“The Quiet Side of Duval Street”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Had a very nice stay with the folks at Orchid Key. The grounds and rooms are 60's motel retro but very clean and well kept. Kim and Trudy were excellent from our check in to the final good by. Can't say enough about how they made our stay special. The location is on Duval at Truman so it is a comfortable walk down to all the action at the harbor but far enough away to be quiet at night. The only thing negative that I could say is that we were in the handicap accessible room at the end of the building which made it even quieter but did not have a chest of drawers to unpack clothes into. A minor inconvenience considering everything else this cute place had to offer.

I guess the rest of the reviews say it all. We stayed from 10/17/13 to 10/20/13 which is the beginning of FantasyFest. The room is small as with all Key West Inns but has more than enough space. The room was kept EXTREMELY clean. The bathroom seemed newly renovated and the space management was EXCELLENT.... The shower was GREAT. There is no chair but the bed is so comfortable there is no need for one. There is a Keurig with pods in every room. While checking in one of the guests came in and asked for a decaf pod. Brandon asked if we could hang loose for a minute and ran out to get him some. Where in the world do you find someone willing to go the extra mile to make sure you are happy. Brandon seemed to always be around making sure things were going smoothly. It's located right on Duval St just a couple blocks from where all the action starts. It is set back so you don't get any noise from the street.
This is a great place to stay......

We vacation in Key West often and just returned from another wonderful stay at the Orchid Key! We no longer even consider other hotels. The hotel is super clean, comfortable, quiet and the location is perfect. Brandon, Kim and Trudy at the desk, Amy the bartender and the folks in housekeeping are all amazing! Can't wait for our next visit to our "home" while in Key West!

Super friendly staff, always helpful and we felt all the time welcome. Our room was next door to the pool which was embedded in a calm and peaceful environment. What is more, it is very well located to start your day or evening with shopping, bars and great restaurants located right around the corner.

We stayed for a few nights and Orchid Key Inn based on the positive TripAdvisor remarks and was so glad we did. Orchid Key is ideal for any couple that is looking to relax in the heart of Key West. The room is right off Duval but on the south side where mostly shops and nice restaurants are located so it's nice and quiet. You're just a short walk down Duvall to the main bars. The rooms are nice sized, modern, comfortable, and very clean. The service couldn't be better and the staff friendlier. The pool is small but is adequate considering the small amount of guest. The complimentary breakfast had a lot more options that I thought it would. One of my favorite things was the wine bar/happy hour. Both nights we had two different bar tenders that were very pleasant, made fantastic drinks that were fresh and unique, and were very helpful recommending places to eat and things to do. This will remain the place for my wife and I for when we visit Key West.

Room Tip: Make sure to stop by the bar for happy hour. Great prices, drinks, and company.

Special accolades to Brandon who consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. He is a genuine, honorable guy who not only is knowledgeable and professional but truly cares for his guests and shows it through his actions. Our 40th birthday celebration would not have been the same without all his help- oh, and I would never have recovered my camera from the taxi cab without his help. Thank God for Brandon...Orchid Key Inn is lucky to have him!!!

When the gentleman at the front desk in the office of the Orchid Key Inn checked us in, I already felt welcome. Our room was small but had many amenities including refrigerator, microwave and Keurig coffeemaker. I especially liked the muted orchid walls and orchid pictures that picked up the hotel name. The shower was impressive: spacious, contemporary and rustically tiled with a glass door.
The breakfast that was included was many steps above your average hotel or B & B's continental breakfast with fresh fruit, parfaits, wonderful pastries, several different breads etc.
They have a small pool (up to 5 ft) and a hot tub. Location is great with several wonderful restaurants within walking distance. I highly recommend this hotel.
