Reviewed 22 June 2014

We stayed at the Orchid Key Inn for our honeymoon and we loved it! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! Kim, Sean, and Trudy at the front desk went out their way to make sure our stay was excellent. We knew going in that the room was small, but we did not need a lot of space. The quality of service and cleanliness made up for the small room size. The bathroom was clean and spacious (for how small the room was). The bed very spacious and comfortable and the room was kept very dark when the blinds were to closed which allowed us to sleep very well.

Breakfast was given every morning with variety of fruit, pastries, cereal, and bread options (muffins, bagels, toast). It was on the sweeter side, but still very good.

The bar on site was small, but had a wide variety to choose from as well.

The last night of our stay, Kim left us with a bottle of champagne to celebrate our honeymoon.

The only cons that we had were that there was no gym available and there were no drawers to put clothes in.

Overall, we loved our stayed at Orchid Key Inn and will be staying there again if we go back to Key West!

This was a perfect stop for us on our way back east after the winter of 2014. It was our first trip to the Keys and the whole staff ( especially Kim) could not have made our stay any better. The location was at the quiet end of Duval, which was ideal for us. We could still explore the entire city and then return to the hotel for rest and relaxation.

The hotel is charming. I am including a picture below. There is a small pool and a very good breakfast is included.The king size bed was very comfortable.

We really appreciated the recommendations on Key West. They were so good and made the vacation ever so much more relaxing...

Thanks again. We would recommend this Inn to all

The Orchid Key Inn was perfect. It was clean inside and out. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The location could not have been better. Right on Duval St., but towards the end so it wasn't too noisy.
My husband and I had a great time and would go back to Orchid Key in a minute.

I take care choosing places to stay as I often travel alone. This was a lovely hotel, on the main street with the Gulf of Mexico at one end and the Atlantic at the other. It's at the peaceful end of town which for me was a huge attraction. If you want a more party atmosphere, my advice is to stay closer to Mallory Square. The hotel is about 15-20 minutes walk either to Mallory or to the Southernmost attractions. There's so much to see as you go, it was never a problem. Didn't need the car and having parking on site was an additional benefit. It felt very safe and is close to so many things - including being just around the corner from Hemingway's house. The trolley/tram stops just outside the hotel. Wifi worked extremely well. Breakfast was exactly as advertised - a buffet and a very plentiful one. Plenty of restaurants to choose from all over the place. I followed a hotel recommendation and tried 915 restaurant, just opposite also in Duval Street. Well worth it and wonderful food.

We just returned from Key West for a five night stay and enjoyed our stay at the Orchid. All the employees, especially front desk, breakfast, and the bar, were very helpful and went over and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The room was clean and the king size bed was comfortable. They gave out recommendations for dining, side trips, tours, etc.... that were all top notch. You can't go wrong by choosing this location for a Key West stay. Mike and Karen from Houston

After reading reviews I had chosen this hotel and so glad I had. Everyone was do nice and accommodating. They gave us complimentary champagne and drink credits to celebrate our honeymoon. The pool was small but perfect. We started in room 104 which was closer to the road but we didn't hear any road noise. We really liked it. Two days before we left they moved us to the honeymoon suite with a $50 credit as they were having a/c issues and had to rearrange where a couple people stayed. We didn't mind and enjoyed a change in scenery although we still liked room 104 :) we would definitely stay there again!

Absolutely fantastic stay in this lovely little boutique converted motel in the last week of May 2014. The room we had was amazing, free wifi, spotless, can't praise highly enough. The staff too went out of their way to use their contacts to get us onto otherwise "sold out" boat tours. Great little bar and a fine location for nearby restaurants and the Hemingway house. Would love to go back.
