This was our first trip to Key West and we had a great time at the Orchid Key Inn. Great location, close enough to walk to just about everything. As other people have commented, the staff is truly fantastic. Brandon at the front desk was so friendly and Betty and Michael at the bar made guests feel right at home. The cleaning staff was also great.
The free breakfast was the perfect way to start each day, nothing fancy, but just enough. Happy hour was also a nice touch, a free drink and snacks of some sort each day.
Brandon recommended a couple of excursions for us which we enjoyed, a Sunset cruise and a Jet ski tour.
I didn't have issue with the bedding as other people have mentioned, was what I expected for a hotel. The towels were quite nice and were always clean.
The only bad thing I can say is that our room had a weird odor to it that I still smelled when I unpacked at home. I don't know if it is stale smoke from years ago, as the rooms are no smoking, or if it is mold/mildew. It didn't bother me enough to not still strongly recommend this place. We would definitely stay here again.
