It is an old hotel, no doubt about it. If you are looking for a Hilton or Marriott you will not be happy. We ended up loving this place and the owners. Great little bar and wonderful restaurant. Breakfast was the best. We will be back!!!

Located right in the middle of historic Cedar Key, this hotel is on the National Register of Historic Buildings. It's over 150 years young but is getting a tad long in the tooth and possibly the owners are wearing out in the upkeep of an old building, as it is in need of some repair work. As an example, the...

We have been eating at the Island Hotel Restaurant for years. So my wife and I decided to go back this weekend. The first hint that this was not going to be a good experience was when the server gave us the menu and it was totally different from the all the other times we have been there. The second...

My husband booked this hotel ad a surprise for our anniversary.. It was a very quaint hotel, but we hardly got any sleep since the walls are paper thin and the noise from a graduation party did not stop until almost midnight. The food in the restaurant was wonderful, as was the included breakfast.

The location is extremely close to the gulf which is amazing. Breakfast was included in the meal and it was good, I ordered the french toast 3 days in a row.There are no TVs in any of the rooms and sound travels very easily between rooms. There is a giant cushioned swing on the upstairs deck that was relaxing to...

Try the Heart of Palm salad! The salad was originated at this restaurant and they advertise it is fixed using the original recipe. We are in the bar area, but we're able to order off either the bar or the restaurant menus. They had a small band providing entertainment the night we were there.

If you like historic hotels this is the stop for you. There was someone waiting at the desk for my arrival and check in was a breeze. The rooms are all upstairs. I reserved room #33 because you can go directly on the veranda from it. Room was small but that was no issue with me, and very clean as...

We were in room 23. It has a claw bathtub with shower curtain inside the room (not in a separate room). The toilet area is very small and does have a privacy door. The wrap around balcony was nice. The breakfast (included) was not a buffet. It was table service. Staff was helpful, courteous and Friendly.

Didn't stay in the hotel but did have dinner in the tiny bar. This is a funky little place with lots of charm. I had the potato soup which was really tasty so much so I had two cups. Their version of shrimp and grits is unique to say the least but it was very good although it was a...

I can't say enough about this historic hotel and restaurant. There are 10 rooms, each decorated with period pieces and art and all with a private bathroom. Two rooms have their private bathrooms across the hall, but they even supply robes for slipping back and forth. They are said to have resident ghosts, but, sadly we did encounter any. The...
