My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights last summer. It was my first time staying at a Residence Inn and this property gave a very favorable impression. For starters, the property is pristine throughout--both the common areas and the individual rooms. We stayed in a King efficiency suite. It was spacious, had a well stocked kitchen area, and comfortable bedding.
The property is about as convenient to the beach as you can get without being Beachfront. You literally turn left out of the parking lot and walk straight for 5 minutes to get to the ocean. I got up early each morning for walks along the beach and was always there in 5 minutes or less.
We had initially booked 3 nights, and when I went to inquire about the possibility of extending our stay, I was made aware that they were having a special: Stay 3 nights and get the 4th night free. With this unexpected cost savings we were able to extend from 3 nights to 5.
The business district of Amelia Island with stores, theater, chain restaurants, etc are only a 5-10 minute drive from the hotel.
The hotel has a front porch with big rocking chairs on it. My husband and I enjoyed sitting in the rockers in the evening and enjoying the breeze coming in from the ocean.
The daily breakfast buffet, was changed each day we were there. The area was very clean, and there was a good variety of food selections. They had 1-2 staff members in the area who would assist in any way needed (i.e. making your waffle for you).
Overall, I loved everything about this hotel. The staff, the service, the property, convenience to the ocean, peaceful atmosphere. It's not a luxury hotel, but is has the feel of one.
