I've been an actor for the last 45 years, so I've moved around a lot and stayed in many hotels and motels. I've never enjoyed staying in any of them half as much I have at Merry Acres in Albany, GA. It feels like I'm living in a small, friendly village. The staff is very helpful; the complimentary breakfasts are... More

I travel for work and have stayed here multiple times. The front desk is always a pleasure and easy to check in. The rooms are awesome, I love the floors not being carpet.

Who would guess we would end up in Albany, GA when we had to evacuate Florida to Hurricane Matthew? This Inn made all the difference in a stressful situation.

We found Merry Acres as we were searching for a pet friendly motel to escape Hurricane Matthew. We were pleasantly surprised with the welcoming atmosphere and comfortable room for 4 adults, 1 child and a dog. The room was decorated nicely, the bathroom needed updating though.

My room was disgusting. Obviously hadn't been cleaned- there was pubic hair in the shower. I thought I was going to vomit and it made me really question whether or not I wanted to sleep in the bed. Thank god our stay was only one night. Had I had any other option, I would have taken it

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Merry Acres is known for its impeccable service, spotless accommodations, and beautifully landscaped grounds. The large variety of amenities make it a place where you can relax around the secluded swimming pool and enjoy the shade of the gazebo; work out in the state-of-the-art PT GYM; enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast buffet; or utilize the 24 hour business center with two personal computers, high-speed internet, fax, copier, and printer. The rooms themselves are tastefully decorated yet comfortable, with all rooms offering a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, iron, ironing board, hairdryers, and high-speed internet.A particularly attractive feature of the Merry Acres Campus is the 5,900 square foot Event & Conference Center. For decades, it's been a favored spot for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, banquets, corporate seminars and retreats, class and family reunions, showers, birthday parties, and fundraisers. That list has grown to include private parties, cocktail parties, and wine tastings.The appeal of Merry Acres Event Center is its ability to offer a number of various configurations to provide just the right amount of space for each group. But whether a large formal soiree or a smaller, more personal gathering, Merry Acres Event Center coordinates with your particular theme and enables a one-stop approach for your guests' lodging, meeting, and catering needs.In fact, the Stewbos Catering service works within the Merry Acres Restaurant, located within the Event Center. While the Merry Acres Restaurant is open daily for Breakfast and each Sunday from 11:00AM - 2:30PM for our Southern Lunch Buffet, the enormous kitchen now serves as the headquarters for Stewbos Catering on a daily basis. More recently, Merry Acres has added a full transportation to its list of services, including a complimentary shuttle van service for Hotel Guests and City Club Members. We are proud to announce our newest additions to the transportation service - a 1939 Studebaker and a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, both available for rent for your next special occasion! ... more   less
