“The Best Value for the Price we have Experienced!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2011

Stayed one night and would highly reccomend. This is a MOTEL, so come with that expectation. We have paid more for a grungy Super 8. This motel is charming and clearly takes pride in it's service. It is old but the rooms are immaculate and well decorated. There is a pool house with washer,dryer, ice, etc. Free Wi-Fi in rooms worked great. If you don't want to go out, you can have dinner delivered from a restyaurant right down the street, Texas something. Your stay comes with a complimentary hot breakfast buffett of REAL food. The staff exhibited old-time Southern hospitality. Altogether, a treat. The best for the money we have ever had,

I reserved a room at this hotel simply because my first choice was sold out due to the marathon; however, if I ever travel to Albany again, I will definitely stay here. The room was more like a furnished apartment than a hotel room. It was spacious, clean, and included a micro-fridge and microwave.

Didn't realize when I booked this room that it is an older hotel bought by Comfort Suites. Furnishing in rooms are stained and dingy. Very disappointing when compared to the newer Comfort Suites where I have stayed.

Loved this place. The buildings are spaced apart, so it does not feel crowded, even when full.
Plenty of parking with easy access to the room. The pool was clean and open 24hrs.
Breakfast was excellent, with eggs, bacon, sausage etc. Not just carbs and bread.
I would stay there again and recommend this hotel to anyone. Security guard on duty all night.

My wife and I stayed here with our two toddlers while in town to see family. We would normally stay at a little nicer hotel, but are in a cash crunch this summer. While the room was a little dated, it was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the room was larger than expected (including the bathroom). The hotel was pretty full, but we had no noise problems. The pool is larger than most in this price range. The breakfast was the best free breakfast I've had at a hotel in the last several years- great selection made by little old ladies who seemed to really care about the guests.
We will definitely stay here again when we go to Albany.

We stayed at Merry Acres for two weeks every month for almost a year. Over this time we stayed in different room, or in the apartments. Both were clean and comfortable. If anything needed attention a call to the front desk was all it took. Everything was handled professionally and in a very timely manner, each time, every time. This is an older property, BUT IT IS KEPT PRISTINE and the landscaping is beautiful with rose bushes and flowers, and large grassy areas.
Ms. Day the head of house keeping, Ms Trina, assit to Ms Day, Cathy the manager, and Celeste at the front desk were always friendly helpful and cheery. Ms Day would even come to visit our dogs, and make sure everything was to our liking.
We travel often and stay at many Quality Inns, and each time I thank our lucky stars for finding Merry Acres to be our part time home. I wish more Quality Inns were like this one!

I've stayed at this hotel 4 times, I travel over 90 nights a year, there isn't a better value in the southeast,staff , room comfort ,quiet and real breakfast service are the best professional and accommodating , not the doughnuts and make a waffle with watered down juice. And if you are there on Tuesday or Thursday they serve wine and beer with hot snacks.

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.
