I stayed at the Gulf Side for the third time last week and enjoyed it as usual. I have stayed at four motels in Cedar Key and this is the best overall. Not the fanciest, but for the money the best combination of comfort, quiet location, excellent managers (Theresa,Raul,and Kerry), who go out of their way to make the stay relaxing and fun. Raul is constantly working to update the motel and with each visit it looks 10 years younger. In contrast to the previous reviewer, I didn't see many cats around the property, though there are lots of cats in Cedar Key because it is that type of laid back community that takes care of the cat population. As to the comment about the pier. It does have some age on it, but it is sturdy and each trip I relish having my private spot at the end of the pier to fish and drink a glass of wine as the sun goes down. Many things are in the eye of the beholder but the charm of this property is habit forming! If you want the lack of personality in a property that is perfect in every respect, find a Hampton Inn. If you are looking for a laid back, friendly place to relax, give it a try!
