This is the second time I stayed at the Pelican. Both rooms have been unique, clean, well stocked and charming. As soon as you walk up to the hotel everyone is friendly and helpful. I would suggest paying the valet $25. It is so much easier than looking for parking. Also, everything you need is in walking distance. This hotel... More

I stayed at the pelican for four nights. The hotel is in the middle of everything. I enjoyed the free happy hour and breakfast. Also they provided beach towel and chair at the beach which for me was a plus. The bartender Chris was great along with all the staff and housekeeping. I would definitely stay here again

I have no words to describe how much I enjoyed my stay at the Pelican. There are several things I loved: - Location: Impossible to be at a better located, right in the heart of Ocean Drive, across the street from the beach. - Staff: Everybody was very helpful and really friendly. - Cool decoration: The rooms look really modern...

South Beach is one of our favorite places to visit and decided to come for my birthday this year. We've stayed at many great hotels in SB and always looking for something new. I noticed Pelican and all they offered, free breakfast, happy hour drinks, beach chairs, unique rooms, good price and central location on Ocean Drive. I have to... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and the accommodations were amazing! The free drinks at happy hour and free breakfast were a nice addition to the stay. The rooms were clean and staff was friendly. The only con, is the $27 valet. (But that's probably normal for the area.)

Besides the great location - across from the beach and near many of the city's hot spots, this place has unique rooms and wonderful amenities. Free breakfast (which was also delicious), two free drinks each happy hour, beach towels, and free beach chairs - all provided by a friendly and courteous staff. We used Hotwire to book and had no...

Loved the retro decor of the place, everything has been kept in retro style, from the original furniture, to the refurbished plumbing and lighting, but everything works very well. The staff was amazing, easy going and extra kind. The location is about as central as you want to be in South Beach. it could be maybe noisy , but i... More

I'm not one to write reviews for every single place we've stayed, but I have to share the absolute wonderful experience at The Pelican! From the wonderful valet who parked our car, to the cheery and funny guys at the Front Desk! Now, our friend Cristian who is not only the bartender but a true concerned guide, advisor, mixologist and... More
