My grandparents have been coming here since my mother was young, my mom has come here for years, and brings all my family every few years. You'd think they would be a little nicer to their guests. My mother drove down with my brother and daughter from Michigan, and were there first. One of the rooms had a leak in... More

We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay with us, however there are things that I must address. First, you made a reservation for a 2 bedroom unit that sleeps six. When your family arrived with nine people I did have a concern. We have, as most hotels do, a maximum allowed capacity due to... More

Awesome price, Great location, Beautiful Beach. The hotel was clean and comfortable. However the pull out couch is only about 2 inches deep so if you have bigger kids, I dont think they will be to comfortable. But I will say, a little discomfort for the view and the beach is always tolerable.

We have stayed at the Merriweather Resort countless times through the years and have loved it every single time we've been! The resort pool overlooks the Blvd., as well as the beach and ocean! Quiet, well maintained, and Merrijo is the best manager of ANY place we have ever stayed! She remembers all of her guests by name, and even... More

We were there through an RCI exchange. Because it was pet friendly, we expected it to be less than wonderful. What a great surprise that not only was the staff VERY pet-friendly, but the resort was better than expected. It was small and a bit older and the kitchen could have been better stocked but the murphy bed was surprisingly... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week back in January. We had a one bedroom unit, and it felt very much like home. There was a casual atmosphere, staff and other guest were very friendly, and we couldn't have asked for a better location. Restaurants and stores were in walking distance, and the ocean was directly across the... More

We discovered this little gem last summer vacation. We wanted a place close to the beach (you just have to cross the street), restaurants and shopping. This place has everything we needed! I loved the room, it was clean and spacious, has everything you need in the kitchen. If you want to save money on breakfast and lunch, just buy... More

This is the second time we stayed at the Merriweather and it was just perfect. Mary Jo was so accomodating and she loved our bulldog Murphy. So pet friendly we intend to return in November and can't wait. Our favorite vacation spot. The location can't be beat right across from the beach

Just returned from our annual Florida trip. My wife, son, and I stayed for four days at the Merriweather. It was our second stay there. Our room was comfortable, spacious, and spotlessly clean. The Merriweather is directly across the street from the beach and a short walk from all of the beachfront activity. It is two doors from the Ritz-Carlton,... More
