My wife and I recently spent two nights at the Dockside Motel and we couldn't have been happier. Some pros and some cons- but the good stuff definatly wins out. First, if you have the opportunity- select room # 1. This is a very very large room on the corner- this gives you some beautiful views out the windows. The... More

We recently took a side trip to Cedar Key as we headed back to NC. We had been to Cedar Key a few years ago and enjoyed the stay. We arrived late in the afternoon on a Wednesday, and started our search for a room. After calling numerous motels and researching rates, we opted to look at The Dockside. $59.00... More

I have a lot to say about the Dockside Motel (not a hotel, folks...) and it is ALL GOOD. $59 Sunday -Thursday and only $30 bucks more on weekends. I read all the reviews and after calling and leaving messages for two days, I finally got Wolfe on the phone. He is the caretaker of the Dockside and a cool... More

We stayed at the Dockside which is right across from the city dock. Got some good pictures of sunrise and the pelicans. The best part was Kens Keyside Diner next door. They have great food and old 50's theme.

We found this gem by looking at TripAdvisor while driving into Florida, the reviews were great and we couldn't have been happier with our experience as well. We intended to stay only one night but the town was so neat that we added another night just so we could have time to explore the area. We had a room overlooking... More

Great view of gulf and dock street. Nice room. Clean, decent bed, and mini fridge. Owner was nice and easy going on check out time. Parking was tricky, but you can walk Dock street because the hotel is in a central location. About $85 for weekend night, good price.

We decided to detour to Cedar Key on our trip and arrived in town without a reservation. After reading many trip advisor reviews, we decided to ride around and look at the places available. We almost went to a hotel across from the city park and are glad we didn't. (There was a cat on the top of the counter... More

My husband and myself usually stay here during our visits to Cedar Key. We have always enjoyed staying with them, and this time was no different. Their rooms are nice and clean, the location is hard to beat, and we love being able to see the fishing pier and water from our room. The staff is friendly and always aim... More

I have read a few horrible reviews and was deeply saddened by them, because this place is seeping with Old Florida hospitality and New Florida conscience. The room (we stayed in #6) was very very clean, the bathrooms nice and clean, and the views breathtaking. You walk across the street and are in the middle of bars, shops, restaurants and... More
