I've stayed here before, but each time I come it seems to be getting better and better. They recently updated the kitchens and they're gorgeous now. I love staying here! It's so convenient to the beach. All you have to do is walk outside and you're there! I would totally recommend this place!

I must start off by saying that Mary Jo (the manager) is an angel. She made my stay along with my 4 year old daughter a wonderful one! This place is superb, its very cozy, quiet, cute, comfortable I just cant say enough good things about it. Everything was clean, from the parking area, the pool all the way to... More

Great place to stay! Very, very clean. The staff, from the manager to the maid were so friendly and courteous. We went on a long weekend gate-a-way and truly enjoyed our stay at the Merriweather. We will be back.

My children and I recently stayed at the Merriweather Resort. The location was perfect. It is directly across from the beach and close to shops and restaurants. They also have a pool area which was very popular with the kids. The resort manager was very friendly and accommodating. The resort offers towels, beach chairs and umbrellas to borrow daily. You...

Manager Mary Jo was super nice and extremely accommodating when our flights were delayed and we couldn't arrive until after the office closed. Clean studio apartment room. Front desk woman was also extremely helpful in getting us a taxi when the one we reserved didn't show up.

First let me say, I can't imagine ANYONE saying a bad word about Mary Jo, as the previous reviewer did. That person clearly didn't stay here, and must have called at a very busy time. Mary Jo is one of the most friendly, accommodating people you will ever meet. She bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable, and she... More

Great place! We had the penthouse, which was huge and very clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. Add the view of ocean from our deck and you can't beat it. Great location for shopping and restaurants, plenty within easy walking distance.

I've seen all the positive reviews here, but I can say that my family NOT be staying at the Merriweather Resort. My conversation with Mary Jo about reserving a room was probably the most unusual response I've ever heard from a resort. It was vague, unprofessional, and downright rude. She told me by email the 2 bedroom condo I was... More

Clean. All the hotel prices in the area are insane. This place is reasonable and again, clean. All the employees are very nice and the place has a lot of character.

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... More
