Perfect location!! Right near the water, & resturaunts. We stayed in Room 2...beautiful view, lots of windows. Nothing fancy, but clean, spacious, & very friendly staff. And you can't beat $59 a night. Highly recommend!

Hey! That was us 50 year olds partying late on New Years Eve. Haha! We have booked for next Year. Rooms are BIG and they offer coffee in the lobby. So no complaints. And you can NOT beat $60 price tag (on weekdays). Planning on playing hookie from work and having a one night get away with the hubby. Yay!... More

Rosie, Phil and John have a class act here, providing immaculate, roomy accommodations at a great price, with tons of Southern Hospitality thrown in. New Year's Eve in Cedar Key is a fun, funky, laid back fest, and the 'Docksiders' made sure we knew where to go (and not to). Thanks for hosting that Alabama/Ohio throwdown, guys! Jody & Brett...

John and son-in-law could not have done enough for us in ensuring we had the right room for our needs (peace and quiet, second floor with lots of natural light). The were quick to replace a burned out light bulb in the bathroom, provide reference for places to eat and bring us a beautiful floor lamp for a bedside. Room... More

We just did an overnight stay at Dockside and were very happy. We were in room 2 with a great view of the main drag and the pier and sunrise and sunset. It is not fancy, just laid back, like the owner. But it is very adequate, plenty of room, comfortable bed and clean. Will definitely go back.

How can you beat $60 for a waterfront room on a rainy Sunday night in Cedar Key.We opened our windows as a storm rolled in from the gulf and loved the breeze and sound of the rain. It is not for everyone but if you want a local, down to earth place to stay where the price is right, I... More

We spent a relaxed weekend at Cedar Key and enjoyed it. We were looking for a place with no crowds or excitement, and this is it! The Dockside Hotel faces the water and overlooks a large concrete fishing pier. So there was lots to look at from our room (ask for # 2, it;s the best). Not a fancy place... More

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
