I selected Orchid Key for a quick getaway based on TA reviews and once again am glad I used this site for research. The Orchid Key is both hip and "old-fashioned": hip in the room decor and vibe but old-fashioned in terms of the retro physical footprint AND the old-school emphasis on personal, friendly customer service. This is a true... More

Orchid Key Inn is a true gem. The room was very clean and thoughtfully organized. Great shower. Free bottled water. Free wifi. Extremely friendly staff. They called to have bikes delivered to us, pointed out the best beach (Fort Zach Taylor), recommended some restaurants, and answered all of our questions. Our room was next to the pool and only a...

Built in 60's motel retro style, but up to the highest standards. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfortable. Despite the location on Duval St it's quiet. The staff was friendly and attentive. Pool / bar area is very relaxing - just a great place to unwind after a day of sightseeing. We would love to come back.

Never write reviews but these guys deserve it. A true boutique hotel where all the staff (special thanks to Kim and Trudy) is committed to giving you the best experience. Clean and updated rooms. Nice bar, breakfast and happy hour. Perfect location. Highly recommended

A nice place to relax after after a day of sightseeing and driving a long way. Good location , nice rooms, not big but convenient, small but pleasant pool. Good service, the other guests were respectful and sophisticated.

Just returned after 4 great nights. We didn't want to leave! My husband and I came back to this small yet personal inn because of the outstanding service, beautiful tropical landscaping, and pleasant guests we experienced 3 years ago. Kim, Shawn, and the rest of the staff are so helpful...they really want to help make your stay the best. The... More

This was an impressive place - a small retro 50's -type motor lodge that has been updated to very high standards, stylish furniture & fixtures, very clean and well maintained rooms & grounds. Poolside bar, which serves breakfast in the morning, is a very nice addition. This is the kind of place you hope to find in laid back Key... More

We only stayed there one night. The location is perfect right in the center of town off Duval St. It's a short walk to the Hemingway house, fun restaurants or the beaches. Pool was peaceful and quiet. The rooms were recently remodeled and very nice modern decor. The staff was very friendly and accommodated our request for a late check-out.... More

This was our first stay at the Inn. The room was exceptionally well appointed and very clean. Shawn at the front desk was very helpful in guiding first timers around Key West. His restaurant choice of 915 was spot on. Bartender Alex was very entertaining and created exceptional drinks, try his gin and juice concoction . And make sure you... More
