The room was great. Beach was beautiful. Employees were friendly Pool was nice. Water was warm comfortable to swim in. Ice was available whenever we needed it. Check in and check out was fast. Reasonable rates for direct access to the beach. Light breakfast of sweets and fruit was available along with coffee. Hilda made our stay nicer.

The Beachside Motel is a rare gems. It is an old-school style motel located right on a quiet beach. Modern updated rooms that are reasonably priced and a really, really great staff on hand to help. Checking in with Myra was a breeze, and Hilda was extremely helpful and sweet and helped make sure my girlfriend got the flowers that... More

My family and I stayed at Beachside Motel for a short visit to Florida. Our room was clean and brightly decorated with a beach motif. The motel was affordable and met our desires such as being on the beach, having a pool near the beach, and having a restaurant within walking distance. The staff were very kind and helpful with...

If you're expecting a fancy modern resort, you've got the wrong idea about the Beachside Motel. This is the kind of place that might remind you of family trips you took as a kid in the 60's or 70's. That's not to say the place is not decorated nicely. It is very nice - and simple. The place was very... More

What a great hotel - just like the ones I stayed in as a child -small & charming. My family got together for a weekend here. The rooms were clean and stylish, from the classic ocean view to the deluxe ocean view efficiency to the ocean front kitchen suite which had a full kitchen (minus a microwave) with a kitchen...

I stayed here while on vacation with my daughter, I found my stay very enjoyable, the motel was very clean , decorated very cute, I loved the little seahorses on the pillows, and excellent staff. Especially Myra. I definitely recommend this motel.

The room was very clean. Maid service was great. Beds and air conditioner were perfect. Not much outside noise at nite. The office staff, especially Myra, was extremely friendly and helpful. Great place.

This was our fifth time staying at the Beachside Motel. It's affordable, the staff is wonderful (Hilda, I'm looking at you!), but the best attribute is the location. You couldn't stay any closer to the actual beach and ocean. It's a reasonable distance to downtown Amelia Island, the grocery store, and retail shops. (May I add that there's a bar... More

We really enjoyed this place! It has a mid-century modern feel to it. Reservations were easy and responses to emailed questions were prompt. We arrived early, before our room was ready but the staff called us within an hour to let us know we could check-in. Our room appeared to have been recently renovated with nice, coordinated colors and modern... More

This is the motel I prefer to stay at when I go to Fernandina. It is quiet and an easy walk to the beach. I have been staying here for the last 5 years. The front desk staff is always helpful and nice. Looking forward to the next visit when I can stay longer. Hilda was especially helpful to us... More
