Super cute & felt like Key West!!

I loved my stay at Authors!! The front person ,( the owner perhaps) was super friendly and sweet. The guest house only has 6 units and was super quite. My room, the Hellman, was perfect for a single person or a couple. The bed was way to soft and probably my only complaint. I also wish the breakfast was served earlier because I’d already be gone for the day before it was put out. All in all loved my stay and the place. Would highly recommend!!

Walking distance

The bed and breakfast was located in a perfect spot for walking to most areas. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. The bed in our room was close to needing to be replaced as it gave a little in the middle. The breakfast was just enough to get your day started, bagels, yogurt, bananas and oranges. Definitely would recommend and stay again.

Stayed in the library room. really can't wait to go back, staff was very friendly .the only thing was the bed was a little hard very firm . when i return i would bring a foam pad but that is a personal choice.

Our stay at The Authors of Key West

Pros: We felt tucked away at The Authors. Our room was cozy & quiet.
Cons: It would have been nice if we could have turned the jets on in the pool between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m.
Location: The location of The Authors was great. We rented bicycles and rode all around key west. We visited the Hemingway House and also took a sunset cruise
We enjoyed our stay at The Authors very much. Our room was cozy, quiet and clean. The breakfast was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. We rented bicycles and they were delivered to our room within 20 minutes. Everything was wonderful!

A perfect location with local flavor in Key West!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
The Authors of Key West has a beautiful private courtyard and a heated pool and Jacuzzi. They also offer free WiFi in the courtyard you may or may not be able to access it from your room depending on where you are. There is plenty of free on street parking and you are a short walk to Mallory Square and the Sunset Celebrations there. The innkeeper is very friendly and will mark up a local map for you with various locations based on your interests. Be advised there is a multiple year road construction project in Key West and right now North Roosevelt Boulevard is one way traveling south only. That makes Authors of Key West a very advantageous location as you can easily get to the harbor area, Mallory Square, Duval Street, the beautiful Higgs Beach, the Southernmost Point, great restaurants and more all without having to travel back to the more northern parts of Key West.

Very nice and pleasant bed and breakfast cottage

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We were very pleased with our welcome and check in. The person checking us in was very nice and gave us lots of helpful information about the area. Our stay was very comfortable and in a nice residential area. Breakfast was served outside on the patio area and was sufficient for our needs. The only dissappointment was that there was no hair dryer in the room and at the time we were checking out (early the next day), there was nobody in the office to see about getting one. Other than that (bring your hair dryer), I would definately reccomend this bungalo.

Nice place! Quaint and cozy.

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Nice and clean. The staff is extremely friendly and take good care of their customers. The breakfast was good for what it was and the "pool" was nice (although it could have been warmer).
