“Rooftop Pool with Bar right on Duval can't be beat.”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I recently stayed at this wonderful hotel with a couple of friends for my 40th Birthday. What a great location, price, comfort and amenities couldn't be beat anyway in the Keys! We felt like we had our own private swimming pool on the roof of the hotel with a balcony that overlooked Duval St. I am looking forward to my next stay and have no doubt where which hotel I am going to stay in. The Staff was great and the rooms were cleaned everyday. There was always staff around to fulfill any needs we had, from extra towels to asking directions to the best attractions in town. This is a jewel of a hotel with a cool Art Deco look. Check it out for yourself.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms open right out to the pool and balcony.

We couldn't have said it better ourselves! From the rooftop bar to our friendly staff, you've truly highlighted all of the points that make us who we are. Thank you for taking the time to review us. We can't wait to see you again!

We stayed two nights in June and were happy with the choice. We priced more expensive B&Bs that might have had more Key West charm, but we were there to see the sights and this little hotel is in a great locations to do that... plus they offer parking for $10/night... where many of the B&Bs only have limited parking. Pegasus is right on the corner of Duval and the mid-point allows you to sightsee in any direction. We were able to pay for an additional day of parking so we could leave the car after our check out and enjoy the day without looking for parking. The room was a decent size, good beds, fridge and microwave, but beware that the bathrooms are very small (at least ours was)... my 6'4" guy had problems. Breakfast is adequate and a nice surprise since we didn't know it was included. The only negative is unloading the car to check in on a busy street. All in all, it was a good choice.

Room Tip: We asked for a quite side and got it... facing the pool on the third floor. We could not hear the mu...

We knew when we chose this small, boutique hotel on Duvall Street, rather than a much more expensive hotel or bed and breakfast, that we would probably not have a spacious room, Olympic-size pool or breakfast worth eating. Hey, we weren't disappointed! We only wanted to stay in Key West one night before we checked into a condominium for a week and the Pegasus International Hotel afforded us the opportunity to walk down Duvall, check out the activity in Mallory Square, and feel part of the nightly activity without having to take out a second mortgage just for the privilege. We got what we paid for: a small room, a tiny bathroom, a great location, rowdy neighbors down the hall, and an opportunity for early-morning photos from the rooftop that are worthy to be framed. Worth mentioning: the ladies working the front desk were very friendly and helpful to us. Key West is a unique place--tropical, yet American--and is worth seeing. I'm glad we stayed a night here. But, only one night.

We really enjoyed our stay the first week of July. We spent a lot of time at the pool and enjoyed meeting other guests and our bartender. He was a multi tasker, but all we had to do was call and he was there in a minute. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. You couldn't ask for a better location. The center of everything. Our room was at the corner of southerd and duval so we saw all the action. Having a continental breakfast was a plus because my husband is a early risers. The b&b we stayed at last year didn't offer coffee til 8:30. My husband has already run 2 miles and had several cups of coffee by that time. The coffee was freshly made by 6 am. We will definitely stay again. We will call directly next time instead of booking through the internet. Better deals!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms at the corner of southerd and duval (rm 300). great view of all the action.

Weve been coming to KW for many years and we stay here every time. We've had nothing but good experiences. The staff are always unfailingly polite and the manager often goes the extra mile. KW must be a tough place to recruit and keep staff, so maybe that explains some of the negative comments in other reviews, but we've always been treated very respectfully

Customer service could have been a lot better. The beds we hard if you like that and the location was quiet. The hotel and rooms were clean. The rooftop was really pretty and open and in a great location. The bar did not have liquor because they didn't have the license to serve and do not drink one of their fruity alcohol beverages. YUK.... just stick with the beer. It was very tacky decorations but then again it well with the Key west style. Over all i will not go back to this hotel in the future. There are too many other choices I want to try.

Room Tip: by the rooftop pool was a good area.
