“AWESOME!!!!!!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

After we checked out, they still provided a free shuttle to anywhere in town and back. Charlene was great at the front desk! A stone's throw from the beach. Fully stocked kitchen with ice machines on every floor. A very, very large free breakfast each morning offering anything you might like. Nice pool with fire pit located just outside pool area. Plenty of parking. Nice lobby area with wide screen TV.

Room Tip: Top floor was totally quiet.

Had a wonderful suite, great acomodations and reasonable pricing for the area. Free Breakfast was better than most, NO complaints here. Would go back in a minute...Excellent small kitchen area in room, with refrig, cook top, full size coffee maker.

Room Tip: Our room was excellent, can't speak of others.

Not only do we love Amelia Island, but we love the Residence Inn. This was our third stay there and the only time we have been there in the summer. Although the hotel was full, it was still very quiet at night and there was always a place to sit at breakfast. Check in was a little slower than usual (but we were also early) but other than that, it was another great visit. There was a manager's reception one of the nights we were there which consisted of nachos and cheese along with chili, cold drinks, beer, wine, and even cookies for dessert. This was complimentary as is the breakfast which has ample choices and changes daily. The rooms do have kitchens which is convenient for either preparing your own food or just keeping things cold in the refrigerator. I know there are other hotels to choose from but we keep coming back because of the quality of service provided.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. the hotel was busy with families because it is the middle of the summer. However, our room was quiet. It was extremely clean with one exception, some dropped a nail polish bottle so the carpet in fron to the sink had red stains. The studio suite was spacious for us. Location is convenient to beach, but a little far with chairs, umbrella, etc. However, there is ample free public beach parking. Breakfast was adequate in terms of offerings. The manager was very visible on the property and very pleasant. I even saw him picking up around the pool area. When we return to Amelia Island, we will definitely stay here again.

The staff treats anyone who looks younger than 30 like criminals. None of the staff smiles or asks how you're doing, even if you say hi first (except Shane, but he's extremely overzealous). The only time I was approached by a staff member was after I saw 5 or 6 of them smoking outside the hotel; they asked me how old I was because I, "look 15, and shouldn't be smoking."

It would have also been nice to have been told that the six of us (4 people 2 dogs) would receive 0% housekeeping due to lack of communication on the hotel's part. When confronted about the issue they offered no solutions and it took FIVE (5) CALLS over the course of 24hours to obtain sheets for a fold out bed.

Don't waste your time, because they'll surely waste yours.

RIAmeliaIsland, General Manager at Residence Inn Amelia Island, responded to this review, 6 August 2014
Thank you for taking a moment to provide feedback about your stay.

I very much apologize that your interactions with our staff were disappointing. The scenarios you describe are not our norm and certainly not up to our standards. As a team we focus on offering a clean and friendly environment for our guests, and so it concerns me that you weren't treated with more care. I have already taken steps to address the staff about the situation so that this won't happen again in the future.

Your experience with housekeeping is also out of the ordinary for us. We treasure our guests with pets and typically take possibly even greater care in communicating with those guests to determine how they'd like to handle housekeeping service in light of their furry companion. Guidelines to our housekeeping policy for guests with pets can be found on the pet agreement that is presented upon checkin.

Again, I appreciate your feedback and will turn this into a learning opportunity for our team.
If you travel to Amelia again in the future, we'd love the opportunity to earn those other two stars.

Safe travels,
Bob Hartman
General Manager

The staff went out of their way to be helpful. I had two rooms, one could have used a good cleaning of the carpet and overall dusting. Beds were comfortable. Location...can walk to the beach, however, if you are carrying cooler, chairs, etc....I would and did drive. 2 1/2-3 blocks from beach.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room away from the pool as it is busy most hours of the day.

My husband and I stayed here for one night. It was, expectedly, full of families with children because it is the middle of the summer. However, our room was quiet.

It was extremely clean with two exceptions, a stained washcloth and a sticky shower curtain liner.

The one bedroom suite was spacious. They upgraded us from a studio suite, which was much to our liking.

Location is convenient to beach, but a little far with chairs, umbrella, etc. However, there is ample free public beach parking.

Breakfast was adequate in terms of offerings, but could have been a little larger in food choices and in the seating area.

The manager was very visible on the property and very pleasant. I even saw him picking up around the pool area.

If I return to Amelia Island, I will definitely stay here again.
