I am writing this review with a heavy heart. I normally would never give anyone such a poor review especially since I did not even get the opportunity to stay here. I was scheduled to come and stay 2 nights with my husband my 12 year old son and our 2 new dogs. Very excited especially since they welcomed dogs.... More

We stayed here for my husband's birthday weekend. As everyone else has said, Sue was AMAZING - she really made Meris Gardens feel like home! She was busy with a race in town that weekend, but still took time to get to know all her guests and meet their needs! We brought two dogs, one large and one small, and... More

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

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
