Residence Inn Amelia Island
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Fernandina Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Eight of us stayed at this hotel in the middle of the Shrimp Festival. Thankfully it wasn't located in the center of the noisy festival. Good, spacious, well-maintained rooms. Helpful staff. Good quality hot breakfast is included. You can't go wrong with this place.

Room Tip: Get a room that doesn't face the front parking lot.

We are on day 6 of 10 and loving everything about our stay here.
We are in a "studio" room with a full kitchen. It's clean, quiet and absolutely perfect. The staff is super helpful and the perfect example of "Southern Hospitality". The breakfasts (included) are a good way to start the day - and Dottie - the "breakfast lady" is a joy to be around every day.
They also have complementary special evenings like Manager's toast night with free drinks and cheese and crackers (Mondays), BBQ night with drinks (Wed) and Nacho night (most Fridays). This cuts down on dinners we need to buy.
The location is perfect for getting around the island as well.
All in all - the perfect place for a perfect vacation.

My husband and I recently stayed here during the annual shrimp festival and we could not have been more pleased. Excellent customer service! Room, pool, grounds, common areas = all spotless! Hot breakfast buffet = awesome! Two blocks and a very easy walk from the beach. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

Room Tip: We were in a suite on the 2nd floor overlooking the green area which was lovely!

We arrived at Residence Inn with no reservation and asked the front desk personnel we wished to see the room first; he was very gracious and with no fuss gave us the key to the room. The room (rather suite) had adequate space to accommodate three adults. Comfortable bed, silent air-conditioning.The refrigerator with small kitchen was convenient. The personnel were genuinely friendly and helpful.
The point of improvement in my opinion is perhaps to use real plates and silverware instead of plastics and Styrofoam for their hotel breakfast to be to be in-line with their green philosophy.

1st the good things--a nice walk to the ocean-2 blocks. A couple of good restaurants close.
Decent size room; nice bed. Very friendly and helpful staff . Easy parking and a nice pool/patio area. Breakfast was like most Res Inn , decent variety of items

Not so good--on cking in asked if it was a dog room;1st floor as requested, told it was and we would have to go to 2nd floor to avoid that type of room-did a quick ck and stayed. That night before sitting on couch noticed many, many dog hairs. We got rid of them and sat on towels--I know we should of said something but we didn't -my mistake because housekeeping overall was just barely ok so we lived w/it- the worst housekeeping (cleaning) I have ever seen at a Marriott.
The full kitchen was on the very low end of supplies--no juice/highball glasses (do not have them-I asked),no cutting knives (one small steak knife),and we didn't but we truly believe we could not have fixed a full dinner --missing many items--they might have some but the ones I did ask for they didn't have/provide--so . Also the worst equipped kitchen at a Marriott (Res Inn)
Breakfast--they crammed way to many tables into dining area, you could not walk from your table to serving area w/o threading your way thru a circulatory route and/or bumping people.
Need to remove at least 6-8 tables.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at the Residence Inn Amelia Island. I’m glad to hear you were pleased with the location of the hotel and our friendly service staff. We do have some wonderful nearby restaurants and the beach access is very convenient.
I am sorry that your suite was not properly stocked and I apologize for the lack of support from housekeeping. Our team prides ourselves on providing exemplary service and when your expectations are not met a thorough review is conducted. Providing a complimentary full breakfast to our guests is an important responsibility. Attendance to breakfast can certainly become popular. Sometimes larger groups may shift tables out of the designated locations making it difficult to mobilize. The hotel does provide a dining area both inside as well as outside on the Tides Terrace which can provide a nice option to enjoy your meal.
Thank you for staying with us. I look forward to providing outstanding hospitality for future visits.

We were here for a business trip recently. The hotel is clean, good service, good food, great rooms. Each room is a suite, with a separate kitchen and living room. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are in the area.

We wanted a beach vacation and this hotel fit the bill! This hotel is on Sadler Road and is only a 10 minute walk to the beach. The rooms were perfect, just like a 1 bedroom apartment. Plenty of room for 3 or 4 people. The bed was very comfortable. There was also a pullout sofa, although i didn't try it's comfort level.
The staff was nice, the pool and jacuzzi were nice. We had breakfast included in our rate and it was above average. There is a nature trail behind the hotel that looked nice to walk on, but it rained during our visit and we wanted to spend the dry hours on the beach.
