Quaint but a bit uncomfortable
The house is very quaint but it was a bit uncomfortable because there were no outlets in the bathroom or in the bedroom near a mirror so it was difficult to get ready for a special event we had in the Keys. Also, the breakfast was a very simple continental breakfast but that was not specified in the description; we were expecting a bit more for breakfast. Overall it was a quaint place to stay at.

Very Good8.0
Only complaint was we couldn't get a decent flow of water out of bathroom sink. Made complaint on first day, not repaired during out two night stay.

Excellent stay and highly recommended
I would highly recommend Authors of Key West hotel. Our room went way over what I expected, with plenty of room and everything I could possibly need.

Bungalows with character but lacking
Authors of Key West is very old bungalow type units that have character. It was very quiet and peaceful. The queen bed was a bit small for us as was the shower. Reading was difficult at night with only a lamp on one side of the bed. The window air conditioner ran 24/7 and was quite noisy making it difficult to sleep peacefully. Overall, it was very pricey for what was included.

Room was very small and moldy..... Bed hard. Pillows flat with a mildew smell. Breakfast was dull and unappetizing. Old wall AC unit very loud. At 200+ a night. It was not worth it.
