“Thoroughly enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Orchid in September. September is the off season so we got an amazing deal. We loved the location - on Duval and only a short walk to the bustle of Mallory Square. It was very quiet, except a few guests checking out early woke us up one day. We chose the Orchid for the location and we were not disappointed. We had the standard king room, and it was perfectly adequate in size. The room, pool, bar, tables, hot tub - everything was clean. The staff was always friendly and helpful with recommendations. We said we'd only stay at the Orchid on future trips.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights the last week of January. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and have comfortable beds. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly. We also enjoyed fabulous martini's made by bartender Mike during Happy Hour. Great location on Duval away from all the hustle and bustle. Nice pool and outdoor area.Thanks for a great time

This is a creative, funky renovation of a classic 50's motor inn, transformed into a classy, upscale boutique hotel! Rooms were impeccably appointed (bedding, linens, large flat screens, shower, fixtures, lighting all first rate). Continental breakfast is included, and was great. Equally enjoyable was the daily happy hour! Location ideal for walking to all the great Key West activities. Will definitely go back, and can highly recommend!

and, its lovely ! Yes its a motel, but a classy upscale motel like you've perhaps never seen. The rooms are more than comfy, the pool and hot tub are perfect, and the staff is truly friendly.

Did I mention quiet? If you enjoy leaving the nightlife of Duval/Whitehead/Simonton behind, you'll find rest at the Orchid.

And, for that early cocktail or nightcap, try the Orchid Bar. Look for Amy. She will concoct a mixture of fruits & booze (or beer/wine if you wish) that is perfection in a glass. Plus, if you need to know where to go or how to get there or even who is who, Amy has the info. Just ask her !

Room Tip: I prefer one of the many rooms which circle the pool. It gave me that feeling of being completely t...

Orchid Key Inn is every bit as good as it's number one rating. My wife and I enjoyed a nice weekend here. The hotel was tropical and extremely clean. Rooms were furnished top of the line. The staff were incredible. We wanted to visit top end restaurants that allegedly were full. The staff was able to get us right in. Also a great location.

I love TripAdvisor reviewers. They have yet to steer us wrong. When the majority of people give an excellent rating to a business, there is a reason. We only had three short nights to experience Key West for the first time. We are so glad that we chose TripAdvisor's #1 spot and stayed at the Orchid Key Inn. It's a beautiful property, impeccably maintained, very clean, and within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. After walking for miles all around historic old town, we were always so glad to walk back up the drive to the private courtyard and pool area with the soothing lights and gurgling fountains, peaceful music. Calm, restful, serene. The staff is wonderful, friendly, and down-to-earth. They are constantly but calmly straightening, cleaning, setting out towels, candles, citrus water by the pool, etc. Their interaction with the guests is genuine and generous. They really want people to enjoy themselves. And we sure did.

Room Tip: We were in Rm 125, which is right next to a side street. The road noise interrupted my sleep, but di...

We had very high expectations of the Orchid Key Inn, based on the reviews and its national listing as a top small hotel. Stayed here six nights in a 1-bedrm suite and loved it. Staff were great (thank you, Kim and Brandon), the bed was the best we've had, linens first-class, free Continental breakfast was very good, poolside Happy Hour was a wonderful transition between the heat of the afternoon and the mellow evening.

Only issue was with the TV sound traveling across the wall -- next-door guest had both their TVs blaring at midnight. We called the vnight manager who responded immediately and took care of the situation.
