“Best Part of our Honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

We can not say enough about the Orchid Key Inn!!! It was by far the most fantastic part of our honeymoon. From the moment we checked in, the wonderful hotel staff took care of our every need and question. Brandon was Fantastic!!! He made recommendations for dinner and recreational opportunities. He was so helpful---even calling several local attractions to make reservations for us. He never hesitated to make us feel welcome and taken care of. The Orchid Key is lucky to have him! Also had some help from Kim in the office---such a sweet lady! The room itself was perfect---it felt like an island getaway on Duvall street. The location is perfect---on Duvall---but not right in the middle of all the loud bars. You're only a few steps from the action, but when you want to get away, you can. The pool area and Orchid bar are beautiful. We would recommend this gem to anyone/everyone we know. We will never stay anywhere else in Key West!

The place is beutiful, conveniently located close to everything in town. Very cute pool area. All rooms are arrange atound the pool area and there are no views out of windows. The room are compaq, nice but small. The staff are extremely friendly and service minded. Kim, in reception, was so nice and helpful when we wanted to go out and about and she reccomended a lovely beach in the National Park . Nice pool area with jacuzzi. Rooms clean and modern rooms with coffee maker, water and buscuits. Really comfortable beds. Breakfast was served by the pool area by a lovely lady who contiually prepared fresh fruit; yogurts; muffins pastries and cakes! We can highly recommend this little gem of a hotel and will with pleasure return here again!

The staff are outstanding. The hotel is not as good as the sister hotel the Almond Tree. We had room 101. The airvent in the bathroom banged for 3 nights. The room was very small, nice but small. The biggest issue was noise. It was like we were sleeping in the middle of Duval Street - Our room backed on to it. Almond Tree have free drinks everyday from 5 to 7pm - Orchid Key give you one per stay. Almond Tree has a great selection of food for breakfast and at 5 to 7pm - Orchid Key selction is not very good.

Truth is they are both very nice, but save $100 a day and stay in the Almond Tree!

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 101

The place is nice, conveniently located close to everything in town. Very cute yard with pool. Note, that everything is arranged like a motel - so no views out of windows. They are just not transparent. On the negative side should mention a very strange unpleasant smell of some kind of cleaning chemicals in the room, some mold in the shower. The breakfast is OK, but not really great. Also, I've met the least friendly bartender there I've ever met before. I thought, it's a part of their job description to be friendly... To summarize, I would never stay at this place, at least, at this price level.

We just loved this little nice hotel! Perfectly situated very centrally although in the quiet part of Duval street.
Extremely friendly and serviceminded staff. Kim, in reception, was so nice and helpful with boat tour reservation, restaurant for Christmas eve and even tips for our coming stay in Sanibel Island.
Nice pool area with jacuzzi. Clean and modern rooms with coffee maker, water and buscuits. Really comfortable beds. Breakfast was served by the pool area by a lovely elderly lady!
We can highly recommend this little pearl and will with pleasure return here again!

Stayed here for the Christmas holiday. Lovely hidden gem on Duvall. Rooms are upgraded in a modern design. Beds are uber comfy and there is a full size coffee maker in every room. Nice little fridge to cool beverages, too. The grounds are gorgeous, well maintained and the pool is great. Lots of lounge chairs and complementary pool towels. Easy walking distance to ecerything! The best part, however, is the staff. Kim, Trudy and Brandon at the front office were helpful and beyond kind and patient with all our requests. Jean handled the continental breakfast with ease and Betty, at the very cute, but well stocked Orchid Bar, kept our drinks filled, while regaling us with stories about Key West. We may have missed a few names, but we do know that it takes an Army to run such an efficient, well kept establishment. Kudos to all. Highly recommended Inn. Would definitely stay again and again!

Glad I paid a bit more to stay at this hotel. It´s location is good and easy to get to everything. The rooms are so nicely decorated with fab colors and lovely beds and linens. The bathroom was great and totally loved the little built in seat in the massive shower! Refrigerator ideal for storing beer and soda. Staff are very friendly as others have said, and make you feel welcome immediately. Nice pool and even a hot tub. Breakfast was great and everything about this place is well kept and of a high standard. Would love to go back here some day.
