We found this old (but tastefully renovated) motel to be quite charming! I wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. The king sized bed was comfortable, the room was clean, the bathroom was spacious and felt swanky. They took an old motel and turned it into a gem! The staff was friendly and the pool was a nice temperature and not crowded, although a little small, but that didn't bother us any! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone who is going to Key West for a few nights!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Orchid Key Inn for 4 nights in early June and we were so impressed and happy with every aspect of our stay! From the moment we checked in, we felt so welcomed and Kim was amazing. She gave us many recommendations on where to go, provided us with drink coupons at some of the local bars and set-up our taxi to take us back to the airport. The Inn was in a great location on the quiet end of Duval St. and within walking distance to everything. Everything about the room was great - it was exceptionally clean and I loved the shower in the bathroom! The grounds and pool were very well kept and everybody was very friendly. We loved the free breakfast in the morning - they had a wide array of options, which was great after long nights of drinking :) And Alex the bartender was our favorite!! He was so friendly and made excellent drinks, so definitely take advanatge of the happy hour they offer at the Inn. We already want to go back and would not even think of staying anywhere else!

Situated at Duval and Truman ( half a block from the Hemingway house) you'll find a spotless, peaceful, and beautiful oasis. Our room was wonderful and included a fridge and microwave, beautifully appointed with a 24 hour pool, fabulous complimentary breakfast and super-duper staff ( especially Kim) we loved every minute! We swam until 10 pm at night, received perfect assistance with reservations and suggestions, and really fell in love with the Orchid Key. We'll be back! Don't think twice. You can't go wrong!

My boyfriend and I drove down to Key West from Fort Lauderdale with no idea where we would stay. We randomly chose Orchid Key Inn and have no regrets. The attendant at the front desk, Trudy, was very nice and welcoming. She showed us the room available and the first thing I noticed was how clean it looked and how clean it smelled. The bed was very comfortable. The towels were plush and plentiful. The two bathrobes hanging next to the shower was a nice touch. The cherry on top was the Keurig coffee maker with the option of regular and decaf single cups. All in all, we would definitely stay there again and definitely recommend it.

My husband and I just returned home after spending 4 nights at the Orchid Key Inn. While I have been coming to Key West for over 40 years, this was my first stay at this property. We were so impressed with every aspect of our stay here. The location is ideal. I loved being on the more quiet end of Duval St. within walking distance to many sites/lovely restaurants. The staff were all so welcoming and helpful,gladly making reservations for us as needed. Our room was lovely. The air conditioning was at a perfect, refreshing ,consistent temperature. We found that there was ample drawer/closet space to unpack our belongings. The walk in shower was lovely as were the spa quality robes waiting for us in the room. We had a garden room and loved the fact that we had our own table and chairs with bubbling fountain to relax by. The pool area had everything you could need - an inviting pool and spa, plenty of lounge chairs and fluffy towels available. Continental breakfast was included and was appreciated. Each morning there was fresh coffee, orange juice, fresh fruit cups, yogurt with granola, bagels, pastries...the offerings are too numerous to mention. All of it was exceptionally fresh and plentiful. We will definitely return to the Orchid Key Inn for our next visit to Key West!!

My husband and I stayed here for the night and had a wonderful time. The hotel is un assuming from the outside but the rooms are very nice and clean. I am extremely picky but I don't have any complaints about this place. This hotel is great for couples who want some time alone!

We drove down from Kissimmee and stayed for two nights and it was nigh on faultless. Lovely suite, well equipped and very modern. The pool area is fantastic and unique, very tropical and serene. It's the staff that makes this a five star review though; both entertaining and knowledgable. Key West is a special place and this is a special place to stay.
