The hotel is cool, location is central South Beach, right on Ocean Drive. Rooms are unique, clean and comfy. Staff were excellent. But, the highlight of the Pelican is Wendell, who mans the front desk and will take better care of you than the concierge at the Four Seasons. He's funny, hard working and kind - - and, despite the Spring Break craziness that we were unaware of before arriving, Wendell made our stay at the Pelican one of the best hotel experiences we could have hoped for.

Pelican Hotel is right across the beach on Ocean Drive. Perfect spot to wake up, have free breakfast, and walk wherever you’d like. The staff were all friendly. 2 complimentary drinks available for happy hour when we stayed. The rooms are a bit different. Not your average hotel room decor. There is not a lot of room to move around and the bathroom was small as well. Being Florida, the room was very humid each time we came back in from the night even though the A/C was on. Overall, the room wasn’t the comfiest but the location, staff, and accommodations made the stay much better!

Prefect Location

This hotel was close to the beach, the nice places you should visit were not too far away and let’s you experience the greatness of South Beach. The hotel is cute and intimate. The only complaint is that the bed was hard as a rock.... But who needs sleep when you are in such a beautiful city 😊 And I would definitely stay here again!

Great location on the strip!

When we arrived, we were greeted by Carlos at the receptionist desk! He was very personable and had a great knowledge of South Beach area along with Key West! He made our experience delightful! Our room was clean and very unique! I thought that our queen size bed was a little hard. My wife didn’t seem to mind! Had a to die for ocean view from our room #302. The staff was very accommodating. Would definitely stay again! The food was great also! The hotel overall had a unique funky type of decor.

Hello Beth, I am sorry to hear that your experience was not what you expected of The Pelican Hotel. Ocean Drive is a very vibrant area. We are smack in the middle of the Art District and although most of our guest give our hotel great reviews, we understand that the area and vibe may not be for everybody. We appreciate your comments and thank you for choosing The Pelican Hotel. Please feel free to reach out to us should you ever have any questions or concerns. Best Regards
