So I read the reviews and such... so here is my 2 cents worth :) I stayed here one night- needed a reason to get out Orlando.... we Orlando-ites don't get to the beach as much as we should. Anyway, I drove over in the morning and spent it on the beach. About 2 I went over the the Pelican... More

I had guests that visited during my stay and they were so accomodating and provided extra parking spaces as there is only 1 space per room. Was so awesome to walk out of the room and... More

Loved the pelican and the staff! Also very clean they definitely take pride in that we saw then cleaning 1 room and they probably spent all day! Super close to the beach, food, and gift shops! A friend of ours stayed in a different hotel that looked a lot the same and paid at least twice the amount! I would... More

Very cute and cozy, not the hilton but great place to stay. Could use a pool but only 2 blocks to the beach and 2 blocks to the pier. Great value for the money. Centrally located, walked to several stores and ice cream shop.

Heading north from Naples we made a last minute decision to stop here for the night on our way home. We were originally supposed to spend a week in the area but due to family needs we had to cancel. We arrived tired and were not disappointed. The beds were very comfy and the sheets clean and crisp. We were... More

We enjoyed our stay at Pelican Post. The staff was friendly and attentive to our needs. We liked the location (if not directly on the beach.) The room could have been stocked with more items. Not like a hotel where you get soap, shampoo, conditioner in case you left yours at home. We had to ask for a few other... More

I booked my brother, his wife and their young teen for a room for 3 nights at the Pelican Post so they could drive down from Gainesville to visit with our mom, who is elderly and was on the island for a stay in her trailer home nearby. Both my brother (not picky) and my sister-in-law (a bit picky) said... More

When staying in Bradenton Beach the Pelican Post is a great place to stay, is clean, staff is friendly and will assist on anything, one block from town, close to the beach. Don't pass this by, it is a gem.
