The hotel has 14 rooms which have changed very little over the years, the hotel's website states. The rooms still have original wood floors, layouts, closets and bathrooms. 

It's located on a Florida island where local businesses are celebrated.  Castle Hotel's websites states there are no chain businesses on the island.

Nightlife is essentially nonexistent on the island, but if you're a fan of good food, and outdoor excursions like kayaking, fishing, or biking, Castle Hotel says it's the perfect place for you.

Room rates are from $100 to $180 per night, according to its website
