Kitchen has stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker with a small dining set to the side. Nice sized bathroom - not huge but not...

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...

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....

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,...
