The frontage is far smaller than the actual motel/hotel. The individual rooms are modern and up-to-date. The bed was a bit small but I did ask for a queen. loved the wood panel flooring. The complimentary breakfast was real grits, breakfast meats and eggs-a waffle iron was available. The back court around the pool was very quaint and welcoming. Very...

Clean room, nice staff and the front building is really nice and the bar area is usually full of friendly locals. They advertise a breakfast, but it's over at 9 am, why it's over so early I do not know....

The room was renovated and nicely decorated, but the bathroom floor was dirty and full of hair. It was noisy late at night and after 2am when the pub closed. The free continental breakfast was okay. Bed was reasonably comfortable. Front desk staff was nice. They offer a shuttle service to a few local restaurants which is a nice option....

Spent a week with a conference at Merry Acres Inn. What a great location for a state-wide conference. The accommodations were excellent, the staff all over the grounds were very helpful and professional, the overall set-up allows for many group and separate activities to take place all in one location. Clean, professional, and easily accessible to the overall region. Definitely,...

My stay at The Merry Acres Inn was very different, I usually stay at a Marriott, so this was a very different environment. It wasn't bad, because at check in you get a voucher for a complimentary alcohol beverage and complimentary breakfast. The room is ok but you can definitely tell that property has been there for a loooonnnggg time!

We are snowbirds traveling from Michigan to Florida and we will go out of our way to stay in the Merry Acres Inn. We love the clean rooms, comfortable beds and the music on the front porch. The first time I called and the person at the front desk said "turn around and come back you will not be sorry"...

The room/bathroom was dirty, unenviting and noisy. Every time the air conditioner came on it woke us up. The bathroom light was connected to the exhaust fan and sounded like an airplane about to take off. The outside noise, from traffic, was disturbing. If we had not arrived so late we would have made other arrangements. The place was priced...

My husband stayed here while working in the area. He injured himself and I drove from Houston to pick him up. He could not say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff was. The inn is great, I love the retro feel. This was the first time I I ever saw a square tub! Plenty of hot, not warm,...

Thank you so much for the review. We do appreciate your kind words and hope you will be our guest again soon. Square tub is a little mystery to me also, but with plenty of warm water it works. Glad you enjoyed the your bath.

An older multi-building one story inn that has been renovated maintaining the original history while offering the comfort and amenities of much newer properties.

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
