The pelican hotel was a great choice . The staff is beyond amazing . Always made sure we were okay . The breakfast was good . The two free drinks during happy hour was a big plus as well . The pelican is in the middle of all the action . I would stay again .

Stayed in Room 303 and it had a beautiful Ocean Dr. View. Being a guest there you get 2 complementary drinks a day and 20% off their restaurant. Room service cleaned 2x a day. Very Clean hotel. The bed is firm but that was okay. And they rent you beach towels for free. Would recommend and stay again!! Oh by the way Jesus was great at the desk! :)

I have never reviewed a hotel before because I'm extra lazy but I HAD to review this hotel. My husband and I went for our 1st year wedding anniversary and it was phenomenal! First of all, we tried drinks at 4 other restaurants during our stay and the restaurant at the Pelican had the best drinks! You get two free drinks during happy per guest and that was wonderful! All the amenities were convenient, breakfast (from the restaurant and NOT continental) was fabulous, the beach was across the street, you can walk everywhere, hotel management and staff were extremely attentive. I can't say enough great things about this hotel! I did a lot of research on the area and hotels before I went and I'm glad I made this choice.

A Hotel that Really Cares

Posted Jun 29, 2016
Pros: The hotel staff was incredible. Treated us like family. The complimentary breakfast each morning and happy hour each afternoon were added bonuses.
Cons: Honestly, not one complaint. Again, the staff made us feel right at home and went out of their way to make our stay fun and hassle free.
Location: The Pelican is located on Ocean Drive right across from the beach. We walked everywhere (except to Marlins Park). So much to see and do.
Awesome four-day vacation at South Beach, FL. First time visit for my wife and I. The Pelican was right in the middle of "all the action"... easy access to the beach, close to dining and shopping, and only about 15 minutes from Marlins Park. Across the board, The Pelican exceeded our expectations and made our stay a wonderful experience. We can't wait to return again!

Central but not maintained

Posted Jun 23, 2016
The hotel is in a great location and the staff are really nice (accept they stole a bottle of gin I had with my luggage at check in). The problem is that the rooms are not well maintained. The TV and phone do not work in room 312. The internet system is horrible - it also does not work properly. MAYBE this is a 3 star hotel in a 5 star location.

Overall good experience. The hotel rooms were rather run down; however, the hotel offered great amenities (free breakfast, free happy hour drinks, free beach lounge chairs, etc).
