I would describe this as pretty much a Hampton Inn at the beach. I am not complaining really, but there are things to know: Good: On the beach, priced reasonably, clean and quiet. Bed was quite comfortable. Not so good: next to public beach parking lot (our ocean view was over the cars), rooms are quite small, almost no closet,... More

Just two minutes to the beach umbrellas and chairs, short elevator ride to the roof top deck, short elevator ride down for the cooked to order full breakfast, and the staff could not be nicer! Rooms are a bit odd due to layout of building, but you have all you need...for a good buy ask for 306, pool view studio... More

We just returned from a week at the Seaside Amelia. First of all, the location is amazing! It's easy to find since it's on the beach, and it's barely a five minute drive to the historic old town. If you like going out for a walk on the beach or even camping out on the shore with a good book,... More

A small quiet homelike, not commercial Inn just a few steps from the beach and the Atlantic Ocean, who could ask for anything else. From check-in to the hot breakfast all is done in a friendly, and very efficient way. It is spotless. The staff exceptionally accommodating , the Manager Miss Olivia is like someone welcoming you into their home.... More

This hotel is impeccably clean. The staff goes above and beyond to make your stay an excellent one. The homemade cooked to order breakfast is phenomenal. It is located right on the beach and has a small pool. There is a happening restaurant right behind it on the beach that has good food and music. I have stayed at this... More

Room for three is small but comfortable. Staff is friendly and breakfast offerings were plentiful. But the breakfast room is dominated by a single TV playing Fox News. It made breakfast uncomfortable for us and others. Wouldn't it be possible to show something less partisan and outright rude on Sunday morning? Not a good way to start the week. If... More

Dear Jeffery N, Thank you for your recent visit with us, and we appreciate your feedback. After investigating with our staff, it has been brought to my attention that a guest changed the channel to a news station on one of our TV's in our dining area. The TV's are usually programmed to The Weather Channel in the morning, to... More

Somehow I forgot to review this cool inn when we visited February 9-11,2016 while on a road trip from Philadelphia to Anna Maria Island. We had the corner room above the lobby and were really pleased with this location which provided a slight view of the beach. The inn is situated near the ocean and a walking path which makes...
