“This was a WOW! Should have reviewed sooner!”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

Just reserved August stay today! Can't wait to go back! Stayed in standard room last time, trying terrace suite this time. Staff is five star in my opinion. Super nice, made eye contact as you approached desk. May sound silly, but it was little things. Good morning from front desk staff as you came down to an understated great, fresh breakfast. I know service and food as a 17 year restaurant manager, and trust me, they get it. They use all white linens. They are spotless. Room was clean, but I believe the white linens improves how clean it feels. Yes, could use a little update in spots, especially bathrooms. But not bad at all, just a bit aged. Everything can't always be new, but as long as its clean, and it is, I really don't care. Beaches are fantastic, town in general is fantastic....i could go on and on, but i won't. Thanks AATB!!! SEE YOU IN AUGUST!

A golf tour operator recommended this hotel to my husband as a "boutique" hotel but it ended up being a nightmare. There was rust in the tub and the air conditioner was loud and filled with mold. The worst part were the bugs: waking up to dead roaches that would still be on the floor after the room was "cleaned" for the day, feeling tiny biting from something in the bed during the night and, worst of all, suspecting (and later confirming) that I had contracted lice by our 5th and last night there. I wish I had said something to my spouse after our first night there but he was trying hard to make our couples getaway perfect. Perhaps something positive will come from sharing this horrible experience.

First, let me thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay at The Amelia Hotel at the Beach. We value your input and realize the importance of seeing our hotel through our guests' eyes.

I was concerned when I read your review and wished you would have reported any issues to any member of our staff at any point during your stay in February.

We take every guest comment very seriously and will use your review as an opportunity to better serve our guests needs.

Our guests generally comment on the cleanliness of our hotel and how service oriented our staff is. I apologize that your experience was in such sharp contrast to others noted on this site.

While we are unaware of any bug issues, we do subscribe to a monthly extermination service and it has been thoroughly investigated. We were unable to locate any infestation of any kind.

Again, I thank you for taking the time to remark on your stay. Should you wish to further discuss your concerns, please feel free to contact me personally at the hotel.

I chose this hotel from photos an reviews online. What a find! We had a balcony with waterview outside our fabulous suite. The bed was a dream, as were the huge bathroom, giant TVs, and all other amenities. Home-baked cookies and Half-price Happy Hour add to the fun. Fernandina Beach is a fun and busy spot, especially during Spring Break.

Room Tip: Our waterview-with-balcony room is the best! Room 200.

This hotel is across from the beach. It has very nice rooms with a refrigerator and microwave. The breakfasts are very good, as are their freshly baked cookies! It is always relaxing to stay in a nice, non-chain hotel!

I was a little disappointed with this hotel. We talked about moving to another hotel, but in the end, stayed.

The pluses - across the street from the beach, clean, great hot breakfast included, large rooms, in room refridgerator, free internet, reasonable rate, great big pool towels, across street from a decent on the beach restaurant /bar (ask to sit in upstairs balcony), ladies at the reception desk are very personable.

The negatives - the interior is tired, needs a coat of paint, bathroom dated, furniture in rooms is dated, air conditioner is loud, small pool is a square of water surrounded by concrete sitting on the parking lot. The hotel is not on the beach, it is across street from the buildings that are right on the beach.
