We stayed here for 4 nights. All the rooms have names. We had a small room called the Banana which we absolutely loved. It had everyting you could want - fridge, microwave and TV. The room was clean with a very comfy bed. The bathroom was well kept and very clean. Out the front of the room was a table... More

Maybe not top of the range but the time we had at the Pelican can only be marked as top rate. The accommodation was reasonably priced, clean and comfortable and I would go back despite the little hiccup of water overflowing as it was dealt with immediately or at least it felt that way as we spend the hour or...

Unfortunately some of the reviews you see on here are a bit off. We have stayed here a few times now and I can't say enough about the staff or the hotel itself. This is not a 5 star modern hotel, it doesn't bill itself as one. What it is, a clean nice place to stay in the keys. It... More

We had explored reviews and had chosen this place to stay based on so many positive reviews. What a disappointment to arrive and find a property of old, run-down cabins. When we walked into our room, there was a distrinct, unpleasant odor. The furniture was extremely old, outdated, and worn. The window wouldn't close, the sliding door wouldn't latch or... More

The Pelican consists of a narrow waterfront lot between highway 1 and the water with a westerly exposure. On it are 6 buildings with 23 rental units in them They are cabin type buildings which with good maintenance and a decorator's eye could be charming. The waterfront consists of two long docks with a boat ramp between. There is some... More

Old Florida. Rooms small, but clean. Housekeeping had to be tracked down to get fresh towels, soap etc. No coffee in room, instant coffee, no fresh fruit at breakfast. On the plus side: The dock area was great for kicking back, sunning, reading etc. Didn't try the kayaks. Wouldn't recommend for swimming. 'Beach' is a gravel boat landing. Overall, would... More

We had a great vacation! Perfect location, very quiet and low key. We stayed at the Roseate with four adults and two kids and were very comfortable. Great perk to be able to borrow kayaks to explore the bay. We will definitely return!

Last minute booking, we called and drove right in. The price was a little more for off season but worth it with our full kitchen and A/C in the splendid humid heat. We didn't really cook but having a large fridge was greAt for leftovers, water and cocktail fixings. Bathroom was tiny but the large 2 other rooms made up... More

The size of this 8x10 room was not a problem for our overnight stay. My shower was warm for the first two minutes - then cold. The full size bed had a gully in the center and was hard. It was hard to get comfortable and sleep. The bed, box spring and frame should all be replaced. The 7:30 breakfast... More
