This is the best deal on Amelia Island. Nice room, on the beach, great pool, and super nice staff. The room was clean, and it is close to plenty of places to eat. The beach at the hotel is great, a few surfers were out and it's right next to a pier for fishing if you are into

I booked this hotel based on the great reviews. I’m happy others had a good experience, we did not. When we checked in we dropped our bags and headed to the beach and then out to dinner. What I did notice straight away was some crusty dried on substance on the bed skirt. Not

We apologize for your experience it is definitely out of the norm for our motel. We did not receive any photos that you mentioned. Although we close our office at 10pm most days, we do have a contact number on the office door so that we are available 24 hours a day, and we are minutes away in order to assist our guests quickly. Had we known before you booked another hotel we could have moved you and your son to another room. We have spoken to the staff about your experience and hopefully this will not happen to any other guests. We are not a large enough hotel to have a hot breakfast available although we would like to but do not have a dining hall or facilities to offer more than coffee and prepackaged items which is what we advertise. Also we don't offer beach chairs but do have plenty of seating around our large pool area. We hope your next visit to Amelia island gives you better memories.

Loved the location and beach access. The beachfront rooms are the best, with a short walk to the beach over the dunes and a small kitchenette. Nice sized and clean pool. Quiet beach and quick access to the surrounding parks, shopping, and downtown. Only issues we had were that

I have stayed at this motel several times now and the experience has always been great. This not a fancy place but that’s okay because my wife and I are not fancy people. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooms have always been clean. You’re only steps away from the

At a beach that is bereft of oceanfront properties, the Beachside is a welcome relief for someone wanting to be close to the beach. An older, motel-style facility, it has very few oceanfront rooms, most having ocean view over the parking lot. It only has two floors and there is

It wasn't when I was there, however, it has been renovated. I'm sure it is if it's on the website. It was pretty cool out while I was there so I did not utilize it.

"If I went again I would book an efficiency room."
"If handicapped, book ground floor. No private balconies."
"There are 4 rooms facing the ocean. But other rooms have an ocean view."
"We stayed upstairs, facing the parking lot side, but still had a nice partial view of the ocean. Very quiet place."
