“Expensive and not worth it”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

I thought the location was great- walkable distance to everywhere in Key West. But it was way too expensive (I went during Christmas/New Year). Room was tiny with 2 Queen beds stuffed into it, and didnt have space to even walk around the room. Had to almost climb over the bed to get into the bathroom (which was not very clean). And breakfast was not included. Was expecting much much better for the price.

Thanks for staying with us. Although we're proud to reside in such a fantastic location, our proximity to historic Duval Street leaves us with limited space. We do our best to ensure that all of our guests are comfortable, and we apologize if you were not. We will certainly discuss this with our team as we work to improve, and we hope to have another opportunity to show you a five-star experience next time you're in Key West.

Regards,
Pegasus Management

It wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. Great location and very friendly staff. The breakfast was average but good. Our room was comforable and clean. I think it was worth what we paid. The elevator is kind of slow and I wouldn't recommend the steps, they were too steep/narrow. You do have to park down the street, but you can unload luggage at the front door.

Great location, comfortable bed, nice pool but not a lot else going for this place. For the money I was expecting something great, however it all looks a little tired and dirty, starting with the cracked tiles as we entered the room. The room was superficially clean but not what you'd expect from any hotel. And the alleyway outside leading to our room was filthy. The bathroom door was difficult to close with the handle hanging half off, and getting cases from reception to room was difficult in spite of the lift. Would not stay there again.

Our housekeeping staff works hard to provide a welcoming environment for our guests, but it appears that we have fallen short. We know that we are better than this, and we will discuss your comments with our team to keep instances like this to a minimum. Thank you for letting us know about this. We hope to have another opportunity to wow you during your next trip to Key West.

This is a great place to stay at, very clean, the staff was very helpful, I was her for three days and it made worthwhile after getting home from an awesome time at the beach. I would recommend this hotel for everyone that decides to take a trip out here to Key West.

Room Tip: Get the suite!!

Great place to stay! The hotel is in the middle of where you want to be in Key West! Everything is within walking distance. The hotel is clean and neat and the staff is friendly. We didn't spend too much time in the room. We were out exploring, but we slept well on comfortable beds. I would stay here again.
