My family needed to find a place that would accept our pets while our home is under construction. I wanted to make the best of a bad situation for my 2 kids, our 2 dogs & our cat. What we found at The Merriweather Resort is better than any trip to Disney, and in our own backyard. Our room has...

What a gem! The hotel is nothing fancy but great clean rooms, comfy beds. Private pool steps from the beach. The staff is wonderful, feel like you are home. Having full kitchen is nice, we like to dine at night but to eat healthy and be active the rest of the day. This was a perfect spot for us. So...

There are two chairs, a table and an ash tray right outside our neighbors doors and many times when we opened up our door, one of our neighbors were smoking. This meant we could not sit outside or open up our door for fresh air because the neighbors cigarette and/ or cigar smoke would blow into our room.
