Must see! In 1946 a young mother and her daughter painted the Murals for room and board. I just visited the hotel with the Daughter now in her 80's to see the murals that are still there and a part of Old Florida.

We stayed 2 nights for our anniversary weekend and had a great time. Our room was clean and comfortable (rm 34), breakfast was delicious (French toast!) and the Neptune Lounge was perfect for a night cap at the end of our day. Staying here has been on my bucket list since my first visit to Cedar Key 20 years ago,... More

I stayed in a king room by myself and it was large with recently renovated bathroom. Breakfast is free and delicious. The staff is really nice and not hovering. This place is old but charming, so I wouldn't exchange for a newer hotel. Great location within walking distance from banks, shopping, and restaurants.

Stayed in the Island hotel in Cedar Key in July as part of our road trip around Florida because i had read a review of the place earlier in the year. I would certainly not recommend this place to anyone, it might be quaint but that's about it. Extremely poor hospitality, particularly the surly bar lady who found it a... More

My wife and I just wanted to get away for a few days since she had just finished up with many weeks of radiation and chemo and was looking forward to a break. We had been to the hotel about 20 years before and really enjoyed it then so we were excited to return. Everything was perfect with one minor... More

Stayed 2 nights in room 29. Beautiful place, very peaceful, and helpful staff. Will be returning. Free breakfast was great and Neptune bar is not to be missed if your passing through. Large porch upstairs for all guests is very relaxing with plenty of seats.

Just got back from spending the night at Island Hotel in Cedar Keys. It is very old and full of charm and character. If you are used to the chain motels and hotels be warned there are no TV or phones in the rooms but have free WIfi for guests even though it is a bit slow. Our room 30... More

The hotel is a remarkable throwback to days of yore. My wife and I did not stay at the hotel. We did eat in the bar and found it to be a delight! The decor is remarkable, the prices are fair and the atmosphere is GREAT! The artwork behind the bar is very cool. You have to experience this place.... More

We made reservations but came early because we wanted to have a drink in the Neptune Bar before dinner. The Island Hotel is an interesting historic building and the bar is small but has a lot of character and a cozy atmosphere. There was a man dressed in a captain's uniform behind the bar (we assume the bartender) who was... More
