Reviewed today NEW

The very best thing about Beachside Motel is that... it is beachside! Proximity to the beach was great. We were on a second floor room and it was quiet. There is a kitchenette in the room, and they offered a continental breakfast.

So we are from SW Florida about 5 min from Sanibel island. We have seen and stayed in some great place on the beach. This place was a very pleasant surprise to us. The location was outstanding! The rooms were so cute and beachy. Very clean. When you open the door to the outside you can hear the waves. It...

The location was ideal with a fantastic sandy walk to the amazing beach. The pool was inviting and well stocked with chairs and towels. The room was spacious and clean and provided...

This little hotel is located right on the beach. I was a little concerned due to it being a pet-friendly hotel but....everything was so clean. Not even a speck of sand in the room. Sweet staff. Wonderful location. Great pool. Did I mention you walk through the sand dunes and right on to the beach??? It isn't the Ritz, but...

This was are 2nd stay at the Beachside. The rooms have been updated and location is good. However some things have not changed. We arrived about an hour before check in after a very long drive and could not get into our room. We were told we could sit at the pool or enjoy the grounds. The last time we...

Thank you for your comments. Sorry to hear you were not pleased with check in or not able to find the dishes in the cabinet. We try our best to have all rooms available for our 4pm check in time or before. We cannot accommodate all rooms with an early check in but do always try to make all rooms...

Thank you for your comments and happy you enjoyed your stay here. We are very pet friendly but reservations for pet friendly rooms must go thru our motel office as we are limited on pet friendly rooms. We look forward to your next stay with us.

I like motels that aren't too fussy. The Seaside Amelia used to be my favorite, but I think Beachside Motel has them beat because they're so accommodating and clean. Rooms are simple and it's easy to go to the beach. The price is definitely right for a beach motel, too.
