We spent 3 nights ending the last night on New Year's Eve. We loved how quiet it was and we were able to sleep through the midnight hour with no disturbance. The hotel offered a manager's reception to celebrate the event with a nice variety of snacks foods including 4 kinds of cheese, several kinds of dips, black eyed peas, crackers, nuts, hummus, vienna sausages, veggies and beer, wine and champagne. There was lemonade for those not wanting alcohol. The reception was from 6- 7:30 and they had hats and horns for those interested. There were activities nearby and within walking distance for those that wanted to party.

Several restaurants within walking distance and a shuttle available certain hours for anywhere on the island. I would recommend this hotel. They do welcome animals and we saw quite a few. If that is important to you one way or the other - could be be value to know that.

There is a distinct smell to the water but we have experienced this at other hotels in other cities in Florida. We are thinking it is the water treatment being near the ocean and other bodies of water.

Thank you so much for taking a moment to review our hotel!

I'm glad to see that you were able to enjoy a relaxing New Year's Eve on the island. Amelia Island provides a unique New Year's experience in that visitors can enjoy a quiet and relaxing entry into the new year, or they can participate in any of the several celebrations at various restaurants on the island.

Thank you again for providing feedback, and we hope to have you again soon,
Casey

We were a group of 6 people traveling from Orlando, FL to see Amelia Island. First we noticed as soon we entered the hotel, the magnificent clean outside, and the beautiful looby, very modern, very clean with comfortable seats. The service... I need to share that the service was a plus, excelent. Absolutly clean and beautiful rooms, hot water, comfy beds, beautiful colors. The room had all the ammenities with enough space for us. It is a 4 stars hotel, However the rooms look like a 5 stars. Definetly I would recommend this hotel to anyone. We had a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: We stayed at the third floor. Absolutlely no noise...

About a month ahead we and another couple booked our rooms for New Years for two nights. We were able to get a very good rate with our AAA card--$243 for two nights including tax for a king studio. The room was very large with a nice kitchenette, sofa, table and chairs, comfortable chair and desk chair. It was easy for the two couples to gather in one of the rooms to visit.
We cannot say enough good things about the hotel's employees. Everyone was hardworking, polite, cheerful, and extremely helpful. Even though the hotel was full, everything went smoothly from check-in, to the managers reception on New Year's Eve, to breakfast every morning.

We stayed on the second floor where people and their pets were staying. We did not once hear anything, or smell any pet odors. And every pet we saw ( which was quite a few ) were very well behaved.

We will definitely be back!

This is a excellent motel. The rooms are sit up very nice for more than 2 people. The room came with free popcorn and coffee. The staff was excellent. We were not staying in the area but driving around the area was interesting with the small village nearby being very interesting.

We stayed here twice in one week, on either end of a vacation in south florida. The 2 stays were very different in terms of staff attentiveness and cleanliness of the room. The second stay was what I've come to expect of a Marriott property - clean, great value for the money, restful bed, and spacious room. Helpful staff. We would definitely stay here again.

Just a short walk to beach access on the Atlantic, and a 5 minute drive into the quaint village for meals. We had 3 meals in town -- all at excellent restaurants -- and loved walking through the downtown area and along the marina in town as well as on the beach.

Nice tree-covered property, next to a greenway. Although we were a bit taken aback by the don't feed the gators sign on the greenway, lol.

Typical RI breakfast. Although the kitchen facilities allow for an alternative to the mass-prepared fare in the restaurant.

Looking forward to a return trip to Fernandina Beach, where it is the destination, and not just an overnight stop.

It sounds like you really enjoyed your time on the island and got some great sightseeing in. I always like reading about that. In fact, Amelia Island's 6th Annual Restaurant Week is kicking off this Friday for 10 days, and 21 different restaurants are taking part in the event. (Check out www.ameliaislandrestaurantweek.com for more details). Also, the hotel offers a "Historic Sunset Tour" package that is really helpful for sightseeing.

Thank you again for your feedback, and we hope to have you again soon!

I can't say enough about the personable service that this hotel gives. We traveled with our dog Daisy, son who's 9 and hubby/wife. :)
1. They remembered our names.
2. Small issue with air unit, but they corrected ASAP and continued to check in on us. So pleasant and personable.
3. Rooms were huge! 2 bedroom suite was bigger than my first apartment.
4. Everything was so clean.
5. Other hotel guests were all friendly and very family oriented.
6. The breakfast was large and never ending. Plus, the evening drinks and appetizers were delightful.
7. Loved the pantry for late night munchies and grocery service (free service) that allowed me not to have to go to the grocery store.

We will return!

Room Tip: Bottom two levels are for pets.

I'm so glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us! Thank you so much for taking a moment to write a thorough review. I am glad to see that even though you ran into an issue with the A/C unit, that it was fixed quickly and followed up on.

I'm also happy to see that you took advantage of the grocery service! Many of our guests don't know about that free service, and we really like to try and spread the word as much as we can - it's especially helpful during holidays and other stressful times.

Thank you again for your compliments, and we hope to have you again soon,

This is our second trip to the island and we will definitely stay here when we return. We were here for Christmas and the staff was absolutely wonderful to be around. Our family of 4 enjoyed a lovely, clean suite that was well kept by the staff. The hot breakfast offered a wide variety of choices, and the staff that kept the breakfast area clean was engaging to visit with and super friendly.

Room Tip: The swimming pool and hot tub were amazing.
