If there’s a hub of social activity in Albany, Georgia, it’s Merry Acres Inn. Not only is it one of the few, independent accommodation options in the area, but it’s also a local hangout. Built in 1952, this motel-style inn features rooms with exterior entrances surrounding the Manor House Pub, pool, and other amenities. It’s located two miles from downtown Albany’s attractions and the owners also have a number of area restaurants that they offer shuttle services to nightly. They have a popular happy hour, which guests are always invited to, as well as breakfast daily.
I’ve had the pleasure of staying at Merry Acres twice on two separate visits to Albany and slept well both times. Rooms are large and include comfortable beds, phones, alarm clocks with iPhone docks, a desk to work from, a television, coffee maker, microwave, closet, and large bathroom. Larger rooms have a pull out couch and there is also the presidential suite and the Paula Deen Cottage for larger parties. Guests also have access to the inn’s pool, fitness center, laundry facilities, business center, and room service.
It’s the ideal base for your trip to Albany, whether it’s for business or pleasure.
