I’ve stayed here 2x and there is a moldy odor in the hallway and room on the .2nd floor. As long the room could use a deep cleaning.

Did not receive a warm welcome. Upon check in i was aware our room wouldn’t be ready yet however we left our bags at the front desk along with a phone number to be contacted when room would be ready. Nobody ever called, nobody ever explained the free breakfast, free drinks, WiFi password etc... I had to ask about everything myself which was a huge slap in the face considering I saw these things being addressed to other guest being checked in prior to us. It seemed like they were more happy going over these things with people who appeared to be Latino

Dear Customer we truly regret your experience however know that we welcome all travelers alike from all parts of the world. Sometimes, customers are in a rush to receive their keys and as such rush the front desk when they are reviewing the features. This is why we post the amenities in a permanent black board inside the elevator and also on your welcome letter. I apologize that we failed to make you feel welcomed especially if we promised to call you. I do hope you will give us the opportunity of a second chance.

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!
