I brought my girlfriend and dog for a two day business/personal trip to Jacksonville and absolutely loved the staff, location and amenities. You can walk to the beach right out your door with some rooms facing the ocean. Fun bar and entertainment directly across the street. Hilda at the front desk was friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff were very courteous. The rooms were upgraded and clean and overall it was fairly priced and exceeded expectations. We plan to go back in June for a long weekend.

Right on the ocean, very clean, great price, good staff, across the road from good restaurant. We just got back and will go again next year. My only concern with this positive of a write up that many will start going and drive up the price.

Room Tip: If you want a great place on the beach in Fernandina, you will not be able to beat this location and...

This place is very cute! It appears to have been recently remodeled and they did a nice job. The rooms were nice, plenty of room for the three of us. Our room came with a mini fridge and a microwave. Both worked well. Older AC unit, that worked well enough, though it stayed very humid in the room. Impossible to dry out anything that got wet down at the beach.

The place is right on the beach in a nice location. The beach here is really nice, lots of shells, beautiful sand. It's just a short walk through the dunes, far easier than many beach front places we have stayed on nearby islands.

The place is over priced in our opinion. We got our beds made daily and fresh towels, but the room was not thoroughly cleaned each day.

We chose this hotel for it's location , right on the beach. Based on other reviews, we requested a room on the second floor to get a better view. The view was lovely but does not offer that right on the beach feel as the dunes obstruct the view of the beach.
Unfortunately, we did not find the front desk staff to be very pleasant at all. One day the pool was closed because it had rained in the morning. It got lovely and warm in the afternoon but the lady at the desk would not open the pool because she said she didn't know how.
The rooms were comfortable and clean.
We found it pricey for what it is.

This was a great place to stay! Clean rooms with a very friendly staff right on the beach. It was a business trip this time but we want to come back to vacation here. Nice pool on the beach side of the hotel.

We absolutely loved the Beachside Motel at Amelia Island! We travel with our small dog and they were very accomodating. The rooms are very nice and the motel is on the beach. We sat out one evening in adirondack chairs and enjoyed the weather and the view. We definately recommend this motel and will stay here again if in the area.

Offers a nice room, friendly staff and beautiful beach ! The remodel of the rooms is very nice. Pool is lovely...simple motel on the beach offers a comfortable stay while enjoying the island.
The Amelia Island area is quite a gem just north of Jacksonville FL.
