Just a short stay but great little hotel/motel. Rooms were well appointed, modern and clean. Small pool area but enough to relax and chill. Friendly, very helpful staff...all in all an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: TIP: our room was near the road and we experienced noise early morning...from 6am... request a room...

We just returned from a weekend stay in Key West and after mulling over the big chain hoteLs, we decided on trying to experience the real personality and ambiance of the island. We chose the Orchid Key Inn. This was a very clean updated small and friendly hotel close to everything. Cindy was absolutely the best at trying to make our stay enjoyable which included suggestions for dining to making reservations. The big box concierge would not be able to compete. Alex in the bar was entertaining and great in mixology. He was willing to work late for guests. I personally could not have asked for a better stay and will look forward to the next visit.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of March. It´s charming and nice in all ways. Friendly service. Quiet location but close to what you want to see and do in Key West. Lovely rooms with direct access from outside. Small poolarea with sunbeds and towels.

Room Tip: Close to the pool and not by the parking.

We just returned from a wonderful long weekend at the a Orchid Inn. This 50s motor inn has been totally updated and is perfect for couples looking to enjoy a quiet respite buried in the middle of busy Key West. Cindy at the front desk provided some great advice on things to do and places to dine. We were thrown back in time while enjoying all of today's most modern conveniences. The large wine fridge in each room was a nice touch. The small bar at the pool is fun. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Request a room poolside.

This is the perfect hotel for couples getaway. The location is on the quiet end of Duval, but close enough to walk to all the restaurants and activities at the north end. The atmosphere is relaxing and quiet. There are many water features and a great pool. The Orchid Bar is a wonderful touch with continental breakfast each morning. All the staff are friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay. Definitely will be coming back!

Located on Duval & Truman, the Orchid Key is perfectly situated....around the block to the Hemingway House/Museum and Lighthouse Keeper's Museum. A 9-block walk to Mallory Square and shorter walk to the Southernmost Point. Stayed 3 nights and wish we would have stayed 3 more. Not enough time to do all the things we had planned on. We had king deluxe rooms, extremely comfortable and everyone there was so accommodating! Can't get back there soon enough!

Room Tip: Some people think the rooms near Duval are too noisy. They prefer rooms near the pool, which could...

Ultra cool, fully updated retro motel in a great Location. The rooms were beautiful, well appointed and very clean. The staff was very accommodating, professional and fun. We had four couples on the trip and everyone raved about Orchid Key. Will definitely be back.
