Recently stayed here and was pleasently surprised. We chose this facility as our 'timeshare' swap. Although it is an older facility, with two full floors and a couple of 'penthouse ' rooms on the third floor, it is directly across the road from the beach in an area where there are no buildings on the beach side of the one-way road. It was also no problem to cross the road to the beach as there are numerous cross walks. Our room was a one bedroom unit with a living room and full kitchen with two full baths. My only concern with the room was that the sleeper sofa was not very comfortable to sit on. (cushions were breaking down) The person at the front desk was very helpful and even printed out our airline boarding passes for us so that we would would not have to do this at the airport. If you do not have your own beach chairs, check the office for borrowing them (they have a few) because we rented three chairs and an umbrella for one day for $50, to steep for us... didn't do that again. You'd be better off to go to the store, buy a couple of chairs, use them for a week, and leave them in the office upon checkout for others to use in the future. Merriweather is also close enough to walk down the street to multiple resaurants, bars, entertainment, stores...Bubba Gump being one of the reaataurants. :) We'll be back !
