My husband and I stayed at the Orchid Key Inn during a portion of our honeymoon. While it was only for two nights, it was definitely a highlight of our trip. The location is great- right on duval street, but quiet enough since it’s up further from the craziness of the bars. The Ernest Hemingway house is super close as well! We walked a ton. From the outside street view, it appears to be a standard motel, but once you walk in it is amazing! Everything is updated. The front desk, bar, and our room were fantastic. You get one free beer/wine per day, which is AWESOME! And the free breakfast was also a huge plus!!! All the staff were amazing- from the awesome bartender, breakfast lady, front desk staff and the manager. People were always around and making sure our stay was going great. We stayed in the “honeymoon suite”, which had both a shower and a jetted tub, which was awesome to soak in! The bed was super comfortable. All the amenities we needed were there- microwave, mini fridge, toiletries, etc. Would definitely stay again when we go back to Key West!!! You won’t regret staying here.

My wife & I stayed Oct 8-12 & had the greatest time! Chris at the poolside bar is outstanding. Kat & Peter running the office were fantastic & incredibly helpful with all the happenings around town. Super pool (heated), surrounded by palm trees and tropical foliage with butterfly’s. It’s 1/3 of the way up Duval from the Southernmost end which is the quiet end while easily walkable to all the sights, restaurants, bars, Mallory square & everything. Looking forward to our next visit there.

We drop in occasionally and we are always happy that we do. Chris is a great mixologist and has a wide variety of specials. We also dropped in when Scott was working. Just an efficient and fun staff. Plenty of seating outside too since it’s a small bar. Great Vibe.

The rooms are incredible, spotlessly cleaned, and the entire staff does whatever it takes to make your stay perfect. Trudy the manager, Peter the Assistant Manager and their staff do whatever it takes to make sure your stay is memorable. Trudy and Peter are fantastic and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is one you won't forget. From your arrival where your met by Kat and Dasha at the front desk who expedite your check-in and make sure everything is perfect in your room Then there's Chris, Neil, and Alex who insure your drinks the Orchid Key Bar are perfect during the day, during the Orchid Key Happy Hour, and throughout the evening. Everyone's service at the Orchid Key is above and beyond any hotel I've stayed at in Key west. When you meet other guests you hear the same comments. And this is our 5th stay in a row and we find most of the guests are returnees as well, because they are the best place to stay in Key West. The Orchid Key Inn is perfectly situated on Duvall St. about half way between the North and south ends of the island. Its and easy walk to either end of the island and all the activities in between. There is no better place in Key West and I've stayed at several other 5-star properties on the island.
