We stayed for 2 nights at the Dockside. If you're looking for class, look elsewhere, but if you're looking for a place that is very reasonably priced, clean & close to the restaurants & shops, I would recommend Dockside.

Hey, it's Cedar Key and the Dockside Hotel matches it's surroundings. While not the Ritz, the Dockside Hotel is convenient (right in the center of activity), offers a great view of the water (if you are in room #2), is clean and the Wi-Fi works well. BTW, the price is very affordable. Parking is challenging on a busy weekend, but...

Great place to stay if you want to be being close to restaurants,bars and shops on Cedar Key. Our room was huge with a great view of the water. I will say though that the decor is dated and you will have to ask for more pillows and towels. The best thing was they called and texted early in the...

Was there this weekend with the hubby, have to say it is the best value in town! We got a really good deal, around $80 for a room with a king size bed and water view! Nice, friendly staff and clean rooms. It may lack some amenities but it had everything we need and for the price you really can't...

I definitely feel like I got my moneys worth! My hubby and I stayed here last week during our trip to Cedar Key and were delighted to find such a great value in a town thats known for being a tourist trap. All of the other places we checked out ran about $125 a night but we found a room...

As soon as I walked into the front lobby, I was greeted like an old friend. I felt very welcomed. The paintings on the walls reflect the area and they r beautiful. Our room had a 180 view of the gulf. Very very clean! No noise from the streets. I love this hotel!!!

My Husband and I travel to Florida at least once a year for the last 10 years but had not heard of Cedar Key until discovering it on a map on our most recent trip to Florida. It started out as just a day trip but when we saw the sign for $59.95/night we had to check it out. Savannah...

We stayed here over Halloween Weekend in Room 6. The room had a magnificent view of the water and for $84 + tax you just can't beat it! The room was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly. We expected a lot of commotion for Halloween Weekend but surprisingly the motel was very quiet when we returned around 11pm...

Cedar Key was a quite surprising little place and this hotel, although not much from the street. It has clean, spacious rooms. It is another dated and the television is very old, but the ambiance of the town more than makes up for any lack of amenities. Would be nice to have a coffee maker or station as there really...
