Although and older building, pleasantly surprised by the view and the cleanliness of our unit. We had two medium sized dogs which we were charged a minimal fee to stay with us. Both Teresa and Raul were very friendly and accomadating. Able to walk to dinner and breakfast, which was nice.

We stayed for one night, based on the reviews of fellow travelers for this property. Definitely not a good value as far as price versus accommodations. We had to laugh upon arrival, at the list of "do nots" that had to be acknowledged and the form signed prior to checking in.....good heavens...this is not a five star property. And, the... More

We chose Cedar Key to enjoy a quiet Old Florida town. Beach Front was a great place to stay with spectacular ocean view! Friendly staff who provided information on local restaurants. Room overlooked the water. There are benches across the street so you can relax and watch the sunset.

If you're looking for a slow pace with beautiful views, then Cedar Key is the perfect place to relax. No franchises on the island of about 800 - 900 residents. Beach Front Motel is a charming place kept in good shape. The rooms are spacious, not sparkling clean but my house isn't always either. Beautiful pool overlooking the Gulf. Ten... More

Our room, oceanfront room, had a great view of the Gulf and a view of an island we kayaked around. The room was beyond our expectations. It made our anniversary a memorable one. It was quaint, cozy, and clean. We are already planning our next trip back. Thank you so much!

We will return to this motel. It is convenient to downtown. The room was large and clean. The pool is a nice plus since many places in Cedar Key are without a pool. The staff was friendly. It is an older motel but everything in Cedar Key is older. Nothing special but more than adequate for us.

We arrived early so we knew we could not check in yet, but we wanted to ask what time to come back and get a little information about the area since this was our first trip to Cedar Key, the person at front desk was rather rude and acted like we were a bother. Not a great start...we left and... More

Beachfrontmotelck, Owner at Beach Front Motel, responded to this review

We are in the heart of the high season and contrary to chain motels, we do not have 5 maids doing housekeeping. We are a simple "ma & pa" operation with owners that jump right in and do everything needed to make the operation run smoothly. With that being said, we remember you coming VERY VERY early (11 is check-out... More

This was a last minute booking and we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was clean and spacious and the kitchen area was above average. The hotel was quiet, and we spent a lot of time on our little stoop that had chairs for gazing at the water. There was also a park bench across the street and right on the... More
