My daughter and her husband along with my husband stayed at this guest house in Key West Fl. It was just OK. It could have been stocked better with the rate that we paid. I think for the amount of money spent for the night I was expecting more. Not saying that the staff was not friendly, they were. The... More

Have stayed here numerous times over the last few years. Staff is helpful and knowledgeable on the area. Have never had a bad room here and have stayed in several rooms and cottages. Walk to town is enough to help digest some of the great seafood meals that you'll find in Key West, but I guess it would be a... More

I stayed at the Authors Guesthouse while attending the Key West Literary Seminar and workshop. I stayed in Artist 1B. The bed was surprisingly comfortable and I slept well my entire stay. The owners had the good sense to have a stone tile floor rather than carpeting. I was by myself and the room was fine for me. I love... More

We stayed over the New Year Holiday and needed multiple rooms. It was one of the few B & B's left when we made our reservations. We have stayed at various other B & B's over the years, but they were all full. I thought it overpriced for the condition, but it was Holiday prices! 2 of our rooms were... More

The property was well-maintained and the bungalow nice. Wifi with adequate speed for email/surfing, but not for streaming video. The not-truthful part regarded cats on the property. When I called in April to inquire about the property, I asked if there were cats on the property. My wife is deathly allergic to cats. Having been to Key West before, I... More

Could'nt sleep at all. 2) Room is no where as good as it seems in the photo's. Its too small and it smells.(Not smoke smell but some old room stink). 3) Sink in the... More

Stayed 2 nights for our visit to Key West. It was about a 15 minutes walk north of the centre of the city, and therefore a more economic option than some of the big hotels. it is a small (12 rooms), attractive guesthouse, and the staff running it are very helpful and friendly. All the rooms have a degree of... More

My wife and I have just spent two nights in The Artist Room at Authors Guest House following an Atlantic Cruise. Neither is us had visited The Keys before and had no idea what the area or Guest House would be like. The Guest House is located about 20 minutes walk from the Duval St area but as this is... More

My husband and I stayed for 7 days in November. Small, cozy and very friendly staff. The continental breakfast became tiresome as we were there for 7 days. Fresh oranges and bananas, pre packaged bagels, cream cheese, peanut butter, coffee and tea. The walk to town was comfortable and takes about 20 minutes. The beds are foam and very comfortable....

Sandy at the property is wonderful. Away from Duval. Quiet and clean. Biked or walked everywhere from there. Unfortunately two different restaurants we wanted to try were closed on the weekend. Of course this was not the property's fault!
