When I booked my reservations, I relied solely on images, reviews, and price point. But when I arrived, it was much more than any of the images, reviews, and price point offered. Yes, it's just a motel; however, Kathy and Jean (at the front desk) were extremely helpful in making our stay enjoyable. Our room #32, was immaculately clean. The... More

This motel was good for the price. Too was clean and updated. Pool was right on the beach. Front desk staff not terrific. When arriving at 11 after driving from Mass I was told 4 pm was checkin no exceptions. Then she said room will be ready at 12. So we walked the beach and came back at 12. She... More

Upon visiting this location I researched a lot of different hotels, motels, and resorts on the island. I read a few reviews about the rooms needing renovated but as I got closer to booking a hotel, I saw wonderful reviews on how clean it was, good location, and convineint. I will say that upon booking I was skeptiacal due to... More

We - myself and my 12 year old daughter, and two best friends (29 and 40 years of age) -drove down from NYC and had a wonderful time -all because of where we stayed.The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the staff was amazing. Everyone... More

This motel is steps from the beach. The room was spotless and décor was "beach themed". Check-in was smooth with no problems. I loved the explanation of breakfast: "We have coffee and something sweet to eat with fruit." Nothing is fancy and we had real room keys not cards. Fridge in room. We parked right in front of our room.... More

We traveled to Amelia on a whim from MI for spring break 2015 with myself and 2 17 yr olds. This was the only place left & with one room left so I booked it. I thought the price was high (it really wasn't), but that is coming from someone who doesn't travel often and when I do I don't... More

Stayed in the Ocean Front room Top Floor, in January 2015. Arrived in Jacksonville late and did not get to the Motel until around midnight (the trip from the Airport in our rental was only about ½ hour). They put the key on the door in a code lock (like a realtor would use) and turned the lights on so... More

Our room was spotless, newly decorated. Our coffee pot didn't work at first. This was quickly resolved. The pool was clean, well maintained. Had numerous tables with umbrellas, chairs and lounge chairs. The beach was a short walk down a path behind the pool. Myra at the front desk was warm and courteous. The Surf restaurant is directly across the... More

I love this little motel. I have been going to Amelia for decades but have never stayed at the motel. The lady at the front desk was very nice (Myra) and helpful. The floors were nice because there was no carpet. The pool is older but nice and I have beautiful pictures of the sunrise.

My review will read like others I have seen about this motel. Very clean, good location, bad customer service. I called to make a reservation, and a woman in the office (her name was Jan) made it clear that she was not happy about booking us. Everything in her tone said "hang up, because we do not want you to... More
