“Very clean in the heart of key west”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

This hotel was very clean with a very courteous staff. Great location within walking distance of practically everything. Sunset celebration, food , bars, shops, beach are all within a 15min walk. There's a complimentary drink from the bar upon check in, fresh water by the pool, and one of my favorites was they werent so strict on the pool closing and i was able to take a late night swim after a long day/night

It has been about a month but my wife and I are still in a daze from what a wonderful time we had on our trip to Key West! The food was amazing of course, but what really made the trip was our accommodations!! This is a perfectly located, amazingly renovated, incredibly priced, and wonderfully staffed hotel! We were greeted with smiles and when it was time to leave, they actually seemed genuinely sorry to see us go. The room was so comfortable to the point where we found ourselves wasting part of the day away just relaxing. I guess it could be considered bad that the bed was so comfortable that we almost slept til noon haha! The bathroom was very modern which my wife loved.

We were both so happy with the instant familiarity with which the folks there treated us. We ended up chatting a few hours away at the bar Saturday night with them (and Friday after dinner for that matter).

I can't say enough about the location. Directly on Duval but not enough to keep anyone up with noise. We didn't use the pool but there were definitely folks enjoying that area the whole weekend!

The best part is that the next time we go to Key West, we won't have to go to through the long process of trying to figure out where to stay!

Thank you guys very much, we could not have had a better first Anniversary!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Orchid Key Inn in Key West, Florida. It was everything the website promised and more. Clean, contemporary furnishings, all the amenities we needed, courteous staff and overall atmosphere of tranquility in the middle of all the Key West action. It was like an oasis just off of Duvall and Truman. I have recommended it to friends and family and hope to visit again in 2013.

WOW, thank you Orchid Key inn for making our visit to Key West Fabulous!!! My wife and i were so happy we stayed. Great location on Duval Street. Great staff! Friendly, honest, and remarkable. They were so helpful when we needed anything they were there to provide.
We love the Orchid because it is not another cookie cutter mega hotel.
Crazy as this sounds, there bath towels were big, fluffy, and soft. Some hotels are small and like sand paper.
Free Wifi...rocks.
Free breakfast was great. Staff was helpful at breakfast. Just can't say enough good things about this place. Loved it. We will go back and stay.

We have visited Key West on many occasions over the years and stayed in a variety of hotels and guest houses but we can honestly say after discovering this wonderful boutique hotel we will never need to look elsewhere. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The bedroom was fresh and comfortable and the bathroom spacious. We loved lazing by the pool, taking a dip in the hot tub and enjoying a pre dinner cocktail in the pool side bar. Next morning a buffet breakfast was served by the pool and had a great choice of pastries and fresh coffee and fruit. Everything was served with a smile. What a great stay, in fact we're gong back again in a few weeks.

My husband and I spent Labor Day Weekend last week. The hotel did not disappoint. I spent weeks researching hotels on Trip Advisor before I finally decided to go with the Orchid Key. From the moment we checked in the staff was personable, helpful and made us feel right at home. The room we had was awesome and the moment we stepped off Duval Street we were right at home. We will definitely visit there again!

We trusted Trip Advisor on this one, and once agaon, we weren't disappointed. LOVED this place.

First and foremost, I loved the idea - a retro, 50's style drive-in motel given a complete modernization. Our room was very new in design, with great little perks like soaps and shampoos above the standard z-grade stuff found in most hotels . The pool was a very nice refresher, and the nearby bar, with free snacks, was a great addition.

A perfect location and a handy parking spot make this a no-brainer.
