Was traveling to Long Beach for a wedding and just staying over one night. I found out about Dockside while looking for a hotel near downtown. After booking the room I was trying to coordinate flying in on a early plane, getting dressed and at a wedding by 3pm. I called the manager and ask if I could come by... More

An excellent way to get away from it all without really going too far. Spending the night on one of their yachts is a great way to get a feel for what it is like to live on a boat without the expense of actually owning one. The staff was incredibly accommodating. This is a great way to see the... More

made a last-minute decision to stay overnight on a boat, not a lot of opportunity for that up in MN. Was greeted kindly by staff. Beautiful area, located within feet of bay area shopping and restaurants, and a gorgeous view of the bay, including a front-row view of the lighthouse. Stayed on Obla De Obla Da, one of their newest... More

We had stayed at the Dockside Boat and Bed twice before so we were excited to go back. This time we paid for the upgrade and stayed on a bigger boat. We arrived at 2 and got situated with our new surroundings. We noticed the people across the dock from us were checking in also. After sitting on the back... More

This review is a prime example of an innkeeper's tricky job of pleasing everyone. The guest is correct, the boat next to them did have more people down than is allowed. We do allow guests to entertain up to 6 additional people until 10 pm. We were called before 9 pm. When I arrived on at 9:20 , I saw... More

Spent the night with another couple on the “Perfect Landing” earlier this month. The vessel was clean and well appointed, with LCD flat panel TV and small kitchen. What was especially nice, was the separation of the sleeping quarters, allowing us to get together in the ‘living room’ area or the nice seating areas on the two decks to enjoy... More

Truly an unconventional lodging experience, which is awesome. We stayed in the Ranita last week-end and I must say that it exceeded my expectations. I thought it would be a cramped space but turns out it is spacious. Not suitable for handicapped people though as there are a lot of little tiny narrow stairs. It was clean, not spotless, but...
