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...

Great location right on the main strip along the dock, we stayed on the second floor corner room with water views on two sides. The hotel is definitely dated but quaint. No elevator to the second floor. No parking, you will need to park somewhere on the street. No room service for making bed or fresh towels, although I think...

I had the pleasure of staying at Dockside on the 21st of June. Savannah, the hardest working person in Cedar Key, saw to it that my accommodations were spotless and had an awesome view. Dockside is in walking distance to many great eateries and a few quaint shops. Located directly across from the fishing pier, if you don't feel relaxed...

First time to Cedar Key. The room was clean and roomy. The view of the pier and the gulf were fantastic. The hotel manager was professional and friendly. She was very familiar with the area. Every recommendation she gave us from dining, to fishing charters were excellent. We will be back.
