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.

Stayed at this beachside motel for two nights this weekend. It was an older facility (no frills), but what a gem! Room was clean and quiet. The staff (run by older women) was so friendly and very accommodating. It has a great pool and a path that leads to the beach. Sunrise walks in the morning were fabulous! It was... More

This was the first time my wife and I had stayed at the Beachside Motel and it won't be the last. Great location. Very convenient room layout and appointments. The staff was very friendly and helpful though out our stay. Hilda and all the folks at the front desk went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable.

If you are looking for a clean motel by the beach look no further! This place is not fancy but it is SO conveniently located by the beach. It is also close to Happy Trails if you wanted to horseback ride on the beach. Downtown is only a 10 min drive. A BIG plus is that the sweet gals that... More

This is an old school motel updated to be a *modern* old school motel. Metal keys and smallish rooms, but redone and clean. Friendly staff, great location--shirt drive to most Amelia Island attractions-- and great views. Great nostalgic feeling.

I began visiting Fernandina Beach in 1982 and have enjoyed staying at the Beachside Motel on each visit. The ocean front location, accommodations, and staff are great. On our most recent stay in June we were welcomed by Myra who is always so pleasant and helpful. This was the beginning of another restful and enjoyable visit.

It's small, not a resort, and seems to be run by older women who were very pleasant. We had a downstairs room and never heard anything from our neighbors next door or upstairs. Rooms have queen size beds and our room with two beds seemed a little cramped. Rooms come with refrigerators.Floors are tiled with area rugs by beds and... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your visit. We welcome your next visit with us at Beachside Motel. Our pool is naturally heated by the beautiful Florida sun at no cost to us during the summer, so if you come in the winter seasons the pool temperature may be a bit chilly. Thank you again for your comments. More

Totally pleased and surprised with our room. Refridgerator, microwave, all they described on website, but didn't know they had a kitchen with furnished supplies. Dishes, flatware, bowls, paper towels, dish rags and towels and even the dish liquid was provided. Staff was knowledgeable with location of our interest and that our little one "Gabby" was satisfied. Will stay there again
