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. Over the last few years we have stayed at a couple of the nice hotels around the Merriweather Resort but from now on when we go back to Fort... More

We dont have pets but it was sweet seeing the 2 friendly dogs in the office. The location cant be beat....Sebastian Beach is across the street and they loan... More

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

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. I have been coming here 2 to... More

I love coming here. We come just about every year. I have never not come here and meet such nice people. The rooms are clean the pool is really nice and the view is spectacular. I am sitting here writing this review looking at the ocean and the cruise ships coming in.

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... More
