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.More
