This family has it & is doing it right! Awesome room, everyone was personable. Pool was clean as was the entire Motel. Close to all places of interest. Many rooms appeared to be full but so quite, just what I needed. Our view was just right helping with my need for as Shirley put it... Much needed R&R!!! Just not... More

We stayed one night with a family friend. We arrived from out of town at 1:30 pm and were told by the lady at the front desk that check in was not until 3:00 pm and that she had not yet taken her lunch and she was leaving. She was very rude in that she made us leave the office,... More

I only wish I could answer each negative review in a manner everyone would deem appropriate. I strive to answer them honestly as to allow others to get our side of the story. We make it clear on all confirmations sent to guests, that our check in time is after 3pm. This is necessary due to the high occupany during... More

The location of the Beach Front Motel was fantastic! It was on a corner and we had the breeze and the view on two sides. So relaxing! The pool sat in the corner too! Very refreshing! The owner is very nice. She and her husband and the staff were very accommodating.

Our room was simple, clean, and quiet. The pool was refreshing and we were able to walk into town. The air always had a breeze, and it was beautiful to just sit and relax. If you are there for the beauty of the town, this is the place for you. IF you are looking for 5 star accommodations go into... More

Found the hotel tucked against the shores of the gulf of Mexico in Cedar Key, FL. The lady at the registration desk was great. Got checked in and went to Room 216. Checked out the room and it was circa 1950 with a 49 dollar microwave added. The door barely closed and the dead bolt did not latch. Therefore the... More

It has taken me longer than usual to respond to this review,partially due to the fact that it has taken me this long to absorb the mis-stated reality of your visit. There was no mention of ANY of these issues while you were here, even though we inform arriving guest that we are here if they experience ANY issues that... More

We absolutely love Cedar Key. We have never had a complaint about a motel until now. The front desk do not make you feel welcome, & are rude. Like here's your key, now go away. Room stunk of body odor. If you had any problems w/their rooms, they were quick to refund your money. This visit was the July 4th... More

I can only point out that even after all of your complaints, you still requested to spend an additional night at our establishment...you refused to let our manager come in to your room to investigate your complaints, thus leaving us no way of fixing whatever you were not happy with. You are somewhat correct as to our willingness to refund... More

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.
