This was our 4th visit to Key West and we chose Orchid Key, extending our stay to 13 nights due to a change of plans for nearby hurricane. What can we say? The friendliest hotel and staff there is! Fantastic, comfortable rooms, nice quiet pool to relax and added extras of brekkie and drinks vouchers for the Orchid Key Bar to cool off from the blistering Florida hear and humidity. The staff can't do enough for you! Excellent food suggestions, trips, sunset cruises. Special mention has to go out to Peter who looked after us and Trudy. The bar staff were all great fun and had hilarious. Thanks to Alex, Terry and Phil.
If you are would like a small, quiet hotel just off th quiet end of Duval we can't recommend it enough.
Hotel was excellent. The Front Desk and all employees were very helpful, pleasant and amazing! Mr. Peter was the epitome of what a front desk person should be. We couldn't have asked for more. The pool was perfect and our room was one of the best we've stayed in, clean well decorated and stocked with a fridge, microwave, blow dryer etc.... The location was also perfect. We were away from all the loud hustle and bustle but close enough to walk to all the excitement of Key West. A true hidden gem! We will stay here again on our next visit.
Thank you Mr. Peter, Greg and Sondra
