Great place to stay in the middle of the Keys. Staff, especially Nancee is great and very helpful. Room was very nice (floors need to be mopped daily) and the pier and gazebo are great for fishing (if you fish) and sunset watching. For people fishing, I have friends who fish there and have told me about sharks grabbing the... More

This place was cheap, so we booked it. The site we booked through said it was pet friendly. Far from it. Only one single room is dog friendly. We got charged for our dog. $150. Fine, whatever we paid it. But reading the rules, they charge for everything. I mean I know their fees are cheap, but thats because they... More

Dear Guest, Due to our small size (only 9) rooms we can not allow for all rooms to be "Pet Friendly". We have designated specific rooms to be used by pet guest that are more easily accessible to grassy areas and have higher sound control. We do this so that pets are not disturbing to other guest. As for your... More

Stayed one night at the Pelican after a day at the Dolphin Research Center. Booked online for a mere $75. For that price, I was not expecting much! Nancy at the front desk was a peach! Extremely friendly and helpful! Room was beautiful. Two double beds, fridge, microwave and a nice A/C that blew cold air!!! Definitely exceeded my expectations!... More

We stayed at the Pelican RV park and had an absolutely WONDERFUL time. The staff was extremely friendly, our rooms were clean and the pool was great! We are thinking of a spur-of-the-moment trip back there this holiday weekend, so I'm hoping they still have a room left! Great location. I have already recommended this place to my friends!

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
