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...

My husband and I stayed in this B&B on our first visit to Key West. We were in the "Library" room on the first floor. The room is cozy, clean, and comfortable. Author's has lush green foliage on the grounds with a decent size, clean hot tub for guests use. The rooms each face different directions so there is sufficient... More

My wife and I stayed at the Authors Guest House in February, 2015. We were greeted by Davina (sp?) who was very helpful with information on local activities and attractions. Parking was a breeze and never had trouble getting a spot close to the Inn. The room was small but very comfortable, AC was perfect and bed was super comfortable.... More

We were able to stay at Authors which is in walking distance to Duval street. The rates are more than reasonable, they are an excellent deal for the accomodations! We checked in late and they had the keys waiting there for us. A hot tub to relax in. Chillled water and ice nearby! We didn't stay for the breakfast. It... More

Rooms comfortable, clean and quaint. Very noisy and bright from outside lights at night. The breakfast was mediocre with container yogurt and packaged bagels. Wifi was sporadic and TV did not work in spite of several repair attempts. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. The rates are reasonable for the area. There isn't any laundry facility or hair dryers.... More

Key West had odd weather it was cold and windy. We were stuck on the Island. This Guesthouse, made sure we were warm. They gave us a heater to use extra blankets. Simply wonderful! The hot tub on a cold evening made everything better after a long cold day! Thank you!

This was our third stay at Authors and it was great as usual. The property is lovely with beautiful trees, garden patio, decks and a warm pool. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Yes it is older but that adds to the charm. Continental breakfast is included and served in the garden patio everyday. Wifi worked well... More

This adorable little place is very welcoming and cheerful. Cute, shabby chic decor fit in nicely with the beach atmosphere. The beds were comfy. The shower pressure was a little weak, but it got the job done. We discovered that running a shower was better during "off" hours (not between 8am-11am) because the water was hotter at other times of... More
