5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for 3 night, the last weekend in may and had a wonderful time. Staff was top notch. This hotel is right in the heart of South Beach, you get 2 drinks at happy hour, breakfast was awesome, you also get two beach chairs and towels. When ever I come to Miami this will be the place stay

We stayed here in late May. The room was small but funky and adequate. The rooms are individually decorated in retro styles - not sure if other rooms have this issue but the shower although big was super temperamental - we were each scalded several times during each use - or maybe this is part of the retro charm?? Although... More

Room is very small and very pricey for what it is, even with the inclusions offered (sparkling water, happy hour, etc). Nowhere to store items in the bathroom, making it very difficult to do your makeup/get ready etc easily. Good location for beach but a little far from Lincoln and other parts. Staff were very accommodating. If I had paid... More

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 Just not a big fan of how outdated everything was.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
