A good 2 star motel at a good price. Stayed Tuesday and Wednesday nights in mid-August. Basic amenities, clean, recently remodeled, and quiet. Refrigerator in room was a plus. Only issue was that the pillows were flat (but there were about ten of them). There was no door between bedroom and sink. Quick walk to the beach: from door, around... More

We have always wanted to stay right on the beach at Fernandina and there are not that many options. The Beachside Motel was perfect for our family's weekend getaway. The rooms were nicely renovated and clean and we certainly would love to stay again in the future. We felt safe and secure, too. The rooms were big enough for a... More

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet place during the week, weekenders we a little loud and up all night. Not crowded. Nice clean pool and easy beach access. Rooms were clean and up to date. Only complaint was shower curtain was molded at the bottom.

Another great year! This is a classic "motel" so you shouldn't expect any more than that. The rooms are clean and have been updated for a very comfortable stay. We stayed on the second floor this year and very much pleased with the view. The stairs were not bad at all for this 55 & 61 yr old. Grandson had... More

I'm old enough to remember roadside motels. This is a throwback to one of those. Simple friendly, family-like, staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Awesome beach side location. I did a lot of looking for a place and was the best price I found anywhere in the Jacksonville area on the beach. A person checking-in said it was their 15th year in... More

Very clean and up to date. Rooms were spacious and nice. Pool was clean and staff friendly and helpful. Our ocean view room was if you stood in the window sideways and looked over all the cars parked outside yo could see a little sliver of ocean. Maybe better from the 2nd floor. It was about a 1/2 block from... More

We visited in late April, 2014, and enjoyed the location - right on the beach - about 10 minutes outside the downtown area of Fernandina Beach. There is a nice pool on the property. As you can tell from the photo, the property has outside entrance to the rooms; inside there is one large room with beds and TV and... More

We got a really cheap rate on this hotel and I expected it to be sub-par and was prepared for that. This exceeded all of my expectations. It was clean, updated, had flat screen TVs, new carpet, two queen sized beds, a nice pool and is right on the beach. It certainly isn't a 5 star hotel, but everything was... More

I brought my girlfriend and dog for a two day business/personal trip to Jacksonville and absolutely loved the staff, location and amenities. You can walk to the beach right out your door with some rooms facing the ocean. Fun bar and entertainment directly across the street. Hilda at the front desk was friendly and helpful and the cleaning staff were... More
