transformation from an OK motel to a facility that offers very special accommodations. We needed a place to stay for only a few days, and appreciated its pet-friendly policy. It is reasonably priced,and the location is convenient as well as very pleasant--a... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Meris Gardens-Bethany B&B for the Labor Day weekend. Sue the Manger of the property was extremely polite, and helped with recommendations for restaurants ect. The actual property itself is very close to the beach, but also in a secluded wooden area so its quiet. The rooms were very nice and very well kept... More

FIRST I must say that this "pet friendly" B&B was my refuge for a long needed weekend away from the urban life. The place was a surprising delight with a nice size room and the grounds so tranquil. It brought back memories of traveling with parents back in the day. Sue the property manager made you feel at home and... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here a few weekends ago and it was so pleasant! We had no expectations but were looking for something relatively quiet and convenient and Meris Gardens seemed to fit the bill. The layout was absolutely perfect for a beach hotel and was very "homey." The management was truly unbelievable and the manager, Sue, could not... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Meris Gardens the first week of August 2014 for a lovers getaway. We were delighted with the room and the grounds. The lodge and breakfast were a great perk for getting us on our way quickly. Going to and from the beach and dinner on bikes they provided made this an authentic trip at... More

Your GM, Sue is a pleasant woman and I don't want to take anything away from the wonderful reviews about her. However, your place IS filthy with cobwebs, broken furniture and dirty carpet remnants (since you don't call it carpeting). There was other reviews that said the same as I did from a year ago, so thank you for your... More

The manager went above and beyond to ensure my family's five-day stay was enjoyable, from offering me a free can of Coca-Cola when we arrived to setting out a generous complimentary breakfast every morning in the lounge (really more like a living room than a typical lounge). She was a responsive and gracious host. Thanks, Sue! As for the rooms,... More

We had a wonderful time at Meris. Sue (host) is lovely and knowledgeable about the area, rooms are clean and comfortable, wonderful outside shower, good breakfasts, lots of appealing outdoor seating areas to chat (we were "reuning"), easy walk or bike to the beach. We saw the "bates motel" review as we were heading down in the car, and it... More

The place was excellent, beautiful inside and out. I loved the trees and places to sit outside. The continental breakfast was delicious. Sue was very gracious and helpful. It was so easy to get to the beach and shopping. I would definitely stay again.
