Let me start by saying that if I were to return to Amelia Island I would probably stay here again. The location is as close as you are going to get to the beach, and there is a great restaurant/beach bar right across the street and a great bar right down the street.
With that said, it is important to note that my first impression when entering the hotel was that it was a bit worn, but had been painted to look better. The rooms were clean and large enough, as was the bathroom. The balcony, while offering an "ocean view" also offered the parking lot of a dumpy apartment building and the trash recepticles of the restaurant across the street. I've had a larger balcony on a cruise shop, but it was what it was.
If bright and new is what you are looking for, stay at the Marriott property down the street. If you are looking for clean, don't have to have a new hotel, and want a fantastic location to a restaurant, a bar, and the beach, this is the place to stay. In spite of its shortcomings, I'll give it 4 stars for it's location and the fact that it was clean and the breakfast was great.
