Very good and may be the best value in the keys. Room is clean and the location is not bad in the keys. The actual room looks better than the picture on list. Keep this value and get a better photographer.The front desk is very nice!

My husband, another couple, and I stayed at the Motel on Saturday, March 29th. It was very clean, and nicely decorated. The pool area with bathrooms, and the little tiki huts out on the water were very nice, even though our stay was brief, and we did not have a chance to use them. The employees were great about answering... More

I was very impressed with the Pelican RV Resort and Motel!! It was very clean and a great price! The front desk is so helpful and so nice! They helped me with a late check-in and have very strong yummy coffee in the lobby in the morning (hard to find in Marathon) I recommend Pelican RV Resort and Motel 100%!

The staff was very knowledgable on activities and events in the surrounding areas. They gave me a very personable stay, making me feel at home and welcome my entire stay. The atmosphere of the area is very family friendly, which I appreciate when traveling with children. I plan on staying here on every visit to the keys.

I came to the keys with my three grandchildren, we were very pleased with everything The room with the kitchen was great and very clean. The staff was so friendly and the pool was clean and open late, I am happy to say I will be a Pelican fan for life. Just a relaxing enjoyable time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Carefree’s Pelican Motel was recently remodeled to bring back those retro open-air motel days, but with all the modern amenities we have grown to love. You can pull up right to the door of your private room, conveniently unload your luggage and be sitting on our beautiful shore in less than five minutes.While our look is vintage, our six rooms and three efficiencies are all new. Each room is equipped with an individually controlled air-conditioner, ceiling fan, refrigerator and microwave for your comfort and convenience.Tucked into the picturesque Florida Bay on Grassy Key at Mile Marker 59, just 45 minutes east of Key West, the Pelican is one of a few Marathon Florida Hotels that gives you access to 300 feet of secluded waterfront and a private marina. Our boat slips are just waiting for your vessel, and we’ve got a fish cleaning station ready for you to handle your saltwater catch of the day.When you’re through with your day on the water, jump in by swimming off our bay front or take a dip in our heated swimming pool. Relax, you're in the Florida Keys! ... more   less
