Just checked out of the Pelican Hotel at South Beach Miami. Set in a buzzing area on the happening Ocean Drive, the taxi from the Greyhound bus station cost me a whopping USD35 plus USD2 tip. I reached the hotel at 12.30pm and was told by the receptionist that the check-in time was 3pm and that the room was not... More

Great Hotel! The staff works really hard to please each guest. Right across from the beach. Happy hour is FREE and breakfast is FREE! Will definitely stay here again!!not to mention you get 20% off in the restaurant as a hotel guest. Pedro, Carlos and Louch were wonderful!

Tried the salmon with crab meat and spinach and was delicious! Room was clean and equipped with most basic amenities including free... More

I read all the reviews and the street was very noisy. We had a back room and everything was good. The room was small, but had everything we needed. A/C worked well. Clean. The Happy Hour Cocktails were amazing and the breakfast very good. Staff very friendly. My husband and I felt a little on the old side for this... More

Paid our second visit to this great hotel in June 2015, and again was delighted with our stay. Staff is friendly, room was amazing, with a great view of the ocean and the small park across the street. Every room is a different theme, which is not everyone's taste, but we love it. Rooms come with free wifi, breakfast with... More

We stayed at the Pellican for three nights in a queen ocean view suite #303. Room was great. Just the right amount of funky Art Deco style I wanted for a fun stay in South Beach. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They even went out of their way to make me special hot honey and lemon drinks for... More

We stayed one night at the Pelican Hotel. It was the cheapest hotel of the ones we stayed at Miami Beach although when I was tracking it price it did vary wildly. On some days it could be almost twice the price we paid. The plusses it has ranges from breakfast included in the room price, two free happy hour... More

I've just returned from my second week-long stay at The Pelican and wanted to share what a fantastic time I had The staff are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. From check-in, to the bar and everything in between, we were made to feel so welcome. Cocktail hour each day gives you two free drinks from their extensive... More
