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

Loved this place! Clean, large rooms, Updated decoration, huge picture window allowing everyone to see the ocean, The motel feels like they went the extra mile to make the room feel like home. Special thanks to Hilda who helped so much.

This is where we love to stay!! We visit Amelia Island about 3-4 times a year, it's always a family trip, and our dog is a part of our family! They recently renovated the rooms, I love that the carpet was removed. The rooms are always very clean and cozy. The staff is always very kind and helpful. The pool... More

We made a fairly last minute reservation for Valentines Day 2015. The room rate offered was very affordable. Our room was clean and comfortable. The beach is right by the motel and that part of the beach is quiet and beautiful.

We enjoyed a night at Amelia Island after a busy week in Disney. This hotel at $109 a night total is an amazing value. The beds are comfortable, the pillows are flat (but that's how I like them), the shower curtain was a little dingy on the bottom but everything else was in top notch condition. Our hotel was ocean...

This small motel - the only one left on Amelia Island, as I understand - was the perfect stopover on our drive from SC down to Naples, FL. Our room wasn't oceanfront, but did have a nice view, and the beach was a few steps away on the other side of the pool. (A bit cold for the pool on... More

It's all about location. Right on the beach, and if you get one of their ground floor rooms facing the beach (37 is the best), it's worth it. Otherwise it's a standard unexciting motel, somewhat renovated, very clean, somewhat functional kitchen but not a place to do much cooking - also no microwave. Definitely nothing to write home about but... More

The motel was small, but neat. We enjoyed our stay. It was a little outdated in the bathroom, but clean. The room was cozy. The carpet was clean and up to date. I have problems staying at a motel that has old and dirty carpet.

We searched around looking for a ocean front hotel but without all the fanfare and EXPENSE. Beachside looked good on paper and was great in person. Lovely lady at reception, very nice and clean room with update big screen, fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Desk for our laptop, and two nice beds. It's not the Ritz down the street but... More
