“Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

After our wedding last week, our husband and I needed a mini-moon (mini-honeymoon) to just decompress from all the activity so we headed to Key West and to the Orchid Key Inn. It's ideally located, being right on Duval, walking distance from anything you might want to do. The service was incredible, everyone greeting us with a smile or a congrats. Kim, one of the women who works the desk, went out of her way to get us reservations for dinner plus complimentary wine at the restaurant and when my husband and I returned to our room that evening, there was a bottle of Champagne waiting for us.
Everything was really beautiful. The room was beautifully decorated and provided the serenity needed after the craziness of a wedding. We stayed in the spa room and the spa tub was worth the extra money. The complimentary breakfast in the morning had a nice spread and throughout the day, you could find citrus-infused water by the pool.
All in all, the Orchid Key Inn made our mini-moon a success and I know that any time we return to Key West, we'll be staying with the Orchid.

Room Tip: we stayed in a corner room, the spa suite, and it was well worth the extra money. Large room, kitche...

We only stayed one night in Key West in this hotel.
We very much appreciated following points:
- location: in Duval Street but not too close to the upper part and so much more quiet
- room decoration is very nice and modern, even if the rooms could be a bit larger
- welcoming
Regarding the pool, it is rather small but did not look so clean we expected.

Its not often when you travel to great tourist destination like Key West that you can say that your hotel was the highlight of your visit. However, The Orchid Key Inn is a fabulous place to stay. It addition to other comments you will not find a cleaner hotel and everyday you can watch the staff cleaning every area of the hotel and grounds. The front desk staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful. A special shout out to Kim who is a real asset to the Orchid Key.

The wife and I went here for a long weekend get-a-way. It is in the heart of Key West, right on Duval street. The way it is built and designed means there can be a raging party on Duval street, but you room is peaceful and quiet. I could not believe how quiet it was even though it was in the center of the city.

The Concierge, Brandon, was EXCELLENT. Possibly the best one I have ever used. He had GREAT suggestions for restaurants, events, activities, and attractions. Every single one was spot on and a great time. He made all our reservations for us and was able to sneak us in places that had a long wait in just 15 minutes.

When, not IF we go back, we will be staying there again. LOVED IT!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the INSIDE area on the pool side. Very quiet!

Green Features: They had the typical "hang your towel to keep, put on floor to wash" policy. Neither better nor worse than any other places we have been.

Unfortunately, we did not have an opportunity to stay at the Orchid Key Inn, but I'd like to thank the email customer service for resolving a discrepancy with the reservation cancellation policy. Thank you very much for your help!

The Orchid Key Inn is a "repurposed" old motel or motor inn. As such, the roos are not huge (but still bigger than many others in KW). The property has been beautifully remodeled and includes large showers, great beds, in-room mini fridges and microwaves, coffeemaker etc. The pool and pool deck are surrounded by lush vegetation including palms and orchids everywhere. A small bar is also on the premise. The room rate includes a nightly happy hour with your first glass of wine or beer complimentary and a very nice continental breakfast including fresh fruit, juices, baked goods, yogurt etc. All of this woud have been enough to convince us to return to the Orchid, but the very best thing about this establishment is the staff--they are fabulous! To a person they are helpful, friendly, cheery--we can't say enough good things about them. This is the kind of service that we have only experienced in the highest end resorts. What a delight. Because of the room size this property is really suited to couples, but the same folks own the Almond Tree about a half block away which has larger rooms with multiple beds and would work for families. I assume the service is comparable given the same ownership.

Room Tip: Although located on Duvall Street, this hotel is toward the southern end on a quieter part of the st...
