Comfy king bed.The staff was so nice especially,KIM!!!!!She is a sweetheart.
We loved the pool,the hot tub.So relaxing.
The location was just great.We were able to walk to restaurants and shopping.
In the morning they had breakfast which was included and in the evening a happy hour with light munchies.Very nice.

Stayed for two nights in May, Would like to have stayed longer but no time.
Room ( suite) was clean, tidy and well equipped. Staff friendly. Although near the road we were not disturbed by any noise.
We enjoyed breakfast by the pool in the warmth. Location was excellent allowing us to walk to all the necessary tourist sights.

For the management :- One tiny little niggle. The toilet in the room was separate from the bathroom and it would have been good to have a small washbasin in the toilet.


Would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is a great renovation of a classic old Key West motel. Brandon on the front desk was very helpful and made me feel comfortable and welcome. The bar was great fun especially Betty. Breakfast was wonderful. I love this place!

This was our 6th trip to Key West .. Not bad for two people who work in London, UK!

The first 5 times we have stayed in the Almond Tree Inn. Which was fantastic ... And still was a draw for us this time. But we decided to try something different, although it is owned and operated by the same people.

We had walked around the Orchid Key last time we were in KW, and thought it was looking good - but now the trees are established and everything is settled in, it is even better than we had hoped.

So, first, the wonderful staff. We had a couple of problems and questions when booking online, which Trudy helped us with. And it was a bonus she was there when we arrived too. We also met Brandon then as well. Both Trudy and Brandon are wonderful hosts. If you are either new to KW, or want to do something other than the Duvall Crawl, ask him - and ask him about places to eat too. As well as being informative and educating, he is a great laugh and very entertaining.

As well as Brandon and Trudy, Kim was a delight. Again, local knowledge and really helpful. Kim ensured that the Tripadvisor discount we had asked for was put onto our bill too.

Then, there is Michael. Michael is very well known on the island, and mostly runs the Orchid Key Bar ... A must for first and last drinks of the evening .. Although its difficult to leave once you start, as Michaels cocktails are sublime! And he is great company too!

Also, all the "back office" staff are wonderful. The maid service is fast, thorough, and friendly.

Now, the location is perfect. We had a room by the pool, so away from Duvall. No traffic noise at all ... Quiet aircon, very comfortable bed, and lovely relaxing decor.

We spent 6 nights at the Orchis Key, and will be back too!

Thanks to all who made our stay memorable.

If you love Key West, but prefer the "other" fantastic things to do which are Off-Duvall .. Stay here!

Pete and Amanda, UK

Room Tip: Get a room facing the pool if possible ... But if not, it will still be great!

We decided to stay at orchid key after reading the reveiws on trip advisor. It was a grand slam decision! Brandon at the front desk was friendly , informative and extremly helpful in making our first trip to Key West a memorable experience. He obviosly loves his job. Orcid key is idealy located in the middle of duval st. making all key west has to offer within walking distance. Breakfast poolside was a great way to start your day and was included at no charge. Being only a 24 room establishment we often had the entire pool area to ourselves. A great way to celebrate 25 years of marital bliss.

We stayed here May 27-28 2012. Don't let the outside of this hotel fool you (old); the inside is modern, new and beautiful. They did an excellent job with a remodel 3 years ago and spared no expense, with the comfort of their guests in mind. Super quiet AC (can't even hear it when on). Perfect location on Duval street (on the quiet end). We had a King Deluxe room that was perfect in size and location (very quiet). Staff was friendly and helpful. I would definately go back. Price is very reasonable for what you get.

Room Tip: King Deluxe was perfect for us. Away from the parking area.

We loved this place. Great location, very clean, staff is wonderful (all front desk people were superb), rooms are almost new, breakfast is included and very good, pool area is very nice and quiet. This property is designed in a way that has enclosed the entire hotel and parking into a very secluded area in a great location. I didn't feel like I was staying in a party town.

Room Tip: This is a small hotel, so most any room is the same.
