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!

My husband and I, my sister and a friend stayed here 2 nights early October. There are no bad rooms. We had two rooms opening to the pool which was small; more like a cement spa for 10 people with jets you can turn on for 15 minutes at a time. They let the sun heat it which works out... More

A small cosy place with super friendly staff who help you with everything. Good simple breakfast, cozy small pool and perfect that you can park outside, for free. It tackes about 20 minutes to walk to "the town ". Will stay here again!

My boyfriend and I spent four nights at Authors after reading some reviews online. Overall, it was a great place to stay for the price! Much less expensive than similar hotels/guesthouses on the island, but that's probably due to it being a little off the beaten path from the more popular areas (Duval, Mallory Square, etc.) Still, it was only...

Perfect hotel in Key West, I spent only one night here and loved every minute of my stay. I received a very warm welcome from Sandy, one of the nicest person in the Keys is not the nicest person in town, the check in process was quick and easy. My room (Poet Room) was on the ground floor and looked... More

It's unfair to compare but Authors could do with a little updating. Rooms were basic and functional, but being on the ground floor ours felt well lived in. We didn't get to use the pool area as the hotel was quiet busy so the privacy we would normally like was not possible. The morning breakfast buffet of bagels and coffee... More
