“Right on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was very clean and a vey short walk to the beach. The room we had was small and when I mean small I mean small. There is storage and there is a fridge and microwave. There's a free breakfast and they will cook you eggs, sausage, grits, and pancakes. They also had yogurt, muffins, Bagels, cereal, and watermelon. They give you beach chairs to carry down, but they are small and do not adjust so you may wish to bring your own. They do have a very small pool. This is a boutique type inn that is clean and well run, but if you can't stand being close you may want to look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask in advance if they have a larger room. If you want a view or patio you need to ask. I also belie...

We'll definitely stay at this hotel again! It's right next to the park and on the ocean a short drive from downtown. Service at the hotel was topnotch. The only reason I didn't give the hotel 5 stars was the size of the parking lot. Some of the spaces were really tight. It seemed like parking was an afterthought.

All i can think about is going back there, the rooms are perfect, the staff is great, awesome location steps away from the sand. Once i park my car there's no reason to move until it's time to go. All i can think it's when can i come back, everytime i leave, i book my next visit, love this place

The hotel was beautiful. The staff was exceptional and very hospitable. The view and beach was phenomenal. This was a great value for the location and we will definitely be back. Anyone going to Amelia Island should stay here.

Great time at Seaside! Delicious breakfast. Wonderful time. Good deal. We stayed in the small room, but it was very clean & nice. Great family atmosphere. Staff is helpful. Pool is nice. Steps to the beach.

Unfortunately, our room was not very clean. Mattress was lumpy and uncomfortable. Didn't find the staff to be very friendly. We won't be back. The hotel is directly across from the beach, which is great. The restaurant across the street has great food.

Dear merrily785,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with us during your visit last year and would like to personally apologize for the unfortunate incidents. The Seaside Amelia Inn is under new ownership and turns the page to an exciting new chapter with a property-wide renovation. The first and most extensive construction and renovation phase, completed end of February 2014, welcomes guests to a total transformation of the interior and exterior of this affordable beachside hotel.

All 46 guest rooms and suites have undergone a complete floor to ceiling update; with a physical expansion of some rooms, new floor coverings, furniture, fixtures and lighting, this $12k per room update represents the most extensive construction and renovation milestone to date. Flat screen televisions have been added to all suites, which now feature televisions in both bedroom and living room. Towels, linens and other guestroom amenities have been upgraded to a level of quality typically found in upscale luxury boutique hotels.

When you plan to revisit Amelia Island again, the entire team and I hope to welcome you back and experience the new Seaside Amelia Inn.

Sincerely,

Olivia Hoblit
General Manager

Wow! Was I impressed with the friendliness and cleanliness of this inn. I found it online as a last minute 4/3 vacation. There is not one negative I can write. The beach, the rooms, the relaxed atmosphere were just delightful. A perfect getaway place.
