Good price. Centrally located. No privacy. The rooms are a little hear through. Enjoyed the ease of going anywhere as it is easily within walking distance to everything. Just not a big fan of how outdated everything was. Old very loud fan in the room, thin doors/walls.

Pelican Hotel was the best choice i could've picked! They make you feel right at home. Each of the rooms are a different theme and it was so nice. I strongly recomned staying here. Happy hour everyday is from 4-6 and you get two free drinks, the bartender was the best!

Don't forget the breakfast, which is relatively good (for spoiled Europeans), the excellent guest Happy Hour, great sit on the board walk, just across the beach were you can get complimentary beach towels and beach chairs. And, as Miami Beach... More

Pelican is a boutique hotel so I expected it to be small. The bed was too hard. Its noisey but thats expected because its on the strip. Decent stay, but I doubt I'll be back. There are tons of other hotels in South Beach to chose from. Go elsewhere.

We are a couple who stayed for 4 days. Room was kind of small, but room services was great and came twice a day sometimes to replenish towels and make beds. Location is great, the hotel has chairs on the beach for you and gives you beach towels to use. Breakfast was decent, happy hour drinks were good and staff... More

We loved our stay here. Had some problems with aircondition (our mistake) but it was explained to us right away. Very friendly staff. This hotel is right on the beach, and you can get towels at the lobby. The rooms are individual and are very cool. Would definately stay here again.

These notes are based on our stay in Feb '15. This is my 2nd time staying at the Pelican and both experiences were positive. The hotel (overall) is very clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating.

Great location. Christian the bartender made great drinks and was very friendly. Nice buffet breakfast daily. A short walk to the beach where towels and chairs are included. An umbrella is optional for $15. Quaint rooms.
