Great stay
Reviewed 4 days ago

The hotel was exactly what we needed,the room at first sight was very small but it was OK very clean bedding changed half way through our week stay.
The cleaning ladies were great serviced rooms every day .I got an iron off reception so that was good.
The reception staff were so helpful explaining what was around the area.
All in all it was great

Great time at the Pelican!

I stayed at the Pelican with my cousin for 2 nights in June. Honestly I was very pleasantly surprised! I booked this hotel through a 3rd party website not knowing the name of the hotel I was booking (to get a cheaper price) so I was worried about getting a low quality hotel. NOT THE CASE! The Pelican Hotel is right on Ocean Drive (across the street from the ocean). They include breakfast (bacon and eggs style, not just dry toast and muffins) and include 2 free drinks per person every happy hour. I felt spoiled! No pool but you really don't need one since you're across the street from the ocean. Everyone is super nice and friendly (shout-out to Wendell for making us feel extra special!!). Every room has a different theme so I would be excited to come back again and see what another room looks like. I definitely recommend this place!

Lovely quirky hotel in best location

This hotel is right on the beach front in the heart of South Beach. Our room was really quirky, clean, comfortable with an amazing shower. We were on the side of the hotel which meant no view but it was quiet. The included breakfast was good. Staff were great (except the bar tenders for some reason). We loved it here and would love to stay again.

Great Value and View

So, if you're looking for a state of the art hotel...this is NOT it. However, The Pelican was everything I needed for my vacation.

Customer Service: No issues. In fact, they were amazingly accommodating for our early arrival.

Accommodations: So, the rooms are "themed". Listen...again, THEY ARE NOT FANCY. But, they are clean and well-kept by housekeeping. Get ocean view if you can AND if you don't mind the excitement of Ocean Drive. The toiletries were of a good quality and plentiful. Both flat and sparkling bottled water are provided daily in a mini-fridge. (There is no microwave or coffee maker)

Food/Drink: The daily breakfast included is MORE than adequate. Everything was tasty and our servers were always friendly. DO THE HAPPY HOUR, for the love of God. The bartender was super attentive and the drinks were good. I ate lunch there, and it's not great food, but it'll curb your appetite.

Location: Is everything in South Beach. This place is right in the middle of everything. You won't be disappointed if you're looking to party. If you're trying to relax...go elsewhere or ask for a room away from the main street. *shrug*

Lastly, read the damn policies , people. They are very clear about service animals...check out / in times, etc...

Fun Restaurant.

Running the gauntlet of hawkers vying for your business is very Miami Beach. Don't be turned off by it, just keep moving until you find one you like. We vacation in Miami Beach every year and Pelican is one we would strongly recommend. The service is better than most on Ocean, the drinks are better and the food is good. Definitely worth a visit!
