“Intimate with great location”
Reviewed May 11, 2011

Yes...as people have said, it is small. It has about 24 rooms, and looks quite unassuming from the road. The location is perfect. You are on Duval, but on the quiet end, so you don't hear a thing, even on weekends. The size makes the pool always wide open, and the rooms close to the pool.
The rooms are TINY. That was the only downfall. We had a king bed, and this would have been much better if we had a queen. Super comfy and nice beds though. The bathrooms are adequate with a suprisingly large shower.
Our shower water pressure was horrible for about 3 days. This was OUR fault though because we didn't even think to ask to have it checked, assumed it was island water pressure. We finally casually asked and had it fixed immediately (duh).
Brandon at the front desk was GREAT for local information. The bartender/breakfast staff was good, but really not super friendly or attentive.
Great happy hour, a free drink per night and wonderful breakfast. We spent more than we wanted on the hotel, but we really loved it overall. Loved the nice quiet, intimate setting.

The hotel itself is nice and has a convenient location to Duvual Street. The decor is wonderful. The staff was very helpful except the bartender. She was not very friendly and helpful at all. She totally ignored us and turned her back to us, when we asked her questions about Key West.

This hotel is in an excellent location! It right on Duval st so it is a super short walk to everything!! We were greeted by a very friendly staff. The pool is small but clean and the pool area is super cute. They have a cute little bar in front of the pool that serves drinks in the evening and breakfast in the morning. Its clear the rooms were updated recently as they are decorated very nicely and the bathroom is great! When I visit Key West again, this will be my first choice! Loved it!

Loved this hotel. Room was small but decor was trendy and luxury. Hotel is at the quiet end of Duval St which was perfect for us. Paid around $8 per night for parking which was the going rate. Vouchers for free drinks at happy hour came in handy and the free breakfast was lovely. The pool was well kept and towels were provided for the beds. Staff were friendly and overall this hotel had a great vibe. Key West was buzzing with it being Spring Break. Loads of choise of restaurants and we loved Hemmingway's House and Sunset at Mallory Sq.

This Inn was amazing! Although it was small (which I like), the staff was on hand for anything that was needed. The Inn also felt refreshing when trying to escape the craziness of duval street. It was like you own oasis in the pool area with great drinks (one free drink voucher per person) and a wonderful ambiance. Perfect location, clean rooms, and great staff. This is now my hotel of choice while staying in Key West :)

This boutique hotel was charming and has a great location. Everyone on the staff was so helpful. The pool is small, but quite comfortable. The rooms are decorated very nice. This will be the place that I revisit on my next trip. Also, as a single woman traveling solo, felt very comfortable here.

My wife and I stayed at the Orchid Key Inn for 2 nights and found all the reviews in Trip Advisor were spot on. This is a great place to stay.....nicely appointed, spotless rooms with a king size bed and flat screen TV. Staff were very nice - happy to answer questions and offer restaurant suggestions throughout our stay. WI-fI was included and worked flawlessly.

A generous continental breakfast is offered each morning. We arrived late in In the afternoon and were happy to learn that happy hour included a free drink (wine or beer) from the bar.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped with orchids displayed around the property. Lounge chairs and tables surround the pool and create a pleasant atmosphere to enjoy breakfast, happy hour, or simply soak up the sun. Restaurants and attractions are all within easy walking distance. Tour trains stop across the street. Parking is also available on site.
