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....

Ended up here on a whim. Nice place. We stayed in room #2 had an awesome view of the pier and coast line. Pier directly across the street. Everything is within minutes from the hotel. Room was clean. Ac ice cold. Wifi was weak. Room needs updating and a little tlc. Blinds sucked but the location made up for that....

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...

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...

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...

Ma'am I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay. We offer all of our guests the opportunity to look at and inspect the rooms before payment. You and your husband looked at the room before you were charged for the stay and said it was fine. During your stay you did not bring any of these issues...

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...

In Cedar Key there are a total of four elevators in the entire town, including restaurants and hotels. We do not offer room service as we do not have a restaurant on site. We do however offer housekeeping, per...
