This place was perfect. When we drive down to WDW we find a new place to stop in Florida each trip to see if we want to return. This time we chose Amelia Island and the Beachside Motel. We loved the no frills motel and it's location to the beach. The staff was friendly and most importantly everything was clean.... More

We stayed at the beachside motel for one night while we were driving down to Orlando. It was a great location to stop at if you live in North Carolina. It means only about 3-3.5 more hours to drive to get you to Orlando. The motel was nicely renovated. I thought the beds were comfortable and the pillows especially. My... More

This is the second time we have met at the Beachside Motel. Highly recommend it as a great vacation spot. Prices are very reasonable and the staff, to include Myra, very helpful. Will definitely stay here again. Proximity to restaurants and shopping was wonderful.

Although the weekend was trying hard to play winter, the Beachside stay was cozy. It is so clean, albeit an Old Florida style hotel, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Every room has an ocean view, and the beach is just over the dune.

Location: loved that the beach was within steps and downtown was only 10 minutes away. Room: very clean and convenient. Staff: check-in and check-out were easy. Very friendly lady. Parking: parked right in front of the room. Value: provably the best in Amelia Island.

This motel was recently rennovated, was close to many stores on Sadler St and was very clean. I found no faults with the room I was in.this location was directly on the beach,(Just turn right and about 100 ft you are on the beach). The price was better than average for the location. NOT A DUMP!!!!!!!!!!!

We loved walking out the door of #27 and taking the short stroll down the wooden walkway and sand path to the water. No getting in the car or crossing streets required. I saw 4 tortoises in the dunes adjacent to the walkway. Between the building and the walkway are Adirondack chairs with ocean views and sounds of the surf.... More
