Beachside Motel

Come relax in the gentle ocean breeze at the only oceanfront motel on Amelia Island, FL. Our rooms provide a clear view of the ocean, as well as, direct access to the Atlantic Ocean. No streets to cross or cars to dodge, just you, your family, and the beauty of Amelia’s unspoiled beach. We invite you to stay…..

This is the Beachside Motel. A private motel with the atmosphere of a cottage retreat at the beach. Spacious rooms feature queen-size beds, cable television, wireless internet and optional efficiencies for your comfort. Our large-size pool overlooking the ocean is fun for everyone, whether to swim or peacefully read a book.

Begin each day after a breath-taking sunrise with our morning coffee and breakfast sweets. Although shell collecting and strolling along the ocean waterfront are the ideal vacation for some, the island provides a variety of interesting things to do for the more active person. Top off the day at one of Amelia Island’s many fine eateries, including famous seafood restaurants, featuring fresh locally caught seafood. We think you’ll find the Beachside Motel an ideal home base surrounded by many exciting and interesting things to do.

Good people but....

Very nice place! Room was spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable and water pressure was awesome. My only reason for not giving five stars is - when I made this reservation over the phone in March, the person I spoke to promised my friend and I would get the two side-by-side upstairs rooms facing the ocean. When we arrived, we weren't given the promised rooms. That was quite a disappointment since we'd been looking forward to this for months. To end on a positive note, however, Stephanie, one of the housekeepers was terrific! Made my morning with her smile.

Home Away From Home <3

This place is amazing! Great staff and clean rooms. Can't beat this place for staying on the beach in Fernandina!! This place just feels like a home away from home. I would rather stay here than at some fancy hotel.

Down Home Motel with Great Staff right on the beach

Second time we stayed here when vacationing in Amelia Island. Staff is always friendly and helpful with information on the Island.
Nice pool and beachfront property. Easy to navigate the island as this is centrally located.
Great Prices make it a 5 star value.

Celebrating our 44th Wedding Anniversary

Due to the scare of Hurricane Idalia, we were only 2 of 4 guests at Beachside which made us nice and quiet. We stayed in the Oceanfront suite and enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the ocean and feeling the sea breeze. The sunrise walk on the beach was beautiful! This is by no means “upscale” but is clean, cozy and on the beach which is what we were after. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful Room, Great staff.

Beautiful Room, Great staff. Our room was fully renovated with quartz vanity and new tile floors. It is right on the beach. Most Hotels are off the beach with some blocks off the beach. Highly recommend.
