Reasonably priced, very clean, attractively decorated..Great location: just around the corner from Bridge Street and Bradenton Pier, a few steps further cross Gulf Drive and you are on the beach. Round the corner and over the bridge, you are hanging out on a fishing pier in Cortez eating fresh caught grouper. No need to get in your car..walk, bicycle, or... More

It is old Florida style with a nice yard area that does include Bar-B-Que grills and chairs to sit under the trees. Only... More

This is a nicely refinished older motel that's family owned. There's no pool there's no noise of children in the pool and it's a great place for people who want a quiet place to relax. Its not on the beach but the beach is less than a 5 minute walk away as is the pier on the bay side .... More

Our stays at the Pelican Post Motel have never disappointed. Always clean and accommodating. Perfectly situated within walking distance of Bridge Street and all its attractions, the beach and the bay. Perfect reflection of old Florida. We love it.

Great location , and steps to the beach, and to the main area for food and drink. Very quiet, and very clean spacious rooms, fully equipped. Nice comfy bed. I recommend this hotel for those looking for a beach holiday in a non corporate hotel. Beach towels / push bikes available at no cost too.

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

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
