We live locally and stay here every time to enjoy the island atmosphere safely. The property is a bit older, but clean and excellent staff. Located directly on Dock Street, walking distance to most of the Island.

This was our 4th visit, and as always, the setting was perfect. Directly across from the fishing pier, and right on the quaint Dock St...people watching and friendly smiles all day long! Savannah was our hostess, and very accommodating. We will be back, but this time in the near future! Thank you, Jim & Anne

This hotel has a prime location at the end of Dock Street, with a lovely view of the water and the fishing pier. The hotel rooms have some larger than others. Mine was quite large, with dinette table and chairs, microwave and mini fridge. The furnishings and fixtures may be a bit dated, but everything worked and it was clean.... More

Ac ice cold. Wifi was weak. Room needs updating and a little tlc. Blinds sucked but the location made up for that.... More

The view and location are key to this older hotel. The rooms are ok and the AC works great. Otherwise, they are a hodgepodge collection of funky art and furniture. They are clean though and very reasonably priced. Be aware they are on the second floor and there is no elevator. Savannah is the clerk and she seems to single-handedly... More

To take a step back in time and get to experience the "Price" of that step but however get to experience the "Quality" of that time-this is your place! Exceptionally Clean, solid amenities and exceptional service from management, never a question as to service or overall cost. Considering all the documents you have to initial and sign at most hotels... More

Came in to visit Cedar Key with no real agenda. Drove onto Dock Street and saw Dockside Hotel's very attractive room rate. We secured a room for 2 nights -a second floor corner unit with sweeping views of the Gulf.Clean and spacious, comfortable king bed- everything we needed for a wonderful stay, along with a great location across from the...

My boyfriend and I stay at dockside all the time. We love the front room downstairs. Everyone that works there is very nice and helpful. We are going back next week for a few day. We love sitting outside and watch people fish. We have met a lot of cool people while we have been there. Thank you

This is a solid two star hotel for those who remember that hotel rating system b4 internet reviews. We stayed in rm 1 which has a view on two sides of the water. It's a very large room, possibly 400 sq ft. It was decorated in an old Florida style which if you squint your eyes is sorta quaint. A... More
