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.

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

Beachside is a little older motel right on the ocean. Its impeccably clean, seems to be newly updated, and the staff is so very nice and accommodating. This is our second visit to this hotel and on both occasions it was an enjoyable stay. We were pleasantly surprised to see that it is also pet friendly so we will definitely... More

The place is remarkably clean--especially for being on the beach; the people are about as friendly as can be--everyone went out of their way to greet us; the location is ideal--right on the beach and only a few miles South of Fernandina; and relatively well appointed--comfortable double-sheeted beds w/ lots of big, fat, fluffy pillows (4/bed) and thick 100% cotton...

Has been newly remodeled. Clean and found that it is the only motel on the beach. Has a nice pool and service is great. Close to a lot of activities and close to town. Our room had an ocean view with beach access.

We prefer "mom and pop" establishments, this one did not disappoint! We had an efficiency on the second floor, which gave a nice view of the ocean. The room was spotless, the shower was great, and the staff very helpful and friendly! The location was great. A short drive to downtown, state parks at the north and south ends of... More
