Stayed at Amelia Island Hotel for a 5 day getaway. We orginally booked the Hampton Inn, but it was not near the water or beach. The resort was far too pricy and a little too formal. We found the Amelia Hotel which is right at the beach! A great beach without all the crowds of the beach nearer town. We could walk right out the door and across the street - there is a small restaurant on the beach - when we got tired or wanted to change in 3 minutes we were in our room.
The staff is very polite and all locals who know where everything is and offerred numerious options for eating out, tours and what shops we could find some new sandels.
The front desk was very helpful and prompt in making rental arrangements for us as the kids want to try Wave Runners and my wife wanted chairs and a cabana for the beach. The staff came through with everything - it was almost as if we were at a resort hotel, but at substantially less cost.
Ask the desk about the Trolly - what a great little way to get around. Recommend doing this first day to get an idea of the island and where everything is, including a history of the town, fort and local hang-outs.
The room we had was pleasent and good size. We did see that they are redoing all the rooms and the new rooms looked awesome. If you check in I suggest your request the new upgradded rooms.
The pool at the hotel was a tad small, but ideal for the kids after a day at the beach or after our various tours.
If you going for the beach stay or the golf (which is great) I hughly recomend this hotel. BEst location, best rates for rooms and must be the best staff on the island.
