“Unexpectedly excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 1 night prior to occupying a vacation rental condo on the beach which we rented for the week. The owners/managers made us feel welcome on arrival. Our room was like new, nicely decorated with comfortable beds and very quiet. There was a fully stocked kitchen, great for those traveling with kids. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet (including healthy choices too!) and being able it sit poolside before check out with a cup of tea. The Inn is located just 2 blocks from the beach and to a great Spanish restaurant, La Mancha. We had a wonderful meal of tapas of all kinds, a great first evening of our vacation. After checking out the next morning we strolled around the Amelia Island Farmers market and stocked up on fresh meat, eggs, produce! artisanal bread! cheese, pasta and more!

We recently organized a group of friends and family to stay at the Residence Inn for our wedding. Natalie & Dottie were AMAZING to work with! The property location is perfectly situated within walking distance of dining and of course the beach! Rooms were extremely spacious and the kids loved the pool! We did not want to leave!!!

Had a wonderful experience recently staying at the Residence Inn, Amelia Island. We were on a trip with friends. The service and hospitality was second to none. The hotel is impeccably clean and their complimentary breakfast was very good and everything fresh. Would recommend this hotel to everyone. Our compliments to the management and staff!

The 2 bedroom suite was large. We loved this hotel. Customer service was outstanding. Close to everything. Beach was beautiful. We lucked out since the weather was perfect. Dairy Queen was walking distance.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor. Very quiet and close to the pool.

A real gem - clean, comfortable & friendly - We booked this just an hour before we arrived - was a little nervous on arrival as there were quite a few owners with dogs in the lobby area . However. There was no need to worry as we were allocated a wonderful king suite on the pet free floor. Our room was lovely. We did have one tiny housekeeping issue but it was met with a genuine apology and corrected immediately. The staff were so very friendly and accommodating. Free wi-FI worked!!, Great breakfast In clean surroundings, good choice and well stocked. Not on the beach but you can walk there quite easily . Also within walking distance of a selection of restaurants and an amazing ice cream shop - Usually stay at The Ritz Carlton bit I think I might actually stay here again the next time we visit. Lovely stay really enjoyed it.

The hotel is located half a mile from the beach along a busy road and the views from the rooms aren't great, but our "suite" was very nice. It consisted of two room separated by a door. The living room area had a desk, a two person dining table, a sofa, a recliner and ottoman, a nice flat screen hdtv that swiveled on a set of drawers, and a kitchen with fridge, sink, dishes, coffee maker, and dishwasher. The other room was the bedroom with a large closet, another TV on a set of drawers, and a sink area that was separate from the shower and toilet, so one person can be taking a shower while the other person is brushing their teeth. Everything was very clean looking and was either new or had been renovated recently. There were quite a few outlets spread about the room. My biggest problem was the bed which was very stiff. We learned upon leaving that they will provide a mattress topper if you ask them. I wish they had asked when we checked in if we prefer a softer bed.
The included breakfast is a little better than most free restaurant breakfasts. They offer fresh fruit, including a fresh fruit salad, scrambled eggs with grits or biscuits and gravy with sour cream, salsa, and cheese. They have a waffle machine, the typical old, dry muffins, toast, cereal, and hot oatmeal. Unfortunately, for me, they do not offer vegetarian yogurt. It all has gelatin in it. The other problem with the breakfast area is that it is a little too small for the size of the restaurant. It is always packed and is hard to get a table and hard to get to any of the food or drinks. In fact they kept running out of coffee.
All in all, this is a very pleasant hotel. Unless you need to be on the beach or near the historic downtown, this is a good option. Everyone we talked to at the hotel was very friendly and helpful, including the maids.

Room Tip: The hotel is 5 floors so the top rooms are on the 5th floor. Rooms 501, 502, 503 and 504 are right...

Best hotel I've stayed in. The staff was very friendly. The GM buzzed by the free breakfast bar to check on guests. Nice selection of fresh food at breakfast. Good selection of snacks and beverage in their mini market.

Room Tip: Room was very quiet. We used the pool exit to access the lobby and dining area.
