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

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
