If the owner Rocky can't make you happy, you're impossible to please. He is the defintion of bend over backwards and went WAY out of his way to see that our every need was met. I stayed there a few years ago and the improvement under his ownership is vast. It's still the same motel but he is making leaps... More

First off, the location of this waterfront motel is ideal, right on the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, everything else needs work. We stayed here during a thunderstorm and wind and rain came into the room through the side of the window and beneath the door. There is no electrical outlet in the bathroom for a hair dryer or any other... More

We enjoyed our one night at the Beach Front Motel. The location cannot be beat...it is THE perfect place for a motel on the key. The owner upgraded our 2 rooms for free and we appreciated it. That being said, the motel appears to be a work in process. They have only been reopened a year and it appears that... More

For the price. This is not a fancy hotel. This is a small motel on an island of a couple hundred people. There are no chain hotels here, just smaller motels and B&B's. We made our reservations weeks in advance with some other friends. When we got there our reservation did not exists despite our email confirming it. There were... More

Very comfortable, clean, big, bright rooms with amazing views right out your window. The location is great. You can walk to restaurants and shops. Nice pool. Tile floors, nice beds, good internet services. The owner was very friendly and showed us the room at check-in. We really enjoyed our time in Cedar Key and would stay here again.

Rocky, the owner, will go out of his way to please. The room was clean, and the price was right. We would recommend getting a room facing the water. The motel is easy walking distance to bars and restaurants

This motel is unique that you can see both the sunrise and sunset! The new owner is very friendly and the rooms are clean. The motel is pet friendly and has a nice pool overlooking the gulf. We look forward to coming back!

I write this review on the morning of our first night while listening to the neighbor snoring. I am in the bathroom so as not to awaken my daughter and I could not hear him from the room proper. The location of this hotel on Cedar Key is lovely. Look at the map and photos. It is beautiful. There is... More

What a gem, right on the ocean in Cedar Key. Very reasonably priced and the owner and staff are friendlier than most. Easy walk to all the island hot spits. We had to leave a day early due to bad weather coming in as we traveled in on bikes. The owner was nice enough to refund our money for that... More

A great place to stay to enjoy Cedar Key! The views of the gulf and the amazing sunsets are spectacular. The staff is friendly and very helpful. An easy walk to downtown and the city park and beach make one's stay enjoyable. As a bonus for many vacationers, the motel is pet friendly, so your best friend is welcome as... More
