We stay at the Merriweather often and every time it is a delight. The facility functions so well and is maintained to the highest standards. The staff is warm and friendly and the location couldn't be better. The beautiful beach s directly across the street and restaurants and convenience stores are within walking distance. Highly recommend.

It's so nice to hear that you loved it here. I agree, The Merriweather offers just as much if not more (friendly low key charm) than the large hotels. We look forward to having you here soon.

I just got back from another stay at the Merriweather Resort in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This resort is super clean, the staff are friendly, conveniently located to shops, restaurants and the beach. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Ft. Lauderdale. Great Place! P.S. I will be back.

Well, actually across the street from the beach but no hotels are "on" the beach in Fort Lauderdale Beach. 2 minute walk to CVS with groceries, drinks, and anything you may have forgotten. Another 2 minutes and you are in the midst of restaurants and bars. Bring your own shampoo. The rooms are large, the pool area is nice to...

We have stayed here the past 4-5 years and always had an enjoyable stay. The exterior is a bit dated, but the rooms are clean and well-equipped.

This is a reasonably priced gem sitting next to the high priced high rises. As a timeshare owner, you feel like family each year when you come back for your week. But even if your are not an owner and just renting a room, you are still treated like family. It's right across from the beach, but also there is...

We have visited the Merriweather every winter season for the past decade. Very reasonable price and convenience to everything on the beach front. The pet-human friendly place is so nice to see considering the hustle & bustle of a big city environment. The staff are actually human, and operate without a corporate handbook with a set of restrictive rules guiding...

I wish I could give this place a good review. but, to no fault of the staff, it has serious issues. It is right on the beach, with easy access to all the pleasures of Ft Lauderdale Beach. Parking is a serious problem, however. Limited spaces, no guarantee that you will find a place in what is a heavily congested...

Spent a week here in August. The location is great. Apart from the excellent view which instantly relaxes you, it's walking distance to restaurants, drugstores, bars, etc. Beach is a few steps away across the street. It's not a fancy place and decor is outdated but amenities are fine. If you need WiFi during your stay, it may be a...
