From the outside, this place looks good. But right now, I'm sitting in my room hearing every word of a conversation the people in the next room are having, and not because they're yelling, because the walls are paper thin. Last night I couldn't sleep because of the noise from the karaoke at the restaurant across the street. The room...

This is not a fancy hotel but it is clean and has everything you need for a perfect beachfront stay plus some very nice extras like a microwave, refrigerator dishes and a really nice counter/kitchen area. The wifi is a little limited (one device) but it's good and you have a great selection of television channels. The beds are comfortable...

Centrally located making it easy to visit the north and south portions of the island easily. Located right on the Atlantic shore. Reasonably priced. Great staff. A special shout out to Myra, who made us feel right at home.

An inexpensive room on the beach? Heck yeah! This is a motel that seems to be family owned. The staff at the front desk were nice and accommodating. My uncle needed a room on the ground level, they made some changes and made it happen. We had a nice room with a partial view of the ocean and pool. The...

Our room was clean,comfortable, lots of space and well laid out. The staff were friendly, informative and welcoming, especially Hilda who was very helpful and engaging. Location was central for bike rentals and bike path and of course, wonderful sunrises right on our beach. In room coffee quality could be improved. Microwave available in office.

Beachside is my favorite motel. Very quiet and peaceful. Beach is just steps away. Myra was extra helpful during our stay. Can't wait to visit again. This is one of several trips I have made to Beachside and it continues to be my favorite motel in Fernandina Beach. Pier is also close by. We also like it because it is...

This hotel was a wonderful find for our family. We had a short walk to the beach, clean rooms, and a helpful staff. They were willing and able to help us find good restaurants, sights, and other attractions around town.

I was there for the Amelia Island Cookie Tour Dec. 10 and decided to stay overnight. Found this lovely motel on the beach. Myra was working the front desk and was very kind and helpful.

We really enjoy Fernandina Beach and and in the past have stayed in a motel owned by a large chain. The Beachside is much smaller with about 18 rooms and is privately owned. We travel with our 15 pound Jack Russell who loves the beach so we were looking forward to being a few hundred feet from the ocean. Our...
