“Great stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

We have stayed in Merrickville numerous times but this is the first time at The Merrickville Suites. We were very pleased with the whole experience. Everything we needed was there and more. We look forward to going there again soon.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights mid December 2013 during what was a very cold period with temperatures of -23 degrees (celcius!!)

We had the apartment at the back and for the most part it was well appointed. Bed was comfortable, heating worked a treat, bathroom spacious, and kitchen a god-send given the weather.

A couple of things to note:

* given the prediction, and subsequent cold weather and snow fall it would have been nice if the back stairs and deck had been cleared and gritted. It made for a hairy walk down in the mornings to the car.
* there was no broom inside so when we returned after a day out, we had no way of cleaning the floor of our snow laden boots...
* the kitchen, even though well equipped, had no 'basics' such as oil and butter for cooking. The carton of milk, couple of muffins and granola and yoghurt were much appreciated but my husband likes bacon and eggs (which we were happy to buy) but then annoyed when we got back to find no way of cooking them.

Other than those suggestions, it is a wonderful little place and town.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay at the Merrickville Guest Suites. We always want to maintain healthy relationships with our guests by providing them with the best hospitality we can.

We try to take every precaution - especially in bad weather - to make sure entry-ways and stairs are clear of snow and ice. We apologize for the inconvenience you encountered with the snow during your stay. We have now provided each room with a snow shovel and indoor broom for our guests convenience if the snowfall is continuous.

Many of our guests don't use the kitchenette, but if you plan to do some cooking we are happy to provide you with some basic cooking essentials.

Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to having you stay at the Merrickville Guest Suites again soon!

We spent two days enjoying Merrickville. It's a great place to relax. We watched the boats going through the locks, enjoyed lunch at an outdoor patio and later ate lots of ice cream. The room was clean, very spacious and filled with lots of those little things that make life fun and easy, shampoos, towels, wash cloths, Kleenex, art books, magazines, DVDs, tourist information etc. Loved the shower! I look forward to coming back for another stay.

Thank you owner, Michael and assistant Andrea for anticipating our every need! Our lovely suite was big, comfy, and stocked for just eating breakfast or cooking a meal. All the conveniences of home and then some!
The townspeople were helpful and friendly. Whistle Post fun and interesting with owner being so kind in pointing us to different places of interest. The canal area is clean and groomed making boat watching a peaceful, relaxing activity. Merrickville and Merrickville Suites definitely stops to put on your map!

Room Tip: Two suites available ...we chose the one with porch off the back...but decided to stay a third night...

My husband and I spent a night at the Merrickville Guest Suites, we stayed in the back room with the big deck. Merrickville is a lovely little town with lots of shops, we watched the glassblowers in action. Kathy was our check in/check out person and she was professional and lovely to deal with. Parking is provided conveniently right out back of the building. There was a good selection of DVDs in the suite, we picked our favourite Seinfeld DVD to watch. We even got a gift certificate for the leather shop downstairs and selection of breakfast goodies.
A great place to get away.

What a gem we stumbled upon! My sister and I stayed here for 1 night to enjoy some christmas shopping and the town of Merrickville. The room is just perfect. The bed is so comfortable I actually slept in until 10 am which is quite a rarity! The room is clean and decorated beautifully. Every last detail has been thought of to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The view from the room is of the quaint town and it couldn't have been more magical during the christmas season! Owners are very attentive and we have rebooked for next year.
