Our first experience of Key West, Authors is set in a lovely treet but very walkable to the bustle of Duval street. Our bed was very comfy, and we had a small balcony we could sit out on. As others have said, breakfast is just a few bagels and juices but I didn't really have much of a problem with... More

.....My wife and I have wanted to visit the Keys for many years. This year, we finally did. We stayed for 5 nights in Key West at the Author's Guesthouse. We were extremely pleased with our choice of a place to stay. We stayed in the Audubon room which was spacious, well decorated and clean. My only complaint was not... More

We decided to head to the Key's again after 7 years and after looking at different places to stay in Key West we went right back to Authors and got the same room!! We liked it then and we still like it now!! The library room is perfect for us with plenty of light and yet a nice patio with... More

We stayed two nights at the Authors Guesthouse. The main drag in Key West can be loud and overwhelming. The Authors Guesthouse is within walking distance of the festivities, but far enough off the beaten path to provide the calm and quiet we needed after a long day of sight seeing and shopping. It's clean, comfortable and roomy. The staff... More

Second year of week long stay was as good as the first. Rented Tennessee Williams cottage last year and Hemingway cottage this year. A compact property, very clean, extremely friendly and helpful staff, two nice cats, and a quiet location. Nice breakfast each morning, not a lot of variety after a week, but one adapts. The two cottages are fun,... More

We stayed here last weekend when we were in town for a wedding. We aren't big bed and breakfast people as we enjoy privacy, so the separate bathroom, air, refrigerator, and tv enticed me to book. Many places in Key West I tried to book required a 3 night stay and this one did not. We drove, so I was... More

My husband & I visited Key West to celebrate my 50th birthday. We loved the property, cleanliness & proximity to downtown -- quiet but walking distance to everything. The customer service cannot be beat! We stayed in the Poets room, which was spacious with a very comfortable king bed. We only had two small surprises: we had a coffee maker... More

My son (23) and I returned from a fabulous trip to Key West. The first time for both of us. Found this quaint, clean, reasonably priced gem on Trip Advisor. Wanted something comfortable, but not lavish as I think it is absurd to spent tons of money on lodging when you are going to be out and about. The staff... More

We had a great trip with grown up family to celebrate my 60th birthday and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay in Key West. Property is very pretty and traditional, beds comfy and facilities very good. We all loved it. Most of all the staff (Tippi, Ramsay and others) were so helpful and welcoming which really helped us...
