There was painting going on during our visit. The doors and windows were taped over with paper three out of the four days we were there, blocking our view. Also, the generator used to pump out the paint were very noisy. Couldn't sit on the balcony during the day because of it. Also, on the last night we were there... More

Dear LaGrangeLassie, Thank you so much for letting me know about this unacceptable situation. I can assure you that this musician will not be at the Ocean2000 Lounge any longer. We have a family resort and this type of behavior will never be acceptable. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate you bring this to our attention and please... More

Stayed at the Pelican for a couple of nights in December 2012. Valet, front desk and lounge staff were excellent. Breakfast in the restaurant on a Saturday morning was not a pleasant experience. There were four tables occupied at 8am. The staff was slow, and treated each customer as though they were a bother. When I asked for a to... More

It is a beautiful place to stay with excellent accomodations. Although a short stay, I have to give 2-tumbs up to Kevin who went above & beyond his duties to ensure I was well taken care of. He never made me feel like he was too busy (although a lot of times he was!) Stellar staff & a wonderful over... More

Pro's: Room's clean, nicely decorated. Ice Cream shop nice Con's: Beach is tiny and dirty, if the hotel staff cleaned the debris off of the beach in the morning it would make a tremendous difference. NO WiFi or Cell coverage in our room. Restaurant over priced. Parking ugghh! Very expensive, and because we had to come and go a lot... More

Dear ithacamomof2, Thank you so much for letting us know about your stay with us and how disappointed you were. I do apologize for the condition of the beach.

The hotel is located in a great spot just past a very busy strip on the same side of the road as the ocean. Most hotels are across the street and you must walk across a bustling road to get to the beach. The Pelican did not maintain the beach area in front of the hotel as it should be... More

Dear lands1, Please accept my apologies for less than a perfect stay. I am a little confused about your comment about not having access to your room during a wedding in the lobby.

. What was supposed to be a fun filled and relaxing trip for our anniversary, was less that relaxing and lacking at times. Let start with the valet parking, the general manager will say that $28.00 a day is reasonable for parking given the location, well being that there isn't much around the property, I’m not too sure what he's...

If you want to have a pleasant beach experience do not go here. The hotel is smoke free but people are allowed to smoke on the beach...and it is like sitting in an ashtray. Choke. The beds are uncomfortable ...hard foam mattresses. All this for very high prices... what a terrible disappointment.

Dear cohenprof, Please accept our apology for your experience on the beach with smoking. While the hotel property is non-smoking all Florida beaches are public and unfortunately we have no control over this area. I am surprised to read your comments on the bedding as we get many compliments on our mattresses and quality of sleep in the rooms. I... More
