“Contemporary Interior, Responsive Staff, Complimentary Bikes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2010

The hotel is clean, comfortable and well situated. Of course it would be nice if it was closer to the beach, but walking 4 blocks is not too much to ask. The staff is friendly and attentive. The breakfast is standard, but has slightly more variety than other hotels in the same class. It helps that the building is fairly new too.

There is direct access from the parking lot to a greenway that connects to other parts of Amelia Island without having to use roads. That the hotel provides complimentary bikes and helmets that can be used on this trail is a very nice touch.

The only constructive criticism I would offer is to encourage housekeeping to rotate the mattresses around once in a while. Ours sagged in places. This is an inexpensive fix, and can make a big difference to people with back problems.

My family (husband, 2 kids (25 and 18 and their friends) reserved two Residence Inn Amelia Island suites for 5 nights. We could not have asked for more from accomodations on Ameila Island. From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and our reservations were in perfect order. The room was spotless and had a full kitchen that could be used for keeping dinner leftovers and making snacks or lunches for the day. The staff directed us to local restaurants and printed directions with a smile so we could find local attractions. The breakfast each morning was full of variety. It was pleasant to sit on the front porch in aricking chair with coffee and see the beautiful trees native to the Island. We took our dog and we had a great walking trail in the back of the hotel lot. As a frequent traveller, it is rare to find a location with these exceptional qualities. We look forward to returning to this hotel.

Extended biz trip thru weekend, played tourist after business from local Island cruise to beach and dinner(s). I was treated kindly in a relaxed yet sophisticated and comfortable hotel/resort environment at the Residence Inn on Amelia Island. To top it off I was able have my companion and to small dogs join me without intruding on anyone else, lots of privacy and space in an efficent apt.

Stayed at this great property over July 4th weekend. Everything was outstanding! This is a fairly new property that is a five minute (max) walk to the beach. Our 1BR suite was furnished with a king size bed, full kitchen, 2 flat screen TVs, full LR area (with fold-out bed). The sink is outside the bathroom, which is a great plus when more than one person is getting ready. There was a manager's reception Friday evening that was nice with appetizers and drinks. The furnished breakfast daily was far beyond the typical breakfastthat you find in other hotels with a great selection of hot and cold foods. The staff was accommodating in every respect, from extra linens to late check-out times. They also furnish towels in the pool area which is a nice touch. This property FAR exceeded my expectations, even with the preceeding outstanding reviews I read prior to my arrival. I got a great Travelzoo rate that blew me away. We will return to this property the next time we come to Amelia Island.

This hotel is clean and nice. It is in a great location. The rooms are decorated nicely. The kitchen is great. The flat screen TVs in the room were huge and had full cable, not just 12 or 13 channels. The hotel also offers free wi-fi, breakfast, and socials. The staff will go grocery shopping for you . We loved it.

Came to the beach for the weekend with my wife and young daughter. This place is nothing short of great. Requested early checkin and it was avalable. The rooms are very nice, kitchen a big plus. Going back in October and will be no other place I stay on my trips. Got a great rate and loved the breakfast.
