“Beautiful inn on the quiet end of Duval”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

We stayed here for four nights and very much enjoyed it! We had a junior suite which was situated off the main drag of Duval Street. The location was great since there were several restaurants located nearby. The staff was very helpful especially when my husband had to fax an important document. I highly recommend staying here!

We happened upon this incredible "motel". Completely refurbished 4 years ago, it harks back to my days as a very young kid traveling with my parents and stopping at motels. The Orchid Key Inn does that memory great justice. The outside is immaculate and beautiful. The room was nothing short of stunning. Located right on Duval St, its a quiet and calm oasis in the midst of crazy old Key West.
The "small" bar by the pool was very well stocked with wonderful wines.
The staff was very warm, friendly, and helpful.
This is a must-see stop. Highly recommend it. We will return to this fantastic "motel".

We stayed here for 3 nights and wished it could have been longer. Everyone was very friendly and helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat and were spot on in their recommendations.

The breakfast was delicious and Michael makes the best cocktails - I would recommend the mojitos!

The location was great too, on Duval street, but at the quieter end. We would love to return.

My wife and I have been coming to Key West for the last 4 years now. I stumbled across this Great hotel. From my understanding it wasn't open to long because they newly renovated this property. Great location on the quiter side of Duval Street. Brandon and the entire staff could not be more accomodating and helpful. Rooms were very clean and property very well kept. Able to just park and walk to where ever we wanted. Nice breakfast and happy hour. After a long day of craziness which we enjoyed it was nice to come back just to relax by the pool and hot tub to unwind. This is our only chioce for a hotel destination in Key West. See you next November and many Thanks!!

I just got back from a 4 night getaway with my MOm to Key West. We booked a package through Travelocity for air and hotel. The Orchid Key Inn is a cute little hotel which is more like a bungalow than hotel. They have a small, clean poo and hot tub. We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast and complementary Happy Hour appetizers. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful especially Brenden. Unfortunately the hotel was pretty booked so we had to share a Queen-size bed but since we booked last minute that was okay for a few days. The rooms have a/c but don't have any fans which I generally prefer but other than that they were small but functional rooms. The friendly staff and atmosphere are what really made our stay so pleasant. The location was ideal...just off Duval street and close to everything

This was our first trip to Key West, therefore our first trip to Orchid Key Inn. We added a drive down to Key West for a few after a seven day cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. By the second day, we asked if we could stay another day, so we turned our three night stay into a four night stay. We were sad to leave. We were very happy with everything they offer there. The retro feel property with high end fit and finish is beautiful. It's a tiny quaint little property marked by beautiful vintage neon signage. Everything is supremely clean. They take good care of the rooms, pool, grounds and foliage on a daily basis. Relaxing by the pool in sun or shade was easy and carefree. The staff were all excellent and wanting to extend themselves as gracious hosts. We enjoyed Betty in the Orchid Bar daily for cocktail hour. She was fun to chat with. The little bar is great to chat with the locals who come in for Betty's tipples and the other guests from around the world (yes you, Maryland and England). We also enjoyed the lovely breakfast ladies who set up shop in the morning in the bar area. It is a continental breakfast of store bought goodies, but there is lots of it of every type. We fell in love with the toaster french toast and never walked away wanting more. OKI is located right on Duval, but away from the party zone. There is lots to do, see and eat all within walking distance. We are already planning to get back to Key West and OKI in May 2013. We can hardly wait.

The Orchid Key Inn definitely lives up to it's rating. My husband and I spent a few days in Key West and were so happy that we chose to stay there. It is far enough away from the craziness of Duval but an easy walk if you choose to join in the fun. The staff was very friendly, the rooms and grounds were immaculate. We wanted for nothing. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we have had in a long time. We were sorry that we had to leave. It is definately on our come back list.
