We visited Fernandina Beach to find out what the area is like because we are coming in September. The Beachside Motel is an antiquated place on the beach. The beds are ok as is the shower. The door to the room had seen its fair share of abuse. It looked as if the door had been kicked in the past and a patch job was done. Once you get over that kind of look, the place is ok, not great, ok. Good for a family but if you want fancy this "ain't" it. The beach has lots of ocean stuff on it which should go away. The beach is wide. The area is not Destin, it's a throwback....very few high rises....small shops, etc. the north end is less ritzy than the south end which is all fancy. We will enjoy it in September.

We stayed here for one night simply because we were tired and needed a place to sleep. The rooms are typical, nothing extra. The front door could have been kicked open with no problem. Parking spaces so tight you could barely get a car in one and then you were afraid you would hit someone elses trying to get your things out. Beds were old and lumpy. Air conditioner very loud. An apple and a stale pastry was their offering for breakfast. Would I stay here again?? Probably not.

Situated right on the beach, access could not be easier. Rooms clean and comfortable. Office staff of mature women EXTREMELY pleasant and helpful. Restaurant/bar across street, The Surf makes staying here a real pleasure and ultra convenient. Bargain for the money. Would go again and again.

The only motel that has direct access to the beach at that end of the island. It's an older building, not lavish, but you are just steps away from the beautiful beach! We had an efficiency, with fridge, microwave and coffee maker, just right for our weeks stay. It's clean, has friendly people and good service. For two people it was just right!

Room Tip: The second floor has a view of the ocean and chairs outside on the walkway.
