This place is great! The owners have done a wonderful job updating and making this five unit hotel a one of a kind place to stay. The rooms have kitchenettes that are well equipped with everything including some great coffee. Everything is very clean too! They keep several bicycles for their guests so it was fun to ride around the island and explore. It is also nice walk to get downtown or go to the market. Would recommend staying here!

Great place!! Cindy and Pat are wonderful hosts. The Tiki Bar was really fun. There was a pot luck dinner for St Pats day. Lots of people were there. Very friendly. Loved it and can't say enough about it.

LOVE this place! The Tiki Bar at sunset is THE only place from which to watch the sunset in Cedar Key. Pat and Cindy rock. Really enjoy the locals who mingle with us tourists at sunset. The hotel is great, laid back, and the perfect place to come if you want to unplug. Just don't tell anyone, please! It is getting harder and harder to book a room here because everyone is finding this gem in Cedar Key!

Florida has so many stereotypes, it is hard sometimes to keep them all straight. Disney, strip malls and face eating weirdos can all be found in Florida as can the extremes of almost everything on the planet. So when I saw a sign on Route 19 that said Cedar Key, the way Florida used to be, I didn't quite believe it. So I looked around on the Internet. Hmmm, Cedar Key sounds intriguing. 702 year round residents -- 12 miles out off the mainland into the Gulf. But it can't really be like what is says, warm, friendly, scrub water and pine. Not many people; wide open Gulf views not blocked by homes, condos or hotels. Then I found the the Low Key Hideaway (LKH) website. Awesome video, and great ratings. Okay, we'll bite.

And so my husband went for three nights last weekend. It was the first time I have vacationed and all of my expectations were met. This is no quaint reconstruction of an old time Florida village, it is an old time Florida village, but still a working-- if not thriving, surviving -- clamming community. The people we met were all friendly and warm. The LKH is the coolest motel we have stayed at in either of our memories. We had delicious seafood at the Island Room and everything was uber affordable. The owners of the LKH were more than pet friendly and the Tiki Bar is quite a hopping place, every night that we were there.

Check out Cedar Key and the Low Key Hideaway, you will be glad you did.

Room Tip: Since there are only 5 rooms, I would say any room is just fine.

After the second Margarita in the fab Tikki bar it did feel reassuringly close by. We stayed at the Low-Key for just a couple of nights and loved it's friendly, laid back feel and were impressed by the keen environmental awareness of the owners. No5 was our room which was more than adequate, a large comfortable bed, full kitchen, tiny bathroom but a good shower and even an area to watch TV; which you would surely only do if the weather was really bad. Because the best part of Low-Key for us was the dock and stunning views beyond. We spent a good half day watching the hundreds of waders feeding as the tide receded, leaving a feast of mud and things! Lots of other birds around and nearly always at close view. We will be back and we will book before we leave Jersey to ensure we have more than two nights to enjoy more birdwatching off the dock. And of course a few more Margaritas

Room Tip: Low-Key is a mile from the main area, it took us about half an hour to walk, take a torch! or eat at...

We were not guests but would have been if we'd known about Low-Key Hideway sooner. We came to the Tiki bar to watch the sunset. The owners are wonderfully creative people and this place is where I want to be next time I come to Cedar Key! Quirky, charming and the nicest accommodations. The Tiki bar is partially constructed out of lots of colorful bottles. A perfect view of the beautiful tidal flats and when visible, the most beautiful sunsets. The bar is whimsical and fun. It was one of our favorite stops. We definitely want to come back to Cedar Key and stay here.

Want to watch the sunrise and sunset without leaving your room? This is the place. Located on a causeway to the town of Cedar Key this small little motel offers fantastic views and a laid back atmosphere. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with all of the essentials. The Tiki Bar by the dock is made of various colored bottles, very unique. The owners are the innkeepers and the bartenders and they are very friendly and helpful. As there are only 5 rooms book early as the word is getting out on this little jewel and rightly so.
