We enjoyed our stay at this hotel built in 1859. Our room was attractive, and the mattress was comfortable. The en suite bathroom was small, but there was a table for toiletries and shelves nearby. We enjoyed the second-story porch with the big swing and rockers. It was the perfect place to read, nap, and watch passersby. It is close...

This is one of the old hotels that has been updated and is a very nice place to stay. They have a dining room with breakfast included and dinner at night. We stayed in room 36 which is on the second story by the balcony. This room has a bathroom with shower in the room which is fairly small but...

Really unique old hotel with a lovely dark wood bar area that locals love. Everyone so friendly and we will be back. They have rooms there as well upstairs with a large balcony overlooking the town. Understand the food is excellent as well.

Historic hotel with lovely antiques. Room was very clean and comfortable. Walls are paperthin but noise quits by 10pm. Reports of ghosts seem to be true. Huge porch complete with swing & comfy chairs. Breakfast is included with your stay and was very good. Staff was very friendly and most helpful. It's the type of place where you end up...

The Island Hotel is essentially an over-the-top B&B and restaurant in a laid back little fishing village, Cedar Key, on the west coast of Florida. The rooms are nice with a full sized breakfast included. The restaurant is spacious, well appointed, with a great menu. The bar is a gathering place for visitors and locals alike and you'll run into...

Stayed for two nights, wonderful ambiance, great service and delicious food in the restaurant. We so enjoyed our stay here, they definitely take customer service seriously. Clean, beautifully appointed rooms, great bar and restaurant and a lovely second floor wrap around deck perfect for enjoying the outdoors. Definitely would recommend a stay here and hope to be able to come...

Cedar Key is a hike from the Interstate, maybe an hour’s drive through scrub forest and Old Florida towns. But upon entering the once-prominent old town and smelling the salty air, you sense a change. Time to down-shift. And for a traveler like me who is into kayaking, history and seafood, you couldn't ask for more. The Island Hotel (1859)...

Some things never change and this is one. Built in 1859 as the first general store, it was used during the Civil War as a hospital, then a hotel in 1915, A second story porch was added and THAT's where you want to spend a leisurely few hours in the swing. The hotel is a grand old lady with thick...

While this lovely hotel is not on the waterfront harbour drive, it is steps away and many levels above its competition in service and comfort. The dining room is spacious, food selection has broad appeal, preparation is superb and the wait staff knowledgeable and accommodating.The separate bar is luscious and a grand meeting place. Hard to turn down escargot and...

This is a beautiful, quiet and historic hotel. Very nice. I think it is a family business and we are greeted as if we are old friends. The rooms are spacious and the walk around porch is really special.
