Great location! Very clean! Reasonable rates! Friendly staff! I can't say enough good things. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. We had an efficiency so we stocked the frig with beverages and snacks. The small resort atmosphere was very pleasant. No time spent on elevators. On this area of the beach the hotels are all across the street, but...

I love this wonderful place. You can see the beach everywhere. Just a perfect view of the beach. It’s near all hot places to be, you can eat in great restaurant, go dancing, take a swim in the beach or pool. This place is good for a family vacation to a business trip.

Several of us stayed at the Merriweather the night before leaving on a cruise. Rooms are actually small condos. Living room has small flat-screen TV with a sofa, one chair and a pull-down queen-size Murphy bed. Kitchen has stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker with a small dining set to the side. Nice sized bathroom - not huge but not...

Before you read any further, book your room! I LOVE this place!! Right in the heart of the Fort Lauderdale strip, you’ll find the cutest little hotel/time share resort the Merriweather Resort. Although I live in Florida, I decided to take a little stay-cation and made a long weekend of it. The staff was kind and courteous, and extremely personable....

Amazing small resort which gives huge living space, full kitchen, delightful pool perfect for relaxing or family play, and staff that genuinely cares about your personal experience. View from our room was amazing, and easy cross of A1A gives direct access to Lifeguard, playground, and water sports. I block to CVS, Hooters, Maui Nicks and my favorite, Lulu's Bait Shack....

This is a GREAT place to spend your vacation. The people, including Mary Jo, Missy, Jeanie, Joyce, Barbara, and Celia always make sure you're having a wonderful stay.

I stayed here a few times in the 70's and when I returned to Ft Lauderdale 3 years ago while staying at the Ritz, I saw the Merriweather next door. Surprised that it was still there, I knew I would check it out at some point. Well, we stayed here for a night this trip before we spent the weekend...

My husband and I stayed at the Merriweather for a week for the first time at the end of May. The furnishings in the rooms are slightly dated, but the entire resort, including the rooms, is spotless. The resort allows dogs, which is why we chose the Merriweather. We brought our small dog with us and it worked out great....
