The motel was small, but neat. We enjoyed our stay. It was a little outdated in the bathroom, but clean. The room was cozy. The carpet was clean and up to date. I have problems staying at a motel that has old and dirty carpet.

We searched around looking for a ocean front hotel but without all the fanfare and EXPENSE. Beachside looked good on paper and was great in person. Lovely lady at reception, very nice and clean room with update big screen, fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Desk for our laptop, and two nice beds. It's not the Ritz down the street but... More

Great accommodations! Stayed Friday & Saturday night in beginning of October...2nd floor. Pleasantly surprised at the updated decor and the cleanliness of the entire facility! You never know what to expect in older properties. Would not hesitate to stay again! Very helpful and pleasant staff! Thanks for a great weekend!

I was pleasantly surprised and very pleased. The motel is small and older but our room was clean, fresh and recently updated. The refrigerator in the room allowed us to visit a nearby Publix and stock up with snacks, drinks and breakfast items. All of the motel staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was on the second floor... More

A good 2 star motel at a good price. Stayed Tuesday and Wednesday nights in mid-August. Basic amenities, clean, recently remodeled, and quiet. Refrigerator in room was a plus. Only issue was that the pillows were flat (but there were about ten of them). There was no door between bedroom and sink. Quick walk to the beach: from door, around... More

We have always wanted to stay right on the beach at Fernandina and there are not that many options. The Beachside Motel was perfect for our family's weekend getaway. The rooms were nicely renovated and clean and we certainly would love to stay again in the future. We felt safe and secure, too. The rooms were big enough for a... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet place during the week, weekenders we a little loud and up all night. Not crowded. Nice clean pool and easy beach access. Rooms were clean and up to date. Only complaint was shower curtain was molded at the bottom.

Another great year! This is a classic "motel" so you shouldn't expect any more than that. The rooms are clean and have been updated for a very comfortable stay. We stayed on the second floor this year and very much pleased with the view. The stairs were not bad at all for this 55 & 61 yr old. Grandson had... More

I'm old enough to remember roadside motels. This is a throwback to one of those. Simple friendly, family-like, staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Awesome beach side location. I did a lot of looking for a place and was the best price I found anywhere in the Jacksonville area on the beach. A person checking-in said it was their 15th year in... More
