5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

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.

We haven't been on a vacation like this in quite some time. Meris Gardens is relaxing, convenient, clean and welcoming. The property is very pretty - like you are away on a retreat. I can't say enough about Sue. Sue was so accommodating and made us feel at “our home away from home.” In the week that we stayed, my... More

We just returned home after a long weekend get-away to BB and loved our stay at Meris Gardens. The hospitality can't be beat! Breakfast every morning always includes a fresh baked item from Ms. Sue. Family friendly and quick walk/bike/drive up to the beach. Will return! Rooms are small, for sure, but perfect for a quick trip.

Two night stay was great! This is very nice Bethany Beach getaway. Enjoyed being able to take a bike and ride whenever and for as long as I liked without asking anyone and with full trust that I would care for (lock provided) and return as expected. Rooms are clean, simple and filled with the necessities - mini frig, flat... More

We continue to feel so fortunate that we are able to provide a positive experience for visitors that are getting away from the "real" world, and enjoying time in Bethany, and the surrounding areas. Meris Gardens is here for you and, hopefully, for anyone looking for a comfortable home base here at the shore. Thanks for choosing us for your... More

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

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
