Reviewed 30 October 2013

Our family had a family reunion here. The rooms were all exceptionally clean. All employees were very accomadating and friendly. It was nice to have a large beautiful pool on site and also be on the ocean front with nice beach. This property if a great asset to Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island in northeast Florida.

Room Tip: We had rooms scattered around motel and had no complaints from family members.

My husband and I were looking for a place on the beach and this motel was perfect. We had an efficiency (with frig and microwave), the room was very clean and smelled fresh the whole time we were there. The office and the surroundings were also very clean, the coffee and breakfast pastries very fresh. The staff was very polite and informative. The location was perfect for discovery trips to the Historic District and for finding all types of restaurant fare. And to see the sunrise from our room was beautiful.

Room Tip: If you want a frig/microwave, book an efficiency. When we were there, it didn't cost any more t...

Great place to stay for a family weekend getaway. My family of 5 stayed in a standard room comfortably. The motel is right on beach and close to dining, shopping and the attractions of Amelia Island. The pool was refreshing after a day at the beach. The kids loved swimming while mom and dad relaxed on the deck. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to stay again!

This motel was a great value for a recent weekend trip! It is small enough to provide personal service, yet was still able to provide all the essentials. The hotel is right on a quiet beach and has a great pool with a beautiful ocean view. Restaurants and sightseeing are convenient to the location. The kids had a great searching for crabs in the breezing evenings? Thanks for a great stay! We will be back.

We loved this place! A great location - between a beautiful beach & a jumping open air bar. Plus it has a pool you can conceivably swim laps in. The rooms are large, though w/o microwave & fridge. The price was extremely reasonable. Under $90 - on a weekend. We will be back & we will recommend it to friends.

This motel provided an excellent value during a recent family reunion stay. The location is right on the beach and is near all of the attractions of Amelia Island. It doesn't claim to be a 5 star resort but provides great value especially for families.

Even though this is a pet friendly hotel, travelers should be able to expect clean carpeting. The efficiency was acceptable. The pool is large and overlooks the ocean. Very nice location and can walk to beach easily. The air conditioner was very noisy and the room was very humid.
I would not stay again.

The carpeting in our pet friendly rooms is only 1-1/2 years old and has not held up to our standards. We called and spoke with this guest to apologize for their disapointment. We are in progress of a renovation project which should be completed over the next month. This project includes replacement of all carpets, bedding and furnishings in every room of our motel. We have invited this guest back to re-experience Beachside once the renovation is complete and hope they will agree to visit us then.
