We were looking for a place to stay one night near the water yet right close to the small strip of activity in Cedar Key and we found it. It is an older 2 story hotel with fairly plain furnishings but very comfortable and the manager let us choose our room after a short tour. We chose the one with... More

We stayed in Room 1, which we highly recommend. It had windows that spanned two sides of the room. The King bed was perfectly positioned to see the ocean cove toward piney key and the sunset was lovely. The other bank of windows faced the small marina so it was great to watch boats go out in the morning. We... More

Large clean rooms, great views and awesome people! Phil and Rosie owner/operators are fantastic! They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They even invited us downstairs to Rosie's birthday party!!! I will definitely recommend Dosckside to all my firends and family!

Looking for a place to hole up for the night after riding bike and I'm glad I found this place. The location was right along the waterfront and steps to other bars. What lacked in decorations was made up by the cleanliness and the hospitality of Phil. Phil turned this little motel into a B&B experience. Thanks again Phil I... More

Traveling with my 79 year old mother and girl friend. We are happy with the price, staff courtesy, location near the water front, restaurants, and sleeping arrangements. The room was clean. The blinds were broken (an order was in for new ones) but it all worked out with a painting to cover the gap. Great place to crash along the... More

We had a great time, Phil and Rosie invited us to a barbecue and were very hospitable! The room was great and only 60 dolars per night. A good place to stay when you're in Cedar Key! We'll certainly come back here the next time we visit!

We spent six nights at the Dockside and enjoyed our stay. Phil was very friendly and accommodating. As stated, the rooms have a microwave and a fridge, but no coffeemakers. We knew this already, so we came prepared with our own, along with a toaster. My biggest suggestion to the owner would be that he purchase some plastic chairs and... More

Can't beat the price, very convenient location with wonderful views from the room. The motel keeper was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean-ish. I have to say that because the keeper kept saying how clean the rooms are. Problem is, you don't have to look very far to find places that haven't been cleaned in a long time.... More
