“Another Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

This is the third time we have stayed here before cruising out of Jacksonville (only about 20 min to the Port) and once again we had a wonderful stay! This hotel is right in the middle of the historic downtown area of Fernandina Beach, so you can walk everywhere you want to go to eat or shop. Amelia Island and the beach is only a 10 minute car ride away. We also visited Fort Clinch which is very interesting if you enjoy history. Very beautiful ride through moss covered trees back to the fort.

I highly recommend this hotel for your next stay!

We stayed here one night on our way back to Virginia. We had been to Amelia Island years ago and so we knew the Fernandina Beach area. The hotel was right in the center of the downtown area with all the shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is different than most, historic looking and quaint. Our standard room was smaller than at most Hampton Inns but managed to still be comfortable and have everything we needed. We ate at Le Clos, a small restaurant that was literally right across the street (would definitely recommend them but make reservations). The breakfast area was up on the 2nd floor, very large and inviting with a view out many windows to the pool area. The train is near but we only heard it once during the night, so no biggie. Would stay here again.

This is a great location, right downtown within walking distance of great restaurants, sightseeing tours, and museums. Clean room, nice amenities if you opt to upgrade,
and the breakfast was constantly maintained by two employees (and it isn't even season!).
Yes, there is a train close by but the sound is not obnoxious and the sound in your room
is so muted I am not sure most people would even realize it was there! The front desk
was very helpful with local recommendations of things to do. The drive to the beach is short
and I think this is the best location you can choose.

We experienced a very comfortable and restful stay. My wife enjoyed the whirlpool bath in the room. It was also well appreciated to have a refrigerator in the room for keeping our liquid spirits cooled and a free WiFi internet connection.On the negative side we would have appreciated a real quality breakfast over the complimentary one served with paper cups and plastic knives and spoons.

My hubby sent me here for a get away, he read the reviews and was impressed. I was upgraded to a suite that was nice. I had finger nail clippings in the kitchen area on the floor and the bedroom in front of the tv was toe nail clippings, had food crumbs in the sofa. YUCK! I was on the second floor and could not use the internet, went downstairs to contect and brought my computer back up but not luck. Was told that internet service was hard to get on the second floor.

Room Tip: Anything but the second floor no internet service.

This is a great property with a lot more charm than an average Hampton Inn. It's well-kept, immaculately-clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's on the water in the heart of downtown Fernandina Beach with lots of qauint restaurants within walking distance.
Be aware that there is a night train that runs directly adjacent to the hotel, so bring earplugs and you'll be OK.

Stayed here 1 night and it was a wonderful stay. They even upgraded us upon checkin to a suite. Front desk guy, Todd I think, was super helpful and very friendly, accomodating, etc. Even the fold out sofa was comfy. Excellent location to the main drag where all the restaurants are. Todd recommended a local place and we had an excellent meal. Got there early as suggested and glad we did. It was packed. Ciao Restaurant. The drive to the beach was about 1.5 miles straight down main street so very easy to get to and a very nice beach with soft white sand.

Room Tip: Ask for harbor view room.
