“Picture Perfect Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I decided to go to the Keys for our honeymoon and used google earth to zoom up and down the streets to find a good hidy hole for a week!! Did we ever find it!!!!!! Kim(front desk) was our first interaction with "The Orchid Key Inn", she was great to deal with for setting up our reservations!! Once we arrived at "The Orchid Key Inn", my stomach hurt so bad from Brandon keeping my beautiful wife and I laughing and then directed us to "915" for a very nice dinner!! WOW, was he right on!!! Brandon was full of information and always good for a laugh!! Now to "Betty's Blue Orchid"(The little bar at the Inn)!! We had some rain and didn't want to roam to far, so we went to visit Betty!! We had an absolutely great time hanging with Betty and some of her regulars as well as some of the people staying at the Inn! Be on your toes with Betty and watch out for Brandon stepping in and out! Another sore stomach night!!!
The rooms were beautiful, clean and well kept!!!
The pool area was well kept, there was always a groundskeeper buzzing around picking at something!!
The place looks as good as the pictures on their website!!
Everyone there made you feel as if you had already known them, full of laughs and information for fun things to do in the keys as well as good places to eat!!!
Thank You Brandon, Betty and Kim for a great honeymoon/vacation!!!!!
We will definitely be back to "The Orchid Key Inn"!!!

We absolutely loved this upscale boutique motel. Everything about it was perfect for couples. Cool furnishings, clean rooms and pool area, romantic, great location, and a terrific breakfast and wonderful staff. We felt like we were in a mini-resort just a perfect distance away from the downtown noise. We wouldn't even consider other hotels in Key West. Next trip, we will be coming back to the Orchid Key! This was perfect for a couple that likes the night life, but also likes a quiet romantic get-away!

What a wonderful place to start our Key West experience! Brandon and the rest of the staff gave wonderful advice to enhance our first time (and not last) visit to the Keys. From dead-on restaurant recommendations to tips on when to arrive at Mallory Square for the Sunset Celebration, to where to explore off Duval Street - Brandon and the staff were great. From the morning Continental Breakfast to the evening cocktails, we were made to feel "special". The room was well beyond expectation - very clean and spacious. The location was perfect - not far from the water for an early morning visit, in a quiet part of town. Hated to leave, cant wait to get back!

From the moment we arrived we knew we had made the right choice in booking the Orchid Key Inn. All of the staff were so very friendly and helpful, from Kim at the front desk, the bartenders, the maids, the maitnence man (who rode his bike with a basket for his tools between the two properties, which we found charming) and the delightful gardener (who took his time to educate us on some of the plantings). The happy hour was nice and the breakfast spread was so much more than we expected. The room was absolutely amazing, the bed was so comfortable and overall was one of the cleanist rooms we have stayed in all of our travels.The location was perfect for us. It was close enough to walk to all of the restaurants, shops and bars, but just far enough down Duval to be quiet, romantic and quaint. We had some friends there at the same time and they were renting a very nice house for the month of June and were so pleased with the Orchid Key that they will be booking it in the future for one of their stays!

Where to begin-it's all so great! Kim and Brandon at front desk take care of everything! Recommendations were right on, make all reservations for us, gave us vouchers for drinks, everything! Room was super clean everyday. Bed was so comfortable that we didn't want to get out of it! Fully stocked rooms with shampoo, body wash, tons of towels, glasses, etc! They brought us fresh towels to the hot tub & even restarted for us! Christina at the bar was full of personality! Breakfast was a spread like none I've ever seen. Housekeeping was so pleasant! Location was close to everything yet felt so secluded at night when in the pool or hot tub. Landscaping was amazing & had such an intimate romantic feel! Can't imagine ANY way our stay could have been better unless it was longer! By far best place to stay in Key West!
