We checked in at 4pm and a staff member was on site to check us in. Our yacht was the Merry Berry, it sleeps 5 which was my wife and I and 3 grandchildren ages 6,6 and 8. There are 4 other yachts you can also rent that sleep 2 to 4. This classic yacht never leaves the dock but...

We stayed at Dockside for an overnight Couples getaway on 3/5/16. Checking in was a little bit of a challenge because there is a tiny strip about 3 car lengths long where you can park temporarily to check in. If that strip happens to be full (which you can probably expect on a weekend) then youre pretty much out of...

My husband and I spent one night on the Serenity, but wished it could have been longer! Spotlessly clean, well-equipped and nicely located for visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific, many shops and restaurants around Rainbow Harbor, as well as venturing into the East Village Arts District of Long Beach. We were gently rocked to sleep. The bed was a...

Purchased 2 night stay for husbands birthday. Was hesitant because I am not a fan of water but knew it was something he would enjoy. Not only was he surprised but amazed how nice the yacht Sea Peepers was, docked at end of pier, quiet, view of Queen Mary, LIght House; turned out to be a much needed get away....

We only stayed one night on board the Merry Berry. Our boat was spotless, charming and the bed was heavenly! We loved relaxing on deck to watch the night skyline. We wish we had stayed longer and had time to walk and explore the stores along the shoreline and the Pike. Kent was a gracious host and made us feel...

I discovered Dockside Boat and Bed via a LivingSocial.com special. It's not cheap to stay here, but you're paying for the experience and it's worth it. With the LivingSocial deal, it was extremely reasonable! We spent one night on the Sea Peepers at the end of September for our anniversary. I have to say it's pretty awesome to stay here!...

We intentionally stayed on one of the older (but bigger) boats, the Merry Berry, because it had the best view off the seating area in the back ( see the photos). There was just the two of us, but the boat would easily sleep four. Check-in was good. The view was awesome! The boat however, is old, so It did...

Thank you for your review. You are correct that the Merry Berry is an older boat, and most boats seem to have a "boat" smell. In the Winter months it's harder to properly air out the boats and bring in the lovely fresh salt air. But we are glad you enjoyed the boat's premier location and the restaurants in the...

We are so disheartened that your entire stay was mired by your check in. When I checked your daughter in, I greeted both of you. You seemed quiet and content to let your daughter handle the check in. There was never any intention of ignoring you or making you feel uncomfortable. We do tend to focus the check in procedure...
