This hidden gem will shock you. Quiet local, boat ramp, free kayak, and comfortable spacious rooms. Right off of US-1 so you can quickly get to your next destination. Great place to stay, they have a repeat customer for sure. Staff was super friendly and helped with directions.

The day we arrived we were given a tiny room which had water on the floor in front of the fridge. The receptionist told us that he would get it dried. We came back from lunch the whole floor was wet , i almost skidded in and out of the bathroom and water in the room kept getting worse. Finally,... More

We had our wedding here in March, 2014 and nearly all of our guests stayed here. All in all, it was a wonderful experience! The prices are unbeatable and not only did they not charge us to use their beautiful beach for our ceremony, they gave all of our guests a 20% discount on their rooms when we reserved the... More

The Pelican is in a fantastic spot, with an excellent view for sunsets. It's fairly priced compared to most places around. The rooms have small refrigerators and microwaves, which were great to have. Breakfast was convenient and simple with pastries, fruit and toast. Richard was very pleasant, hospitable and approachable, unlike Ossy, who was a jerk. Richard came to our... More

I have stayed here a few times over the past few years. This time I thought it was pricey for what you get. When we checked in the room had a very overpowering sweet smell, like a room freshener. But the smell was so strong it was irritating. I was aware of the smell most of the night because I... More

Always go back to the same place, love it so much! The room we always rent is the one near to the water and the tiki, we are customers since 2005 and returned every year since then, they serve breakfast every morning, the sunset is incredible, is well located near groceries, liquor and pharmacy. The staff is great. The house... More

We stayed here 2 nights while diving with Key Largo Dive. There were 12 of us so we had 6 rooms. Some rooms were really small with barely two beds in them while others, like ours had plenty of space with a couch and even a kitchen. We were the lucky pair! Real nice that they have a continental breakfast... More

I am not the kind of person who likes to give a bad review, but I have to be honest. This place was a little disappointing. I don't mind an older cottage style hotel. In fact this place would have been acceptable if the bed were comfortable. The room was small but fairly clean, the cottages out-dated, the water pressure... More

We are very disappointed with the outcome of your stay and work very hard to keep our guests happy. Obviously in your case we failed. But we do not have this complaint logged in our guest issues log nor do we have a comment card on file. We do keep an up to date log of our mattress inventory and... More

We booked this place via a recommendation from a local dive centre and found it a great place to stay if you want a quiet break. The rooms are cleaned every day and were fine. We were able to park outside our room which was a short walk to the breakfast area. Kayaks are also available to borrow free of... More

We only stayed one night at the Pelican but it is the kind of place you could stay for a week or more. There are individual Old Florida style cottages and communal space outside for lounging. They also have their own boat ramp. The Pelican is not fancy but is clean and comfortable and reasonably priced. I would definitely stay... More
