We stayed for 5 nights in late May. We rented the kitchenette room and it was perfect for my family and 2 dogs. This is a very simple place, but that's the beauty of it! The residents are friendly. I fished by the Gazebo every morning (mangrove snapper) and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. The front desk worker (Judy) was really... More

We only had dealings with two staff but both of them were very friendly and nothing seemed like too much trouble. There is adequate... More

I celebrated my third marriage anniversary with my wife and chose this hotel to spend a weekend. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The room is very clean and organized. I do recommend if you plan to spend a few days in the area and want to have a great time :)

We visited he keys for 6 days and 5 nights in our motorhome and ended up staying 5 different RV resorts. One evening we found the Pelican is clean, rustic, 'old Florida' design, clean pool, boat docks, gazabo on the water where we watched the sunset. To use the cable TV, we were told we needed to purchase a Comcast... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with us on your recent visit to the Florida Keys! I am sorry that you had issues with the cable. The cable boxes are free, but you do have to get them directly from Comcast which can be a pain. Again, sorry for that issue and we hope to see you again in the... More

Booked to stay here for 2 weeks with our 32ft Fifth Wheel, and on arrival at our designated pitch, had we not paid the balance for our stay, we would probably have just headed straight out again. There was absolutely no way to reverse into the space without help and cars, trucks, tables etc having to be moved. Fortunately for... More

This motel is such a gem. The rooms are spacious, two double beds with a large tv, fridge and microwave. The bathroom is fine with a large shower and lovely hot water. The only thing I think it's missing is a kettle. We parked right outside our door and the staff were so friendly. We drove to all the attractions... More
