“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

This Inn exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect for enjoying Duval St yet you are still able to relax and enjoy some quiet time. From the outside the Inn is swanky and on the inside the rooms are modern and beautifully maintained. There is a hip little bar conveniently located near the pool area. Guests have the option to enjoy their cocktail in the air conditioned bar or poolside. The drinks are very good though a little pricey.
The staff is great- upbeat, knowledgeable, and seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs.
Breakfast was plentiful and fresh.
I would definitely recommend the Orchid Key Inn

The Orchid Key Inn was exactly what we were looking for in our honeymoon and first visit to the Keys. The location is amazing and the service is better than most five star chains. The staff is extremely helpful and personable. They enhanced our visit by recommending tremendous restaurants and kept us away from the many "tourist traps" you would find in such a travelled vacation stop. The pool and hot tub provide a wonderful oasis from the Keys and having breakfast and a first rate cocktail bar right on the premises near the pool was an added bonus. Kim was a huge help to us in planning our kayaking and cruise excursions as well as pulling some favors to get us prime time dining at some hidden gems such as Sunset Key and Bodega. This coupled with the champagne in the room made Key West a place we will undoubtedly return to and when we do, it will be to the Orchid Key Inn.

My sister and I selected this hotel not really expecting more than a place to stay while we enjoyed Key West. We were wrong! The Orchid Inn blew our expectations out of the water! All of the staff went out of their way to meet our needs, make our stay pleasant, and help with our daily plans. The two people in the hotel office always greeted us with a smile and answered all of our questions. They made reservations for us and all of their suggestions for places to eat and things to do turned out fantastic. The staff who prepared breakfast in the mornings and the bar tenders were always pleasant and smiling. The hotel itself was like a calm oasis in the midst of such an active place. We will definitely be going back!

Friendly and helpful staff, located on Duval which allows you to be close to anything worth seeing or doing. Romantic feel so ideal for couples too and the pool is nice. Best of all, the staff will take care of you, meaning everything from dinner reservations to tour suggestions - just ask and you will be pleasantly surprised.

We were here at our "home for a week" to share a high school graduation with family and friends. Our room was always clean, we loved the art work and the wonderfully comfortable beds. The breakfast was always delicious and fresh, and at five, the same room was transformed into a happy bar where friends and family came to meet us and celebrate life. Kim, at the front desk, helped us with every detail of planning a successful festivity. The location was perfect for us all--even including a parade!!!

Room Tip: The larger queen room had more storage space than the smaller one.

Green Features: Thought they were good--did not wash sheets every day. Recycle good.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Orchid Key Inn. We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are modern and clean. And Kim at the front desk was awesome, anything we needed she had great recommendations for places to eat. She would also try to find drink discount cards for any place we went. We wanted to rent bikes and she had brand new bikes delivered to the hotel. Ann at the bar was warm and welcoming. The pool in the courtyard is a great place to get to know other people staying at the hotel. We made some great friends. We will definitely stay here again!

Stayed here for two night in September 2012. The Inn is just a short walk away from all the happening bars on Duval Street . Ernest Hemingway House is located just around the corner worth a visit to see his house & all the cats . The bedroom was clean & very nicely decorated with a hugh bathroom . They had an adequate self-service continental breakfast by the pool area in the mornings. The pool area was very well kept with a lovely pool, hot tub & sun-loungers. They have parking on-site for guests . Thanks to Trudy & all the staff for a lovely stay in Key West.
