This hotel is not a chain or franchise. It's a mom and pop type and We like it that way. Our room was 36 it faced the beach directly. We were also right next to the pool. The room was very clean. The kitchenette was fully stocked. The beds were comfortable. We needed help with the tv and we had... More

This is our first time visiting Amelia Island and staying at the Beachside Motel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. Also free parking and free access to the beach, which is only a few feet away.

Our family loved our stay here, even though the weather was very cold for area at the time. The room is classic motel, good value for price, nice enough for our tastes. Awesome, awesome views, pretty much from every upstairs room, and right on a beach absolutely loaded with shells. Our two boys went crazy collecting them all, and we... More

We have stayed here several times in the past and the rooms this trip were even better than before. We always book one of the two second floor end units because they have the best views. Keep in mind this is a motel so don't expect the luxuries of a large hotel. But it's on the ocean and has a... More

The hotel is located right by the beach and you can see an amazing sunrise over there. The staff was friendly and the room was big and clean.You also get coffee and some snacks in the morning.I really dont understand why tripadvisor force you to write 200 characters when you can summarize in less. I believe they lose many reviews... More

Can't beat the location. Staff is friendly and helpful. Myra was working at the front desk. She made us feel like family. Rooms are more than adequate. Beach is two minute walk from motel. Great place for total relaxation.

It was a great place to stay if you're traveling with kids. Our kids loved going down to the beach looking for shells and being chased by the waves. It was a great time. Pool was fun too. Rooms were pretty good. A little old style character with modern remodel in some areas. We will stay there again. Myra was... More

The room was comfortable, very clean, and right on the beach! Can't beat that. I love that this wasn't a chain hotel. Hilda gave us a great recommendation for breakfast and she was right on. One of the best breakfasts we've had. We'll definitely come back to this motel when it's warmer and can enjoy the pool and beach.

Very nice rooms and value was great and Myra was most helpful. The location to events on The island was also a plus. Being on the beach was most enjoyable. Have stayed on the island several times and we wished we had found this motel sooner. It's nice to know that there is still a family motel around instead of... More
