“Lovely Visit with Family”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My daughter and her husband treated us to two nights here for our anniversary.
We had a wonderful time. We had visited the Fernandina area several times before but had always stayed in the historic district. We felt that this was a great family hotel. The staff made a big fuss over our grandchildren. Everyone was so friendly. The breakfast attendant is amazing!

We did not miss being downtown. This was close to the beach and near shopping and restaurants. A short drive and we were able to take the children to playgrounds.
The rooms are so comfortable and we really liked having a kitchen. We appreciated the internet computer in the lobby as well.

We still went to the historic area for shopping and restaurants but this seemed to be convenient to everything.

Room Tip: Splurge and book a one bedroom unity, It is so nice to have the bedroom separate from the living roo...

We booked this hotel last minute on New Year's Eve ( I think we got the last available room) and couldn't have been happier. We checked in just after 6:30 and were greeted with small bottles of champagne, party horns and hats. It was very festive and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They had a wine and cheese reception in the lobby and included beer as well as several other hor derves. Pets were allowed on the first two floors, however we didn't hear any disturbances from any of them. Our room was very clean and comfortable, no complaints at all. In the morning the breakfast was very good. It included all of the usual fare including fresh Belgian waffles. We were able to relax all morning and when we asked for a late checkout we were given one without any problem. For anyone visiting the area, this hotel is in a great location two blocks from the beach, very close to Ft. Clinch and a very short drive or bike ride from all of the downtown shops and restaurants.

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.

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.

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!
