Great staff. Very good breakfast the next morning. Very country and homespun good manners. Convenient to the major highway to Columbus. Really enjoyed my stay. Quality folks. Main house was very pretty and had a lot of charm. Rooms were serviceable.

We checked in late on a Friday and left early the following Sunday. So this was a quick trip. We did use the delivery service to order from Harvest Moon, one of the other Stewbo's properties, which is a nice option. Delivery was slower than promised. Order was correct, amd food was okay. Overall, our room was expected. We were... More

This place does NOT look like the photos that were posted. Maybe some rooms in the hotel are updated, but definitely not all of them, so you run a gamble to what quality room you will get. HORRIBLE! We stayed in the Manor House in the family suites, but for 200$ a night we didn't like it at all. The... More

Horrible is not a strong enough word for this place. We were part of a Family Reunion on July 8, 2016. My family requested two suites at a cost of 200.00 each night for each suite for 2 nights. We were totally shocked at the quaility of the suites. The window sills were cracking and in need of painting. The... More

We visit this hotel to attend a relatives funeral. Believe me it is not as good as it looks on the picture. This hotel needs to work on the cleanliness of the rooms .

The room was in need of some repairs. The tub needed refinishing. The BR tile needed cleaning. The shelving in the BR was rusted and didn't look like it had been cleaned very good from the previous guest. The outlet in the BR didn't work therefore the office had to bring a hair dryer (which they did promptly). The room... More

Merry Acres Inn is a great place to stay. Very economical, pet friendly, and a very friendly staff. It's not a new place, but it's very comfortable.

Merry Acres is a quaint and peaceful place to stay in Albany GA. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The restaurant on location has a variety of items to choose from and the bar is a great place to wind down after a long day. Live music, great food, excellent service.... Love this place.

This place brings back southern hospitality. Friendly staff and awesome food. Location is excellent. They have security so no problems. Rooms were very clean and great shower pressure. Towels were not your sandpaper type you find at other hotels.

As a tradesman travels quite frequently and has to stay in places that are convenient and moderately priced this is an oasis. Just a bit of Americana that is so seldom found. Everything is delightful clean and pleasant. Built in 1954 it has charm that cannot be replicated. Not fancy just perfect.

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
