I loved that this Motel was small and quiet. It's in a great location, has a nice pool and is right on the beach. The front desk ladies were all nice and informative. The room was much better than I expected, it was decorated very nicely. Sure, the tub could be replaced but I have seen much worse! We were... More

Thank you so much for appreciating all we do at the motel and thanks for your feedback. We have replaced the refrigerators in almost all of the rooms and are replacing the last few in the next couple of weeks, so hopefully next time you stay you will have a bright shinny new one that works! Hope to see you... More

Upon entering our room, we were simply baffled by how clean it was. This was by far the neatest and cleanest place that we’ve ever seen. It advertises itself as a ‘motel’, but it is clearly in a slightly higher segment. Our room had apparently been recently refurbished so everyhting had that new look to it, including a nice flat...

Thank you for all the wonderful comments about our motel. We are so happy you enjoyed how clean we keep our rooms and our remodel. We are so sorry about your neighbor being noisy. When you return to stay again, if you need a quieter room, just let us know and we will be glad to move you away from... More

Came to Amelia Island in January, was one of the first hotels we stumbled across. Tried to rent a room, the front desk lady, I believe her name was Jan, was on the phone and acted like she was annoyed we walked in, was a little trouble to actually rent the room, she acted as if she was doing us...

Do not judge this motel by the outside. The rooms were modern, clean and roomy, with amenities that you would expect in a much pricier hotel. I opened the door and was wonderfully surprised. I was a 'walk in' and fortunate enough to get the last room. When I decided to stay another night, everyone went out of their way... More

I stayed here instead of the Real Pricey Ritz Carlton Resort about a mile down the road, where I was attending a 2-3 day business conference. There is no way in the world I can justify that high cost just to spend a few nights asleep. So, I did a Trip Advisor search and voila: The Beach side Motel popped... More

We booked this room a day before we decided to go, not really knowing what it would look like when we got there. We were surprised and pleased at how charming the room was. It looked like it had been recently renovated, too. We are already planning another trip back here.

Great prices and a great ocean-front view. Family owned and hospitable. Would go back anytime and stay longer. It may be smaller than most hotels/motels we saw - but that gave it extra charm for me. The rooms had been recently renovated and were very clean and updated in look.

We stayed here on our way home from south Florida. We got to the motel at 9:30 am and were told by Helga that the room would not be ready until late afternoon. We planned on going out for the day and received a call two hours later that the room was ready. The room was clean, comfortable and big.... More

My family and I just visited Amelia Island, and we chose Beachside Motel because of the price and the reviews that it received. We were not disappointed!! The motel is right on the beach and the room was large, clean, and very comfortable. We stayed in one of the ocean front kitchen suites, which I would recommend. Not only did... More
