Love this little guest house. Its located in a quiet area but in easy reach of the hub of Duval street. A breakfast is provided out on the lovely shaded terrace. We also used the terrace on an evening to enjoy a few drinks before heading back out. The breakfast consists of bagels, cereals, fruit, coffee etc. Couldn't ask for... More

Isolated but close enough to Duval. Very nice experience and late night dip in small pool. Thanks for the tiny little breakfast. I would visit again. Also liked the proximity to Duval. We could experience the night life and be safe.

We picked this place because it was one of the cheaper options for hotels in Key West. The hotel is about a 20 minute walk to Duval St. and was vey convenient. The room itself was small, but charming. It was basically like a room in a house rather than a hotel room. No problems with the room at all.... More

We stayed at Authors of Key West as a couple and we had such a great time there! The receptionists are very friendly and helpful, the room was really cute and clean, and we extremely enjoyed having breakfast in the garden. I highly recommend this place!

We left it late to book when we visited Key West for 4th July, and this was one of only a few hotels with availability so we were worried about what it might be like. However, what a lovely surprise! Authors is a welcoming little guest house with a couple of lovely courtyards, one where breakfast is served (buffet continental... More

Hotel limpo, aconchegante e tranquilo. Equipe super simpática e solícita. Café da manhã suficiente. 15 minutos andando pra chegar na Duval St.. Best bed and breakfast I´ve ever stayed in Key West. Calm, quiet, clean...what else you need? You reach Duval St. walking in 15 minutes. Welcoming crew, makes us feel home. Thanks Cathie, Sandy and DeVonna and keep up... More

Clean and quiet, no bugs, friendly staff. We enjoyed our first stay at Key West and the price was reasonable. Though it would have been nice to be a bit closer to Old Town, a 20-min walk wasn't so bad for my friends and me.

We have rented cottages here the last three years. The Guesthouse is very low key and the staff are immediately friendly and helpful. The two resident cats are perhaps not as friendly but for cats they are each quite friendly. They sort of set the tone for relaxation. The kind of guests this place seems to attract are also low...
