“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

The Pegasus Hotel has an excellent location with great bars and restaurants a few minutes away.

The family room we stayed in was very spacious and clean. Also the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I will certainly be returning to this hotel!

I wasn't expecting a resort, I realize that you get what you pay for, but calling this place a dump would be an understatement. Read previous reviews and thought we were getting a reasonable place to stay. Instead we pull up and try to figure out where all of the photos were taken from and when because they didn't line up with what we were seeing. We even tried to leave and were all but bullied into staying or paying for the entire trip and since they had our credit card number there really wasn't anything we could do according to management.

The room had an old bed with a plastic covered comforter. The entry door sat cockeyed in the door frame with a huge gap at the top of the door. The bathroom door didn't close at all because it didn't fit in the frame. I will say it had a nice vanity but other than that it was the kind of room that you would only want to spend time in with your eyes closed.

The room also wasn't very secure seeing how it only used a basic house key that could be duplicated, and went into a door knob that was barely hanging on. The room felt so unsecure that I kept the majority of my belongings locked in the trunk of my car.

Not sure where all the positive reviews came from unless management is out there paying people to lie. Please beware.

We were very disappointed to read that our hotel did not meet your expectations. Each year we make a significant investment into the hotel directed towards what we consider to be the priorities at any given time. Some of this investment is obvious to our guests and others are not. we are committed to continuing to invest into the hotel to meet the needs of all our guests. Having said that, your comments relative to your particular situation are very valuable. We appreciate your candid comments as these observations can only help us to improve our performance and our property.

The hotel is outdated and has a very dirty feel to it. The ceiling in the room had several cobwebs hanging over the bed. The door to the room has a locking mechanism similar to most bathrooms and I was very concerned about the safety of my belongings inside when I left. The door to the room had a large gap at the top and bottom of the door and the bathroom door wouldn't shut all the way.

The hotel does have a nice roof top deck and nice towels in the bathroom. Those are the only good things that I can say about it.

Dear guest; We're sorry you felt that way about our establishment. Our hotel is older and fortunately for you there are newer hotels in key west. we could suggest a few for example the westin resort on front street. We do our best to keep our facilities impeccably clean. If there was an issue with your room you should have complained we would have have refunded you your complete stay, no questions asked, that's how much we value our customer' honest reviews.
