Amelia Hotel at the Beach
Ranked #9 of 12 Hotels in Fernandina Beach
Reviewed October 4, 2011

This was our second time staying at the Amelia Hotel. We had stayed here once before and had a decent experience. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case the second time around. The room we were in was horrible, very run-down and musty smelling, not to mention that the air conditioner leaked so the carpet near it was damp at all times. There were ants crawling around the bathroom. It was disgusting. I didn't even want to touch anything in the room. I will say that the desk clerk was helpful in getting rid of the ants, someone came up & sprayed immediately. When we complained about the room at checkout, the manager listened nicely & was apologetic. They gave us a 25% discount off of only one night of our three night stay. The manager also promised to send us a voucher for a free weekend stay, but she never followed through with it. Not likely to stay there again, sadly, because we do love the location!

Four gals stayed there for one night last week and it was perfectly fine. The room was clean and comfortable. The sheets were crisp and the bedding was fashionable and clean. The bathroom was roomy. There was an extra sink in the room, set up with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker, which was nice. Having that extra sink helped get four gals ready for bed and up in the morning. The staff was friendly. The place was quiet. It was right across from the beach. It was all good. I would definitely stay there again. Was it fancy? No, but for the price and location, you can't go wrong.

Room Tip: Ocean side rooms might be more expensive and/or noisy.

This is a great hotel about 10 steps from the beach. Super friendly staff and very helpful.My family meet at the hotel for a birthday get together. We flew in so we had no beach chairs or towels and with our New England skin needed beach umberellas too. When I asked at the desk where I could rent them they said I could use the ones they had in the back room. Saved me a little money and they wouldn't even let me rinse off the sand. This hotel has a nice breakfast, not fancy but quite yummy. The rooms are clean and updated and some rooms have temperpedic beds. I'll be going back next time I'm in Jacksonville visiting my new grand daughter.

Room Tip: try a room with a temperpedic bed.

My wife and I just came back from a Friday and Saturday night stay at the Amelia hotel at the beach. Great room with a very nice king bed, large flat screen TV, refrigerator, wet bar, and microwave. Our room and the hotel appear to have been recently remodeled. They have a great staff that is very knowledgable of the area and turned us onto some very good restaurants. Breakfast was nice with everything you could want, coffee, OJ, apple juice, cereal, muffins, fruit, yogurt, French toast, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits. We have stayed at several hotels in the area but this is now our favorite. Looking forward to our next trip to the beach.
