“an Oasis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Amid the diversions of Duval Street in Key West is this perfect inn. It's immaculate with an attentive staff, pretty pool and beautiful overall design. If you want liveliness, just walk out onto Duval, if you want peace, sit by the pool. Kim and staff truly know the meaning of hospitality - without being intrusive. Do I want to go back? Definitely. It was my first time there and I got to chatting with a couple - it was their 3rd visit to Orchid Key Inn. That's the kind of place it is!

The Orchid Key Inn has the look of an old motel but has been completely remodeled. The rooms are large and tastefully decorated with beach feel. Comfortable beds and very quiet for great sleep. The bathroom is all new with a large double head shower that you can remove from the wall. Separate toilet with a door so makes it easy to share. The front room has a comfortable sitting area with a pull out couch, nice bar and fridge to have your own food and drinks.

The bar is modern, yet small and welcoming. Everyday they have a great happy hour where you can get $3 house wine (which is very good) and snacks. The bartenders are friendly and the atmosphere is great. Breakfast with a full spread for breakfast (continental style) and you can enjoy it poolside.

The location is walking distance from most of the night life on Duval Street, not too long a walk but nice to be on the quiet end of town when you want to sleep. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again!

This is our third time to Key West and our third time staying at Orchid Key. We are spoiled to the superb service from everyone and feel like we have a group of old friends who really want us to have a memorable vacation. Most nights we were happiest just having Betty's delicious drinks at the pool bar and being entertained with her many stories. The staff, the hotel, the location, and the hospitality(nice breakfast) make it our number one destination in Key West.

My husband & I stayed at the Orchid Key Inn this past weekend and I must say........it was FABULOUS! The staff was incredible, the hotel was immaculate, the location was perfect, and the overall experience was FIRST rate!! Brandon is exceptional, friendly, funny, and super helpful with recommendations to great restaurants! Betty was also a super friendly and really helped us choose the perfect restaurant for the lobster thermadore I was craving!! We could not have been happier with our choice and we're CERTAIN that we will be back. The attention to detail in the rooms and yummy breakfast in the morning was over the top. The fact that there were makeup removal wipes in the rooms was an indication of the thought they put in to keeping their guests happy! LOVE LOVE LOVE

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights after staying in another "Historic Inn" the previous 2 nights, and man what a difference! The level of service and immaculate kept grounds and rooms are an oasis in the tropical heat. With out a doubt we will be back, and not soon enough. The Rooms are neat, modern and very clean. The pool area was small but there are not very many rooms so it was never crowded. If you are looking to for a small quiet hotel in the heart of the happenings of Key West, you wont be dissapointed

Great location, close to activity, but also private if desired. Kim, at the front desk, is exceptional, so friendly and a great smile! Betty, in the bar area, a great conversationalist. Jean was a wonderful server during the breakfast .
