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

You can have all the fancy schmancy big high rise hotels. This reminds me of yester-year. There is nothing fancy about this place, but it is exceptionally clean and comfortable. Everything you need. And I cannot say enough about the staff. They go over and beyond call of duty here to make your stay pleasurable. I've been here twice in... More

My family and I enjoyed a week's stay at this locally-owned beachside gem! The front desk staff is extremely nice. We enjoyed the individually wrapped apples every day. The hotel cleaning staff is TOP NOTCH! All the guests we spoke to commented on the cleanliness of the rooms and property. The recently remodeled rooms are very comfortable and stylish. We... More

Beachside is an awesome little motel. It had everything we were looking for during our stay on Amelia Island. The motel staff was so friendly and helpful. We visited with Hilda during our morning visits to the lobby to get coffee. We would definitely recommend this motel to friends and we plan on staying here again in the near future.... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week while he attended a conference. This motel is simple with no frills, but it had everything we needed for a relaxing beach stay. We benefitted from a discount for staying a full week. Front office and cleaning staff were all friendly and helpful, especially Hilda. The room was clean, the pool... More

The room was clean and the staff were friendly. But if you are like us and want to kick back on a balcony with a good view of the ocean and beach, catch the ocean breeze, listen to the gulls, and smell that beachy smell, then this is not your kind of place. We are in our fifties vacationing without... More

My daughter and I arrived after 8:00pm and we were delighted to find the last room available. Hilda at the front desk could not have been more pleasant or helpful. She even extended a discount for the room. The place is clean, the beds are comfortable and the pool right on the beach is warm and clean. The beach here... More
