“I fell in love with this place. A perfect vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2011

I have just returned from The Merriweather Resort and plan to go back as soon as possible. Located on the strip, it is a quaint pet friendly resort, low-key, comfortable, clean and the people who work there make you feel welcome. The front office supplies beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels- even suntan lotion! There are grills for cooking out- over looking the amazing Fort Lauderdale beach. I especially liked the convenience of the beach right across the street. Sunrises with a cup of coffee, walk across the street on to the beach and enjoy the show! Mary Jo is the manager and a delightful, knowledgable and welcoming. Missy is also at the front desk and was so helpful. Full kitchen too.
If you want a perfect spot to spend a week in Fort Lauderdale, stay here!

Room Tip: I would recommend the second floor for best views. Room 108 is very noisy- above the laundry room.

One of the best little Resorts we stay at...incredibly clean everytime. It was such a joy to see Mary Jo... everyone working there makes you feel at home...

The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the resort is a block away from beachplace and right across the street from Ft.Lauderdale beach...

We hope to be back next year...

Second time here in two years. Zero Complaints. Such a comfortable, clean place and great location for all ages right on the beach. Next door to Fat Tuesdays/Hooters and a bunch of bars and restaurants looking out over the beach. All staff and guests were very friendly. The resort is smaller so you end up meeting everybody and their pets. So as a favor to other guests and the staff, don't go here if you're a negative person and intend on spreading that energy around. The staff was also very accommodating to my needs Anybody who talks bad about Mary Jo probably came to Merriweather looking for and creating problems. We'll be back next year.

The first impression you get from this hotel is that it is incredibly worn-out, and as we know, first impressions are usually right. Situated right between huge, beautiful and classy hotels Merryweather looks like a thorn in the eye. The pool was small and incredible boring, the staff was no where to be found and our air condition was broken and no one came to fix it. There were cockroaches in our room and the sofa-bed was not particularly easy to pull out.

However, not everything is bad about this hotel. The location is amazing! It is right next to an amazing beach and if you're lucky you get to see sea turtles laying their eggs. Furthermore the rooms were usually cleaned every day and the bed in the actual bedroom was really comfortable.
