We were in Key West for 5 nights, have tried all areas of the island...hotels by airport, b & b's, first stay at Pegasus. Will look no further in the future. It is right in the middle of Duval, rooftop pool is enough to cool off, jacuzzi is just right for the poolside bar in the evening. Bed was very... More

Good - located right on Duvall St, hotel parking one block away, friendly staff, decent continental buffet included, big rooms with fridge, clean bathroom with big shower, great roof terrace with bar and swimming pool. Bad - the bedspreads!!! Straight out of the 80's I'm sure. So basically this is a great hotel, great price, great location. Don't listen to... More

Thanks for staying with us, Nicky! We're so glad that you enjoyed your time with us, even if you were a bit confused by our bedspreads. We always thought they gave a beach-y feel to our rooms, but we'll definitely keep your thoughts in mind as we move forward. :) That said, we'd love to welcome you back again soon!... More

Fairly bland, functional hotel, reasonable room size with comfortable bed although small bathroom with shower stall only. Right on the corner of Duval Street which is THE rowdy street in Key West so expect some noise. Basic continental breakfast included in room rate taken in the smallest, cramped breakfast area ever. Hotel does have a nice compact pool area with... More

Location is great if you want to be where the action is. However, the beds are so horrible that I would never recommend staying here. I can't imagine how old or cheap the mattresses must be. Worse than a sofa bed. To be fair, staff was very nice, but really, really bad beds.

Yes, our location can't be beat! However, we're surprised to hear that you found your bed to be this uncomfortable. That's not a complaint that we receive often, so we will be happy to look into this further. That said, we would have been happy to move you to a different room—don't hesitate to ask! Still, we are glad that... More

What we liked: Location is simply perfect, close to everything important (Duval street - the most busy street in the town, Zachary fort - the most beautiful beach, sunset square, shops, restaurants etc.). Room was small, but nice and clean. Parking was for 10 USD per night, wifi was for free (good connection). What we didn´t like: We couldn´t open... More

Thank you for leaving such kind words, and for sharing your thoughts about our breakfast—we'll see what we can do to introduce a bit more variety. Once again, thank you for the fabulous... More

We had a really good time with the Pegasus as our home base. The owners really are vested into keeping this place up. We had a great time at the bar; Gary took care of our every need when we stopped by the bar. We hung out at the hot tub a couple of nights - they cleaned the pool... More

The hotel offers a good value for money with great location and comfy, clean rooms. The staff was very helpful and parking on hotel's lot was reasonably priced. Complimentary breakfast was scarce as usually, but was enough to start the day for me. The rooftop pool area is an outstanding place to enjoy the hot Florida sun. I would recommend... More

These people don't hesitate to double book the rooms and cancel your reservation right before your trip, if they find better deals for their rooms. They don't care that you have made in advance planning based on your hotel reservation and it would be too late to find a substitute, specially during high season. It would be harder specifically you... More
