I stay there every year for business. The family owned and operated hotel is the best! Quaint, quiet, great food in restaurant, and the nicest people you would ever want to meet. An employee, Angel, is the sweetest kindest, most awesome! Treats you like family, and does everything she can to make you feel at home. I will continue to...

Visited Cedar Key for a quiet birthday celebration with the family. Could not have been better. This Inn is located on the business street that is not busy at all. The Inn is in a historic building and takes you back to a visit of older times. The air conditioned B&B was great Left our doors open during the day...

Enjoyed our overnight stay in this one of a kind historical hotel. The antique furnishings added a special charm, and the atmosphere was unique. Employees were very friendly. We enjoyed the friendliness of the locals in the bar, and had a delicious meal in the restaurant. Especially enjoyed relaxing in the swing on the upstairs porch.

We had a great room with an exit to the second floor porch. We found that this is not necessary because the hall exits to, the porch. We found the personnel very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is very elegant, but serves a hearty complementary breakfast.

Staying here with the family. This is my find of the summer. Phenomenal old Florida with a wonderful eclectic flair. If you want a break this is the place to come. I hope this hotel never changes. Wonderful reception, great quaint rooms. This is a must visit for any one who relishes in the interesting.

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...

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...

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...

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.
