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...

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.

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...

We took a last minute trip to Cedar Key and wanted a clean hotel convenient to restaurants and bars that didn't break the bank. Dockside Hotel met our expectations.

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...
