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...

First trip to Key West. Was recommended and really enjoyed. Welcoming staff, lovely rooms, great breakfast. Easy walking to explore downtown Key West. Lovely deck outside rooms for morning coffee and evening gatherings. Quiet neighborhood

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!
