The Elizabeth Point Inn was an absolute gem in Fernandina Beach. It directly oceanfront with wonderfully appointed rooms. The staff was the best and sought to answer all questions and serve. Breakfast was delicious every morning and when I, accidentally, left a couple of items behind in my room, I was immediately contacted, and they shipped them to my house within 3 days. My wife and I will definitely return!
What a lovely hotel! The staff were first-rate friendly and accommodating, and the public areas were clean and well-kept. We spent 5 nights in one of the oceanfront suites detached from the main lodge. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable with breathtaking views. Complimentary breakfast and cocktail hours were a great way to start and end the day in between exploring the island's many adventures and enjoying a fantastic dinner at local restaurants. Highly recommend!
Amazing service especially in this time where there is very little service in most places! All the staff were so great! It’s been a long time since I’ve stayed in a place that was this perfect for me and my husband. We will be back!
Yes, the rooms are a bit small and the bathrooms dated, but we knew that from reading the reviews. With the right attitude, this place will impress. It is actually more like a B&B than a hotel. The staff spoiled us, and the views were amazing. To be directly on the beach with chair service, cocktails, and a delicious breakfast included made this unique hotel a good value as well. We will definitely stay again, Thank you Tina for the extra care!
The rooms are small and bathrooms are very outdated and pretty gross; especially at this price point. Sink faucets were on backwards. One tub faucet was broken. The toilet barely flushed. No where to put your things. There is a small wardrobe. The safe kept locking before I could put in a code so it wasn't usable. The chairs face the bed, so you can only watch TV in/on the bed. They did nothing special for our anniversary. First afternoon snack was a mushy meatball thing with pineapple slices. They serve wine, beer and soda. They do provide plenty of bottled water a daily treat and beach towels. The daily breakfast was ok, nothing special. Weird and wet looking scrambled eggs. I did order scrambled egg whites and turkey sausage. I believe the turkey sausage was microwaved as it was tough. We rented the bikes with lunch and wine for an extra $125. The lunch was very haphazard. The package stated the lunch would be packed for travel. I was wondering how gumbo would work and it didn't. We ate the gumbo in the Cafe area. The sandwiches were boxed and put in a plastic bag you get from the grocery store. I had in mind a picnic basket :(. There was no basket on the bikes so you could carry the lunch, stop somewhere and enjoy it with your wine. Just rent bikes from a local company and go back out and drive to get lunch! We really did enjoy the bike ride through Fort Clinch. It was like riding through a rainforest on this day. For the price we paid, I was very disappointed, but it was in a great location. If we were to go back, I think we would do an airbnb.…
I have mixed feelings and experiences with this lovely place. I agree with many of the other reviews in that it is quaint, friendly and peaceful. I also agree that it has a few run down edges, minimal hourderves, one of the trollies was unusable and no one at the front desk on an of the days we were there was warm or welcoming. A few other things really bothered me, for the prices paid and the marketing of this unique place, there is no boardwalk to the beach. Every other place up and down the beach for as far as one can see has a boardwalk but for here you must climb over a small dune to access the chairs and umbrellas - of which there are not enough for all lodgers. The other weird thing is that the bath mirror was so high, I could only see my forehead lol. No exhaust in the bathroom was very uncomfortable also. But there are many wonderful things too, number one being the rest of the staff, Shelby should be the hostess at the front desk, what a gem of an employee, and the kitchen girls were so friendly, so were the cleaning staff for that matter, and we really enjoyed the breakfasts, the eggs were special somehow and absolutely perfect bacon. The porch is lovely, totally enjoyed lots of good conversation with other guests and appreciated the breezes and view. So while the details were on the disappointing side, the experience of this lodge was most excellent over a hotel any day.…
This is a small, lovely old hotel in a prime location. The staff could not be more helpful, the porch is wonderful, the breakfasts were delicious. Unfortunately, our room had a strong musty, moldy odor that hit you as you opened the door to the room! For almost $500 a night, it was quite an unwelcome surprise. Hopefully, a thorough cleaning job will help.
A lovely seaside location but hotel is well past its prime. Much deferred maintenance. Luggage trolley was barely fictional. Late afternoon wine and hours d’oeurve reception was out of nibbles within an hour. Front desk clerk seemed overwhelmed by herself as 4 parties were checking in 3:00pm. Understaffed. The safe in our room was broken. Upon checkout we asked for 20$ to be broken down in 5$ bills to leave maids gratuity but front desk said they had no cash to do so. Weird.
Take a step back in time to another era in this charming Lodge that welcomes you like a warm hug from family. Our team meeting was originally scheduled in a convention center hotel in another Florida location. A conflict with dates brought us to the Elizabeth Pointe Lodge. Fate smiled on us with this change in plans. The Lodge is beautiful, clean and spacious. The beach side veranda is the perfect place for spending time watching the waves, having a cocktail, watching the waves and star gazing. Breakfast included a variety of items that met every appetite. The daily special in addition to standard breakfast fare was unique and delicious. If you are there for pancake day you are lucky indeed. The banana pancakes are a sweet southern treat not to be missed. As special as the Lodge and location are the best part of our trip was the care and attention provided by the staff.…
The staff is very welcoming. Breakfast is very substantial and variety every day. Then they offer a very nice Afternoon hour for guests. The rooms are kept very clean and staff was very accommodating to the max. Would hight recommend this place
