“A wonderful surprise !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Low Key Hideaway with our Brother and Sister- in-law in celebration of our anniversary . When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Cindy. The rooms are very clean , ( I was expected that old musty smell.. Yuk) but was pleasantly surprised by the smell of CLEAN!! The rooms are comfortable, and decorated with original artwork . The back patio was a great place to hang out. Loved the Tiki Bar ! Pat is a great bartender! We were deluged by huge storms, but that didn't stop us from having a blast! Great place to stay when wanting to explore quaint Cedar Key. We are planning a little family reunion next summer, and will not consider another place for our annual get together! Oh yeah, did I mention the sunset!! Breathtaking!! Can't wait to get back!

LKH is the light house of Cedar Key! This was our second stay here almost 4 years. We will never stay anywhere else on Cedar Key. Pat and Cindy continue to create an atmosphere that is unforgettable. Completely laid back, yet attentive to the needs of all who stay. Memories continue to be made here!

This was our first time at the Hideaway, and we certainly hope to return. The location, and property really are great. This 6 room hotel offers exceptionally decorated, clean, comfortable facilities with a coastal view that is hard to beat. Close to numerous restaurants, shops, shops and boat tours. The Tiki Bar was quirky, and fun! Jimmy Buffet would feel right at home. By all means, visit the Hideaway if you are looking for a relaxing, un-hurried, un-crowded Florida vacation.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room #2 of 6, and it was just fine. I'm sure they are all very nice.

Green Features: Very focused on protecting the coastal environment.

As a native Floridian, I had been to every part of Florida except Cedar Key. We checked a few ads and then chose Low-Key Hideaway. Upon arrival we were so impressed - this place is even better than it looks on the internet website. Pat & Cindy have really created something special here...a work of art. They are also professional photographers. The rooms are not huge but they are comfortable. After a trip down to Dock Street to see the local highlights we decided to grab some groceries and just hang out there at the motel. The grounds are beautiful, the hosts are friendly and the Tiki Bar is all you need for entertainment. As I was sipping a beer, the resident cardinal flew over and perched upon my head (the hair stayed dry). The Low-Key Hideway will be an annual vacation spot for us.

Room Tip: Room 5 is on the end and is only a few step from the Tiki Bar.

Relax, enjoy, like Jamica on the Florida Gulf Coast. The Low Key Hideaway in Cedar Key is totally amazing. The motel was originally a little motel on the causeway going into Cedar Key. It has been converted into a truely amazing place by two amazing people.

This is a resort, a small one, but never the less a resort for couples with a nice tiki bar, emaculate grounds, a great pier that has nice seating over the water. The attention to detail is astounding, with lighting at night, sculputed gardens and totally unique decorations all over, even around the RV Hook Up spaces.

THE ROOMS
The room was really the best part of our stay. The furnishings, kitchen, layout and decorations were tasteful, CLEAN and equiped, did I mention attention to detail? The rooms knock it out of the park with romance; hence the theme of a couple's retreat with your dogs in tow. I will not say anything negative about the rooms but remember the original structure gave a limited level of space. We stayed in the Purple Room and it was really exceptional.

SERVICE - EXCEPTIONAL
The love of my life is a business owner so she picks up on service quicker than I do. You can tell the owners enjoy their place, it is their passion and the service shows it.

LOCATION
Great, you are in shouting distance from the little town of Cedar Key, which is one of my favorite places in the world. Cedar Key is a fishing village that is catching on with Bohemnian people aroung the U.S., it is still small, quiet and quaint and the people are so nice. The unspoiled scenery and wildlife still abound; the Pelicans are local residents in force.

AMENITIES
The Tiki Bar and it's dock are totally charming and maybe 50 feet from your room, or RV so you can freely walk to the dock, pick up your Tiki Bar Drink of Choice and head out to the pier / dock swings or enjoy hanging out in the bar, BTW the Low Key clientel is the best, really nice people and everybody has a dog.

Another big plus is the covered pation outside of the rooms with great seating and scenery; you can chat up the guests really easily and get to know their dogs.

SUMMARY
Clean, Cool, Relaxing, Unique - great

Thanks so much to the owners - a great couple with a tremendous creation

Room Tip: I liked the Purple Room

Green Features: The place uses a lot of old bicycles for decorations whick is a nice form of re using worn out metal that would otherwise end up in a garbage dump

Such a uniques place. The owners are so nice and you can tell they love each other and what they have created there. We attended a wedding there. It was a perfect spot for a casual wedding. They have a really unique tiki bar. The husband does incredible photography and the wife wears many hats and is good at all.
