Historical Traveller Reviews of Merrimac Beach Resort Hotel

t even consider this place unless your on spring break

from A TripAdvisor Member
Eight spring breaks in a row have allowed me to see some crazy things over the years but this place did not impress me! The bar here sucks as well as the staff.. If you want to see spring break insanity, this is NOT THE PLACE TO BE! I highly reccommend the Howard Johnson for a killer party, good wet t-shirt contest, and an endless supply of beer.

Tropic Cay is Really OK!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed at the Tropic Cay a couple years ago and let me tell you they were renovating even at the time. The rooms are Clean and very spacious. Right across from some Great beaches. Great prices as well. You can't beat the place really. I was there for almost an entire week and it only cost me about $400 dollars. I've seen much worst in the immediate area . You can't go wrong here folks and it is close to the action if you like the elbow room and shopping. Give it a try really. It has a nice pool and a bar right there. Parking is free and you can keep an eye on your car.
this is a good place. Darren , Kitchener Ontario Canada

Spring Break Gem

from A TripAdvisor Member
I give it an Excellent becuase I went there for Spring Break in 04 and you couldn't ask for a better place to stay at in Ft Lauderdale (assuming you are a poor college student like we all were). No its not the nicest place, and frankly its pretty bootleg but don't let that stop you from going there becuase the good times and freedom you have more than make up for it. I have stayed at another nearby hotel and it was like having a babysitter, with all the rules they had. At the Tropic Cay there are no rules! We were loud all day and night, drunk and crazy and threw things off the belcony and not a word was said to us. Anyone can come on the site at anytime with none of that must have a bracelet crap. Also within a mile to the Beach Place Bars, the best place to go in Ft. Lauderdale(Hooters, Sloppy Joes, Howl at the Moon, Club Iguana and more) and other bars as well. Stay here if you are looking for a great time on Spring Break.

Extremely unsafe!!! outright dangerous!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My two younger sisters and I were traveling down for a "sisters getaway weekend", and since we are all poor college students, we tried to save some money and stay at the Tropic Cay. Bad decision!!! Not only was the room DISGUSTING, but the neighborhood is OUTRIGHT DANGEROUS!!!! We were continually harrassed by shady characters and the last straw was when we caught a "peeping Tom" staring in at us at night through the broken window blinds. Needless to say we called the police and headed down the street to the Sheraton!!!

t believe they are in bussiness

from A TripAdvisor Member
this should be considered a crme.what they tell you on the net and phone is an outright lie.they ruined my family vacation to the air show.the owners should be forced to stay at there own hotel or better yet they should be in jail.the board of health must be taking pay offs to let this place stay open. please stay as far away from this place as you can.

Disgusting !!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The absolute worst experience of my life. Arrived for the Air & Sea show find an absolute dump! Filthy floors, filthy walls horible beds, broken windows, hallways soaking wet and bedroom linens laying in the water on the corridor floors and then to cap it all off, awoke in the morning to find a bed full of small bugs. When killed they were full of blood which had obviously be sucked from me overnight. What a nightmare, had to pay in advance for three nights, left after one and for this I paid $460.00. The even had the nerve to try to charge me more for a reaservation made 9 months earlier. Fortunately i had my american Express with me to prove payment had been made. Don't ever go this this dump.

Perfect Spring Break Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This place is great for spring breakers, but not for families during the spring break months. Is a party atmosphere. Great location for the beach and bars. The rooms are nothing special but the refrigarator and stove were very useful. Dont count on the maids cleaning/ changing sheets daily. I had a great time and will stay there again on future spring break trips.

Get your monies worth

from A TripAdvisor Member
LISTEN for the price this place if GREAT location, location, location IT'S PERFECT directly across from the beach which is usually not crowded non of that SOUTH BEACH (B.S.). Rooms are clean, TRUST ME U GET YOUR MONEY'S WORTH (I should get a discount for promoting this place) did I mention it's across the street from the beach...CHEERS!!!..."HAVE A GREAT STAY"

Like this place

I honestly like this place for the price. It's a basic motel in a great location. The rooms are a little worn but clean and functional. The pool area is nice and is usually heated in the winter. Based on the location of the pool, it gets alot of sunshine most of the day, this is great for laying around and reading. During the winter months, this hotel attracts mostly older retired couples who stay for several weeks at a time and a few families. I have been staying here for over five years and never seen any rowdy beer drinking people. I would recommend this place if you don't mind economy at a good price in a great location. Check ... for coupons.

please don`t think of staying

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I stayed as a weekend get away. When we go to are room after walking threw flooded hallways, i think I felt even sicker. The floors were so dirty if you dared to shower you had to leave shoes on the floor to put on or your feet wil need washed again. The walls were mildew in the corners there where mud. The tub and tile were so old they were falling off. There was smoke butts in the sink drain. The toilet seat was so worn out the paint was gone. The beds were broke half on the frames. Sheets old and dirty. the blinds were so dirty I couldn`t dream of opening them. Winows so dirty no reason to open.
Phone was broke, cable went out many times. You needed a chair to work the air. The chairs had holes in them. The worst hotel in history. They also say they have a restarant, False. What ever you do don`t stay unless your a kid out for a party........ I have pictures if anyone dares.

Top Local Tips for Fort Lauderdale

Cheapest trip to the beach from the airport! The #1 bus has 3 stops at the airport, then goes downtown. Or, get off sooner at 17th street (it has a required stop there- between the Burger King and Denny's), cross the street, and catch the #40 that goes directly to the beach. $2.50 for an all day pass...cheapest trip to the beach!

Bonnet House Not worth the money to tour the house- just read about it. The history is interesting, but the house is not all that impressing.

Be concerned... Be very concerned about your health and safety if you choose to stay at the Tropic Cay Beach Resort!
