This was our first trip to Key West, therefore our first trip to Orchid Key Inn. We added a drive down to Key West for a few after a seven day cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. By the second day, we asked if we could stay another day, so we turned our three night stay into a four night stay. We were sad to leave. We were very happy with everything they offer there. The retro feel property with high end fit and finish is beautiful. It's a tiny quaint little property marked by beautiful vintage neon signage. Everything is supremely clean. They take good care of the rooms, pool, grounds and foliage on a daily basis. Relaxing by the pool in sun or shade was easy and carefree. The staff were all excellent and wanting to extend themselves as gracious hosts. We enjoyed Betty in the Orchid Bar daily for cocktail hour. She was fun to chat with. The little bar is great to chat with the locals who come in for Betty's tipples and the other guests from around the world (yes you, Maryland and England). We also enjoyed the lovely breakfast ladies who set up shop in the morning in the bar area. It is a continental breakfast of store bought goodies, but there is lots of it of every type. We fell in love with the toaster french toast and never walked away wanting more. OKI is located right on Duval, but away from the party zone. There is lots to do, see and eat all within walking distance. We are already planning to get back to Key West and OKI in May 2013. We can hardly wait.
