The Dockside is in a perfect waterfront location along Ft. Pierce inlet's beautiful green waters, with several parks close by and the ocean a short 1/4 mile walk. There are several types of rooms, locations, and prices available. We chose a waterfront suite and were 25' from the water & ramp to the docks, and our 20' boat. We had the choice of going offshore, or fishing the river & coves, all within 1/2 mile of the hotel. The staff was friendly and accomodating, room was clean but the kitchen & bath need work and are very old & worn out in appearance. For a group of guys fishing, the room was probably just fine. Counter chipped, drawers wobbly, stove burner pans covered with aluminum foil (which can trap grease and is a fire hazard), coffee pot heating plate corroded and had a piece of aluminum foil covering it. "Continental breakfast" was packaged muffins and granola bars in a basket, with some brown & bruised bananas. The bed was comfortable enough and clean. The room had a sliding glass door (difficult to open) to the covered deck, with table and chairs for relaxing to the sound of lapping waves and outstanding scenery. Two nice pools, bait shop, with ice on site, waterfront tiki bar & restaurant (we did not eat there but it looked nice). With some repairs the room will be worth the $129 price. We will definately return, but choose a less expensive room in the Angler building instead. I do recommend the Dockside for it's location, scenery and staff, despite the disrepair in the room.
