Dirty baths,Hair in shower and floors. Moved to another room and then gave up. We should have moved to another place. But we were on a fishing trip. Over rated on the internet. We like old school travelers and stayed up in an old place in Cedar Key.

Our family spent 2 pleasant nights at this property (room #117). It is very homey with a 50s-style vibe--it reminded me very much of the little family-run places I've seen in the Florida Keys. Only one key per room and rooms have basic locks (one on the door handle and a deadbolt). Our room had an en-suite bathroom (with hairdryer),... More

I quickly received a response from front desk manager Betty, advising that she had a room with a king bed, a twin bed, and a kitchenette, and that it was waterfront. I... More
