My husband and I were planning on spending one night in Key West, while vacationing in Florida. We were so happy with this inn, we spent two nights. We would of stayed longer, but had to catch a plane home. The hotel in very clean, well decorated and quiet. Walking distance to shops and restaurants on Duval Street. The pool and hot tub were clean, so pretty at night. Kim is fantastic. She is so friendly and informative, always smiling!! We do travel often, stay in 5 star resorts and hotels, the Orchid Key Inn is in the same category!! We cannot wait to return!

We chose this motel based on the positive reviews on tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. Ideal location on Duval St--within walking distance to just about anywhere you would like to go, yet far enough away from the action to serve as a quiet retreat. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. We never got around to trying out the hot tub, but the pool was a great place to relax. Eat breakfast every morning poolside, and enjoy drinks from the bar in the evening, surrounded by beautiful landscaping. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again. This is simply the perfect place to stay in Key West!

I relied on Trip Advisor in choosing this hotel. The Inn has some good points, good location, reasonably priced parking on site, prettily decorated rooms.
Unfortunately, a few of the staff were distinctly cold and the room had a smoky odor which permeated my luggage and clothing. I would have asked to switch rooms but did not realize that the odor had been masked until I left. The Inn is not deserving its high rating because of the haughty welcome, ordinary breakfast and just all around lack of hospitality.
The breakfast lady and the female bartender were great, though.

Orchid Key is the right place on the quiet end of Duval. Brandon, Kim, and Betty were the most gracious hosts and went out of their way everyday to ensure we were enjoying all that Key West has to offer. The location is perfect, 2 blocks from all the action. The rooms are clean and updated. The pool area is tucked away from the noise of Duval and very peaceful. We enjoyed the complimentary happy hour at the end of a relaxing day in the pool area. Thank goodness, no children at this resort while we were there which made it much more appealing. I have stayed at other places in Key West and this was by far the best within this price range. I was there with my partner for our engagement and the staff was very accomdating and provided a nice toast for us at the end of the day. By all means, I will only stay here when we come to the Keys.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect. Room 101 offers outdoor seating and a place to people watch on Duval

We had an absolutely perfect time at the Orchid Key Inn. The location is perfect - in the middle of Duvall. The rooms were lovely and clean. The pool is clean, fun and always open! More than anything, the service was beyond excellent. Everyone was warm, inviting and helpful - especially Brandon. Some of our favorite memories of the trip were from chatting with Brandon at the great pool bar! Absolutely wonderful.

The most important thing to me whenever I stay at a hotel is cleanliness, and this place is immaculate (a word I rarely use). A fabulous remodel was done to the property a few years ago. it has nice tv's, a Kuerig brewer, quiet & effective A/C, and Bath & Body Works toiletries.
The linens and towels were very good quality, the bed was very comfortable, and the hotel is on the quiet end of Duval Street. The pool area has very nice loungers, is never too crowded, and they play unobtrusive music. The hot tub is serene and we had it all to ourselves every night. They let you use the pool and hot tub 24 hours.
It is a small hotel with a very personal feel. The staff is very, very friendly and helpful. This was our first time in Key West and they gave us good recommendations. You can hear some noise in the mornings whenever they set up breakfast and the cleaning staff arrives. Also, we had a couple with a baby in the "frequent crier club" at the hotel during our stay.... not what you want to listen to when trying to relax by the pool.
The location was excellent, as most points of interest were in reasonable walking distance.

Room Tip: Try to get a suite. The king room was cramped.

Yes - everything was in place and breakfast was conventional. Had good time overall @ Key West. No reason why would not visit again. Don't take me wrong here, it was not anything special. Some minor complaint about WLAN was off several times and one night was little bit unpleasant with some girls first time traveling without mom and dad. So yes, you can go there and probably you don't be disappointed, but nothing really special to me.
