Congenial staff, pet friendly and dogs allowed on beach. The reason to go here is natural beach. Restaurant across the street. Quiet island atmosphere. Historical downtown looked very interesting, wish we had time to explore.

I love this motel, Location is perfect. My only issue was, we paid $40 a night more than other rooms just so we could have the oceanfront suite, We were on the ground floor. There are 2 plastic chairs outside your room, In front of our room was a common sitting area with 4 wooden chairs. Other guest that did... More

We just enjoyed our second 2-night stay at Beachside. We love the beach views, easy beach accessibility, pool, and clean and comfortable room accommodations. The staff are very helpful. It is quiet and beds are comfortable. We made reservations to return again in the near future. It is well worth the price, as it is not overpriced.

Fairly nice motel with renovated rooms. However I think some pipes could be replaced due to rust. We were so happy to be able to walk to the beach without having to cross the street or search for parking. The beds were comfy and it was nice having a refrigerator in the room. The pool was also nice. Not cold... More

We had a 2nd floor room which gave us a lovely view of the ocean. All rooms face ocean (side view) except for the front suite rooms (ocean front). The beds were comfortable, decor was updated and with a beach/island flair. Very clean. Lovely pool, many lounge chairs and even provided "noodles" and float boards. Outside showers to use when...

We stopped by Beachside motel in June while on a week trip to Fermandina. Myra, who was working in the office, gave us some information on the motel as we thought we might be coming back for a few nights in July. It is a small, older motel, but it has been nicely updated and has a pool. We called,... More

Bottom line is you cannot get closer to the ocean unless you own or rent an expensive property. Impeccably clean and comfortable, I could see the ocean from my bed! Love the pool, it was 40 step from my room and the ocean is another 20-30 yards. This place is tiny and does not have the amenities of the Amelia... More

The room was spotless when we arrived at 4 pm for our check in that was made quick and easy! We appreciated the kitchen utensils, the toaster, and microwave to make a quick breakfast and lunch so we could enjoy the whole day at the beach and in the pool.

We lucked into this unpretentious motel as we'd rather avoid chain hotels. The room was very comfortable and even had a kitchenette (no microwave though). We paid the extra bit to have the seaside room and glad we did. Great service. Book directly and save a little. We'd definitely return.
