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

My first trip to Cedar Key. Came around the corner on Dock St. and the motel was right there, and had the best mid-week prices I could have ever expected. The room was super clean, king size bed, refrigerator, microwave, TV and free wifi. The owners greeted me with a smile and made me feel very comfortable. If I ever... More

A friend and I jumped in the car and hit the road for a few days of fun and sun. Dockside was a real bargain and Phil and his sweetie the best. Their knowledge of local color and where to eat were spot on. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Would I stay there again? Already planning my next... More

My husband and I spent two nights here (Sunday and Monday)...booked only for the first night, but after seeing the room and strolling around the small town we knew we'd want to stay another night. The rate per night was $59.95, tax included, which was very reasonable. I made the phone reservation with Phil and when I said we were... More

The dockside hotel is a perfect place to stay in cedar key. Phil and Rosie run a great place. It is spotless and we really enjoyed room 2 with the windows for the sunrise and sunset. The price during the week was low and well worth it. Hate to let others know about this place but they deserve all the... More

Cedar Key is a funky, end-of-the-road place well worth an overnight or weekend visit. But many of the town’s accommodation offerings are overpriced. Book a waterfront-view room at this modest but comfortable second-floor motel. It’s a basic, old-style place undergoing a gradual update, but it’s spotlessly clean and has all the essentials. The owners are friendly and hospitable in a... More
