“Home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Many places don't live up to their reviews or photo's. Orchid Key is different, and my wife and I were delighted to discover this little gem in the heart of Key West. A traditional motel design around a pool, that's been turned into a stylist boutique hotel that's modern, clean, fresh and tastefully decorated. The rooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms have that luxury feel to them. We stayed in both the Junior Spa Suite & Deluxe King. With the cool bar and friendly staff like Kim & Amy, we felt at home immediately, and really enjoyed our stay. No more worries about where to stay when we come back.

Spent 4 days in Key West, each night at The Orchid Key Inn. Brandon checked us in with wonderful personality and information regarding The Orchid Key Inn. The room was very clean, well appointed, with a most comfortable bed! The bathroom was stylish and most important, very clean as well. The pool was lovely as was the hot tub. The complimentary breakfast is great, and the little bar by the pool, pretty darn cool, with fun and gracious bartenders. The Orchid Key Inn overall is a lovely little gem, well thought out, with enthusiastic, helpful and professional staffing. We will be back, and will recommend it to our many Key West fellow travelers!

We stayed here for our anniversary and I would come back again & again! Brandon is wonderful! He makes you feel pampered and special.
We rented a junior spa room (king bed + whirlpool tub + mini fridge) the room was very nice and comfortable. They seem a little small but for two people it's great. Glass shower door, seperately stall/room for the toilet and a flat screen Hi def TV.
The pool is nice and goes up to 5ft. The deck furniture is ratan and comfy plus they supply towels for everyone outside. There is a hot tub too. They also have a small bar and a nightly happy hour. Michael makes the most interesting drinks and the bar is open all day.
The hotel is quiet and close enough to the fun "Sloppy Joe/Market Square" craziness where you feel like you can enjoy a crowd but get home and sleep well.
It's across from the Conch Trolly which is fun to do and also near The Rum Bar (which is fabulous!)
The staff cleaned the rooms well and offered to make dinner reservations, excursion trips and restaurant recommendations too. They also arranged for transportation to the airport and to the latitudes ferry for us.
I would recommend this place to all my friends! We loved it!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

I only stayed here for one night but I was quite surprised by the level of quality in amenities and service.

I had a standard queen room off the pool area and it was really packed with alot of amenities for a "motel." A nice coffee maker, fridge etc. And a flat screen TV that was HUGE! Almost out of proportion to the size of the room.

Finishes in the room make it feel like a high end spa, nice touches through out.

All of the employees were extremely helpful and friendly and continental breakfast was way above average in terms of what you usually get.

The only thing that keeps me from rating this one more star is: It is after all said and done a motel. So if kids are splashing around the pool, you'll hear it. Early morning, it poured like cats and dogs and the noise was so loud from the rain, It woke me right up and I thought the roof would cave in. These are relatively minor points and did not stop me from enjoying the motel.

Recommended!
