“Great Location Great Service and QUIET”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The wife and I went here for a long weekend get-a-way. It is in the heart of Key West, right on Duval street. The way it is built and designed means there can be a raging party on Duval street, but you room is peaceful and quiet. I could not believe how quiet it was even though it was in the center of the city.

The Concierge, Brandon, was EXCELLENT. Possibly the best one I have ever used. He had GREAT suggestions for restaurants, events, activities, and attractions. Every single one was spot on and a great time. He made all our reservations for us and was able to sneak us in places that had a long wait in just 15 minutes.

When, not IF we go back, we will be staying there again. LOVED IT!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the INSIDE area on the pool side. Very quiet!

Green Features: They had the typical "hang your towel to keep, put on floor to wash" policy. Neither better nor worse than any other places we have been.

Unfortunately, we did not have an opportunity to stay at the Orchid Key Inn, but I'd like to thank the email customer service for resolving a discrepancy with the reservation cancellation policy. Thank you very much for your help!

The Orchid Key Inn is a "repurposed" old motel or motor inn. As such, the roos are not huge (but still bigger than many others in KW). The property has been beautifully remodeled and includes large showers, great beds, in-room mini fridges and microwaves, coffeemaker etc. The pool and pool deck are surrounded by lush vegetation including palms and orchids everywhere. A small bar is also on the premise. The room rate includes a nightly happy hour with your first glass of wine or beer complimentary and a very nice continental breakfast including fresh fruit, juices, baked goods, yogurt etc. All of this woud have been enough to convince us to return to the Orchid, but the very best thing about this establishment is the staff--they are fabulous! To a person they are helpful, friendly, cheery--we can't say enough good things about them. This is the kind of service that we have only experienced in the highest end resorts. What a delight. Because of the room size this property is really suited to couples, but the same folks own the Almond Tree about a half block away which has larger rooms with multiple beds and would work for families. I assume the service is comparable given the same ownership.

Room Tip: Although located on Duvall Street, this hotel is toward the southern end on a quieter part of the st...

Old motel that's been updated. Very nice although the rooms are quite small. Location is good because its right on Duval but its far down. Overall the place is very nice and employees are very friendly and informative.

We had never been to Key West before so I wanted a hotel that was central to all the activity. However, when I told my friend that we were staying on Duval St., she thought it was a bad idea. Boy, was she wrong!! The craziness of Duval St was just blocks away from the hotel, but the hotel itself was very peaceful & quiet. The room was beautiful, very spacious & tastefully decorated, & the staff was extremely friendly & helpful. I can't think of anything negative to say...we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Key West & at Orchid Key Inn & can't wait to visit again!

Room Tip: If you have the option, I would choose a room away from Duval St. The noise wasn't bad, but we...

From the moment we arrived and parked in the hotel car park (itself a major plus/achievement given parking restrictions in the centre of the city!) we loved this hotel. The staff (Brandon and Kim) were so helpful and friendly and they couldnt do enough for us. The rooms are all around the central pool and so they all have a great position and are spacious and roomy with clean bathrooms en suite. Breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice. Happy hour free drinks were also a bonus to help us get into the party spirit of Key West. The hotel is positioned on the nice end of Duval St with less noise and neon lights, but it doesnt take long to get anywhere you want from there. Fab restaurants all around too. Nothing could really be improved - we would certainly stay here again if in Key West!!
