Authors Key West Guesthouse was referred to me by Kate at Key West Visitors Center 305.296.8883. It was my first visit to Key West and I was looking for something near the downtown area. I am so happy that I took Kate's advice. This cute, very clean B&B took me back in time. Each room is named after an author....

Cute, quiet, nice rooms, great service! Barby at the front desk was extremely knowledgeable about the area, and so helpful with setting up bike rentals, etc. Nice hot tub for the cool evenings, and continental breakfast to start off the day. Two cute kitties who live there, too!

This was our first visit to Key West and we stayed two nights. Barb, the front desk person, was wonderful to work with. I accidentally made two reservations and she took care of it. She also took the time to orient us to the area and give recommendations on local activities. We couldn't be happier with the friendly service. The...

This is a steady and well run B&B. It is very clean and out of the crazy Duval Street zone. We have stayed here three times over the past four years and find it very restful. The forks who run it couldn't be more helpful with lots of good tips and suggestions. We'll be back on our next visit to...

Authors is located in a residential section of Key West. After finding this gem few years ago I have returned several times including an upcoming March 2017 stay. A short walk (slightly shorter if you cut through the cemetery when it's open) will put you in the heart of the action on Duval Street. The structure is old Key West...

This was my 4th time staying at Authors Guesthouse -- I truly enjoy the laid-back vibe and the extremely helpful and friendly staff. The place is clean, quiet, charming and convenient. Highly recommend if you are into really getting the feel of the island and saving a little money. The heated pool is great!

This was our fourth stay at Authors and we will keep returning until we have probably stayed in every room. The room this time was the Library and so far it's our favorite but you cannot go wrong with any of the unique rooms at Authors. And if you have need any assistance with things to do around Key West...

We were here for 2 nights in 12/16 and stayed in the room called the Library. Authors is behind a fence, our room was on the corner of 2 streets. Unlike other reviews, this room was not quiet.The traffic on White Street is quite heavy for a residential area.Especially, the motor bikes zipping by at all hours. AC unit was...

Authors is at the intersection of White and Petronia on the north side of Old Town, Key West. From here, it is an easy stroll to (and through) the historic Key West Cemetery, and about a 15-min walk (or longer if you're meandering) to the kinds of sites that people come to Key West for: Duval Street (bars, restaurants, souvenirs,...

This was not our first stay, nor will it be our last stay here. The room was perfect, the spa was perfect, the pool on the sister property was perfect. quiet, clean, and accommodating. The staff was friendly and helpful. Located strategically in the old town to walk anywhere. Our favorite place; our only place to stay.
