“Awesome place to stay in Key West!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I almost don't want to add my review on Orchid Key Inn in fear that I won't be able to get in next year. It was THAT GREAT!

The employees were so friendly & welcoming (especially Brandon who we've now adopted!) that it made our stay our best Key West visit yet.

Our room was very clean & comfortable - had everything we needed & more. Microwave, refrigerator, fresh fruit, bottled water...

The pool was quiet, clean with a nice mix of music playing. The continental breakfast & free drink at happy hour were an added bonus.

The small bar is a hidden Key West treasure. We found it a couple years ago & why we decided to give the Inn a try.

We will DEFINITELY stay here again next year!

My wife and I were on vacation in Key West last week. The entire staff, Kim, Betty, Brandon, were fabulous. The rooms were clean and quiet. You have access to everything in Key West, with just a short walk. Kim and Betty were a wealth of knowledge on restaurants, bars, directions. They helped us pick some great places to eat. The Orchid Key Inn is a true gem and when we return to Key West, we will definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at the Orchid Key Inn with friends for a week. I most definitely would stay there again. The personel were very attentive and helpful. The hotel was immaculate. The continental breakfast had many different choices and the happy hour was terrific as well. Although the hotel is located on Duval Street, it is quiet at that end and you can walk everywhere! I would recommend this hotel to everyone and would be sure to stay there again. Thank you Orchid Key Inn for a wonderful vacation!

Room Tip: I would suggest a king size room near the pool.

Stayed at the Orchid Key recently with 3 couples. We were there for one week and wish we could have stayed longer. The Orchid Key is a real gem located right on Duval Street at the quiet end. Most of the rooms face into a courtyard where the pool and hot tub are located and you literally do not know that you are on Duval Street. The pool side rooms are extremely quiet and sitting by the pool at night you would think that you are on your own private deck. The Orchid Key has 24 rooms and, although they are on the small side, they are very updated and clean. Let's face it, you spend very little time in your room when in Key West but all told the rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. At the Orchid Key you are made to feel very comfortable and welcome. The staff is exceptional in every way. Kim, at the front desk is special. She helped us in so many ways with recommendations, reservations and info on Key West - anything to make our stay enjoyable. Brandon also works the front desk and is extremely personable, professional and helpful. Betty, the bartender, is a fun person who is a true mixologist. She has come up with a number of her own concoctions such as the "Blue Orchid", which are unique and delicious. I could go on and on and mention the entire staff, Trudy and others - they all go out of their way to make you feel at home. Never have we stayed at a place where the staff is more concerned with making your visit a pleasant one. Breakfast and a drink at happy hour are included with the room. The breakfast consists of juices, coffee, pastries, rolls, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, cold cereals and more - a full, delicious continental breakfast. By the time you leave the Orchid Key, the staff have become your friends. We will be staying at the Orchid Key again.

I decided to take a vacation on my own since I couldn't find a friend that was available to run away from the cold wx in Chgo on short notice. This hotel was clean, friendly, the included breakfast was very nicely done, and the coffee was great. The accommodations are very comfortable and decor is recent and tastefully done. Bed is very comfortable with great pillows. The little bar by the pool is awesome and even locals like to come and hang out there. What makes this place really shine is the helpfulness and kindness of the staff. The bartenders (I mostly saw Mike) all were super friendly and personable. The front office staff, Kim and Brandon are wonderful people, and recommended the best excursions. The location was right in the middle of everything, yet not so close to the nightlife that you could hear the partying. My room was absolutely quiet. I stayed 5 days and was sorry to go.

Room Tip: The hotel is small, I don't feel there really is a bad room there. Mine was away from the pool...

We stopped at the Orchid Key Inn's Orchid Bar for a drink upon our arrival in Key West and got so much more. The bartender that evening was extremely outgoing and helpful. Thanks to her we received great restaurant tips and the drinks were phenomenal,. The inn was beautiful in that old style, I wish we had stayed there. Next time . . .
