This was the best Inn in the area. A place where the kids have fun fishing, swimming in the pools, The beach just right down the road, Now they are tearing down over half of the rooms to make room for a BAR!!. A pice of history for the Fort Pierce area is being demolished for something that is to go out of style in a few short years once the newness of it wares off. If they plan on using the cook they have at the Outlook bar and grill it may not last that long. The owners are making a big mistake. This WAS the best place around.

Had a great room, with the best view. Nice and clean. Bed was comfortable. Loved sitting on the deck and watching the boats go by. Complaints: Could have used some towel bars and hooks in the bathroom, no place to hang anything. The screen that belonged on the slider was off and leaning against the wall on the deck. Otherwise, it was well worth the money. Stairs only, no elevators. There were some rowdy gatherings, one kept us awake quite late. The next day, another very loud party but a call to the desk quieted them down. The staff was courteous and helpful. We will go back again.

Traveling south from Orlando to Miami and needing an overnight stop I chose Fort Pierce as it seemed a good location. I found in the Dockside Inn a great little motel, with tons of charm in a beautiful location on the Indian River. It wasn't the cheapest place in town at almost $100 p/n and for the money it is a little run down. Some of the fittings in the room are a bit tatty, and the kitchen was basic, but it was generally quite comfortable. It has been mentioned in other reviews here but I need to add that the Tiki-bar was brilliant. A spectacular sunset and a few beers by the water is a great way to end a day.

For local amenities there is not much else around it, just one small store about a quarter mile away and a two or three restaurants are close to the marina a few yards up the road.

I really enjoyed my stay here, but if you are likely to be a person who is picky if the windows haven't been washed in a while or if there isn't a flat screen TV this place is not for you. Personally, I think it is great, and the lovely people here and this beautiful little area around the waters edge is enough to make me want to return again.

We wanted a nice long weekend in a hotel near water with some sort of kitchen set up. We picked this hotel cause it came as a "featured" hotel when I searched for hotels in Hutchison Island. We got a small studio on the second floor. I'll just give the run down in bullets:
- run down and very dated unit with slanted floor that made me think I was in a Batman episode.
- no amenities other than soap. no tissue box, no alarm clock, nada.
- only one small wobbly table with a lamp next to the bed that was jammed up against a wall.
- terrible bed with an indentation so deep in the middle we kept rolling into each other all night long. it was like sleeping in a taco.
- poor lighting throughout.
- one a/c unit high in the wall. since the controls are all on the top you have to drag a chair over to climb up to be able to reach the knobs which you can barely see.
- the kitchen's setup was THE BARE ESSENTIALS: some plates, silverwear and about 4 plastic cooking utensils: all huge spoons, no spatulas!! 2pots and 1 frying pan. that's it.
- living room had two cushioned easy chairs and the tv. no tables or anything to put a drink down on.
- their continental breakfast was granola bars, packaged danishes, horrible coffee and OJ. that's it. it was ridiculous actually that they call that a breakfast.
The only good thing I can say about this place is that the dock was nice to go out on and feed the pelicans. We left early and will never be back.

We were driving from the West Coast to the East Coast and were looking for a place to stay two hours South of Ormond Beach. I arbitrarily picked Fort Pierce then proceeded to access this website on my iphone (not easy!). It appeared that the only decent hotel there was the Dockside Inn so I called them. The lady who answered was so sweet and helpful, she gave us a room on the marina which was so reasonably priced we expected the worse. Upon arrival, there she was to welcome us and suggest we should eat the their brand new Tikki restaurant, i was dubious, i've never had good food in an average hotel restaurant.
Our room was adequate and clean, it was late and we have two young girls so we just decided to brace ourselves and go to the tikki bar. Well, what a treat!! Our server was a very sweet South African girl, the table was right by the water, and the food was out of the this world: I picked freshly caught grilled fish with a salad, and it was delicious!
We opened the big bay windows and listened to the waves crashing right outside our room to fall asleep. The next morning, they had continental breakfast which we ate on our balcony overlooking the marina, then went for a walk and watch people catching fish.
The only hiccup we had is that I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night and the flush kept on filling up all night until i turned the faucet off. But yesterday i got a letter of apologies in the mail and a refund for $28 because after we left they noticed that the refrigerator was not so clean (we hadn't even noticed!)
By the way, it was really quiet at night time, i was worried they might be drunk people next door (happened to us a lot!) but everybody seemed very respectful of other people, and the hotel is well insulated for noise!
