The Merriweather Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The resort is right across the street from the beach. The pool area is always clean and the perfect place to tan. The rooms are big and have a real feel of home to then. They're quiet and cool at night. The best feature are the people who work there. Mary Jo and Missy can always recommend a place for you to visit. There are always pets hanging out with them who are just as friendly as they are. Barbara, Joyce and the other ladies always make sure your room is clean and comfortable. We look forward to seeing them all again while we soak up the sun and fun in Ft. Lauderdale!

Back to the Merriweather for 6 wonderful days. Perfect weather Perfect stay, don't miss out on the best spot on the beach. Thanks to Missy and the entire staff for a always to remember Birthday Trip . I hope and plan to return very very soon and would not think of staying anywhere else . The best kept older hotel on the A1A, neat, clean and always well maintained and safe. The pool and grounds are beautiful and they are pet friendly for those in need. Don't past by this Gem of Fort Lauderdale a great family place to stay.

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

the merriweather is a 1950s low rise property with easy access to the beach and restaurants, etc. I can be on the beach before guests at neighboring properties can even leave their building. I have freinds in the area....and its nice they can come visit without the cold experiences of elevators, hallways, etc. when they knock on my door....they see and hear the ocean....not the hustle and bustle of a hall full of maids carts. I've been coming here for over 10 years, and mary jo, missy, joyce, are all helpful and nice. Often i have to make many inquiries about dates, etc as I work on air travel etc....I'm sure its no fun to juggle reservations and things for a guest 6 times before finally booking...but mary jo and missy are allways nice and understanding. the sleep sofas recently had upgraded mattresses put in...so if you have a guest who is staying with you, its better than most sleep sofas. while some like to dine out for a week while on vacation...I like to cook a little and often eat in. since i work a lot when home...i don't have time to cook much...on vacation...I can barbecue or whatever since there are grills and a full kitchen here. I don't live my life at home in one room...and I don't have to here either. the beach is great for some sun...but also great for an evening or morning walk. and while it has nothing to do with the resort....I've met some great people from all over the country here. people often sit out on the veranda to have a drink or read, enjoying the view and sound of the ocean. next door is a fancy 30 story ritz carlton....they also recognize the beach here is incredible...but I'll allways choose here...

After staying at the Hilton, Marriott, and Westin, it was time to return to traditional Floridian accommodations. We rented the penthouse, a 2 bedroom and 2 bath unit on the third floor from 12/30 - 1/7/14. It was perfect, great view, full kitchen, washer/dryer and deck. Why pay the prices of the big hotels on the beach when one can enjoy a small quaint resort such as the Merriweather. Don't get me wrong, it does not have the lavish furnishings of the big resorts but it has everything you need to enjoy a stay in Ft. Lauderdale. Seeing pets on the property gives it a home touch if you like animals. Such a great place to stay will be returning in a week for a five day stay. Emnma the cat made herself comfortable in our unit for an evening. She was a great guest.

Room Tip: The penthouse is the best.

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. We were given room 101 which was right on the beach. The staff was amazing and we were right on the beach. Wish that the pool was a little bigger but we didn't stay in the pool for long at all- especially with the ocean in front.
We were checked in way before time- which was very kind of them and gr88888 housekeeping.. My Dad was extremely impressed.
We would like to definitely thank them for their service and accommodating my 70 years old dad.

Great location, clean rooms and great staff. Be careful with your parking card, remember to put it in the car window or you will get towed. Staff are fabulous, rooms clean and spacious. Great view if beach and pet friendly. Great place to stay

Thanks for the fantastic review! Yes, parking is limited, but it's free. Parking permits are issued to only one car per unit, however there are several public parking areas very close. Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you again!
