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.

Authors was an awesome choice for our one night stay in Key West. The room was very comfortable, clean and reasonably well appointed. The small pool would have been nice had we had time to use it. With only one night, we headed out to Duval Street which was a short 15 minute walk. The only drawback was that we...

We stayed here for 2 nights in December. This bed and breakfast is about a 15 minute walk to Duvall Street. It is located in a very quiet section of town. The room was quiet and immaculate. There was a balcony connected to our room (Truman room) which was very nice. The breakfast each morning was simple (bagel, yogurt, fruit,...

We stayed here in June and absolutely fell in love with this cute guesthouse! Rooms are really nicely decorated, clean and open up to a beautiful garden. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served in the garden and is delicious! Thank you! I can't wait to go back.

My wife and I stayed earlier this year and were very pleased by this unpretentious bed and breakfast. First, the room we were in (Margaret Truman) was cool, quiet and comfortable. The room was a great bargain compared to some of the exorbitant prices in Key West. Because it was gorgeous while we were on the island, and my wife...

Consider this B&B if you want to get away from all the noise of Duvall. Discreetly tucked away on White Street it has a quaint courtyard with spa pool. Rooms are a decent size for two people, the staff is great and oh so friendly!
