“Couldn't be in a better location for Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We booked this hotel because of it's location to Duval Street. Key West is a walking town so....... Location, location, location. Amenities are basic and rooms are average, but when in Key West......how much time do you spend in your room ??? Would recommend to our friends and would stay again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed at this hotel, recently, unfortunately during March Break, which we did not realize when we booked downtown.

We were woken up several times in the night, and early morning, with the noises, screams and yells, coming from students on Duval street, so for us, it was not the right hotel to choose. Although the executive room was clean, it lacked a lot in atmosphere and amenities.

The price of the room was one for a 4 or 5 star room, but without the luxuries.

It would be a great room for students, but not for a retired couple.

We are very sorry to hear of your disappointing experience, Daphne. As you know, Key West is a very popular destination for Spring Breakers, but we can completely understand your frustration. We wish that we had been able to move you to a quieter room during your stay, and we apologize. We do everything we can to make our guests feel at home, so we want to make this right. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you would like to discuss this further.

All the best,

This unique small downtown hotel is in the heart of Key West. It is a friendly and warm place that is very welcoming. The secluded pool side bar is a great place to relax. They should however allow you to charge libations and food to your room. The rooms are well appointed and clean. We did experience a delay in having our room cleaned and had to call the desk to speed up the process. All in all loved the experience and would return.

Glad you felt at home with us! Between our great location and our secluded pool side bar, it sounds like you had a wonderful time here in Key West. Once again, we apologize for the delay in tidying your room, but we're happy that we were able to finish up quickly. Thanks for taking the time to review us, Marc. We hope to welcome you back next time you're in town!

The hotel was located right in the center of all the action. It was also clean, had friendly staff, and was a good price. I would stay here again, and would recommend it to a friend. I also enjoyed the pool and patio area.

I have been to Key West many times in my life, and the Pegasus is by far my favorite place to stay. It is located with-in walking distance to everything. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the price is probably the best value I have seen on the island. The pool is really nice, and the view from the roof top deck is great for people watching. The ease of parking is a plus too. I will definitely be back!
