So for transparency, my visit was on July 3rd not too long before grill closed. I called to place a to-go order and got the owner, who informed me 'better hurry'. Ok... She however didn't turn me away. So I placed an efficient order. Knew what I needed. While the woman on the phone is been passed to rapid-fired questions... More

Even though the stay was during a holiday weekend(fully booked) the visit was quiet quaint and quirky. We had booked our stay based on the ghost presence and sightings. We were charmed by the warm welcome homey feel and historic charm. There was a downplay of the ghost stories, the proprietors were not attempting to profit from past folklore. The... More

We are so pleased with our choice. Everyone was awesome...and their breakfast was fantastic! No TV or phone but that's just what we needed. Free WIFI so one night we streamed a movie via our iPad. Loved sitting out on the balcony enjoying the street view. Grateful for this quaint getaway! We will be back!!!

Island Hotel in the sleeping fishing village of Cedar Key - at least during off season - is clearly one of the most uniquely charming hotels I've ever stayed in the U.S. With its distinctively personal design, its individually choreographed rooms, it is a most welcome change from the monotony of America's uniform hotel chains. This makes it a must... More

If you need luxury and lots amenities this isn't your place. Our room was Spartan but adequate, the owner and staff made this a pleasant stay. The food at the restaurant is very good. The town of Cedar Key like the Island Hotel is a pleasant easy going place.

We visited Cedar Key on route to Destin, FL. We happened to be there on a Saturday when they had an Arts and Craft show. My wife was into that, but I went into the Cedar Key History Museum. For the $3 entrance fee it surely was worth that. Then we went up to Destin and coming back on a... More

So much history surrounds this landmark in the center of Cedar Key! It has been very well cared for and is very popular. The room was spacious, well furnished, and clean. Twin beds were comfy though a little firm. I didn't like the bathroom across the hall but was happy to have a private bathroom. The restaurant was a little... More

We have eaten at the hotel's restaurant several times over the last five years and have found it to be wonderful. Good food, pleasant and helpful servers, and a great location. We have stayed at the hotel several times and it is comfortable and well located but remember it is over 100 years old'

This is one of our places to stay and a great bar with locals and travelers alike with lots of interesting people. It was horseshoe crab mating season on the beach which was something that we had not seen before!!! Great homemade breakfast comes with room. Ghost stories abound but we have not seen them yet!!!

We booked a room for 3 nights at the Island Inn in March. It lives up to its name! The innkeepers were very nice and welcoming and made you feel like family. We ate the wonderful included breakfasts in the dining room each morning and they never missed a beat with eggs done to perfection and the French toast everyone... More
