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.

We are so delighted you had a lovely stay with us in Bethany Beach. We strive to make each experience better and better. Sue is becoming quite a baker. I sampled her banana bread and I agree, very delicious. Please come back soon and thank you for the kind words! Patti More

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

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 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

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.

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.
