Property is dated. Rooms were clean but pool was not. Lounge chairs broken, ripped and unusable, pool area was unattended. Pool was green and was not useable. Very disappointing for a holiday weekend.

Hello there, My sincere apologies are in order. It is very distressing to hear your stay wasn't what we like to offer. I will say the pool was having issues due to the torrential rains. The chemicals we spot on, and I even had a pool guy come and back wash and treat. Many of my guests commented the pool was great. I am so sorry it wasn't to your standards. I will promise you if you will come back we will make sure your stay is better. We really care about our guests and want you to be able to make fond and good memories while under our roof. again, will you please accept my sincere apologies and allow us to make it right.... Very Sincerely and many blessings to you. Rev. Alonzo York, Jr. Beach Front Motel, Cedar Key.

Likes- nice view from the room, size of room, comfort of beds. Dislikes- run down and poorly maintained. For example, 2 of 3 lights over the bathroom mirror were out. Pool area furniture was dirty, broken or both. But it got much worse when our roof sprung a couple of leaks during a heavy rain, as we were dozing off. We were promptly offered the room next door, which lo and behold already had a half-full bucket of dirty leak water in the bathroom underneath a couple of sagging ceiling panels that looked like they could collapse at any time. And the room smelled like mold.

Hello my friends, As I read your response I am trying to gather my thoughts to answer this situation. It is plainly obvious that we failed you in every way. I sincerely apologize for all these inconveniences. This should have been your family time to make precious memories. I understand this opportunity may have been taken from you and your family.. Our little historical relic motel, has weathered many storms, hurricanes and inclement weather. We have also had many great times at the Beach Front Motel. We are new owners and our group is family owned. Sadly we currently went through the worst year in history. The Covid crisis took a toll on every Mom and Pop business. Now, this doesn't mean you have to stay in a room that is leaking on your heads and water running under your door. The rain was torrential and caused many issues with our 65 years old property. Please let me ask you to come again, and allow us to try again. My goal is to have everyone of our guests leave with a great experience. As our funds allow we are updating in every area.... Sincerely, and heart felt apologies. Many Blessings to you, Rev. Alonzo York, Jr. Beach Front Motel

The lady at the front desk and the girl servicing the rooms were very nice, friendly and helpful. The only disappointing part was the pool was closed due to a shortage of chlorine. There wasn't a lot for us to do because a lot of the things to do were closed 2 of the 3 days we were there so we figured at least we could swim in the pool.

The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful - we interacted with several members and every one was gracious and welcoming. We went to Cedar Key for the fishing, and we couldn't have been any closer to the ocean. We could walk to fish across the street, or hop in the car for a 7 block ride to the main pier. There was a fish cleaning station, ice machine - all the amenities we needed. We look forward to going back!

Hello there, I appreciate you response. It seems we made the halfway mark with you. The little Beach Front Font Motel is a small fisherman's motel on the Gulf of Mexico. We take very much pride in offering this quaint little place for your get-away, somewhat off the grid, and day in paradise. I hope you come again, and allow us to take care of you once again. Hospitality runs our in our blood and we want you tp experience the best. We love our guests, Rev. Alonzo York, Jr. Beach Front Motel

The property was at a great location with awesome views of the water. You could see the sunrises and sunset over the water. A great place to watch the seabirds and dolphins. The manager Cody was super nice and very helpful. The room and furniture was dated, but was clean. The worst part of the stay was, you could hear every word of what the people were saying in the room next door. EVERYTHING! I’m not sure if the big building is like the smaller building up front where we stayed or not. This is the only reason I would be very hesitant to this location to stay location again.

Hello there, I just read your response, and I am so glad you enjoyed the views, and the little town of Cedar Key. Regarding the thin walls issue, I believe the sound could have been coming from an adjoining room door. the door between 104 and 105 as a very thin door and only one. there is supposed to be two doors to the adjoining. Today we added another door, this should buffer the sound.......I certainly apologize, and I ask that you give us another chance to serve you. Cody and Lonnie

Nice Hotel - beautiful view

We stayed over Memorial Day Weekend. We had an efficiency type of room with a microwave, stove, kitchen sink, full size refrigerator. The room was cute and had everything we needed for an economical stay. The value for the rate was very good. The view from the pool was beautiful. The pool area was very clean and a wonderful bonus. Location was great. We could walk to the restaurants, docks, beach, etc. We would definitely stay there again.
