  • We both liked this place, it was a small room, like many in Key West. It was not real…

    Wonderful little gem 15 minutes walk to Duval. Cooling spa was great in between sightseeing and dinner. Would stay again in a heart beat.

    Clean, beautiful, great location

    Beautiful location with really pretty courtyard. Very clean, friendly service, they even ordered bikes for us upon request and had them brought to us at the hotel. Only downsides: pool isn’t really a pool, it’s a swim spa so it wasn’t cool and refreshing. Also, the water pressure in the shower was pretty weak. Took a long time to rinse shampoo/conditioner out of my hair. Other than that, great location - would definitely recommend!

    Adorable place to stay

    Authors was such a cute place to stay at while in Key West. Quiet street and super clean! We rented bikes so it was a very short ride to Duvall. Staff was friendly. They have water and ice machines on site which made our day because of the heat. Rooms were always cleaned. Only down fall was noise at night from rude guests that don’t follow rules. Usually kids at night making noise but I called the 24 hr service number and they nipped it in the butt ASAP. If you arrived late they have your keys ready for you in an envelope by the back entry gate. Small breakfast in the morning 8:30- 10 am. Bagels, cereal, yogurt.. Service was great and recommend to anyone!
