Pleasant surprise!!

Very pleasant surprise for the price! Great breakfast with nice selection including scrambled eggs, sausage and potatoes.

Room was spacious with comfortable beds. It’s an older building that’s had upgrades and needs just a little more fixing but nothing to complain about in any way.

Staff was very friendly and the beach is just across the street.

If we ever come back to Amelia we’d stay here again in a heartbeat.

Sometimes you don’t get what you pay for.

This hotel looked ok from the pictures I saw when I booked it. It was something of a disappointment however.
It is across the street from a beach, which is a plus. But there’s not too much within walking distance.
The downtown area of Fernandina Beach is a short drive away.
But the hotel is just plain old. And it’s just hard to make an old place look clean and nice. Room and bathroom needed some repairs. The A/C was annoying as it was noisy and ran constantly.
Bed was ok though.
I came away thinking I’d paid too much for this room.

Good location for one night stay

Stayed here for one night had a great view of the ocean with a balcony. There were some kind of mildew or something above the bed on ceiling.. room itself was nice, smelled ok and the bed was comfortable, the location was great within walking distance to sliders which was awesome. The free hot breakfast was really good. Staff was friendly. We did not go to the pool..did not think it was that great as it was facing parking lot. Free cookies were yummy!
Nice relaxing getaway!

Hotel room stank of mildew. Absolutely awful. Parking was fine and beach was across the street. There was hot water. If you do stay here the smell alleviated a bit with the fan turned on. Reminded me of places I stayed at as a kid as we toured the country in Econolodges. For one night it was ok but I certainly wouldn’t come here for vacation.

Terrible housekeeping.

Pros: friendly staff, good location.
Cons: first room we received smelled horribly of mold and mildew. The shower was moldy. The wall was rotten next to the shower. We asked for a second room but decided to check it out first. The second room we were shown was also moldy and there was a TURD in the shower.
Got a third room. Wasn’t moldy but was dirty. The entire hotel was dirty. Managed to get 5 hours of sleep on top of the comforter in my clothes before checking out as soon as we woke up. The hallways had little bits of trash and stuff spilled on the floor that was sticky. The ice machine was leaking water everywhere. The room was very dusty. The bathroom was dirty. Mildew on the shower curtain. Will not be back.
