For the price, amnenities, service and location this cannot be beat. Fun atmosphere in the bustle of Ocean Drive, ocean view rooms see the sunrise, fancy cars and the muscle workouts on the beach. Unexpected extras included: Beach chairs, beach towels, full breakfast, free day at Equinox gym, free HH drinks... Wow! We were spoiled and no complaints.

Location is fantastic. Right on Ocean Drive. Hotel staff are friendly, and always on hand to lend a hand from check-in to check-out. Happy hour is a welcome respite from regular Ocean Drive price gouging. Breakfast was also quite good. This is not one of those places that throws on a few rolls and cereals on a table and calls...

We spent one night in South Beach prior to a cruise and chose the Pelican because of its location and reasonable rates. The front desk service was excellent as were all other members of the staff. Our room was extremely clean and, being located in the back, very quiet. We enjoyed our two free drinks each at Happy Hour and... More

This place exceeded our expectations. Let me start by saying this: Expect to spend at Sobe unless you eat on Washington ave local spots and skip shopping. We came without a budget set and had an awesome time! The 2 free drinks at happy hour were very strong. I only needed one. The strip is lively, and the food is... More

If you want to be in Miami with pleasant people at your service, you are at the right place to have good times. All rooms are different, the breakfast is perfect and they bring to you all what you need for the beach. I will come back next time with pleasure.

We all know hotels in Miami beach don't come cheap and neither does the pelican but in terms of value for money it certainly hits the mark. Check in was easy with clear explanations of hotel amenities. The location can't be beat if you're looking for the hustle and bustle of Miami beach life. Located right on ocean drive with... More

If you want a Marriott or a Four Seasons or a hip contempo hotel, you don't want to stay at the Pelican. But if you want to experience South Beach, the Pelican is perfect. It's right in the middle of Ocean Dr., one door down from the venerable News Café. Everything about it is funky, the little bar, the tiny... More

We had a great time at the Pelican while we were there. The only slight downfall is the age of the people staying in South Beach seemed to be the younger party crowd. It was great for a few days but more than that would have been way to much. I am 36 and my partner 25 we tend to... More
