5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

Our stay was amazing! We we're going to stay for just one night but couldn't resist and stayed an extra night! Cindy was awesome, very accommodating and friendly. We would definitely go back, and have since recommended for our friends and relatives to stay. Breakfast was delicious, and the rooms were very nice and clean. This is the place we will be staying at our next time in the keys :-)

Stayed there over the Easter period and had an a great time. The staff were excellent, (Even after my stay as I had left an object behind) They were very fast to send it back. The location is wonderful, it is right in the middle of so much to do and is a big selling point for this hotel. There are not as many rooms as a hotel so seems much more privatised.

The Rooms were great for just a one night stay although they seemed a little small if you were staying any longer. Bathroom had a lovely big shower and had various amenities along with it.

I recommend the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory which is very close to the hotel! The lovely front desk even had coupons for the place when I asked for it's location!

I will be the first to admit we are hotel snobs. This place surpassed our high expectations! It was incredibly clean inside and out. Staff was helpful and genuinely nice. Our room was on the end on Duvall Street. Was kinda disappointed and worried at first after reading reviews about the noise. We didn't have any problems with the street traffic, noise from pedestrians, or the roosters! We love to people watch so the outside sitting area gave us a fabulous view!

This hotel screams Key West! First of all, the staff is awesome and helpful. They willingly make reservations for their guests, most of the nicer places require them anyway. The drinks at the bar are well made and the bartender is wonderful. Every day at Happy Hour they have complimentary snacks which are nice. The pool area is great! Our room faced the pool and it was nice and quiet. The room was very clean and up to date. However, if you are expecting large rooms, you'll be disappointed as the rooms are rather small. The location is prime! All of the yummy restaurants and activities are within walking distance. We will be back for sure! Perfect place!

This hotel is a real haven of peace and tranquillity amidst the hustle and bustle of Key West. We stayed 3 nights and our room was clean and well appointed if a little small. The pool area is great with plenty of loungers and chairs. Kim and all the staff could not d7 enough to be helpful. The location is great for getting around Key West and I really would recommend taking a trolley tour if it is your 1st visit as this gives you lots of info and you can hop on and off when you want to.

I have been visiting Key West since the late 1980's. This is my favorite spot. Fab location. I can not say enough about the staff....Sean, Trudy, Kim and Amy. Rooms were immaculate. Pool side room the best way to go. Met some of the most wonderful folks at the pool. Quiet yet in the heart of things. I felt that I could not have been treated better! I would return in a heart beat. I can not stop thinking about what a special time it was and when I can return!

We decided to give the Orchid Key a try since we had never been to Key West before and basically trusted Trip Advisor (well, the reviewers) for our choice. 'Spot on' fellow reviewers! What a terrific resort it is. With only 24 or so rooms, it is clearly not your "party" or loud hotel that we all have been to. While sitting around the pool in the afternoon, you could hear a pin drop. The only sounds were the light music that gave the place a Caribbean feel. The breakfast was terrific, plenty of fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, waffles, etc. When you get there, if you need a restaurant or attraction recommendation, just ask Kim, she knows everything about Key West (good and bad!).

Room Tip: Try to get a room that is poolside. They are set back a little further off the road and very quiet.
