My family and I searched for lodging in Cedar Key to get away from our busy schedules. We were pleased to find Beach Front Motel who has a pool and is pet friendly as well. The pricing is very fair and the rooms were exactly what we needed and clean. Theresa and her husband were very accommodating and very pleasant!... More

Although a little dated, the room was nice and clean and quiet. Right across the street from the water and fishing. Only real disappointment was the old and small TV. I would recommend this motel to others.

I just stayed the weekend here and couldn't be happier. The rooms were clean and decorated perfect for an island get away.The manager was so friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful time and are already planning our next trip back.

My husband and I were married at a courthouse that afternoon and decided to get in our car with a suitcase and a tank of gas and drive! We found ourselves in Cedar Key at about 9pm looking for a place to stay. Not knowing much about the town, we were LUCKY to have stumbled upon Theresa, the owner of... More

Tripadvisor has this place listed as a bed and breakfast, it is not. It is a motel. We found the new owners to be very friendly and accommodating. The room and pool area were clean. And yes, the place needs some TLC, but when we stayed the owners had only taken possession six days earlier. It was obvious they were... More

Great location and really helpful owner. We enjoyed the pool and wonderful sea views from the balcony. A great place to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the island. Great for walking, not too many hills (!) and not too much traffic.

Owner very nice...and property is right across road from water. Very quiet low key place. Room was clean and on ground floor which we asked for. It was a bit shabby...and needed updating....but we slept well and enjoyed our visit to the area.

We visited Cedar Key for the first time during the Memorial Day weekend and stayed at the Beach Front motel. Rocky was very friendly, affable, and super busy with everyone checking in for the weekend. When he showed us to our room and opened the door, we were immediately blown away with the view of the water and Cedar Key.... More

The hotel has a great view from many rooms, nice pool, and the owner is a fantastic guy who wants to make his guests happy. We arrived very late, staying only for one night because we were traveling around Florida to photograph different areas for a gallery in Miami. I would definitely stay here again. Quiet, pretty, and variety of... More

Looking at the place you may think of how the colors are ugly (pink, purple and red) but when you find out why those colors were chosen, it takes on some charm. the new owners let their little girls each pick a color. I think it is pretty sweet. I got a room facing the water with a full kitchen.... More
