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.... More

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.... More

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. There are always pets in the office to fall in love with. The place is always spotless and the pool is so warm and inviting. The resort is literally across the street... More

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... More

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.... More

The resort is not new but has been well kept and updated. The employees have been there for many years, so each stay is like going to visit old friends. The facility is pet friendly and has a very casual atmosphere. There are complimentary beach chairs in the office as well as towels for use at the beach. Mary Jo,... More

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... More

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... More
