“Many reasons to stay here”
Reviewed June 5, 2010

We stayed 3 nights at the end of May/beginning of June. This hotel cares about it's guests, & they have gone lengths to make this hotel enjoyable to guests. The rooms were very clean and the bed & even towels were very comfortable. Rooms are relatively modern and aesthetically pleasing. We stayed in the Jr. Spa Suite; it was plenty of room for 2; and the bathroom almost doubled the size of the room. The pool was very refreshing. Very clean, yet you wouldn't even know there was chlorine mixed in the water. The breakfast was sufficient, not fancy. For a great breakfast one morning, go to the Six-Toed Cat (2 blocks away on Whitehead St.) The happy hour and bar (& bartender...Shioban, of course) were great! Free drinks for guest from 5 to 6 and 1/2 price drinks from 6 to 7...very reasonable. Other benefits: free wired internet, mini fridge, pool bar opens at noon, lots of shady palms to lounge under, and a great location to boot! 1.5 blocks to the Hemingway House, 1 block to the lighthouse, 4.5 blocks to the southernmost buoy, & 3 blocks to the Cork & Stogie wine & cigar shop, and of course all the shops and restaurants right on Duval.

This hotel was wonderful. Good location. Friendly staff/bartenders, fun happy hour, great breakfast, beautiful pool w/comfortable chairs & some spots with shade, room was clean, quiet. Bathroom was awesome w/granite shower and fluffy towels. One of the nicest places I have ever stayed in, I thought the cost was reasonable, cant wait to return.

This was my fourth time staying at the Orchid Key Inn and once again, it was perfect. Upon checking in they informed me the Orchid Bar was now open full service and for the quaint happy hour, that made the trip even better. The staff was of course ever so helpful ecspecially Sean at the front desk and Linda who took care of my room daily. This place is truly top notch. I will return time and time again.

Stayed three nights. Most rooms suround pool which is all but ok.
Our room was spacious, clean and cool.
You get a continental style breakfast and vouchers for a free drink between 5 & 6pm at the small bar.
Everyone is very friendly and helpfull, especially Brendan who advised us the best place to eat. He wasn't wrong!
The only 'gripe' I had is that if you want to be at the top end on Duval Street, where the bars, restaurants are, it is at least a 20 min walk. But you could always rent a cycle. Or take a cab!
All in all, a very pleasant place to stay.

We stayed at Orchid Key Inn from May 17th to May 23rd. This was by far our best hotel experience ever. We read all the reviews on Trip Advisor and felt this was our best choice. We were not wrong. The hotel itself was great. Very clean and comfortable. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially Brandon. We had read what a great guy he is and the reviews weren't wrong. Brandon was so helpful with places to eat and things to do. He arranged our sunset sail with Danger Charters for us. He is so passionate about his home and it's preservation. Thanks Brandon for making our stay even better. The bar had only been open a few weeks when we stayed there. Siobhan, the bar manager, was fantastic. We spend several evening just talking to her in the bar. She seemed like an old friend. The Happy Hour was changed our last day there, to one free drink, from 5:00 to 6:00 and 1/2 price drinks from 5:00 to 7:00, but still a good deal. All of the other staff at the hotel were also great. The location is good. It's bit of a walk to the Mallory Square area (but doable), but I like being on the quieter end of Duvall Street. We weren't there during any special events, so all in all it seemed quiet to us. If we're ever able to get back to Key West, we won't have to look for a place to stay. This is IT!!!!!!

We loved this hotel. The rooms are contemporary and the location is central but quiet. The hotel has a relaxing atmosphere as the rooms are grouped around the pool. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Our vacation was fantastic thanks to the Orchid Key Inn. The rooms were so comfortable and luxerious. Brando's recommendations for restaurants and things to do in Key West were fabulous. Ask him about the Half Shell!!! We are already planning our trip next year. You won't be disappointed!!
