“Second time and already booked for next year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

My husband and I have traveled to the Shrimp Festival at Fernandina Beach Florida for the last two years. It is always held the first weekend in May. Both times we have stayed at the Residence Inn Amelia Island. The location is absolutely ideal in relation to the Festival. The hotel actually provides a free shuttle service but it is just as convenient to drive and park. The hotel itself is beautiful. Layed out very nicely. Full kitchen without taking over the room. Pictures at the website are accurate. Continental breakfast each morning is the best you would find anywhere. (Eggs, grits, waffles, fresh fruit, etc.) Pool and hot tub very nice. Relaxing fire pit area away from pool. Bicycles are available for use. Walking distance to the ocean, restaurants and a Dairy Queen. There is no view as hotel is located on a main street. The area is safe and landscaping at hotel is very well kept. Oh we found a pleasant surprise one afternnon, Egans Creek Greenway located directly behind the hotel. You can fish off the bridges or stroll the trails. Very comfortable even when it is warm.

I spent 3 days at the Residence Inn between July 1 and 3, 2011. I'd visited the Island before and stayed at a different hotel. I was a little apprehensive about trying Residence Inn, but I got a special rate and thought "why not?". Boy, was I blown away! From the moment of check-in, we were treated like royalty. Not just by reception, but by the service staff walking the halls. Our room was beautiful, spacious and had a great room. The full buffet Breakfast each day was delicious and we had the option of eating in doors or poolside. There was even a grill and tables on the patio for a family bar-b-que. We missed it, but I heard that they have a reception on most Friday evenings. Even poolside, there were plenty of chairs, tables, a fire pit and everything one would need to relax. Most of all, we were impressed with the service from the staff. I had no complaints!

We had another awesome training experience at the Amelia Island Residence Inn. The staff and hotel are great! They throw in so many extras to make your experience a good one. I highly recommend the hotel for training and meetings. When you get done, you can head for the beach or pool or walk downtown to the shops and marina. I definitely look forward to next year.

We stayed at the residence for 4 days and 3 nights in a deluxe king room. We were looking for a place to get away from daily in and outs and this was it. Perfect because each room comes with a small kitchenette allowing you to bring home leftovers and just relax. Complimentary breakfast is served each morning as well. Room was very spacious and extremely clean. Property appeared to be newer upon checkin. Will definitely go back.

Hats off to the management of this Residence Inn. It runs like a charm and charms its customers: clean and neat inside and out; courteous, happy and helpful employees; comfortable, quiet and nicely appointed accommodations and a complete breakfast every morning. Somehow housekeeping managed to tidy up our room the moment we were out and have it ready whenever we showed up again. Be aware that although many report that this hotel is within walking distance of the beach, it is equivalent to a 3 block walk to get down to the sand which can be difficult with children and beach paraphernalia. Driving however is easy and parking usually available. The hotel also provides shuttle service. We loved Amelia Island - the beaches, fort, river cruise and town but must admit that having great accommodations for the week made it an overall positive and memorable family vacation.

We felt at home from the moment we arrived here. We were warmly welcomed by EVERY employee we encountered for entire stay, and I can't way tha about any other place I've ever stayed. They were wonderful about coming in and cleaning even while our pet was still in the room and helping us out when the kids got sick and we needed extra linen changes.

The hotel facilities are very nice, well maintained and we really felt at home here. The 2 bedroom suite was perfect for our family of 4. My sister's family and my mom each had rooms here during the same time and they made the effort to locate all of our rooms close together. EVERYONE had an awesome time!! The breakfasts were really good with wonderful staff every morning.

We all can't wait to come back!! I can see many big family vacations here in the future.

Room Tip: We had a corner room, facing back of the hotel with the nature trail. Nice and Quiet :)
