“Great Rooms at a great location”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Orchid Key Inn is an old motel, wonderfully transformed into a sleek modern hotel! The rooms are well designed, with a spacious bathroom, bedroom, and sitting area (we booked a suite for our three-day stay). You get a continental breakfast outside by the pool area, which is quiet and relaxing, and you're still close to the various Key West attractions without being right in the craziness of Duval Street (even though the Inn is located on Duval, it's on the southern quiet side). Definitely a great place to stay while you're in Key West!

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our four nights in Key West. Even though it is located on Duval Street, as soon as you step on to the property, you feel as if you have entered an oasis of calm and tranquility. We loved the bar, patio, and pool area We will definitely return to this wonderful place. A special salute to Kim whose hospitality and friendliness were simply outstanding!

Room Tip: ask for a poolside room

The orchard key inn is the most enjoyable place I have ever stayed in. The location is perfect right in the middle of Duval street but very quiet once inside the complex. Nice pool and hot tub. Very clean, modern amenities, AWESOME PEOPLE. Free breakfast and free happy hour. Brandon was very helpful and knowledgeable and such a very nice Person. Orchard Key is very lucky to have him!!

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, close to excellent restaurants, shops and the beaches. Recommend renting a bicycling to visit Mallory Square end of the island and Ft. Zachery Taylor National Park & Beach. We loved the hotel pool and pool bar, very quiet and relaxing. Would definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I just returned from 4 nights at Orchid Key. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with friendly service. The rooms are small but have all the conveniences of a luxury hotel or resort. The rooms are modern, very clean and very well appointed-- flat screen tv, refrigerator, microwave, luxury bath products and comfy bathrobes. The location is truly ideal-- on Duval, a short walk from all the action but away from all the noise. We were especially grateful for this the first night we arrived and wanted to sleep in. The breakfast and happy hour by the pool were icing on the cake! All in all we loved our stay and have already decided that we will stay again when we return to Key West-- highly recommended!

This Inn exceeded our expectations. The location is perfect for enjoying Duval St yet you are still able to relax and enjoy some quiet time. From the outside the Inn is swanky and on the inside the rooms are modern and beautifully maintained. There is a hip little bar conveniently located near the pool area. Guests have the option to enjoy their cocktail in the air conditioned bar or poolside. The drinks are very good though a little pricey.
The staff is great- upbeat, knowledgeable, and seemed to genuinely enjoy their jobs.
Breakfast was plentiful and fresh.
I would definitely recommend the Orchid Key Inn

The Orchid Key Inn was exactly what we were looking for in our honeymoon and first visit to the Keys. The location is amazing and the service is better than most five star chains. The staff is extremely helpful and personable. They enhanced our visit by recommending tremendous restaurants and kept us away from the many "tourist traps" you would find in such a travelled vacation stop. The pool and hot tub provide a wonderful oasis from the Keys and having breakfast and a first rate cocktail bar right on the premises near the pool was an added bonus. Kim was a huge help to us in planning our kayaking and cruise excursions as well as pulling some favors to get us prime time dining at some hidden gems such as Sunset Key and Bodega. This coupled with the champagne in the room made Key West a place we will undoubtedly return to and when we do, it will be to the Orchid Key Inn.
