“Good hotel that borders comfort suite quality”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

The comfort suites in Albany, GA is an average hotel the borders between Comfort Suite quality and Comfort Inn quality. If you frequently stay at choice hotels then you will know what I mean. The service was good and I have no complaints about the rooms. Everything was up to choice standards. This hotel does have one added bonus. As a guest you will have access to the gym next door (walking distance). This was an added surprise as the normal hotel gym can be very basic. Don't expect too much from this hotel but if you find yourself in Albany I would recommend.

The hotel is under new ownership, and gas been remodeled, and the staff is VERY friendly, but the site needs to be cleaner.

Have stayed at Merry Acres many times over the years, and yes, it had become dated and run-down. It was sold recently to two gentlemen who had the desire to restore it to it's premier status. The motel was fully booked, except for those rooms being renovated. New carpets, fresh paint, new mattresses, the addition of a cocktail lounge and restaurant are in the works. It is quiet, the front desk folks are helpful, and you can't beat the free hot breakfast. The kitchen ladies make excellant coffee! The suites have kitchens with refridgerators, microwaves, coffee makers, and dishwashers. the dining room has a table with chairs, the living room has a couch, chairs, and TV. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom, closet, dresser, clock, and TV. Your pet can stay with you in some of the rooms and there is an area to walk your dog. There is a pool and playground, also. What more could you ask ?

We are from New York and we travel to Florida every year and like to take a pit stop at this particular hotel chain. It is nice and quiet pit stop to make on the long road trip. I met the new management and they told us to come back next you for the new renovations. Can't wait to see the improvements next year.Good value for the money. Great swimming pool with nice landscaping and scenery.

Room Tip: Just ask the front desk people, they will provide the guidance you need of the different room option...

We were here for a convention and stayed here one night. I found no problems with the room except the carpet needs to be cleaned some. Other than that, the rest of the room was clean and beds were comfy. A great plus is the hot breakfast with eggs, grits, bacon, sausage, waffles and biscuits. If hot breakfast isn't your thing, they have cereal, danishes, oatmeal, etc. It's in a central location, about two miles from the mall and a few miles from the civic center, downtown area.

Stayed at the Merry Acres Inn for a two day conference. Needless to say this was a stay that did not meet our standards. The hotel is an older property that needs to be updated. Some of the issues we noted in our room was the carpet was extremely dirty and needed to be replaced. The room was not clean especially the bathroom. There was a good amount of dirt in all of the corners and the dust on top of the tile in the bathroom was like it had not been cleaned for a good period of time. The air conditioning was an older unit and made quite a bit of noise when it started, enough to wake one out of a sound sleep. The furniture had handles with only one screw attaching them to the draw fronts.The individuals staffing the front desk were very friendly.
I read the reviews before I made the reservations and thought it was not bad. Do not understand how it got such great reviews. Many of the conference attendees made comments about the lack of cleanliness in their room and the need for a remodel.

This hotel has FAR MORE than meets the eye. Decent room with table/2 chairs, nice full length mirrors, heating lamps in bathroom, refrigerator AND microwave, snack machines, pool, free popcorn and cookies, a FULL FREE BUFFET STYLE BREAKFAST WITH MEAT AND WAFFLES and the sweetest manager and staff I've ever met at a hotel. I'm hooked now forever when I travel here. The biggest bonus if all.....airport shuttle to the Albany regional airport. Plus free wifi and outside your room door parking!!!! I love it here!!!
