Was there this weekend with the hubby, have to say it is the best value in town! We got a really good deal, around $80 for a room with a king size bed and water view! Nice, friendly staff and clean rooms. It may lack some amenities but it had everything we need and for the price you really can't... More

I definitely feel like I got my moneys worth! My hubby and I stayed here last week during our trip to Cedar Key and were delighted to find such a great value in a town thats known for being a tourist trap. All of the other places we checked out ran about $125 a night but we found a room... More

As soon as I walked into the front lobby, I was greeted like an old friend. I felt very welcomed. The paintings on the walls reflect the area and they r beautiful. Our room had a 180 view of the gulf. Very very clean! No noise from the streets. I love this hotel!!!

My Husband and I travel to Florida at least once a year for the last 10 years but had not heard of Cedar Key until discovering it on a map on our most recent trip to Florida. It started out as just a day trip but when we saw the sign for $59.95/night we had to check it out. Savannah... More

We stayed here over Halloween Weekend in Room 6. The room had a magnificent view of the water and for $84 + tax you just can't beat it! The room was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. We expected a lot of commotion for Halloween Weekend but surprisingly the motel was very quiet when we returned around 11pm... More

Cedar Key was a quite surprising little place and this hotel, although not much from the street. It has clean, spacious rooms. It is another dated and the television is very old, but the ambiance of the town more than makes up for any lack of amenities. Would be nice to have a coffee maker or station as there really...

I stayed here one night while traveling through the area and was amazed to find such a great deal! I will admit that when I saw the advertisement outside of the building for $59.95 Sunday-Thursday I was skeptical as to why their rates were literally half of the other hotel on the same street (Harbor Master) for the same night....

We stayed one night at the dockside motel as a stopover through the area. Savannah at the front desk could not have been more pleasant, check in was easy and the rate was cheap enough-$83 for a Friday night. The room was clean and large but pretty dated and tired. Small 20" tube tv that didn't work well, mildew on... More

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
