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... More

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. The location is absolutely perfect ... across the street from the beach and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. MaryJo is a hands on manager and she has a staff that makes... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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 It's not a fancy place and decor is outdated but amenities are fine.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... More

This is a very unassuming looking resort. Located right near the Ritz Carlton Hotel, it is right across the street from the beach. From the moment we arrived, everything has been perfect . Check in was a snap. Mary Jo was a delight to work with, and she even upgraded our accommodations. The units are mostly refurbished with very nice... More

Kind and friendly staff. Best rates. Immaculate rooms. Great big pool. Ocean Front View. Dog friendly. Million dollar Location! Bike rentals right next door. Millionaire shopping district 2.2 miles away. Tacky souvy shopping two minutes away. Every single thing you can imagine at your fingertips. This is a place that time forgot.
